All Things Pretty Part 1&2 by M. Leighton

Goodreads Summary:
**The total length of this novel is 348 pages. The first part (here) is 57,000 words and the additional FREE part two is 26,000 words.**

Pretending to be something they’re not, afraid to trust anyone completely, destined to tear each other apart– this is the story of unlikely love and unbearable consequences.

Sig Locke is a cop. He was raised by a cop and all his brothers are cops. He bleeds blue, believes in right and wrong, and sees in black and white, never in shades of gray.

But that was before he met Tommi.

Tommi, with her long legs and bright green eyes, she captured Sig’s interest from the moment he saw her. Even after he discovered who she was–the girlfriend of a drug dealer, the beauty behind a criminal–he still found her utterly irresistible. What Sig doesn’t know, however, is that she has a secret even a cop can’t uncover. 

Tommi Lawrence hasn’t had an easy life, and it only got more complicated the day she met Sig. She learned long ago that she can’t trust anyone. Her gut tells her that Sig is no exception, her heart tells her that he is. But that was before she found out his real identity.

Can love be forged in a fire of lies? Or will the truth destroy them both?

My Review:
I loved Tommi! She was an amazing female character. She did not have a typical childhood. She had to grow up very fast after something happened to her Mother which left her in need of complete care. Which Tommi did by herself.That is an insanely hard thing to do. It is time consuming and both mentally and physically taxing. She also has a brother with Asperger's Syndrome. She does not have it easy. So what's a girl to do? Well, date a criminal with a lot of money could only help right? There is way more to the story that you will figure out when you read the book! Tommi did the best she could with what she had. Sig is a big hot hunk of a guy! Oh, and he's a cop! I do love a man in uniform. Sig meets Tommi by accident and is instantly attracted to her. When he finds out who she's dating only adds to it. He sees an in to go under cover and try to bring down Tommi's man. Will he succeed? How long can he ignore his feelings for Tommi?

Tommi and Sig have sexual chemistry from minute one when they meet. It took so long for them to finally hook up! I mean it felt that way haha. You have to look at the whole story I guess. Sig is assigned to be Tommi's security and if anything happens between them it could result in both of them dead! Tommi's boyfriend is a dangerous guy. She doesn't want to risk her family or Sig to get wheat she wants but, how long will they last?? Let me just say that the romance scenes in this one are scorching hot! Seriously! 

So much happened that I never thought would. The back story was great and full of "wow" moments. Especially the end. I was stunned by what happened. Completely blindsided! I love it when a book is able to do that. Keeps you interested.

This was another great addition to this series. I loved Sig in the other books and I was glad to finally get his story. Be sure to get part 2 because that is where then end of the book is! I was like OMG! Where is the rest haha.
