All the Pretty Poses by M Leighton Blog Tour

He never wanted to be a hero…until she needed him to be.

It took Kennedy Moore years to put her life back together after Reese Spencer shattered it.  But she did.  Now, years later, strong and independent, she is in pursuit of a single dream—to dance with the Altman American Dance Theater.  Unfortunately, Kennedy is learning that a girl from nowhere with no money and no contacts might never be able to reach her goal.  

That is, until Reese reappears, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Kennedy just can’t refuse.  In exchange for working on his yacht for a few short weeks, he’ll get her an audition with the famous dance troupe.  All Kennedy has to do is keep her head down, work hard and resist Reese.  That sounds easy enough, right?

Reese doesn’t want to make it easy for Kennedy.  Seeing her again has started a fire in his blood—an unwelcome one.  It took him years to forget about her before, so this time he has a plan.  It’s simple:  Get Kennedy on his yacht, seduce her, get her out of his system, move on with his life.  That sounds easy enough, right? 

But the one thing Reese didn’t plan for was Kennedy herself—a girl so strong yet so broken, she makes him want to rescue her, to take care of her.  To save her.  Even if he has to save her from himself.

Okay. . so I swear in writing this, I feel like i'm going to be pelted with rotten tomatoes. So I am preparing myself....

That's what you're thinking right? I know.. I'll get over it and move on. Anyway.. to the book!! So the story of Reese and Kennedy is heartbreaking and dramatic at so many different times. But BUT! there were so many times I was laughing. I loved the banter between Kennedy and Sig, and the fact that she was trying *ahem* and succeeding at making Reese jealous. 
OMG I got such a kick out of her making him jealous. But then.. BUT THEN.. the tables turn and Amber shows up. Then... THEN... that Claire chick shows up.  Here I was completely loving Reese. Loving how he took care of her. Loving how he was showing her so much of him. Loving that he was basically claiming her. Then.. Claire. And my heart stopped.

I could NOT believe it.. and the way he explained everything. OMG.. OH EMM GEEE!! Just stunned. He was so ... I don't know. Just NOT RIGHT! I'm proud of her for leaving. But ultimately, I am proud of him for turning around and doing what he did. I'm totally not telling you, that would be a MAJOR teaser. You know we don't do that!! I Could totally just.. let.. it .. slip.. 
Nope, not gonna happen. Just know that once the dirty laundry comes clean, your heart will be broken for what these two have had to endure. It's a sad sad tale that I can't believe his dad played such a role in. That smimey bastard! All in all I liked the book. It took me a little longer to get invested in it than it did in All the Pretty Lies. But, really, it was a good book. I just liked Hemi a little more :)
I give it 4 hearts
