My Review of: All the Pretty Lies by Michelle Leighton!

Series: Pretty #1
By: M. Leighton

Live, no regrets

Sloane Locke has led a sheltered life. However, with a history like hers, she can understand why her brothers and her father want so much to protect her. She has gone along with it for twenty long years, but those days are over. For the girl who never makes promises, Sloane has made a pact with herself that things will change on her twenty-first birthday. So when the clock strikes midnight, Sloane strikes out to spread her wings and break a few rules.

In addition to inking skin, Hemi Spencer possesses many talents. Controlling himself has never been one of them. It’s never had to be. He’s lived a life of indulgence for as long as he can remember. Right up until tragedy struck. Now, he’s nothing but controlled. He’s a man on a mission, one who will let nothing and no one stand in his way. 

Nothing in their lives could’ve prepared Sloane and Hemi for what they’d find in each other—distraction and obsession, love and possession. But the one thing they can’t find is a future. Neither one has been totally honest. And they’ll soon learn that the devil is in the details. In the details and in the lies.

How far will two people go to live in the now when the now is all they’ve got?

Sloane Locke has been sheltered for so long, all she wants is to be free to explore the worlds on her own terms, but every time she tries her brothers and father reel her back in, and lock her down tight. But she has a little plan, she is twenty one now, old enough to make her own decisions, and she isn't going to let her family hold her back this time, the first stop on her list is a local tattoo shop. But what she finds there is far more the tattoo she was hoping would give her a little taste of freedom, instead she finds the first step to whole new life she has dreaming about for so damn long...

The moment Hemi Spencer's eye's connect with the beauty who waltzes into his shop he senses a deep connection there, one that has him more than a little excited to explore, but then with further inspection he sees an innocence that scares him. He then decides that a guy like him would be no good for a girl like her, touching her would be a mistake of epic proportions, but then she proposes a little deal of sorts. One that he just can't refuse...

All the Pretty Lies is a steamy and suspenseful tale that will lure you in from the first page and keep you fully engaged until the last; once I got started I just couldn't bring myself to stop! Once again Ms. Leighton has dazzled me with her beautiful words and exquisitely crafted characters, I absolutely adored this couple! This one has it all; tender moments to melt your heart, steamy moments to curl the toes, suspenseful moments to keep you guessing, and tons of heart that is good for the soul. Highly recommend you get your hands on this one, it's a winner on all fronts!!

I requested an advanced copy of this title, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.
