Book Review: All the Pretty Lies by M. Leighton

New Adult Romance
Date Published: 11/11/2013

“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?

My Rating: 4 *'s

My Review:

Okay wow, this book will knock your socks off. I absolutely adored Hemi and everything about him. At times his she's too good for me, I'm not going to go there attitude really got on my nerves, but I understood it. 

This is really a emotional story for Sloane. She lost her mother at such a young age and has been sheltered by her father and brothers, who are all police officers of course. This was really about her spreading her wings and becoming her own person. Her journey of self-discovery is really at the forefront of this novel and it overshadows everything for me making it super emotional. 

Now the romance, that comes in a close 2nd. ; ) Hemi and Sloane have an undeniable connection and while it is a slow building relationship, it is a believable one. 

Surprises... this novel definitely has them. Both main characters have secerets and when they come out it hits you hard.
