All the Pretty Lies
“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?

This book can be read as a stand-alone and resolves in a happy ending, so read on and enjoy. It also includes a sample of book 2, ALL THE PRETTY POSES, releasing January 26, 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars great read 21 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well this book won't disappoint you I have read all of this authors books and everyone has been great . When Sloane decides to get a tattoo she walks into Hemi's shop and the sparks fly. Hemi doesn't want to be involved with anyone but something about Sloane intrigues him but is it her or her family he is interested in ? Definitely worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars This gave me a serious book hangover! 14 Nov 2013

There's hot and then there's Hemi!!
Hang on to your ovaries girls, they're about to go nuclear.

All The Pretty Lies is one damn HOT read...I FREAKIN' LOVED IT!!!

Michelle, you've done it again!! Hemi and Sloane scorched their way off my kindle and damn near burned my eyeballs!
Once I started ATPL I couldn't put it down til I'd finished at 3.25 a.m.! I laughed, drooled & dribbled, cried and shouted my way through this book. ( I may have drooled & dribbled some more) Hemi Spencer kept me away from Sons of Anarchy and Jax Teller for over TWO weeks as all I could think of was Hemi. And he's STILL on my mind weeks and weeks later!!

Seeing M. Leighton written on the front of a book is like seeing a stamped seal of excellence. You just know you're in for a damn good read.
I have read some awesome books by some equally awesome authors but as soon as I read the first few lines of a M. Leighton novel it's like coming home from vacation. I feel safe in the knowledge that I'm in for a great read filled with twists, tension and a SHED load of hot sexiness.

All The Pretty Lies tells the story of Sloane Locke and Hemi Spencer. They meet when Sloane, deciding to rebel against her very protective Dad and 3 brothers (who all just happen to be cops) on her 21st birthday, walks into Hemi's tattoo parlour wanting a tattoo.

Straight away you can feel their chemistry staring to sizzle. I will never look at a tattooist's chair or a sauna again without having VERY improper thoughts!
Hemi recognises a kindred soul in Sloane and agrees, against his better judgement, to her request to teach her the art and techniques of tattooing. Hemi decides Sloane is off limits, as the young and innocent type is not his scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good story x 6 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this story with a great twist at the end. Sloane was raised in a house full of men, now 21 she is going to spread her wings & show her family she is not a little girl anymore! Hemi is hot,tatted and all male. he likes what he sees but it's who she is that gets his interest peaked.
I am definitely going to buy the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the prettiness 27 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This has been on my kindle for quite a while but every time I look through all of my books I always feel drawn to it and I think it’s because the cover is eye-catching, it’s also quite beautiful so suggests that the story might be too. It’s also the first of Michelle Leighton’s books that I’ve read. Michelle is another author that I’ve been introduced to via twitter and I’ve always seen good reviews of her books.

All The Pretty Lies is the first in Michelle’s Pretty series and is all about Sloane Locke and Hemi Spencer. Sloane and Hemi are strangers to each other until Sloane decides that she’s lived under her father and brother’s rules for too long.

I instantly liked Sloane, I loved that she was chasing after the independence that she craved and going at it with her whole heart. She has been living under what seems like house arrest since the death of her mother and she’s ready to set herself free. There was always a little bit of mystery around Sloane and her family which does get revealed later on in the story but it kept you hooked while reading.

Sloane decides to get tattooed and that is how we are introduced to Hemi. Can I just ask here, what is it with tattoo artists?! Hemi is no exception to the smoking hot stereotype depicted in many romance novels and the tension between the characters is instant and palpable. I loved that. Hemi is a few years older than Sloane which draws a nice parallel between them, their relationship never seemed to be forced at all and that instant connection threads through the entire story. Their story is told from both points of view which I love as it allows you a sneak peek into a guy’s mind but also lets their story develop nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved very much !!!!! 29 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was very interesting story from the beginning to the end. It was written very well and showed very interesting characters in this story. I am loving books which make you move into another world, this was that kind of story. I loved it that she gave us another great love story and I was enjoying myself while reading. All of the emotions and feelings felt real for me , so don't wait and have it a go if you didn't read it yet.
