Tour! A Review, Teaser, & Excerpt of Dragonfly by Leigh T. Moore

Publication Date: June 6, 2013
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
Three bad things I learned this year:
-People you trust lie, even parents.
-That hot guy, the one who’s totally into you, he might not be the one.
-Things are not always how they appear.

Three good things I learned this year:
-Best friends are always there for you, even when they’re far away.
-That other hot guy, the one who remembers your birthday, he just might be the one.
-Oh, and things are not always how they appear.

When her best friend moves at the start of senior year, Anna Sanders resolves to keep her head down and follow her plans through graduation. Until Lucy, a beautiful, mysterious girl, and Jack, her gorgeous twin brother, transfer to Anna’s school.
The two draw Anna into their rich, extravagant life on the Gulf Coast with their distant, single father. Anna can’t resist falling for Jack, even after he pushes her away.

Just when she’s finally learning to be strong, Anna uncovers their father’s closely guarded secret and is pulled back--this time even closer. His secret could change all their lives.
A new mature-YA/New Adult contemporary romance series, coming June 2013!

“Gossip Girl meets VC Andrews in this new adult family saga. Love, lies, and betrayal become the new normal when Anna enters the world of Jack and Lucy Kyser.” –Magan Vernon, international bestselling author of The Only Exception.

My Review:
Dragonfly is the first book in the Dragonfly Series by Leigh T. Moore. This is a story full of secrets, romance, and new beginnings. The romance is a love triangle, and I have a clear favorite. Team Julian all the way. I liked Jack at first, but how he treated Anna really frustrated me. She kept going back to him, which frustrated me even more. She's a strong person, and I like her as a character. I just hope she grows some more back bone in her responses to Jack as the series progresses. The plot is full and completely engaging. There are so many secrets and mysteries behind the scenes of this story. Everyone has a skeleton or two in their closet and most of them seem to interweave into each others lives whether they know it yet or not. The story was well put together and thought out. Dragonfly was sort of like a puzzle. Every one behaved the way they did for a reason, and the more you read the more it all pieces together. It kept me glued to the book.

The Excerpt:
Falling in Love Changes Everything…

“C’mon,” Julian said, helping me stand. “Let’s blow off this party and catch a movie or go to Scoops. This isn’t our scene.”

I shook my head. “I just really want to go home.” The tears were trying to start again. “Can I just go home now?”

“Sure,” he said, holding my cheek. I took a limping step, and he stopped. “Does it hurt to walk?” 

My leg was throbbing. I nodded, looking down, and before I realized what was happening, he was lifting me in his arms. 

“Julian, wait,” I held his shoulders. “I’m too heavy!” 

“It’s okay,” he said, walking on. I sighed and leaned my head against his shoulder. I didn’t feel like fighting. Gentle pressure against my temple, and he’d kissed me. “You’ll get over this,” I heard him say under his breath.
