Get Caught in UNDERTOW and #WIN! Plus Check Out My Undertow Review!

Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Publication Date: July 18, 2013
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
"An incredibly powerful sequel to Dragonfly. I found myself riveted to the last page by the dept of feeling, loss, tragedy, and love in this gorgeously woven story. This is a definite must-read." --Jolene Perry, author of Out of Play

Falling in love will pull you under...

Bill Kyser has a plan to take the sandy farms of his hometown and turn them into a world-class tourist destination--and become a billionaire in the process.
Alexandra "Lexy" LaSalle has a plan to change her life by becoming a world-famous artist.
Meg Weaver has a plan to hold onto Bill no matter what she has to do.

Three friends, three dreams.
One fatal decision will change all their lives forever.

In Dragonfly, Bill Kyser gave Anna the three journals that held the story behind the powerful developer's seclusion and the damaged lives of his family members.

Anna hoped to find a way for Julian to know the truth, but as she digs deeper into the tragic events of the past, she realizes silence could be the only option.

Now she's in an alliance with the man she formerly feared. And if Julian finds out what she knows, she could lose for good the boy she's starting to love.

My Review:
Undertow is the second book in the Dragonfly Series by Leigh T. Moore. You definitely need to read Dragonfly before reading Undertow. There is so much story in the details of this series that you'll really need to start from the beginning to get the full picture. Check out my review of Dragonfly.  I was worried when I found out this was going to be more about the parents and less about Anna and Julian, but it only opened up this world further to me. We don't get to see too much of Julian and Anna in this book (I missed them), but we need this tragic background information to go forward. Anna learns so much sensitive, new information from the journals Bill gave her... Whew! I definitely wouldn't want to be in her shoes. Things are about to get very tough for her in the coming books. In Undertow, you're given  the point of views of Meg, Bill, and Alex through their journals from just before Bill and Meg's wedding forward. This is all about their background story and why they behave the way they do in the present. I love that you basically have two plot lines going on within this series, which is no easy feat to pull off without confusing the reader, but Leigh T. Moore does it flawlessly!

Early Readers are saying...

"An incredibly powerful sequel to Dragonfly. I found myself riveted to the last page by the depth of feeling, loss, tragedy, and love in this gorgeously woven story. A definite must-read." --Jolene Perry, author of Out of Play

"As far as a second book for a series goes, Undertow knocked it out of the park." --Jessica, Bend in the Binding reviews

"My God I am so emotional! I have to give a huge KUDOS to Leigh because she knows how to write a story like no one's business!" --Tee, Diary of a Book Addict reviews

"Undertow pulled me under and left me gasping for air and wanting so much more. I couldn’t stop thinking about these characters, and now I’ll never be able to get a shirtless Bill Kyser out of my head." --Magan Vernon, bestselling author of The Only Exception

"Amazing! The characters are lovely, but they're also flawed--that sort of 'realness' and honesty breathes life into them and is truly refreshing to come across as a reader. A fantastic story with a unique execution." ---Kristin, Goodreads reviewer
