Book Description

#1 Wattpad Romance * The Fault in Our Stars "Extraordinary Love" Reading list selection
   
Falling in love changes everything...
   
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.
   
Anna Sanders expected an anonymous (and uneventful) senior year until she crossed paths with rich-and-sexy Jack Kyser and his twin sister Lucy.

Pulling Anna into their extravagant lifestyle on the Gulf Coast, Lucy pushed Anna outside her comfort zone, and Jack showed her feelings she'd never experienced... Until he mysteriously withdrew.

Anna turned to her internship at the city paper and to her old attraction for Julian, a handsome local artist and rising star, for distraction. But both led to her discovery of a decades-old secret closely guarded by the twins' distant, single father. 

A secret that could permanently change all their lives.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Gossip Girl meets VC Andrews in this contemporary 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
   
"Angst, longing, jealousy, mystery, secrets, love triangles, sexy scenes! Could you even ask for more? Well you can because it is also very well written and fast paced..." --Nichole, Book Addicts Not So Anonymous
   
"I truly enjoyed this one! I thought the characters were intriguing, the mystery and story were interesting and definitely have ME WANTING MORE!!!!!!!" --Mandy, The Romance Bookie

From the Back Cover

A half-step, and I was in his arms. A glint of blue and his mouth covered mine. I trembled as his hands traveled up the sides of my dress to my shoulders, then lightly cupped my cheeks.
   
His lips moved to the corner of my mouth, then my jaw, and a tiny noise slipped from my throat. I was tense and electric, and all I could think of were his soft lips touching me, my fingers exploring his hard stomach through the thin cotton shirt he wore. 
   
His mouth traveled to my ear, where he kissed me lightly before whispering, "Let's sit." 
   
Taking my hand, he sat in the sand and pulled me onto his lap, and I watched as he unbuttoned his shirt, revealing his lined chest. Then he took my hands and placed my palms flat on his warm skin. Gorgeous.
   
"Now you," he said, and his arms circled to my back. I was breathing fast as he slid my zipper down, and my straps fell to the sides. My head was so light, I could barely breathe. This was all new to me, and there was no way I was stopping it. My shoulders shook, and I looked down. 
   
"Are you afraid?" he whispered. 
  
I shook my head no, lying. He cupped my chin, tilting my face up, and looked into my eyes. The breeze blew his golden hair around his cheeks, and I was convinced this was what an angel looked like.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware, whiny heroine ahead June 10, 2013
Format:Paperback
Dragonfly follows Anna in her tumultuous relationship with the son of the town's wealthiest business man. But the closer she gets to him, the more she realizes that though her body is saying yes, maybe her mind should be saying no...and that Julian, her artist friend may just be the perfect guy for her. Then she gets an internship at a local newspaper and is assigned to assist on a bicentennial story that brings up questions she doesn't know the answers to, but is determined to find out.

I am currently having an internal debate over whether to give this two stars or three. Mainly I hate giving two stars, but I feel like this really deserves that. My biggest issue with the novel was the main character, Anna. She was so self-centered and immature and just stupid at times that I couldn't sympathize with her at all. Watching her jump back and forth between Jack and Julian when it was clear that Julian was the better guy was not only irritating, but almost infuriating. First she thinks Julian is hot, but would never be interested in her....then he shows interest, but she meets Jack and he is oh so drool-worthy and she just has to have him, Julian be damned. But the whole time, Jack is doing that push and pull thing where he likes her, but doesn't want a commitment and he keeps saying his life is too complicated to bring her into that crap, but you never really see it, besides the assholic father and older brother, his life doesn't seem too bad. And Anna just goes on and on and on about Jack and how she can't get him out of her head and then they split and she is all whiny and piney and Boohoohoo. I just found her whole personality grating. Maybe I'm too old for this kind of drama, but it all felt so fake and overdone to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm ready for Undertow!!! June 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The synopsis and excerpt of Dragonfly had me quite intrigued to read it so I was overjoyed when I was asked to be a part of its blog tour. Dragonfly starts out in almost typical fashion of a young girl who thinks she is simply a "plain jane," who all of a sudden finds herself in the middle of a love triangle.

Dragonfly is the story of Anna. She is a high school student who is more focused on her studies and becoming a journalist than on boys. This all changes when she sees Jack. Her world begins to turn upside down as she finds herself only wanting to be around Jack despite his disappearing acts.

Enter Julian. Anna was his tutor and she believed that was the extent of their relationship. Once he begins to see Anna spending time with Jack, he feels it is time for him to make a move. Who will Anna choose? Why does it take her so long to decide?

Dragonfly by Leigh T. Moore has potential but it did leave me feeling slightly disappointed. I wanted to like Anna's character but there were quite a few times that she annoyed me because the choice was quite clear between Jack and Julian. Despite that, Dragonfly was a good read and it got quite interesting once the storyline of the parents started to develop. I am looking forward to reading more about their story once Undertow is released later this summer!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Dragonfly in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Dragonfly December 27, 2013
By Bianca
Format:Kindle Edition
Dragonfly is not your typical YA (Young Adult) novel where it’s all butterflies and roses. It has deep dark secrets, suspense, and even a bit of a love triangle. Just a little. Reading this reminded me why I enjoy YA. It has been months since I’ve picked one up and this was a refreshing read.

Anna Sanders is a high school student that is feeling lonely her senior year because one of her closest friends has moved away. Her goal is to finish high school, get scholarships and go to college where she plans to major in Journalism. However, when she meets the gorgeous twin brother and sister, Jack and Lucy Kyser, her life will never be the same.

Anna is immediately drawn to Jack, as he is to her. However, as we find out, his family has dark secrets (some unknown to him) and Jack is determined to stay away from Anna. He knows he wants her, but she deserves better. Then there is Julian. Sweet, romantic, artistic, Julian! He is completely blown away by Anna and she has a hard time seeing this. They’ve always been nothing but friends, but it becomes clearly obvious he wants her, in every non-friendly way possible.

Don’t let the slight love triangle throw you off. I know this is a sensitive subject for some, but the author does a great job with this. Anna loves someone who pushes her away, yet she feels she isn’t deserving of the one who undeniably wants to be with her. So who’s my pick? I’m Team Julian of course!

As we get deeper into the story, Anna discovers the Kyser family secret. This could cost her both men she truly and deeply cares about. I absolutely cannot wait for book 2. Yes, this ends on a sort of cliffhanger, but it is the kind where you cannot wait to dig into the next one. I recommend this story to anyone looking for a wonderfully written YA novel.

More About the Author

Leigh Talbert Moore wrote her first graphic novel at the age of nine--about a lady scientist burned by acid. Sadly, the text of "Fury Woman" was lost, and Leigh's novelist aspirations went on hiatus.

Then, after a decade working in journalism, editing, marketing, and public relations, she began writing books again, and in 2009 completed Dragonfly. Today, Leigh is the author of several popular young adult and new adult novels, all with a strong romantic slant.

She lives with her husband and two young children in the middle of the country, where she conjures new worlds, characters, and situations while playing chauffeur, chaperone, group activity leader, and referee. And she's still trying to remember the plot of Fury Woman...
