(Source: I own a copy of this book.) This is book 3 in the ‘Dragonfly’ series. Anna and Julian are now together, but how long can their relationship survive when Anna is hiding such a huge secret from Julian – the real identity of his biological father. This was a good YA contemporary romance, although I liked the romance more than the rest of the storyline. I liked Anna and Julian in this story, and I appreciated how difficult it must have been for Anna to hide such a huge secret from Julian, especially when she could see how much not knowing was affecting him. The storyline in this was okay, but I liked the romance more than the other storylines. Anna and Julian were so sweet together and had such great chemistry. The scenes where they were intimate were really good, and the way their relationship developed fitted in really well with the rest of the story. There were some sexual scenes, but they weren’t explicit, and the whole thing felt really natural and loving, which was exactly how it should have been. The main storylines other than the romance surrounded Julian’s mom sneaking out to meet a ‘mystery’ boyfriend, Anna’s indecision over college, and Anna’s anxiety over keeping the secret of who Julian’s father was. It was obvious that eventually Julian was going to find out what was going on, and that Anna had been hiding the truth from him, and it was obvious that he wasn’t going to be happy about it. I didn’t enjoy some of the bits revolving around these storylines as much as the romance, and my attention waned a bit. The ending was okay, and it was reasonably happy, and it will certainly be interesting to see what happens in the next instalment. Overall; a good YA contemporary romance. 6.75 out of 10.

A good book, but a bridge book. Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. When I began it, I thought I was reading the final installment of the Dragonfly series, however, it was not the last book. I wish I had known that (my fault entirely) before getting into Watercolor. Watercolor was a good installment in the Dragonfly series. The reason I wish I had known it wasn’t the last book is because it seemed a bit slow, full of unrelated events, and I just wanted to get to the big reveal. I couldn’t imagine it only happening at the end of the book. There were quite a few events that occurred in Watercolor that felt unneeded but perhaps they will play a bigger role in the fourth book, Mosaic. I’m hoping those events (the fight involving Montage, Will’s constant unhappiness and interference between Bill and Anna, and Summer’s entire presence) will be explained later. Anna is still as curious and as naive as ever. She and Julian make a great couple though. They work together. I don’t know how she kept her secrets from him for so long. And I still don’t completely understand Alex’s reasoning behind her omissions. I can understand part of it but not really, especially considering Bill’s willingness. As I said, Watercolor was a good installment, but felt a bit like a bridge book in the series. I was hoping for more but I think that hope was because I didn’t realize there was another book. If I had realized that before I started reading (my fault for not knowing that), I would have had different expectations. But a good read that kept me interested until the end. Would I recommend it: I would recommend Watercolor, but you must read the first two books—Dragonfly and Undertow. Will I read it again: I will not but I can’t wait to read Mosaic. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

Holy macaroni! This is my favorite book of the Dragonfly series yet! Why? Oh, that's easy. Anna+Julian= LOTS of kissing. And we all know how much I like kissing. :D Ok, in all seriousness. I love how much Anna has matured and transformed from the first book. She is no longer obsessing over Jack Kyser (the rich bad boy who kept jerking her back and forth) and she is starting a new relationship with Julian. All sounds perfect, yes? Not exactly. Anna has knowledge of a powerful secret that could change a lot of lives- Julian's included. This book really shows just how much she is tormented by this fact and she tries to convince Julian's mom and dad to tell him the truth. While his dad is all for it, his mom is less than willing. She doesn't want Julian to have this information because she doesn't want it to change him. Yet, she doesn't see the insecurities Anna does. Julian has a right to know the secret, as the not knowing is inadvertently hurting him more. I adored Julian for pretty much the whole book. He is a great guy and is very patient with Anna, even after he finds out she is keeping things from him. There is one scene where I was quite irate with him, as what he does is completely out of character for him. Luckily, he redeemed himself, but I was still a little peeved about it. Boys. Sheesh. The big secret does come out in this book and I was really grateful for how Leigh handled it. Anna was in a difficult position and never wanted to keep it from Julian, but it wasn't her secret to tell either. The one thing that drove me crazy about Anna is her communication skills with Julian. Sure, she had to keep the big secret from him, but she is not upfront with him about other things and they could have avoided some of their problems had she just talked to him more! (Less kissing Anna- more talking!) While Anna has matured, she isn't perfect. She still struggles with lingering feelings for Jack, even though they are fleeting. Julian is becoming much more important to her than Jack ever could be and the pivotal moment she realizes that, she is hurting deeply. I definitely don't wish heartbreak on Anna, but sometimes in order to realize what you truly had, you have to see what it's like without. I am nervous about what the final book will bring, as Anna and Julian are going to be heading their separate ways for college. Anna will be attending school in New Orleans, while Julian will be in Savannah. Only time will tell if the two's relationship can withstand the distance between them or if outside forces will tear them apart. Both Anna and Julian are driven and quite stubborn, but I for one am holding out for their HEA. *Received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

Like the previous two books, I absolutely loved Watercolor. I am so completely attached to these characters and their stories. Watercolor was the perfect blend of drama and romantic anticipation. The whole series is actually. There's no way I could keep the secret from Julian. I'd feel like I was betraying him in a major way. Plus, Anna still has the letter from book two, so I was on pins and needles through most of the book. I just knew someone was going to find it or something was going to happen. What happened you ask? Shh. I'm not telling. The ARC of Watercolor by Leigh T. Moore was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

After the secrets and lies uncovered in Undertow, I just knew I would be in for some serious drama - and likely more than a little angst - in Watercolor. Before starting the book, I mentally prepared myself for the return of Jack, what I assumed would be the reappearance of Anna's feelings for him, and the likelihood that I would want to strange each and every one of the characters I've become so attached to for their behavior in this book. I was ready. Watercolor was very different than what I anticipated it would be. I thought I knew going in what type of storyline I was going to be getting, but I was so wrong! It was wonderful. It kept me guessing. There were smiles and squees and tears and just a bit of angst. It was everything I wanted - and more. "Julian LaSalle, I've loved you since I wouldn't look at you in algebra class," I said softly. He leaned closer, and I kissed him. "I wanted to die every time you said something to me. That's why I hid behind my books. I've been crazy in love with you for years." I absolutely adore Anna and Julian. As characters, they're perfect to me. They're realistic and relatable and likable (yes, I haven't always felt that way about Anna, but I do now). I love them together and Watercolor is the first book where we truly get a large dose of their relationship. Dragonfly was more Jack-focused (grr) and Undertow had so many complex pieces, most of which focused on the history of Julian's parents. The focus in Watercolor is on Anna and Julian and I loved (nearly every) minute. It took me through the ups-and-downs of their relationship, the inevitable uncovering of secrets that had been hidden for a very long time and the impact those secrets had on the characters I love so much. Because I don't want to give anything spoilery away, I'm not going to say more about the plot. All I will say is that it wasn't entirely predictable. It kept me guessing. Loose ends were wrapped up and secrets, lies and betrayals were addressed. There are some sweet scenes and a couple smoldering ones. I thought this was the last book in the series and I feel the story would have wrapped up nicely if it ended here. Then I saw there was a fourth book, Mosaic, being released in 2014. I read the sneak peek. Oh. My. God. I had no coherent thoughts. I still don't. There's a brilliant twist that just makes *so much sense* I don't know how I didn't see it all coming. The pieces of the puzzle are starting to fit together and I can't wait to see how it all turns out! ***I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.***
