Dragonfly - Review & Giveaway - Indie Author Event

Dragonfly (Dragonfly #1)

by

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

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.

My Review...

So far everything that I have read from Leigh Talbot Moore has been awesome so I was excited for the opportunity to read this book.  It had an interesting synopsis and I didn't know what to expect from it.

It is set in a small town with big world of secrets.

For the first time Anna is alone and friendless until... she meets the twins Jack and Lucy. She is instantly drawn to them, especially Jack.

Finally she gets Jack's attention but...things aren't always what we assume. Every time she thinks she is getting closer he pushes her farther away.
At the same time she has gotten the attention of Julian whom she just thought was just her friend until he let her know his attentions.
She is drawn to both but doesn't know who to chose. Every time she thinks she is closer to a decision she is drawn back to the other.
While her own little love triangle is going on Anna is also discovering the world of secrets that have the potential to hurt many people in this small town.

In the end we are left with no concrete choices between the two while she is drawn deeper into the dark secrets.  Thank goodness book two Undertow is coming out July 18/13.
