Inkslinger Presents Leigh T. Moore's DRAGONFLY Blog Tour


ABOUT DRAGONFLY:

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.

Be watching for Undertow, Book 2 in the Dragonfly series, coming July 18!

DRAGONFLY 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.

My Review

5 of 5 Dragonfly

HOLY MOTHER OF PEARL! This is the first thing that comes to mind after I read Dragonfly. Leigh has such a way of writing that it draws you in and you can't help but be swept into a current and keep holding your breath until the last page has finished and you end up thinking Holy Hell what did I just read! I have to say right from the first page I was captivated by Dragonfly because it is a read like no other. There are so many twists and turns and secrets that with every page turn I was jumping for joy because I needed to get my mind wrapped around everything that was happening.

Dragonfly is a story about love, lies, and secrets and how things are not always as they seem. Anna is living a quiet life. She does not like where she is living and her only best friend and friend has moved away so she has to do senior by herself or so she thinks. While at the beach before her senior year is supposed to happen she meets the twins Jack and Lucy. They are beautiful and so full of life.

On her first day of school she is excited because she is part of the school newspaper and she just found out that Jack and Lucy are going to school with her. Anna is quiet so she does not talk to many people but she is excited to know that Jack and Lucy are going to school with her. She is totally crushing on Jack because he makes her feel things she has never felt before but all is not well in paradise because Jack is so hot and cold with her and he puts her through some serious crap but she puts up with it until she realizes that she can do better. Enters my love Julian he is the school bad boy artist who is hotter than Hades and maybe just maybe holding a flame for Anna.

While Anna is working on something for the school paper she uncovers something that may break this town apart. At first she is not sure what to do about but with the help of Julian Anna will make some tough decisions and when the secrets and lies all come to the forefront Anna is left reeling with what the consequences will be. She has unearthed secrets and lies that have been hidden and people want that to stay that way and they will do anything to keep it that way. What did Anna uncover? What will happen between her and Jack? Will Julian be there for her? All these things you will find out when you read Dragonfly and I promise you you will not be disappointed!

Favorite of all time - cruising the coast highway along the Pacific Ocean on a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Sounds like a great book.
