Bookanista Review of DRAGONFLY by Leigh Talbert Moore

It's Thursday, and time for another Bookanista review. Today I am reviewing a FABULOUS New Adult book, DRAGONFLY by Leigh Talbert Moore. She is absolutely amazing - but before I get to it, here's the scoop on the other reviews today:
On to my review -

About DRAGONFLY by Leigh Talbert Moore
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.
Note: 65,000-word, full-length novel. Book #1 in the Dragonfly series. (Undertow, Book #2 is out now!) Recommended for readers 14+ for mature situations and sensuality.
What Others Are Saying (From Amazon):
"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

Why I liked it: 
Wow! Just WOW. Now, I have to confess, I am a big Leigh Talbert Moore fan. My guess is she could probably write a jingle and I would love it. That said, this book blew away ALL of my expectations. She is a master at building relationships between her characters. I love the little details in the story, the way the characters interacted, and the tension and romance dynamic. Masterful and everything I love is a GREAT contemporary!

Check it out on Amazon and other fine retailers!
