Review: Watercolor is the third book in the Dragonfly series, and they must be read in order. If you have not read the first two beware of spoilers below.
Dragonfly focuses on Jack, Julian, and Anna. Undertow, on the parents. Then in Watercolor the focus is on the blossoming relationship between Julian and Anna. But Anna is hiding a huge secret from Julian, and it weighs on her heavily.
This series is just full of drama, and at its heart is Anna. At times I wanted to shake her I was so frustrated, I felt like she was being fickle. But she grew on me. She was always meddling in the previous books, sticking her nose where it didn’t belong, but I think she realized she bit off more than she could chew. Her knowledge that Bill Kyser was Julian’s dad and he didn’t know it tormented her. She hated keeping this secret. And I think she knew she would have been better off not knowing. Why couldn’t I just have a normal life, a normal boyfriend, the things you see on after-school specials. Instead I had Jack, who’d spun my head then jerked me around. I had Julian, who I loved and couldn’t tell the truth about something that was tearing him up inside. And now I had fake friends spying on me and getting me in trouble…
But at its heart is a heartwarming first love story. And I fell in love with Julian right alongside Anna. He was such a sexy charming young hero. *sigh*
This entire series is VERY unique. I have never read anything quite like it. The storyline is extremely original, and fascinating. And it’s just keeps drawing me in further with each book. AND OMG there is a preview of Mosaic, the final book in this series, and WoW! I was blown away, and devastated. I mean I cannot believe Leigh did this to these characters so early in the book and then teased us with it!!!!!
I CANNOT wait until it’s released! I’m dying over here!!!
Overall, I really liked this series and this installment and highly recommend you read Watercolor if you have read the first two. You will not believe what she has in store for us in Mosaic… And, like the first two, I have a hard time deciding what age group this novel belongs in. But if I had to, I would categorize this as a Young Adult novel with a few steamy scenes. The characters are seniors in high school and are sexually active so I don’t think it’s appropriate for younger teens. Dragonflies meant deeper understanding. They meant new beginnings, and in some cultures they meant good luck.~StacyHgg
