Leigh Talbert Moore - Book Tour

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!

Review :

Looking for the perfect summers day read? Something you can bring to the beach or pool and just enjoy with an iced drink? Well then look further because this is the ideal book for you a nice, easy and simple read that will keep you entertained while you top up your tan.

Having lived in the shadow of her best friend Anna now has her chance to shine but can you really shine when you are unsure about who you are? This is a story about growing up and realizing who you are.

When new girl Lucy transfers to school with her hot twin brother (yes he is rather yummy)  not only does Anna become friends with Lucy, she is also attracted to her brother Jack - and then if that isn't enough her good friend Julian decides now is the time for him to make his move on Anna. Can you talk about a drastic change of events? 

Although Anna is a little . . . okay maybe very indecisive you understand her and realize that this is the first time she has had to deal with the opposite sex and her feelings - I remember being a teenager and it was not a very fun time for knowing what I wanted. 

Is there a love triangle? Yes but please don't let this put you off reading as this is something that deserves a read and I think it is a very promising start to a series and I cannot wait to read the second book which just so happens to be out July 18th.

What team did I end the book on, Team Julian but I would love to hear what team you ended up on?

4/5 stars.

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.
