Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tour hosted by InkSlinger PR. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. When I began it, I thought I was reading the final installment of the Dragonfly series, however, it was not the last book. I wish I had known that (my fault entirely) before getting into Watercolor.
Watercolor was a good installment in the Dragonfly series. The reason I wish I had known it wasn’t the last book is because it seemed a bit slow, full of unrelated events, and I just wanted to get to the big reveal. I couldn’t imagine it only happening at the end of the book. There were quite a few events that occurred in Watercolor that felt unneeded but perhaps they will play a bigger role in the fourth book, Mosaic. I’m hoping those events (the fight involving Montage, Will’s constant unhappiness and interference between Bill and Anna, and Summer’s entire presence) will be explained later.
Anna is still as curious and as naive as ever. She and Julian make a great couple though. They work together. I don’t know how she kept her secrets from him for so long. And I still don’t completely understand Alex’s reasoning behind her omissions. I can understand part of it but not really, especially considering Bill’s willingness.
As I said, Watercolor was a good installment, but felt a bit like a bridge book in the series. I was hoping for more but I think that hope was because I didn’t realize there was another book. If I had realized that before I started reading (my fault for not knowing that), I would have had different expectations. But a good read that kept me interested until the end.
Will I read it again: I will not but I can’t wait to read Mosaic.
About the book – from Goodreads: Love is stronger than distance…
Finishing senior year is supposed to be the best time in a person’s life.
Finishing senior year as Julian’s girlfriend should’ve been the icing on the cake.
Knowing the secret that could change everything for him is the only thing threatening to spoil it all.
Until Jack returns.
Anna and Julian are together at last, and it’s as hot and happy as they knew it would be. The only problem is The Secret.
But while Anna is determined to fight for the guy she loves, she could still lose Julian when he discovers the truth she’s been helping to hide.
