Plot: 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.
- "My biggest fear had been treating Julian like a rebound guy. Was my brain trying to tell me that was exactly what I was doing? Everything I believed felt shaken. It was like I’d been betrayed by my own body when I was completely unconscious and powerless."
The good: Intriguing, suspenseful, and there's much more romance featured between Julian and Anna which I liked. <3
The bad: Some minor pacing issues but nothing much if at all.
**A short, cute excerpt that made me giddy:
- “Tell me the truth. Do you just love me for my money?”I laughed. “Of course!” Then he tickled me and I screamed. We both dropped to sitting on the sand, me in his lap. My arms were around his neck, and his hands held my waist.“Julian LaSalle, I’ve loved you since I wouldn’t look at you in algebra class,” I said softly. He leaned closer, and I kissed him. “I wanted to die every time you said something to me. That’s why I hid behind my books. I’ve been crazy in love with you for years.”He laughed and shook his head. “Life is so screwed up.”“But somehow it all seems to work out.”
Leading up to "Watercolor," I felt that where "Dragonfly" set the stage for the story and"Undertow" served as the catalyst where many secrets of the past were brought to light; "Watercolor," on the other hand, was more so where characters' choices and secrets fluctuated and culminated altogether.
During the course of this book, you will notice that a lot of the time what it came down to was making a decision and standing by it. It was more less controversial than "Undertow" but it still had it's elements of surprise that kept me guessing as to what was to come next.
Very solid read! "Watercolor" lived up to my expectations. It was nicely crafted and developed and I enjoyed the dynamics between the characters and the story.
"Watercolor" will take you on a sweet and emotional journey filled with an interesting plot and unique story elements that will test and challenge the characters in every way.
I'm now super curious as to where Ms. Moore plans to go with this series next. I just read the sneak peak for the next book in the series, "Mosiac," and I have to say that my interest is peaked!
"The future never works out as expected.
People are not always how they seem.
And time changes everything."
