Watercolor (Dragonfly, #3)
Blurb (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.

And Jack.

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.

Watercolor (Dragonfly, #3)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This is book 3 in the ‘Dragonfly’ series.
Anna and Julian are now together, but how long can their relationship survive when Anna is hiding such a huge secret from Julian – the real identity of his biological father.

This was a good YA contemporary romance, although I liked the romance more than the rest of the storyline.

I liked Anna and Julian in this story, and I appreciated how difficult it must have been for Anna to hide such a huge secret from Julian, especially when she could see how much not knowing was affecting him.

The storyline in this was okay, but I liked the romance more than the other storylines. Anna and Julian were so sweet together and had such great chemistry. The scenes where they were intimate were really good, and the way their relationship developed fitted in really well with the rest of the story. There were some sexual scenes, but they weren’t explicit, and the whole thing felt really natural and loving, which was exactly how it should have been.

The main storylines other than the romance surrounded Julian’s mom sneaking out to meet a ‘mystery’ boyfriend, Anna’s indecision over college, and Anna’s anxiety over keeping the secret of who Julian’s father was. It was obvious that eventually Julian was going to find out what was going on, and that Anna had been hiding the truth from him, and it was obvious that he wasn’t going to be happy about it. I didn’t enjoy some of the bits revolving around these storylines as much as the romance, and my attention waned a bit.
The ending was okay, and it was reasonably happy, and it will certainly be interesting to see what happens in the next instalment.
Overall; a good YA contemporary romance.
6.75 out of 10.


  1. It's hard to keep up the high standard throughout, I guess. Well, there is always next time. :-)

  2. As long as the romance it awesome, I don't mind an okay storyline sometimes
