Watercolor by Leigh T. Moore





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.



I looked up and tried to reach for him, but he caught my hand. “Will you stop talking?” His blue eyes had softened, and I closed my mouth, waiting. “Now what did you just say?”


My heart beat so fast it hurt. “I said I love you.”


He lifted my face to kiss me, and a huge wave of relief rushed through my body. “I heard that part.” His lips curved into the smile that melted me every time. “And it’s about time you said it.”


“I’ve said it before.” I softly touched his lips, remembering the night at the hospital. “You just weren’t conscious the first time.”


He caught my hand and kissed my finger before lowering both. “But that’s not what I meant. Did you say you’ve never done it before?”


I pushed back and looked down, embarrassed. “If you make fun of me, I’m leaving.”


His laugh was as easy as his smile. “But we’re at your house.”


“Then I’ll go to your house.” I tried to stand, but he caught my waist.


“I’ll just come get you.” He pulled me back down against him, and I put my cheek on his bare chest. I couldn’t look at him. My heart was still beating too hard.


After a few moments, he spoke. “Is that what you said?”


I nodded, and he leaned back against the wall next to me with an exhale. I slid into his side and under his arm, and we were silent a few moments longer. I chewed my lip, staring at my socks and waiting. Would he leave now? Say it was too much? He couldn’t deal with this?


“So all that time, you and Jack never—”


“No.” I didn’t want to go there. With Jack, it had been over. He’d brought me home.


Julian turned and kissed my head. His arm was across my shoulders. “I don’t care. I just always thought he was the problem.”


My brow clutched. “In what way?”


“Like he was why you held back. I thought you missed him or something. And really it was—”


“I didn’t. I don’t miss him.” These last few weeks had shown me exactly who I missed and just how much. And he was here beside me.



I was so excited to read Watercolor by Leigh T. Moore because I’ve been waiting to see how Anna and Julian’s story would further develop. In the first two books (Dragonfly and Undertow), Moore did an exceptional job of making sure the reader felt a personal connection to the teenage characters, but somehow in Watercolor, I felt myself rooting for (elder) Mr. Kyser.

The book moves along at a steady pace. It is sweet, captivating and with just enough drama to keep you interested. One thing I find quite admirable about Watercolor and the other books in the series, is that it proves that not every book within the YA genre needs to be have graphic sex in it for it be a good book!!! I tip my hat off to Leigh T. Moore and I look forward to reading Mosaic!!!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Watercolor in exchange for an honest review.
