Book Description:
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.

My Thoughts and Review:
I have been eagerly waiting for this book since finishing the last. I knew there was going to be more romance, more drama and just more awesomeness and I was ready for it. In fact, I did something I don't always do, I started this the same day I received it. I know what you are thinking, that doesn't sound too weird or strange but when you are a book reviewer is sadly is. You rarely seem to have time to just pick up a book just because you want to read it and not because you have an obligation in some shape or form. Not that I am complaining mind you because I also get to find and read some really great work as well.

Hence, how I came to meet Ms. Moore and appreciate her work. 

This series really is one of those that some how manages to capture your attention and grab hold once it has you in its clutches. I never thought after the first book that I would become as hooked and invested in Anna, Julian and Jack's life as I am now. And not only their lives but Bill, Lucy, Alex and Will's as well. 

It was nice to finally see Julian and Anna together, really together. Although everything isn't smooth sailing for them, after all, Anna does have a very big secret from Julian, they do develop a sweet romance. One that melted my heart and had me cheering for them the whole way through.

They have their ups and downs and I am still very much nervous about their future, after all the sneak peek at the next book was absolute torture for some many reasons, but I am trying to stay confidant that it will all work out in the end.

Ms. Moore once again brought a whole new depth into the story and really did capture my attention after the very first page. I know that this is one series that I will stick with until the end, even if that ending is a painful one. 

I can not wait to see what she has in store for Anna and Julian next.

Okay, okay, so I didn't feature a great spooky read but I did give you a love story that will keep you warm on those chilly October nights!

  1. I have heard great things about this series and I'm so glad you enjoyed this sequel :) Great review :)

  2. She's keeping a secret from him? THAT MAKES ME SO NERVOUS ALI! I tense up just thinking about what will happen when he finds out, and I don't even know what the secret is:) Glad you're enjoying this series so much, and yay for starting a book the day you receive it! You're so right, that's just not always possible and sometimes we just need to do it and read what we want to.

  3. It is kind of nerve racking Jenny!

    Thanks guys for stopping by. :)

  4. I almost never read a book the day I get it, so I SO understand that! I remember hearing some good things about this series. I do hate when they keep secrets though, so ditto what Jenny said. Still want to read this series though!

  5. It is so hard sometimes finding time for all these great reads!

  6. I love how this captured you from page one, and am so glad you are loving this series. The secret has me curious!

  7. I applaud you for dropping everything and jumping right in to read this! you must really love the series. I am glad it continues to make you happy!

  8. So often I have that same urge when I get a review copy I really want, to just toss my TBR pile and schedule aside and binge read, and I'm SO glad to hear you did that for this book, because it means the series is good enough to warrant that kind of TBR pile abandonment, and also because you deserve to do that every now and then! :-)

    I've really enjoyed your reviews of this series, and I'm still wondering whether I'd be a fan of Julian and Anna (and Jack!), and this is a reminder to just read Dragonfly and find out! :-) Lovely review!

  9. I have got to catch up on this series so I can go ahead and read this one. It sounds awesome!

  10. It really is a good series with a lot more going on than just Anna, Jack and Julian.
