fascinating and can t wait to get to know her Normally, it would be great to have two rock stars wanting you but when it s brothers and twin brothers at that, it has to be hard and awkward And it does get awkward folks.The book is well written and the authors talent comes through on every page Not for me.The heroine is a special kind of mary sue who is surrounded by the hottest boy band, does everything perfectly, has no flaws, is talented at everything she tries She has the full attention of the twin brothers in the band one is obviously perfect and the other shows the world a bad boy

the right guy because she is perfect so she needs perfect and simple nothing too messy.The writing was just okay, becoming lost within a predictable plot that didn t bring anything new for me the usual tropes you d expect to see, not being subverted or reinvented The ending didn t make sense I m not sure how it could happen if you had all of those precautions in place.I am just glad this is over It has been hanging over my head for months Moving on Just an Illusion is engaging, entertaining, and brilliantly executed The writing is fantastic The plot is fantastic And above all, the main characters are so well done Amelia and Noah are so sweet together Here s the breakdown Amelia agrees to attend a concert and meet and greet with her best friend She s a new author, but after much coaxing agrees to shadow the band and write their story Sawyer and Noah notice her immediately The attraction is palpable The only problem Noah and Sawye Just an Illusion is engaging, entertaining,

attraction is palpable The only problem Noah and Sawyer are brothers What I Loved I love all the characters Sawyer, Noah, and Amelia are fabulous MCs Mel is strong, independent, self assured, beautiful, genuine Sawyer is generous, sweet, gorgeous, a bit of a romantic, and sexy Sawyer is an enigma You never know what you re gonna from him Needless to say, I really loved him.The plot, storyline, and writing were phenomenal The steamy bits were hot The concept trope is a popular occurrence, although I haven t read many books with brothers in the triangle That made for some very interesting situations and amped up the emotional aspect of the story My only minor critique is the length, it could have been a smidgen shorter There s a lot going on with other subplots And that cliffy will lead you to drink Seriously, have libations ready when start this one It s a good thing Book 2 is already available because I m not sure I would have made it Have book 2 queued up when you

anyone who loves rock romance to miss out on this fantastic book You will definitely end up with a book hangover after reading this sexy and suspenseful rock romance.Amelia Greyson is a bestselling author with some big secrets of her past that she tries to keep buried These secrets are getting harder to contain especially when she is the person chosen to write the tell all book on the biggest rock band around which means she will be going on tour with Bastards and Dangerous BAD for the next year The Weston brothers of Noah and Sawyer head up this band of friends and even though they are twins they could not be anydifferent Noah is the sweet one with a heart of gold that any girl would bethan lucky to be with and then there is Sawyer who isof the bad boy that exudes sex Both brothers want Amelia but how will this work when the three of them are living on a tour bus together for the next year The Weston brothers let a woman come between them before and they can t let it happen again because it almost tore the band and their family apart What will happen when Amelia s true identity is found out especially when they learn that she is the result of rock royalty at its finest Sawyer is carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders from something he witnessed as a kid and this has been playing a big part of what makes Sawyer tick Is Amelia going to be the one person who can break through everything that is making Sawyer self destructive That s going to be a little tough because Noah has made his intentions regarding Amelia pretty clear and he definitely wants to have Amelia as his There is so much going on with these three along with a great storyline for the rest of the guys from the band and Amelia s friend, rock magazine writer, Belle This book has pulled me in so deep that you can t put it down and with that said I am going to have a really hard time waiting for Side B to come out but believe me it will be the first book I grab to read when it s available This is my first time reading D Kelly s work and I amthan impressed with the way she tells a story She gave me just enough in the middle of this book to set me trying to guess what the hell is going on only to get to the end which left me with my mouth hanging open only to then have so many words that came flying out of my mouth it wasn t fit for anyone else to hear Lol I can tell this book will occupy my mind for a while which for me is a tell mark for a great book There are so many things that I HAVE to know and can t wait to see how this will all play out I can only hope that there are going to be manybooks in this series because M Kelly gave us plenty of people that need their stories told too.I received this ARC from NetGalley for an honest review I need to stop reading series when they aren t completed Also, I m Team Sawyer and I m not even sorry This book really interested me because the heroine is pretty awesome with her own issues and the twin brothers thing is fascinating to me They are both gorgeous but total opposites and I personally think Sawyer s the way to go even though the heroine struggles with balance between the twins The book lost an entire star

Nobody chooses the overly freaking nice guy when the freaking Fourth of July fireworks happen with someone else Ugh I do look forward to the next book and will, of course, read it because I want to know I need to know I am slowly rolling around having a fit because I need to know what happens next and love Sawyer I like the complicated, multi layered, in need of fixing heroes, what can I say This is one of those books that sucked me in and made me want to read straight through without stopping I adored the characters and it definitely had a decent dose of the angst I love.The dialogue for the guys was a little young and feminine sounding in the first few chapters IMO but that quickly resolved itself That, along with the need for further editing cut this down to 4 stars some proofing
