Just an Illusion - Side A (The Illusion #1) by D. Kelly

My Rating: 5 Stars
Series: The Illusion #1
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Subject: Love is  the most beautiful  and difficult thing in the world

One night changed her life…
Bestselling author Amelia Greyson has grown up in the music industry and isn’t the slightest bit fazed by fame or celebrities. However, when she attends a Bastards and Dangerous concert with her best friend Belle, her world shifts on its axis.
Double trouble…
Sawyer and Noah Weston are the front men of BAD. They’re fraternal twins and sexy as sin. When they hear the author of The O Factor is in their green room, they’re intrigued. She’s just the person they need to write their farewell story. The brothers offer Amelia the opportunity of a lifetime, which she reluctantly accepts.
Three hearts…
Noah is sweet and considerate, working hard to make Amelia feel at home on the road. Unfortunately, the closer they get, the more obnoxious Sawyer becomes. Sawyer is arrogant and distant and he wants Amelia, even though she’s not his for the taking. Only during stolen moments does Sawyer show her who he really is.
Can Amelia maintain a safe distance from Sawyer and keep her heart intact? Or will she shatter Noah’s heart by giving hers to his brother instead?

Just an Illusion – Side A is the first book in The Illusion Series

Let me start by saying I haven’t stop thinking about this book for more than 48 hours, it took me a day to read it and the rest of the time, I spent it trying to get over that crazy cliffhanger.

Since I started reading the book, I knew there would be something tragic happening to the characters and it kept me on edge till that last page where the words to be continued haunted me. So all I have to say to the author is, well done! I was hooked and couldn’t put the book down for a second.

I love my rock bands like any other woman in the world, but I really felt connected to BAD, they were not what you would expect rock band members to be, they were actually pretty cool and collected guys. Well, all except from Sawyer, who was obviously my favorite character, who doesn’t love a bad boy with a tortured soul? I am a sucker for that, so of course I wanted him to be the chosen one.

Noah was something different altogether, even though they were twins; they couldn’t have been any more opposite. His personality and actions kept changing the way I pictured him in my mind, he was such a good boy, that I found myself being surprised when Amelia described his body during sex scenes and I realized he was also a bad-ass rock star full of tattoos and sexy muscles.  He just seemed so sweet and loving that when compared to Sawyer in my mind, he ended up looking like a sweet boy next door kind of guy.

Apart from the sex, and the rock music, the story was really beautiful and at the same time it was extremely sad.  All of the characters had dark parts in their pasts that had changed them so deeply and ultimately shaped who they are today.  

Two twins so different, but at the same time two halves of the same whole. Together they made the perfect man, happy and sweet versus tortured and dangerous, and both of them hotter than sin, I don’t think It would have been an easy choice.

Last but not least there was Amelia, she was such a contradiction, she seemed so cautious and sweet, but lurking beneath the surface there was a wild side of her she had kept hidden from the world, some deep and dark  secrets of her own.

Overall it was an amazing book! I can’t wait for the next one; I literally need it now to survive!
