At the end of Side A, I was leaning more towards #TeamSawyer but by the end of Side B, I became 100% #TeamNoah. Noah and Mel gave me life! Life! This book has reiterated what I have always known – it takes more than just sexual chemistry to make a relationship classic. At the end of Side A, you could feel the sexual chemistry from Amelia and Sawyer yet craved the connection of

Hang on to your hats ladies and gents! This is one emotional ride!


Just an Illusion - The B Side is the second book in the Illusion trilogy, so please keep this in mind when you sit down to devour this book! You should definitely read Just an Illusion - Side A first (because it's awesome!) and because The B Side picks up where Side A left off.

This book is heavy on the feels and at times you will be riding the highs, but oh, there are some truly heavy lows too. Prepare yourself for the swoons (#

Whew!! I feel like I’ve just been on a ride of my life and I’m still wondering what the he*l just happened. This is a hard review to write without giving anything away from Just An Illusion Side A and believe me you if you haven’t you want to grab this one and read it right away because you don’t want to miss out on one of the best rock romance books out there. Ms. Kelly puts you front and center in the lives of the members of the rock band Bastards and Dangerous (BAD). This book…this series…dra ...more

I adored this book. I absolutely love this series. The author does end these books with painfully dramatic cliffhangers. 'Cause trust me, she will get you THAT involved with her characters. She's just that talented. You love them so much that it's just PAINFUL not to know what happens next to them. So I'm sitting here writing this book review sobbing, with my children looking at me like they are considering which adult home to farm their mommy out to, all while I'm just waiting to find out what ...more

So glad book 3 is out!
Totally in LOVE with Noah, Mel and Sawyer in The Illusion Series! If you haven't read their story yet, you're missing out on one of the most emotional love story with these three beautiful characters.

WOW! I finished this book a week ago and I still am having a hard time putting into words just how much I absolutely adored it. This book is a roller coaster of emotions and I am still reeling from how it ended. D. Kelly crafted a truly amazing story full of deep relationships, well-rounded characters and some of the most extreme twists that I have ever read in a contemporary romance book! This is a book that I HIGHLY recommend!

Holy shit! What a continuation! Mel and Noah are total relationship goals. He still is the sweetest, most swoonworthy book boyfriend. I can't put these down and am wondering why it took me so long to discover this trilogy! I love how these books aren't centered around one couple even though it is told from Mel's POV. You get lots of Belle and Darren as well as the other guys. It's just so well written and sucks you in. This ends on a cliffhanger way worse than Side A. I am still reeling from it. ...more

As you get to the end of this book - which btw ends in another massive cliffhanger!!! things are starting to make sense in this triangle of relationships. Now I get why there is a team Noah, team Sawyer and why the author has written everything to be somewhat guarded (in my opinion) I knew there was a missing piece as to why I couldn't get on board with teams - so yes...this doesn't make much sense but I am betting the 3rd part of this story is going to bring it all to where I need it to go!!!

After the way book 1 ended I couldn't wait for this book to come out and get the continuation of this story between Amelia, Sawyer & Noah.

I very rarely truly love a heroine 100% I did with Amelia!!! She was true to herself, fierce, loyal & kind. She would do anything to spare Sawyer and Noah any pain or heartbreak. And holy shit am I in love with these brothers!! Book 1 I had a crush, book 2 I'm now in love & im nervous that book 3 will turn into a full blown nutcase, lol.

D. Kelly always do this to me. She delivers one sweet love story and at the same time she will rip your heart off. Every single time!

There's so much going on in this part of the story.
You will swoon, you will laugh, you will cry, you will stop breathing on that last page.

Be prepared to be amazed! The Bad group is one big family, and true to a family you will have your ups Seriously, hold on, an amazing story! Amelia's a writer who gets a chance of a lifetime, follow rock group Bad, on their last tour, and write their book. Members of the band, Twins Noah and Sawyer, Darren and Wyatt, all think she would be perfect for writing their story. You will have love, hate, there is drama, sadness, probably shed some tears, some many feelings, this story will truly touch ...more

The book starts right where Side A left off. Something shocking has just happened and Amelia and all the guys have had to face the consequences. We see the aftermath of that event and how they all deal with it. Be prepared to laugh and to cry because many things happen here as well and will leave you breathless when you reach the end, which, thankfully for my poor heart, isn't the very end since we get a #3 book in June.

In this book we see a completely different Mel. It seems like being with Noa

Just an Illusion - Side B is the second book in D. Kelly’s The Illusion Series, and I was so glad we didn't have to wait too long to get the next instalment in Amelia, Noah and Sawyer story.

I was desperate to know how it was all going to play out for Amelia, Noah and Sawyer as at the end of book one I had questions that I wanted answers too. Now I will say while I did get some answers of course now because of the way this bo

This installment starts right after the ending of The A Side. Mel, Noah, and the entire BAD gang are back and have to get through the emotionally devastating and tragic events that happened at the end of the last book. They will all need time to physically and emotionally work through the scars that are left behind.

The members of BAD are family and they have embraced Mel and Belle, and it looks like Eli will be around as well. This is

Sweet little Jesus!!!!!

That series is getting better and better! Ohhhhh, all these feels! I'm so excited for you to find out what's happening in Side B!

I will NOT go into details, will keep this totally spoiler free.

Side B is so, so romantic and full of love. The felling you get when you're experiencing the friendship and bond of family and growing personalities.....

Dee Kelly has a way to create a connection to the characters that's just so real and makes you feel included. It's like you're par

Just an Illusion by D. Kelly is book two in the rock star romance.

The book picks up right where Just an Illusion Side A left off, and deals with the aftermath of the accident.

WOW this book blew me away, the book already starts with a rocky start in the beginning between all the character. While the story progresses, the characters get there ups and down and shocking surprises. This book gave me a lot of emotions, between giddy to full on shock. Amelia has evolved in this book, she is no longer

First thing I will say is this book cannot be read as a standalone! I was so excited when this arrived on my kindle – I absolutely LOVED the first book – it was one of my favourite reads of 2016 so I couldn’t wait to dive straight in. I have to say that there is a distinct possibility that I now need therapy! This book was out of this world! Hands down one of the best books I have read this year! I l

THIS BOOK!! Oh.My.Days!! Dee Kelly you are just a little bit of a genius aren't you? You only went and put together this deliciously evil emotional roller coaster of a book that whipped me up into a frenzy and sent me on one hell of a journey with those Weston boys!!

I remember I was totally #TeamNoah all the way through Side A but I've always had a major soft spot for Sawyer as if I could switch to #TeamSawyer in a heartbeat. It's so wrong of me but I really wanted h

Wow!!!! I don't even know what to say because I absolutely do not want to give away any spoilers. Just like book 1 though I can tell you that this book had my heart in my throat the ENTIRE time as well!

I couldn't put it down and as hard as it is to believe I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these characters even more than in book 1!

My emotions were running high after book 1 and this one was no different. I am still on the edge of my seat because I have to know what is going to happen in book 3.

I had to take a few days to gather myself after I finished reading this book. The way my emotions were all over the place made it impossible to write a review. Once again, D. Kelly gives us a story with characters that grab you into their lives, making you feel like you’re a part of it.

We start off where Side A ended, but this book goes from present to past, as Mel is telling the story. We live with her all the emotions she has for the brothers, Noah and Sawyer. We walk with her in her search of

This story, this series is everything! You MUST read Side A first. Side B picks up right after Side A and it will make no sense unless you read it. Plus you meet the BAD boys and Mel and Belle (which I just realized rhyme) and just immediately get sucked in!

I told myself I was going to bed early last night. Yeah I shouldn't have started reading this book then because I HAD to finish as soon as I started. This was a book that I was reading at work and then I got 73% in and I didn't want to finish

It picks up right where we left off in A-Side and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster as the band and their family come to terms with everything that's happened and hopefully move on to much happier times.

This is a pretty hard review to write as I feel everything I want to say will give you a major spoilers so all I'll say

Without word of a lie, just finishing this book has my heart hammering in my chest.....what a ride the author has put us on with this book.
The second book in this series follows straight after The A Side ends.
Trauma, relief, overwhelming happiness, family, so many things entered my mind as I was reading and I could not put it down. Noah and Amelia's story truly engrossed me. I felt, I sighed, I swooned and I laughed, possibly shed a few tears too.
This book trumps the first, of that I am
