Hi Bel!
Actually this is now a 5 book series. Unplugged is releasing on Febuary 14th and the last book will be coming out over the summer. Book 4 was too big so it had to be split into two books.

*****5 ROCK STARS*****

Just an Illusion Side A and Side B must be read before this book.

As my husband looks at me like I’m bat-shit crazy, I’m going to write this review with tears in my eyes. FYI, I am ruining perfectly good eyelashes from these tears, which is a big thing for me. I love my fucking eyelashes and pay a shit ton of money for them.

I didn’t make it through the first few pages of the chapter one before balling like a damn baby. By the time I got to chapter two, I was a mess.

Tissues are a must…

I was in no way emotionally ready for this book. I`m still not ready and it`s long been read.

“Some days, life is just too hard.”

I was waiting in the car and had a half hour and thought I would quickly start it. Silly, silly me. I opened up the kindle with no thought to what would come. I hadn`t read the blurb, I just knew I had to continue reading this series that I loved…

I sobbed. I didn’t pretty cry or shed the odd tear. I sat in the car and had tears streaming down my f

What an amazing conclusion to the series. That HEA was everything and more. Your words touched my heart. These characters touched my heart. I cried, I grieved, and loved right alongside Amelia, Sawyer & Noah Weston. I can't thank you enough for this epic love story<3

Get those tissues ready and buckle up!


Just an Illusion - EP is the 3rd book in the Illusion series and should only be read after Side A and The B Side. The story picks up right where the 2nd left off and it's extremely emotional. That first 10-15% or so gutted me so much that I had to take some breaks to process what was happening and give my heart and head time to recover. D. Kelly was not joking when she said that she would have to destroy us before putting us back together. I'm not going to

Oh My God. I knew something awfully sad was coming but I could not have anticipated this. I bawled my eyes out, sobbed like a baby, for at least a half hour. Seriously, my heart physically hurt. I couldn't stop crying and I haven't been this emotional since reading Bright Side. D. Kelly did an incredible job with this book. The emotions were real, raw and I'd challenge anyone to read this and not ugly cry. My heart broke. I wish I could say more but I don't want to spoil the story. I didn't thin ...more

Another INCREDIBLE tearjerker from an incredibly talented author. I think I was sobbing every 5 pages at the very least! This was an amazing series and I'm grateful to the author for letting me part of her 'review crew'. Trust me when I tell ya that this series is really kinda special folks!!

This review is based on the ARC provided by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

5+ Weston Brothers Stars!!

This was such an amazing series! Completely blew me away and it was definitely not what I was expecting.

I thought Book 1 Just an Illusion - Side A was good. Not exceptional in any way. But by the end of book 2 Just an Illusion - The B Side, I was completely in love with this series.

I loved both Weston brothers in their own way. Noah was so sweet and romantic. He had such a big heart and he was so considerate with Amelia. Always anticipating her needs. He was the perfect

All I can really say about this book, at least right now, is that I feel like we (readers who make it to the end) deserve a badge that says "I survived EP".

When I read a series of books and they all evolve around the same characters I usually want to wait till the end to give my review on them.
The first book 'Just An Illusion', I liked it, could only give it 3.5 stars. There were parts that were slow for me and some of the character development wasn't working. Noah the main male character, for some reason I just couldn't connect with him like I felt I should have. I started to like him but not in the way that I wanted to.

Wow. 7% into this one and I’m crying, I think I cried on and off for a decent portion of this book and I haven’t cried at a book in years. I’m revealing nothing of the plot because I think this is better read not knowing a thing. I feel like the first two books were purposely over the top soppy happy to set up me for this emotional mess I’m in now. I say set me up, more like dropped me in without warning!

OMG. I have never cried so much over a book in my life. I still can’t function and I’m absolutely devastated. No!!!! Although other readers may be happy with the eventual outcome in the book, I wasn’t. In my opinion, this is NOT a HEA. Even though I’m unbelievably heartbroken, the trilogy was so good and I’m not sorry I invested my time with the Weston’s and their friends/family.

This is a conclusion to the series and you must read books 1 & 2 first.

Review by Jen Skewes

WOW!! I am honestly not sure where to begin or how to even write this review without giving anything away. I have waited patiently for this book to see how this story would end and all I can say is that D. Kelly completely blew me away, with her writing, the story itself and the emotions that she pulled out of me. I am not going to lie this was certainly an emotional journey, one that had me choked up with tears in my eyes on more than one occasion, both tears of joy a

**Received an ARC for an honest review**

I had to take a day to regroup and consider how to give this amazing set of books, and specifically, the 3rd book, and most brutal of the series, a fair and descriptive review without giving away any major spoilers.

To anyone reading this, if you haven't read this series, you really, really should. Whether you are drawn to rock stars or just supremely crafted stories, then this is a book and series for YOU.

Wow this book destroyed me!

You must read the other 2 books before this one!

I wish I could give this book more then 5☆

Holy Hell! I knew going into this book I would need a lot of tissues. But I was not prepared for it at all. I cried so much with this book it isn't funny, to say this book gutted me is an under statement. I think I cried through 99% of this book. I just couldn't stop! I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. I couldn't put it down, I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH.

Wow. What an emotional roller coaster this has been. I need sleep and I need to adult. This series has literally consumed me for the last 3 days. I could not stop reading.
This was written so well and I felt like I was there with the characters. I experienced all the highs and lows right along with them. Perfect ending to a heartbreaking , heartwarming, angst filled story. 😩❤️❤️❤️

Expect tears lots and lot of tears. This is the 3rd book of this series and the most emotional one of all. Just like Dee warned us. She had to destroy us before putting us all back together. But most of all this book is a beautiful story about learning to love. Then after being destroyed beyond repair coming out of the ashes stronger than before. Amelia starts her journey in book one a totally different person than the person she ends up at the end of this one. Even though the journey was rough ...more

That was an epic journey! I LOVED this book and series! I was a mess reading many tissues! Such an emotional conclusion to the trilogy, that I was still feeling it hours later but so worth it for that ending! 😍😍 All of it was fantastic; the characters, the storyline, the strength, the love.

This book review was SO hard to write for a multitude of reasons. If you have read the first two books, you already know that they both ended on HUGE cliffhangers, especially The B Side! These books must be read in order, so if you have not read the previous books, just know that this series is AMAZING and I highly recommend it! I can’t believe that these book don't not have more hype surrounding them because they totally deserve it! I rated EP 5 stars, but if I could, I would rate it a million ...more

I've been swooning over the Weston brothers for awhile now. This is the final book in the Illusion series. Book one, Just an Illusion Side A and book two, Just an Illusion The B Side ended with major cliffhangers and left me wanting to know what would happen next. I couldn't wait to pick up where the last book left off and to find out how their story ended and who ultimately ends up with Amelia.

Amelia is in love with two twin brothers. They love her back just as much as she loves them if not mo

A good author has you feeling bad when a series comes to an end but a great author makes you feel that you are losing a friend or family member because the author has made you feel a part of the characters that they have created and you feel emptiness when it comes to a close.

OMG this book was SO good. I haven't been in the mood to read anything too emotional... Until now. I think I cried through a minimum of 75% of the book. I know I cried consistently through the first 25% of it. I had to stop using tissue and use a handkerchief so I didn't go through my entire box of Kleenex.

Just an Illusion EP by D. Kelly is the third book in The Illusion Series.
This is not a stand-alone. For better understanding you have to read the other books, Just an Illusion Side A, and Just an Illusion Side B- FIRST:
Just an Illusion - EP picks up where the last book ends.
The band is on their goodbye tour and there´s this horrible crash. And now the surivors have to learn... , yes what exactly have they to learn?

Devastatingly beautiful story...

There has only ever been one other book that shattered my heart the way this one did. If I had to compare the two, the other one was child's play in comparison. This book.... it is just amazing.

If you haven't read the first two books in this series... stop what you're doing and go read those first. After the ending of the second book, I knew I was going to need plenty of tissues and wine for this one. I completely underestimated just how many tissues I would need.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to read an ARC of this story.

You do need to read Just an Illusion Side A and Side B before this one. They can not be read as standalones. I can't say much because it will spoil part of the story. 5 stars is no where near enough for this story or the series.

I Cried through the whole story and loved every word you wrote. I look forward to reading Darrens story in the future. This series is my favorite and will stay with me forever D. Kelly thank you for you
