Book Review, Release Day Blitz, & Giveaway: Just An Illusion - the B Side by D. Kelly

Just an Illusion - the B Side (Illusion Series #2) by D. Kelly
Blurb:
Three life-altering months …

That’s how long it’s been since Amelia Greyson joined the Just an Illusion Tour with Bastards and Dangerous. She’s made new friends, embraced her past, and even found love.
  
Back on the road …

Following a tragic situation, Amelia is determined to hit the road, put her life in order, and finish the book she was hired to write. Mel’s not the only one affected by what happened; the men of BAD are all trying to move forward, not wanting the past to ruin the remainder of their farewell tour.

Brother vs Brother …

Tensions are high on the Weston brothers’ bus. As each brother settles into their role in Amelia’s life, secrets threaten to rip their relationship to shreds. Can Noah and Sawyer find a way to save the brotherly bond they share? Or will the woman of their dreams end up tearing them apart for good?  

My Review:
Just An Illusion - the B Side picks up from Side A's cliffhanging end. Who got shot at the end of Side A? Are Amelia "Mel" Greyson and Noah Weston alive? Or has Mel lost another person she loves?

        As Mel and Noah recover from the shooting their relationship will be tested by Noah's increasing desire for marriage and children, the constant watchful eye of the paparazzi, crazy fans, and Noah's twin Sawyer's feelings for Mel.

       Is their relationship built to last? Or will some outside force tear them apart? Will Sawyer be able to get over Mel? Or will his feelings for his brother's girlfriend ruin his relationship with his brother forever?

      I both liked and disliked Just An Illusion - The B Side. I'm still not Team Noah - he's just too perfect in my opinion - and I don't mean that in a good way. I loved the storylines of the more minor characters more than reading about Mel and Noah's relationship because it felt, mostly toward the end, a little too sickening. Maybe it's just that I see so much more potential for Mel with Sawyer that I just can't get behind the Noah thing.

     I will say that Just an Illusion - the B Side was easy to get caught up in. The pages fly by as the reader tries to figure out what will happen next. On the flip side, I could have done with more happening in this book - it just seemed like everything moved too smoothly without much conflict. Almost like the author was waiting for the shocking cliffhanger at the end to speed things up.

     After that ending, I'm dying to see how the trilogy will wrap up. Overall, this was a quick, mostly enjoyable read and I'm glad I read it.

           My Rating: 
        4 of 5 Stars!

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?
