New Release + 5 Star ARC Review ☆ Just an Illusion EP (The Illusion Series Book 3) by Dee Kelly

Just an Illusion EP Dee Kelly

ARC provided by author for honest review.

REVIEWED BY JACQUI

First thing. You need to read all the books to learn all the characters and backstory.

Now, how do I write this without giving too much away? I have no idea. Good thing there is a FB group to discuss with people. This book, the third in the Just an Illusion series, requires a box of Kleenex. Your emotions will be all over the place throughout the whole book. Don’t let this discourage you. This book is phenomenal and worth every shredded Kleenex I used (I sent a picture of my pile to the author). I would love to give this book 10 stars but there is no option for that. So I will do my best to give you the “no spoiler” review.

It’s been two years since Amelia Weston toured with the band Bastards and Dangerous with the help of her friend Belle. Her job was to write about the tour and give fans backstage access to the lives of the guys of BAD. What she got instead was an epic love story. A love of true friendship and one of the heart. When tragedy hits all members of the band, Amelia must now decide how to write her book. This book goes back through her tour time and gives insights to interviews she did and the beginning of her true love story. We get a chance to read her story along with her extended family. Her memories are both happy and sad but in the end, meant to be written. She pushes through the darkness to take that second chance at love.

I was glued to this book. I had to read while my husband was at work. The crying jags made me a mess. But at the same time, the story makes you look at your own life and the choices we make in our relationships. Of finding that true love that deserves an epic love story and to not take advantage of missing out on important events in our life. Whether Dee Kelly meant to or not, and I have to believe she did, is to live each day to the fullest. Find that person that makes your dreams come true and enjoy every day you have with them. Have your own grand love story that lasts a minimum of fifty years. I bow down to you Dee Kelly. You have a gift for storytelling. Thank you for rocking my world.

New Release + 5 Star ARC Reviews ☆ Just an Illusion-The B Side (The Illusion Series Book #2) by D. Kelly

 

Just an Illusion Side B  Dee Kelly

ARC received for an honest review

Reviewed by Jacqui 

I finished this book almost two weeks ago and it’s taken me this long to write the review. Let me just say I needed a lot of down time after the emotional ride Dee Kelly took me on. Just An Illusion Side B picks up where Side A left off, so they do have to be read in order.

 

This book had me all over the place. And I mean that in a good way. The way Dee Kelly has written her character’s and their story is truly amazing. She has a way to draw you into the lives of Mel, Noah, and Sawyer and the rest of BAD that when she throws a curveball at you, it hits you straight on and you never see it coming.
Just An Illusion Side B is at the top of my favorite list for 2017. The character’s, the story line, and the emotion that is conveyed in this book will make you fall in love with the brothers (as Mel has) and take you on a journey of love, friendship, and honesty. But wait for it. The end will blow you away and still not answer all the burning questions. For that we will wait patiently (or not) for the next installment of Just An Illusion. Dee Kelly, you have blown me away again with this book. Be prepared for me to hound you and keep you working to finish the next book. Readers need to know. Thank you Dee, as always, you have done it again.

Dee Kelly has a new smash hit! Okay, she has a new amazing rocker romance book out. If you love rocker romance, Just an Illusion will definitely be the perfect book. Although I will read whatever she writes, I’m not afraid to say this might be my new favorite book of hers. I’m still #TeamMichael from the Acceptance Series, but Sawyer and Noah Weston are creeping in there.

Noah and Sawyer Weston are the lead for the band BAD. Both are as sexy as you can write them characters that anyone would fangirl over. But only one girl has caught their attention and she is not a fan of their music.

Amelia Greyson is a best selling author with her book The O Factor. She attends BAD’s concert with a friend and is suddenly pulled into the rocker world as a biographer for the boys of BAD. This means living on a bus with the two sexy brothers for a year and trying to maintain a professional friendship. But her heart has other thoughts. She tries to avoid the bad brother Sawyer and give her heart to Noah, the nice brother. But as she learns more about Sawyer through her interviews, she sees a different side to him. But she can’t hurt Noah because she does love him. But Sawyer is not making it easy on her.

I love a good rocker series as much as anyone. But this story was so well written it goes to the top of my favorite rocker series. Dee Kelly knows how to write a story that leaves you wanting more and feeling everything the characters do. She is also known for writing stories that will make you choose a team. Mine is #TeamSawyer. Can’t tell you why since you need to read the book. But I’m sticking with the bad boy. Thank you once again Dee Kelly for rocking my world. You have a way with words.

I’m pretty sure this book is going to make a therapist very rich! Between the smart and sassy chicks and the smoking hot rock stars of the BAD crew, I’m in complete book hangover mode. I’m not sure I can function normally until I know how the story ends. Noah and Mel are destine for great things and deserve nothing more.   But drama seems to rule the roost. Sawyer, Wyatt, Darren, Bell and Anna all have their work cut out for them and want nothing more than to have a normal life outside the rockstar world. Can these two worlds co-exist? Can love concur all? There are so many turns in this book I never knew what was going to happen next, and true to her world the queen of cliffhangers did it again and boy did she do it.

New Release + 5 Star ARC Reviews ☆☆☆☆☆ Sharing Rylee by D. Kelly

five gold starsReviewed by Jacqui

ARC received for an honest review
This latest book from D. Kelly is an absolute must read. The story is about an unconventional love between Rylee, Pete, and Nick. The characters are from Chasing Cassidy and reading it will help with the following of the story.
Rylee Stafford has always known she wanted a happily ever after, but not in the traditional way. Eight years of therapy have helped Rylee to understand what she wants and that it is all okay. The hard part for her is to see if others will understand her way.
Enter Nick and Pete. Nick has been in love with Rylee for as long as he can remember. Best friends with her brother Zack, he is willing to wait for Rylee to decide if he is what she wants. Pete is another friend that Rylee hooked up with at Zack and Cassidy’s wedding. He also is in love with Rylee and wants to continue their relationship. Rylee is in love with both men and wants them both. But Nick and Pete have a plan also.
This is an amazing story of the power of love. When you love as deeply as D. Kelly has written in Sharing Rylee, there are no obstacles in your way. This book is so well written that the complicated love story between these three seems normal. I cheered for Rylee in her coming to the realization she no longer has to hide. She could face her fears and get through this as a stronger person.
Well done D. Kelly!! I am in love with this story and everything about it. One of the best books I have read this year. Thanks for the chance to read it early.

Once again D. Kelly has sent me on an emotional roller coaster. This book is a must read.  The characters will suck you into their world so you can see their story with them. I love how bits and pieces of them are released a little bit at a time. This book is beautifully written, the saucy parts are hot and steamy. The main story line of the book keeps you intrigued so much so you may not want to put the book down ever.

Rylee, is a strong willed girl just trying to find herself self and her place in the world. She knows what she wants and what she needs to get it, but can’t seem to bring her-self to open the door to make her dreams come true. Nick knows what Rylee needs and is willing to give her anything she wants; after all he gave her his heart in high school, he just can’t figure out why he’s not enough. When Pete re-appears into Nick’s life and whisks Rylee away for a few nights of fun under the sheets, Nick can hardly stand it.  Nick wants more, Pete wants more and Rylee has friend zoned them both. How can you fall in love with 2 people and not break anyone’s heart.

Synopsis

Do happily ever after’s always have to be so traditional?
Rylee Stafford has asked herself this question since she was eighteen years old. Now, at twenty-eight she still doesn’t have an answer. One thing she knows for sure is even if she can have the unconventional relationship she’s always dreamed of, it would never fly with her family. Her sexual proclivities would never be accepted by them or their social circle.
The truth is Rylee is tired of hiding her feelings. Tired of wanting what she can’t have and so tired of feeling abnormal because she wants a different kind of love.
She’s kept her secret well hidden, especially from Nick, her on again off again love affair. Her secret isn’t their only stumbling block, though—Rylee’s also met someone new. His name is Pete and he sets her heart and soul on fire; he’s sexy, smart, possessive, and he wants her. No matter how much she cares for them she can’t bring herself to tell them the truth. The only way to Rylee’s heart is to have a relationship with both men.It’s only when Rylee takes her annual vacation does she finally realize her happiness is worth more than what anyone thinks of her. Now the only question is: will Rylee’s alternate lifestyle alienate everyone she loves? Or will she be accepted for the person she’s always been deep down inside?

Blog Page Break 2Excerpt 

“Nick, I think you should go.”

I feel like she punched me in the gut, but I’m going to take Zack’s lead on this one. He never let Cassidy pull too far away, and I’m not going to let Rylee shut me out now.

Silently, I get dressed. She’s still standing by the bathroom with her arms across her chest. She doesn’t want to get close to me because she doesn’t want to admit her feelings for me.

“Rylee,” I say, walking toward her at a slow pace. She eyes me up and down and presses herself as close to the wall as possible. She’s not getting away from me.

I pull her into my arms and crush my lips to hers. My hand weaves into her sexy, just-fucked hair, and I pull her tightly to my lips. I kiss her with all the passion I’ve had building inside of me for years and she feels it. I know she does because she hasn’t stopped whimpering the entire time her tongue has been dueling with mine. When I finally slow the kiss, she whimpers even more, and when I slowly pull away, her fingers go immediately to her lips as if she’s trying to savor the magic we just shared.

“I’ll go for now, Ry, but not for long. I’m going to check in on you every day, but I’ll give you space and stay away. Don’t take too long because I want you now more than ever, Rylee. I always have and I always will.”

 
I place a soft kiss to her forehead and leave.

Reviewed by Jacqueline

Chasing Cassidy  D. Kelly

ARC received for an honest review

Kelly, best known for The Acceptance Series (#TeamMichael) has once again written a story that will make you fall in love. Chasing Cassidy is a story of first love, true love, fighting for love, and happily ever after love. But all that love comes with some dark secrets and for Cassidy Pope hurting the people you love is the only way to make it all happen. Fortunately for Cassidy, Zack Stafford isn’t going to let Cassidy run away from all of this. It may take some creative ways to remind Cassidy why they fell in love and what being lovable truly feels like, but she means that much to him. She hasn’t known that growing up and had some reminders that maybe she wasn’t good enough to be anybodies love.

This is a story that will touch your heart and soul. It will make you want to slap people, cheer for others, and then cry and be happy at the end! I loved this book and it is just another example of the brilliance of D. Kelly and her ability to bring a story to life and make you apart of it. If the hint at the end is anything, I think we are in for another wild book from this amazing author that is sure to take us places and make us go hmmm…. Thank you D. Kelly for letting us fall in love with Zack and Cassidy as much as you did.

Excerpt

Placing my hand behind her head, I gently roll her over and position myself on top of her. I’m going to make this girl feel the depths of my love if it’s the last thing I do in my life. “I love you,” I whisper a breath away from her lips then cover her mouth with mine. I take my time kissing her then pull away slightly.

“I’m going to love you and only you until the day I take my last breath,” I tell her softly before meeting her lips again, claiming them with mine. This time, I kiss her longer but still don’t breach her mouth with my tongue.

Again, I pull away just a bit but whisper into her mouth in hopes that my words will not only weave themselves into her mind but also into her heart. “Love is love. It comes without strings, without obligation, without judgment, without fear. It is unconditional and all-consuming. I couldn’t separate my love from you if I tried, so please stop trying to push me away because I’m not going anywhere, baby.”

Chasing Cassidy is a story of first love, true love, fighting for love, and happily ever after love. But all that love comes with some dark secrets and for Cassidy Pope hurting the people you love is the only way to make it all happen. Fortunately for Cassidy, Zack Stafford isn’t going to let Cassidy run away from all of this. It may take some creative ways to remind Cassidy why they fell in love and what being lovable truly feels like, but she means that much to him. She hasn’t known that growing up and had some reminders that maybe she wasn’t good enough to be anybodies love.


This is a story that will touch your heart and soul. It will make you want to slap people, cheer for others, and then cry and be happy at the end! I loved this book and it is just another example of the brilliance of D. Kelly and her ability to bring a story to life and make you apart of it. If the hint at the end is anything, I think we are in for another wild book from this amazing author that is sure to take us places and make us go hmmm…. Thank you D. Kelly for letting us fall in love with Zack and Cassidy as much as you did.

Blog Page Break 2Excerpt 

Releasing my hands, he pulls my dress over my head and runs his hands across my black bra and gives my breasts a quick squeeze. When he reaches my panties, he slides his hand inside and cups my pussy, sliding one, then a second finger inside of me. My eyes close momentarily while I absorb the exquisite feeling of him inside me. It’s been too long.

“That’s my vixen. Wet as fuck and just aching for me to make you scream. My fingers are the only ones that ever belong in your pussy, Cassidy.” Chuckling, he corrects himself, “Well, mine and yours. You know how much I love watching you finger yourself until you come.”

“Zack.” His name falls easily from my mouth as he continues to finger me. There’s no way anyone could ever make me feel as amazing as he does. He’s right—he’s the only one for me, the only one I could ever love. I know that more and more with every passing second we spend here, but I still have a secret to tell him.

One that will change everything.

As he slowly pulls his fingers out of me, he brings them to his mouth one by one, tasting each one slowly, savoring the taste of me on his tongue. It’s as if he’s enjoying his favorite dessert, the eroticism of the moment is heady.

“Fuck, I’ve missed tasting you on my lips, and I’ve really missed running my tongue along your sweet, tight pussy as you come all over my face.”

Suddenly, he flips me around, holding both wrists in a single hand above my head with my face against the wall. His teeth bite down onto my shoulder but he soothes the pain with a swipe of his tongue and with the touch of his kiss against it.

“Perhaps I should punish you for running. What do you think? What should the punishment be for delayed sexual gratification?” Zack’s punishments are filled with pleasure and just the thought of it makes me want him even more. With my history, there’s no spanking, but the exquisite pleasure he brings me while he has me tied up is incredible.

Excerpt:

Rylee bounces out the door and bounds down the stairs before our feet even hit the first step. I’m sure she’s trying to sneak in a kiss before we get there.
“She was talking about what I think she was right?”
“What sex?” I answer teasing him
He shudders with just the thought “Yeah”
“Of course she was” I answer with a laugh
“So sick, I figured as much” he mutters
“Don’t worry Zack, I’ll never tell your sister how well you wield your mighty sword.” He stops in his tracks halfway down the stairs cracking up.
“Oh my God Cassidy that’s fucking classic! I almost wish you could, just so I could see her expression.” Then he whispers seductively in my ear “But if that’s how you’re going to describe my fucking magnificent cock, I really hope it’s in jest.” He nips the tip of my earlobe and sucks on my neck pulling me closer to him. His magnificent cock is pushing against my hip making sure I’m aware his description is indeed accurate.
“Yes it’s just a joke. But you’d understand why if you could have heard her description of…”
“Lalalalala” he cuts me off with his fingers in his ears and bounds down the stairs.
“Oh gross! Seriously? Come on! Pete we’re about to eat. Damn Ry, you’re making me lose my appetite.”
Oops guess he walked in on them anyway.
“Paybacks a bitch big brother get used to it.” Rylee tosses back at him as I walk right past the kitchen and out to the patio. I’m starving and this will either end quickly or go on all night.
Pete exits the house right behind me and takes a seat, followed by Ry and Zack.
“There’s not enough bleach in the world for my eyes after that.” Zack complains as I begin dishing out food.
“Stop whining Zack it was just tongue I’ve seen you with your ass in the air mid thrust so don’t talk to me about bleach.” Rylee pretends to stick her finger down her throat and gag. Zack does have the decency to look embarrassed, but it only lasts a second.
“If you would have knocked first that wouldn’t have happened.” He taunts and she rolls her eyes at him. I love how Pete just stays quiet and sips on his beer.
“New house rules starting now, no one gets to fuck in our house but us.”
“Seriously Zack? We weren’t fucking, not even close to it.” Ry snaps back at him
“I know” he says with a smile “I’m just making a pre-emptive strike in case you get too drunk to drive tonight.”
“If I get too drunk to drive tonight I’ll call a cab because I’m definitely getting fucked.”
Both Pete and I respectively choke, him on his beer and me on my salad. Zack gives Pete a long glare and Pete just shrugs. Damn I think I love him already.
“You just said I couldn’t break her heart you didn’t say I couldn’t make her scream.” Pete points out hysterically. Hell, I’m laughing so hard I’m crying at this point.
