Goodreads Blurb

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

My Thoughts

Just an Illusion is engaging, entertaining, and brilliantly executed! The writing is fantastic. The plot is fantastic. And above all, the main characters are so well done. Amelia and Noah are so sweet together.

Here’s the breakdown: Amelia agrees to attend a concert and meet and greet with her best friend. She’s a new author, but after much coaxing agrees to shadow the band and write their story. Sawyer and Noah notice her immediately. The attraction is palpable. The only problem? Noah and Sawyer are brothers!

What I Loved: I love all the characters! Sawyer, Noah, and Amelia are fabulous MCs. Mel is strong, independent, self-assured, beautiful, genuine.
Sawyer is generous, sweet, gorgeous, a bit of a romantic, and sexy. Sawyer is an enigma. You never know what you’re gonna from him. Needless to say, I really loved him.

The plot, storyline, and writing were phenomenal. The steamy bits were hot!

The concept / trope is a popular occurrence, although I haven’t read many books with brothers in the triangle. That made for some very interesting situations and amped up the emotional aspect of the story.

My only minor critique is the length, it could have been a smidgen shorter. There’s a lot going on with other subplots. And that cliffy will lead you to drink! Seriously, have libations ready when start this one. It’s a good thing Book 2 is already available because I’m not sure I would have made it 😂 Have book 2 queued up when you start this one.
