The arrogant but totally loveable Sawyer gets his turn to dish the dirt. His perspective adds to the brilliant Just An Illusion Series. I can't wait for his book 2. You really need to read these books in order to get the full story. It is well worth it. Congratulations D Kelly another superb read.
D. Kelly now this is the Sawyer I loved from the beginning and I can't wait to have his encore. Sawyers's sexy as hell, extremely talented, loves unconditionally, definitely knows how to bring his O game, and a total thief of my heart. But if you haven't read Just An Illusion A-Side, B-Side and EP you've missed a lot of tracks and need to flip back to the beginning and read them first. It's essential you get to know the characters and inbetweens that make up Unplugged.
⛔️⛔️⛔️STOP IF YOU HAVEN'T READ A, B & EP⛔️⛔️⛔️
We've had POV from Amelia (Mel) now it's time for our boy Sawyer to have his say, and man does he have a lot to tell you. From the A-side most people had him pegged as the A-hole twin, in some respects yeah, but was he really? I knew there was more depth to him that he kept buried deep. His sister and best friend's Bethie (Anna), Darren and his Belle (Mel's best friend) are the only people who knew Sawyer's real thoughts, feelings and the sacrifices that he made along the way for Noah....until now.
If you've read the previous books you know what hell they've been through, to eventually drag their lives back together come out stronger at the other end, showing true commitment to each other over the years.
How can you improve on profection? Well, you have Dee Kelly write a book from Sawyer’s point of view and boy does she knock it out of the park! For anyone who has followed Just an Illusion series you are going to see our favorite bad boy, Sawyer and his take on anything BAD, Noah and Mel. It’s a great read that even though, you know how the story of Noah and Mel goes (tear, tear) it’s great to see it from Sawyer’s prospective. There is no question I’ll be waiting on pins and needles for the second half of Sawyer and Mel’s story. This is truly a series I can’t get enough of.
I received this book as an ARC for a freely given and honest review.
Just an Illusion - Unplugged is the #4 book in the Illusion Series.
This book tells the story of Sawyer's POV, all his deep feelings, worries, all his love for Noah & Mel and the brotherhood with his bandmates, I love his BFF Bethie as always, and now I could see more of their relationship.
I could see more of Belle & Mel and gosh I miss her so much, is a kind of friend you want for your whole life.
Having read and loved Just an Illusion Sides A, B & EP, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Unplugged. I knew it was from Sawyer’s perspective but wasn’t sure if it was running to the same timeline as the other books and just putting it in his words. Well I couldn’t have been more wrong! It’s fresh and sexy, with great development of most characters. We get to know and love Sawyer, for more than just his bad boy persona. Plus anyone who doubted why Mel and Sawyer got together, will get their resolution. It was just meant to be. I nearly read it in one sitting and would have if I’d started it on the weekend. If you love the Illusion books, don’t miss out on this one. There will be another book; Encore, to finish Sawyer’s POV up to date but it’s not a cliffhanger ending, so go ahead and read it NOW! I love it!
D. Kelly has an innate ability to wrap you up in a cocoon of emotion like no other. Going into this book, I honestly didn't believe that my heart could break any more or that my opinions would change about the decisions made by Noah and Sawyer. Furthermore, I wasn't sure how much more the author could add to their story just by providing a different point of view. Oh, how I was wrong! Every moment and interaction was new. This book's main focus was on the twins. The author dove deep into Noah and Sawyer's love for one another as well as the animosity that sometimes bubbled just below the surface. We were able to experience how the decisions each made altered the dynamics of their relationship and Sawyer's sense of self. It became clear that every part of Sawyer's life was tied to Noah's - his future as a musician as well as the way he felt about his worth. The author also provided some insight into Sawyer's relationships with family and friends, which added to the depth of his character. I loved getting to know the loving, selfless, and tortured soul that existed within the self-deprecating, bad boy rock star he portrayed to the outside world. I can't wait to see where the author takes us next!
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book.
