Sawyer Weston has done the unthinkable--he's fallen for his brother's girl. He'd never purposefully hurt Noah, but that's exactly what's going to happen if he can't get Amelia out of his system.
A stolen kiss between them finally brings Sawyer to his senses. No matter how much he wants her, Amelia has made her choice.
When tragedy strikes, Sawyer finds himself taking on more responsibility than he ever imagined. Can Sawyer remain the rock his family needs in their time of crisis? Or will he succumb to his deepest desires and fall in love with Amelia all over again?

Just an Illusion – Encore is the conclusion to Sawyer Weston's story. Every thought, every feeling, are yours for the taking. Are you ready?

Where to start ... what to say that hasn’t already been said.... Well I guess I need to say you need to read the previous books to really get the best out of Just an Illusion-Encore. This is book 5 and just when you think it can’t get any better this author ups her game once again and gives us a book that I certainly didn’t want to end, I was captivated as this book took over , I couldn’t put it down. This series is one that I will read over and over again and finally getting Sawyer’s point of view was everything I could have wished for and more, yes I cried and I mean really ugly sobs but I also shed a few tears of happiness as well as a few smiles along the way because this book is full of emotions it’s full of heart and it will touch your soul and leave you with a memory of a love story like no other. This series is centred around the bonds and loyalty this group of family and friends share but in this book some hard truths need to be faced are their bonds strong enough to get them across the line ........ An epic journey of love and friendship whilst facing some heartbreaking tragic events make this a brilliant read and I’m not going to go into those perfect epilogues I’m just going to leave you with if you have read the previous books then this is a must read and if you haven’t started this series why not!! I highly recommend this amazing series that fans of rockstars and fans of romance will love.

4-4.5 stars This was everything I wanted Sawyer’s first book to be. ENCORE left me exposed and gutted Yet it was beautiful to watch Sawyer and Mel’s love grow out of such tragedy.

Just an Illusion - Encore is the fifth book in the Illusion series. You must read the others first. Encore was the continuation of the story from Sawyers point of view. It was really well written and kept my interest the whole thing through. This series has been one of my all time favorites. You’d think with five books things would get monotonous, but it never does. It was nice to see what Sawyer was thinking when certain things were going on. It makes him so much more likeable and relatable. I loved the way he loved everyone, but especially Nate. His love for his brothers son was heartbreakingly beautiful. I was happy to see Mel, Sawyer, Nate, and their family get a happily ever after. I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole series and can’t what to read the side characters stories in the future.

Dee is very good at telling the story from the male POV and making it seem like a whole new story. This one didn’t quite feel like a new story, but it didn’t feel like a rehash either. While there were tears (both happy and sad), this book wasn’t quite as emotional as all the others. This was an excellent ending to the journey. I loved the bonus epilogue.

this book is AMAZING!! This is the last book in the illusion series and my favourite. i do not have words to express how great the book is. it’s ineffable. dee kelly has got magic in her words. i was absorbed in the book from the very first chapter and couldn’t let go. it breaks my heart that this is the last book, but i the fact that we’ll be getting jordan, darren and eli’s books soothes my heart. Sawyer Weston is the best book boyfriend i could ask for. i can’t get over him. he is perfect. and the credit goes to the author. i love sawyer. this book is from his POV and i loved every word of it. it’s raw, pure and beautiful. i felt every emotion as if it were me. it’s so beautiful. Sawyer and Mel’s love story is exactly how i want mine to be. and sawyer’s love for Nate is....... absolutely heart melting. he loves him as his, not Noah’s son. this book is the perfect way to end the series. i loved it. its a must read.

Holy book hangover!! Even though I've read the prior books and I know the story, there's still so much in Sawyer's view that we don't get in the other books. This was the PERFECT ending for Sawyer, Mel and Noah. And all the BaD family. This Encore had me torn between wanting to read it all in one sitting and having to take emotional breaks - plus family holiday breaks. So it took me longer than usual to read it but I think I did it in the best way I possibly could. I fell in love with this story/group/storyline/series from book 1. I'm not normally a rock star romance reader - at least not much - but this had me from the beginning. This story was told from such a real perspective that it didn't seem so out of touch like rockstar romances can be. They weren't crazy (too crazily) extravagant and they still had the home life of non-famous people. Their emotions, situations, reactions and everything were REAL. That's probably the best way I can describe this whole series; the REALEST rockstar romance you'll ever read!

An Outstanding Heartfelt Rock Romance For those of us who have been following the Just An Illusion series you think the next book cannot out do the last book. How sorely mistaken we have been!! Ms. Kelly has thought of another way to have our hearts soaring and then has your heart breaking in no time. This whole series has been exceptional and Encore only adds to this. This is Sawyer’s story and even though I love Noah I’ve always had that special place in my heart for the bad boy rock star. Even bad boy rock stars deserve a happily ever after, even if it comes with utter heartbreak. Ms. Kelly cannot stop with Encore because if you have read her work I am sure you will feel the same way many of us do…we need more. (even though she pulls you through the emotionally wringer that has made this series so near and dear to my heart) She writes these characters with so much depth that you actually do feel everything they are going through which at times means you better keep them tissues handy. But it’s more than that because for me I feel such a connection and understanding to these people that I want to be a part of their story for years to come. Pick up the first books in this series and inhale them just as I did. You won’t be disappointed!

5 stars plus I need to start by saying you had to have read the previous books in this series before reading this one, as it's a series that must be read in order. This book though....I had so many tears....so much heart and soul in Sawyer's story I had trouble reading through my tears. What he goes through along with his family and friends is nothing short of devastating and to end up the way he has will not only surprise you but make you see his huge heart. It goes without saying that Sawyer, Mel and all those that surround them closely, have some rather heartwrenching times, however there are some beautiful moments as well. The words coming off the pages made for a beautifully Epic book, one I read in one sitting and powered through as I just couldn't stop reading. I'm not sure what more to say to let you know how amazing, how wonderful the whole support group of friends and family are within this story and there are some profoundly beautiful words too. This book had my heart in my throat....it made me feel so very much for the characters as though they were real. I'm not lying. I feel like I got to know them all on an intimate level by seeing how they cope, live and go beyond the tragic events. Encore is an epic story of love, bonds of friendship and family and honesty as well as hard truths. The Just an Illusion series is the most heartwarming but heartwrenching series you will ever read.

"We always had a spark, but our story is one best lived slowly." - Sawyer Weston How do I even begin to put into words how much this book means to me? I have read this series from beginning to end and this is definitely one of those reads that will stay with you long after you've inhaled the final words, one of those that you'll have to re-read, one you'll highly recommend. Encore was an emotional journey filled with loss, heartbreak, friend/family bonds, second chances and LOVE. This book is and was EVERYTHING with ALL the feels and so much more. The Just an Illusion series is a PHENOMENAL, must read that will always have a special place in my heart! Thank you Dee Kelly for your amazing words and blessing us with this amazingly beautiful journey! I'll leave you with these words "We'll write our ending as we go. Each day will be a new page of our story. If we stumble or mess up, we'll start a new page the next day and all will be right with our world."

LOVE, LOSS & HEARTFELT MOMENTS!!! Just an Illusion Encore was such a fantastic read. It really is a must read story after you've read the previous books in this series. Trust me, you will want to read this series from the very beginning. We get to experience everything from Sawyer's point of view. The wanting, loving, heartache, resentment, heartbreaking, devastating, heartfelt, happy moments and so much more. Sawyer's journey to redemption, love and his happy ever after is one that can only be told by him. There were no tears on my part and I'm surprised I kept it together. Being in love with someone you can't have is hard enough, but the feeling of losing everything while being strong emotionally and physically for others has both it's down and up moments. However, in the end the journey was worth every minute of it. I not only loved this book but I absolutely loved this whole series and I highly recommend it. This truly was one of the best Rockstar romance reads I have ever read and it will remain on my top ten list. You will love these characters and they will take you on a journey you will never forget. I'm more than excited that Jordan, Darren and Eli will get their own story. To be honest, I would also love for Nate to have his own story and if it's with Cadence that would make my day, but when it comes to these characters I will happily take whatever I can get.
