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.

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?

REVIEW

Side A

This is the first book I have read by D. Kelly and I absolutely loved it. While this book is written in the present tense, it is actually all a memory. Amelia is writing a book to work through everything that had happened a few years prior to help her make a decision about her future. Beginning when her best friend Belle drags her to aBastards and Dangerous concert for work. It results in Amelia getting an offer to join the band on the road to write an intimate tell all authorized by the band. This book covers the first 3 months of life on the road. This book is full of so many emotions including but not limited to love and heartache. It is so well written and has some great plot twists you won’t be able to put it down.

Side B

This book is the second in the trilogy and is equally as good if not better than the first book. Its been 3 months since Amelia met the boys of B.A.D. and joined them on the road. Now that she has spent time on the road with the guys they have gotten into a rhythm, but Noah’s past has come back to shake things up. There is a moment where all you can think is “Did that just really happen?” and the answer is “Yes, yes it did.”. This book continues to pull you under so you have to keep reading to find out what is going to happen next.

EP

The end of the trilogy, the most emotional book to read. This book has true tragedy and heartbreak, turning everyones lives upside down. Amelia struggles re-living this part of her past while writing it all out more than any other. Female friends and family (the guys are on a camping trip) start to gather around her while she tries to finish writing the book and come to her final decision on how to move forward. Forewarning, there will be tears. You will need tissues. You’re heart will break. You will get a happy ending. You will look back at be so glad you read the trilogy.
