Jordan Weston is good-looking, mysterious, and sexually uninhibited, but his life is more like the name of his bar―Just an Illusion. His cousins are the bad boys of Bastards and Dangerous, but their fame hasn’t made everything rainbows and sunshine for him. He’s haunted, flawed, and the sole survivor of a homicide that wiped out his immediate family.
Allie Baker, the most recent hire at the bar, can see through Jordan’s façade. She knows he’s everything she doesn’t need, but she’s beginning to crave his cocky attitude and the way he looks at her. The more she tries to stay away from him, the more she wants to get to know him.
Jordan knows falling for an employee is a bad idea, but Allie pushes buttons he never realized he had. Even though Allie desperately needs her job, she soon decides being with Jordan is more important. Will they be able to compromise, or will she let her chance at love pass her by for the sake of a paycheck?
4 Star Review by Ashley
I wasn't sure how D. Kelly was going to be able to give me Jordan without ripping my heart out and tearing it to bits- again, but she did it. That's not to say that Interlude wasn't heavy at times because it was. And (mini spoiler alert if you haven't read the Illusion Series) having to lose Noah again gutted me, but there was a lightness here that I wasn't expecting.
A lot if it came from Allie's smarts and sass and strength. I loved how open and honest she was about her past and her plans for her future. Especially when it came to Jordan. The attraction was obvious from the first time they laid eyes on each other. Gah- Jordan! How could I not love him. All his broken pieces from his painful past. All this kindness. His generosity. His tender yet guarded heart. He had always struggled to let someone in. But one look, one conversation and he knew Allie was his game changer.
Cue the slow burn. There was a lot of back and forth. With every glance the anticipation built and built and built. And when Jordan and Allie finally gave into what both of their hearts was screaming out for, everything clicked into place.
Allie and Jordan's journey was full of emotion- but not so much that you're drowning in sorrow- and heat and heart. D. Kelly gave me everything I wanted and few things I wasn't expecting with Interlude. And that ending...I'm holding onto hope to see more of this family soon!
