4 Star Review by Ashley
I wasn't sure my heart was ready for the conclusion to the Illusion Series. Part of me wanted to know how it all ended. Another part of me wants the series to go on forever. And the other part of me didn't want D. Kelly to keep ripping my hearts to bits. Rest assured that while Encore got emotional at times, it wasn't the sob fest I was expecting. In fact, I laughed a lot.
Seeing everything from Sawyer's side didn't change how I felt about Noah or Mel. But it changed how I felt about him. I get him on a different level now. How he hid his pain. How his love grew and how he tried to hide it to honor both Noah and Mel. How he kept Noah's memory alive not just for himself but for Noah too. I had no idea that the broody jerk I met back with Side A had such a tender heart underneath all his brashness.
The one word that best describes this book is family. The band. The Westons. Eli. The kids! And just like family, Encore had it's ups and downs. I relived some of the lows and got lost in the sorrow of it all. But I also rejoiced in the highs. The happy times. The surprises (hello Mel's wedding gift to Sawyer). The milestones. The moments that may've been small but had such a big impact on the shape of Sawyer and Mel's life.
What a journey. D. Kelly beat my heart to shreds more than once, and just like the whole B&D family, it wasn't ever the same. But that didn't mean there wasn't room for more love to grow. And getting these words from Sawyer to Noah proved that perfectly. Gah! I can't believe that this series is over.
