Review of Back-Up by AM Madden

AM Madden
Series: Back-Up Series Book 1
Rating: 4.5 Groupie Stars

 Warning: This book is meant for mature readers who are 18+. It contains explicit language, and graphic sexual content.


Leila Marino’s biggest dream is to become a rock star. A lucky opportunity has her auditioning with an up & coming rock band named Devil’s Lair. The band hires Leila as their back-up singer, signing her up for months in the studio and touring on the road with the sexy bunch.

Jack is the quintessential rock star…gorgeous…sexy…a walking orgasm. Jack Lair is the lead singer of Devil’s Lair and his dreams are becoming reality as his band climbs the ladder of success. He’s living the perfect life, and enjoying every minute of it. With a steady stream of sexual conquests that satisfies his raging libido, he thinks he has all he needs in life…until Leila enters it.

Jack is not prepared for the sudden pull he feels towards Leila, and struggles daily to deny his attraction is anything more. Leila finds falling for her new boss is constant torment. Both convince themselves friendship is their only option.

An intimate moment causes their willpower to collapse, and their erotic love affair to begin. Finding love was a bonus that neither Jack nor Leila anticipated. As they begin their tour together professionally and personally, life couldn’t be any better for the couple. Until a mistake from Jack’s past threatens their new relationship, and their perfect future together.

First of all I'm a cover wh**e, I judge books by their covers. If the cover doesn't draw me in then I'm probably not going to read the synopsis ( I know it's not fair but that's just how I am). Back-up has a HOT cover that immediately drew me in. The second book in the series Front & Center has an equally hot cover yay! Second I'm a total Groupie and love rockstar/rock band books. Back-up totally has not only a hot lead singer but both a FEMALE BACK-UP singer (I loved Leila) and great band members that we get some of their stories as well. Not only did this book have main characters that you fall for and are rooting to FINALLY just DO IT, but the secondary characters have great story line too. 

The book is about Jack and Leila. Jack is the lead singer of Devils Lair, an up and coming rock band. Did I mention that he hot, Calvin Klein underwear model HOT, and he's kind of a man whore (aren't all lead singers?). He was cheated on by an ex and has since sworn off relationships, that is until he meets Leila. 

Leila has dreams of having her own band but is currently a back-up singer in a band call The Cliffhangers. While performing with her band, one of the Devils Lair member's girlfriends approaches her and tells Leila she should audition to sing back-up for Devils Lair. She decides to audition and gets the part only problem is she has a major crush on Jack. She can barely function when she's around him. 

Both feel an instant attraction between each other, but there are many obstacles standing in their way of being together. The largest is that if they did get to get her and it didn't last how would it affect the band. Will Jack and Leila take a chance? Will they find their Happily Ever After? This is a must read book that you need to read to find out.

I loved this book. It was hard to put down and I read it in 2 days. It has great flow and hooks you from the beginning and keeps you involved throughout. I will say there is sort of a cliffhanger, not a oh my god how will I survive not knowing what is going to happen cliff hanger. I can't wait for Front & Center and to find out what is going to happen with Jack and Leila!

 A.M. Madden's debut novel Back-up is the first in a series of three. Book two, Front & Center and book three, Encore are both scheduled for release in early 2014.

A.M. Madden is a wife, a mother, an avid reader of romance novels and now an author. In Back-up she aspired to create a fun, sexy, realistic romantic story. She wanted to create characters that the reader could relate to and feel as if they knew personally.

A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic, she loves getting lost in a good book. She uses every free moment of her time writing, while working a full time job as well as raising teenage boys.

Due to mature content, The Back-up series is for 18 or older only.
