Review: Back-Up by A.M. Madden

TITLE: Back-Up
BY: A.M. Madden
SERIES: Back-Up #1
MY COPY: Ebook from Author for Honest Review

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.

This was a fresh twist!!! I am falling in love with all of these rock star romances, but this by far takes the cake. I loved seeing the female being such a strong and independent lead. Her character and adventure alone could have been a stand alone story, but you wrap it into a romance as intense and motivating as this one and it is a work of art. For those that have not read Leila singer seeking stardom. Having a goal of one day being front and center she is searching for her heaven. In a step toward her goal is auditions for the band Devil's Lair. She is to be a back up singer, but what she finds is much more than a job. Jack is the typical man whore, but what I like about him is that he has values and respect. He is purely all man, and knows what he wants. Therefore, he is a no commitment man. Every girl he is with knows what to expect. I loved this. Lately, I have been seeing all the stories about men breaking a string of hearts along the way. This really tests my respect for their characters. Although, obviously they always redeem themselves from the long list of book boyfriends, but it takes effort. Jack's character this was not necessary. He is a single playboy what is there to judge. I also really loved the lack of baggage to this story. Jack and Leila come from very loving families. Yes, their are some tragedies but the damage that we see so often was totally lacking. These are wholesome and determined characters just trying to make their dreams reality. I LOVE IT!!!!
