Review: Back-Up by A.M. Madden


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 a 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.

Rachel's 5 Star Review

Who doesn't love a good Rocker Romance? Well, if you haven't taken one for a spin yet, let this be your first. A.M. Madden most definitely hits all the right notes! Back-up is an super great 5 star read! All of her characters, main and secondary, are so well written that you can easily see them as your friends. The story flows so smoothly you don't realize how long you've been sitting there ignoring everything around you as you flip page after page after page.. time just flies! I love her writing's a little snippet:

   "As I drive by humiliated ass back to Hoboken, I try to analyze what the hell happened in that studio. I'm almost afraid to hope for this job. Let's fast forward and assume I get hired...the what? Can I survive being in his presence daily, when I couldn't even make it through a twenty-minute audition? What am I saying? Of course I want this job. Plus, I don't even know this man. He probably is a complete jackass. As I try to convince myself that Jack is indeed a jackass, a tiny voice in the back of my demented brain says, "You'd better hope so."
I love the way the chapters switch from Leilas POV to Jacks POV... I usually don't like all the switching, but AM Madden does it're not ever confused on who is doing the "thinking"! And did I mention this HOT SEXY ROCKER? well how can you have a hot, sexy rocker with no sex? duh, you can' here's a little "taste"

     ~Laying my hand on his chest, I can feel his heart pounding. Succumbing to the incessant urge to touch him, I run my hands over his chess, abdomen, and hips. Tracing his erection with my fingertips, he closes his eyes and moans, completely lost in my touch. I take his hand and lead him toward my bed... "I've dreamt of you...of kissing you...of tasting you."

The story is flying by...I'm really into it, and then I hit a brick wall.. I so wasn't expecting that curve ball... then, I get beyond that, and then dammit...along comes a smack upside the head.. what the hell...why'd that have to happen? I am impatiently awaiting the release of Front & least it's not a long wait.
