Review by Maimeo's Angels: 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 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.

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

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
I really love A.M. Madden’s style of writing. Back-Up is book one in the Back-Up series. 
This was my first rock book by this author and I was interested to see how 
Leila Marino has always wanted to be a singer. Currently singing in a bar with another group, 
she is looking for more. When she lands her dream job as a back-up singer for Devil’s Lair 
she knows she will also be going on tour with them. Jack Lair is the lead singer of the band 
which is climbing the ladder of success, totally gorgeous and an obviously very popular with 
the ladies.
The attraction between Leila and Jack is almost instantaneous although they both try hard to 
resist it. 
This story is told from the POV of both Leila and Jack which I really enjoyed. As I have 
found with previous books from A.M. Madden, her characters seem as though they could be 
real. I not only enjoyed reading about Leila and Jack, but also the secondary characters. There 
are always so many layers to her books and Back-Up is no exception. You find you get to 
know them all in some way and that is a credit to her writing style.
Inevitably they both give in to the attraction and chemistry between them. It would seem that 
life both professionally and personally has finally taken off for Leila and Jack. Of course it 
wouldn’t be a story without drama and drama comes back in the form of Jack’s past which 
threatens the happiness he and Leila now have. Life becomes a roller coaster. What will 

The best way to thank an author is to leave a review.

Amazon Best Selling Author, A.M. Madden's debut novel was Back-up, the first in The Back-Up Series. The series includes Back-Up, Front & Center, Encore, Backstage, and The Devil's Lair Novella. She has also written two stand alone novels, Stone Walls and The Shortstop.

A.M. Madden is a wife, a mother, an avid reader of romance novels, and now an author. In her books, she aspires to create fun, sexy, realistic romantic stories. She wants to create characters that the reader could relate to and feel as if they know personally. A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic, she loves getting lost in a good book. She also uses every free moment of her time writing, while raising teenage boys.
