Review – Back Up by A. M. Madden

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.

5 Rock-Star Roses – Romance

Starting this story I was immediately skeptical, I thought what am I doing reading another Rock-Star romance.  Thank goodness I kept reading, this is not a typical run of the mill, trending Rock Star Love Story.  This was an intense emotional build-up of friends becoming lovers.  The commentary from the band members and friends were hilarious, sweet and charming enough to keep me burning through the chapters.


5 hearts – Friends becoming Lovers

The sexual angst between these two kept me enthralled, I desperately wanted these two to connect at once.  I’m pleased that they did not immediately fall into bed with one another at first glance.  Instead it was a slow build up of friendship and respect between one another, the ‘getting to know each other’, phase was smart, clever and witty.

Who would have thought Jack Lair a totally hawt hunk-a-rock-star would have smarts, I mean, a man-whore with a brain?   Loved it! This talented and sexy artist thinks he has it all, groupies, parties, success… until he meets a little spitfire of a back-up singer that rocks him off his game.

Then we have sexy career minded Leila Marino, extremely talented in her vocal abilities and driven to succeed.  Her one shot at stardom appears in the up and coming rock band, Devil’s Lair.  She’s always had a little thing and a big old crush on his holy hawtness and prepares to defend her feelings while holding back her sex starved cravings.


5 – Mocca Chocolata YaYa Lips

This book had me licking my lips until they were chapped with all its sexual tension and the steamy, erotic love scenes had me squirming around in my seat.  The emotional feelings this couple showed in every touch and kiss they shared was enough to have me dreaming of my own Mr. Sandman.

All in all this was a fantastic read and I found the friendship to lovers buildup was very gratifying.  In the end I found getting to know one another and building a solid foundation of respect is the only way to grow together and learn to love one another.  Insta-Love in the real world might be possible but is just not realistic and frankly does not last.  Instead we read about a kinship of friends building a refreshing tale of a love that last till the end of time.

Quote:  Everyone should live his or her lives without regret.

Thank you A. M. Madden.


happy reading
