REVIEW: Back Up by: A.M. Madden (@ammadden1)

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.

          I received this book as an ARC for an honest review and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. Rocker romances hold a special place in my heart so when this one came across to us, I had to beat my sister away from it :) A.M. Madden has left me wanting more!! The fact that this is her debut novel blows me away!!  Back Up does leave you with a cliff hanger and I am hoping that she doesn't leave us hanging for long!!
          Leila Marino is a back up singer for The Cliffhangers, but she wants more.. She wants it all! After trying out for the Devil's Lair, a hot up and coming band, she is a bit star struck. Meeting Jack Lair has left her with her tongue glued to the top of her mouth and a tingling feeling down below. H.O.T.  Only problem... he is her new boss...
          When Jack lays eyes on Leila, the over bearing feeling of making her his is a bit unsettling. Knowing that he needs to stay away from her for the sake of the band, he begins to go a little crazy. Until one night with a little too much alcohol and finding himself alone with Leila, he just can't help himself.
          The two are constantly fighting their inner thoughts, both knowing that for the sake of the band, they need to stay away. Leaving for tour in a few weeks, being forced to be alone.. on a tour bus...for 6 months... how in the world are they going to do that.
          I absolutely loved the chemistry that these two had! Will they be able to stay away from each other? Will a relationship ruin the bands success? Can this possibly make the band stronger, if their feelings are shown through their performances? I cannot wait to see where the story heads next while they are on tour!!
Enjoy <3
