Blog Tour: Front & Center (The Back-Up Series #2) by A.M. Madden

Jack was a rock star on the way to fame. Leila was following her dream and joining his band as a back-up singer. An insane attraction sparked between them that they couldn’t deny. Attraction quickly led to so much more. They ignored all the warnings and fell in love. 

When the couple embark on their tour, they couldn’t be more excited to travel the country hand in hand on the way to stardom. The road ahead is filled with miles and miles of possibilities. Along with their band, Devil’s Lair, they feel nothing could stop them. 

An angry ex-band-mate, a pregnant ex-girlfriend, and never-ending Internet gossip all attempt to wreak havoc on their developing relationship. New love does not mix well with stress, pressure and guilt. Together they face each and every challenge, stubbornly fighting for what they have. Will their determination be enough?

*I received this book as in ARC exchange for an honest review*

I have to start off this F&C is book two of the Back-Up Series. If you have not read Back-Up yet, what are you waiting for?! This may contain spoilers off book one so if you have not read, you are warned. 

Front & Center starts off right where we left off, which is something I personally love. Jack, Leila and the rest of Devil’s Lair are off on their first tour and the fans are loving them! Jack and Leila are so madly in love it’s sickening to the rest of the band, but secretly they all couldn’t be happier that these two have found each other. Devil’s Lair is on fire, climbing the charts, scheduling extra tour stops, nothing will stop them. 

Jack’s ex-girlfriend, Jessa plays the perfect villain again in this book. Claiming to be pregnant with Jack’s baby, is throwing a major wrench into this young relationship. Lei is doing everything she can to keep her jealousy and anger at bay while comforting Jack of possibly being the father of this baby. Yet, something isn’t settling right for Lei, she can sense that Jessa is up to something. 

Leila is petrified to announce her and Jack’s relationship, worried they fans will hate her or think she is sleeping her way into the band. Turns out though, she worried for nothing! The majority of the fans love the idea of them together! Until Jessa leaks her pregnancy that it… 

This book had so many twists in the plot my heart was racing with every page. I don’t want to give too much away but you will not be disappointed! While I am an avid fan of A.M. Madden and fell completely in love with Jack and Leila in Back-Up this book completely surpassed anything I could have imagined. This is A.M.’s debut series, and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next!! If F&C is any indication, Encore is going to be amazing!!! 

HIGHLY recommend this book and if you have not read Back-Up yet, you need too! This is not your ordinary rocker book, the connection between Jack and Leila jump off the page, and there is A LOT of that happening because he can’t keep his hands off of her. I think I can even see a spin off happening with some of the other band members.. Maybe I can plant that idea in A.M.s mind *wink wink* This is a Must Read 5 Stars!!

Back-Up (Back-Up Series #1)


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.

A.M. Madden's debut novel Back-up is the first in a series of three. Book two, Front & Center and book three, Encore are both scheduled for release in early 2014.
