Official Blurb:

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. The series takes you on their journey, as well as their band mates and friends. The Back-Up Series is a true love story, rock star style.

As I continued my binge reading for the 2015 Cleveland author event, I stumbled across the Back Up Series Box Set by A.M. Madden. My co-blogger Nikki highly recommended the series so of course I had to read it! I've not read much in the rocker romance genre so I wasn't sure what to expect. Within the pages of these 3 books, I found myself sucked into the rocker sex God world. 

Then Back Up series strummed a chord to my heart. This twisted and crazy musical thrill ride romance story kept me reading through the night and even at work the next day. You feel the tension between Jack and Leila from the very first page. Love doesn't come easy for these two characters after both being burned from a previous relationship. Leila is a very likeable female lead. Getting a chance at her shot to make it big, she's cautious of Jack's advances. Her career means everything to her and she doesn't want to muddy the waters by starting off with a romance scandal. She doesn't just jump into bed with him and I loved that about her. 

Jack is a rocker bad boy. His band, Devil's Lair is gaining in popularity. Knowing they needed something to top their competition they decide to add a female back up singer. Leila instantly stuns him the moment she steps into the studio. She has it all in terms of the look and the voice. His heart along with his other brain goes into overdrive. He wants her, but can't or shouldn't have her. His resolve is about to be tested when they embark on their tour together. Close quarters, spending months together and their building attraction is going to kill him if he doesn't do something about it soon. 

AM Madden, you have rocked my literary soul. This book series changed my mind about rocker novels. If Devil's Lair was a real band, I'd be fan girling just as much as I will when I meet you tomorrow!!!
