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.

A.M. Madden is a wife, a mother, an avid reader of romance novels and now an author. In Back-up she aspired to create a fun, sexy, realistic romantic story. She wanted to create characters that the reader could relate to and feel as if they knew personally.

A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic, she loves getting lost in a good book. She uses every free moment of her time writing, while working a full time job as well as raising teenage boys.

Jack & Leila’s story continues in this amazing book. I loved it! It has everything. Romance and mystery. It’s a little bit scary, a little bit of complicated drama and a whole lot of HOTNESS!!!!!

We pick up right where we left off. Leila just found out Jack’s sex buddy is pregnant with possibly is child. She’s dealing with it but it’s not easy. They are on the tour bus and need to fix things. Along with that the band is adjusting to Jack & Leila as a couple and she’s trying to get to know her bandmates. She’s also putting a lot of pressure on herself to be the best and scouring the internet for “haters” will have it’s effects.

Jack is just trying to keep all the balls he’s got in the air from crashing into himself or worse into Leila. His one constant….Leila. Good gosh does this man love her? Absolutely!!! They both love each other so much it’s a joy to read about. The depth of their characters and the effects their love has on each other is just outstanding.

Speaking of Jack’s balls…LOL….There’s Jessa the potential baby mama. Danny the physco that’s on the loose. A mole in the tour crew. Leila getting used to tour and bandmates and leaving home. Jennifer who bounces from getting on his nerves to actually being a huge help. And a whole host of other little things. Can Jack keep it together or will he make the biggest mistake of his life? Will their love last and be strong enough to get them through these trying times?

Jack & Lelia have a lot to overcome in this book. It’s so hard to review……so much happens and I don’t want to leave spoilers here. There’s chases & danger and great times & extremely heartbreaking times. It’s just soooooo amazing!!!!

I love this series but I think this book is EVEN BETTER!!!! There is a 3rd book, Encore, and I can’t wait for it. I love the 2nd book in a series. It’s the meat of the series where everything happens. Mrs. Madden….you hit this one out of the park!!!! Love! Love! Love! This is a MUST READ!!!!

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?
