Rock band Devils Lair is looking for a back up Singer to record and Tour with them due to their upcoming newfound success.
Leila Marino is already a singer and in a Band in her hometown, they are a good Band but Leila has always dreamt of a singing career for herself, a golden opportunity arises for her and she auditions with the Rock Band Devils Lair (one of her favourite Bands) Leila is a bit of a klutz and little awestruck around the Band and fancying the Lead Singer is going to keep her on her toes. Jack Lair, lead singer and Manwhore extraordinaire, any girl anywhere anytime, he is one hell of a guy until the Audition where he meets Leila and from then on every girl he has sex with he can only picture Leila in his mind and the long road ahead finds the two of them eventually coming together, and sharing their fears. hopes and dreams.
This book had me hooked after the first couple of chapters (I wasn't overly impressed with Jack being such a Man whore) but eventually got over that and thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was a truly amazing read and cant wait for book 2.
Considering this is a 1st book by this Author It had me totally engrossed, all character's in this book were so well written and I could sorta relate to them, I loved reading about Leila's Family and how close she was with her Dad, and her Band members and her really good friends.
well done, looking forward to reading more from this Author.
This book has been on my wish list for months, and when I was given it, I was so excited! I have read a few books by AM Madden, and loved them! That given, I was looking forward to reading Back-Up as the blurb drew me in initially. I adored the dual point of view that this book follows, as it gives you a more rounded story due to seeing the story from both points of view.
Jack. He was sexy, vulnerable and humble and yet he had a cheekiness and such a talent, that you'd expect him to be arrogant. His band, Devil's Lair, is just taking off and they need a new angle. I loved how they weren't afraid of trying a new sound to make them stand out in the rock world and yet manage to be hot men, with a sexy back-up singer. He initially seems like a manwhore, but I had a feeling he was hiding something. And then we bring in Leila, someone who pulls him in and makes him want to be a relationship sort of man. He is cheeky, but what I loved, was how he took in consideration Leila and how she would feel about it going wrong or messing up her future. This made me swoon for Jack.
Leila is a fiesty young woman, who performs with a band made up of close friends, and a mistake (twice), who perform in her local bar in her town. She is the back-up there but loves her men and want the best for them. Leila gets a fantastic opportunity for herself and yet still thinks about how it would impact those she loves and her guys in the band. I found her a very level-headed woman, who gets completely lust-filled around Jack. They have this pull that she has never experienced, but she knows it'll only bring around mistakes... Or will it?
Their chemistry is superb, and the storyline had me begging for answers quicker than what I was reading.Read more ›
I took a little while to really get into the story and found it a little slow going, however, it is definitely worth persevering with as I found the second half much more entertaining and enthralling. At this point I felt the angst kicked up a notch and there was much more wit to make me chuckle.
Jack and Leila were likeable characters and when they finally get together, I did a little happy jig. One of the things I liked about this was even though this was a rocker book, the band are pretty clean laced and that actually set it apart from a lot of other rocker books about.
I really enjoyed that we got to see a fair bit about the supporting characters and found this made it a more rounded read.
Be warned, this is not a S/A. It doesn't end on a cliffy sufficient to want you to toss your kindle but there's certainly more to come from this couple.
Come the end, my interest was piqued sufficiently that I will certainly continue with the story as it looks as though the real action is all to come.
I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Leila gets the job as a backing singer for the band where she will record in the studio and go on tour with these sexy rockers.
We meet lead singer Jack Lair who is living the rock star lifestyle and has had his share of women and plenty more that would love to bed him. Jack is happy with his life until Leila walks into Jack's life.
As soon as Jack and Leila set eyes on each other the attraction between the two is immediate. Despite the attraction the two of them decide not to act on their feelings and just remain friends due to having to go on tour with each other.
But the attraction between these two characters is to much and give into their attraction for one another. This leads them to becoming a red hot couple and everything between them is perfect. But a mistake from Jack's past rears its ugly head and threatens their future together.
I can't wait to read book two
