This box set started off really good... I was loving it until about half way, it just started to drag on and on. It just didn't keep my interest. Maybe i just wasn't in the mood at the time... I will give this author another chance on a more stand alone book. I felt this was just too long. Way too long!!,

I have read all of these separately and I absolutely love this series. The characters and story are simply amazing. A.M. Madden is one of my all time fav authors now

BACK UP review
What an awesome story. No-one is uber rich or comes across as a jerk/bitch (well almost everyone) I love the relationship between all the characters, the sub stories have meaning to the main story and the romance between Jack and Leila is beautiful. The story made me laugh out loud at times, go "awww" and gasp when certain story twists were revealed.
I'm really looking forward to reading the next one in the Back Up series, Front and Centre!

If you thought Back Up was great then you will be blown away by Front & Center! This one has suspense with a lil twist, lots of romance, tears, laughter and the sex, wowzers (I'm use I was blushing reading this while in public) I hope that Encore is just as god as the first two.
Kudos to AM Madden, one of my new favourite authors

ENCORE review
I thought the first two in the Back Up series were great but with Encore, AM knocks it out of the stadium (like my lil rock star pun??) This is my fav of the series, there are soo many fantabolous moments, especially between Jack and Leila - they are still hopelessly in love and Devil's Lair are still the amazeball rockers that they were in the beginning.
This one didn't have the drama of the first two but its story is still just as powerful. Its sad to say goodbye to Jack, Leila, Hunter, Scott and Trey but sens as their characters are shared amongst some of my favourite authors, I am sure they will pop up from time to time.
I cannot wait to read more from A.M

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing series, love Jack Lair!! 3 September 2014
By Niki S - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Amazing set of books! Won't be disappointed! Review for each book below:

At first glance you may think this is the typical bad boy rock star and good hometown girl story but I can assure you that it isn't. It's so much better. I immediately loved all the characters and was completely entranced in the story to the point that I couldn't stop reading and stayed up half the night because I needed to see what was going on. There are plot twists, amazing steamy scenes, jokes and funny things going on around every page. At times I wanted to throw my kindle across the room but couldn't stop reading long enough to do it! Jack and Leila have quickly become one of my top 5 favorite couples. Well done to the author and I look forward to reading the next book. If you are contemplating one clicking this, do yourself a favor and do it. You won't be disappointed!!

Somehow this book was even better than the first which is saying a lot since I adored the first book. Jack and Leila's story continues in this book which has its fair share of twists and turns as well as swoon worthy scenes (mmm Jack). About halfway through I had to stop for a moment because I was so angry and was about to throw my kindle! I couldn't stay away long aka about 3 minutes because I had to see where it was all headed. The author absolutely captivates the reader and sends them on quite the ride while developing all the characters perfectly. I can't wait to see the next book as this author keeps getting better and better. Highly recommend this series.

There are very few books that can render you speechless and this is one of them for me! This book continues the story of Jack and Leila and the other members of Devil's Lair and Cliffhangers. This book is amazing and I absolutely loved reading about the characters from the first two books and what is going on in their lives. It's well written and easy to follow despite the changing POV. It is near impossible to write too much without giving anything away! So I will have to leave it at this! A.M.Madden continues to shine and now she needs to write more because I need to see blank get with blank (lol)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Series! 27 September 2014
By Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow! I haven't read very many Rocker Series but I LOVED Back-Up! Actually, new addiction is a better way to describe how I felt about this book!

Jack Lair is the mouth-watering lead singer for the band Devil's Lair. Leila Marino's biggest dream is to become a rock star and after being in the right place at the right time, she gets the opportunity to audition for Devil's Lair as back up singer. The meeting between Jack and Leila is like the 4th of July fireworks! As they tour together, they can't stop the pull towards each other and the love affair started. The chemistry is off the charts between these two! It turned into love for them but of course, drama from Jack's love and leave them past popped up to slap them in the face!

This book had me from the beginning until the end. I didn't want to put it down for even a few minutes! The story had my emotions going all over the place! I can't say this enough, get this book! It will become your new addiction like it is mine!

The Back-up Series is truly my new addiction! I finished Front & Center in less than 24 hours! It was even better than the first book in series if possible! A.M. Madden just keeps getting better!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jack, Leila, and Devil's Lair! A.M writes characters that are easy to fall in love with! Jack and Leila are great characters that you can't help but cheer for a HEA! The book picks up as the band goes on tour and Jack and Leila fall more in love! However, roadblocks having to do with Jack's past, pop up everywhere for their new love as Devil's Lair popularity picks up speed! This book was very emotionally charged for me. I laughed, got tears in my eyes, yelled, cheered out loud, and had heart in throat from action near the end! Let me not forget the HOT, steamy love scenes! The duel POVs just made the story even hotter for me!

A.M. Madden had rocked my world with this book and series! It's my new addiction! Encore (book 3) can't come out soon enough! Do yourself a favor and read The Back-up Series!

It's been really hard for me to write a review for Encore because I wanted just the right words! I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED Encore are the words I can't stop saying!

Encore was the perfect ending to this amazing series. AM writes in several characters POVs and that really gave it something extra special. My emotions were all over the place. I laughed, cried, cheered, and actually felt like I was in the story! Plus, the love scenes are super HOT! Jack and Leila have a love story that I only dream about!

My favorite books are the ones that I get lost in and A.M. Madden has written a series that does just that! Do yourself a favor and read this book! Amazing book, amazing series, and an amazing Author! I recommend it to everyone! Well done A.M. Madden!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hawt Rockers, Kick-@ss Chicks, and a Fun house of roller coaster fun!!! 25 September 2014
By DesireeGriggs - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition

This book was freaking amazing! Right from the start you get pulled into this whole new world. These characters, make you feel exactly what they are describing. In the rock and roll industry there are many who scratch and claw their way up, just as our leads do in Back Up. Through our leads we get to experience every high and low of their lives, all the benefits and rewards, and the prices you have to pay. If you are considering this new read, stop considering and just go for it! You will fall for this brand new world and you won't want to leave! Can't wait for the next one!

Front & Center

So, we just thought Back-Up was an emotional roller coaster that was hot as hell! Well, wait until you get your hands on this one! Jack and Leila are probably the most real characters I've read. I love the design of their entire story. The supporting characters are just as important to this book and just as fun to read about. Front & Center is full of anticipation, love, lust, drama, and scandals. Front & Center is full of twists and turns that keep you guessing all the way through! Did I mention this book was HOT? Leila and Jack just have this chemistry about them that makes them irresistible.

The way A.M. Madden has laid out this tale is remarkable! This series keeps you wanting more and dying for the next book. Really the only thing I can think of that could be considered a negative about the Back-Up series is that there won't be enough. If you are debating on this series, just read the rest of the reviews. I don't think there is anything anyone could not love about these books!


Wow! What else do you say to the perfect ending of a trilogy?

We have already been blown away by the gambit of emotions by books 1 and 2, right? Then how did it just happen again? Madden has perfected emotional writing in Encore!

Leila and Jack Lair are the perfect rock star couple. Everyone wants them or wants to be them. Make no mistake though, this couple has been through the trials of hell to make it where they are.

Up for tour again, they couldn't be more excited. This time around they know what to expect, they're prepared, and they are stoked to go. On this tour they have their own opening act, one close to them.

With having been through stalkers, kidnapping, over zealous fans, and their own insecurities, what could stop them? Never tempt fate with questions like this, because she'll see them as challenges. Jack, Leila and the whole crew are really in for it this time. Will everyone see their happy endings?

I have been thrilled to be along for the journey of the Back-Up series. These books are seductive, thrilling, funny, and emotional. With amazing writing and an awesome plot line, you can't lose when you join the groupies of the Devil's Lair.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED THE WHOLE SERIES!!! 16 September 2014
By AD Justice - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Back-Up: I read this book and immediately fell in love with Jack Lair, Leila Marino and AM Madden! Back-Up has a mixture of love, angst, humor, friendship, and hot as hell band members. Leila is a strong female character who is smart and thoughtful. The love scenes are steamy and the development of the characters and their relationships are awesome.
Loved this book!

Front & Center: Front and Center is the second book in A.M. Madden’s Back-Up series and it continues the story of Jack Lair, of Devil’s Lair, and Leila Morino. I consumed this book in just over 24 hours – that’s how good it is. The storyline continues with the love between Jack and Leila, the Devil’s Lair band tour, and the forces that come against them and try to tear them apart.
The characters are believable. They come alive in your mind and make you laugh out loud, cry, and become enraged on their behalf. If you weren’t already a Jack Lair groupie after reading Back-Up, the first book in the series, you will definitely be after this book. Jack is so endearing, even when he screws up you know that there is a good man inside.
Leila is smart, strong, determined and loyal. I love to read a strong female character that is also not afraid to love with her whole heart. She’s not afraid to put herself out on the line to make sure that her relationships don’t crumble. But she doesn’t fall apart when the chips are down – she stands her ground and holds her head high.
The supporting characters add an extra dimension to the book. While the main focus is on Jack and Leila, the band members are also an integral part of the story. You can imagine the antics that go on between four men stuck on a tour bus together. My favorite band character (other than Jack!) is Trey. For whatever reason, I picture Slash from Guns N’ Roses when I read him.
From the book:
As we move towards the bus, one of the photographers calls out, “How long have you been together?”
Trey deadpans, “Hunter and Scott would like their privacy during this stressful time.” With that, he boards the bus, leaving the cameras flashing and Hunter and Scott open mouthed, red faced and ready to kill him.
Take the rollercoaster ride with the Devils – you won’t regret it! I can’t wait for the next book!

Encore: I will admit that I'm having a hard time writing a review for this book without spoiling everything in it.....So, I will start with -- I loved everything in it!!!
Encore continues with the story of Jack and Leila, but adds so much more depth and insight to the host of other characters in this series. A.M. Madden does not disappoint in bringing you directly into the thoughts and feelings of Lori, Ev, Jack and Leila. There are so many poignant moments that I wish I could just take directly from the book! I cried, I laughed, my heart melted and I felt the angst and doubt. AM pulls you into the character's feelings so well, so real, you would swear you are right there with them.
I love getting lost in a book. That is the mark of a wonderful writer to me -- if they can make me feellike I am actually that character, I feel those feelings, and I can't wait to see what happens next. AM does all of that and more in this book!
If you thought you were in love with Jack Lair before....You. Ain't. Seen. Nothing. Yet. (He's still mine, btw.)
Awesome book, AM!!!
