Sexy rocker alert!!! Back-Up by A.M. Madden

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.
My review:
Leila Marino has a dream, her dream is to become a rock star. She has a regular singing gig with a band who has become like a second family to her, but singing with The Cliffhangers is not enough for her anymore. One night a complete stranger approaches her and invites her to audition for an up and coming band, and without looking back Leila goes to her audition.
Jack Lair is the leader of the band Leila auditions for. He takes his career and his band mates very seriously and is loyal to them ‘til the end, but when he comes to his personal life, he’s a bit of a ladies man. That is, until he meets Leila and he starts realizing that maybe his man whore ways are not enough anymore. Leila and Jack become friends but afraid that a personal relationship will ruin their professional one, they remain friends and do what’s best for the band. Eventually they get together as a couple and their chemistry is undeniable.
Secondary characters are as well written as the main characters and it helps the story with the human touch as well as the secondary story lines. I like the fact that the relationship between Leila and Jack develops over time and that the author took time to build the characters and give us some background history. It might seem like a bit slow or a read at the beginning for certain people but I thought that she did a good job introducing us to the characters and helping us understand them better. Another thing I liked is that the book is written in dual POV’s which give us a better insight on both characters’ lives. Just know that we are left with a little bit of a cliffhanger, nothing that’s going to kill you but interesting enough that you’ll want to pick that second book when it comes out ;-) The story is well written and flows smoothly. All and all, a solid debut book for A.M. Madden. Recommended!!!!

About the author:

Beck (Corps Security Book 3) is out now...

December 22, 2013

**Warning** This book is intended for a mature reading**


I’ve always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I’m content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn’t need a man.

But the truth is I’m just as broken as the rest of you. I’m terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again.

All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No… he doesn’t just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can’t have.

So I did the only thing I know how to do.
I run.
But he just won’t let me go.


The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn’t want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out.

To make her mine.

She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.
She’s it for me and she knows it.
She’s just too scared to admit it.

**NO cliffhanger, HEA, inter-connected standalones**

Sometimes in life all you need is someone to stick with you through thick and thin and show you that no matter what happens you're not alone and you are definitely worth it.
I loved the other two books of this series but this one, to me, is by far the best.
Dee breaks your heart, this poor girl has been through hell and back and at times you wonder how she was able to keep it together. Everyone that was supposed to love her and protect her in life failed her, she's tormented by the trauma she suffered and builds walls all around her not letting anyone come meet the real person hiding inside. That is, until she meets Beck.
Beck falls in love with the girl everyone sees as carefree and fun, but soon he realizes that all that is a mask that Dee created to protect herself against heart break. Instead of live up to her expectations he proves time and time that he might be all she needs to set herself free.
I'm always a little cautious when a story deals with deep mental issues, not all writers do their research and the result is a story that is not credible or lacks the human experience. This is not the case with this book, Harper really looks into Dee's feelings and issues and makes her a very believable character.
I cried during different points throughout the story, we all have a little of Dee inside of us from time to time. Yes, the story is sexy and their sexual chemistry is off the charts, but that only compliments a well written story.

As a reader, you will be a voyeur into their private and intimate moments right after the shooting in Mullaly Park.

The Plus One Chronicles by @Jennifer Lyon

December 2, 2013 Don’t miss this bestselling, sexy and emotional trilogy now all together in a boxed set!
A proposition brings billionaire ex-UFC Fighter Sloane Michaels and beautifully damaged Kat Thayne together in fiery passion, but will a dark and dangerous obsession tear them apart?

**This boxed set is intended for readers 18 and over due to sexual content.**


Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.

Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.


Savagely sexy billionaire Sloane Michaels ruthlessly controls his life and everything in it. Even his sex partners are carefully negotiated plus-one arrangements, including his latest, the fiery bakery owner, Kat Thayne. But Sloane’s control is challenged when his mentor becomes seriously ill, and Kat takes over more and more his heart. Sloane is in a desperate balancing act of trying to keep the woman he loves while attaining the vengeance he craves.

After surviving an attack six years ago, Kat Thayne escaped her fears in the protective world of her beloved bakery. Then Sloane Michaels storms into her life, making her feel beautiful, strong and sexy. Yet as Kat pushes her boundaries and uncovers a dangerous secret in her past, Sloane’s controlling side emerges. Worried that Sloane will possess her mind, body and soul, Kat fights to keep her hard won independence. But just as Sloane demands her complete surrender, she discovers he has a dark side that could destroy them both.

Book Three: OBSESSION:

In the explosive conclusion to The Plus One Chronicles Trilogy, obscenely rich, jaggedly handsome and still obsessed with love and vengeance, Sloane Michaels must face an impossible choice: lose the woman he loves or betray his twin sister’s memory.

Watching the man she adores destroy himself for revenge, Kat Thayne knows she should run and never look back. But running isn't her way anymore. Kat has grown into a fierce fighter, and the man who helped her get there is the very man who needs her strength now. But as the sizzling passion and hard-won love bind Kat and Sloane even tighter together, old secrets and lies explode around them. Danger threatens. And Kat soon realizes that she’s risking more than her heart to be with Sloane…she’s risking her very life.

My opinion on the books:
All I can say is WOW! It's not everyday that one comes upon a great book, now, add two more to the mix and you have a fantastic trilogy.
This is a riveting story with very interesting characters. Kat and Sloan's chemistry is off the charts, and even thought the story has its hot and steamy parts, it is truly compassionate and sweet. Be ready to have a box of Kleenex nearby because I can assure you you will need them while reading book 3.
I love the author's writing and every book leaves you wanting more. Fantastic story and a very talented writer. Highly recommended.

Bound by @Brenda Rothert

College senior Kate Camden has learned to adapt - to her last year of school, to the promise of motherhood, to the fact that she’s doing it all alone. But just when she’s learned to adjust, heartache threatens to break her apart.
Pro hockey player Jason “Ryke” Ryker has it all: adoring fans, a promising career, and a beautiful wife. But when his seemingly perfect life is shaken by tragedy, he’s left questioning whether having it all is ever more than an illusion.
When circumstance brings Kate and Ryke together, they discover they don’t have to hurt alone. Bound by a grief that haunts them both, they must rely on one another to survive heartbreak. But that grief is more powerful than they realize, and the tie that binds them together may ultimately tear them apart.

I got this book thinking it was another romantic story with one of my favorite subjects, hockey players. Well, I was right about one thing, one of the main characters is a hockey platers, but this book is so much more.

The beginning of the book give us the background story for the main characters and it is one of heartbreak and loss. There's no other way to describe the incredibly painful past these two characters have. 

Kate and Ryke meet at a grief support group. He can see the pain emanating from her right away and feels attracted to her. Kate is still too broken from her loss to see or really appreciate anything or anyone. She's looking for a job and he provides that job for her.
Once working for him they start imperceptively helping each other not only survive but to start to live and love again.

 “The two of us were bound together by the thread of grief, but it wasn’t just our mutual loss that united us. We’d survived them, found each other and discovered that sometimes, from darkness come light.”

I give this book five incredible stars, Brenda did a beautiful job transforming pain into hope and love. Highly recommended.
