Trey Taylor was loving life. Bass player to the world famous rock band Devil’s Lair, chicks falling to their knees at every turn, no one to be held accountable to for his actions…life rocked. He had all he needed, food to sustain his body, sex to sustain his libido, rock to sustain his soul. For years he walked to the beat of his own drum, and made no excuses to anyone. Running and hiding can temporarily distract your fate, but it won’t derail it. Fate was coming for him, whether he liked it or not. His past was gaining ground and threatening all the secrets he desperately tried to hide. His present was slowing him down, making him feel emotions he buried years ago. The two are about to collide. Will Trey survive the impact?

  "You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have"

This is the first quote that came to mind when I finished this book so I had to include it in my review. Words fail me at the moment to describe how incredibly touching, heartbreaking and powerful this story was.

We all think we know Trey from the three previous installments of the Back Up Series, but the true is, that the man hiding behind the dark sunglasses is a complete mystery to the world.
I'm not going to give much, if anything, about the plot because this is a story that you need to read to understand the real human being hiding behind not only sunglasses, but the crude jokes, and the constant desire to sleep around. And yes, I know this is a fictional character, but after reading this I can assure you that you will see Trey under a different light.

We all deal with the situations that life throws at us in different ways, and Trey was dealt a very rotten hand by it. This man is a survivor through and through, I was in tears the first couple of pages and I felt compelled more than once throughout the book to reach out and hold him and offer some comfort. This man's journey felt so real that it touched me deeply.

Infinite sadness, rage, hate, compassion, acceptance, brotherhood and love are some of the words that came to mind after finish reading. I love the fact that A.M. decided to concentrate the storyline around Trey's life and what made him the man he became instead of his stage persona. I feel like it made the story more authentic and it gave it the human touch needed to understand the character better.

The author also gives us some insight on the other band members and the bond that they all shared from the very beginning until the present time. Please know that the story deals with some delicate subjects but Mrs Madden did an excellent job approaching these subjects and showcasing them in the best way possible. This a brilliantly told tale of survival and second chances.

I feel like giving this book 5 stars won't do it justice. If you're were a fan of the first three books of this series please do yourself a favor and grab Backstage ASAP, I can assure you you won't be disappointed.
