Encore is the third book in the Back Up Series by A.m. Madden. This book brings us the continuation of Jack & Leila’s story as well as bringing us into the relationships of Matt and Lori & Evan and Lizzy. We even get some (although not much) dirt on Trey. Encore leads up to his upcoming book Backstage which will be available before you know it!!
I am going to break the story down by couple and give you a hint of what is in store for you. Let’s begin with the rock star couple that started it all!!
Jack & Leila
When we last saw them Jack and Leila had just gotten married. All their troubles seem to be behind them and they are moving on. A year has passed and they are still as happy as ever. But wait….they are going to be even happier because there will be a LIttle Lair on the way!! How cool is that? Jack is excited for more than one reason…
“You’re going to be an amazing mother, my very own MILF.”
These two are as steamy as ever….I think I even blushed a couple of times (way to go author lady!) Jack can still bring out the “beast” in Leila….she is more insatiable than ever. As their lives change and their world grows they continue to get to know each other more and more throughout this story. It was great to see them enjoying life’s little surprises and be surrounded by everyone that they loved.
Their love is one of those that is timeless and just amazing….the epitome of soul mates.
“Fucked with I was. She not only fucked with my libido, she fucked with my mind, in a way nothing ever has in my entire life…ad I wouldn’t want it any other way.”
“You suck the life out of me. You make it so I forget to breathe, I think.” She kisses my neck, adding, “Every kiss is like our first one. Remember, on the balcony during your party? I’ve never had a kiss as powerful as that one. You made me weak in the knees. I fell in love with you after that kiss.”
Lori & Matt
The story of this couple is where the angst in this story comes from. Lori has finally gotten what she has wanted for years….but is she happy? We hear it from her POV, how she is struggling with their relationship and wanting more. It broke my heart that she seems so confused, it’s so unlike her character.
“It’s almost as if I’m making a mental pro and con list. It needs to be said that his (Matt) pro list is beating Trey’s by a mile. Trey has one pro…he’s Trey.”
I liked being inside her head, we really didn’t know her that much before. I think she is a character that I will like to hear more about!
Evan & Lizzy
Oh Evan…steal my heart away! These two have to be the cutest couple in this book. They are just sweet and down to earth. I loved Evan along but hearing from him how much he loves Lizzy just made me melt even more. They make the best of things, being apart is really hard on them. They are so strong and love so fiercely that I really want to know more about them…
“Evan, I would rather die than live without you.”
Trey, Trey, Trey….you are a jerk, you are self centered, you shut EVERYONE out. I want to know what happened to you to make you like this. Leila breaks through a little bit but he is still a brick wall! I loved how he jokes around with Leila all the time, and it’s obvious how much he likes her….even if he has a funny way of showing it LOL
“I don’t love. I heavily like you,” he responds.
He is such a complex character and I absolutely CANNOT wait for Backstage so all I will say is #writeAMwrite ;)
Encore was a sweet and sexy installation to the Back Up Series. I truly enjoyed getting to know more of the characters through their POV and I hope you will too!
