The Subclub Presents The Rocker That Needs Me (The Rocker #3) by Terri Anne Browning Blog Tour Stop

Title: The Rocker That Needs Me
Author: Terri Anne Browning


The Demon…

I’ve been fighting my own demons for most of my life. The alcohol seems to numb the pain, but it never makes the nightmares go away. All I want in life is a little peace. When I met my angel it felt like I found it, but there is so much standing between us. Why does she have to be so young…?

The Demon’s Angel…

Meeting Drake was the best thing to ever happen to me. I found my friend, my soul mate. But he lets my age stand between us. There is something that haunts him, and I selfishly want to be the one that helps him conquer his ghosts. If he would just let me in, let me closer, I think I could help him…


My Review

5 of 5 The Rocker That Needs Me

First I want to say two things about this book and my review. First I would like to say that I in no way condone CHEATING or condone relations that involve young girls and older guys. With that said it is a reality that happens everyday and I really loved this story because it was raw and emotional and had aspects that hold true in the rock world. If you don't like raw and gritty stories then do not read this series or review. With that said here is my review.

Drake has demons and he is trying very hard to fight them. He tries to drown his problems with alcohol. Thinking the alcohol is going to numb the pain he is going through but all he ends up doing is making things worse. Drake has an angel a girl he is in love with but she comes with complications and that is just the tip of the ice berg because Drake does what men do best. He gets the girl his angel but then treats her wrong and they go through ups and downs but in the end Drake will have to decide on whether he wants his angel and what he is willing to do to keep her.

Lana knows Drake is her soul mate. She loves him and he loves her but there is that pesky little age difference that is coming between them. But Lana is determined to show Drake love and show him that no matter what they can be together and be a strong couple. Lana is willing to give it all up for Drake but is Drake willing to do the same for Lana? Can he and Lana have a relationship with Drake and not get hurt?

This is a MUST MUST read series and I look forward to book four. Thanks Terri!


Drakes POV:

My head snapped around at the sound of that voice, and I was sure that my heart stopped in my chest when I met the whiskey colored eyes of an angel. Her long, midnight black hair was pulled back in a ponytail. Her brown-amber eyes were huge in her beautiful face. She had plump lips that were almost bee stung and a nose that was tipped at the end. The angel was tall, her waist long and slender, but she had curves that made my body ache to hold her against me.

This angel was young; I would say no more than twenty-one…Layla introduced the angel. “Lana, this is Jesse and that’s Drake. Guys, this is my seventeen year old sister, Lana.”

Seventeen. Seventeen. SEVENTEEN!


The number bounced around in my already throbbing head, and I thought I was going to go mad from it. No! Not seventeen. She had to be older. I couldn’t be attracted in a seventeen year old girl.

“It’s nice to meet you, Lana,” Jesse said as he stared at the angel.

I was fascinated by the pretty pink that flooded her cheeks. “Yeah, you too,” she murmured and glanced at her sister. “Layla, can you help me with something in the bathroom?”

The sisters left us alone in the living room, and Jesse dropped down on the sofa beside of me. “Dude, you look pale.”

I wasn’t surprised. I think I had actually felt the color drain from my face when Layla had said the word seventeen. I felt sick to my stomach for an entirely different reason than the ones that I had woken up to.

Lana’s POV:

Sometime much, much later, my tears finally started to dry and the cold that had numbed me started to thaw enough to make me realize that I should be mad. I was in love with Drake, and after Friday night, I was sure that he was in love with me too, or that he at least cared about me as more than a friend… Now, with him fucking some other girl in his hotel room, unconcerned that I would hear him, I knew that I had been wrong.

All I would ever be to him was his friend, and I would have to accept that. But there was no way I could carry on the way we had been the last few months. I wasn’t that good of an actress. I sucked at pretending, especially when my feelings were involved. And they didn’t get any more involved than they were right now.

It would kill me to have to see him day after day, knowing that he had gone from lying in bed with me one night to screwing some other chick the next. Maybe that was how it worked in the rocker world—okay, so I knew that that was how it worked in the rocker world, but I couldn’t deal with that kind of messed up shit.

As the night dragged on, I realized what I had to do. It was going to be hard. It meant doing things I had promised never to do, but sometimes you had to do what was best for you, not what was best for someone else.
