The Rocker That Needs Me by 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…


I am a complete sucker for a good story about rock bands!  This story revolves around a band called Demon's Angels and one of it's members Drake.  He has fallen hard for Lana, who he nicknames Angel.  Their relationship is love and lust at first sight for both of them.  The only thing holding them back is her age; she is only 17. 

The story tends to jump around quite frequently, often skipping ahead weeks or months at a time.  Drake and Angel continue to fight their feelings for one another.  He is fighting his feelings due to her young age and innocence. Angel is fighting her feelings due to Drake's sordid past and his current vices.  Can they stay away from each other when the pull toward each other is so strong?

"I felt like if I didn't see him everyday, or get a dozen texts from him, I would go insane with this all-consuming love inside my heart."
Their relationship has it's ups and downs and their pasts become more revealed in the storyline.  Are they truly meant for each other?  Will they let their hearts lead them where they are destined to be?
"As the night dragged on, I realized what I had to do.  It was going to be hard.  It meant doing things that I had promised never to do, but sometimes you had to do what was best or you, not what was best for someone else."
Overall, I did enjoy this book, but I felt that there were gaps in the flow of the storyline.  I feel that it would have been nice to have more exposure to the "rock" scene!!  - Kelly

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.
