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 Rocker Who Needs Me is the third book in this series, and I’m gonna be honest- since I got about half way through book 2, I was DYING for this one. Forbidden love, damaged male lead, likable heroine- I could not wait! I was happy to get Drake and Lana’s story. There are a few things I think could have been done differently to make it a 5 star read for me, but overall I still enjoyed it very much.

When Lana and Drake first meet, sparks fly. There is a huge problem though. Lana is Layla’s

Um, the first two sentences are these:

Acknowledgement I want to thank my husband for putting up with me while I right this series. He is stuck with all the house cleaning and laundry while I sort through these rocker’s lives.

Chapter 8: The Rocker That Needs Me
Drake's POV

This week had sucked without her. There was no reason to smile when she wasn’t around. No peace to be found when I didn’t have her close. Before I passed out every night it was with her name on my lips. When I woke every morning, just before the mem

Overall this was a enjoyable read. I didn't read the first two books in the series, so I had no problems with the fact that a lot of stuff from the first books was repeated in this one.

The heroine is 17 en the hero 31, when they first meet, so there is a pretty big age difference, which didn't bother me and nothing happens between them until she is 18.
I did however feel that this book had a lot of telling instead of showing. I kept wishing for more dialogue.

Also the hero pulls some major shit

What can I say except Terri Anne Browning has done it again! Wow! The Rocker That Needs Me is truly amazing! It's the third in the series and I do suggest reading them in order, as the timeframes overlap and you would be confused otherwise, in my opinion. This series has been one of the most fun, hot and just amazing series I've read this year and TRTNM absolutely keeps that going. I was dying to know Drake's story and I from page one (or screen one, since I'm on a Kindle) I was hooked! I read t ...more

I think i like this one the best so far from this series. I know Drake story is much darker and much melancholic than the other characters. So far i have read 3 of this series.

Again it is very cheesy romance. Drake is damage character fighting his demon. And Lana is a typical likeable heroine who has big heart. However i can not help feeling that Drake did take advantage of her.

In summary, i enjoy the story.

I was so excited upon finding out that this book was already available for purchase that I immediately downloaded it and proceeded to read it. I've been so looking forward to this book ever since we got a sneak peak of Drake and Lana's budding romance in the previous book.

It was an enjoyable and quick read...quick being the operative, which in some cases is the major negative aspect of this book for me. It seems some parts are too rushed and I wish we got to explore the beginnings of Drake and L

Felt too much like the first 2 books in series.......

This was just an ok read for me. Mostly because the whole time I was reading this it just had that "I've read this book before" feel to it. Nothing about this seemed original to me, and the plot was just way to similar to the first 2 books in this series.

* We got some updates on where characters from books 1 and 2 are in their lives
* I liked the emotional aspects of Drakes character. You felt his pain and vulnerabilities as you read

Spoilers ahead......

I had really really high hopes for this one. I LOVED Drake. But the way the author took this story really pissed me off. I could have forgiven Drake when he drunkenly took Lana's virginity and forgot about it and then banged some chick the next night with Lana over hearing. This I could have gotten past because he had a disease and after he found out how he hurt Lana he went to rehab for his alcoholism. That made me respect him. But then, the author had him relapse and then p

The Rocker Who Needs Me was the third book in the Rocker series by Terri Anne Browning.

Drake Stevenson was a guitarist in the insanely famous rock band Demon’s Wings. We knew he had major demons which caused him to drink himself into a stupor every night just to avoid the nightmares. Browning unveiled his demons in the Rocker Who Needs Me while weaving a long tale of heartbreak and suffering. And it was heartbreaking at times.

Lana Daniels was primarily raised by her older sister, Layla (book two

I don't believe that even in this century anyone can still believe this pathetic excuse that "I was drunk and I don't remember anything" . The author could at least be realistic in this regard or at least try to learn something about human physiology. But it would be an even better idea if she just stopped writing that pile of shit that only embarrasses herself and all other women. And if someone have a relationship with a man like that?

This is so sad. I like the first 2 books but this one is just so damn boring! Too much repetitions from the previous book.
The first 4 chapters are just the repetition from book 2 but it's in Lana and Drake POV.
This book is written in dual POV, but does that mean that the story should be the same but told from different POV of the characters??
I've read lots of books with dual POV but they weren't just the repetition, they were the continuation story.

I think my expectations were perhaps a little high for this one, although I really enjoyed it. Drake was a great character and I loved how much he loved Lana.

However, a few things about the story bothered me a little bit, namely (view spoiler)

What I love about each book in this series is that even though we have to wait for each book to come out the author always starts right back at the beginning which brings me up to speed again without having to re-read over the previous book..

Loved everything Drake!! Gut wrenching story behind him and why he has the nightmares, glad everything came right and he had his HEA with Angel!!

I really like the males in this series and I really liked Lana but eventually the women become annoying. First, enough about Emmie, she is horrible with Nik. She is abusive and disrespectful to him. She is full of herself, I know the guys took her in but she's not their manager and she doesn't contribute to the band so why is she considered like the one that makes all the choices and producers fear. I really liked Lana but she seemed different and I did not like it. I like Drake but he seemed we ...more

Over all I enjoyed the book however I believe the synopsis was a bit misleading. Lana's age was an issue for Drake for like 2 seconds. The true issue was his drinking and that bad decisions he made while drinking. I liked Drake although I wasn't very impressed with his attitude toward his one-night stand the next day. Not much guilt and no worry that he was overheard? Also, the identity of Lana's dad wasn't really developed very well. The story easily could have done without. ...more

Tease me with a rocker story and there’s no turning back. I was drawn by the title, cover, and a captivating book blurb. Up front I’ll admit that I haven’t read any of the previous books in this series. Starting in the middle of a new series is very unlike me. Well, anyway, I one-clicked and began rocking to the music between Lana and Drake. And it didn’t take too long until I realized exactly why it’s a must to start at the beginning of a series. I know I missed a ton of back story and characte ...more

I have to say while I loved the 1st two in this series, this was a let-down. Since Lana is Layla sister we had a lot of her in book #2. That said the 1st 30+% of this book was a reiteration of scenes in book 2. Then throw in the fact that we would get Lana's POV and then Drake's which was really only a repeat of the actions of the chapter before and this book was slow and repetitive.

That said the story, I liked it a lot. I like the characters, the secondaries. The few simple twist within.

This book is disturbing on so many levels.

Our "heroine" Lana is a SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD SCHOOL GIRL. Our "Hero" Drake is a THIRTY-ONE YEAR OLD ALCOHOLIC ROCKER. Right away any relationship between these two people is just plain gross.

They connect literally the second they see each other, an insta-lust moment that is gag inducing. He "tries" to fight his attraction to her by telling himself she's too young and he should stay away from her. That lasts less than a minute. Next thing you know they're

For the third book in The Rocker series I must say I was probably looking forward to it more than I did the second book The Rocker that Savors Me (Jesse & Layla’s story). I fell in love with Drake & Lana from The Rocker that Savors Me and was stalking the release date. So why do I feel a little…disappointed, not even sure if that is the right word?

The Rocker That Needs Me is Drake's book. Drake Stevenson of the Demon Wings band is the one that is scarred and has a drinking problem and has a huge love crush on the sister of the hired housekeeper who in the previous book is 17 to his 31 years of age. Makes for and interesting plot. Along with the other characters from the books (Nik, Emmie, Jessie, Layla, Lucy, Shane and Axton [not part of this band]) it was good to get to see them again in this book. SLIGHT SPOILERS AHEAD
