Title: The Rocker That Needs Me
Author: Terri Anne Browning
Purchase Links: Amazon | B & N

Synopsis:
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…

                                 Excerpt

          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.

  1. Oh that excerpt is harsh! I don't think I'd be okay with a guy screwing another girl in the next room knowing I could hear! Lots and lots of groveling would have to happen and even then! Thanks for sharing ladies. :)

  2. I agree with Rachel! That's a cruel situation, and now I'm curious about what might happen next. Not sure that this would be my usual sort of read, though you do have my attention now. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hey Sam, yes it really is. One reason why I also chose this excerpt for this post is because I was also curious as to what will happen next. Thanks for dropping by the blog! :)
