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…
Wow!! This is the third book in Terri Anne Browning’s The Rocker Series and I just loved it. Often with books as part of a series and especially one that is going to have as many books in it as this one you can hit a lull around the middle. Did that happen in this case? Hell NO. I think so far this has been my favourite book of the series.
Drake Stevenson is just so complex, we got an inkling of why in the earlier books but we had no idea of the full extent as to what he went through as a child. The only solace he seems to get from it is at the bottom of a bottle of Jack Daniels. It isn’t really though, all it does is to make him pass out. Everyone is so worried about him, especially Shane. He knows if his brother doesn’t find some peace that the darkness that haunts him is going to kill him.
When that peace turns up in the form of 17 yr old Lana, Drake is tortured. She’s too young, he can’t bring himself to do anything other than have a platonic relationship with her. She has feelings for him but will respect him. The two couldn’t be any closer. When Drake hurts her, really hurts her she decides that she needs to get away from him. If they are to have any chance at being friends she can’t watch him with other women. She packs up and moves to New York to go to college and Drake heads to rehab.
Months later Drake accepts a job on the judging panel of a TV Show that is going to have him living in New York. He needs to have Lana in his life, but can she put the past behind her to have him in hers?
I really am loving all these rock star books and this series is no different. I am glad I had to start at the start and was able to read the three of them back to back, i’m only sorry that I now have to wait for Shane’s story cos I just know it is going to be epic! I read all three of these books in a day and a half. I had to but that’s besides the point. You just want more, all the time. I didn’t crave this much when I was pregnant!
Take a sneak peek for yourself what is going on inside Drake’s head!
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.
