The Rockers’ Babies (#6) – Terri Anne Browning

18171065Synopsis

~Emmie~

After the nightmares of our childhoods my guys and I have finally found the happiness we deserve. Shane is getting married, Drake and Jesse are going to be fathers, and I’m making my own career with Nik’s encouragement. It’s taken a lifetime, but finally we have moved on…

I should have known better than to think life was just going to be simple from here on out. I knew from firsthand experience that right when you get comfortable and content those bitches Fate throw a curve ball into the mix. I wasn’t expecting the possible tragedy that we are faced with. I’m the strong one, the one that has to help the rest of them through the tough times, but I don’t know how strong I can be for them through this…

My Review

I’ve been with Demon’s Wings from the very start. From the first book, where I became hooked on Emmie and Nik’s story to the last book where we see all the band members loved up and their significant others pregnant or with a child already. I cannot tell you enough times my love for this series. Each book gets better and better and my love for all the characters overflow in each book too, the more we get to know them – (although I have to say Drake is still my fav).

Terri Anne has created an amazing series, a loving group of characters and an even more outstanding backgrounds for each band member and each girlfriend/wife – despite the fact that the band members and Emmie all grew up together, they all had different backgrounds to one another but yet they are brothers in every sense of the word. They will do anything for each other and will be there at the drop of a hat, especially for Emmie, whom they have protected since she was a little girl.

If you have read the books or just read my reviews, you will know that each member has overcome their past, with the help of each other and their girlfriends/wives. They have found The One and your heart becomes so proud of them for struggling yet overcoming their past, for finding love and not letting it go. And now we are on the sixth and final book for Demon’s Wings it made my heart tingle knowing how happy each member are, to see them come so far in their lives over the past years and to see them content with their love and where they are up to.

The Rockers’ Babies is just that. We see Lana and Layla pregnant, in which we saw in The Rocker That Needs Me (Lana and Drake’s book), we see Shane and Harper blissfully happy and engaged, we see Nik and Emmie and Mia all cute and Jesse and Layla and Lucy one happy family with 2 more on the way. And then we have Axton (from OtherWorld) pinning for Dallas and what he stupidly lost.

I loved that Terri had alternative POV’s from each character so we were kept up-to-date on how they were feeling, how their lives were going especially when a dramatic moment occurs. When this certain storyline was mentioned, I knew something was going to happen. My heart was pounding, I was turning every page hoping to God nothing would happen, and every little twist and turn proved it couldn’t be stopped. Dear gods, I was on tenterhooks throughout this part of the book!

I teared up a lot during this book. From happy tears to sad tears, you really go through the motions and not everything is plain sailing, oh no. As i’ve mentioned above, there are certain sub-storylines with each couple that will tear your heart apart, but it makes them stronger together and alone and you know that they can get through anything with their close-knit family around them.

Gods, I adore this series and Terri so much. I am so glad I came across this series back last year and I am so happy to have found a series that has a special place in my heart. Terri’s writing has gone from strength to strength throughout the series, she has put some much effort into each member’s book and I cannot wait for Axton and the OtherWorld member’s books now.

But I hope that the gang are still mentioned, I’d love to see where they are in their lives.

BOOK TOUR: The Rocker That Holds Her (#5) – Terri Anne Browning

18171049Synopsis

I had big dreams of how I wanted my life. Becoming a rock star was all I wanted. It would solve so many of my problems. With the money that I would make I was going to take care of my mom, get her out of the hell hole we had been living in all my life. Having your dreams come true isn’t something that many people get to accomplish in life. I did, and I loved it.

For about a minute…

It’s funny how when you think you have everything you could possible every want, your dreams change. Mine did without my even realizing it. Then I opened my eyes and saw that everything I ever wanted was standing in front of me.

From the first day I set eyes on Emmie she became a part of me. The guys and I spent years watching over her, caring for her… Loving her. Then without my realizing it my love for her changed. I found myself aching for her, wanting her in a way that a guy like me had no right to want her. My love and need for Emmie became an all-consuming ache that I was helpless to fight against.

Would she ever open those big green eyes and see me as anything but a friend?

My Review

Have I mentioned how much I love this series? I’m pretty sure you are fed up with me expressing my love for this series but I don’t care because you ALL need to get these books on your kindle, read about the brilliant band that is Demon’s Wings, about their childhoods, their struggles, their present, their love for Emmie and of course, finding the love of their lives.

The Rocker That Holds Her is all 4 books, plus extra from Nik’s POV. For those of you who have read the series, Nik has known Emmie since she was 5 and he was 15. WE saw him and his band brothers take care of her when her mother beat her and they have always been there for her, even when they got their big break and were off touring America. When Emmie’s mum dies, they fight to get her to live with them and that is when feelings begin to churn for Nik. They haven’t seen Emmie in around 18 months and now she is in her late teens she has grown up to become a beautiful woman and Nik cant get his head around liking her…he feels dirty and perverted but he cant help being in love with her.

He kept his feelings inside, drank to numb the pain of wanting her but not being able to have her and we see all this from his view point, as well as when he actually gets her for himself…FINALLY 🙂

We see the first time he met Emmie was she was just a little kid. We see him protect her, patch her up and make sure that nothing hurts her and if it is, he is always there for her. Nik’s childhood wasn’t great and after his parents died his aunt came and took him in. He loves his aunt like she is his mother and when he became famous, he still looked after her from afar. Nik is a gentle guy, but he is also protective, has a jealous streak but he loves with everything!

We see Nik torment himself over his feelings with Emmie. While he watches his band brothers with her, especially Jesse, he feels jealous that he;s not the one holding her hand, or cuddling her and falling asleep with her. But despite the jealousy, he tries to deny his attraction to her, deeming it wrong in his eyes for loving someone 10 years younger than him. He tried to sleep with girls to take away the pain but when that didn’t happen, he had to give in and try to keep his feelings in, and act normal around Emmie, as normal as he could when all he wanted was to kiss her.

We finally see him give in to his feelings at a pivotal point (which we see in The Rocker That Holds Me) after hurting over thinking Jesse was the babies father and the jealousy he feels over Axton Cage- another rockstar they are close with – as he and Emmie are best friends. I think this tipped him over the edge and made him see if he didn’t tell her his feelings he would lose her to another and that would kill him badly.

I love how Terri-Anne can just sink into writing in a guys POV. All the books and the band members speak their own and you can clearly distinguish who is talking – and with the girls too. I love how Terri-Anne writes and I am slightly obsessed with these books. I am so glad we got to dip into Nik’s head…he really has a lot of things to show and to say and we really see that he loves Emmie with everything, that he has wasted enough time not telling her and being with her that now he has her, he will do whatever he can to make her happy for the rest of their lives.

Of course, relationships are never easy, and Emmie and Nik go through some turbulence but they always work it out and it makes them stronger as a couple after it. You see their connection, their chemistry and if anybody came between them, we know Emmie would cut a bitch. Watch out Gabi 😉

You really do need to take a chance on this series, because they are written to pure brilliance. Terri-Anne develops the characters and you fall in love with them. She writes steamy sex scenes which connects the characters even more. We see the childhoods, the sorrow they have been through but then we see them all fall in love, know that the girls are the ones for them and we see them grow, and blossom together and alone. You will fall in love with Terri-Anne, the series and the characters – they will stay with you.

I can’t wait to read The Rocker’s Babies and Axton’s book The Rocker That Wants Me.

About Terri Anne

Hated school and reading until her aunt handed over her first romance novel at the age of twelve, as crazy aunts tend to do. It gave her a passion for the written word that has only increased over the years. At sixteen she started writing her own novellas, forcing her sister to be her one woman fan club. Now she has a few more fans and a lot more passion for writing. Reese: A Safe Haven Novella was her first Indie published book. The Rocker That Holds Me changed the tables and kicked off The Rocker… series featuring the sinfully delicious members of Demon’s Wings. Terri Anne lives just outside of Birmingham, AL with her husband and three children.

BOOK TOUR: The Rocker That Loves Me (#4) – Terri Anne Browning

TRTLM banner

Today on The Rocker That Loves Me blog tour is The Book Lovers review!

5 / 5 stars for Shane and Harper!!

————————————————————————————-

18171039Synopsis

I was the fun loving, easy going, different girl—okay, different girls every night—Demon. One look into a pair of violet eyes and all of that changed. She doesn’t even realize how beautiful she is and that makes me want her even more. Realizing that she is just as damaged as I am breaks my heart. Harper is a part of me, my other half. If only she would open her incredible eyes and see how I feel…

The Beauty… I knew that I wasn’t Shane Stevenson’s type. Hot rockers don’t go for plain girls like me. Years of my mother telling me just how unbeautiful I am has assured me of that. I have nothing to offer a guy that is so used to hot girls drooling over him. So why is he always there when I turn around? And why does it feel like little needles piercing my heart at the mere thought of him with someone else?

My Review

“Don’t you know by now that you are home, baby?”

I’m sure by now you know my love of The Rocker series by Terri Anne Browning. Rockers with tormented pasts whom find the love of their lives. Just my kind of books and I wait impatiently for the next book in the series every time another book comes out! I ALWAYS need my fix of Demon’s Wings.

The Rocker That Loves Me is the fourth book in the series and by no means any less important or sexy that the other three. HELL NO!!

I love the fact that Terri writes a prologue at the beginning on the books – a chance to see each band member (In their own book) as a teenager growing up so we get a little about what they all went through and how, of course, they all stuck together. They are not just a band, but a family, a very close family who will do absolutely anything for each other, as they know the ins and outs of each other’s pasts. They will fight, love and protect one another, especially Emmie.

In The Rocker That Needs Me we find out more about Shane. He’s Drakes brother and both of they have really gone through the same thing in the past, yet they deal with it different. Drake drinks himself into a stupor and Shane parties and sleeps around every night. But he sees the love that his bandmates have and he wants it. He tries to cut down the girls and in doing so takes up running. From The Rocker That Needs Me, he runs a lot.

The Rocker That Loves Me starts in New York, where Shane and Drake are. Shane met Harper in TRTNL and they strike up a friendship, but now Shane wants me. He’s hooked from the get-go and is convinced to get her into bed which is when I did get annoyed at Shane for the first few pages when he just wanted Harper to ‘play’ with. That really pissed me off but then he found out she was a virgin and he took her first kiss and he just couldn’t do it to her, he couldn’t be with her because of his ‘tainted past’ but Shane just couldn’t stay away.

She was all he wanted and he was determined to make her his. He fell for her pretty fast and he just didn’t understand why she didn’t think she was beautiful, so he made it his mission to make her see just how much she meant to him. He was protective and loving and caring and despite one little mishap from him, his intentions were always good and he definitely made up for them – god my heart broke at one scene over him and I just wanted to hug him and love him. I’m glad Harper forgave him.

Harper had this affect over him and it was lush to see Shane just want someone to love, like his band brothers, he really did deserve it. They have both never really experienced love and it was so nice to see them both fall into each other and the epilogue, ohh I cried it was that sweet.

I loved Harper. We first meet her in The Rocker That Needs Me and she is Lana’s friend and roommate. She’s reserved but she can bite hard if you fuck around with her; she’s a photographer and just a smidge insecure…okay a lot, but that is due to her mother and step sister belittling her when she was growing up. She believes she’s not pretty, sexy or beautiful enough for any guys to like her and she thinks it’s a joke when she gets called beautiful. She doesn’t believe it.  Then Shane comes along and he calls her ‘beautiful’ at every chance, but she just thinks he lying and doesn’t believe him.  She’s never been kissed, she’s a virgin and the complete opposite to Shane. She wants the love that Ellie and Carl had in Up (I loved the reference).

There is something about Shane but she’s adamant to be friends with him but it’s becoming too hard. IT was actually great to watch Harper grow. Grow into herself and grow in confidence too. Confidence that obviously came from Shane, which in turn made her stand up to her mother. And the confidence to explore her sexuality. Damn girl! I felt so proud of her throughout her journey and how she FINALLY believed in herself and believed that Shane loved her so much and would never leave her – after all, their love was an Ellie and Carl kind.

Harper and Shane had amazing chemistry. That was clear to see in The Rocker That Needs Me and by god, it was extraaaaa in The Rocker That Loves Me. They say opposite attract and with this couple, it truly does. They both had a journey to take, they both helped one another out and they grew stronger together and it was clear to see how much they cared and how much they loved one another. Everything they did – whether it was a bad decision (despite the fact they thought they were doing it for the greater good) or a good one – they got through it. The sex only intensified the chemistry and Harper helped Shane with his sex fear and Shane opened Harper up sexually. I just love these two!!

As with the other books, we get to a chapter from Emmie and I LOVE that girl. She’s got spunk that one!! We also see bits of the band and their respective girls and of course, Lana and Harpers flatmates. I also love how the stories from the past books integrate and overlap so it’s a continuation of their stories.

Seriously read this series, I cannot recommend it enough. From book one I have been religiously loving these rockers through everything. Take a chance on these books because you will most definitely fall in love with each and every one of the band members and the girls as well as loving Terri Anne too!

Bring on The Rocker That Holds Her and The Rocker’ Babies (And then we get Axton’s story WATWATTTTT!)
