The Rocker Who Hates Me by Terri Anne Browning
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Liam Bryant fell for the beautiful little Italian rocker the moment she crashed into his life. But, he was a junkie and all he ever did was hurt the people who cared about him. So, the only thing he could do was push her away. He realizes no matter how much he tries, he can’t fight the feelings he has for her. He gives in and makes her his, only to lose her repeatedly.
Gabriella Moretti couldn’t help but fall for Liam Bryant the sexy as sinner rocker from Other World. He was a lost soul but something in his eyes and his smile when he showed it told her there was so much more to Liam then he let the world see. She fell for him fast and hard, too bad he didn’t want her like she wanted him. One day he confessed his feelings and Gabriella is elated but her happiness comes to a crashing end when the man she loves lies to her putting her beloved nephew in danger. Heartbroken she cuts him loose leaving them both shattered and alone.
Gabriella figures out too late that she should fight for the man she loves. Now she’s decided to get the man she loves back no matter what it takes she will fight for them even if she is the only one fighting.
I remember reading Reckless with their Hearts, which featured Alexis and Jared by Terri Anne Browning. Alexis had a cousin Gabriella. Gabriella Moretti was the nasty rocker who tried to break up Nik and Emmie from the Rocker Series. So of course, I had an instant dislike for her, but as I read Gabriella and Alexis’ sisterly relationship, I began to see Gabriella through Alexis’ eyes.
Gabriella is a tough chick who has a hard time showing her vulnerability. Except when it comes to one hot rocker Liam Bryant, he holds her heart in his hands and can crush it so easily. Sadly, Gabriella and Liam hurt each other continuously throughout the Rocker Series. I always felt there was so much more to their story, and I was right.
Gabriella is a miss-understood girl whose gruff attitude comes off as bitchy. She risks her life to save her archenemies child and now she is fighting for her life.
Liam pushed Gabriella out of his life more than once but now when he faces the possibly of losing her for good her knows he wants nothing more than to keep her forever.
Gabriella and Liam’s story was the best one of the Rocker Series yet as far as this reader is concerned. I could not put it down. A love story filled with angst, lust, desire, and a love that can’t be broken. Their love was tumultuous, filled with regret and broken promises. Yet it was never broken no matter how much they tried to push each other way.
Told in alternating POV’s from the two main characters the story flowed really well. I loved how the author went back and forth between past and present.
Giving us the back-story of how Gabriella and Liam first met and filling in the blanks from previous books that featured incidents between the couple that made me angry for Gabriella and broke my heart for both of them.
Gabriella and Liam are deep, real characters with real problems that threaten to tear them apart. When they finally come together, it’s explosive and thrilling yet sweet and tender at the same time. This couple’s love is undying even when they don’t know how the other really feels.
I loved how everyone rally's around Liam as he sits vigil by Gabriella's side while she fights for her life. These character's are family and they hold each other up its one of the things I love about the series the most.
Terri Anne Browning is one of my favorite authors, the Rocker Series is one of my favorites, and this book did not disappoint. A must read for fans of the series, and as always I highly recommend the entire series. I will be moving on to The Rocker Who Betrayed Me next Zander and Annabelle’s story.
