I've always loved Zander Brockman in some shape or form. The boy who lived next door for the first seventeen years of my life has been my best friend, my confidant, my first crush, and my first love. I trusted him with my life and my heart. When he smiled at me I knew everything was going to be okay...

Until it wasn't.

I haven't seen that girl in seventeen years, and I've missed her every damn day. I knew I wasn't good enough for her, so the night before I left with my bandbrothers for California, I stole a night with her. I lived off those memories. There hasn't been a day that has gone by that I haven't wanted to talk to her just one more time, but I knew she deserved a better man than me. Now, after seeing her again, I realize that I didn't care if she should have a better man. My feelings were still as strong as they have ever been for her. I wanted to be with her...

But she hated the very sight of me.

This is my least favorite book in the series. The book took us to the Zander and Anna’s past, when they were kids and promises were made and later broken. We got to know more about Noah but he has been so far removed from the story lines most will have to go back to the beginning and find where he was mentioned. Sadly, most of the book was about the past and the history they have then all of the sudden it is 17 years later and BANG they are together. Wait just one flipping second….17 years and she didn’t move on because of a “broken” promise? Pathetic isn’t the word that came to my mind and please tell me that during the 17 years they were apart how they avoided each other since she works in the music industry too? Yes I read that she avoided the awards ceremony’s he was at but there are times last minute changes are made besides HE would have known she was around. Now on to Zander….this guy is so self-absorbed with his OCD that he left the girl he loves and totally ignored her but once he sees her in a hospital room BAM he loves her? With all of this said, the secrets Anna has and the burden she carries is gut wrenching and for those scenes alone I commend the author ~ they are nearly predictable but the choice that HAD to be made was devastating.

It started out promising but the heroine's constant helplessness and crying became tedious and irritating. The hero was also ridiculous in his self hatred that he loved someone so much but completely abandoned her. The reunion 17 years later was also irritating. I quit reading it half way through and sorry I paid good money for this one.

Terri Anne Browning scores again! You must read the entire series from the beginning to appreciated how good the stories are. Love Emmie & the Rockers relationship/family in all the series. I think the series should be made into a MOVIE! I hope Terri Anne Browning will continue the series with the children of the "Rockers"! Good story, you won't be disappointed.

Very Disappointed In This One!! I was anxiously awaiting Zander and Annabelle's story after the set up in The Rocker Who Hates Me, so when it released I dived right into it, and because I absolutely love this series. However, I am sad to say that I was left disappointed in this one. It honestly hurts me to say that, because I actually loved the premise of the story, but I felt like the story stayed too much in the past and then the present was rushed with a quick resolution to the issues that Zander and Annabelle faced. My heart hurt for all that Annabelle had gone through but some of it just didn't make sense to me, esp. since Annabelle and Zander were basically moving in the same musical circles. And I felt like Zander had a personality transplant in this one. I felt like the Zander in this story was not the Zander that I had met previously in all the other Rocker books, although I loved the fact that Terri Anne Browning dealt with the issue of OCD in this one, and the fact that there is no rhyme or reason for why something must be done when you suffer with this disease. However, Zander's reasons for hurting Annabelle were absolutely ridiculous to me and made absolutely no sense, esp. not with all that they had been through. And personally, I felt like Zander got off way too easily for his actions. Zander was the only one in this book who was not taken to task for his actions, but the rest of his band mates and friends were, which really bothered me. And Zander's response to it all really did not sit right with me. Not to mention the things that came out Mieke's mouth when addressing Zander's band mates were highly unacceptable to me. She is a 16 year old child. And I am truly left puzzled by the whole notion that the members of OtherWorld are not as close as the members of Demon's Wings when just like the guys in Demon's Wings these guys grew up together and are each other's best friends...Axton was the only real outsider in the group, the rest of them started the band together and even went to school together. Very confused by that notion. Although I had issues with this story, I absolutely love this series and I will be reading the next installment when it releases, because the series is very entertaining and very well written...not to mention I am extremely attached to these characters.

I absolutely love this author, so this was a bit of a disappointment. Both lead characters were so weak, and without spoiling the story, I just couldn't believe it. Great series, just not one of her best.

Boy and girl fall in love at a young age. Boy leaves young girl. Girl becomes a beautiful woman and sees the man the boy as become. So we have breakup, makeup, pregnancy and then marriage in almost all the books. These men and women are so much smarter then that.

Terri you are awesome! I loved the whole storyline, especially the details of their past together and why Zander is the way he is. I laughed and I cried. Well done!

I'm a fan of the Rocker series and have liked all the books although I think I liked this the least. Too much time was spent in the past and it seemed like the present story was rushed and pretty predictable. Also sorry that this series is coming to an end. Was hoping with the new bands introduced in the past few books there would be more books.

Annabelle and Zander started out as childhood best friends. One day they both saw each other in a very different light. Neither one of them realizing the others feelings had become more than friendship. Until one day, they kissed and from there the relationship between these two young people transformed. At the same time, that Annabelle and Zander’s love for each other grew the popularity of Other World Zander’s band grew. They both feared once the band signed a record deal and went on tour they would be separated. That day came all too soon. Zander was excited his musical dreams were coming true. But at what expense? Annabelle couldn’t be happier for Zander but worried that she would lose him to the rock star life. They share a beautiful goodbye the night before he leaves; he promises to come back for her; he promises to love her forever. He breaks his promise the next day. Seventeen years later circumstances beyond their control bring them face to face with each other once again. Hate radiates off Annabelle in waves as she avoids Zander at all costs. He doesn’t care she hates him that time may have changed her love for him. He intends to win her back give up everything for a lifetime with the only girl who has ever held his heart. I cannot say enough about the series one of the best series I have ever read, and each book is unique and special in its own way. The Rocker Who Betrays Me quickly has become my favorite of them all. It was much more emotional and heart wrenching than any of Terri’s other books in the series though they all have their angst. Zander and Annabelle’s story had me sobbing for all they lost and all they found in each other again. From his OCD issues to her abusive home life, to the tragedies they faced. I was constantly in a state of turmoil. I loved it! The first fifty percent of the book goes back seventeen years ago when Annabelle, Zander, and the boys of Other World are just young people. It was awesome getting a glimpse of Devlin, Liam, Wroth, and Axton when they first started out. However, originally Annabelle’s brother Noah was the lead singer of the band. I loved Zander and Noah’s brotherly relationship. Noah and Annabelle’s bond was really special; he was her protector and her biggest support. The second half of the book takes us to the time Gabriella was in the hospital and Zander and Anna first meet up again. I despise spoilers so I won’t go in to too much detail here except to say there are surprises you will not believe. Zander’s life is thrown for a loop and his messed up mind doesn’t take it too well at first. When Annabelle tells Zander how her life fell apart when he broke his promises to her I couldn’t stop the tears. The tragedies that Annabelle went through over the years were too much for me to take as a reader. I had to put the book down and take a break to get my bearings, not for long though. I had to know how this couple ended up. The fact that their love was undying and stood the test of time and distance was so delightful to read. Terri Anne Browning once again does not disappoint. I actually believe this particular installment could be read as a standalone but honestly, I love this series and recommend it to anyone looking for smokin’ hot rockers and the badass chicks who love them. RECEIVED AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.

I have loved all of Ms. Browning's books, especially the Rocker series, but I did find Zander and Annabelle's story a little too inconsistent. With all of the background of friends, and musicians that they share, I find it hard to believe no one has seventeen years...Annabelle's situation and/or daughter to Zander. You just can't be that isolated or self engrossed while with the band and their families that someone hasn't mentioned this important fact to him! The time that they do reconcile is lovely, but to me, just way too far fetched in regards to the years apart. I did love the interactions with all the Demon's Wing and OtherWorld, and that was a big plus.

That was the first book by Terri Anne Browning I read so I wasn't sure what to expect. But as I love rocker romances, I was all up for checking it out. And let's just say that I would never regret picking it up because I found a new favorite author. The story is captivating and intriguing and it caught my attention from the first few pages. I simply loved the fast pace of the story. It was easy to read and at the same time so heartbreaking. Both characters are quite interesting individuals and make for a pretty intense story. Annabelle used to be a sweet girl after one too many heartbreaks, she trusts very few people in her life. And the one person she believed would never betray her, shattered her heart into million peaces on more than one occasion. Zander had his own reasons for leaving the one one person he loves more than anything in the world behind. But that cost him the little sanity he had left. But 17 years later he finds out that he lost much more than that. This is a story of second chances and how two people meant to be together, finally find their HEA. I loved every word of this book and I am definitely recommending it. But be prepared! You are going to shed quite a few tears. I can honestly say that I will be definitely checking the other books in the series as I was quite intrigued by the other characters and I would love to get to know them better. This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.
