-A reclusive rock star going through the motions-

Jake McKallister might have been a rock star, but he was no ordinary one. Surviving an unspeakable crime as a young teen had shaped him into a guarded workaholic, and he now lived his life trying to forget. If it hadn’t been for music and the redemption he found through it, he might not have survived. Career success came easily for him. Personal connections did not.

-A vivacious college student embracing life-

When outspoken and fun-loving Casey Caldwell was paired with the famously reserved musician for a friend’s wedding, she was prepared for the worst. What could they possibly have in common? She was a bubbly talker; he was a media-shy loner. His life was filled with music; she couldn’t carry a tune. She’d enjoyed a happy childhood; his was a well-publicized nightmare.

-Their worlds are about to collide-

Despite their obvious differences, Jake and Casey found each other, and her light balanced out his darkness. Would their love be strong enough to survive the weight of his tragic past?

Can over 6,529 Ratings and 800 Reviews on Goodreads plus the 1,756 reviews on Amazon raving about a book can’t be wrong, can they? They weren’t wrong. This book was great! I was surprised to see the uber famous rock star wasn’t a “typical” rock star. It was odd to not have any of the trappings that you’d think follows such a title entitles.  I think more than anything I was shocked there was no bodyguard posy following him around. That’s the only thing for me that didn’t sit well, didn’t ring true. Us women can be crazy over our favorite rock stars. 

Jake and Casey meet at his brother’s wedding and are paired up together. Jake has a particular issue in social interactions… he isn’t exactly comfortable with people and groups… irony given his career choice. Jake is a broken man. While he has all the money and fame people want he has a tragic past and it’s wholly affected in him. Casey is just what he needs… fun, with this quirkiness that helped his heart, his soul. 

I enjoyed my first novel by J. Bengtsson. The writing is smooth and concise. I loved the progression of the relationship. It wasn’t all smooth sailing for Jake and Casey. They have their problems. I was really happy that there was some super funny parts in this book and kept it fun and upbeat. Their first meeting though, oh man, they had me rolling in laughter.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

Jake and Casey are BACK!

Cake Cover Front

You thought their story was over… but a love like theirs has no end.

Fate doesn’t own Jake McKallister. At least that’s what he tells himself. Life is better than ever. He’s at the top of his game, performing to sold-out crowds the world over.

He has his health and a solid, fun-loving family to keep him grounded.

And he got the girl - the beautiful, quirky girl he’s just made his wife.

Yes, life is good. If only fate would stop screaming in his ear.

Lucky is the word to best describe Casey McKallister. Life is not just great… it’s amazing.

She has an awesome, devoted support system, a nerd’s dream job at a prestigious accounting firm, and, best of all, she’s married to the hottest rock star to ever roam the earth.

Yes, life is perfect… until it comes crashing down around her.

They say love concurs all. That’s what Jake and Casey are counting on.
