My Thoughts

As far as bad boy Rockstar meet down-home good girl who saves him from himself books go...
Author, J. Bengtsson's Like The Wind is a bit confusing.

The reason?

Well there is plenty of Rockstar, plenty of money, and plenty of ...well glamour.
There is a decided lack of bad boy or anything that slightly resembles a bad boy.
Or for that matter an adult, mid-20-something, a person who should be allowed to vote. Did I fail to mention adult?

To his credit, however. What we did get in Bodhie, was a sweet, sheltered and very sensitive young man. Who had been lied to, manipulated, and used.  And who was now figuring out not only who he was. But also who he wasn't.

As for Breeze.
As far as leading ladies go she was...
Cute, understanding, altruistic, down to earth, convenient, etc...etc...etc... ad nauseam.
In short, all of the things that are lost Rockstar needed to make him realize that he was, is, and would always be, the man.
(i.e. Someone's knight in shining armor just as himself. Not Rockstar Bodhie.)
What Breeze does do very well however is, provide the body with both the chance to and the reason to be a grown-up.

The rest of the story is spent mostly having one's heartstrings to death. As both the reader and Bodhie come to learn the true depth of his tragic past.
Involving the mysterious woman claiming to be his mother.
As well as an even deeper secret involving his father.

To tell the truth. The book does have the wherewithal to stand on those two plot twists alone. But the love story offers just the right amount of "happily ever..." to round things out quite nicely.
This book seems to make a concerted effort to be that sweeter than cherry pie romance.
Even managing to keep the love scenes mild and considerably more brief than this reviewer has seen in quite some time.
This is most definitely a romance that can be read in public.


A professional stay-at-home-mom for twenty-one years, Jill started her writing career in 2016 after reading a really bad rockstar romance. Although she had no previous writing experience and no desire to become an author, Jill was convinced she could write a better story.
 And so began Cake: A Love Story.

 She wrote the novel for fun and added every single thing she’d ever wanted to read in a romance. Embarrassed by her newfound hobby, Jill kept her writing a secret from her family. When the story was complete, she turned to Amazon to get the feedback she desired. Not thinking the book would ever sell, Jill planned to pull Cake off Amazon once it got a review or two but that never happened because, within a week of its release, Cake began to soar up the bestseller charts.

 Not only was Jill shocked by Cake’s success but now she had a whole new burgeoning career on her hands…and some explaining to do. Needless to say, the news of Jill’s secret book bay came as a complete shock to her husband and three children. Jill is now a full-time writer.
