TGIF Today for my flashback Friday review I am bringing you a book narrated by the magnificent Joe Arden, Who we were lucky enough to get an interview with… The interview was posted on the blog earlier today and I sure hope you had the opportunity to read it, it was quite divine😍

Cake by J. Bengtsson

5 Scrumptious Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


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.

When outspoken, vivacious college student Casey Caldwell was paired with the famously reserved rockstar 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 reclusive 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.

Yet 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?


I devoured this book just as I would a piece of cake….
Casey was such a fabulous character, she reminded me a little bit of a younger me… always having a little too much to say…. Jake was just a good guy… with a very tragic past, a lot to overcome….

Even though a few things didn’t quite ring true with me( I just can’t imagine a huge rockstar not having more security) this was a very real love story…. I also really appreciated that both characters had a very strong family presence throughout the book….. definitely looking forward to more books from this author, in fact I’ve already started the second book in the series….

PS: the second book as fabulous as well!

🎧🎧🎧5 Smoking Stars for the narration in this book! Wonderful job done by both Joe Arden and Andi Arndt as always!
