Description

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 rock star 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?

This has to be one of the best books I've listen to in 2016. I wish it would have never ended! Awesome!

good listen - great narration

Any additional comments?

I really loved that there were 2 stories in one and they addressed a really horrible event in a manner that didnt downplay it. Worth a credit. There is a lot of humor in the romance which really makes the story believeable

Fantastic love story!

I can’t say enough great things about this audiobook story! The characters draw you in and the story is full of fun and angst. The love between two people can save them from their demons and make life beautiful again. Looking forward to more by this author. Narration was perfect.

Great Debut Novel

I don't write many reviews and I'm primarily a mystery reader, but I enjoyed this book so much I felt compelled to write a review to tell everyone how satisfying a read it was. It has everything - charming characters, witty dialog, interesting plot. I hope this is the first of many books from Ms. Bengtsson.

The narrators were excellent. Joe Arden is new to me, but I've always enjoyed Andi Arndt. Her work in the Stage Dive series is a must listen.

5 wonderfully amazing stars!!!@

***** I didn't know what to expect when I purchased this book, but when I saw that Andi Arndt and Joe Arden were the narrator's, I thought I'd try it. They are among some of my favorites.
I was BLOWN AWAY with this book!!! I LOVED every chapter, from the beginning. It ended up a roller coaster of emotions for me. I was laughing & smiling one minute, then before I knew it I was a heartbroken and crying. "CAKE" has now become my #1 of 2016!! I just can't put into enough words how wonderful this book was!! KUDDOS to the author!! I will definitely be looking out for more!

Loved It!

I enjoyed this story way more than I anticated. From all the reviews, I was expecting great, but got AWESOME! The positive reviews are spot on!

May have some spoilers:
First, Cake's well written, descriptive, has a natural flow, and great dialogue. The dialogue between the characters had more of a YA feel, but it was clever, witty, flirty, entertaining, and added to the overall appeal of the story.

Secondly, the author does an amazing job keeping the listener in suspense. It is revealed early there's a horrific past, and throughout the story, the author gives subtle hints towards the details. The dark past doesn't distract or overpower the sweet love story, but was enough to keep me in suspense, glued to my headphones and didn't leave me emotionally drained.

Lastly, while the character had an instant connect, the author did a fantastic job developing their chemistry, feelings and relationship. I love this wasn't just another "instalove" story, and you get to feel their relationship blossom.

Cake was a beautiful, captivating, and perfectly narrated. Well worth the time and credit!

cute story

definitely a love story * not really what I think of as a romance, they weren't faced with many trials other then his dark past. I enjoyed it * but it just sorta went exactly where you think it's going. no twists or turns that wowed me.

Writer and narrators did an awesome job

Great story. Best of all, that it was not bogged down with huge amounts of sex, expletives. It soared mainly because of the the writer and narrators did a excellent job!
