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?

Cake: A Love Story by J. Bengtsson was an emotional and touching story about a lost and broken Rockstar and the girl who changed his life. But their journey was full of struggles and obstacles
Jake McKallister was Rockstar that was barely surviving. He lived through unspeakable events when he was young that changed his future drastically. Music was an outlet that helped him and eventually led to his success. But his past weighed on him. He was not your typical Rockstar. He was quiet, reserved and reclusive.
Casey Caldwell was such a feisty, lively and outgoing person. She loved life and always had a happy outlook. I absolutely loved Casey. She was a very likable character.
Jake and Casey could not be any more opposites then two people could be. Jake had suffered such a tragic crime when he was younger that was public knowledge. Casey could not carry a tune if her life depending on it. But somehow, they connected when they met at a friend’s wedding. But could Jake let someone into his life when he was used to being alone?
Cake: A Love Story was emotional and heart-wrenching. It touches on some very difficult issues, but their story was beautiful and touching as well. I loved seeing these two come together and open up with each other.

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.
