About LIKE THE WIND
Prepare to laugh, cry, and fall in love with this enthralling new romance from J. Bengtsson!
When a letter from his supposedly deceased mother finds its way into his hands, life changes in an instant for international pop star Bodhi Beckett.
Reeling from the deception of those closest to him, Bodhi spirals out of control and is sent to a secluded mansion in the coastal mountains of Southern California for some rest and relaxation. But the retreat proves to be anything but relaxing when a raging wildfire sets the landscape around him ablaze.
While escaping the flames, Bodhi rescues Breeze, a quirky, pet-loving woman, and together the two fight their way to safety. In the aftermath of the fire, Bodhi and Breeze hit the road to uncover the truth about his family. What neither of them expected is to forge a powerful connection that will change their lives forever…but can it survive the real world, or will it disappear like the wind?
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
I’ve been a huge fan of J. Bengtsson’s Cake series, so I was excited to dive into this standalone book and see how it measures up to my beloved McKallisters. She did not disappoint!
There is so much to love about Bodhi and Breeze! Like The Wind was full of heart and hope, deceit and betrayal, love and loss and faith. These two characters come together in the most traumatic way: escaping a Southern California wildfire. At first sight, a former child star/boy band singer and a free-spirited hairdresser were the most unlikely couple, but Bodhi and Breeze just worked together so well. She grounds him in a way that he’s never experienced. Bodhi has led such a sheltered life and is so naïve in many ways. Breeze just opens up his world to the simple pleasures in life and for the first time, Bodhi feels like someone sees him for who he truly is.
But when his celebrity star begins to encroach on the little bubble they’ve created for themselves, will Bodhi lose the woman he suddenly can’t imagine living without to the wind?
Man, my heart bled for Bodhi. The way those in his life betrayed him was awful. It was done for the right reasons, and I understood his father’s reasons for doing what he did, but it was still tough to read and not feel badly for the guy. As with the rest of her books, JB writes relatable characters, and an engaging story that grabbed me from the start and had me anxiously waiting to get to the end to find out if Breeze and Bodhi will get their HEA.
I loved the wink at the end to Jake from Cake and his little brother, Quinn! I hope that when we finally get to Quinn’s story in the Cake series that we’ll get an update on Bodhi and Breeze.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
About J. BENGTSSON
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.
