Product description

Product 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 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?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is a *full-length* standalone romance. Cake is a love story at heart but does deal with a sensitive topic and may not be for all.
Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of eighteen.

*This novel was professionally re-edited on June 28th, 2016*

The story starts well. I appreciated that Casey was smart and confident and generally had her s**t together. (Anyone else board by angst ridden virgins in their romance stories? but I digress). The early dialog transported me back to my early 20's. I loved the characters and I would have swooned after Jake too. The story goes off the rails at around the 3rd re-telling of how they met 'and then she did this crazy dance'. By the 8th time they retell it I was board and disappointed. I'm also not a big fan of reading about sexual abuse and that dominates the second half of the story.
*spoilers*
I really hated that Casey essentially give up her friends, family and career to follow Jake around and this is treated as a happy ending. The meeting of the family really dragged out and was so sickly sweet, everyone gets along famously with everyone leaving dealing with the abuse as the only conflict. The characters start out being complex and interesting and end up oversimplified and dull. They also react to situations in illogical ways. Personally if my partner was anxious about surgery, my first reaction wouldn't be 'why didn't you tell me, let's cancel it'.

I think this writer has a lot of potential, but they're not there yet. This is not a 5 star book. I'll be keeping an eye out for future work though.

This my first book by this author. I did wonder if this was a debut book because the writing style was a little wonky but ignoring that, this was a beautiful book. Funny, sexy and emotional. But not too soul crushing emotional. The only negative thing I found was over writing the characters inner dialogues. It was too much and you are able to skip pages ( that's how long they went on) and not miss a thing. Lol

I liked Cake. I really liked Jake and I loved Casey. Was a good storyline. Original. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because sometimes there was just a bit too much internal dialog. I felt myself start to skim sometimes. Other than that I really enjoyed it. Humour, love and a HEA. What more could you want.

A new author to me, and I sincerely enjoyed her energetic, honest and refreshing writing style.

A kickass bubbly Casey (poop), meets swoony tortured Jake (oops), and magic happens. Who doesn't love cake ? Know I loved it. 💕💕

A really enjoyable read 🙌
