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?
Like the Wind
by J. Bengtsson
First: Zachary Webber and Callie Dalton? What’s not to love!? They are two of my favorite narrators because the way they narrate, their performance just feels natural.
Bodhi’s world is falling to pieces when he realizes that he’s been told lies by his dad all his life. A wildfire and a beautiful, quirky young woman make him look back and analyse his spiral down in the last months. Breeze is the girl who he saved from the fire. In return, she saves him. From a loveless life, a shallow life spent in the limelight.
Breeze was raised by hippy parents and it shows. Her easygoing, earthy and quirky disposition make her all kinds of endearing. If she were a real life person I’d want her as my best friend. A person like that would be smothered in the world of Bodhi Beckett, superstar and member of an internationally successful boyband.
Bodhi is enarmored by Breeze from the first moment. Her big heart, her lively personality, her sense of humor, everything about her makes him fall in love with her fast. Bodhi is surprisingly normal for somebody who has thousands of screaming girls at his feet. He and Breeze forge a very strong connection from the moment they meet, surviving a catastrophe together that could have easily cost their lives, made it so. But it’s their banter and sweetness that made them magical and put a perma-smile on my face.
Like The Wind was waaayyy less angsty than I expected and so much fun, I had a blast. It was a cute, feel-good rockstar story that I couldn’t stop listening to. A shout out to the stellar editing that made this story “unpluggable.” There were action-filled parts, when Breeze and Bodhi tried to escape the fire, that made me hold my breath because I was on edge, others made me swoon and laugh, only a few made me hurt just the tiniest bit. This was my first book by J. Bengtsson and I am impressed by the wonderful storytelling and crisp writing style, so I’ll come back for more!
