**About the Author**
A professional stay-at-home-mom for twenty-one years, Jill Bengtsson 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 and 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.

*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

I loved this! I had to listen it again to remember what I loved about this audiobook, and I have fallen in love with this... AGAIN! I laughed and loved all at the same time from beginning to end. I enjoyed the quirky and snarky banter between these two characters. I liked how this was told in both of their points of views (POV). The descriptive writing brought forth an emotional and humorous love story between two people from two different worlds brought together by a devastating wildfire.

The pacing was perfect. It had its laugh out loud, teary-eyed, and "awww" moments that kept perfect pace with all the emotional angst that the narrators evoked in this audiobook. Zachary Webber and Callie Dalton were the perfect voices to portray these characters.

This is the first of the many stories that J. Bengtsson has written, and I am already in love with Like The Wind. With the beautiful balance of romance, humor, and snarky banter, Like The Wind is an emotionally addictive love story that I probably can listen to a few times over... Just like now! This is a re-listen for me...Haha!!!
