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?
5 stars I don’t know what is about this author, but she has the unique ability to leave me laughing so hard that I am practically crying one minute and then have me wanting to hug the main characters in the next. Like the Wind has a lot going on in it with the powerful, underlying message of letting go of your past and instead find your happiness - something that many of us struggle with.
Bohdi is a 24 year-old popstar that has lived his life in the limelight since he was a young child, but soon discovers there are family secrets. Breeze is a hairdresser and pet sitter who struggles with her love life due to a past heartbreak. The two find themselves in a near death situation as California wildfires rip through the houses they are staying at. Thus begins their wild journey together and the journey of self-discovery.
I adored Bohdi. He is sarcastic, jaded, and falling a bit into an early-live crisis. I loved his sarcastic inner monologues and I love how he was with Breeze. Breeze is a bit more easy going with a huge compassionate streak in her and the type of person I would love to have as a friend. The two of them are the perfect couple, but their worlds are so different that it frightens Breeze. Will the two be able to make it work?
Like the Wind had me on the edge of my seat with my heart beating wildly as the author described the wildfires and their big escape. There were several moments when I was laughing - at the banter between Bohdi and Breeze, the banter and actions of Breeze’s hippie parents, Sweetpea’s aka LD’s evil antics, and with the teeny bopper fan-girling - but I also had moments where I really felt for Bohdi when it came to his family. Like the Wind is a sweet, fun, sexy book with wonderful characters and an interesting storyline that sucked me in from the first page and kept me entertained until the very end. I received this book for free.
