-A reclusive rock star going through the motions- 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. -A vivacious college student embracing life- When outspoken and fun-loving Casey Caldwell was paired with the famously reserved musician 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 media-shy 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. -Their worlds are about to collide- 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?

My Cake: The Newlyweds Review . . .
I first stumbled across Cake when I was browsing through kindle unlimited titles and I was pleasantly surprised with the story. So, I jumped at the chance to read this one thinking it was a sequel to Cake. And it technically was but it was also book 4 in this series. I felt I was able to read the story without missing out too much, but now I have to read books 2 & 3 because there were elements that were missing that I want to find out now.
Casey and Jake are making it work while Jake is a rock star and Casey is trying to carry on with her normal life, well as normal as it can be when your husband is a rock star. But things are not smooth for Casey's life. This book is set up like a biography of sorts and helps us see how Casey and Jake go from engaged to eventually married. That was neat to see but it did draw out a bit of times and many of the details could have been less. Once we get to the married part the the meat of the story starts to pick up when tragedy hits and Casey and her family's lives are rocked forever. I was a bit gutted during this part and actually didn't see it coming.
Jake still has his own demons that he's been dealing with from the beginning and those demons aren't making for a smooth ride either. However, the thing about Casey and Jake is that they are so much stronger together than separate that's what makes them CAKE. Adored the epilogues how they were set up and I can't wait for more from Casey & Jake's remaining single family members.
