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.

If you haven't listened to this yet, I envy you
We all know how J. Bengtsson can write lovable characters. We repeat-listen to Jake and Casey and the entire McKallister family's stories. But in Like the Wind, I didn't just love Breeze and Bodhi, I was OBSESSED with them. The way that they meet (during a life-threatening forest fire) and the way that their relationship progresses (Bodhi stays with her because he wants to hide from his dad and find his estranged mother) was perfection. They fall fast, but I was so on board with it. When you meet during an intense experience like they did, of course your connection is going to be fast-forwarded. They are so cute together, and they felt like real people. It's really all you'd want in a love story.
