Publisher's Summary

Quinn

Just six years old when my brother was snatched off the street, I grew up in the aftermath of tragedy. 

While other kids were happily playing in the sandbox, I was crawling under press conference podiums listening to my parents beg for Jake’s safe return. 

People sometimes asked if I was screwed up after what happened, and I never knew how to respond. Life after the kidnapping was all I’d ever known. 

Well, that and being the youngest brother to a rock star. Jake was the ultimate survivor. The prodigal son. My king. 

But I’m not that worshipful kid anymore, and I’m tired of walking a step behind. I’ve got the talent. I’ve got the drive. And now I’m coming for Jake’s throne.

I can’t get enough!!!

I know I have thought this about every book in the Cake series but… this one may just be my favorite one yet!!! I swear J. Bengtsson keeps getting funnier, more creative and more inspiring with every story she writes. It truly amazes me that she has not run out of amazing ideas after this many books, the woman is truly gifted!!!

I really LOVED Quinn’s and Jess’ personalities and stories. I literally read it in 2 long sittings, I couldn’t put it down. I laughed out loud so many times, I LOVED every second of it!! I will definitely be reading/listening to this book again and again as my default go-to. The Cake series is my absolute favorite of all the hundreds of books I have read and NEXT IN LINE reminds me again of exactly why!!

On top of that you add in 2 of Audible’s most loved narrators to sprinkle in their flavors and you absolutely CAN NOT GO WRONG with this selection!

Very relatable and enjoyable book!! I have been telling everyone I talk to about it, just so I can keep reliving it! I truly can not get enough of this book!!

Gave me a Book Hangover! <3 <3

J. Bengtsson truly has a gift for writing and telling a story. This addition to the Cake Series was wonderful and made me fall in love with the McKallister family all over again. This book has all the feels and hit every emotion for me. Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt are so perfect as well! DEFINITELY hard to put down , You may find yourself binge listening like I did! Sad to reach the end because I want the story to go on. This one will be a re-listen for sure!

Loved it! Not what I expected so much better!

Like everyone of her books, I just can't put them down. Spent the whole day listening and just love how she brought the family together again and worked through Quinn and Jake's relationship. Great characters, great humor and a great story told well! The two narrators are absolute gold and were perfect for this book. Bravo another great addition to the perfect series!

Awesomeness for Quinn

I don’t write reviews. So forgive me.
This book was fantastic. I didn’t want it to end. There is rivalry between Quinn and Jake that had been developing in the the earlier books. It was fascinating tone to see how Quinn and Jake were going to deal with that. Quinn’s story is of him finding his girl, himself, his own way and way to succeed as a musician.
Although I feel this could be a standalone I 100% recommend reading the series (or at the very least Cake and Cale the Newlyweds)before reading this book
Jill knocked it out of the park for Quinn. (Thank you Lady!!) I loved this book!!!!!

Outstanding!!!

I feel like I’ve been waiting for Quinn’s story forever and to say it was worth the wait is the understatement of the decade. I have read all of Bengtsson’s books and this one takes the cake (pun intended)! This author’s writing style is exceptional and she has a way of presenting each story in a new and fresh way. I devoured this book from the first line. Loved Quinn and Jess’ meet cute. They were so beautifully matched and well-suited for one another and watching their story unfold was such a treat! Stellar narration from two of the best around. I couldn’t recommend this book enough. FIVE STARS all around...don’t miss this one!

Good Read but Rock Star is getting old

Love the family, the dialogue, the characters, very fun read, but I’m feeling like the basic story line of the rock star rising to fame with the not famous girl was done with Jake. Maybe it’s time to move on to new material.

Mag to the Max!

The entire series is a joy, and "Next in Line" is as good as its five predecessors. Characters you take into your heart and treasure forever, They grow and blossom, and the tree keeps branching with no sign of slowing--Quinn and Jess's story has hints of what (and who) is to come, and we can't wait! Enthralling storylines, with lots of laughter, twists of the unexpected (life, anyone?), and underlying tragedy that stirs the emotions. Romantic love and a family to love. Great writing matched to marvelous narration.

Start with "Cake," listen in order. If you've discovered this series, you've probably read/listened to them all more than once. If haven't experienced them yet -- what the heck are you waiting for????

Wow! Loved this book

I was a bit apprehensive to read this book as I loved Kyle and kensie’s story so much but this was as good I love humour and the sarcasm that the author demonstrates through all her characters but also feeling the emotion that each individual character is going through
Very very well done excellent book if you like this genre perfect read
Cannot praise it enough. 5 stars from me
