Book Summary

A love story that survives the test of time.

Keith McKallister is the king of the stoners. You know the type. Every school has one – the hot, fun, dopey guy beloved by the student body but despised by, well, just about everyone else. He spends his early mornings in the ocean and his days trying to get to class on time. Life is as easy as it gets until one poor choice too many catches up with him and he’s forced to reevaluate his path.

Samantha Anderson sits in the front row. You know the type. Every school has one – the quiet, faceless, studious girl who fears the taunts of her peers and fades into the background. Life has never been simple for Samantha, and it’s about to get a little more complicated when Keith slides into the seat beside her with a partnership plan designed for his benefit only. But what Keith brings to the table is more than either of them could imagine.

Sometimes the person you least expect to make a difference will change your life forever. Sometimes the person you love the most might be better off without you.

*Although a part of the Cake Series, this book can be read as a standalone.

    I had high hopes for Rogue Wave and honestly this book was sitting at 4.5 stars until Chapter 33 and it slid down to two stars but came back up with the ending and epilogue. Here’s the deal, there is no doubt that each of the siblings in the McKallister family had issues stemming from what happened to Jake, but Keith’s issues started before that and he spiraled after Jake’s kidnapping. Let me warn you readers if you haven’t read the Cake series (especially Cake), you will be lost reading this one. I was lost and I had read the entire series a couple years ago. That being said, I get that the hero and heroine had issues and that their road to happily ever after wasn’t going to be easy, not with the hero being an addict and the heroine suffering from abuse by her mother so it’s not that they had things to work through, it’s that after getting together in high school and being happy, the tragedy struck Keith’s family and tore them apart when Keith chose drugs over Samantha and his family. It’s not that Sam had to move away in order to be safe and because she knew that Keith needed to clean himself up for him not for her or anyone else. It’s not that they spent years and years apart. It’s that after those years apart when they finally reconnect in an interesting way, where they start anew and begin to know each other as the adults they’ve become through adversity that instead of letting readers see them enjoy one another, watch their relationship build, and understand that together they are stronger instead the author decided to throw more sh*t their way. So we didn’t get to see them actually enjoying being together again, we see them alone and miserable. For once, I’d love to see a book where couples actually lean on one another, where they DISCUSS options instead of one trying to play martyr especially when they don’t have all the facts, and where they fight TOGETHER. I understand this is the author’s story but honestly I almost stopped reading the book at that point because I was tired of Keith being jerked around, I was tired of Sam not getting a break, and I was tired of once again seeing them apart rather than together. If it wasn’t for the last chapter and the epilogue, I would have been majorly ticked off about this story. I loved seeing the McKallister clan again, I loved seeing Keith finally realize his issues and dealing with them, I loved seeing both Sam and Keith succeed in their own way, and I was happy they got together, I just wanted MORE time with them as a couple and less time of them alone. I did like a great deal of this book, but unfortunately that one section turned me sour on the book as a whole which is sad. Rogue Wave was a bit of a disappointment after waiting so long to read Keith and Samantha’s story, but with that being said I am excited about the spin-off series to come.

    Keith McKallister is one of the skater/stoner boys at his high school. Being a part of that group meant he had to smoke weed. In an effort to fit in, that’s exactly what he did and now it’s affecting his ability to graduate unless he sorts himself out. You see, Keith comes from an amazing family who love and support him. He knows he is causing them trouble and has promised his dad that he will change.

    Samantha Anderson comes from a completely opposite situation. She lives with her mother and this lady is a nasty piece of work. It’s surprising that Samantha has turned out to be such a lovely young girl after what she endures not just on a daily basis but the sadness of her past. She needs to keep her GPA up if she is to ever get into college so she can leave this town and her mother for good.

    When Samantha gets paired with Keith as her lab partner she can see any chance of going to college slowly diminishing. He is always late, disruptive and sleeps in class. She will not go down with him, she’d rather go it alone. Then something changes and Keith goes from disinterested to a very engaged student. They begin studying together and hanging out a bit.

    There is something about Samantha that draws Keith in. Once he got to know her a bit better they really hit it off and before too long their friendship develops into so much more. When a tragedy strikes Keith’s family everything changes. The love they had seems to vanish and Keith is unreachable as he struggles to deal with what has happened in his family. Sam has her own burdens to bear and after her own incredibly sad situation, she ends up moving away.

    Keith and Samantha’s story spans over 11 years, some of it together and some of it apart. They both have some growing up to do but the one thing that never changed throughout this book was the depth of love they had for each other. They have had to fight for their happiness and have both been through some incredibly rough shit. However, there was more to come…

    It’s really interesting reading about how each of the siblings were affected by what happened to their family and how it shaped them as adults. I guess you could call this a second chance love story but it was more like a third chance ☺

    This is the fifth story in the Cake series which centres around the McKallister siblings. This is a stand alone but there are a few appearances of people from the previous which could potentially be a spoiler if you are yet to read them.
