About No Weddings:
Award-winning author Kat Bastion teams with her husband, Stone Bastion, in this first book in the No Weddings Series about Cade Michaelson, a successful man with his sights set on a new venture in business, and Hannah Martin, the woman who makes it personal.
I think I have my act together as a successful bar owner, my master’s degree within reach, and a list of no-strings-attached women warming my bed. Turns out, I don’t.
Hannah believes she has safeguarded her wounded heart by shunning men and focusing on her new baking business. The thing is, she hasn’t.
When my three sisters and I start a new event-planning business with Hannah as our baker, I have no idea how my life is about to change. As Hannah and I work closely together, the attraction between us becomes irresistible. And complicated. I’ve promised my sisters I wouldn’t mix business with pleasure. But I’ve never been one to follow the rules.
OMG! What a fun read! This was a book that definitely made me laugh out loud. And while even the corniest joke can make me LOL when I’m in the right mood (What does a triceratops sit on? His tricerabottom.), I have high standards when it comes to funny books. And this book met them.
First of all, male POVs are always fun. But Cade is just so cute. He’s hardworking, young but damaged, values his friends, loves his sisters, and is hilarious. He’s a catch, all right! I’m just a tad jealous of Hannah. I would love to date a bar owner, event planning company owner, MBA student who’s hot and young. Especially one who redesigned his bedroom to erase any trace of other women. Oh my God! Do those even exist? That’s why I love books.
I also loved the whole family dynamic. You don’t see that much of Cade’s parents, but him and his sisters are awesome. It’s cute to see siblings, especially ones of opposite genders and with big age gaps, be more best friends than family.
Now let’s talk about Cade with Hannah. They’re a perfect match. The way both of their past hurts are so similar. How they both have these big business dreams and will stop at nothing to make them happen. They have so much ambition and passion for what they do, it would make sense that they would get along well both personally and professionally.
But then, there’s that sexual tension messing up their business relationship, thank God. That stuff was so thick you could spread it with a knife on butter!
Now that we’re finally onto the good stuff in their relationship, I cannot wait for One Funeral to come out!
About Kat & Stone Bastion:
Award-winning and bestselling romance author Kat Bastion has teamed up with her husband Stone Bastion to create the new contemporary romance series No Weddings.
A few factoids about the writing team…
Kat enjoys her chocolate rich and dark, her music edgy and soul-filling, and her vacations exotic with toes dug into the sand. And she’s wildly, madly, deeply in love with Stone.
Stone likes pounding the trails on a mountain bike, vibrating the sound system with rock music, and down time spent on a stand up paddleboard. And he loves Kat wildly, madly, deeply…and then some.
Together, they’re having a blast bringing fun-filled romantic stories to life and hope you’ll join them in the exciting adventure.
Kat’s first published work, Utterly Loved, was a twentieth anniversary gift of love poems to Stone that they decided to share with the world to benefit charity. Net proceeds from Utterly Loved, and a portion of net proceeds from all their books, go toward charities involved in the fight against human trafficking.
