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.
Firstly, this is told from Cade’s point of view. I’m a total sucker for a book written from the male point of view. Secondly, as I’m reading along I come across the information that Cade rides a custom motorcycle. Needless to say, I WAS HOOKED!
This story is very well written. I fell in love with all the characters. I mean ALL the characters; including all the secondary ones too.
I knew going in that this is the first book in a series. What I didn’t know is that the story continues through the four books of the series. Don’t let that keep you from reading this!
In this book Cade and Hannah are building their relationship. What starts off as a business relationship quickly becomes a friendship and then starts to blossom into something more. It is a slow burn. Both Hannah and Cade have been badly hurt in a previous relationship and understandably are reluctant to get into another relationship.
I am anxious to get to more of their story and am looking forward to seeing how things progress for Cade and Hannah. I very much enjoyed this book and give it five hot and steamy lattes (served up with some of Hannah’s delicious cupcakes).
