ISHO SummaryAward-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.

isho-my-opinion2I received an ARC of No Weddings in exchange for my honest opinion.

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).

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 Award-winning and bestselling romance author Kat Bastion has teamed up with her husband against human trafficking.

Kat and Stone live amid the beautiful Sonoran Desert of Arizona.

What I’m currently reading:

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon

I’m about 40% into this one.  Loving Jamie and Claire of course, but I have to put it on hold because I HAVE to read other books.  I will say this again:  I think I’ll be 85 before I finish this whole series but it will definitely be worth it.  Also, I am loving the TV show.  What great visuals to go with the books.  Repeat after me:  Sam Heughan!!!

and

The Devil in Denim by Melanie Scott

I just started this one. It’s the first book in a new series called New York Saints. So far so good.  I love reading about sports romances.  I’ll post my opinion next week.

What I recently read:

Seeing as the last book I read hasn’t changed from last week’s post I won’t bore you with that again.

What I hope to read next:

Stone Cold Lover by Christine Warren

This is the second book in the Gargoyle series.  I really enjoyed the first book so I’m definitely looking forward to continuing the story with this one.

What I recently read:

Screwdrivered by Alice Clayton
