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 form an 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.
My review :
Lovable, easy, funny, sexy, steamy read with endearing characters.
This is the story of Hannah and Cade, working together at Invitations Only, an entertaining business build by Cade and his sisters. Cade has one rule : no weddings! (you have to read to know why and i don’t want to spoil all the story, so). Hannah is hire as her talents for the amazing skills for bake ring, specially for her pieces of arts; she owns her Cupcake shop.
It’s very interesting because this story focuses on the relationship between the two main characters without all kind of crazy things and i think it’s soothing. The reader can concentrate on them. But the beginning wasn’t easy : instead of sparkles, the chemistry went as a dud. Cade is an attractive guy sure of his assets; Hannah, beautiful talented woman who put him down since the first time, being an ice queen.This book put an important point in building a relation between two broken people (emotionally i meant), even the physical attraction, Cade isn’t trying to have a sense of a relation but it’s like so natural. Hannah did the same. They seemed so different but they had much more in common.
They tried to become friends, he gave her business advices, she make dinner for him and his friends. The more they saw each other, the more they became more than friends but without benefits. They challenged each other, Hannah letting him in her life, as Cade. She hasn’t only found her best friend but also a family with Cade, his sisters, Ben and Mase. Cade was a surprising character; i wasn’t expecting at all for his attitude. He’s the only waiting for her, trying to make things right. He’s amazed, stunned by Hannah’s work. He’s supportive and always put her first. His very protective of his family and especially Hannah. I love how caveman he can be when some guys try to talk to her, or flirting! He’s so sweet! He’s kind of mature for his age and knows exactly what he wants: Hannah.
If your looking for a sweet,fun romance, with a evolution of a relationship between two people, who try to be happy, to find a meaning in their lives without crazy stuff, i recommend it!
