Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: No Weddings by Kat Bastion with Stone Bastion

Welcome to Making it Happen's stop on the No Weddings Blog Tour!  Check out all the info on this fantastic book, including my review below...and don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end of the post!

No Weddings Synopsis:
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.


How to sum up this awesome book?  Great storyline, fun characters that have depth, lots of funny moments (I think my co-workers think I'm a bit odd with the laughing outbursts when I was reading during my lunch break), an overload of sexual tension...and two main characters, Cade and Hannah, that are just SO right for each other.
This book flowed smoothly and between the funny lines, emotions and continual tension I stayed riveted to the pages the whole way through.  You've got your classic playboy type male lead and the woman who finally draws his focus, while both still have their own painful pasts to work through-without realizing until quite a ways into the story just how similar those pasts really are.
I loved that this was told from Cade's point of view.  It's always refreshing seeing things from the male perspective, and not having the usual overly girly, emotional thoughts going on.
Both Cade and Hannah are strong characters, and Hannah's feisty nature once Cade breaks through her "Ice Queen" front brings a snarky, fun feel to the story.  Oh, and did I mention the laughs...and innuendos...  ...  ... 
A mostly lighthearted, fun, sexy read with some relationship insight thrown in for good measure, this was a 5-star read for me (and meant for the 18+ crowd), and I can't wait to get started on the next book in this series!

Kat and Stone Bastion Bio:
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.
Kat and Stone live amid the beautiful Sonoran Desert of Arizona. Visit their blog at, website at, and their Twitter accounts at and for more information.
