    Delicious!"There aren't enough words to describe what you do to me, for me. Every day, I wake thinking about how I can make you smile, cause your laugh. I know I love you because of the things I want to learn about you, endless ways I want to touch your body, your heart. There are so many adventures I want to take you on, experiences I want to have with you - just to live in the moment with you." Absolutely adorable...Endlessly entertaining... Sweet & sexy...*I promise, I'm done with the alliteration*The bond between Cade & Hannah is evolving into something so lovely, I can't wait to find out what happens in Three Christmases!CADEHannah was my world. It wasn't about trying to fit her in to what already existed. It needed to begin with Hannah. We came back to Cade's POV with this book and I'm not ashamed to say I fell in love with his character with each and every page. Cade is not perfect - he's a workaholic with OCD tendencies - but he's open, honest, and so damn genuine, you can't help but fall in love with him!HANNAHA man could get spoiled with a woman like Hannah. Best friend turned lover, and becoming so much more. Who would've thought the woman I'd originally labeled an Ice Queen was sexually adventurous? I never would have guessed in a million years. Business is booming at Hannah's bakery which is great professionally, but leaves less and less time to enjoy her personal life.Cade and Hannah are stealing away any time they can, but the separation is taking its toll.The first two books in this series explored each character's personal issues. They knew that they wanted to take their friendship to a deeper level, but first they had to face all circumstances which kept them from forming meaningful relationships: - mending their broken hearts - learning to trust each other - becoming part of a team after so many years aloneBy the end of book two, they had made the hard journey together, and finally found a beautiful place in their romance...Unfortunately, fate has a few more obstacles to throw at our couple: - Someone is deliberately sabotaging their event planning company, - Cade and Hannah can barely scrape any time together, - Their easy communication is beginning to deteriorate, - and one of their dreaded exes is making trouble...The couple had to stand together to face all of these outside forces, even though they stumbled and struggled along the way. Cade and Hannah are very believable characters in that respect.They show us that love is worth working for.In lighter news - this book retains all of the friendly banter and humor which I've come to adore in this series. The balance of Romance/Sex/Humor/Drama is absolute perfection. I'm constantly impressed by this series....also we get the frosting scene we've been tempted with since the very beginning!"I'm not going to say it again. Naked. Except for your little vintage apron." I pointed to her feet. "And those strappy shoes." Oh Yes, Kat & Stone Bastion have more than made up for the lack of sex in book one! The steam perfectly compliments the romance and I'm left utterly satisfied yet pining for the next book!***I was given an ARC of this book by the Authors in exchange for an honest review***

    Amazon Buy link -> http://amzn.to/1t1OOlRA fun, sexy, flirty treat where feelings are explored and deepened. It’s a wonderfully smooth flowing story line with lots of trips to Naughtyville, abundant baked goods and playful condiments, a cute puppy and a few potholes. “I’m thinking the next step above puppy therapy is kitchen-island-condiment therapy.Two Bar Mitzvahs is a great romance told through the eyes of a very confident, sexy man. “My mind helplessly guttering… (I’m a guy; we go there. Not gonna feel guilty about it.)”It starts off right where One Funeral left off. Cade and Hannah don’t just have their fresh relationship to work at and be happy about. They also have to balance their very successful enterprises which come with more work and some unwanted problems. Add to that the resurgence of Cade’s nightmarish ex-girlfriend and we have the ingredients for a very interesting read. “But no matter where we go or what happens, we’ll have us in the middle of it all.” ~ Cade“I love the ‘us in the middle of it all’ part. Makes us sound invincible.” ~ HannahIn the third book in the No Wedding series, Cade and Hannah find time to enjoy themselves away from reality, while getting to know Cade’s parents and even during work. But they also face the normal obstacles any couple in a relationship have and then some. Which they dealt with in a very mature manner. Communication is the key, but in the chaos and whirlwind of their lives, it can get lost.“It’s not easy balancing out what used to be two separate lives into one relationship.”It’s awesome being in Cade’s completely candid mind. Cade continues to be the strong, assertive, determined, driven man I fell in love with from the start. But now, even when his thoughts tend to gutter where Hannah is concerned, his love for her is so completely evident it makes me swoonyer-er-er. “You are driven to be successful in a creative way, which I love. Everything you are draws me toward you. You’re a gorgeous, petite ball of fire who brightens a room the moment you walk in.”I also like Hannah so, so much. She’s just a great heroine, easy going and genuine. So incredibly supportive but at the same time vulnerable and sweet. She’s grown stronger and when things started getting tough she showed fierceness to match Cade’s.“Hannah glanced up at me. Everything was there in her eyes: pride, worry, confusion, love. I focused on the last. Her love—all that mattered”Like I mentioned before, Cade and Hannah have a whole lot of sexy, sultry time in this book, with threats of condimentation and lots of flirtatious enjoyment.“C’mon, it’s fun. Stick yours in by mine.” Not opposed to sticking anything in by her, I did as she asked, holding my marshmallows next to hers.They also spend quality time with the tightknit group of friends and family who have now adopted Hannah as part of their clan.“To new families and the security in knowing that with love, an entire army will always have your back.”I love how Kat and Stone give good advice, and put values like solidarity, charity and family in high priority through their stories. “I want you all to think about where you buy your goods from, not just tonight, but every day. Every one of your purchasing decisions can make a difference in someone’s life halfway around the world.”The titles for each chapter are so apt. I savor how they take us to different places and events with their rich descriptions because it automatically sends me in search of the perfect picture to represent what I’m reading and makes me want to dabble in doing a pic review. May be I’ll be brave enough for the last book.“Frosting was about to become a contact sport.”Even though the books in this series are of the same fantastic couple, each dives into a different aspect of their relationship. I wouldn’t describe these books as light reads, because they’re so full of depth and emotion. But most of those emotions are of the happy sweet variety that will make you smile and gain some pounds. I’ll be waiting with eager anticipation for the next book Three Christmases“Thank you for seducing me, Hannah. Thank you for loving me.”* I was graciously given an ARC of this book by the authors.

    First, Yay we are back in Cade’s head! I kinda missed knowing his every thought in One Funeral. This is the start of Cade and Hannah’s very physical relationship. Whatever might have been missing in actual intercourse in the first two installments is blown away here. There are plenty of sexy times to be had for Cade and Hannah. But like anytime you change the nature of your relationship there are a few growing pains along the way. Both Hannah and Cade have had a few imperfect relationships and it takes time to figure out how to include another person in on your entire life. There is also the issue of being busy with your careers and taking time for yourself and the person you are with. I think that most relationships have gone through this. Cade’s love for Hannah is apparent in his words and deeds (most of the time).“There aren’t enough words to describe what you do to me, for me. Every day, I wake thinking about how I can make you smile, cause your laugh. I know I love you because of the things I want to learn about you, endless ways I want to touch your body, your heart. There are so many adventured I want to take you on, experiences I want to have with you – just to live in that moment with you.”It’s so easy to get caught up in other areas of your life and forget to put in the time here and there in your relationships. It doesn’t help that Cade’s ex shows up in his life at the same time that someone seems to be trying to sabotage his businesses. While Cade is running around trying to put out fires and figure out who is trying to destroy his life sometimes things will fall through the cracks. “Intimacy doesn’t take a lot of time, but you do have to make the time. You can’t work long hours, days at a time, only keeping the prize at the end. A healthy relationship needs constant attention, daily, even if just a few moments to connect. Like a pot on the stove – you want to keep it on simmer so it doesn’t boil over.”So glad he has a great support system to give him some strong advice along the way.I have to say I really hated Cade’s ex, like I was supposed to. Maddison showed up at just the wrong time in all the right places and she definitely had an agenda. She wants Cade back and she wasn’t going to pull any punches to try and make it happen. I liked how Cade tried to handle her and everything else in his life. Sure he made some mistakes along the way, but they were not really contrived and more mistakes anyone in his situation could make.I love the direction of the story and damn sexy time between Cade and Hannah was hot!!! Great continuation of the story and I can’t wait to see how everything concludes in Three Christmases.Thank you to Kat and Stone Bastion via Netgealley for the ARC

    ARC provided through NetGalley for an honest review.3 No Kids StarsNow that Hanna and Cade are officially a couple, things seem to be going well. That is until Cade's destructive ex, Madison, shows up. At first he's doesn't want to see her, but when strange things start to happen with both his and Hannah's businesses, he spends more time around her trying to figure out if she's the same manipulative girl he knew or this new contrite woman who presented herself to him.As time goes on it becomes clear that Madison has some issues. Lack of communication and time due to work obligations, cause issues in their relationship. Hannah's fears cause her to run and Cade believes he's lost the only girl he's ever really loved. What's a guy to do when he keeps making the same mistakes? Will he lose the girl for him?This installment was still sweet. Not as good as the last one. I found myself not as interested in what was happening as in the last book. I think the other characters weren't as involved and Madison's crazy behavior bugged. Don't get me wrong. It's still a sweet series, I just didn't love it as much as the first two books in the series.

    Love Cade and Hannah! This sweet couple faces the challenges of balancing their love and work lives with the added devious machinations of Cade's ex...aka "Selfish Bitch." I was actually right there with Cade...thinking he was handling things ok...until the end when things really hit the fan. I guess neither Cade nor I realized how fragile Hannah was feeling about everything. The ending was heart-wrenching and then heart-warming. Love the author/s being able to continue the series without zapping readers with nasty cliffies. Thank you!

    A copy was provided by Netgalley for an honest review.I am in love with Cade. He is crazy smart, loyal, sexy and has the biggest heart, and Cade’s parents’ house is the coolest ever! I want their garage. I so want to kick Madison. What a witch!While I have enjoyed all of the books in this series so far, I have decided that Cade’s POV makes a better read. I am not sure if there are plans to alternate POVs but I hope Cade takes center stage more often than not. Cade has a easy voice and keeps the flow easy and fun. I love Hannah, I just was not as entertained by her POV in One Funeral.

    Overall rating: 4.5 "Maestro" stars!Triggers:Cheating: (view spoiler)[ no(hide spoiler)]Love triangle: (view spoiler)[ no(hide spoiler)]Sex with om/ow: (view spoiler)[ no(hide spoiler)]HEA: (view spoiler)[ HFN - series continues with 4th book(hide spoiler)]My review:I was SO excited to pick this book up because I just LOVE Cade's POV. :DThis book picks up right after the ending of the last book. So after Hannah and Cade take the next step in their relationship, with their businesses booming and "Selfish Bitch" coming back from the past, how will they navigate?? What I appreciated most in this book, was Cade's adoration of Hannah. When Madison (his ex GF) tries to tell him she wants to be with him again, he turns her down every time. But he also doesn't allow her to get the wrong idea about anything. After he initially meets with her for closure in the beginning (which Hannah knows ALL about - they don't keep secrets) she wants to meet with him for coffee again, and instead of "feeling bad for her", he tells her absolutely not. That is not appropriate to meet privately when he has a girlfriend. I also appreciated the fact that Cade and Hannah worked hard to keep their relationship honest and without any secrets. Cade did that for the most part, but those few times towards the end where he didn't mention certain things, I honestly believe that he had so much crap going on, especially coming home to a flooded house :( that certain things took the back burner from his mind. So towards the end, when Hannah runs away after seeing him with Madison in a compromising position, I could see both sides of the story. Especially because the story is told from Cade's POV. I DO, however, think that instead of giving her space, he should have immediately ran after her, but that's just my opinion. I did appreciate that he let her know that he was giving her space but refused her resignation and basically let her know that he was coming after her. This installment was definitely more steamy - which I appreciated! But it was also filled with love and adoration and I loved that!I am excited to continue on with the next installment, but after Cade's vow to put Hannah first and not work, now that he has all of these out of town meetings for a new business venture, I am curious how that is going to pan out. Here are some QUOTES that I DIDN'T get to include in my status updates LOLHannah WAS my world. It wasn't about trying to fir her in to what already existed. It all needed to BEGIN with Hannah."Do you trust me?" He put the spatula back down onto the counter. I held his intense gaze, my heart melting all over again. "With all that I am." "Then lie back, Maestro. Let me love you ... with all that I am."

Hannah also meets the parents the old fashion way at their house and while her nerves are shot and she is worried about making a bad impression Cade throws her in the pool... and I loved it!! I love Neanderthal Cade! I have to say book two I hated how annoying Hannah was- oh we need therapy, you need therapy blah blah ugh.. this book we have a less annoying Hannah who is insistant on knowing every detail of every moment.. While I get it she just acts a tad immature for me. (but maybe because I want Cade and she has him) who knows I give her benefit of the doubt because I like her sassy flirty ... side.Chase after me. Always fight for us. even when I cantYou still not sure you want to read this book let me paint a picture " Cade Naked Covered in Frosting "- Ill nail you with frosting ** Only with frosting??

    Wow! this series just keeps getting better, and I love Cade's POV ! These two took things slow through the firs to books but are they ever making up for it now that they have taken the relationship to a sexual relationship, so break out your drool bibs and your personal fans will get a little steamy in here! Not to say that Cade and Hannah are not faced with challenges , because they are , and though this challenge presents it self from Cades side , it is really gping to effect Hannah too ; especiallys since it is the "selfish bitch " that shows up to make life difficult ! Madison, " the selfish bitch " is back and besides making herself a nuisance in Cade's life , Madison tries to degrade Hannah an push her out of Cade's life. But to add insult to injury while business is booming for Cade's bar Loading Zone and invitations only is juggling a dual Bar Mitzvahs and a huge fourth of July party, someone is trying to sabotage the businesses; canceling orders and not just loading zones and invitation only but Hannah's bakery supply orders too. To Cade it just seems a little too coincidental that Madison back in town and issues begin. They come to find out that Madison is actually working at the country club that the Bar Mitzvah family is holding the events but trying to pin down the sabatour is eluding . Madison keeps popping up and inserting herself in Cade's life at the seemingly right times that lead Hannah to become insecure given her past history It Also does not help that Cade being so busy and acting the Alpha male trying to protect Hannah from Madison actually makes the insecurities worse by not sharing! Can these two survive lack of communication and Madison's interference. Are promises enough? "I promise ,Hannah . I promise to think for you when you can't, I promise to chase after you when you run. And I promise to fight for us no matter what obstacles come our way."Are promises enough?

    This is the continuation of Cade and Hannah’s love story. It can be read as a standalone but I would highly recommend reading the earlier books. Also this book is told from Cade’s POV and I have to say I really loved that. Cade and Hannah are still working on their relationship, they’re learning to communicate and trying to grow together but a very busy schedule and a nasty, vindictive ex are getting in the way. It was really interesting for me to be in Cade’s head as he sorted through some of their communication issues, I imagine this is one of the benefits of a husband/wife writing team, no one gets let off the hook or too idealized. I didn’t always agree with Hannah’s decisions and I had no problem seeing things from Cade’s point of view (though I don’t know if that’s because the book was from his POV or because my hubby has that same “hero” need to take everything on himself so I’m used to it after all these years)This was a great book and a wonderful addition to the series. I’m very eagerly awaiting more! I received an ARC of this book from the publisher through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

    Read my full review on Book BumblingsFinally! These two get some sexual satisfaction! L’chaim! (By the way, you’re really gonna see my Jewish come out in this review. I almost want to send it to my grandma so she can see how many Yiddish and Hebrew words I use. She’d be so proud until she realizes I’m writing about books with sex).This book finally has steamy scenes with actual sex instead of just general hotness. I mean, the steamy scenes were great without the sex, but I was starting to fill just as unfulfilled as Cade and Hannah must have been. I was seriously schvitzing.It sucks that they got so busy with work when they finally started getting busy between the sheets. And then a crazy ex pops up! Apparently, a really crazy one. Like, mentl with Yentl (double bonus points here because I'm referencing a Jewish movie and Barbra Streisand).

     Two Bar Mitzvahs, Kat Bastion with Stone BastionReview from jeannie zelos book reviewsGenre:  romance, women’s fictionWell, I loved the first two books and the heat has definitely turned up now – it took all of book one to get to a first kiss, all of book two to get Hannah into bed, but now they’re hot and heavy at every opportunity! It fits well into the scenes though, not added sex for the sake of it, but a natural progression as their relationship matures. Hannah is still struggling with her confidence though and having Cade’s ex turn up and make it clear she wants him back isn’t helping. Cade is wonderful, and tells Hannah he’s not interested, but he’s busy micromanaging every aspect of the businesses, and as they’ve grown and become more popular his time with Hannah is taking a knock. Plus of course he’s a guy (!)– and doesn’t know when he should tell Hannah things that he may think is irrelevant but she doesn’t, and it leads to some friction. As ever the family and co workers/friends are a fabulous group. The story centres around Cade and Hannah, but the others play some important parts in the story. Madison – the ex – is a great character, a real nasty piece of work, manipulative and out for what she wants, regardless of the cost to others. I loved ( to hate!) her character. Once again the events are described wonderfully, fitting into the story and giving me a clear mental image of them. The convo with Madison over the food at the bar mitzvah – where she’s planned crab cakes and pigs in blankets, and talks down to Cade when he nixes them, suggesting he’s just being picky – then he points out the Jews/pork/shellfish connection ...wonderful. Its that kind of tiny detail that’s potentially a huge problem that makes Cade so good at his job. Hannah’s cakes once again are incredible, I have this mental image of them and I love the way Kat and Stone have cone up with the most unusual ideas for them... It all wraps up in another fabulous story, taking Cade and Hannah that one step further finally. Its full of emotion, smiles, despair, how to work through dramas, how to deal with ( and not deal with ) exes, and through it all is the shining happiness of Hannah and Cade – well until Cade takes a wrong step and it all crashes  He’s at a loss over how to sort things, how to persuade Hannah he can be trusted, that he will make things right. His dad is just wonderful, and gives him some very good advice about work/life balance and Cade can see where he’s let the ball slip – can he pick it up again though and show Hannah they belong together? That was so sad, I felt for him, we could see the disaster coming, but he was so busy micro managing he didn’t see it and when it hit – oh poor Hannah, with her past it struck her badly, and I was so sad for her, but rooting for Cade not to give up, to pick her up and put things right. They’re such a great couple, and this book has some very explicit steamy scenes, but they’re good both mentally and emotionally and not just in the physical sense. There’s a theme of helping others less fortunate running through the series. Cade’s parents support an anti slavery charity, the businesses hold charity events, and the theme of one of the parties is about Fair Trade with only Fair Trade products used and partygoers encourages to purchase FT clothing. Its a reminder of the small things we can do in everyday life that can have a huge impact on other people's lives. There’s a section at the end of the novel about the charities mention in the books. They are fictitious but there are real ones like them who need our help, and some of the proceeds from the  sales of the No Weddings series go to support them.

    So this is it. The favorite from the No Wedding Series. I can actually say this because I am writing this review after I read the last instalment of No Weddings. I still think this is a tad bit long wound and I was wondering if the series would keep my attention. I also found that it always took a while to get into the books, this one made no exception. Actually it sorta did. I got into it quite fast but got a bit side tracked in the middle. Two reasons for this, first I am super mega busy at the moment so I have very little reading time. Second, well again we got the long wound problem. But there was a wee bit more. I was not convinced by the villain. She seem way too cliche and over the top. Which is probably my biggest issue with this book. While all the character building is really meticulously done, with so much thought of detail, so precise one feels like one knows the two MCs personally, they feel real. The support cast, while great, feels a wee bit too cliche. Some of them are just too good to be true, others too bad to be true. The story line was a tad bit over the top - at least when it comes to Maddy. But the reactions of Hannah and Cade through all of it? DAMN! That could have been Mr.O and I. SO this struck me hard and deep and that's the reason this is my favorite. It also is the reason why I was gleefully happy that I had a copy of Three Christmases waiting on my kindle. But the other reason I loved this so much, in fact what I adore about this series, besides all that I have mentioned in the previous books: CADE.Yes, he is just undeniable hot stuff.Let's examine this a wee bit closer:Kincade Joseph Michaelson6'2"dark hair, blue eyes, chiselled handsome features. Broad shoulders,toned bodySounds great doesn't it, but he ain't just pretty.great business mind, well educated, loyal, daring, protective, strong family ties, independent, clever, great humor, honest, generous...and his best asset: total potty mouth and wittyHow do you resist this?I'm a guy; we go there. Not gonna feel guilty about it. Kikki grabbed another miniature sandwich. It was her fourth; I'd been counting. And still, when you added hem all together, it didn't equal a whole sandwich"Are you two coming?"Kendal popped her head around the corner. No. But we'd like to be.Where did those annoyed looks originate, anyway? Women must've patented the damned thing and gifted the ability to each other when men weren't paying attention.The answer you don't. Well, let me rephrase that- I couldn't resist. So the four stars are simply because I couldn't resist, I was a sighing happy mess by the end. Thanks to Cade. But just chalking it up to mr. dirty talking hotness would not do this justice. As I said, I can related to Hannah and Cade, their actions mirror my choices in life.. so it's simply great character building and wonderful writing that earn this 4 shiny stars. Kudos to the two authors. PS I still got questions!!!Oh speaking of questions:Fuck. Do all women have an ingrained ability to remember old resolved screw-up to recycle at a later date?YEP, Cade we do.

    In the third book in the No Wedding Series, we hear Cade Michaelson’s point of view again and I was utterly delighted. I loved reading his witty banter with his friends, his sister and Hannah. His charming ways drew me in every time he opened his mouth.He continues to sweep Hannah and us off our feet as he attempts to have it all. Hannah and Cade are trying to make their way through their new relationship. At the same time Cade is trying to juggle two businesses and an ex-girlfriend from hell. Keeping secrets from Hannah in a misguided attempt to “protect her”. Cade has a few miss steps along the way. Can he show Hannah that their love is worth fighting for or will she run from him again. Will he convince her that she can trust him with her heart? Will Cade learn how to balance love and work without losing the person who means the most to him in the world?The first two books we began to slowly know Cade and Hannah as individual people. In book one we learned about Cade’s relationship passed and how he was burned by love. In book two we learned from Hannah how her past relationship had scared her, losing her ability to trust men, to trust herself. It has been interesting to get into Cade and Hannah’s heads. I love how the authors have changed POV from book to book. I think it really has made a solid story, one that I want to know more about. There was a very slow buildup of sexual tension from the first two books; I got to say book three makes up for the rare sexual encounters in book one and two. The sex scenes in book three were scorching, hot, and steamy. Cade takes his alpha male persona and magnifies it by a thousand in the bedroom. While still allowing Hannah to grow and explore her sensual side.“I meant what I said earlier, Hannah. It’s not about the sex for me. No matter how wild we get, or how much I tease, what we do sexually will always be about the deeper connection between us.”The thing I love most about this series is that Hannah and Cade’s relationship is so real. They face problems that we all face in our relationships in real life. Trying to balance prosperous businesses and being able to stay successful in relationships. Being together is hard. Trusting someone with your heart is the scariest thing in the world. Cade and Hannah struggle with outside forces trying to break them. I was enthralled from chapter to chapter wondering where the authors would take this amazing couple. Truly a roller coaster ride of emotions that I would like to get on again and again. I laughed, I cried and sometimes I screamed in frustration when Cade messed up. “Chase after me. Always fight for us, even when I can’t.” “Promise me.”If you like a romance with real people who begin as great friends and build into a forever kind of love and passion for each other then you will love this series. Truly a fabulous read and I can’t wait to get my hands on the continuing story of this wonderful couple. "We decide how happy we are even with real-life things happening around us that we can’t control. There will always be that. But no matter where we do or what happens, we’ll have us in the middle of it all” Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    ★★★★★"The man who fell in love with you wants to fight for us, not for selfish reasons, but for you. If you’ll give me another chance, if you understand sometimes I’m an idiot and slap me upside the head, I will fight to be worthy of you."I got a copy from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.The No Weddings Series is back with Cade narrating again. Ah, yes. I really love it when we get to be inside Cade's head.The floodgates have opened. Hannah and Cade are officially together but there are still troubles in paradise. Cade is trying to balance his time between his new relationship with Hannah along and his booming business. Add to that, there's also an ex on the loose determined to sabotage what they have.This time it's all about how the characters deal with the changes brought on by their new relationship. I like Hannah better here because she's really optimistic about their relationship to the point that it rivals Cade's. It was nice that she is because she has always been doubtful that their relationship will succeed and Cade always assured her that it would work. I've been worried about Hannah's pessimism in them because it might tire Cade out to keep on encouraging her. “We have to talk more. I need you to know what we need to talk about. In fact, don’t decide what is and isn’t important to share with me, it all is—from the mundane to the shocking. If something upsets you? Tell me. Make me a part of your life in such a deep way that I don’t feel separate from it. I don’t ever want to feel like you’re keeping things from me again, even if it’s unintentional.”She's really positive about everything now and she trusts Cade.Now the ball is on Cade's court. Aside from getting annoyed with his ex from hell, I also wanted to slap some sense in Cade's mind. He has the tendency to try to handle everything and refuses help from anyone else. Perhaps it's because of the businessman in him or he was just not in a relationship for so long that he forgets to do little things like sharing and stuff.This book also taught me that little things left unsaid might cause big problems. Case in point, again, Cade trying to handle things which led him to not share things with Hannah.When they had an almost falling out, I was like, "Oh, no. Is this for real?" It was really unexpected because I expected that to happen on the next book. And for once, the pace was finally "normal." Let's face it, the story was slow, even for me.This is probably the best book in this series yet because it really reflects what the series tackles. While other novels out there are all about how two characters met and found love, the series not only shows how they started but also answers the "what happened then" question. I would like to say that this is the peak of their relationship, but I can't say that since there's still a fourth book in my queue right now. Really looking forward to it.This review is also posted in my blog: http://bit.ly/1u43e0E

    Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...I received a copy of Two Bar Mitzvahs from Netgalley in exchange for my review.Having taken their relationship to the next level, Hannah and Cade seem to struggle to find the time to spend together. Between Invitation Only, Loading Zone and Sweet Dreams, the two of them are rushed off their feet. But more than that, someone seems to be messing with them and with their businesses, and the prime suspect is Cade's ex-girlfriend, Madison. With a double Bar Mitzvah coming up for a pair of twins, it becomes apparent that Invitation Only has to work alongside Madison at the country club, pushing another wedge betwen Hannah and Cade. Can they survive, or will their trust issues break them apart.Link to GoodreadsLink to amazonReasons why I love these books: The characters feel real, they have flaws and they show, the characters can be a bit weird at times, and the events do feel like they could happen. Oh don't forget the chemistry, the humour and the love between both Hannah and Cade, and the other characters. So basically; everything.When I first thought about my review I thought that I hadn't enjoyed Two Bar Mitzvahs as much as the first two book, No Weddings and One Funeral, but then I thought about why. I thought it was because things hadn't gone all that well for Hannah and Cade, which was when I realised I had enjoyed the book as much as the other two, I was just too emotionally involved with the characters (the more I read the more I want to be Hannah). So because things hadn't gone 100% well for the couple, I felt bad.Hannah is an amazing character, I feel like I can really relate to her, particularly because of her love of baking and her fear of commitment, but also because of the little things, like setting fire to marshmallows (which I do! It makes them so much better!) and making the snapdragons sing (which I don't do). It is the little details like that that make her so real to me, and for that I have to commend the authors who heartedly, it is difficult to get the balance between the pace and the little details about the characters, but they managed.The relationship between Cade and Hannah had moved up a notch in this book. Whereas before there was sexual tension they weren't acting on, now there was tension that they were acting on, and it really added to their relationship. I like how it took time for them to get there, and the way that it took trust to get there, making their relationship far more believable. I also absolutely LOVED the way Cade said 'I love you', I felt that it was totally in character and wasn't sprung out of the blue.I'm excited to see what happens next, I've fallen in love with the characters, and not just Cade and Hannah, but the rest who I don't seem to have mentioned much! This series is a definite must read, its funny, sexy and real!

    I received an ARC copy through NetGalley to review.This was simply beautiful! Kat and Stone Bastion know how to write a fantastic love story. Cade and Hannah have fully submerged themselves in their relationship. They are out in the open about their relationship, business is booming for them and they are enjoying life. Things go astray with the return of Selfish Bitch bka Madison -- the ex that dumped Cade. She is back with a vengeance to reclaim her life with Cade and pulls out all the cards messing with his business, his girl and his mind. I love how Cade handled Madison's advances and challenges. He paid her no mind to her drama. He tried to avoid everything that she did. He was the perfect boyfriend in this case. Madison was just off her rocket. Finding out that she had issues and what went down with her ex in Europe I felt bad for her, but at the same time I totally wished Hannah would have kicked her on her ass. Hannah sort of pissed me off when she ran off after witnessing Madison's advance on Cade. She should have tore her a new hole. I did love how strong Hannah remained throughout the drama though. She was strong in her relationship.The character development in this story is just beyond impeccable. It is refreshing to see two "damaged" people learn to move forward with their lives and start a true relationship. Kat and Stone Bastion have taken great detail and backstory's of their characters and the story-line. I find myself engrossed in the story, reading through it quickly and enjoying every word written in it.Cade and Hannah are truly perfection as a couple. I can't even explain how much I adore them. They are fun, work extremely well together, are like-minded and have bomb sex. They are just amazing and I can't wait to see what's in store for them next! I hope marriage and babies.

    This third book in the NO WEDDINGS series is filled with love, angst and sex. Cade Michaelson has been courting Hannah for five months. Bit of them have had a super hard time beginning a relationship, because they has bad break-ups in the past. Hannah was jilted at the altar and Cade learned of his girlfriend's infidelity on he night he proposed--also Valentines Day. So they took it really slow and built a solid friendship before going further.In this book they have just begun dating, for real, and life is, well, complicated. Both Hannah and Cade are working long hours, and the separation is problematic. Especially when Cade's ex, Madison, turns up in his life.Maddison claims to want Cade back, says she's in therapy for sex addiction, and will stop at nothing to get Cade to give her another chance. Even stalking. Even corporate sabotage. Even setting Cade up so he looks bad in front of Hannah.Thing is, Cade has promised to talk to Hannah about all his interactions with Madison, and, yeah...he doesn't. He gets busy, and preoccupied, and back-burners all this until Hannah is beside herself with fear and betrayal.It causes more than friction, and rings the gong of complacency right in Cade's ears. This third book really addresses the middle ground of a relationship--the part when the wooing settles into "see you when I can." I was pretty surprised how little time Cade spent with Hannah. He seemed to live on the couch at her cupcakery in the first two books, so his absence was a real conundrum. Now that they worked through their issues, however, I expect a lot more hands on/caramel time in book four.I liked it! Lots, and not only because there's a whole lot of passion. Cade learned a lot about being both a partner, and a lover. He did a good deal of growing up in this episode. Plus, he's just a good dude.I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.

    Romantic Comedy that is sexy, witty and simply done right!Kat and Stone continue to shine with their brilliant third book in the No Weddings Series. Two Bar Mitzvahs starts off right where One Funeral leaves you, my favorite part of that book. (No spoilers here). Cade tells this story in a way that only Cade can. I love reading his charming, witty and sexy POV.Hannah and Cade continue to nurture their relationship and have taken it to the next level. Their relationship as well as their businesses continues to grow. As in the previous books, friends and family continue to support them and play significant roles in their lives both personally and professionally. Party planning for two Bar Mitzvahs proves to be quite a challenge for them. A blast from Cade’s past enters the picture. Yes, Madison, AKA “Selfish Bitch” is back and has her own agenda when it comes to Cade. This interruption in their lives causes concerns and problems both personally and on the business end as well. Trust is tested.Hannah shows off her tough side and Cade learns a lesson on the importance of communication. Relationships take work and they both experience this in this book.Warning, steamy sexy scenes and Cade… continue to make this another fantastic read for this dynamic writing duo.I look forward to reading the final book in this spectacular series, and hope that my predictions for this cast of characters I love so much, comes true.This book is a 5 star read and one that I highly recommend. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. And, trust me, you will never look at condiments the same way again.

    Cade & Hannah are back and once again Cade is telling the story!! May I just go over once again how much I LOVE stories from the male POV?! It's so damn awesome and I love being inside Cade's headspace as I'm reading the story- it brings such a new dimension to the relationship and story line! I am loving how Cade & Hannah's relationship keeps evolving. These two have come so far since book one that it amazes me. The courage that Hannah has putting her trust in Cade and how Cade has become a better person. These two have made amazing stride personally and in their relationship. But just as things seem to be on the right track and going smoothly here comes a big ugly twist! Invitation Only is being sabotaged and Cade's ex has mysteriously popped back into the picture for what is the long haul. Okay I'm going to rant a minute: Uggh!! May I just say that "Selfish Bitch" is a super apt term and I absolutely hate her!! No amount of extra story involving her made me feel even remotely sorry for her or like her even a little bit more! And end rant! Okay so with all the sabotage and with Selfish Bitch Cade and Hannah have to come to grips with moving their relationship forward among all the chaos. They actually did an admirable job for awhile and then thing started to get sticky. And without giving too much away let me just say I was holding my breath, wanting to smack Cade, and then sighing with relief!! Woo!! OMG! And the frosting fight totally happens!! :) I've already pre-ordered Three Christmases and can't wait for it to get here! I'm hooked on Cade & Hannah!

    Where to start with this book.. Was it my favorite? No, but let me explain why. At times I thought this book moved a lot slower than the first two books. It picked up for the about the midway point and kept you flipping pages.Do I still love Cade and Hannah? After this book, HELL YES!In Two Bar Mitzvahs you get to see Cade and Hannah’s relationship and love for each other grow more and I love their friendly banter back-and-forth, their wise cracks to each other, but most of it is how they relate to each other when they are together. It’s like they are one person and read each other’s minds and feelings at times. Two Bar Mitzvahs takes them through a really tough period in your book and your get to see Cade at his lowest point and it broke my heart. But in the end they realize that they can’t live and survive with each other, because it is like they are missing their other half.Their love survives and grows stronger because of everything that they have to go through in this book.My favorite part of the book, other than the ending, is when your see them spend time at Cade’s parents’ house and the tour that Cade takes Hannah on while there. It shows Hannah more about Cade’s life prior to her and why he is such the wonderful man that he is.Can you tell that I love Cade a lot or what? I love him and his devotion to Hannah.Looking forward to getting my hands on the next book which will be Three Christmases and it is due out November 17, 2014.**ARC received from Kat Bastion and NetGalley for an honest review**

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.So I was really excited to open this book again, and even more exciting is the fact that Cade's narrating again. I have to say that he is easily my favorite character in this series and I always enjoy his perspective. Mostly because I like the fact that he is male and is narrating the whole book. It's unique or at least unique to me and I always enjoy hearing his thoughts and seeing how they might differ from mine.Two Bar Mitzvah's starts off where One Wedding left off. Or at least for the most part it does. It was good in a way that it did so because than we could just continue on where we left off.Well the plot wasn't entirely unique many of the smaller details were. Such as Madison's addiction. That was definitely not where I thought this book would go and it was certainly a shocking thing when it happened. Although to be fair it's a valid addiction. Just not one that many people hear about a lot and it was very shocking because it was far from what I thought it would be.I fell even more in love with both Cade and Hannah throughout this book and the character growth was amazing. I enjoyed Two Bar Mitzvahs and it was a marvelous addition to the No Weddings series. It is being released on October 20th, and you should be sure to check out both Two Bar Mitzvahs and the rest of the No Weddings series.Find this review and many more at Reading Shy With Aly

    After the final scene in One Funeral that released all of that tension that had built up, here in Two Bar Mitzvahs you're not going to see things just relax and characters become complacent. Because there's always your past ready to come bite you in the ass.Hannah and Cade just cannot get enough of each other (if I was her, I wouldn't be able to get enough of Cade either), so when you see that "scorching" warning regarding the 18+ scenes, take it to heart...because your reading device just might melt this time around. You're going to get plenty of steamy action, all very tastefully done-and it will leave you looking for your significant other by the time you are through.Everything in this story makes you fall more and more for Cade and Hannah. They are so sweet together, so undeniably perfect for each other, and work tirelessly for their relationship-even when Cade's past decides to rear it's nasty head. Or should I say HER nasty head.But watching the two of them work through everything, with humor and with seriousness, seeing all the drama unfold and how they still make their way back to each other...the two of them are actually inspiring together. Although I don't agree with how Cade was handling his past for most of the story (I don't want to say more so I don't spoil anything for anyone else).5 dramatic stars for Two Bar Mitzvahs, a sure bet if you're looking for an amazing series so be sure to start from the beginning.

    ARC provided by publisher via NetGalleyThis series just keeps getting better and better! This one picks right where One Funeral ended, but this time we’re given Cade’s POV once again and I couldn’t have been happier. I’ve read many male perspectives in books, but Cade is one of my favorites, there’s something about his thoughts that feel a little more realistic than most. Cade and Hannah are finally in an established relationship and things are going smoothly for them, until an unexpected blast from Cade’s past enters the picture. This story kept me on my toes; I never knew what was going to be thrown at this couple next or how things would get handled. Each of their reactions to situations, whether right or wrong, are very realistic, making me love them both even more. While there are struggles for Cade and Hannah in this book, we still get their easy and sexy banter. There’s a perfect balance between the drama these two face and the romance and humor I’ve come to love. I will say Two Bar Mitzvahs was the first in the series that I felt certain scenes were rushed and jumped from thing to thing too quickly. At times I would have liked the pacing to slow down just a bit, but otherwise this is a wonderful addition to the series, possibly even my favorite thus far!

    I have loved this series since the start, and this was definitely not a disappointment. We once again pick up where the previous story ended, only this time we get Cade's POV which lets face it, is amazing! There are many laugh out loud moments, some hot sexy time and this time around my heart broke a little. Thankfully Cade mended it right up for me though. He is just as amazing in this book, despite the drama, as the first two and Hannah is her normal spunky yet reserved self. I have found I just connect with these characters so easily and I can tell you to pick up book 3 in a series and still feel that connection to the characters is a rarity. Kat and Stone bring us stories that warm the heart, put smiles on our faces, and make us think of naughty things that can be done in dark corners, and with some condiments...You need to add this to your TR list, but start with No Weddings and work your way through. I am excited to see how this relationship will continue to grow with relatable issues that the normal among us can easily connect with.

    Sometimes a man knows when to let his girl rest, "she turned and snuggled her sexy a** back into me. I groaned. My c*** stiffened further, aching. And it had nothing to do with morning wood. But even though I wanted to bury myself balls deep back into Hannah, I only pulled her closer, held her tighter." Cade has literally hit the jackpot in girlfriends, "what a lucky effer I was. I had a great girl who liked hanging with the guys. A girl who liked being on of the guys when the table talk turned...well, guy." Cade has no issues watching his girl pee in the woods, "I crossed my arms, holding the light just away from directly blinding her. "Hey, I've watched you do all kinds of things. Peeing is a fact of life. I'm only here to protect you." I really loved Cade's playful side, "I smacked her a**, then kissed her deep and slow. "When the public party ends, our private party will begin." I loved seeing Hannah and Cade again, seeing what they're up too, and how they work out their problems. These two are definitely not a boring couple.
