No Weddings by Kat & Stone Bastion Giveaway & Excerpt

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.

Excerpt 6

Player Cade first meets Ice Queen Hannah…

I made my way toward my sister and Hannah through the crowd. The last of Ben’s words echoed and twisted in my head while I stared at Hannah. I’m sure she tastes as good as she looks.
As I approached them, my focus remained on Hannah Martin, whose features had been pulled straight out of my fantasies: wavy dark hair, expressive eyes, pouty lips, and mouthwatering curves.
On the edge of my awareness, Ben raised his beer high as he finished his speech. “Enjoy the celebration. Drink, dance, eat cake, and tell all your friends about Loading Zone.”
A thumping bass rhythm began to vibrate through the room as I once again dragged my gaze from Hannah’s high heels, up her shapely legs, to the bottom hem of a black dress that clung to every curve, dip, and gorgeous swell.
My gaze lifted to her face and locked with hers right as I stepped within talking distance. Happily caught in the act, I smirked.
Hannah’s expression hardened, eyes narrowing.
Okayyy. Clearly she didn’t like a man appreciating the assets she’d put on proud display.
I glanced at my sis as she took a sip of a frozen strawberry daiquiri. She was just now turning my way, oblivious to the frosty reception I’d gotten.
“Cade!” Kiki side-lunged into me, giving me a half hug. “Have you guys met yet? Hannah, this is my brother, the one I’ve been telling you about. Cade, this is Hannah, the baker from my art class.”
I reached a hand out toward Hannah, but instead of shaking it, she crossed her arms over her chest and gave me a curt nod.
The one I’ve been telling you about? I wondered what Kiki had said about me.
Setting my jaw, I pulled my hand back.
When one of our waitresses rushed by, I stopped her with a gentle hand on her forearm. “Hey, Jillian, do you have a drink menu?”
“Sure, boss. I mean, Cade.” Jillian smiled and gave me a slim menu from her pocket before continuing on toward the bar.
“Would you like a drink?” I held out the laminated list of specialty drinks to Hannah.
Her gaze drifted down. She glared at the menu like it had teeth and might bite. After a sigh, she unlocked one of her folded arms and took it from me.
Kiki glanced around the room. “You two good? I’m going to find Mom and Dad.”
I nodded behind me. “Try the bar. Everyone was back there a few minutes ago.” Everyone being our parents, our other two sisters, and a few close friends.
I stood alone with Hannah, who now wore glasses balanced low on her nose. The librarian look did nothing to mar her beauty. If anything, it enhanced it.
“See anything you like?” Loaded question. I know.
She shrugged, glancing up from the menu to give me a hard stare. Taking her time, she scanned her gaze down my body, then shot it back up to my face and tilted her head. She handed the menu back to me before crossing her arms once again.
“Not really.”
Oh, so that’s how it is.
Hannah Martin was a contradiction in the flesh. Tempting cleavage swelled over a low neckline, guarded behind crossed arms. Her toned body was held rigid, her full lips pressed in a firm line.

Beautiful, but clearly unattainable.
