Three Christmases by Kat & Stone Bastion 

three christmases

As the holiday season approaches in this fourth book in the No Weddings Series, Cade Michaelson strives to be better at balancing work and love, and Hannah Martin’s growing ability to trust is put to the test.

Lust and friendship brought us together, but with the increasing demands of my two businesses, Hannah’s thriving bakery, and our successful event-planning company, stability becomes my focus.

Then a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity takes me to the West Coast, and everything goes into a tailspin.

Laughter, love, and excitement fill our lives, but Cade refuses to settle into the wonderful bliss we’ve found—he wants spectacular fireworks and an unshakable foundation. Driven like no one I’ve ever met, Cade insists a dream job across the country will be better for our future together, but I worry about whether we can survive the present apart.

When intimate time diminishes…and lives get more hectic…

Will a little bit of faith be all that it takes? Or will the sacrifice to get there be too great?


My Review

First of all, I want to start with this, “The No Weddings Series has to be one of my top favorite series this year!”   Hannah and Cade are up there in my favorite couples category too.   This series has made me smile, laugh, worry, swoon and smile again and again.  Reading this last book in the series was bittersweet for me.  I had my own idea of how I wanted this spectacular series to end but Kat and Stone’s idea was better.  And, I truly loved it.

The story of Cade and Hannah is one that I admire.  Throughout these four books, their relationship has developed, intensified and thrived.  This last book presents new challenges for the couple.  Of course, these challenges are what makes these characters so real.  Life isn’t always perfect.  Obstacles once again blur their future.  Hannah deals with meeting her father and Cade deals with a promising business opportunity.  Both of their lives become more complicated but their love, even with this new long distance hurdle remains strong.

Just like in the other three books, the sisters and their party planning business remain part of their lives.  In this book, three unique Christmas parties are in the works.  I have enjoyed the party planning since it has brought so many entertaining moments to this series.

This book is written in both Hannah and Cade’s point of view, so getting inside each of their minds has been a sweet treat.  Their sexy banter along with Cade’s ….. sexy as fuck, well you know, use of condiments  (And, if you don’t, get to it! Read this series NOW!) continues making this another 5 star read.  Be prepared for funny moments too.  Dressing rooms and closets can be quite interesting.

It was wonderful to read and witness how this couple grew from that first party when Hannah was just the “Ice Queen and Cade was a player.

“Last New Year’s. I’d been a player who’d had girls’ numbers on a sticky note list, a damaged man who’d buried himself into business and accomplishment just to be able to wake up each morning.  This New Year’s approached, and I’d become a changed man, all because of one Ice Queen baker who’d melted my heart.”

Well, I am not going to give away the ending but I have to tell you, It is soooo good!  Cade never ceases to amaze me and is indeed an amazing planner. Swoon…

“Why’d you toss out your rule?”

Rolling halfway onto her, I gave her a lazy smile. “You are the exception to every rule.”

Cade’s sisters are awesome.  I would love to read more about them in the future.

Three Christmases is a 5 star read!

Congrats again to this dynamic writing duo on a marvelous series!

I can’t wait to read the novella, For Valentine’s.

5 stars
