This is the first book in the No Weddings series. They do need to be read in order.
Cade and his three sisters have started an event-planning business with a few rules – no dating the “help” and no weddings are two of the unusual ones. The “no weddings” rule is because Cade has been crushed by love and no longer encourages it. Instead he’ll stick to women willing to indulge in no-strings-attached sexual encounters. One of his sisters suggests Hannah as the new baker for their group. Hannah is an artist using buttercream icing and cake as her medium. Dubbed the “Ice Queen” by Cade the first time he meets her, he is disconcerted to find himself drawn to her and determined to break through that wall of ice to find the woman beneath. Can he pursue the woman without upsetting their business arrangement…and what about the rules?
I loved the story. The premise and the characters are intriguing and fun. I found this to be an easy, comfortable read, except for some repetitiveness, with just the right touch of angst. Cade is a rake with a heart of gold and it was fun watching his own walls crumble, too. There were more than a few laugh-out-loud moments. It’s a good thing my friends and family have gotten used to my sudden outbursts while staring at the kindle screen!
I love the titles in this series and I definitely want to read more.
