Kiki Michaelson wants one wild night to forget her starving-artist worries. Simple.

Only instead of Darren Cole becoming her one-night stand, he taunts her with a challenge. Then while she’s trying to best him at his own game, he turns out to be the last thing she’s prepared for: someone she wants to keep.

Which means all he can ever be…is a friend.

Darren Cole never allows a girl to get close—not close enough to matter.

Then storms in Kiki Michaelson, a beautiful, fearless temptation that rocks his world off-balance. But he fights their attraction, unwilling to gamble something physical with their close ties. Until the passionate sculptor exposes her heart and breaks his wide open.

In that moment it becomes clear: she could never be just a friend.

Sometimes what you run from…is exactly what you need.

***HEARTBREAKER is a standalone, full-length new adult romance told in dual POV. Due to mature themes and adult language, this book is for those 18 and older.***

I read the No Weddings set and Heartbreaker in a week. I love the characters. Their situations were real, emotions real. Real life in a real way. Looking forward to the next book. Wish they could write faster.

I had no idea what to expect from Heartbreaker. I've not heard of the Bastion writing team and I've obviously been missing out. I'm not totally for sure how I could have missed out on them for so long but that will be quickly rectified because I'm very interested in what else they have out on the shelves right now. I was about halfway through the first page of this book and I was totally hooked. I found myself completely immersed in the book. And it was all because of the characters. The Bastions can write amazing characters. I was completely entranced with Kiki and Darren. I wanted more and more from each of them. The way that these two characters interacted was absolute perfection. The push and pull between them was captivating. Together, they created a beautiful love story that was almost sickeningly sweet. I don't know that I would change anything about them. However, I do wish that I had read the other series where Kiki and her siblings were involved because even though this was a standalone novel, that backstory would have been great to have. Guess it just means I'll have to read that series! So it sounds like I loved the story, so why the four star rating, right? There was just something missing in the plot for me. I'm clueless as to what it was. The book was good but it didn't pull me in. It didn't steal minutes away from me as I poured over the pages. It didn't demand my time and I really wanted it to. I wanted to be able to lose myself but I just couldn't. It was a little too easy to put down when I had things that I had to do and sure, it was equally as easy to jump right back into but I wanted to have to fight with myself to put Heartbreaker down when I needed to do something. I know, it sounds silly. Anyway, I don't know what could have changed within the pages to give me that escape. If I did, it sure would make it easier to pick out books in the future! This is a great book though. The romance is awesome and you'll just love Kiki and Darren together because I know that I did. * I received this novel in exchange for an honest review *

Heartbreaker is the first book in the Unbreakable series by Kat Bastion and Stone Bastion. Neither Kiki nor Darren want anything serious. They have too much going on in their lives, so they start as friends. I love romances that start as friendship even if that friendship is built on a whole lot of lust and bargaining. That just adds to the fun. *wink* The build up and anticipation made these characters irresistible. I appreciated Logan as well. She added some nice depth to the story. I really enjoyed these characters, and it made me want to read the No Weddings series by these authors which includes some of the characters from within this book. Heartbreaker by Kat Bastion & Stone Bastion was kindly provided to me by the authors for review. The opinions are my own.

I really loved this one!! Of course I fell in love with Kiki's character while reading the No Weddings series and I was doing a happy dance to finally have her story. I love the flow and writing style of Kat and Stone Bastion and hopefully we will have many more stories to read in the future. In this book we have Kiki Masterson, the wild, seemingly carefree, artistic Masterson sibling. She's finally had the strength to strike out on her own with her art but things haven't gone exactly as planned. What she wants now, no needs, is one crazy passionate night to forget her troubles and just let go. Darren Cole has troubles and responsibilities of his own. There is nothing he'd like more than to lose himself in Kiki. He's not convinced though that the once would be enough and that's all he has to offer. So instead of straining their working relationship he fights the physical attraction between them. How long can he hold it together??? This is one you want on your must read list. I highly recommend it.

Kiki and Darren work together. Her family owns a party planning company that has taken off and gotten bigger. Darren is a DJ who has so much going on in his life he has no room for love. Kiki decides one night that having a one night stand with him to get him out of her system is a good idea. He does not agree. He does not want to risk his job with her family. Darren has dreams he wants to achieve. He plans to move on and make more money. He has other priorities that Kiki does not know about. He keeps his private life private. When they choose to go running together and become friends, the lines start to blur. Can someone who makes your heart pound really be just a friend? Can they learn that love has room for other things to grow into it? Darren and Kiki must learn to make choices that put others first. I found this story to be so compelling that I nearly cried when I had to put it down. The characters are so moving and real. I loved the banter. These authors never let me down. ***This ARC was given by Netgalley and its publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Heartrending, passionate, and captivating! Heartbreaker is a riveting page-turner that will leave you breathless with raw emotions, and the need to hold tight to the ones you love! Kiki Michaelson wants a one-night stand. Nothing more. And she wants it with Darren Cole. But the Rolling Stones said it best: you can't always get what you want. A hidden secret prevents Kiki from wanting more. So she's willing to settle for being "just friends". Darren Cole doesn't allow himself to get close to anyone...let alone Kiki Michaelson, no matter how much he wants to. His past and responsibilities are more important than his needs. But when his responsibilities and desires collide, can Darren finally allow himself to live his own life?...or will his guilt and obligations override his wish for happiness? Heartbreaker pulled and pushed me in several different emotional directions. My heart broke for both Kiki and Darren, for what they've both endured. While Kiki's past leaves her apprehensive to trust another man with her heart, Darren would willing give his heart to her, only his past prevents himself the ability to do so. I felt frustrated with Darren, with his inability to live both his own life, and the role of caregiver to his sister. And Kiki...how she puts all men into one category. But as their relationship progressed, with a little help from their friends and family, my heart melted. I turned into a lovey-dovey, goo-fest over the romance shared between them. I laughed at the quirky banter between all the characters, and I cried for the real life circumstances thrown at them. This story gives you hope that happiness and love can still be found in the most dire of situations. Heartbreaker leaves you with the realization that love can be scary. It makes you take a blind leap of faith, trusting in the other to not let you fall. But if you do fall, you need to have the courage to get back up, dust yourself off, and try again. 5 Heartfelt Stars!
