Product Description

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.***

Read On Behalf Of A Book Lover’s Emporium Book Blog

Where the hell have I been and why have I not read anything from these two? That’s about to change after reading Heartbreaker. I loved this book! It was extremely well written and I literally read it from start to finish. As a matter of fact, I stayed up until 5 am reading. I needed to know how Darren and Kiki’s love story was going to end!

I loved how this book was told from both Darren and Kiki’s point of view, alternating chapter to chapter. Brilliant. We knew what they were thinking and feeling from chapter to chapter. THANK GOD! Because there were moments I wanted to shake both of them and say “Look! Look what is right there in front of you!” Ahhhh the torture. But that’s what makes a romance gripping, right? Trust me, I was gripped!

God I love Darren so much. He’s a protector and such a good guy. He’d do anything for the ones he loves. He’s sexy and super sweet. And he’s hilarious. What more could you want in a book boyfriend?! He checks off all the boxes! I need him in my life!

I was cheering for Darren and Kiki from the beginning. Even though they fought their undeniable attraction, I just knew they HAD to be together. Just had to! Wow. Every time they were together I could feel the chemistry! I’m pretty sure I witnessed sparks flying from my kindle. And the sparks hit me in all the right places! **fans self** So when things FINALLY picked up with these two. Whoa. Let me just say, I felt hot all over. I adore these two!

Heartbreaker is a wonderful story that captivated me from beginning to end. I felt heartbreak and heart ache. It was funny and entertaining. Passionate and sexy. I fell in love with Darren and Kiki and the authors. Heartbreaker is an immensely beautiful story about giving yourself to someone you love, as long as YOU are whole and happy. And I was oh, so happy with this amazing book

4.0 out of 5 stars A chance at happiness... 22 December 2016
By Tbascoebuzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I liked the premise of this story of two people who are attracted towards the other but will not act on that attraction for their own tragic, personal reasons. I liked Kiki Michaelson up until she began groveling and throwing herself at Darren Cole...the object of her desire. I dunno, I'm just not drawn to women who lower themselves to chasing after guys who aren't interested in them...or act like they're not interested, yet the woman persists. They quickly lose my respect. Kiki is gorgeous with her long, curly black hair and electric blue eyes framed by thick black lashes. She always has a ready smile. She comes across as strong but her vulnerability and painful past is hidden behind her bravado. I began liking Kiki again, when she stopped groveling around Darren...when her strength(s) began to bloom.

I liked and appreciated the slow boil that built between Kiki and Darren. I mean, it wasn't until 60% into the story before they even kissed for the first time! And while that might seem too slow for some readers, it worked in this instance. I love erotica, but this was just refreshing. That is, establishing boundaries and letting a friendship grow naturally into more. Their flirtatious banter was fun to read. I liked how Darren Cole politely turns Kiki down when she first propositions him, even though he wants her too. He stays true to his personal responsibilities. I grew to love this guy, even though some of his actions were sophomoric. That is, dredging up excuses to be around Kiki all the time...torturing himself, when he knows he cannot follow through. He dances around this girl who is forbidden to him...yet he continues to tempt himself.

Character details trickle in as you read. There are no ages given until ch. 22...half way through the book. I was left muddling through this story wondering how old our protagonists were...distracting my reading and slowing me down. Hate that. In the end, I grew to love both main characters. I loved how guarded and cautious Darren was, but for different reasons. Just like Kiki, he stops people from getting too close to him...he doesn't let anyone in his world or near his heart. The downside is that there was no turmoil or controversy until the last few chapters. There was no angst or drama and then kaBAM...tragedy hits and then things get worked out and then the story is over. This was a good story told very well. No editing issues...minimal adult language and love scenes are portrayed maturely with lots of steam. They never overpower the plot.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit Series From Kat & Stone... 23 March 2016

Katherine “Kiki” Michaelson knows what it’s like to have a broken heart. Now she plays it safe by keeping everyone at arms length and never letting them get too close.

Then there’s Darren Cole. Even though Kiki knows that he’s the one guy that she shouldn’t get involved with – she was never really big on taking advice.

Darren keeps his private life well under wraps and for good reason. Kiki has always been a temptation that he could never afford. But it’s getting harder and harder to not reach out and take what he wants. She’s the one that would be his greatest joy or his biggest regret. And together, they are going to find out which one.

It’s no secret that I’m a wild fan of anything created by Kat & Stone – and Heartbreaker is yet another sensational reason why. They have once again combined humour, heartache and triumph together with their unforgettable characters and plenty of signature Bastion heat to serve up one seriously captivating read!

You’ll laugh out loud, you’ll swoon and you’ll become a full-fledged member of the Michaelson family…

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow Burn Romance 22 March 2016
By Kimberly Addison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Kiki is an artist who is just looking for a quick hook up! Sex on a stick Darren seems to be just the ticket. Only problem? Darren doesn't want to be just a one night stand to his friends little sister, and Kiki doesn't want anything more. So, what do they do? They start of a friendship, and through that friendship they start to get to know each other and slowly realize that it can be more.

Both characters have personal issues and this keeps them from deepening their connection, I found that a bit frustrating at times. This book really started to drag for me, and I had a hard time finishing it. It's well written, and the characters are good, but the story line was tedious and at times not very believable. All in all a good book, and if you like slow burn romance, this is the book for you.
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect flow from its appetizing beginning, its emotionally hearty entrées, to its deliciously sweet end 23 March 2016
By Dal M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Reading a book by Kat and Stone Bastion is like eating one of the best meals of your life. It has the perfect flow from its appetizing beginning, its emotionally hearty entrées, to its deliciously sweet end.
“All I’m saying is, don’t fight it. Don’t be afraid of us. If we are meant to happen…just let it.”

Once burned by love, the only flame artist Kiki Michaelson allows close is the one she uses to forge her sculptures with. She keeps guys at a safe distance by only allowing one night stands until Darren Cole refuses her proposal and instead offers to be just friends. But while trying to outmaneuver him she lets down her guard and him inside, completely changing the game. Can she be brave enough to risk her heart or will she try to keep him in the friend zone?
“He wanted to be bossy? He wanted to pound the point of being “just friends” home? I would be the best friend he’d ever had. Of course, while I demonstrated my stellar friendliness, no harm in highlighting my best qualities: flirtatiousness, adorableness—sexiness.”

Often mistaken for the quintessential Heartbreaker, Darren Cole loves music and wants nothing more than to make it big as a drummer, it would make his life so much easier. His life is too complicated though, and bringing a woman into it is simply not an option until the lure of sassy, sweet Kiki Michaelson becomes impossible to ignore. Unwilling to reveal his secrets and lose the tenuous control he has over his life but also reluctant to let her go, he gives into a cautious friendship and the pretense of training her. But the more time he spends with her on and off running trails, the more he realizes she’s exactly what he needs. Can he convince her to take a chance on them?
“Kiki didn’t know it yet, but if she wanted to run from me? I would chase.”

After reading the author’s note and now knowing the dynamic writing duo have a musical background, I wonder what a song by them would sound like. Just like describing their books, words like delicious, enthralling, captivating, powerful and emotional come to mind. Even the titles for each chapter in Heartbreaker are both great and telling and could easily be song titles. Heck, some of them are! But until Kat & Stone announce they've branched out into music, I’ll plug the awesome Drag Rhythm Songs they’ve provided as a soundtrack and focus on their current book release.

As with their previous books, Heartbreaker has an alluring pace with its lyrical narrative, vivid depictions and sensuality that highlights the touching plotline about two reluctant kindred spirits that didn’t realize they were missing from each other’s lives and even fought against it.
“With the supercharged air—that wasn’t really the air—a spark ignited. White hot and glowing. Even if neither of us could see it, in spite of the fact that we didn’t want to admit it, we both felt it.

Every single character in the story was endearing. I loved having Cade and Hannah (from the No Wedding series) back and continuing their happy life together. Also, the rest of Kiki’s siblings and extended family who are incredibly loving and supportive add a great layer to the story, and even more so Logan who’s plight is sad, touching and real and made my heart ache.
“The best gift we can give those we love is ourselves—whole and happy. We have to let them breathe, let them live and make mistakes. And we need to live too. We owe it to ourselves and to them.”

Of course, the main plot centers on Kiki and Darren. I really liked Kiki with her strong independent, yet sweet vulnerable core. I loved how understanding and giving she was, how she wouldn’t take no for an answer when it came to Darren. And Darren doesn’t just have sex-on-a-stick good looks, he’s equally wonderful on the inside, putting with passion his family’s wellbeing first.
“Darren? Definitely delicious—delectable…decadent. Darren got all the best D words.”

The slow burn buildup between Darren and Kiki was enjoyably tempting and sultry while gradually revealing bits of each other. It was so fun to see Darren and Kiki try but fail miserably at being friends. Even if they could have ignored the snap, crackle and pop attraction, the bond between them only kept getting stronger with each text, run and interaction that peeled away a layer at a time until there was nothing else to do but take a leap of faith together and revel in the delicious rightness of their relationship.
“Something seemed to be happening between us, this thick unnamable thing growing more intimate with every heartbeat.”

Kat and Stone Bastion are wonderful story tellers, giving us a gripping romance with skillfully knit in drama and emotional depth. Heartbreaker is a standalone full length contemporary romance told from alternating points of view with a happy ending.
