    Another great offering by Catherine Bybee! Even though we got to

    Another great offering by Catherine Bybee! Even though we got to know Jack Morrison's sister Katelyn in Not Quite Dating, we get a much deeper look into her new life in Not Quite Mine.


    While she used to be a party girl that was splashed across every tabloid and newspaper around, Katie has decided it's time to get a real job and start growing up. Going to work for her brother is the first step in that journey, however part of beginning her new job, is the reality she is going to be in close proximity to the man she's always been in love with, and thought she was over, her brother's best friend Dean Prescott. But Dean is just the beginning of the obstacles that Katie is going to have to maneuver when a newborn baby girl is left on her doorstep with nothing more than a diaper bag, a birth certificate, and an anonymous note.

    Bybee takes the reader on quite the adventure as Katie's new sister by marriage, Monica, helps her hide the secret of her surprise motherhood as she tries to find out who the babies biological mother is and why she left her, all while doing her best to elude a snooping Dean.

    It's hard not to fall in love with these characters from the beginning and hope that they all get the happily ever after that both Katelyn and Dean have always dreamed of. This is a great read and one I would recommend to anyone!

      Katie and Dean had been friends since high school.  Katie alwa

      Katie and Dean had been friends since high school.  Katie always had a crush on Dean but it wasn't until after high school that they began to date. Secretly of course. It wouldn't do for Katie's dad and brother to find out.  They were both privileged   kids, their parents wealth well established, and as such they wanted to keep this to themselves.  No media stories. No friends feeling guilty, if they broke up, about who to invite to their parties.  As suddenly as it began it ended.  Katie then got the reputation of being a wild child. Sleeping around, traveling and parties were on her nightly agenda.  Dean, meanwhile, nursed a broken heart for more than one reason.  Now they've got a second chance, will they take it?




         This is a wonderfully crafted story about a wealthy spoiled girl and her sudden need to grow up.  Love the characters and their personalities really shine through.  You'll laugh and you'll sigh as you read this book.  An easy read, Catherine Bybee has done a terrific job of keeping the characters true to the first book in the series.  This is a keeper!! 




         I found no issues with this one.




         I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I couldn't put it down. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

    Much like the first book Catherine has setup a perfect coupling

    Much like the first book Catherine has setup a perfect coupling with her characters. I absolutely love her style with her characters and the arcs that they go through. This story is just as good as the first in the series, it doesn't fall victim to the curse of the sequel at all.

    I LOVE Katie and Dead, and it's great how they were briefly introduced in the first book and now you get to see some of their story. Catherine so knows her characters, you can just feel them speaking into her ear and her writing down their story as they tell it to her.

    The story is one of love and the conquering the different aspects of falling for a man while Katie has desperately fallen in love with baby Savannah. Catherine doesn't write a how to keep a baby found on your doorstep, instead she focuses on the story and her characters.

    Catherine has done the magic again with this one and I hope she write a ton more books in this series! I cannot wait!
