Sometimes you read a book that, in that moment, fits the mood you’re in perfectly. This was definitely the case with Not Quite Dating. Lately I’ve been reading books with so much angst, drama, and emotion in them that it was nice to switch to something a little lighter in tone. Not Quite Dating is a sugary sweet, easy read that makes you feel good. It’s straight romance, and refreshing in it’s simplicity. Jack is a billionaire heir to a large hotel empire who is growing weary of gold digging women. Jessie is a single mother working the grave yard shift at a local diner who has a past littered with poor “men” choices. She has a knack for attracting dead beat guys, and she is convinced that she will not make that mistake again.
Book Review: Not Quite Dating by Catherine Bybee
Catherine Bybee is the first author I found via my fancy new Kindle circa Since then I have upgraded Kindles twice but my love for the fun and pretty worlds Ms. Bybee creates has endured. It stands completely on its own and I was quickly re-introduced to the dreamy and wealthy Fairchild brothers.
Catherine Bybee’s “Not Quite Mine” is a delightful listen, as narrated by Amy McFadden. This is book two in the “Not Quite” Series, and another hit to add to her list, as she continues with the familiar characters of book one, developing more deeply into the lives .
Everyone knows that, including California transplant Rachel Price. But that doesn’t stop her from driving into the city. When she runs the charismatic and good-looking Jason Fairchild off the road, their immediate spark is met with bad timing. There is also one tiny little detail: Jason is her boss. And a woman as intelligent and dedicated to her career as Rachel knows not to date her boss. It’s both why she makes a great therapist and why she refuses to trust the average bachelor.
Staying fiercely independent has been her primary relationship strategy – until wealthy playboy pilot and commitmentphobe Glen Fairchild reappears in her life. After a yearlong teasing tug-of-war, Mary and Glen test the waters of attraction, only to find that their physical chemistry runs deeper than flirtation.
The down-on-her-luck single mom wants a complete do-over – is that too much to ask? With her family long gone from River Bend, strong, independent Mel is as surprised as anyone to end up in the quaint small town she once called home. But with her friends, Jo and Zoe, by her side, and a comfortable room at Miss Gina’s quirky bed-and-breakfast, she just might have turned the corner on a new life. But to her surprise, she finds a real-life hero when she meets a handsome emergency room doctor.
Not Quite Perfect by Catherine Bybee
July 21, Torn I really enjoyed this book. Jerry Showalter July 22, My Series Favorite My favorite book in the series, a sweet romance that leans toward chick lit. The story will make you smile with humor and sexy banter. Secondary characters add to the story. Narrator okay, though better with female voice than male.
Review: Not Quite Dating by Catherine Bybee. Posted February 1st, by Sara @HarlequinJunkie in Blog, Contemporary Romance, Review / 0 comments. Catherine Bybee has crafted the perfect rags to riches romance with Not Quite Dating!. Jack Morrison is also known to his friends as Moore, as in more women, more time, and more money, due to his families wealth.
When she runs the charming Jason Fairchild off the road, sparks fly. Too bad Jason is her new boss and dating him is out of the question. Determined to keep her distance romantically, the two dive into a friendship. Throw in a teenage ward that Rachel has taken on after the death of her best friend, and biological grandparents that seek custody; and this heart warming love story is bound to whisk you away. I purposely chose a winter month where I might be able to absorb what it felt like to be in the city when snow covered the ground.
That might sound silly for those of you who live in the city, but for me, a woman who has lived in Southern California since she was eighteen years old, I had no idea just how snow impacts day to day life. On the drive in from the airport, I was immediately struck by the bikes chained to posts and buried by snow. Trash piled up on the sidewalks would have to wait to be picked up until the thaw. It was astonishing to see. You see, I was on my way uptown, from downtown to meet with my agent.

Doing it Over by Catherine Bybee: Review
Good character development for her, somewhat so for him and you get a feel for how difficult her life has been. Maybe I need to believe more in that elusive “walks into the room and click” feeling that makes a guy lose his rationality to pursue a total stranger If you don’t do those kinds of stories, you won’t like this one. If you can get past that, the author does a great job of developing their friendship so that when they get to the will you part, you’re in.
I really liked all the characters involved in this story and felt like you really got to know everyone and of course want the best for them.
Not Quite Crazy is the sixth and final installment in Catherine Bybee’s Not Quite series and Bybee certainly saved the best for last! I have enjoyed every book in this series, but there was something about this one that hooked me from the outset and I didn’t want to put it ://
Borrowed, Kindle Unlimited Cover Description: When Jack Morrison—a sexy-as-sin, seemingly broke customer with a cowboy hat and a seductive grin—tries to flirt with her, she shoots him down. She doubts a carefree dreamer like Jack can provide the financial stability she needs. Yet with Christmas just weeks away, and Jessie not wanting to spend it alone, the charming Texan is proving hard to resist. As the heir to the Morrison luxury hotel empire, Jack is used to being fawned over.
But Jack needs someone who will fall in love with him—not his wealth. Read on for my thoughts on Not Quite Dating. No true spoilers, promise. Jack is tired of being wanted for his bank account or his family connections. Jessie is a struggling single mom. Jack and Jessie are actually perfect for each other.
