Her life is missing the love… When Katelyn “Katie” Morrison attends her brother’s wedding, the glamorous hotel heiress wonders if she’ll ever find “the one”… especially when she sees her sexy-as-sin ex, Dean Prescott. After the nuptials, she’s shocked to discover an infant girl on her doorstep. Deciding to keep the baby until she can locate the mother, Katie doesn’t have the time – or energy – for Dean’s suspicions. But she still can’t shake the longing she feels for him.

While attending his best friend’s wedding, Dean can’t stop staring at Katie’s sinful curves. He swore he’d never repeat the mistake of falling for her. Learning that Katie has a newborn, Dean knows there’s more going on than Katie admits… just as he knows their attraction hasn’t faded. But when he and Katie uncover the identity of the baby’s mother, they may lose their second chance at love.

-My Thoughts-

Not Quite Mine is the 2nd book in the Not Quite series by Catherine Bybee. I read book two before the first book, Not Quite Dating. While you can read each book in the series as a stand alone, I recommend starting with book one first.

Katie Morrison is a pampered, Texas hotel heiress to the Morrison Hotels. She loves tight mini skirts, the spotlight, and has had her share of dates. All of that comes to a screeching halt when a sweet baby girl (Savannah) is left on her doorstep. Katie has been yearning for a baby, and it the abandoned baby girl seems to be a godsend.

Dean Prescott is Katie’s ex, and the lead building contractor for the Morrison Hotels. He has been asked by his best friend, Mike (Katie’s brother) to watch over Katie while he is out of town. Dean knows that something is up with Katie, and he sets out to find out exactly what it is.

I chose to listen to book one first because of the whole ‘baby left on a doorstep’ thing, and blurb sounded good. The story moved along quickly, and there were a few misunderstandings, and a whole lot of fireworks between Dean and Katie. There is a little mystery as to who baby Savannah’s mother is, but I guessed who it was about half way through the book.

I enjoyed this book, and the friendships between Mike, Dean, Katie, and Monica. There was some steam in this book, and the chemistry between Katie and Dean was palpable. I love a story where everyone gets their happy ever after, and this one did. Even though there were a few moments where I thought, ‘tell him already!’ We weren’t kept in the dark too long.

I am not sure how many men in Texas are actually like Dean, but I am sure there are a few. The story was mostly believable, but the wonderful thing about fiction romance is that it can be larger than life.

I wasn’t to sure about the narrator, Amy McFadden, at first, but after listening to the first chapter she grew on me and I realized that she was a perfect choice for this story. She has the Texas drawl down pat.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a touching, and fun romance read.

Happy Reading!
