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.

I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
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 of Katelyn, Jack's sister and his best friend, Dean.
Definitely credit worthy! Enjoy!
Live, love, laugh...
This is a fluffy easy listen. It's ok but not a book I would listen to again. The first one was much better. I guess my issue is that the storyline is too fantastic. Katie is a Paris Hilton type character. She's a spoiled rich party girl who happens to get a baby in her doorstep (yeah right). The baby came with adoption papers and everything! The story of who the parents are, how the baby ended up with Katie and how she wants to quit party and socializing just to take care of the baby is unrealistic. The romance also didn't quite do it for me. This book is good if you get it on a good sale and want an easy listen while on vacation.
The story was fine until one of the characters talks about wanting to participate with Doctors Without Borders. The character asked if her job will give her time off to help, she is told her nurses union contract gives her two weeks off to help with disasters. The character then goes on to bash unions saying she wouldn't belong unless the state she lived in required it. How did union bashing belong in this storyline? Especially since the character was able to participate in something good because of her union. I worked at the nations largest retailer full time and didn't buy a single piece of clothing for over a year, ate bread covered in instant packet gravy to survive. I qualified for welfare but was to proud to apply for it. I lived in poverty until I got a union job. No need at all to bash.
The reason I didn't rate this book more highly might be because I listened to it right after listening to Not Quite Dating. I liked Jessie but I never really grew to like Katie.
No it has not. I really like romance based audiobooks and will probably continue in that genre.
I enjoyed Amy McFaddens voice and thought that she represented each character well with subtle differences in the way they spoke.
I liked that Katie was so dedicated to caring for Savannah but the real mothers explanation for giving her up seemed unrealistic.
I just love Amy McFadden! She just has this way of bringing all the characters to life thus the story. Yeah, this may have been a little out there but it's not completely out of the realm of possibility. But then again, I don't read/listen to this genre for realism. I read to escape and that's just what Cathrine Bybee has done for me. I look forward to Monica's story next.
A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook.
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. It's easy to connect with the very likeable characters who have obvious chemistry. Secondary characters add to the story.
Narrator okay, though better with female voice than male.
I love the charters..they were all so likable. I recommend the book to all readers that want to feel good after reading. I have enjoyed the entire series "No Quite " look forward to the next selection
I absolutely loved the 2nd novel in the "Not Quite" series. I listened to NOT QUITE MINE almost in one sitting. Bybee hit this novel out of the park. It has all the right ingredients -sizzling unrequited love that just won't simmer down, new family bonds that take sisterhood to a new level, and a mystery baby that, seemingly out of nowhere lands outside of the main characters penthouse suite. There is plenty of drama, steamy flirtation that definitely ends somewhere good. Its all good and I was inspired to pop on one of my Stetsons and pull on a pair of Tony Llamas before I got to the end.
NOTQUITE IS A GREAT SERIES AND BYBEE NEVER DISSAPOINTS. TEAMING WITH AMY McFadden AS NARRATOR IS TRULY A WINNING COMBINATION.
Not Quite mine is a cute second chance romance. It’s book 2 in the Not Quite Series by Catherine Bybee. Following his best friend’s wedding, Dean takes over the role of overprotective male in Katie Morrison’s life. His timing couldn’t be worse, since Katie returns home from the wedding to find a 2 week old baby on her doorstep. She devises a plan to hideout from her family and friends until she finds out the identity of the baby’s mother. However, there’s no hiding from Dean.
I found the premise to be completely implausible. The story is also a tad bit predictable. There was nothing shocking about the trajectory of this story. With that said, the book isn’t bad. It’s still entertaining. Fans of sweet second chance romances will love this. It’s a well written feel good story. The characters are well rounded and fleshed out. The real life situations they deal with are touching. I particularly enjoyed the evolution of Dean and Katie’s relationship.
The audiobook narration was pretty good, with the exception of the southern accents. The pace was great. My steam factor rating is 2/5 and overall rating is 3.25 Stars.
"The best so far"
I know that this is only the second book in the series, but to me, this is far better than its predecessor! The misunderstandings are far more plausible. And the resolution far simpler! I'm off to read book 3.
I've just 'discovered' this author, but have already listened to her 'Alliance' series and enjoyed those too!
If you enjoy having a story with your romance, this author delivers!!
