I wanted to try a new author (new for me) so I gave this story a shot. And what a pleasant surprise I got! I don't like to give spoilers so let's just..Show More » say this is a secret millionaire meets poor single mom. It's a cute interesting love story. It is set around Christmas time so it was extra special to listen to it during this time. I'm happy to see this is a series! I hope the next book is about Jessie's sister.
Narration: this is the first time I've listened to a book narrated by Amy McFadden and I was not impressed. She was just ok. She needs to really work on the male voices. Hopefully the next book in the series will have a different narrator.
Note: although this book has a less-than-desirable narration I still recommend it. Very cute contemporary romance story similar in style to Susan Mallery.
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 t..Show More »o 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!
Not Quite Enough, is the third book in Catherine Bybee's Not Quite series. So far, this installment is definitely my favorite. This contemporary roman..Show More »ce is about Monica and Trent.

They meet during difficult circumstances, something most people won't even imagine finding themselves in. There's an instant spark between them. Monica feels she isn't one for long term relationships, in fact she tends to end them before it becomes to serious. Sex is fine, love isn't for her.

Then one day they finally give in to the constant attraction to each other when suddenly they find themselves in a life in death situation. I really enjoyed this book, with its action adventure, great humanitarian effort, survival and to top it off a hot steamy and dramatic romance.......can't ask for much more!! Not Quite Enough is a good, captivating and engaging book.
I have hundreds of audible books but this is the first one I read by Catherine Bybee. I'm pleased that now I have a new author that I really like. Wha..Show More »t I enjoyed the most was that the characters were very well developed, believable and likeable. The plot wasn't overdone. It was a very enjoyable read. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could give half stars. There were a couple of situations that were just a little unbelievable, but the fact that there were only a couple is really surprising. I recommend it and look forward to reading more by this author. The narrator is right on. She did a fantastic job with male and female voices. That's important to me.
This was very good. I’ve read about 20 of Catherine Bybee's books and I’ve really liked all her series’. I especially liked the Weekday Brides. ..Show More »r/>This was the story about Mary and “player” Glen who dated while he lived in the east coast and Mary lived on the west. Glen was filthy rich, had his own charter planes and was a pilot, so he flew to her or flew her to him. I, for one, love books about the rich and the crazy ways they spend money. TOTALLY the opposite of how I live so that makes it all the better. Also, I love that Ms. Bybee’s heroes and heroines are both beautiful, instead of making the heroine too plain or too plump and pairing her with a god-like hero. That’s the main reason I’ve read so many of her books.
The incredible love that grew between Glen and Mary was amazing AND the last 30% of the book was very exciting. The bad guy took Mary hostage and when Mary got him talking I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him. He had a sad backstory.
I also loved the other players: Walt and Dakota, Monica and Trent, Mary Frances, and Jason.
There was passion and explicit sex in this book and the F-bomb was used 13 times.
As to the narration: Love, love, love Amy McFadden. Great voices and awesome emotions.
