Publisher's Summary

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.

Not quite as good as the first one...

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.

Great read and getting-better listen..


So, thanks to Hurricane Irma I’ve been without TV and Internet for 4 days. It was truly horrific AND I’m happy to say Irma turned and we weren’t hit that badly but prayers to those who were hit. That being said, I did finish Not Quite Mine, read another book and started another.

Let’s get down to this one, which I read in 2013. I love second chance romances and I’m happy to say I don’t give a darn if it’s believable or not. Believability IS NOT why I read romance! If I wanted believability I’d read fiction. I want the STORY: how they met, how long were they together, why did they break up and how long were they apart.

Dean and Katelyn’s story was fascinating and mysterious for a while, as they tried to figure out who left the baby on Katie’s doorstep, and why? And it was funny how she and Monica tried so hard not to let anyone find out about Savannah until Katie’s PI found out the truth of the whole thing. Who cares if what Katie and Monica did was legal or not? This is a book, not today’s front page news. It was a really great story and I enjoyed as much as I did Not Quite Dating, for the second time. Since I read the first two books in the Not Quite series I might as well read them ALL again.

There was explicit sex in this book and the F-bomb was released 9 times.

As to the narration: Ms. McFadden keeps getting better.

Delightful

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!

Ok

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

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.

Has Not Quite Mine turned you off from other books in this genre?

No it has not. I really like romance based audiobooks and will probably continue in that genre.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amy McFadden?

I enjoyed Amy McFaddens voice and thought that she represented each character well with subtle differences in the way they spoke.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I liked that Katie was so dedicated to caring for Savannah but the real mothers explanation for giving her up seemed unrealistic.

Any additional comments?

No

Language

The story line is good. I guess I will never understand using that kind of language. I will not be listening to anymore of Catherine Buber books.

Book 2 Was FABULOUS!!!

"Not Quite Mine" was simply FABULOUS!!! I love how Ms. Bybee bring her series together through each book. You're quite SKILLED in throwing some MYSTERY into your Contemporary Romance Novels and it works for you. I also appreciate the roles that you give to the females in your novels are strong and obtainable. Amy McFadden continues to give an OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE as the narrator. I feel she deserves a STANDING OVATIONS 👏👏 for her voice range for the many characters introduced in Book 2. It's an accomplishment not made by many. McFadden deserves more than 5-⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐s, but that's all I have to give. I definitely recommend "Not Quite Mine" to others, I know you would enjoy it! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Great Story

I really enjoyed this story. Sometimes laughing, sometimes sniffling I couldn't put it down. I liked that the main characters were featured in the previous novel. They seemed like old friends.

Second Chance & Baby Drop-off Story

Not Quite Mine is the second book in the Not Quite Series. It can be enjoyed as a stand-alone book but related characters are in previous and future books in the series. This is the same narrator from the first book in the series and she does a fine job with a wide cast of old and new characters in the story. Katie Morrison is the wild child in the Morrison luxury hotels family. She did get a college degree but prior to this book hadn't used it working. She plans to use her interior decorating skills at her brother, Jack's, new family oriented hotels. At Jack and Jessie's wedding, she runs into an ex-boyfriend, Dean. Dean is Jack's hotel contractor so he and Katie will be working together a lot. Katie and Dean had a secret relationship, got pregnant and then miscarried. Katie found out she is unable to carry a baby to term and breaks up with Dean without talking to him about it because she knows he wants a big family. Dean was heartbroken, had no idea why, and is keeping his distance from Katie even though he still cares for her. He thought he was heading toward marriage and family again when that woman broke it off with him too. The night of the wedding a baby shows up outside Katie's hotel room door. There is paperwork giving full custody to Katie. She has no idea whom the mother is it why she picked Katie. Video footage of the corridor doesn't show anyone coming or going. Katie wants to keep the secret from everyone so there is no chance of the baby being taken from her before they have some answers. Dean eventually finds out and helps Katie as they get closer to each other and baby Savannah. Over time their secrets break down and they actually talk (gasp....communication!) and sort out many of their misunderstandings. There are some surprise plot twists toward the end.

I enjoyed it.

But it wasn't as dramtic as i thought it could be. but i forgot that this series isn't that angsty. Mrs. Bybee manages to take serious matters and find a less angst way to work them out. Still enjoyed it though.

Nice but has problems

It’s a nice book, but relationship between Dean and Katie is rushed especially towards the end. The story is nice but it’s underdeveloped in parts, which could,be resolved if it was longer. Also, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the narrator.

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!!
