From New York Times, USA Today, and WSJ bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes the second novel in the delicious Not Quite series.
Gorgeous hotel heiress Katelyn “Katie” Morrison seems to have it all. But when she crosses paths with Dean Prescott—the only man she’s ever loved—at her brother’s wedding, Katie realizes there’s a gaping hole in her life. After the ceremony she gets an even bigger surprise: a baby girl left on her doorstep. Determined to keep the newborn until she learns who her mother is, Katie has her hands full and doesn’t need Dean snooping around…especially when his presence stirs feelings she thought were long gone..
Dean Prescott knows Katie is lying to him about the baby. He shouldn’t care what the woman who broke his heart is up to…and he most certainly shouldn’t still be aching for her. Yet Dean can’t ignore the need to protect Katie—or the desire to be near her every chance he gets. But when he and Katie solve the mystery surrounding the baby, their second chance for happiness could be shattered forever.

This is an erotic romance featuring a brother’s best friend and his sister. I will admit I am an absolute sucker for these kinds of stories having grown up with several brothers and crushed on many of their friends. This one is no different. Katie Morrison is a rich girl and former reality TV drama queen. She and Dean, her brother’s best friend, begin a passionate secret love affair that ends after a tragedy. They are together again in Jack’s, Katie’s brother, wedding. I fell in love with both characters from the beginning. They were both honest about wanting to be together and had off the charts chemistry.
Dean was determined to win Katie back. I was frustrated with Katie’s character because she was so challenged in her ability to communicate and made emotionally charged decisions based on abandonment issues from her past. This fit with her issues but I wish she would have opened up more often and sooner rather than later. Her fear of rejection was at the heart of the relationship problems. A beautiful baby girl left by her door complicates everything. Determined that this time would be different Dean’s perseverance pays off and they journey together to their happily ever after.
The plot had several twists on the predictable “”baby left at the door”” scenario. It kept my attention and the characters were very well- written and realistic. They weren’t perfect people with perfect families but they had strong bonds and the emotions were raw and real. I can’t wait for the next book in the series, but each book can easily be read as a standalone.
