Texas hotel heiress Katelyn Morrison finds herself playing mother to a baby abandoned outside her penthouse door the night of her brother's wedding. Katie didn't think she would be a mother, she finds herself in California relying on her brother’s sister-in-law and her brother’s best friend (and her ex) Dean Prescott to help her while she waits for a private investigator to track down the birth mother.
I liked Katie and could sympathize with her need to not only make sure she could keep Savannah, but also her fear that she may end up just like her mother. She may have been a spoiled socialite when she was younger, but she stepped up and became the kind of person she wished her mother had been for her.
Dean was likable as the hero. You wanted him to win Katie over and prayed he would accept Savannah. I loved his big Texas swagger and how he knew when to be the alpha male that needed to protect what was his and when to let that go and be the sweet, caring man Katie needed.
The story was enjoyable, with both sweet and hot, sexy moments. The characters are likable, but they don’t take you on an emotional rollercoaster, despite the storyline and the possibilities the author could have taken with it. Not Quite Mine is a great summer read, when you want to read something that won’t tear you apart.
Katelyn Morrison has always gotten what she wanted. But when she left the only man she ever loved, she doubted she’d ever get her happily ever after with children and a loving husband. But at her brother’s wedding she not only crosses paths with Dean, she finds a baby outside her penthouse door. Desperate to make sure she can keep Savannah, Katie will enlist the help of the few friends she has in California, including Dean. She finds she just might get a second chance at having that family she always wanted.
From New York Times, USA Today, and WSJ best-selling author of Wife by Wednesday, comes the second novel in her delightful, delicious Not Quite trilogy.
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.
