The Not Quite Series, Book Four
Montlake Romance, Contemporary
November 04, 2014, First Edition
Paperback & Kindle

The touching and heartwarming fourth novel in the wildly popular Not Quite series from New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee.

Romance author Dakota Laurens believes that happily-ever-afters exist only between the covers of her sexy novels. But to her surprise, she finds a real-life hero when she meets a handsome emergency room doctor. The outspoken author feels an instant and intense attraction to Dr. Walt Eddy, and the feeling is mutual. When the globetrotting doctor pulls a disappearing act on Dakota, she’s prepared to write him off…until fate brings a blindsiding twist to her story.

Still scarred from a past tragedy, Walt may have disappeared on Dakota, but now he’s determined to win her back. For the first time in years, he knows he’s ready for a new chance at love. Yet between Dakota’s doubts and two sets of meddling parents, can the once-blissful couple finally create the bright, loving future they desperately want?


“Bybee’s magnetic fourth Not Quite contemporary proves that romance can happen in the most unlikely places... The love scenes are sizzling and the multi-dimensional characters make this a page-turner. Readers will look for earlier installments and eagerly anticipate new ones.”
–Publishers Weekly

Jewelz Review~
This most recent installement in the "Not Quite" series is a gem. I thoroughly enjoyed the fast pace along with the twists & turns of Walt & Dakota's relationship. It was a joy to see Monica and Trent - their generosity and genuine goodness warms my heart. Mary was the perfect quintessiential BFF to Dakota. I'm hoping that another "Not Quite" book telling the story of Mary & Glen is in the works ;)

Walt & Dakota's story isn't a simple fall in love and get married with a happily ever after ending. This is a story of two people with different backgrounds and different lives. They each have things in their past that have made them the people they are when they meet. When they come together they recognize the attraction and the hole the other fills. But, with the competing careers of an ER doctor and a contemporary romance author - not to mention parents who are less than supportive of not only their careers but their partners - their relationship is not without it's challenges. Fortunately, Walt &  Dakota are both determined, strong-willed individuals who don't give up easily. They also aren't too proud to recognize or admit when they've made a mistake. 

"Not Quite Forever" is wonderful romantic adventure that takes some unexpected twists and turns along the way to happily ever after. Reality is seldom a picture perfect relationship. Bybee manages to tell a realistic, and at times frustrating, love story without losing the essence of a light-hearted romance. I'm definitely a fan of Dr. Baby Daddy & Baby Mama!

FYI~ not a "clean" read. Some mature language and pre-marital intimate scenes.
Honest disclosure~ I received a copy from the author to review.
