Not Quite Dating ~ Catherine ByBee

Not Quite Dating
By Catherine Bybee
Not Quite Series Book One

Publisher Montlake
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description:

Waitress and single mom Jessica “Jessie” Mann is practical to a fault. Even if she had time to date, which she doesn’t, she’d be determined to provide her son with a more secure upbringing than the one she had—and that would mean a husband with big bucks. When Jack Morrison—a sexy-as-sin, seemingly broke customer with a cowboy hat and a seductive grin—tries to flirt with her, she shoots him down. She doubts a carefree dreamer like Jack can provide the financial stability she needs. Yet with Christmas just weeks away, and Jessie not wanting to spend it alone, the charming Texan is proving hard to resist.

As the heir to the Morrison luxury hotel empire, Jack is used to being fawned over. But Jack needs someone who will fall in love with him—not his wealth. He’s set his sights on Jessie, though her hardened heart just might get in the way…To be sure, he conceals his true identity and offers to help Jessie find the rich husband she seeks. But Jack’s daring charade may rob him of the holiday wish he wants most of all…

My Take: I loved this book. I wasn't sure that I was going to get into a book that had no supernatural players but this one was great. Maybe because even though none of the characters are supernatural, Jack is still a real fantasy! Rich and still down to earth Jack is out to find a woman who will really love him. 
He falls hard for a Denny's waitress and spends the rest of the book trying to win her over. This is one of those feel good kinds of novels. The characters are lovable, honest and hard workers. There are no bad guys, just life and its hard knocks.

A total win I will be looking out for the next one!
