The entire baby on a doorstep thing has been done...a lot! TV, movies, books-it's a staple, and one that author, Catherine Bybee puts to good use in her second book in the "Not Quite" series-Not Quite Mine. (the first was Not Quite Dating-another fun book!)

Beautiful, rich Katelyn Morrison has a lot going for her-she's beautiful, she's rich, she loyal, and she has love to spare, so when a tiny baby shows up on her doorstep, you know this story is going to be full of lies, deceptions and secrets.

Bybee adds another layer to the story, that I won't give away, but I enjoyed it very much.

Ok, onto our male lead-Dean Prescott. Big, Strapping, rich and yummy (as he is called by a secondary character) is in love with Katie, and has been for years.

Katie, naturally, is hesitant to share her secret with Dean. She fell in love with the tiny baby in mere seconds, as mothers often do, and is moving the earth to find out where baby Savannah came from, who her mother is and will she be able to legally keep her.

Bybee glosses over a lot of the legalities and focuses on Katie's growing love for the little girl left to her, and then her relationship with Dean. And that's ok, this is a romance! If too much detail and attention had been given over to the legal aspects of abandonment this would have easily switched from a romance novel to a drama, so in this case it works.

Lots of focus here on what makes a family, are we destined to repeat our parents mistakes, and learning to love again.

The cliche's are there, but I didn't care...I just had fun rooting for Katie, Dean and Savannah.

Great, light read for Spring.

Author Catherine Bybee continues her delightfully written "Not Quite" series with Book Two, "Not Quite Mine". Continuing with characters from Book One, "Not Quite Dating", the story begins with the wedding of Jack and Jessie, the leads from the first book. At the wedding, Jack's sister, Katelyn, is once again faced with her true love, Dean, her brother's best friend and best man at the wedding. Friends since childhood, and later young lovers, Katie and Dean had kept their romance quiet. When Katie became pregnant, and then miscarried, they had gone their separate ways with no one the wiser. Each moved on to other involvements, but those relationships were not meant to last. Seeing each other again is a powerful emotional jolt, and old feelings are simmering just below the surface. Katie has long been publicly perceived as rich and flighty, but Dean knows the real Katie. When Jack asks Dean to keep an eye on Katie because she seems troubled, Dean jumps at the chance to be near her. Coming home the night of the wedding, Katie is suprised with a baby girl left at her apartment door. A letter explains that the real mother knows the truth of Katie's lost child and that she wants Katie to raise the baby girl, Savannah, as her own. Katie is both stunned and thrilled at the chance to be a mother. Early the next morning, Dean pays her a visit and discovers the child, whom Katie says she is keeping for a friend. Dean doesn't believe her story, and he is determined to get the truth. However, the real truth will be a bigger revelation than anyone expects, and all of their lives will be affected. Will Katie and Dean let go of past hurts and build a new life together? Will having the chance to be a mother help Katie reconnect with the mother who left her behind? If you love wonderfully written contemporary romance, then you will greatly enjoy the "Not Quite" series from author Catherine Bybee. Recommended.

I felt like I was reading about high school girls keeping secrets for silly reasons and then having all kinds of drama and stress because someone might discover the secret.

Katie was "secretly" dating Dean, became pregnant, had a miscarriage, and learned she would not be able to carry a pregnancy in the future. She "assumes" that Dean will want his own biological children, so she breaks up with him and does not tell him why - another "secret."

Later, a mother abandons her baby girl, giving the baby to Katie with a legal document. Katie does not know who the mother is (a secret). Katie wants to keep the baby, but insists on keeping this secret from her brother and her dad. Her reason is "If Jack finds out about the baby, my dad will get involved. My dad thinks I'm irresponsible. I don't want to confirm that to him. I don't want to disappoint him." Well, she's being responsible. That didn't make sense. She also fears her father would do stupid things and get the press involved. That didn't fit.

Katie wants to keep the baby "secret" from Dean for a couple reasons. 1. Dean might think Katie is bad by keeping the baby away from the birth mother. 2. If Dean were in her life, and the mother showed up to take the baby away, Dean might abandon Katie. Uhhhh.... what?

There are more secrets. I just did not enjoy them. Secrets can make a good story, but I want them reasonable, rational, believable.

On the positive side: The subject matter might appeal to some - an abandoned baby given to an infertile woman who loves the baby and is a wonderful mother. And there's a happy romantic ending.
