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…


Bybee’s books always get me in a feel good mood.  Not Quite Dating is no exception.


Jessie is jaded.  She’s thinks the only relationship she should have is a man with money.  She thinks that would cure all her woes, but money doesn’t make everything better.  Sometimes you just need love and someone you can connect with.


I love Jack.  He’s sweet, and nothing like you’d expect a billionaire playboy to be.  He’s done with fake women who only want his money, and decides he’s going to pursue Jessie acting like he doesn’t have any money.


The connection between these two is undeniable.  The chemistry is there, and Jessie just needs to get over her hang up over money.  It doesn’t provide all the happiness one would think.  I loved seeing the way Jack interacts with Jessie’s son.  He’s sweet and doesn’t make him feel like he’s a little boy.


Not Quite Dating is a sweet book that will fly by.  I’m excited to see what happens to the rest of the characters in this series.
