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 when someone abandons a baby girl 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 when he discovers a baby is living with her. 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.

7 Reasons to read Not Quite Mine

  • We get Katie’s story.  I was super excited about this after meeting her in Not Quite Dating. She has no problem butting into her brother’s business.
  • Second chance romance.  I absolutely love these types of stories.
  • Monica & Katie’s friendship.  They become really close after Jack and Jessie get married.
  • The whole baby showing up on her doorstep thing. I like this trope.  Maybe it’s because of that movie 3 Men and a Baby.
  • The mystery of who the baby actually belongs to. (It’s kind of predictable, but still fun seeing how they figure it out.)
  • Seeing Dean and Katie work together, and Dean’s crew give him crap because he lets Katie do pretty much whatever she wants.
  • Seeing these two find their way back to each other, even when they are scared of what could happen in the future.
