Book Review – Not Quite Enough by Catherine Bybee - 5 Stars!

Catherine Bybee is probably better known for her amazing Weekday Bride series; however her Not Quite series is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  Each of the books in this series could easily be standalone books; however I had grown to like Monica so much in the previous two books in the series I was eagerly awaiting her book to be released.  I was not at all disappointed.  Not Quite Enough was an emotional book that I truly could not put down.  The book had plenty of romance in it, but it also had action and suspense that I was not expecting, but was very well done.  Not only was I able to connect emotionally with Monica the heroine, but with the hero Trent as well.  Rarely am I able to connect as much to what a hero is feeling and understand their motivations as I did in this story.

The description of Jamaica as both a paradise vacation destination, a place full of poverty stricken natives, as well as post disaster conditions, was very well done.  The subplot story about the ER and the relationships and politics that go into working there was also very compelling and Bybee did a great job of giving enough background to give a reader who has no background in nursing an understanding of the situation, without bogging down the book with too many details. 


Bybee really excels at character development, and even with the minor characters that made an appearance in this book, I hope to read many more in the series to see what happens to the other staff in the ER as well as Trent's brothers.

Not Quite Enough is a true 5 star book and I recommend it even to people who do not usually read romance.

OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!

MATURITY RATING - 18 + VERY a little steamy
