I am thrilled to be a part of Catherine's blog tour yet again. I absolutely love her books and can't wait to get my greedy little paws on them! Today we are here to talk about Not Quite Forever, book 4 in the Not Quite series. Let's just jump right into it, shall we?
Catherine is one of those writers on par with Nora. Yes, I am on first name basis with them both (in my head ... I'd be a stuttering mess should I ever meet either in person!). She is the type of writer who's book you want to snuggle up in front of the fire with a blanket and your puppy (because my puppy loves to snuggle!) and read all night long. She manages to give us that happily ever after that we all dream about, yet throws enough twists and turns into it to make us really appreciate it when we get there! Not Quite Forever is another one of those books. I hold a special place in my heart (and library) for any book in the Not Quite series as this is the first series I ever read of Catherine's and it got me hooked. I've read every single book she's published since and most of them before they were published! lol!
In NQF, we finally get Dr Walt's story! I've been waiting and wondering if we would read more about the good doctor since we first met him. Walt and Dakota (famous super-successful romance author) meet at a hotel hosting both a romance conference and a medical convention when there is a mix-up and both are booked to give speeches in the same room. The sparks, they are a flyin' and for a romance writer who only writes other people's happily ever after it looks like she might finally get hers. Naturally, Walt gets spooked (because when you have too much of a good thing, of course something is going to go wrong. Ugh, MEN!) and bails. When he finally realizes that he messed up what should have been his very own happily ever after, he will be forced to track Dakota down and work his tail off winning her back and proving that he is in it for the long haul this time! Meddling unsupportive mothers notwithstanding, our couple will eventually get their perfect ending! It's the road that gets us there that makes the story and Catherine is well versed in making sure it's a good one!
Realistic and loveable characters will make you fall for this installment in the series! I highly recommend the entire series but book reads fine as a standalone. Now I will sit and wait .. and stalk Catherine until she gets me either the next Weekday Bride book or the next Not Quite book ... I'm happy with either, I'm easy like that! Until then, I'm going to focus on making friends with the Morrisons & Fairchilds - free swanky hotel rooms and private flights when I need?? Yes,please !

The touching and heartwarming fourth novel in the wildly popular Not Quite series from New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee.

But to her surprise, she finds a real-life hero when she meets a handsome emergency room doctor. The outspoken author feels an instant and intense attraction to Dr. Walt Eddy, and the feeling is mutual. When the globetrotting doctor pulls a disappearing act on Dakota, she's prepared to write him off ... until fate brings a blindsiding twist to her story.
Still scarred from a past tragedy, Walt may have disappeared on Dakota, but now he's determined to win her back. For the first time in years, he knows he's ready for a new chance at love. Yet between Dakota's doubts and two sets of meddling parents, can the once-blissful couple finally create the bright, loving future they desperately want?
