The readers can download Not Quite Dating Audiobook for free via Audible Free Trial.


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...



  • I really liked 'Not Quite Dating' by Catherine Bybee. It was a light and enjoyable read, just like her other books. I've read all of her works and have had a great time with each one. The narration was always on point, and that really enhanced my overall experience of the book.
  • I absolutely adored this book! It captured my attention right from the start. The characters were incredibly likable. What really stood out to me was how it gave a fresh and realistic take on a familiar plot. A wealthy man searching for a partner who isn't solely interested in his money meets a single mother who is struggling financially and seeks stability, rather than extravagance. She's not a gold digger and her intentions are genuine. She's already facing hardships and simply wants security. I believe many people can relate to desiring a partner they can love while also avoiding financial instability. Overall, it was a delightful read. I was fortunate to receive an advance copy of this audiobook (ARC) and I'm grateful for the opportunity. Furthermore, I must commend Catherine Bybee, the narrator, who did an outstanding job. Her voice was effortless to listen to, and she brought the characters to life with great portrayal. It was truly an enjoyable experience all around.
  • I absolutely loved this story. It was so enjoyable and the story line, plot, and concept were all fantastic. The main character, Jack, was a wealthy and attractive cowboy with his signature stetson hat. The leading lady, Jessie, was strong and quick-witted, which is always a huge plus for me. Their chemistry was off the charts, and the intimate scenes were exceptionally well-written. There was a generous amount of dialogue throughout the book, which I personally love. The dialogue was well-crafted and easy to follow, making the story flow effortlessly. Regarding the narrator, she did a decent job. I do wish she would practice deepening her voice when voicing male characters, and also work on avoiding making some of the female characters sound overly juvenile. However, she did make efforts and wasn't the worst narrator I've come across.
  • I was a big fan of Catherine Bybee's "Most Likely To" series, so I thought I'd give this one a shot. But I don't think I'll be continuing with the rest of the series, especially if they used the same narrator. The male characters in the audiobook sounded more like females, the sister had a voice straight out of a cartoon, and the Texas accents were really grating. It completely spoiled the story for me.
  • I really enjoyed the concept of a waitress meeting a wealthy man in "Not Quite Dating", which is why I decided to give it a try, especially since it's available on Kindle Unlimited. However, I was disappointed with the plot. While I understood the millionaire's desire to keep his wealth a secret until he knew she loved him for himself, the elaborate lies seemed unnecessary and unrealistic. As for the narrator, they were just okay. Their portrayal of male voices was decent, but not particularly distinct. If it weren't for the hero's accent, it would have been challenging to differentiate him from the other male characters.
  • I'm a fan of Catherine Bybee's writing and I've actually experienced two of her other series through the platform. However, it seems like I'll have to go with reading this one. The narrator's voice in this audiobook just doesn't click with me. Her way of narrating is a bit too dramatic and it distracts me from fully enjoying the story. The accents she uses for the characters, especially the male and country ones, didn't really appeal to me and made the overall flow of the story feel disjointed.
  • It was decent, although not quite up to par with her more recent works. In my opinion, Jack's attempt at a Western accent fell a bit flat and kind of took away from the experience.
