Catherine Bybee is one of the most beautiful and entertaining writers I’ve had the pleasure of reading and re-visiting several times. Her new series “The Most Likely To” series stars three childhood friends and their lives, as life takes them on different paths, and yet they all come to a crossroads where they converge and support each other through the touch times. Sometimes, friends are all the family we need, as Bybee says.


The pioneer of her new series, “Doing It Over” brings Melanie Bartlett back home to River Bend, along with her seven year daughter to do just that – do her life over leaving a bad and obsessive relationship behind. Coming home to her childhood friends Jo and Zoe is a safe haven as she regroups and tries to build a new life. Meeting the resident building contractor Wyatt Gibson is an added motivation and support of her new beginnings.

Catherine Bybee has an amazing talent of interlacing romance, suspense and danger that the narration flows as smooth as silk. Melanie and Wyatt have been caricatured to perfection – independent, stubborn, courageous and protective. Hope as the adorable, mature and spunky seven year old reminded me of my younger daughter! Miss. Gina as the kickass owner of Miss. Gina’s Bed-And-Breakfast is a reading riot and will be a standing fixture in this series for sure.

Another charming and captivating read from the effervescent Catherine Bybee!!!

Received an ARC from Montlake Romance via NetGalley for an honest review.


Catherine Bybee’s Weekday Brides Series is one of the most beautiful and entertaining series I’ve read and have re-visited several times. I will miss these alpha males with their imperfections and attitude and their equally sassy and independent women.


The grand finale of the series, “Treasured By Thursday” gives Gabriella Masini, a fitting fairy tale. For all the pain and betrayal that she had endured, the nightmares and scars that plague her in the present, she is one amazing woman who deserves the man of her dreams to cherish her, adore her and love her. And Hunter Blackwell fits that role like a glove.

Touted as one of the most eligible bachelors of times, self-made and a billionaire to the boot, Hunter Blackwell is on the lookout for a temporary wife to get away from the limelight. But when Alliance refuses to take him as a client, a man with the word ‘no’ not in his dictionary, manages to blackmail Gabriella into marriage.

Catherine’s trademark style of witty writing and emotional play of scenes is as always awesome and enthralling. I believe she’s spent an extra caring minutes creating Gabriella and Hunter. Gabriella has blossomed into a savvy and strong woman, overcoming a past that haunts her sometimes, yet it has helped in shaping her independence and individuality. Hunter is the ultimate businessman, ruthless but a heart of gold and when he cares for someone, he gives himself completely.

I loved, loved and loved both these amazing characters. Bringing together the complete entourage of her series was just pure orgasmic! And no words can do justice to this series. It has to be read to enjoy Catherine’s amazing characters and enjoy the screenplay of her various love stories.

Meg Rosenthal: Matchmaker by day, realist by night, Meg is not about to get swept away by a charming, darkly handsome businessman in a designer suit. She’s come to a beautiful secluded resort to evaluate the private island’s potential for her agency, not to ogle its owner. But there’s something about the magnetic man that’s hard to resist, even for a woman who refuses to fall in love.

Valentino Masini: A successful and drop-dead sexy businessman, Valentino is used to having the finer things in life. Yet he’s never wanted someone the way he wants Meg, who’s stirring up a hurricane of trouble in his heart. But just as he decides to convince her to stay, someone else decides it might be time to get Meg off the island…permanently.         

And A Delicious Excerpt To Tantalize: 

Val brushed the side of her face with the back of his hand, moved closer.

Meg stopped playing, felt her pulse jump.

“Where’s Michael?” Val whispered.

“Michael?” The name didn’t register.

Val lifted his left eyebrow. “The man you’re here with.”

Right. “He’s a …” Damn, he smelled edible.

Val’s palm captured her neck and guided her to her feet. “He’s just a friend, isn’t he, Margaret?” 

The way Val’s lips moved drew her closer. The need to taste them, feel them on hers was impossible to walk away from. “If I told you we were more than friends…”

Val’s eyes traveled from her lips to her eyes. “Then I’d have to let you go.” He loosened his fingers on her neck, but instead of moving away, Meg leaned in.

“Sounds like you might regret that decision.” She laid a hand on his firm chest. The man wasn’t soft under his stuffy suits.

“I don’t pursue another man’s woman.”

He wasn’t moving away.

“Good to hear, Masini.” She lifted her lips close to his, felt his breath mix with hers. “I don’t belong to anyone.”

Val hesitated for a nanosecond, and then took her lips. His closed-mouth kiss started off soft, like a hesitant man worried about rushing. Yet when Val wrapped his free hand around her waist, and his body fit against hers, Meg opened for him, encouraged him to taste.

When he did she lost it. He tasted of bourbon and sex. God help her, she wanted to crawl into his kiss and explore it for hours. The man kissed like he was on a mission. And maybe he was. Who knew if Val Masini made it a weekly occurrence to kiss a new woman? Somehow, she didn’t think so. He was too reserved most of the time.

Not now … not with his tongue exploring her and his strong hands pressing the small of her back closer. Every hard ridge of the man met with every soft curve of hers.

The kiss went on until she found her chest tightening with a familiar warning. Sexual excitement had to be paced or she might find herself in a full-blow asthma attack. A frustrating fact of her life in the last few years. One that kept her single most of the time, her encounters lukewarm at best.

Val was threatening the air in her lungs with just a kiss.

A heated knock her on her ass kiss, but a kiss nonetheless.

She eased away and Val chased her lips.

She tried to slow her breathing, couldn’t catch a deep breath. “Wait,” she managed, pulling away.

“Too much, cara?”

You have no idea.

It’s always a pleasure to read Catherine Bybee….always! She takes us into a world of sweet romance, loss and forever, with a healthy dose of reality….just the kind of stuff we readers need for a rainy day. “Not Quite Forever” (Book 4 – Quite Series) takes us along the journey with Dr. Walt Eddy and the famous romance author Dakota Laurens to their Forever Land.


A mix up at a convention brings Walt and Dakota face to face and sparks ignite instantaneously. As different as chalk and cheese, their meeting is sweet as honey and sexy as silk and rich as velvet. Mutual attraction reels the procrastinating doctor and the over organized author into spending time with each other and into each other.

Dakota believes in romance and happily ever-afters, and the globetrotting doctor does a disappearing act haunted by a painful past. Circumstances bring them together after a short hiatus, and Walt confesses to himself his feelings for Dakota. But Dakota is already on the run from Walt to nurse a broken heart. With the support of some amazing friends and family, it’s up to Walt to convince Dakota he’s done running and ready to settle down.

With pages of sassy dialogues and steamy romance, disagreeable parents and nosy friends, holidays and sickness, Walt and Dakota sure tap dance around each other to finally get their forever. I love the way Catherine gives importance to the depth of relationships and the maturity of nurturing them with patience and love. The choreography of Dakota and Walt’s mother’s relationship was a delightful insight to read. Another charming read all the way!
