Not Quite Crazy – Review

by Catherine Bybee


From New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes the sixth novel in the warm and witty Not Quite series.

No one drives in New York City. Everyone knows that, including California transplant Rachel Price. But that doesn’t stop her from driving into the city. From Connecticut. Every single morning. Rain or shine…or snow.

When she runs the charismatic and good-looking Jason Fairchild off the road, their immediate spark is met with bad timing. There is also one tiny little detail: Jason is her boss. And a woman as intelligent and dedicated to her career as Rachel knows not to date her boss.

As CEO of a private jet company, Jason Fairchild is more used to flying than driving. But if he hadn’t chosen to drive home one night, he wouldn’t have met the slowest—and most irresistible—driver in the entire metro area. Jason has never had time for love. Or dating. Or really anything that doesn’t involve work. But when he finds out that Rachel is the newest superstar in his marketing department, he can’t help wondering if fate has other plans…

Catherine Bybee has done it again with this funny, surprising and charming story that is difficult to put it down!

Not Quite Crazy is the sixth and last installment in the Not Quite Series.

The novel follows Rachel Price’s new life in NY.  After her best friend’s death, Rachel becomes the legal guardian of her teenage son, Owen, but she has to fulfill an agreement with Owen’s grandparents.

When she meets Jason for the first time, she does not realize the man is her new and handsome boss. Jason Fairchild, the CEO of the Fairchild Charters that he manages with his brothers, has no time for love. His energies are all focused on his company and his family…until Rachel.

New and strong feelings will overwhelm Rachel’s life and even if she will try to control her attraction to not put her job in jeopardy, chemistry is undeniable from their first meeting…and we’ll enjoy all the twist and turns of this story.

In Not Quite Crazy, Catherine Bybee has created wonderful new characters and delivered a delightful and entertaining storyline about love, friendship, and new chances. As in other Catherine’s book, I really liked her writing style, how she presents the characters and their emotions, and how Rachel and Jason’s relationship develops.

Even if this book is part of a series, it can easily read as a standalone.

Thank you, Catherine, for another romantic and amusing read, and for this special final of the series!

This book deserves five out of five stars.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
