Such a sweet and touching story!
The book is not extreme heavy on romance/sex, more on the family values and love.
Amazing heroine. She raised the son of her deceased friend and loved the boy as her own. I respected and adored her for her kindness, strength and humanity. I cried when I read flashbacks about h’s friend/boy’s mother – heartbreaking, but at the same time beautiful.
I liked Owen/h’s adopted son, but he did some silly things at the end; ok, he was only 15, so let it g ...more
“I’m just a guy, falling for a girl.”
“Jason.” How could he say that?
“And you’re just a girl, falling for a guy.”
“You make it sound so easy.”
“It doesn’t have to be complicated.” But it was, and they both knew it.
Recently relocated California girl Rachel Price knew she’d have to deal with New York’s City’s winter weather eventually, she was just hoping that day was waaaaay off in the future. When a snow storm surprises Rachel at work, she eschews all rational advice and de ...more

Life happens and when we are challenged to step up, hopefully we do what our hearts tell us to do. In Not Quite Crazy by Catherine Bybee, Rachel Price does exactly that. When her best friend had her son, she was there. When the father never stepped up or any other of his relatives show any interest, she was there.
Rachel was also there when her friend was stricken with cancer, held her and son's hands for support and then buried her. Rachel is all ...more
I really shouldn't be surprised. I have loved everything I have read by Catherine Bybee and I don't know why I haven't binge read all of her books. Trust me, that is going to be something ...more
This is a profoundly harmful story. Rachel best friend recently died of cancer, and asks Rachel to take custody of her 15 year old son, Owen. To be closer to Owen's paternal grandparents, they move to CT. Rachel is a white woman, Owen is black, and the entire book focuses on the fight to keep Owen's paternal grandparents from taking custody of him.
This is steeped in deeply harmful racist tropes of every kin ...more

I loved both Rachel and Jason and Owen was a great surprise. I really didn't like the whole custody battle part of the story. I am very happy Jason got his HEA. I have enjoyed this series. Sorry to see it end. Happy reading! ...more
This is a story about two nice people who fall in love, have vanilla sex, and encounter some plot problems that pull them closer together. There is no soul here. It is fluff. There are no character arcs. The villains are straw men. It is politically correct with zero depth in a way that I actually ...more
"Not quite crazy."
He Kissed the back of her hand. "Maybe a little crazy."
• Rachel had recently relocated from the west coast to the east coast. She was working hard to adjust to her new home, new job, and suddenly be the mom of a teenaged boy. Romance was the last thing on her mind.
• Jason was the oldest of the Fairchild clan, and due to his position in the family, ...more

It was a light and beautiful love story that takes a sneaky approach to love and hands it to you gently and with care. This story blossoms and bloomed and I really felt like a was a spectator to the characters lives. And I really loved that. Feeling like they are REAL people.
No arrogant asshole hero here. All gentleman with no OW BS! His honesty and devotion was beautiful. Jason won my heart when he befriended the heroine's stepson without hesita ...more
I enjoyed this standalone book and recommend it to all who enjoy a good thumbing of the nose to antagonists and HEAs. ...more

Can I just say that I wanted to be a Fairchild to have private ✈ on my beck and call...
So many places to see..
The eldest serious workaholic child is always my favorite and I always enjoy seeing their fun side with less responsibility. Jason and Rachel are perfect
I liked how Rachel insisted on not dating Jason when she found out he was her boss and he refused to listen. And I liked Owen, Rachel’s deceased best friend’s son that Rachel promised to take care of. He’s 15 and a hell of a nice k ...more
I’m looking at this story and author in a different light now after the Twitter thread by @jenreadsromance about problematic material within and issues surrounding its RITA nomination. I appreciate her work educating me on recognizing racism in the books I read.
For my review, I will not restate the plot since you can read the description on the jacket, nor will I post any spoilers.
I have read several books by Catherine Bybee, but I have to say this has been my favorite thus far. The H and h are strong characters and their story is wellwritten. There are hints that there are books preceding this one which pertain to other characters in this one. This is a stand-alone book and does not requi ...more
There's a sanity to the madness that is Catherine Bybee. At the heart of it all is the characters she creates. They dare us to be human. Encourage us to be empathetic and shine a light on what life has to offer whether ideal or heartbreaking. As an author she pulls back the curtain and guides readers with a profound sense of wisdom and wit. Not Quite Crazy is a nod to one life lesson we all take for granted. To get the most out of life, it has ...more
