Title: Not Quite Crazy
Author: Catherine Bybee
Release Date: March 6, 2018
Publisher: Montlake Romance
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…
Rachel found the stack of mail on the dining room table. She fingered through a few bills and tossed the junk to the side to add to the recycle bin. The box Owen had spoken of didn’t have a mailing label. In fact, all that was written on the plain brown box was her name, her first name.
She peeled away the tape, not knowing what to expect. Once she folded the lid back, she saw a handwritten envelope on top of a white canvas bag. It took a little effort to lift the noisy bag from the box—the sound of metal hitting metal struck her as odd.
Chains for the tires on her car.
She opened the note and a second paper fell out.
Thank you for braving this stranger in a storm and keeping me from frostbite. Welcome to Connecticut.
Below his name was a phone number
Something inside her stomach flipped, the buzz a teenage girl feels when she notices a popular boy watching her from the other side of the classroom. Or maybe she was reading into it. Maybe this was just a thank-you, a friendly gesture from a grateful, stranded traveler.
Her cheeks warmed.
Assuming he gave her a mobile number, Rachel decided to send a text.
Hello Jason. I received your gift. They were incredibly thoughtful. Thank you.
She read her note over, twice, then pressed “Send.” Off it went, in wherever notes went as they traveled faster than Superman in cyberspace.
The phone in her hand buzzed, reminding her she was holding it.
Is this Rachel?
Do you leave gifts on everyone’s doorstep in town?
Dot. Dot. Dot. It is nearly Christmas.
Was he flirting? It had been some time since she’d sent a text to anyone outside of the friend zone, so she couldn’t tell.
So you double as Connecticut’s Santa Claus?
Shhh. Don’t tell anyone. It’s a secret.
Well, he wasn’t not flirting.
I’ll keep my mouth closed on one condition.
Oh? What’s that?
I want to meet Vixen. She’s always been my favorite.
I thought Vixen was a he.
A boy named Vixen. That’s just cruel. Good point. I’ll see what I can do. The team is on a strict curfew until after the holiday.
Rachel found a rolling eye emoji.
When Rachel’s friend Emily died she left Rachel to raise her son Owen. To make sure the paternal grandparents do not to take her to court for custody of Owen, Rachel and Owen uproot their lives in California and move to New York. That still doesn’t make the grandparents happy and they try to do what they can to have Owen removed from her custody even though Owen wants to stay with Rachel.
During this Rachel meets the owner of the company she works for. Jason seems like an interesting guy – one that doesn’t seem to date a lot. She doesn’t want to date him because he is the boss, but he does everything he can to change her mind.
Not Quite Crazy is the sixth book in the Not Quite series. I must admit – I have not read any of the earlier books in this series. I had heard some good things about this series, so I thought I would give it a try. It is a nice romance if you have a lazy weekend and want something sweet to read.
