New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee delivers the fifth heartwarming, flirty novel in the wildly popular Not Quite series.
Mary Kildare knows how to read people. It’s both why she makes a great therapist and why she refuses to trust the average bachelor. Staying fiercely independent has been her primary relationship strategy—until wealthy playboy pilot (and commitmentphobe) Glen Fairchild reappears in her life. After a yearlong teasing tug-of-war, Mary and Glen test the waters of attraction, only to find that their physical chemistry runs deeper than flirtation.
At first, a bicoastal romance suits them both—especially since Glen can swoop in and whisk Mary away on one of his company’s planes. But no matter how close they get, they’re still three thousand miles apart. And when Mary’s life is threatened, Glen realizes the one luxury he doesn’t have is time. Can he close the distance between them before it’s too late?
I absolutely loved this book. It’s fun and emotional, and has a lot of pretty amazing dates.
I loved Mary in Dakota’s book. She’s the cynical best friend that doesn’t think she’s capable of love or being a lovey dovey type of person. But there’s one person that makes her heart skitter every time he is near.
We didn’t see much of Glen in any of the other books, but we caught glimpses of him. I’m happy we got to see him with all his charmingness. I know that’s not a word, but it is now. He’s a huge flirt, and knows how to get his way when it comes to Mary.
After reading Not Quite Perfect, I’ve decided I need a personal plane. I mean how fantastic is it to just hop on a flight and go wherever your heart desires. It’s definitely a pretty epic way of impressing your significant other. 😉
There are a few scary moments where I was biting my lip wondering what was going to happen. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to see the results of certain events.
I love the chemistry between Glen and Mary, especially since Mary refuses she can be caught by a player. We see softer sides to both of these characters, and some moments are swoon-worthy.
Now my burning question is… will the last Fairchild brother get his own story????
