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 think this book is a victim of just not quite measuring up to the author's previous work. Ms. Bybee is an author I typically enjoy, but Not Quite Perfect fell a little flat for me.
The story and relationship between Mary and Glen had potential to be interesting. They were a bi-coastal couple with a slightly contentious history. Add in the intrigue element and there should be all the elements for a great story.
I had trouble connecting with Mary, she seemed very stiff and while that is part of her personality, I struggled to get past it. Glen also didn't seem to have the character development I typically expect from Ms. Bybee's work.
Overall, this is an okay book. If you are a fan of the Not Quite series, you will probably enjoy it.
