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?

What a delightful read this was. Not Quite Perfect was absolutely a perfect story for me. From the funny interesting characters to the suspenseful underlying plot Author Catherine Bybee gave me everything that I was looking for in a great book. I always get a tad nervous when I pick up a book from a new Author but in this case I can honestly say that I have no regrets at all what so ever grabbing this one.
Mary was a strong independent woman (my favorite kind of heroine). She was fantastic! She was witty, sassy and a quick thinker and with Glen she definitely needed to be all of those things. Glen was sarcastic, cocky and ended up being a very caring gentlemen. These two fit together so well but it took them some time to realize it. Their rocky road to a relationship was both entertaining and heartwarming to follow.
This story is full of little things to keep you interested without going overboard. I thoroughly enjoyed it and read it in one sitting because I didn’t want to put it down. If you are looking for a book that will leave you feeling giddy, happy and a little lovey dovey, this is the book for you!
