New York Times and Wall Street Journal 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?

Review quote

"This novel flows extremely well and readers will find themselves consuming the witty dialogue and strong imagery in one sitting." -RT Book Reviews

"Mary and Glen are too sweet together. I love the lengths that Glen goes to to get his girl. Of course Mary has to make him work for it. Neither is perfect. But together they are. This was such a sweet love story. Really glad I picked this little gem up." -Books-n-Kisses

"Catherine Bybee brings readers a fun and flirty contemporary romance with a touch of mystery. I enjoy her fast-paced stories with humor, emotion, heat, and heart (her Weekday Brides series is one of my favorites and the first book in her new Most Likely To series has me salivating for more). The twists and turns the characters encounter on their way to a happy ending add an extra dimension to their story and I always enjoy a bit of intrigue in my romance. Another layer Bybee adds to her stories are the secondary relationships which help guide the story and give readers greater insight into the main characters." -The Romance Dish, 4 stars

"I love the way Catherine Bybee gives importance to the depth of relationships and the maturity of nurturing them with patience and love. She created Glen and Mary to perfection with their goodness, kindness and just two beautiful people who deserve to be together. Attention to details, the sequence of narration and the practical plot add more flavor and warmth to this fifth book in the Not Quite Series making it a brilliant read." -Romancing Life

"Glen was touted to be a playboy, but honestly, the Glen we see in this novel is anything but. He's a gentleman and sweeps Mary off her feet in a way that was as sexy as it was sweet. I loved how he surrendered to his feelings, and I adored how he teased Mary. He was just such a wonderful guy, and again, I could see how he might've been a playboy in the past, but his focus on Mary was just right. He gave her enough space to be herself, but pushed her when he knew it would be better for her. He makes for a great book boyfriend." -The Jeep Diva

"Not Quite Perfect was a great read, the characters fully formed, the pacing spot on. That it kept my interest throughout says it all. I would definitely recommend and look forward to Ms. Bybee's next book." -Smitten by Books (4 stars)

"Don't let the title fool you. Not Quite Perfect was actually the perfect story to sweep you away and take you on a pleasant adventure. So sit back, relax, maybe pour a glass of wine, and let Catherine Bybee entertain you with Glen and Mary's playful East Coast-West Coast romance. You won't regret it for a moment." -Harlequin Junkie (4.5 stars)

"Sexy, sassy, and surprisingly suspenseful!" -What's Better Than Books
