Blog Tour! Not Quite Perfect by Catherine Bybee

With true love, there’s no such thing as a safe distance.

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 commitment-phobe) 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 bi-coastal 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?

This book was not what I thought it was going to be....but in a good way.

It surprised me. More than once. Just when I thought I had it figured out, that I knew what was going to happen, that I knew the pacing and had an idea of how it was going to play out, it switched. The plot changed. The pace changed, and it became something else.

It is not easy for me to detail this without giving it I guess I will have to say that this book just worked for me. I liked Glen and Mary. A lot. I liked them together and I liked who they were on their own, which is refreshing. I loved that there were breadcrumbs to the ending all throughout the story and that Catherine Bybee let you go along with them as their relationship evolved.

I loved that Glen was just there. That he didn't go anywhere. To me, this is how it should be when it is right. Yes, the character breakups, the overreactions, the running when things get tough adds to the drama...but sometimes it is nice to read about someone who decided where he wants to be...and when the stuff happens, he stays.

This was the first of the series that I have read...and I will be going back to read the others (which I actually think I already have on my Kindle). I recommend this book.

Praise for the Not Quite Series

“Bybee’s magnetic fourth Not Quite contemporary proves that romance can happen in the most unlikely places...The love scenes are sizzling and the multidimensional characters make this a page-turner. Readers will look for earlier installments and eagerly anticipate new ones.”

— Publishers Weekly on Not Quite Forever

" Not Quite Dating offers a sweet and satisfying Cinderella fantasy that will keep you smiling long after you've finished reading..."

— USA Today, Happy Ever After

"Bybee's gift for creating unforgettable romances cannot be ignored. [Not Quite Enough] will sweep readers away to a paradise, and they will be intrigued by the thrilling story that accompanies their literary vacation."
