Rating : 4 out of 5 Stars
Not Quite Perfect is a great addition to Catherine Bybee’s Not Quite series. I love when authors revisit characters from previous books! Mary Kildare and Glen Fairchild met through mutual friends. There was chemistry between them but they never acted on it. Mary was convinced that Glen was not interested enough to initiate a date.
One year later, they meet again, and this time Glen asks her out. Mary doesn’t normally fall for a player, but she accepts a date with him. Mary is a therapist, and is obsessive about analyzing every person who crosses her path. So obviously, Glen is the subject of a detailed personality analysis! Mary and Glen have very different background. Mary is an orphan and has had to fend for herself. Glen is wealthy, privileged and has a close-knit family. They are opposite and their banter was laugh-out-loud funny!
Glen enjoys living and dating him could help Mary grasp life more than she is allowing herself. He is generous and caring. Mary refuses to depend on him, though, she is very guarded and convinced that what they have is only temporary. But life with Glen is an irresistible adventure, and he is always there for her, especially when she is threatened by a stranger. Glen is surprised and challenged by Mary’s honesty. Their love affair seems to become pretty close to the real deal.
This sexy, funny and twisty story will hook you fast and keep you flipping the pages until the very end. I definitely recommend it!
