Teaser from 48% of Not Quite Perfect
She could almost see the inside of her dorm when she repeated the series of terrible events. “Mr College was leaving my dorm and Modern Lt was surprising me with Starbucks.”
“Oh that’s bad.”
“It was awful. In the end I didn’t end up with either guy and didn’t date for close to a year.” She shivered. “ugh!”
“I take it Modern Lit thought you were an item.”
“And Mr College was…you were too much trouble for his time.”
“That about nails it.”
“So how is it you still like surprises after that?”
Good question. “I drank the Starbucks. It wasn’t the coffee’s fault I got caught in the walk of shame.”
Not Quite Perfect by Catherine Bybee
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?
