Book Review | Not Quite Perfect

This review is going to be a little different from my usual reviews, just to mix it up a little. A bit shorter and more succinct, a really quick review, if you will.



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?

Through mutual friends, Mary and Glen have been meeting on and off for a while. Whilst there is an attraction, Mary isn’t into the playboy type, and they live on opposite ends of the country. However they decide to give it a shot and since Glen is a pilot the distance becomes less of an issue, until Mary is in danger.


What I liked:

This is the 5th book in the series and it doesn’t disappoint, you get caught up on the previous characters that you enjoyed, whilst getting to see the new romance.

It’s an easy read, that keeps you hooked. There is enough of a mix between the romance and the danger to keep you intrigued.

I wasn’t sure about Mary from the previous book Not Quite Forever, her character seemed too quiet and analytical, so it was nice to see a different side to her and by the end I was really rooting for her and Glen.


What I didn’t like:

I think that this might be the last in the series (I’m hoping it’s not though!!)


Interesting snippet:

Glen was turning into the real deal, and Mary wasn’t sure if she should just abandon herself to the feeling of belonging to someone, even as a girlfriend, or keep the walls she’d constructed years ago up to save her the heartache if it didn’t work out. Her two minds were fighting on which path to take, and her heart stood in the middle of the tug of war.
