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 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?

My Thoughts:
First things first, if you haven't read the previous books don't worry. Yes, the book is part of a series, but it can be read as a standalone. Yes, there are characters from previous books, but the story focuses on Glen and Mary. Anyway, they have known each other for about a year, but never acted on the attraction. Glen is pretty easy to read on why they haven't gotten together, he's a player. However, everyone hints around he hasn't found the right girl. Mary, I'm not sure why, but I don't think she wants to be a notch on Glen's bedpost.

Anyway, they finally take a chance. The relationship is pretty smooth throughout the book. So, it made me wonder if there was going to be any real hiccups. I guess being 3000 miles away could cause trouble, but he's a pilot. Fortunately things do pick about half way through the story. I kind of figured out what the issue before it happen.

All right, Not Quite Perfect definitely fits the title. However, not the way you think. At first I was having a little trouble with the title, but towards the end I was like I see now. Glen was a great guy. I mean he tried to be there for Mary even though he was so far away. However, he also had a challenge of overcoming Mary's independent streak. By the way, that streak kind of drove me nuts. Yet, it's understandable to see why Mary has that independent streak, but it does pose a challenge in the story. Overall, not a bad read. So, if this sounds like something you would like you give Not Quite Perfect a try.
