Not Quite Perfect
Author: Catherine Bybee
Release Date: September 20,2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Montlake Romance


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?

Catherine Bybee Guest Post

With nearly two years between books, it’s not surprising how anxious my readers are to hear how Mary and Glen manage their happily ever after. In my newest release, Not Quite Perfect, Glen Fairchild, CFO of Fairchild Charters, a private jet company owned and operated by him and his brothers, has the world at his fingertips…literally. Most playboys have a limited playing field, not Glen. With a pilot license and multiple airplanes at his disposal, he has worked the title of player happily for years. Then he met Mary.

Glen Fairchild is the last person Mary wants to fall for in her life. Commitment phobic, player, most certainly a womanizer, the man puts the M in macho, the M in moxie, the hummm in Mary’s chest. She might have been tempted right after she met the man, but since he never followed up on his grins and his sexy innuendo, she figured he’d lost interest. She was wrong! So how does this couple make a long distance relationship work?

Unlimited calling and texting plan (Don’t forget those international rates).

Frequent flyer miles.

Win the lottery or have the money to jump on a plane at will.

Own your own jet, or date someone who does.

Wear a watch with two times set, yours and theirs.

Keep communication open at all times.

Download Snapchat on your phone…for those moments when you just need to share.

Work hard during the week, and give yourself complete weekends off.

Keep it honest and open, if you’re starting to think the guy/girl next door is a better deal, talk about it.

Don’t be afraid to call, just to say goodnight

Facetime or video chat, even if you didn’t do your makeup or shave.

Most of all, know when it’s time to close the gap on your relationship and move on with your Happily Ever After.


Now let's see Mary and Glen deal with setting up a date over the phone with an excerpt from Not Quite Perfect.

“Good.” Dakota sipped her coffee. “So when will you see him again?”

“I don’t know; we didn’t talk about it.”

“It’s not like he can meet you for lunch.”

“He would be a complete distraction if he lived here.”

“Distractions are good.”

They turned the conversation over to Dakota and Leo, and by the time they were finishing their coffee Mary’s phone was ringing.

The girlie squeal thing would end eventually . . . but she enjoyed it now. “Hi, Glen.”

“You sound wide awake.”

And he sounded delicious. “That’s because Dakota hobbled over here at the crack of dawn.”

Dakota swished at her with both her hands.

“Good thing I didn’t stay over then.”

“Oh, she texted first to make sure I was alone.”

Glen’s laughter filled the line. “Glad you ladies have a protocol.”

“Like a tie on the door at the dorms. Are you on the way to the airport?”

“Nope, already in the air.”

“Makes me wonder how many hours a year you’re up there.”

“Probably about as many as you’re in your car. Hold on.” She heard him talking to the copilot.

“What’s he saying?” Dakota whispered.

“What are we? In high school?” Mary giggled.

Dakota nodded with enthusiasm.

“You there?” Glen asked.

“Aren’t there laws about talking on cell phones while flying?”

“No. We don’t get pulled over for speeding either.”

“Keeps your insurance rates down then.”

Glen was laughing again. “So, next weekend?”

“This weekend isn’t even over yet.”

“Let me rephrase. Next Saturday . . .”

“That would be the day after Friday,” she teased.

Dakota slapped the edge of the table and held in a laugh.

“You like pulling my chain, woman.”

“I haven’t pulled your chain yet.” The words fell out of her mouth so fast she couldn’t close it quick enough.

Dakota roared with laughter and Glen’s silence on the line made her cringe.

“Who are you and what did you do with that innocent woman I took to dinner last night?” he asked.

“I told you my mouth got me in trouble.”

“I’ll remember that. We’ll circle back to that chain a little later. Saturday at eleven in the morning.”

She waited for more.


“Are you asking?”

“Hell no. Why ruin what’s working?”


“What should I wear?”

“Casual. We’ll be outside and it will be in the eighties. And bring a swimsuit . . . just in case.”

“A swimsuit?”

Dakota’s eyes lit up.

“Unless you like jumping in the water fully clothed.”

“Not particularly.”

“Glad we have that settled then. I’ll text you later about that chain pulling.”

“Good-bye, Glen.”

He disconnected the call and Dakota and Mary squealed.
