(Not Quite #5)
September 20, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Contains: sex, some language
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?
I truly liked Mary and Glen together. I'm not always a fan of "player" types, but Glen pleasantly surprised me. He was still super charismatic, but he treated Mary with complete respect, and I loved that. Mary was intelligent and independent, but she still gave Glen a chance. I loved watching her open up, take a risk with him, and blossom under love. They were a wonderful couple, and I enjoyed the pacing of their relationship and the sweetness of their romance.
Along with the romance, there is an underlying current of mystery and suspense as Mary found herself in danger and under threat. Now, to be honest, it didn't take much for me to solve. But despite that, what I really enjoyed was how Mary and Glen's reactions to the danger actually brought them closer together.
There is also a super sweet character in the story that I loved: Mary Francis. She complimented the story in such a great way and I'm so glad Bybee included her. Add in a beautiful, tender ending, and I truly enjoyed this little escape.
