Not Quite Enough, is the third book in Catherine Bybee's Not Quite series. So far, this installment is definitely my favorite. This contemporary romance is about Monica and Trent. When an earthquake followed by a tsunami hit the coast of Jamaica, Monica Mann is one of the first trauma nurses to finally make good on her training with Borderless Nurses. She uses this trip to get away from jerk of a boss and recent break up. Trent Fairchild retreated to Jamaica after the sudden death of his parents. He continues to struggle over the guilt he carries. While living in Jamaica he manages a small tourist transportation fleet of helicopters and spends most his time flying! They meet during difficult circumstances, something most people won't even imagine finding themselves in. There's an instant spark between them. Monica feels she isn't one for long term relationships, in fact she tends to end them before it becomes to serious. Sex is fine, love isn't for her. Trent has major trust issues because of things that happened in the past. Then one day they finally give in to the constant attraction to each other when suddenly they find themselves in a life in death situation. I really enjoyed this book, with its action adventure, great humanitarian effort, survival and to top it off a hot steamy and dramatic romance.......can't ask for much more!! Not Quite Enough is a good, captivating and engaging book.

A nurse heads to tsunami damaged Jamaica to care for injured islanders. Those who know her call her the 'ice queen.' She meets and hooks up with a helicopter pilot who lives on the island and whom she believes is only a pilot when he is actually a co-owner of a large corporate airplane charter business. (The disaster environment is interesting, but I don't know if it's accurate.) The couple gets trapped as the result of a large aftershock, which is when the real drama starts.
The author has consistent grammatical errors and her premise is sometimes awkward. For example, the protagonist is supposed to be the 'ice queen,' but she doesn't include any cold behavior - unless her ability to focus during stressful times is 'cold,' or her immature relationships are 'cold.' The type of person she is supposed to be doesn't fit the actual character, who is friendly, competent, and confident; and a young woman who is happy playing the field. We know even less about her male love interest. In fact, the author doesn't fully develop any of the characters. The plot is average and predictable.
Even so, the performer does a very good job, which actually improved my listening experience. Somehow, this circumstance leaves me in a better mood than a reader who ruins an intriguing and brilliantly written story... go figure.
Overall, go ahead and get this if you have credits lying about and have no audio books you are dying to hear.
