From New York Times, USA Today, and WSJ bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes the third novel in the delicious Not Quite series.
Monica Mann has made it her life’s work to save lives. After an earthquake and tsunami hit the shores of Jamaica, she volunteers her trauma skills with Borderless Nurses. Calculating and methodical, Monica creates order out of whatever chaos she finds.
Until she finds the perpetually barefoot, impossibly masculine Trent Fairchild. No one can pin him down. No, really. He’s a pilot and manages a small fleet of choppers on his adopted island home. Hopelessly drawn to one another, they manage to slip away from the wreckage to get a little closer. And they get a lot closer than expected when aftershocks from the earthquake trap them in their own life-or-death scenario. Paradise has brought them together. Now will it tear them apart?

The plot was well-thought-out and the characters were well-defined and developed. The circumstances the two main characters found themselves in provided a unique and intimate opportunity to 'be there' for each other. Bybee's writing style was flowing and the pace felt right. I read Not Quite Dating, but I think this is better because the storyline was more detailed, complex, interesting and dramatic. Of course there was plenty of romance and a sweet HEA, too.

The novel is set mostly in Jamaica. I didn't really get a feel for the island and its landscape, although I understand that the beaches are lovely. It could really have been set in any earthquake location and I think that the author missed out in introducing us to the people and the island. The American visitors are the main focus of the story with the island inhabitants mainly being portrayed as victims and helpless.
Monica was a delightful character. She appeared in previous books in this series but you don't have to have read them to understand this one - it stands very much on its own. She is independent and strong-willed but in a believable way. She bears up well under the problems she faces and she acts in character all the way through. Trent was a suitable match for her although I did think that he took his survivor guilt a little too far and nearly wrecked his new relationship. Just because one relationship ends badly doesn't mean that they all will and his overreaction was rightly not easily forgiven by Monica. The time they spend alone in the middle of the book is very well done and although I obviously knew that it would all turn out OK in the end there was a fair amount of tension.
This is a light and easy read but the detail that the author has put into the earthquake scenario,the medical world she conjours up and the characterisation of Monica make it an excellent example of the genre. I enjoyed it a lot.
