He’s a game she never intended to play.
And she’s the game changer he never knew he needed.
The Perfect Game tells the story of college juniors, Cassie Andrews & Jack Carter. When Cassie meets rising baseball hopeful Jack, she is determined to steer clear of him and his typical cocky attitude. But Jack has other things on his mind… like getting Cassie to give him the time of day.
They’re both damaged, filled with mistrust and guarded before they find one another (and themselves) in this emotional journey about love and forgiveness. Strap yourselves for a ride that will not only break your heart, but put it back together.
Sometimes life gets ugly before it gets beautiful…
Jack, Jack, Jack. I’m officially in-love with you, completely head-over-heels! The things I wish he could do to me, I can’t even to begin to write on paper!! Is that a little over the top? Did I just cross that line in sharing too much??
I need to focus…
Let’s get down to business. The story moves quick, to the point that Cassie and Jack date and fall in love in a matter of a few chapters. There was some push-and-pull between Cassie and Jack but I wanted it to last longer. At times, the dialogue between the two didn’t seem to flow naturally but there were definite moments when it did. And when the conversations were natural, it was great, funny and touching.
I wasn’t sure where the story was going since the happy ending happened early in the book but then all ANGST breaks loose!! That was brilliant!!! That little twist made it all worth it! But I will admit, while I liked Cassie there were plenty of moments when I wanted to slap her repeatedly. She should have been the heroine that stood back and waited for Jack to come to her. She made it too easy for him and there’s enough of that to go around in real life situations.
What I loved about the book…the passion—the chemistry is amazing, the quarters (that was just too cute!) and all the angst surrounding the big reveal!! But most importantly, I loved the ending.
My final two cents: I’m glad I read it!
