Review – The Perfect Game by J. Sterling

Blurb:

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…

My Thoughts:

I had read that this one was a good and sweet story and I have to say that I do agree! I fell absolutely in love with Jack Carter the minute he was introduced. I have always have a soft spot for egotistical, thinks highly of themselves bad boys! I mean who doesn’t?!

I enjoyed this one more than I thought because I wasn’t sure when I had started it if I was in the mood for a more tame book (compared to some of the books I have been reading) but it was a nice fun read. As I was reading I enjoyed it so much I was starting to wonder if this was going to be all good or if there was going to be a twist somewhere and just when I thought okay this is going to all be a happy fun book BAM.

There were times I was laughing because well lets face it they made me laugh when they were together a lot of the time. But they drove me crazy sometimes when they were together they were so worried about getting hurt they were afraid to open up to each other it is best explained:

“You’re both so screwed up alone that together you’re like the perfect mess.”

But I think for me (as well as others out there) there was a connection from being hurt in the past that you know exactly what it is like to want to put up that wall and not let anyone over because you just don’t ever want to be hurt again. So when reading some parts I just couldn’t help but want to yell out “AMEN” but then had to remember I am reading a book not at church. 🙂

“There will come a time in your life when you lose something that matters to you. You’ll fight for it and you won’t win. But what really matters isn’t the war you’re waging, it’s that you don’t lose the person you are in the midst of the battle.”

There are so many parts of this book that I could totally relate to and I enjoyed it for that. Reading a book that you can connect to on a personal level is always good and because of that it will always stick with me. I do also enjoy the jerky Jack Carter! He would have to be on my top of book boyfriends because of that! 🙂
So for anyone who wants a good read that does have angst in it but will drive up nuts because you want to scream WTF is wrong with you???? COME ON!!! Get with it FOOL!!! All those came from my mouth while reading .

About Momma's Books

Found my new love for books when a good friend sent me the Sookie books and I was stuck in a paranormal state and only wanted that then I came across Shayla Black and read her Wicked Lovers Series which got me into the contemporary romance with a "twist" and since then I have just been a reading fanatic! And LOVE every minute of my escape from reality. View all posts by Momma's Books
