He's a game she never intended to play.I'm currently wearing a Jack Carter shirt, no I'm not, maybe I am, but really. I'm not. Really. But, I kind of want one. Maybe this one. And, if I get that I'd have to get this. I'm a little obsessed, but it's ok. I think. Don't tell my husband, he thinks Jack Carter is from Titanic and we'll just let him think that because I already have too many fictional boyfriends (he might think I'm a little crazy). :)
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...
The Perfect Game was, I know I'm so cheesy, but PERFECT to me. In all of its unperfected glory. It's an issue filled book, a mistake filled book, a second chances book, and for me it was perfection. I loved it. I want a ton of copies of this book so that I can hand them out on the streets to random people and just be like, IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Ok. So maybe it won't (but maybe it freaking will), it really is a terrific read! I'm getting way out of hand here folks, this book did that too me. I'm smiling like a mad person writing all this up, this book, I'll tell you what.
Reading it I was reminded of the things I loved from Jamie McGuire's Beautiful Disaster, it has a similar feel (for me anyway) which was AWESOME! Fans of Jamie's are sure to love Miss Sterling (if you all don't already). But, it's not Beautiful Disaster, it's The Perfect Game and while it is about an arrogant jerk who we all fall in love with, this jerk is a very different kind, still pretty drool worthy though (if you like that sort of thing, i totally do).
J. Sterling broke my freaking heart, stepped on it, then handed it back to me with a bandaid on it. Yes, yes she did. I loved the ride though, it was pretty magical. And, that turn of events. Oh Jack... I kind of want to beat him with a baseball bat, but boys will be boys right. Well done.
It's a whirlwind romance filled with ups and a lot of downs. It's something fierce, and I was hanging onto every single word skipping ahead and going backwards to digest it all. I loved it, a lot. And, J. Sterling is pure awesomeness. If you haven't figured it out by now I'm a huge fan (and groupie), and I really think all of you will be too once you buy and devour this read.
I will never look at quarters the same again. Or watch a baseball game in the same light. So, this book kind of changed my life. TPG made me laugh my butt off and seconds later almost break my iPad in frustration. It is epic greatness and J. is the QUEEN.
I'm done now. Still smiling. And, done. Not done promoting though, you guys will be seeing me tweet and FB this book UP! But, I'm done bragging about how much I enjoyed this read because you need to just read it for yourself and if you have read it I'm sure you agree.
