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...


Suitable for ages 17+ Contains strong language, sexual situations and references

I loved them snarky. I loved them sweet. I just loved Jack and Cassie.

All the girls wanted him...except her...and he can't get enough...
The first part of the book is hilarious with them playing off each other. Fun, witty, sassy, and sarcastic. He pursues. She deflects and puts him in his place. They surprise everyone because this is not typical Jack behavior. He sleeps with a girl once and once only. He does not date. He does not give out his number. He is the true playboy--love them and leave them kind of guy.

"Why so angry, kitten?"
"Why so annoying, jackass?"

"Every other girl is always clamoring to get near me and you're the first girl trying to get the hell away."

"It costs fifty cents to touch every time you touch me, Don't do it again." 

Jack Carter is awesome. He is a playboy, attention whore, arrogant, hot, sexy, College baseball star. I loved how he was a cocky, sarcastic ass but had a sweet side. Despite their trust issues they were better together. 

Cassie's Rules...Rule number one: Don't lie. Two: Don't cheat. Three: Don't make promises you can't keep. And four: Don't say things you don't mean.

"Jesus, I've never met two people more scared to let someone love them than the two of you."

"You're both so screwed up alone that together you're like the perfect mess:"

He was protective, not afraid to share his feelings, and appreciated her from the beginning. She allowed him to be himself and saw the real person behind the image. I adored their relationship. 

"I've never loved anyone before so go easy on me."

"I love you. I'm sure I'll fuck it up because I don't know what the hell I'm doing. Just promise me that you'll be patient with me. Grade me on a learning curve or something?"

I did not know about a certain situation that some reviewers posted spoilers for so it came as a surprise to me. A big mistake and although he tried to handle it admirably, it did not make anyone happy. I hate it when smart people do dumb things and are so gullible on top of it. And yes, I wanted to smack Jack with my kindle multiple times in the last part of the book. But I never stopped hoping that their love would prevail despite some tough times. 

"This wasn't how our story was supposed to go Jack. We weren't supposed to end like this."
"You think I don't know that? Our story wasn't supposed to end at all."

And Oh my, he made me swoon with one of the cutest "I want you back" moves I have read. He really turned out to be such an endearing, romantic guy despite his mistakes. I loved that there were dual POV and an epilogue. I am totally nervous now about the new book The Game Changer to see what happens to them. I do not want more drama for them! 

"You're my game changer, you know that?"
"The one girl who changes everything. The one you'd give it all up for."
