The Perfect Game by J. Sterling

The Perfect Game

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

The Perfect Game- Teaser #2

“Dean! What are you doing over here?” Jack’s sultry voice echoed throughout the student union, and I felt my stomach lurch. My gaze settled upon his eyes, my annoyance clear.

“Oh, kitten. I see you’ve met my little brother,” Jack winked before placing his hand on Dean’s shoulder and squeezing.

“Thank God he seems nothing like you. I might actually be able to tolerate him,” I tilted my head and smiled sharply before taking a bite of my turkey sandwich.

“You need me to work some of that aggression out of you?” Jack offered with a sultry smile.

“I’d rather eat dirt,” I sassed, mouth full.

“I almost want to see that,” Jack chuckled and one dimple appeared on his cheek.

“You would. Go torture someone else,” I begged, eating more of my sandwich before looking away.

“But I like torturing you,” he said with a grin and moved to sit next to me.

“Uh, no!” I shouted before throwing my bag right where he was about to plop his perfect little ass. He stopped short and stood back up.

“Why so angry, kitten?” he whined.

“Why so annoying, jackass?” I mimicked his tone.

I took a bite of my pickle when Jack’s breath in my ear stopped my chewing. “You’ll come around. You’ll see. You can’t resist me forever.”

I wanted to spit my half chewed food all over his arrogant face. As I struggled to swallow, he walked away smiling.

Jen's Review

Just what I needed - A great story with real emotions -
LOVED this book! REALLY loved it -

Cassie and her BFF Melissa were headed to a collage party. This is Cassie's first year at the university, and her BFF/roommate is so excited to show her around.

When Cassie's eyes met with the hottie from across the parking lot, Melissa shook her head and told her to stay away from him.
Jack Carter. The schools big shot baseball player. But the Baseball field isn't his only playground.
Jack Carter has never slept with the same girl twice.

As Jack approached Cassie, she immediately put her guard up.
His cheesy pickup lines just showed off the truth about him. And even though Cassie was drawn to him, she knew he'd break her heart.

As the days went by, Jack seemed to pop up more and more around Cassie. Not giving her a chance without flirting with her. Asking her house. Even after turning him down time and time again.

Jack didn't date girls though. he didn't have to. So why was he putting so much effort into Cassie?

Finally Jack gave her to ultimate deal. ONE date. If she hated it, he would leave her alone for good.
Cassie didn't have much of a choice but to agree to it.

The first date, things were going really well. But Cassie couldn't decide if he was telling her the truth, or just trying to get into her pants.
After a few serious discussions, Cassie realized that there is more to Jack Carter than the world knows about.

I loved the chase. I could totally see something like this really happening.
I was totally thrown off about 65% into this book though when Jack was drafted. It's been so long since I cried like that over a book -

Stayed up too late to finish this, but I just couldn't put it down until everything was the way it was supposed to be again .

Check it out 

I just found out that there will be another book about these two coming out in 2013 - I'm anxious for that one now :)
