***YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.***
I HATED THIS BOOK.
Why, you ask?
#1. Jack is a JERK!
#2. Cassie is a MORON!
And #3. JACK IS A JERK!
Look, all this book is… is Jack and Cassie going back and forth completely destroying each other. I mean, he cheats on her with someone who he ends up getting pregnant.
Then he LEAVES Cassie to marry Miss Pregnant Lady.
And then he comes BACK to Cassie, and not only does she take him back.
Ooooh no. You want to know what she does?
She apologizes to HIM!...more
When I first heard about this book, I was all like...
Sweet heavens! Jerks are the way to my heart!
Then I started reading and I was like...
Jack Carter, you are on the top of my Jerk of My Dreams shelf, first in line and all the way to the left. You're sitting right next to Jack Howard from the Avoiding series. Trust me buddy, that's a good thing.
Gave me the biggest, dumbest, grin on my face the whole time
Made me want t...more
it would be 1 star (didn't like) but the way jack apologized in the fucking end, IN THE END, actually saved the book. i mean i was so frustrated with them! this review will contain lots of spoilers so please don't tell me you haven't been warned, because i ain't hiding them!
it was like reading soft version of "beautiful disaster";
all the time he called her kitten and all the time i tried to remember why is that so fucking familiar to me too, together wi...more
I absolutely adore the feeling you get when you've found an incredibly fan-f*cking-tastic book. A book that takes you from happy, to thrilled, to anxious, to sad, to gutted, to depressed, to on top of the freaking world. An amazing book to me, is a book that I will remember almost every moment once I've read it. It's a book that devours my heart, soul and mind. It sticks with me and when it ends I want to cry because I'm so attached to each of the characters, that the thought...more
I mean, really…
This book... Well, this book… I can't say that I really hated it, but I also know that I didn't love it either. So, that leaves me somewhere in the middle… I guess.
***MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD***
The main reason that this book infuriated me were the two main characters and their immature behavior. Particularly that of: Jack Carter.
What. A. Jackass.
See, in the beginning of the story, Jack is a the typical famous playboy athle
I'll start by saying overall this book was a good, easy, contemporary read.. I usually love the ones centered around people in college etc.
I absolutely loved the characters in the beginning, with Jack's protective, overbearing, loving, passionate and cocky attitude and Cassies "kittens" tough, beautiful and strong personality.
The storyline was going so well.. and then BAM, the cheating incident occurred. I'll admit the way it happened seemed pretty believable to me, and I can unders...more

There is a few things I want to say about the author of this book before I get started .
This is J.sterlings 3rd book . She wrote 2 other books in the YA genre .
In Dreams & Chance Encounters. Both are great books
I make no secret of the fact that I call Jenn AKA J.Sterling a friend . She is an amazing person with a larger than life personality, a sense of humour that calls to my funny bone lol & a huge heart that makes me love her. I can also be c...more
I have decided to petition the author to rename this book: The Perfect Lobotomy, due to all the brain cells that were destroyed during its reading.
This book was an epic...
That's right. Fail.
Never. NEVER before have I encountered two characters I actively wished death upon. I not only wished death on these characters, I wished for it to be slow and painful, preferrably consisting of some kind of flesh eating disease that rotted off body parts b...more
Girl meets boy......and of course they fall in love!!
They meet at a frat party and even though Scarlett has been warned of his "player status." She eventually falls head over heels in love with the star pitcher of the baseball team.
“He was beautiful. And he was charming. And a man-whoring pig. God, what is wrong with me?”
Oh yeah and he looked good in that tight baseball uniform....WHEW!!
“It’s irritating how good he looks in his uniform, right?”
I jerked my head back toward her. “Se...more
Hmmmmm so, for me, if I'm 100% honest this book wasn't perfect. It wasn't until the latter part of the book, probably from around the 60% mark when I finally started to warm to the characters.
Let me get my moans out of the way:
I found the dialogue a little clichéd and too telling in places, it wasn't subtle enough, if that makes sense? Sometimes less is more and actions speak a thousand words.
Also Cassie's character, to start with, was all over the plac...more
I love romance and I love baseball, so when you put the two together, I’m all over it. So with that said, I can’t believe that I balked at reading this!
I was hooked from page one. I couldn’t put it down. I even read it while watching game 7 of the NLCS between the San Francisco Giants & the St. Louis Cardinals…which made for an interesting soundtrack to the book.
(view spoiler)[When Jack cheated, I worried that I would hate him. Because one thing I can’t stand is cheaters. But, I di...more
To sum it up: 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 and 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 b...more
I chose to read this book when I heard it was somehow similar to Beautiful Disaster since they both had bad tempered main characters and everything. I generally don't mind bad [fictional] boys. They are hot and since I enjoyed Beautiful Disaster so much, I was so excited to start this book. Boy, never have I ever been so disappointed! Everything about...more
College love can be intense and earth shattering and also the place where you meet "The One". The one that changes everything for the good and the bad. This is a story of that kind of love.
Meet Jack fucking Carter he's a college baseball superstar- He doesn't date. He just sleeps with girls and all their friends. He was beautiful. And he was charming. And a man-whoring pig.
Meet Cassie aka Kitten- She's sassy, she's tough and says plays hard to get with Jack. But she has trust i...more
Jack and Cassie are both emotionally damaged by their parents. They have an issue with trust and letting someone in for...more
★ I actually really enjoyed this book, for starters. The characters were great. Cassie was easy to like and i fell in love with Jake Carter from moment one. He reminded me a lot of Jude Ryder from CRASH by Nicole Williams, who i totally and completely love. Jake is the school's biggest player, and no girl can resist him. Except for Cassie. I loved reading how he got her to finally date him and how sweet they were together. (view spoiler)[but the fact that he cheated on Cassie made me sick. I don...more
Favorite line - "My heart belongs to you. And I'm not asking for it back, even if you don't want it anymore. I'm just asking for a chance to have yours again. I promise I'll be more careful with it this time."
I almost cannot believe i am saying this but girlies, this book did not rock my world. I was seriously angry throughout a lot of this book, i found this at times really trying. I do not know if i just was not in the right mind set for an mature YA or if maybe i...more
The author is an awesome person, and she's written an AWESOME story! College, sports, drama, angst....this one has it all. Plus, my favorite, an epilogue! Yay!! Can't recommend this one enough:)
***There may be some minor spoilers but not many. I really try to stay away from spoilers.***
Oh boy. Where do I start with this book? I had a pretty good idea what happens in this book before I started it. What I didn't realize, however, is how emotionally involved I would get. Ms. Sterling made me fall in love with this couple, then ripped my heart out, and then put it back together. What an exhausting, crazy, emotional rollercoaster ride this story turned out to be.
You’re both so screwed up...more
I'm not real sure where my thoughts are on this book. I had very high expectations for it, and sadly I'm also a little disappointed.
For me, this book was too similar to Beautiful Disaster and because of that, it was hard for me to get into this book since Beautiful Disaster happens to be one of my favorite books. I felt there wasn't a lot of development between the characters in the beginning of the book. It was almo...more
So I said screw them and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing books th...more
