After reading this you will never be able to look at a quarter the same way again. AND YES I am referring to currency that totals twenty-five cents.

"Your my game changer, you know that?"
"Game changer?"
I shook my head unsure of the meaning.
"The one girl who changes everything, the one you'd give it all up for."
He brushed his thumb down my cheek.
"I don't want you to give everything up."
"I know that. But here's the thing about baseball, Kitten. There's an expiration date for every single one of us that plays and we all know it. Eventually my baseball career will come to an end, and I can live with that, but I can't live without you."
~Jack and Cassie

I fell hard, HARD for Jack Carter. This man had me wrapped around his pinky. And then he crushed me, and I broke into a million tiny pieces that scattered away the second the wind blew. **sighs heavily** Why Jack?? Whhhhyyyy?!??

In The Perfect Game Cassie Andrews a photography student in her Junior year in college meets Jack Carter the school star athlete. He is a baseball player. A pitcher with a fastball that has scouts lined up to watch him play. He is also known as a man-whore on campus. A man-whore who has never slept with the same girl twice.
When Melissa, Cassie's best-friend and roommate sees Cassie spot Jack. She puts the brakes on and asks Cassie to promise her that she will steer clear of him. Cassie promises...but it doesn't hold weight. Jack zero's in on Cassie and her constant rejection spurs him on. He wants her now and he won't stop until he gets her. And he does...he gets her.
Annnnndddd then he... Breaks. Her. Heart.


I loved him. I hated him. Then I fell for him all over again. I enjoyed this book it was filled with lots of witty banter between Jack and Cassie, and with Melissa and Cassie. Melissa was an excellent best-friend she kept it 100% with Cassie and never ever said things to placate her or the circumstances surrounding Jack. Jack was the epitome of a bad-boy and he played up to that role everyday of his life.

Both Jack and Cassie had parentage issues that effected them deeply. And this showed in their actions often. This book takes two unexpected turns. One felt out of place yet the author used it to her advantage. For one: It showcased Jacks alpha male 'I will kick your ass' side. For two: You really began to see through his macho male ego that he truly loves and will do anything for Cassie. The second curve ball thrown was not unexpected but was still SHOCKING and pretty much drove me insane.
I will not say more for fear of saying to much. I will say that I got my HAPPY ENDING!! **claps hands**

Fave new word


"Way to ruin a perfectly good moment with your craptitude"

He mocked.
"Yeah. Your crappy attitude."

Fave Line

"It cost fifty cents every time you touch me. Don't do it again."
This is a fave line because Jack is sure to use it to his advantage... In ways you would never!!!!!
