Jack appeared at my door last night after six months of no communication wearing a Mets jersey and holding a dozen red roses. He told me he was sorry, that he loved me, and that he would earn my trust again. It took everything in me to not fall apart at the mere sight of him. I wanted to take him back into my life, but I needed to know that this time it would be forever…

I almost don't even want to read this after how pissed off I got while reading the first one but I'm curious to see why this story is continuing. I want to see where this is going. But I swear to God if Jack cheats on her again then that's it. I will quit. I'm done. And I'll be so insanely pissed that I gave this book a chance.


Just as bad, if not worse than the first one. Basically Cassie forgave him right away, trusted him right away, and acted like him cheating on her never happened. Then

2.5 Stars!

Dragged up, over the top dramatic and not needed are the few words that come to my mind when I think how I'd label this book.


Even if the people begged, and the author wrote a continuation at least it should have been something interesting and mental like the first book. NO. This was so cliché, the kind that "I've been there and read that types."


According to me, this book was NOT NEEDED. It was forced upon randomly.
The first book nicely ends in a simple epilogue.. if needed the author c

Am I the only one who is hoping that this sequel isnt real, or that if its real, its actually just The Perfect Game told from the perspective of another character? The way The Perfect Game ended was fine. Cassie and Jack's story seemed over to me. The only reason I could think of as to why there would be a sequel is that Jack is gonna fuck up. Again. And in all honesty, I'm not interested in having my heart ripped out by him again. The first book ended with the two of them living "happily ever a ...more

If Jack cheated again, then Cassie's pathetic. I wont read it.

Finished & I'm not sure how to feel. Am I sure this was a Contemporary Romance or a Fantasy Romance? Cause nothing about this was realistic. Just one big drama-rama piled into one book. Was like reading a very scripted reality show *cough* The Kardashians *cough*. Not bad, but not good at all

So... looking at the reviews for this one, it seems like readers will either LOVE it or HATE it... not much in-between... I for one LOVED IT!
Jack Carter is my ALL TIME favorite Jerk. Is it just me, or do you all just melt when he calls Cassie ‘Kitten’? Even though Jack was far from perfect in The Perfect Game, I still fell for him. For all those that didn’t love Jack in book one, he really turns it around in this one, and for all those like me who loved him in book one, you will love him mo

So,okay. At first I was like... Jack:


But the more I read the angrier I became. All of the bad things he did to Cassie came back. I couldn't forget the fact that he C-H-E-A-T-E-D (To painfull to say)... And she forgave him so fast!

I loved Jacked in the first book, but somehow I couldn't continue... I'm not a masochist!

I tried to give you a second chance Jack! I'm sorry, I tried ok? I tried...



BUT...No matter what:


I'll never let you go, Jack. I'll always remember the nights
This book... this book.... ugh...this book typifies so much what is wrong with women today...this book makes me want to step on my soapbox with a big ass microphone... but I'll save that for the end.

Here's what you really want, to know
The first 30% (kindle marked) of the book is all about Jack recapping how he spent that six months before he went to get Cassie back in New York, aka Kitten (what a dumb name btw). It's told in a writing style that kind of bothered me, but basically Jack and

I am scared to read this book after finishing the last one. But ALAS... I will read it and hope to god that Jack doesnt fuck up like he did last time. I will seriously hunt his fictional ass down.


Well I read it and thank God i didn't have to kill Jack! That would have sucked. I know some people got annoyed with Cassie, but I didn't. I think I would have reacted the same way as she did to everything. So I can't blame the girl.

I liked the second half of the book more than the first half...

Arrrrrgggggghhhh another book


I'm confused, I don't think there is a need for a second book especially with the way it ended in the 1st book. Why can't authors leave this alone and stop trying to milk series out of their stories, it's driving me crazy. Grrrr! I think I'll wait to read spoilers rather than read it (yeah right, I'll probably read it), especially if he cheats again.

Maybe she'll cheat instead....hmmm...

And just like that she was gone. But not before saying the two fucking words that plague my nightmares. This girl is always asking me to “prove it.” I deserve it after everything I’ve put her through. She doesn’t trust me anymore.
I wouldn’t trust me either.
It’s ironic though right? That I’m the one left standing all alone in a parking lot this time. I swear if my heart could leap out of my chest and into my hands, it would. I imagined that for a moment…the blood trickling t

First of all if you haven't read book one go back and read about the angst and the rollercoaster that is Jack and Cassie and come back!
Ok for the rest of you I'll continue..

We start right from when we finished in the book one Jack and Cassie are together once again starting there new life in New York, but before Jack starts with his new team They both have a day to go over the past 6 months that they have been apart and why it too

Okay, I wasn't particularly thrilled with the first book but there is just something about Jack F*cking Carter that made me need more. It didn't hurt that they would be older in this one and hopefully more mature.

The story picks right up where the last one ended...and it was very sweet. However, right after we get pushed back into all the emotional drama since Cassie has to know everything that happened. I'm a bit torn about some of the reasons but then I can understand some of the others

The Game Changer is about forgiveness, communication, trust, standing by your man, LOVE , integrity, and one evil lying b*tch!!! (view spoiler)

The additional characters add to the story and the troubles of our gorgeous couple, we see the bitch 'mean wives' club, a fabulously dishy driver and, of course, the lovely Dean & Melissa. (I'm hoping Dean gets his own story, he's a cutie. ♥) They all help t

This story explains all the questions about the time Jack spent away from Cassie. It had been 6 months since Cassie had seen Jack when he showed up on her doorstep asking for another chance. We get to experience his viewpoint on his anguish, his hurt and his determination in getting back the love of his life after he made that one big f*cking mistake.

This review might contains little spoilers

The drama is slightly better than the first one. It's a continuation of what's left on the previous book when Jack Carter and Cassie Andrews reunited. 25%-30% of this book, we get to see Jack's point of view on The Perfect Game during their breakup. It's nice hearing his side, despite of me being mad on his character. At least, he cleared up everything and he regrets it.

The rest of the story is about Cassie Andrews difficulties on bala

Loved this book! 4.5 stars! The only part I had a hard time with was when Jack have her a hard time for wanting to take a break for a couple of can he get mad at her after he cheated?! Other than that, it very much lived up to my expectation! Thank you J. Sterling!
This is one of the worst books I've ever read so far. I swear. This review is gonna be short because I don't want to waste more time with it. After finishing The perfect game, I wasn't sure about reading this second book because even though I enjoyed parts of TPG, others not so much. But some of my friends were planning a BR of The game changer so I decided to join it because If there's anything I love is reading and chatting books with them. That was the best part for sure.

2.5 stars. Am keeping this one short and sweet.

If you are really invested in this story and the characters - AND like little inconsequential events to be over dramatized - WITH - a predictable and sugary HEA, you'll probably enjoy it. Hell, if that's your thing, you'll probably LOVE it!
But for me... uh, 'no'.
What's really funny, is I hated Jack in the first one, but in the sequel, I quite liked him and was rooting for him. It's Cassie who annoyed the crap out of me in this.

So, I'll just post

I have to be honest, The Perfect Game stressed me out so much. It hit really close to home for me and I was troubled about it for days after. However, I did like Cassie and even though I wanted to smack Jack (more than once), his character is appealing. And I was happy with the ending, but going into THE GAME CHANGER, I really needed to see certain things happen. I really needed to see Jack redeem himself a bit more and I really needed a strong happy ending. That's a lot of really's, right? Well ...more

I was gonna write a proper review on this one... but fuck it LOL Dex is waiting for me and I really think I have spent too much time reading Cassie and Jack.


So I really enjoyed the first book, had a lot of fun with these two flawed characters and the way they kept fucking everything up. But this book was unnecessary and boring.


I appreciate all the explanation at the beginning of the book and that's probably the reason behind those 3 stars, and well they were sweet at certain points and I liked

I have some mad love for J. Sterling. Not only as an author but as a genuinely nice person that cares about and talks with her fans. That being said, I find myself extremely lucky to have had the chance to read "The Game Changer" prior to its release.

This book for me was a solid 4 stars throughout most of it. I have this little requirement for a book to earn that 5th has to evoke some sort of emotion in me, whether it be that it makes me cry, gives me goose bumps, turns me on, etc. Th

What is this about?? I thought it ended with TPG? Seemed like a good ending for me at that time but what the hell, if Sterling wishes to write more of Jack and Cassie then I'm more than willing! Can't wait for the release! P.S. i kinda haven't completely forgiven Jack also.

Post reading:
I stand by what I said pre-releasing of TGC, that TPG already had the perfect ending. I feel that the development of major conflicts were a bit lacking. Like Matteo's for example, his and Cassie's rela

Jack is the worst hero EVER! I can’t believe some of these reviews talking about how much they love him, and that he redeemed himself and making excuses for his cheating. What the fuck! I don’t care how drunk he was, that’s no excuse! He’s a piece of shit, and Cassie is pathetic.

Men use being drunk as an excuse to cheat, and weak women fall for it too damn much. I read this comment on an article about cheating awhile ago and it is 100% true. “A drunk man's actions are a sober man's thoughts. If
