The Perfect Game by J. Sterling

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 getting Cassie to give him the time of day.

They are 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...

This is the first in a series, but doesn't end on a cliffhanger.

This is more of a YA book, because it deals mostly with the angst of young love.

Jack is a confident baseball player who never studies. He has the natural ability to impress both on and off the field and is highly sought after by the opposite sex. He knows that he's good looking and is never far from his fans. He has had a difficult life, in some respects, but you don't really learn too much about that right away.

His younger brother, Dean, is a sweetheart and he tries to soften his brother's image to Cassie, who has turned Jack down flat on multiple occasions.

Melissa and Cassie are great friends. They have been through quite a bit, and when they go off to school, nothing really changes. Both are confident and funny, don't take crap from anyone, and Cassie is also incredibly snarky, which I loved.

Jack has never had to work to be with someone. In fact, he can curl his finger in any girl’s direction and they come like a puppy. When he meets Cassie, not only is she beautiful, she turns him down with a snarky comment and a swish of her hips. Loved that!

Now, this story is not without young, hot jock mistakes. Jack’s are HUGE and I was very disappointed in him. I loved how Cassie knew she would go on, but wasn't without the hurt.

In the end, this was a great YA story that dealt with love, loss, growing up, and figuring out what was really important.

I got fired from my last job.

It's true.

I know you're sitting there thinking, "Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone like you?" And I'd love to give you a good reason, but the truth is that sometimes being all sorts of awesome isn't fun for other people. They don't always tend to like it. lol  :)

So I picked my pride off the floor, bought a laptop and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing stories that meant something to me was a million times better than working my ass off for someone who didn't really care about anything other than the bottom line.

My soul has never felt more satisfied.
My heart has never been more full.

I've never worked so hard in my life, but I love every second of it. I truly do.
It is SO worth it.
All of it.
Every moment.
The journey it took to get to this point- I wouldn't change a thing.

So thank you for reading, loving and recommending the stories I write to other people. Your word of mouth is my very best friend.... that and your reviews.  :)
I sincerely appreciate each and every one of you.
