The Perfect Game
by J. Sterling (Goodreads Author)

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...

OK I could not put this book down. Part of this book gutted me emotionally. I loved it for many different reasons 1) Yummy baseball star (always a sucker I am) 2) it is a book about true love and second chances.
First off Jack Carter is a cocky, arrogant, broken asshole who loves completely. Cassie another broken but loving soul who loves Jack for who he is NOT for what he does. Melissa the rock and super awesome best friend. Chrystle the selfish, psycho be-otch. (which just saddens me because unfortunately there are really those heartless bitches out there trying to get a piece of someone famous and will stop at nothing to get it.) And let's not forget Dean the super supportive and loving brother.
I wanted to put the book down right away when I came across a very visceral emotional time when Jack makes the worst mistake possible. I was shouting NOooooooooooo. Why Jack why? Thank goodness for Cassie's healing and huge heart and realizing love is more important.
Because this book put me on an emotional roller coaster and had a good ending.
I am giving it 5 thumbs up!
"I'm just saying that sometimes letting go is the only way to find out who you're meant to hold on to."(great friends have the strength to let you know the truth) -One of my favorite quotes from Melissa.
