Chrissy’s Review: I Loved It!
I absolutely loved The Perfect Game, and was so happy to hear we were getting more of Jack and Cassie (aka Kitten). This book did not disappoint, we got a look into what Jack was going through during the whole Chrystle thing and what he did to get Cassie back.
I had a love/hate relationship with Jack during The Perfect Game, and this time around its Cassie that I have a love/hate relationship. I truly adored Jack and who he is and who he became in this book. He had his faults, he owned up to them, and became one of my favorite book boyfriends all over again. Cassie on the other hand, she’s still insecure, and each time you think she’s going to come around, she lets insecurity ruin her and run her life. A few times I wanted to reach through my Kindle and strangle her (yes I know she’s a fictional character, but that didn’t stop me from wanting to try). I must admit though, I’m so pleased with who she ended up becoming, and her ability to grow and see outside of just herself. So after finishing I love her again, and don’t want to strangle her.
I absolutely loved the secondary characters even more, Trina, Mateo, Dean, Melissa, Gran, Gramps, and even Cassie’s boss Nora. and Vanessa. Still hate Chrystle and wished she would just get hit by a cab or something. I really want to see what is going on with Melissa and Dean, we know something is up! But I understand why we didn’t get more, this was Jack and Cassie’s story, not Melissa and Deans. The writing was amazing, and pulls you in, just like The Perfect Game, you laugh, cry, and get pissed with the characters, and fall in love all over again with them.
This story makes you really see, that not everyone is perfect, but once you find that one person you cannot live without, you need to decide are your faults and their faults worth losing that person, or can you help each other become better people? This is a story about true love, and finding yourself, along with the person you belong with. Its not always a happy road with sunshine and rainbows, but neither is life, and if you can make it through the dark times, your bright times are only better. Sometimes all you need to do is “Prove It” to the other that you can’t live without them
J. Sterling did an amazing job, I know some people are not as happy with this book as they were with The Perfect Game, but I say everyone has their own opinion, and mine is this book was AMAZING. I know their story has ended, but J. Sterling needs to continue writing about these other characters as well, they are so well written and deserve their stories to be told.
