More About the Author

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 as amazing and awesome as you are???" And i'd love to give you a good reason, but the truth is... being This! Awesome! is clearly very scary to other less awesome people. :)

So I said screw them and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing books that mean something to me is a million times better than working my ass off for someone who doesn't really care about anything other than the bottom line.

My soul feels more satisfied.
My heart, more full.

So thank you for reading, loving and recommending the stories I write.
I think you're awesome- and not only am I not scared of other awesome people, I want them on my team!

I'd been itching to read this book since I heard it was about the fabulous Jack Carter, all round American badboy. A baseball player with a magic arm that wows everyone in his vicinity and looks that have girls dropping their panties without a second thought.

I put it off. I wanted to savor it. I kept waiting for a quiet moment to read them, in my own time. Finally, I couldn't wait any moment and started reading it on the train. Was it good? Let's put it this way. I'm glad I caught the early train to work because I was so caught up in Jack and Cassie's story, that I missed my train stop.

The Perfect Games tells the story of Cassie, one of the few girls who aren't ready to fall over themselves over the fabulous Jack Carter. Jack's intrigued. He's never had a girl who hasn't fawned over him. It's different. He's intrigued. So, he chases her.

Cassie likes Jack, but she hates everything he represents. She doesn't trust his smooth lines, his good looks or the way he treats girls. She doesn't want to fall for him. She swears she won't, so what what does she do? She falls for him and falls hard.
And it seems he falls back.

Cassie only asks one thing of Jack - stick to her four rules. If he slips one of them, up he's gone.

I really loved this novel on so many levels. Firstly, it's beautifully written. The flippant language between the characters made me laugh, grin and smile. It made it so real. And the hot guy didn't hurt either.

I really loved the inside joke with the coins. It was just such a cute thing to do. I've got to admit there were times I wanted to bitchslap Cassie but seeing the damage her father did to her, and the way she distrusts guys because of it made me realise she really was just human.

I loved this book, and I'm actually surprised I did. I know that sounds bad, but I normally wouldn't like the *incident* that happens in this one, but for some reason it totally worked. Well not for 'some' reason, the reason was that I absolutely fell in love with Jack... and Cassie for that matter! J. Sterling did an AMAZING job of introducing these characters, giving a great back story, using witty (and realistic) dialogue and letting the characters showcase their personalities. I kept wondering where is this going? Then saying "Oh, NOOOO!" then saying "Oh, YESSS!" It kept me guessing and I was HOOKED the entire time! I also loved Dean and Melissa and would have loved even more of their stories here, spin off perhaps? :) The ending was satisfying and I would totally recommend this book to others! <3

I have really mixed feelings about this book. The first half is almost a clone of Beautiful Disaster with Jack acting like a huge player who "never sleeps with the same girl twice" and gets in fights a lot (aka Travis). Cassie acts exactly like Abby as the girl who can resist him, but not really, and he instantly falls for her. They start dating quickly and he becomes possessively obsessed with Cassie. He even gives her an arbitrary nick name the first time they meet - Kitten (which makes as much sense as Pigeon, but at least is something cute instead of the cockroach of birds). Jack also beats people up, treats every other girl (EXCEPT Cassie and her best friend) like a slut.

Speaking of the best friend, Cassie's best friend is a clone of the BFF in Beautiful Disaster too. She fluctuates between warning Cassie off of Jack and telling Cassie to forgive Jack's constant bad behavior.

Despite the similarities to Beautiful Disaster, I still enjoyed the story for the most part.

The book starts deviating in plotline towards the middle when Jack gets drafted (for baseball).

****Major spoilers after this point!****

Jack cheats on Cassie, which I don't understand at all. I know he was drunk, but he was completely uninterested in this girl who won't leave him alone yet he KEEPS drinking until he's so drunk he goes home with her.

Of course, the girl ends up pregnant. Then Jack, who is the biggest moron ever, decides he has to marry the girl. He can't stand her, is in love with Cassie (who is willing to forgive him despite him cheating AND getting a girl pregnant), but he insists on torturing everyone by marrying the girl.

AND HE DOES IT. Despite Cassie coming down the day before to beg him not to.

When I started this book I thought it was going to be a good story, I started to really enjoy the characters and the "bad boy" but then I really didn't enjoy it at all. I do not like cheating at all. So this book was not for me, it really just broke my heart. And once that happened everything, everything else that happened afterwards was just dumb to me.

I finished the book. That was pretty tough for me in itself. I didn't really believe it. It was cliche all over the place. Typical bad boy sleeps with every one and then one girl walks into a party and gives him the eye roll and hes in love? Cut it out. That does not happen. The way they spoke, no cursing, please. If I had to read "freakin" one more time, I was gonna break my Kindle!

Some weird plot turns, I wasn't sure where the author was going, and ended up not really going much of anywhere (don't want to spoil anything).

As I have gotten out of my teens and in my mid 20's I find I am more emotional, even while reading books, all I felt this book was actual annoyance. It was kind of just silly.

For 3.99 I would look elsewhere. There are other .99 cent books that are better, and t least you can buy 4 of them!

(I don't like trashing peoples work, but I would hate to see people waste money even more, sorry).
