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 hate leaving bad reviews, but honestly, I bought this book because of the RAVE reviews and feel people should know the hero makes a BIG mistake in this book, big, which to me, was unforgivable. Even in the end after all that suffering, I just didn't believe their "happily ever after". It seems more like a "happily until I screw up again".

From the beginning the hero promise not to fail the heroine, and he DOES. Why are we to believe his second promises? It really angered me that he'd hurt her like this. He was just NOT my hero to die for. I wouldn't have given him a second chance, no matter how much of a hot shot he is in baseball. I know this is personal and I'm very happy a lot of people have enjoyed this book, but I feel the slew of five star reviews definitely need some balancing out, so if you're sensitive to CHEATING, especially on the hero's part, please consider another story. Otherwise, enjoy! It was an enjoyable read to me until I got to that part and got me all frustrated. :(

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.

I hated the girl in this book. The fact that she would be out there begging for a cheater to take her back, no matter that the guy is doing everything for the girl he cheated with and nothing for the one he supposedly loves was just frustrating. I wanted to shake this girl like a rag doll !!!! Unfortunately, this is probably not something that doesn't happen, but we want to read about strong self reliant girls, not mealy mouthed beggars. Yuck.

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.
