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.Read more ›
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. :(
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.Read more ›
