I hate to pigeonhole an author, it's not fair to them, and I'm not implying here that Jordan was, it's just that when I think of her work, I immediately think of gripping, gritty, raw emotion. I think of hardened, tattooed men and strong-willed and sassy heroines. But after reading The Perfect Stroke, I'm thrilled to say that sexy romantic comedy is yet another genre that totally fits within Jordan Marie's wheelhouse. She is a natural, folks, and she totally nailed it!
This book was so funny and so very sexy. I loved everything about Gray and CC--the chase, their off-the-charts chemistry and their fabulous banter. I loved all the secondary characters, especially Gray's family, and I am praying to the gods of written romcoms that they bless Jordan Marie with inspiration so that we get their stories as well. She totally took me by surprise with this book, and it was an amazing thing. As a long time fan, to see her spreading her wings and taking flight in a different direction was, well, exhilarating and a breath of fresh air. Truthfully, I shouldn't have been surprised though, I've extolled the virtues of Jordan's exceptional writing abilities in reviews of her previous works, but still, there is no other way to say it than I was surprised, in the very best of ways.
I've always said that Jordan is a natural storyteller, and never ever has it been more evident than it was here in this book. I adore romantic comedies, and The Perfect Stroke was a fantastic one. So if you're thinking about picking up this book, but you're a bit wary, don't be. Let go of what you think you know of Jordan Marie and read this book.
Standalone though book 1 in a larger series
Told from both POVs
Minor editing issues
Please note: the book finished at 53% and there is another book by this author after it.
I liked the summary of this book so I decided it was worth testing an unknown author and I wasn't disappointed. This book had me laughing, gasping and fanning myself.
CC (aka Claudia Cooper) is a rough and tumble, quick witted kind of girl. She doesn't take crap from anyone and she calls them like she sees them.
Gray (aka Grayson) is a hotshot golfer who can't keep it in his pants.
By all accounts these two should have never crossed paths but fate has a way of making things happen when we least expect them. They both go into it thinking they are going to have a one night stand. Little do they know their paths will cross again.
I don't want to give too much away but there are some definite twists and turns in this book I didn't see coming. You will find yourself laughing out loud at the crazy that is Gray's family. I died laughing at certain parts.
Overall this book lived up to my expectations and I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.
CC is a sassy woman who has had it tough in life. She has never had a free pass and has had to work hard for everything she has earned and wanted. CC goes to the bar in the next town over to find someone that she can have a good time with who does not know her from the small town she has grown up in. Little did she know that the sexy golfer who walks into the bar and leaves with her for an amazing night of amazing pleasure would sweep her off her feet and make her heart feel things she has never allowed it to feel. This creates her to become scared and complacent in her life. She does not want to be hurt and does not want to take chances on things that could never last. CC wants her family to be proud of her and she wants to be proud of herself, so making choices and taking chances with Gray and letting herself experience things that she has denied herself for so long is hard to let go of.
This story takes the reader on their ride to find themselves as individuals but also as partners in life. Jordan Marie had me feeling like I was a part of the family by the time I was finished reading. Her humor is fantastic and I found myself laughing a lot and crying as well. My heart felt for Gray and CC and I did not want their story to end. This family that Jordan Marie has created is a huge family and they all have their unique stories and lives that I hope we get to find out and read about soon. I do not have a lot of family and I have always wanted one, reading this book gave me a feeling of what real family love is about and how no matter how much a family fights or how different they all may be the only thing that matters and keeps them going as a family is the love they have for one another. Thank Jordan Marie for giving me something to hold onto and for creating these characters to make me feel a sense of wholeness and belonging.

Love Gray and CC! I enjoyed the main characters, the plotlines, the Lucas siblings and their mother. Can't wait to read the next book in this series.
