It's no secret The Game Changer was a little disappointing! Especially to be the last of Jack and Cassie but The Sweetest Game did not disappoint in finishing off this series! It somewhat felt a little rushed at times but that's bound to happen when your skipping months and years between chapters. The positive is I absolutely LOVE this. I love seeing where characters go in the future and not just a few months or a year but 5 to 10 years is great!!! This worked well in Jamie Mcguires Walking Disaster and worked great in this story! I also love how the epilogue was told from Chances point of view, something totally different and I loved it!!
It seemed to me that we were getting a story from Chance in the future but maybe I read too much into things!! Hehe it's hard to think how that story could go with a similar theme such as baseball so I'll be interested to read if anything does happen!
Well done Jenn on a beautiful finish to a wonderful series! I'll miss Jack but I know I will be pimping him for years to come! My Jack F'n Carter!!!
This was a beautiful extended epilogue for Jack and Cassie. This book dealt with Jack and Cassie continuing their life with Jack pitching for the New York Mets and Cassie focusing on her photography career...both of them following their dreams.
I was thinking this book would be about the typical happily ever after for our book couples. Well, there was some of that but a whole lot more. Dean and Melissa's story was also included and it was well written! I finally learned and understood what Melissa's deal was. It was very believable and made total sense. The dialogue between all of the characters was funny as all get out! The back and forth with Jack/Cassie, Cassie/Melissa, Jack/Dean had me laughing so hard. It was as if a real conversation was taking place. I loved it! There was also drama that went down with Jack and Cassie that was very interesting.
In conclusion of this series, I've learned about the other/business side of baseball and it's not all hearts and flowers. I never thought about how difficult and the sacrifices that need to be made in order to find a balance (if there truly is a balance). I could not imagine working under that kind of stress!!! Wow. Thank you J. Sterling for telling this wonderful, entertaining and educational story!! I enjoyed this series!
Why Not 5 Stars?
Simply, I would not consider reading this book again. There was nothing wrong with this book. It was interesting, mushy, great dialogue, excellent characters, etc. It's just not a book I would reach to and read again.
I thought the rest of the book was a genuine progression of life as a baseball player both on and off the field. Very sweet book. The epilogue was great. I enjoyed it.
I know a lot of readers were turned off by Jack after book one. Don't get me wrong, I wanted to rip Jack's balls off too after he did what he did. Any girl would want to do that. But we all have to remember that not all love stories are sugar plums and gum drop sweet. You have to be REALLY niave to think that a "perfect" or even good relationship doesn't come with problems or hiccups. Jack and Cassie weren't perfect and neither was their relationship. After all the s***Jack and Cassie went through in The Perfect Game and The Game Changer, I think it just made them stronger individually and as a couple. The business that Jack is in, I think that it was a good thing they went through what they did early on and were able to learn from it and move on. If it didn't happen in the beginning, the same issues and temptations would have arised somewhere down the line. Infidelity is a fact of life folks. Just look at the real life atheletes love lifes.
The Sweetest Game finds Jack and Cassie in more solid ground and living out their happily ever after. The couple is now married and moving in to the next phase in their lives. But just because these two are married now doesn't mean life is easy sailing from here on out. Like with all REAL relationships, you will hit a few bumps down the road road. Just because they've said their I do's doesn't mean they are excempt from having any more problems.
J Sterling could have easily left us with the HEA ending in The Game Changer but I think she did the right thing by telling us the story of Jack and Cassie after the wedding and what would happen when Jack's baseball career would eventually end. For so many years, baseball was such a huge part of Jack's life and who he was, but what happens when that career ends? How will it affect him, Cassie, and their relationship? These are all the questions that Sterling eventually answers for us and left me in an even happier state of satisfaction for Jack and Cassie.
For fans of this series and of Jack F'n Carter, I think that you will all be satisfied how these two have made it this far and how much they've learned since they first met at that college party. Jack wasn't perfect when we met him and he isn't totally perfect in this book. He will still piss you off but not in the way he did in book one or two. There is no doubt in my mind that these two belong to each other and J. Sterling has left me feeling that after we leave these two that they WILL have a HEA. For fans of Dean and Melissa, don't worry, Sterling gives us an HEA for these two and I'm glad that they finally go their act together because I was wanting to rip my hair off if I didn't get some kind of closure for these two.
The Sweetest Game was a sweet ending for a series that I discovered and ended up loving. This series is definitely worth all the quarters in the world and if you're a fan of this series you'll definitely want to read this.
Now I must wait to find out if or when Chance's books will be released. (You'll have to read this book to find out who Chance is.)

Jack and Cassie will forever be one of my favorite book couples. I think, if given the choice to step into one of my books, this would be in the top 5.Read more
