I have mixed feeling about this book. And I'll tell you right now that there are a few itty-bitty spoilers below, so stop reading if you don't want to know why I have mixed feeling. If you do want to know, please, continue reading. That being said, they really are only itty-bitty spoilers so if you're looking for some big juicy spoilers you may want to look elsewhere.
Okay, so Jack is a cocky bastard who wants the one thing that he's not about to get--attention from miss awesomesauce Cassie. She doesn't fawn all over him like his other female admirers, so of course he wants her. It's a repetitive theme, so he's completely cliché.
Cassie gives him a chance, they fall in love, blah blah blah, oh, and then he cheats on her. Aren't men just wonderful? And then he decides to marry the girl he cheated with because she claims to be pregnant and he's a sucker. You couldn't have just waited until after this co-called 'baby' was born to have a pregnancy test and then see if the kid was yours and then marry the slut?
Sluts like the girl he married are the bitches in this world that give the rest of us girls a hard time when it comes to love and such. And men like Jack are the idiots who fall for the bitches shit. And I get that Jack has issues when it comes to his parents and he doesn't want it to be that way for his kids, but come on, and least make sure there is a kid before getting tied down. Especially to a gold digger.
The flip side of this was that the book was well written and really stirred up my emotions. I hated some characters, loved others, and wanted to wring several characters necks for being total idiots. But the author really knew how to make me as the reader all twisted up inside and fuming for days after I had finished the book. That is one mean skill there.

He's a game she never intended to play.
And she's the game changer he never knew he needed.
The Perfect Game tells the story of college juniors, Cassie Andrews & Jack Carter. When Cassie meets rising baseball hopeful Jack, she is determined to steer clear of him and his typical cocky attitude. But Jack has other things on his mind... like getting Cassie to give him the time of day.
They're both damaged, filled with mistrust and guarded before they find one another (and themselves) in this emotional journey about love and forgiveness. Strap yourselves for a ride that will not only break your heart, but put it back together.
Sometimes life gets ugly before it gets beautiful...
