"It's one hell of a sledgehammer to the chest when your baseball career comes to an end. It's like you finally realize that baseball never loved you back.

Overview

"It's one hell of a sledgehammer to the chest when your baseball career comes to an end. It's like you finally realize that baseball never loved you back. All the sleepless nights, the hours spent at the gym trying to stay fit, the conditioning, the training, the mental preparation, the holidays missed, the birthdays passed, the memories you didn't get to make with your family ... all for what? It's not like baseball lost any sleep over you. She didn't stay awake for nights on end, trying to figure out how to make you a better player. She didn't care. Baseball's a business. A sport. A game. And as much as my entire life has been wrapped up in it, it's time to let it go."
- Jack Carter

Jack F'n Carter, need I say more? If you thought he was swoon-worthy in the first two books you are in for a treat. We get to see a totally different side of Jack in The Sweetest Game.  This book left off right where book two (The Game Changer) left off- Jack and Cassie's wedding day. We get to see the whole day, not just the small glimpse we were left with in the previous book. From there J.Sterling takes us on the rocky journey that is Jack and Cassie's story. I don't want to go into too much detail because I don't want to ruin the story for you but just know that as is par for the course Jack and Cassie have to fight for their relationship, again, they have to overcome many battles and struggles but it is so worth it in the end. Jack shows us who he is without baseball, and let me tell you Cassie is one lucky biotch! He made my heart (and my panties) melt on more than one occasion; I loved Jack Carter when he was a cocky, womanizing, cheating jerk in the first two books but he jumped to the top of my book boyfriend list after this book! If you love this couple you do not want to miss this book; it is the conclusion and the HEA you have been desperately been waiting for since Jack dumped out a bag full of quarters on their date in the diner in The Perfect Game. Thank you Ms. Sterling for another great book, and an even deeper, more emotional side of Jack F'n Carter!

I have JUST finished reading this... then finished my then cold bath. *swoons* I can't help it, I Love Jack! and its sad that i can sit and read the book and laugh... It's a good job i read at home because i'd get some dodgy looks if i did that in public. It was a great ending to the series and i'm sad to see it end. I think we all need a Jack F'in Carter in our lives, even when it got tough and i did the whole "O.M.F.G He has not just gone and done that...and that...and that" I'd still forgive him (I Think) This is deff a series to read and fall in love with, and one that makes you sick over the how much he loves her. Can i get me one of those? Needless to say this is a book for the whole 5 stars

this was a great third book. I am not a huge fan of the language, but I am sure that is how baseball players talk in reality. Loved the ending to a great series.

Absolutely remarkable. This book was the perfect ending to the series. J. Sterling writes so perfectly and knows how to capture a readers interest. She is funny and very thorough in her writing. I love her books and I am sad to see Jack F'n Carter go but crossing my fingers for a movie someday. I recommend this book to every girl who is hard-headed, and has love for an athlete.

What a great ending to Jack and Cassie's story! Sometimes final books in a series can be dissapointing but Jenn Sterling does not dissapoint! So sad to bid Jack and Cassie farewell! One of my favorite series ever!

You know the tired old formula that we have grown to grudgingly read our way through? The whole "Okay.. it's book three.. we are wrapping it up with our feet dragging and our eyes skimming…" type of thing? This is not it.  What makes J. Sterling stand out among all of these other authors, is that she keeps it real and stands out as an example of how to tell a story. She took us on a journey of Cassie and Jack's lives and she didn't cheapen it by throwing in a couple of lines at the end about how they made, it stayed together, and lived happily ever after. She takes us through to the very end of the relevant  parts of their lives and wraps everything up with a nice realistic bow that offers a sense of comfortable closure for her readers. I don't normally give 5 stars - but I'm giving one for this book. Thanks J. Sterling, for doing it right! P.S. Extra points for the most hilarious Harry Potter reference EVER.

This book is amazing! I read it in just a few hours. J. Sterling has done it yet again. If you have not read this series I HIGHLY recommend that you do. Everyone should know Jack F'n Carter!

J. Sterling did it again. This was the best book in the series by far! I mean I loved the first book of course, but this last book of Cassie and Jack F'ing Carter was the best!! I loved how J. Sterling tied everything up perfectly. You seriously felt the love Cassie and Jack had for each other...I just loved it. But make sure you have a box of tissue with you cause I was seriously balling my eyes out! This story was all about the HEA of each character!! And I'm glad that we got to see that in this book. I couldn't help but fall in love even more with Jack F'in Carter!! Buy this book you won't be disappointed, and the ending is even better!!
