Review: The Sweetest Game by J. Sterling

Add to Goodreads:
This is the third (and final) installment in Jack & Cassie's story!

“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 holiday’s missed, the birthday’s 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 and Cassie are now living in New York.  Cassie is really enjoying her job and their new life together.  Jack too has settled into their new life together, he loves his kitten and isn’t afraid to show it.
When Jack gets injured playing baseball Cassie bears the brunt of his frustration and anger, this side of Jack is something she hasn’t see before and she struggles to help him get through it.
It takes Jack’s family intervening to realise he is being an arse to Cassie and pull him out of his funk and when he finally does he makes it up to her in the way only sexy Jack F’n Carter can…
“Shower sex isn’t the same when you have a saran-wrapped cast on your good arm.  But I powered through it because I’m a team-fucking-player” - Jack
There are a lot of changes for this couple in this final instalment and we get more of Dean & Melanie too.  They learn to work through things together and further cement the beautiful love they have for each other.  I will miss this couple and I have loved every moment of it J
“Every moment with you is never enough; I always want more.  And I always will.” – Jack to Cassie
I give this 5 sweet Jack F’n Carter stars
