Publisher's Summary

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...

OMG! I loved this story!

Where does The Perfect Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of my favorites. I bought it for my kindle originally and then audible had it available and I bought it there. So glad that I did cause I truly enjoy the emotion the narrator adds.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how real the storyline is. You can relate to the characters.

What about Dara Rosenberg’s performance did you like?

I liked how her voice was able to interpret the emotions of the characters.

Any additional comments?

I have already pre-ordered the sequel for my kindle...I hope audible will get it!

Why Oh Why Don't I Preview it Before I Buy?

What would have made The Perfect Game better?

This is one of my favorite eBooks, and I bought the book because the sequel gets released next week and I don't have time to re-read it before it's released. So the story is great, but the audio ruins it for me. I dislike the narrator immensely. If I had paid more that 2 bucks for this I'd be ranting right now, but I am so disappointed. I am literally 5 minutes in and want to scratched my eardrums out. I don't think I will be able to finish this one and that irks the hell out of me cuz I have 8 more hours of work!

I don't think they try to match the voice with the character in the book. This Dara Rosenberg would be better suited in a quirky comedy like the vampire Molly Harper cooks and not a contemporary romance.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dara Rosenberg?

anyone with a smoother voice. her raspy one annoyed me. I like Jill Redfield from the Crossfire novels or I like Grace Grant and Justine O'Keefe. Um, I'd even pick the lady who handed me my Egg McMuffin through the drive through this morning.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story is the redeeming quality.

Great story, annoying narrator

I love these three books! However every audiobook I’ve heard with this narrator has been a struggle to the finish.

Terrible writing, terrible narrator

I wanted to like this book. I really did. The writing is so horrible that I can't understand how it got published and put on Audible. I couldn't stand the main female character. She was whinny and really ignorant. The main male was not bad. I didn't really have any problems with him. There was one part in the middle of the book that was so bad, I had to quit listening. If a female gets hit in the face multiple times by a big guy, she not going to walk away with a few scratches. She probably not going to walk away at all. And they didn't even take her to the hospital? Come on. The narrator was horrible on this book too. They could have found someone better. Someone who put a little effort into changing up the voices a little so you could tell who was who. I guess that's too much to ask for.

Review is for narration, not book itself.

Narrator's voice is a little grating to me. Kind of... Loud? Overly exuberant, no matter the context? Also, she says some stuff weirdly. The most obvious one that happened a bunch of times (and got more and more annoying) is that every time she says "breathed" she pronounces it "breath-d" rather than "breathe-d." The different characters didn't have very distinct voices, so sometimes I lost track of who was talking.

Horrible Voice!!!

I have to say that I LOVE this story, and this series is one of my all time favorites, but OMG Dara Rosenberg as the narrator totally RUINED this story for me. She made Jack and Cassie sound ANGRY throughout the whole book. There were also time that I thought I was listening to Dorothy from the "Golden Girls". Horrible, ANGRY raspy voice with no real difference in the characters.

Good Story Marred by Horrible Narration

The narrator's voice was annoying and she was not able to maintain different tones for each character or convey the emotion relayed in the text properly. Her voice would sound harsh or aggressive when the character was supposed to be joking etc. The poor narration really ruined the story for me.

Don't waste your time

Girl meets basketball player falls in love and it all goes downhill.
The story is truly bad. The narrator's voice is straidand and the hero is truly stupid.
Good luck if you decide to purchase this book.
I am going to try to get my money back.

Loved Jack F'n Carter-didn't care for the narrator

If you could sum up The Perfect Game in three words, what would they be?

Passion, Happiness, Journey

What did you like best about this story?

Jack F'n Carter - enough said :-)

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dara Rosenberg?

Honestly, I don't know - Cassie needs a certain level of enthusiasm and pep but I felt like I was being screamed at half the time (especially Jack) and it got a little annoying.

If you could take any character from The Perfect Game out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Once again....Jack F'n Carter

Any additional comments?

I read the book in 2012 and the core story and everything I loved about Cassie and Jack was still there but the delivery just made me cringe. I felt like the narrator was yelling half the book, it was just too over the top and excitedly dramatic ALL the time and I couldn't stand the way she did Jack's part. If I didn't love the characters and the story so much, I may not have finished the audio.

Horrible Voice

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dara Rosenberg?

This is one of my favorite books, but the audio book is painful to listen to. I'm 10 minutes into it and I'm calling it over... I can't take anymore. They should have gotten the woman who did the "Thoughtless" series.
