The most anticipated J. Sterling release of the year is finally here! You’ve waited years to meet Jack Carter’s son and the wait is over! Strap in and enjoy the ride. 

Chance Carter is the son of local baseball legend, Jack Carter. Now in his junior year at Fullton State, Chance is facing challenges he never saw coming. Failing a class will stop his draft season short, making him ineligible to play and pushing his goal of professional baseball even further away. 

In steps Danika, a mouthy tutor from New York, who only wants to help him pass his class… NOT get in his pants. But try telling that to Chance. He doesn’t trust girls and he definitely doesn’t trust his new tutor. A lifetime growing up as a Carter taught him that. 

But Danika has issues of her own. After an incident that happened last year, she doesn’t trust athletes and wants nothing to do with them. And Chance is no exception. 

The fireworks explode as the two try to deny the chemistry between them and family secrets are revealed. Chance doesn’t know how to give up on something he wants and he’s decided he wants Danika. There’s just one problem… she has a boyfriend she has no intention of breaking up with.

How can he have her when she belongs to someone else?

My Review:

So I’ve only read the one book by this author, The Perfect Game, and it kind of ends with a bit of a cliffhanger, or at least you don’t know how things go, so I still need to find out the ending to their story. But I mean I guess I know how it ends because the characters from that story, Jack and Cassie, are the parents of Chance in this story!

At first I was a little unsure because as it mentions, Danika has a boyfriend. But since there isn’t any cheating between Danika and Chance while she is still dating Jared, and when we really get to know what Jared is like, I was okay with how all of it went. The attraction between Danika and Chance was really felt in the story, and I liked both of them as well as the other characters we got to meet. Even with all the things that happened between them that some were what I’ve read in other stories, I liked the way the author had the characters deal with them and end up resolving them. To me it is the way that most people deal with things and I liked that a lot. It also had its steamy moments, the kind you’d expect with college aged characters.

I haven’t read the first book in the series, but I’ll have to find time to go back and read it, and I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in the series which will be Chance’s best friend Mac’s story, and I kind of hope maybe it’ll be Danika’s roommate’s story as well. But we’ll see where the author takes it!

Meet the Author:

I’m a New York Times and USA Today best selling author of over 18 books! My goal is to write stories that you can get lost in, that will leave a smile on your face and a full heart. If you can forget about the real world while you’re reading and fall in love with my characters, then I’ve done my job. A lot of what I write has real life aspects in it, but that’s what makes the stories so relateable- the fact that they could happen to anyone… and have! 

I live in California with my only son, Blake. If you can’t find me sitting behind a computer screen, then there’s a good chance I’m sitting in the bleachers of a baseball stadium watching him play. I love traveling to new places, meeting my readers and living life with the Real Jack Carter. ♡

I know you have a million books to choose from and I am humbled, grateful and thankful each time you choose to read one of mine, or tell someone else to read them. Thank you.
