THE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT MATCH (Suttonville Sentinels #3)

THE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT MATCH                                  KENDRA C. HIGHLEY

Pitcher Dylan Dennings has his future all mapped out: make the minors straight out of high school, work his way up the farm system, and get called up to the majors by the time he’s twenty-three. The Plan has been his sole focus for years, and if making his dreams come true means instituting a strict “no girls” policy, so be it. 

Lucy Foster, needlepoint ninja, big sister to an aspiring pitcher, and chicken advlike, like a little mayhem. So what if she gets lost taking her brother to baseball camp…at her own high school? The pitching coach, some hotshot high school player, obviously thinks she’s a hot mess. Too bad he’s cute, because he’s so not her type. 

Problem is, they keep running into each other, and every interaction sparks hotter than the last. But with Dylan’s future on the line, he has to decide whether some rules are made to be broken…

Disclaimer: This book contains a crazy night of moonlit skinny-dipping, a combustible crush, and kisses swoony enough to unwind even the most Type A athlete.


MY REVIEW:
     A really fun summer read.  Quick, witty, sassy, and quirky lead female character.  She is bold and knows what she wants and goes after it.  Lucy Foster is not afraid to learn new things, change them up, and make them her own by putting her own fair on it.  She will blaze her way into your world and make it a better place.
     She has a young brother Otis who is nine-years-old to her seventeen-years-old.  While she is off for summer break she is helping her mom care for Otis.  She also, works at her mom’s quilting store, she has her own embroidery business within her mom’s store that commissions big bucks for her handy work, not to mention her dad is deployed adding to the stress, and her mom gets a lot of major migraines that take her down for the count.  Leaving Lucy to be her mom’s mini me.  She has a lot on her plate.
     She has one flaw that sometimes causes her problems it is that she’s GPS challenged.  She can’t seem to get out of a paper bag.  So, when her mom asks her to start taking Otis on Monday to baseball camp for the next two weeks she’s like, Sure!  Otis is like, “No!  Way!”  He proceeds to have a meltdown.  Yelling that Lucy had gotten lost picking him up from the elementary school.  She said in her defense that she hadn’t been there in six years.  He said, yeah but you went there for seven.
     But when she was there ten minutes late a cute sexy high schooler came up to them and said welcome to Otis.  Otis told him his sister got lost.  He was like yeah coach lost.  Coach Dylan Denning looks at Otis and tells him it’s okay.  Then Lucy asks what time it was over.  Dylan says, Noon and she thinks he’s getting snippy.  That’s when Otis comes off the mound and tells Lucy to leave Coach alone.  She gets a look like Coach?  Then says, “He’s my age.”  Coach?  Was like, what age is that?  She says, incoming senior.  She decides to stay for practice.  She was being a pill.
     Although, they pushed each other’s button.  Even though girls were on Dylan’s no fly list since he was dedicated to becoming a pitcher on a minor league team.  He wanted to get drafted out of high school.  He had been working on this goal since forever.  No dating, limited diet, early to bed, no life really.  So, why was this girl getting in his head?  As far as Lucy she was pretty much in the same boat.  She had jobs backlogged for her custom order items for her embroidery works plus everything else there was no room for a guy in her life.
     She didn’t care he was everything she hated a sexy jock her polar opposite.  Dylan found himself stealing looks into the stands.  After the day was over he found himself looking forward each day to seeing her.
     Otis wanted no part of Dylan and Lucy dating each other.  No way, no how.  See how and what goes on for these two.  Find out if this overly focused jock can find a happy medium for both baseball and Lucy.
