The Perfectly Imperfect Match 
By: Kendra C. Highley
Release Date: July 10, 2017
Series: Suttonville Sentinels, #3

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 advocate, likes a little mayhem. So what if she gets lost taking her brother to baseball 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...

Swoon worthy and adorable, that’s how I can best describe this book. 

This is my second Suttonville Sentinels books, luckily they can all be read alone.  It was so very sweet to watch these two characters develop and grow with each other throughout the book.  We meet Lucy who is very out there and unique in her own right, she likes to sew which is not something common in young kids these days but it was great to watch and visualize.  We also dive into Dylan’s life and his dream for becoming the next hot baseball star.  These two are very determined people but in different ways.  Where one is very low key and leaned back the other is very strict and regime in the things that they do.  

It was fun to experience the full on attraction of this ying and yang couple.  Sure there were some hiccups in the road, but it’s how they overcame them that mattered.  I loved all the secondary characters like Tristen and Otis as well as Lucy’s mother.  I really felt for her and her family when they would talk about their father and how they wish he was home from the military but it’s hard sometimes. 

There were moments in this book where my heart would sink and soar and I would connect with the characters so much.  Life is hard sometimes.  Achieving your goals can be even harder, but it’s that determination and that strength that will always get you there, sometimes you just have to get sidetracked to get on the right path.

I thought this book was overall adorable and sweet.  Very realistic it wasn’t insta love but there was definitely an instant connection between these two characters.  I really believe that they needed each other in so many ways to show each other that there are other things out there sometimes it’s good to be free and sometimes it’s good to have order.  Very quick and easy fun read.  Loved the baseball facts throughout the book and the insight into previous characters as well.  

I received this book from NetGalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC, so that I may give my honest opinion and a review. Whether it is good or not please do not let it discourage you from purchasing/reading the book yourself and forming your own opinion. What might be good for me may not be good for you and vice versa. With that said, Happy Reading Everyone!!!
