Product Description

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...

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.

Each book in the Suttonville Sentinels series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swoon worthy 11 July 2017
By Danii - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Suttonville Sentinels is easily becoming one of my favourite series. I love sports romance, and I love the YA/teen genre. This series offers something different in the way of male lead characters. They may be athletes, but they aren't cocky jocks. They work hard to achieve their goals.

The Perfectly Imperfect Match is Dylan's story. We meet him in Swinging at Love, however, if you haven't read book 2 in the series you will still have the full enjoyment of this story. Dylan is a square. He keeps his head in the game and his eye on the plan. Some may say he's boring, but he is driven to achieving his goal. Baseball is his dream career, and he wants to give it his all. This means no distractions including girls.

Lucy is a free spirit. She's happy to colour outside the lines. She loves sewing, chickens, and living for the now. She is Dylan's complete opposite. From the second they meet they clash. They don't fit together like a jigsaw. They are perfectly imperfect so why can't they stay away from each other? This is a hot and fiery relationship with some mild sexual references.

This isn't a smooth sailing romance. Dylan can be a bonehead at times but he's a teen. All he has to do is work it out before he misses his chance with the girl of his dreams.

5 stars out of 5. I love Lucy's character, and she is strong enough to deal with the curveballs Dylan likes to throw. Another swoon-worthy teen read.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars 13 July 2017

I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads

5 Swoon-worthy Stars (okay, Highley, where are my unicorns? Just proving I read the note at the end. LOL)

Young Adult age-range: 12+. Kissing & adult language.

The Perfectly Imperfect Match is the 3rd installment of Suttonville Sentinels, and can easily be read as a standalone. While the hero and heroine from book 2 do make an appearance on the pages, their previous story doesn't make an impact on the current one. Although, I was happy to see them, reconnect with them.

If you're not reading this as a standalone, you no doubt will remember Dylan. Uptight. Obsessed with his future plans, to the point he isn't living in the now. He's hitched all of his dreams, hopes, and aspirations with singular focus, to the point it's unhealthy and could be a detriment should things not go according to plan.

Fate and destiny and things happen, just because you plan it or want it, doesn't make it so. This is a lesson Dylan needs to learn, and in a way that doesn't leave lasting damage.

Dylan's an amazing pitcher, but he's even better at teaching the next generation of ballplayers during summer camp, which leads us to Lucy...

Lucy is an interesting character. Free-spirit, chicken savior, and colorful rebel. She's the daughter of a serviceman who is deployed and a quilt shop owner. To help her family, Lucy stitches/embroiders various items to bring in side money and bring new clientele into the shop, all the while helping raise her nine-year-old brother.

Otis enrolls in summer camp- the budding pitcher is placed under the tutelage of Dylan, and that's how Dylan and Lucy meet.

Opposites attract.

Without giving a book report, the pair have some angsty bumps and bruises along the way. There's heat and intensity, bucket loads of chemistry. Dylan has a 'no girls' policy, and fears Lucy is throwing him off his game. Lucy is worried about Otis' relationship with his pitching coach, so she doesn't want to come between her baby brother and his idol.

The Perfectly Imperfect Match was a delightfully sweet read, full of crushing and budding love, and it put a smile on my face. Until the epilogue- boom- emotional extortion by the author. Mad props to Highley for making me cry (happy tears, of course)

Definitely recommend to lovers of the Young Adult genre, no matter if they are actual young adults or the young at heart. I look forward to more in this series and more by this author.

*I will say, from my own experience, grown men and boys alike do believe the 'no girls' nonsense. My grandfather, who was old enough to be my great-grandfather, was always bringing up failure in the baseball world due to his son getting a girlfriend- (I can't remember what team he played for) unable to be apart from her, he made her his wife and had children. Blaming my aunt, of course. Is it true? I have no idea- it was a generation or three before my time, but adult me knows the misogynistic blame-game is a great way to explain away what really happened. But boys and men do believe that nonsense, so I could relate to both Dylan and Lucy as I read the book. & it brought up the memory of my grandfather, enough so I could even hear his voice.

Swoon- still waiting on those unicorns.

Lucy is a free spirited girl who has always marched to her own beat but would do anything for her family. Dylan is a very strict, dedicated guy getting over his recent crush gone bad, not interested in dating for fear it would get in the way of his goals. When Dylan ends up being the summer baseball camp coach to Lucy's beloved little brother Otto, sparks fly between Lucy and Dylan, but are they sparks of lust or hatred? The two could not be more different from each other, yet there is a pull, and they both find themselves having a hard time staying away...are such opposites really a good choice for a relationship?

Yet again, Kendra hits it out of the park (ha, like what I did there??) with book 3 in the Suttonville Sentinels series. All the books are about different characters and their challenges in finding love, but the one common factor is that the guys in each book play baseball on the Suttonville Sentinels High School team. They can be read as independent stories no problem, but it has been the best for me reading them in order. Each book will have a reference to the previous book, which fills me with happiness because I love the tie ins. That being said, this was an incredibly engaging, fast read that I sped through in one day because I did not want to put it down.

The plot was fun, with a few twists and dilemmas thrown in, but for the most part this was a character driven story, which I feel works the best for a romance story- you care about the characters so therefore you care about their relationship. I was a little uncertain about Lucy at the beginning, with her hot temper and take what you want personality, but I really liked her. She was willing to take chances, stand up for what she wanted and felt was right, yet she refused to be a doormat to anyone which I think I appreciated the most (and where can I get a chocolate amaretto cupcake??). Dylan was a little harder to crack though with his stiff demeanor and awkward personality, the few moments where he relaxed I was waiting for the shoe to drop and him to go crazy without structure. I think they worked so well as a couple since they both understood hard work, had goals and were not demanding of the other. Without them even realizing it, they complemented the other with their strengths and weaknesses balancing and learning from the other what they need. Yin and Yang at it's finest.

The ending of this book was absolutely perfect. This book overall was so sweet, making me feel all warm and fuzzy in my heart, and I wish it was a physical book in my hands so I could hug it to me. Can I just say how much I loved that this was not an angsty teen problem book: no gossip, no ​misunderstandings, no love triangles, but instead it was more about self discovery and learning how to pick the important battles and be a well rounded person.

I would have loved to see or at least hear about Kyle and Faith, but it was nice to see how well Tristan and Alyssa are together and how they interact with Dylan. It is 100 confirmed that I will read any book in the Suttonville Sentinels series and now I need to find Kendra's other books because I absolutely love the people she creates and how she puts her stories together so full of heart.

I received this title in return for my honest review.
4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect YA for the summer! 11 July 2017
By Lenore L Kosinski - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4 stars -- I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.

Before I get into the meat, as an aside: Covers don't make or break a book for me, but can I just say that this cover is absolutely perfect for this book? I love it when a scene from the book is represented, it always makes me auto-smile and squeal when I get to it!!

Ahem. Anyways. I am falling in love with Ms. Highley. She writes just my kind of cute YA books. I've said it in previous reviews of the other books in this series, I'm NOT a baseball fan. But Ms. Highley makes me want to be a baseball fan (until I watch it on TV and remember that I don't have the attention span). And she did it again in this book. It's not that there's an overwhelming amount of baseball in the book, but it's prominent enough that it makes me feel like I understand the passion Dylan has. I actually prefer when my sports romance books ACTUALLY have some of the sport in it (and not just have it be a small aspect of the character).

Dylan was such an intriguing hero!! I can't help but wonder how he came to be so rigid and structured and goal-focused. But while sometimes a lack of "past incident explanation" can kill a book for me, the way it was done in this book I really felt like I could see how someone could just have that be an aspect of their personality. Like being shy, or extroverted, or a daydreamer...sometimes you're just born a certain way. And I kind of loved how he'd allowed this one aspect of his personality to take over his WHOLE LIFE, and that was the cause of his stress. It was so gratifying to see Lucy open him up, make him relax, show him there's more to life. I also loved the conflict with his parents. Again, Ms. Highley writes great families too -- not evil ones, or uninvolved, but ones that have their own set of problems even though you can feel the love. I loved how that all resolved too, how blinded Dylan had become in his focus.

And he was SO CUTE!! I love the heroes in these books. They have a healthy set of hormones, but none of them are dogs (though far from perfect either). They are all very 3 dimensional, and I love how shy and awkward Dylan could be in relationships! SWOON!! (a unicorn just got his wings!)

And I LOVED how different Lucy was from the other heroines in this series! She was kind of a rebel rouser, and just marched to the beat of her own drum, but with lots of confidence. I loved how seriously she followed her passion, and how some might see her as flighty, but if you paid attention she was really focused as well. She just knew better how to have some fun. And I loved her family dynamics as well, and how the pressures of stepping up and being responsible in her family were really wearing on her. Her relationship with both her Mom and her brother felt very real, full of love but also struggles. And I loved the military Dad aspect as well. How it didn't overtake the story, but was an underlying heartache.

And these two together were YA gold. So many tummy butterflies, they really had great chemistry. And I really could see how they sort of brought the best of each other.

So yeah, another YA success!! And a PERFECT read for the summer, I just got all those summertime vibes!!
