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 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.

I had really enjoyed the other two books in this series, so I requested it without reading the synopsis. I was excited to see that it was Dylan's story.

First off, Lucy was a lot of fun. She's hard working and smart and so sassy. Her little brother Otis stole every scene he was in. Dylan is straight ...more

4 stars -- I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.

Dylan has one focus in life, and one focus only; baseball. Being the best player he can be and working up to the big leagues. There are sacrifices to be made, though; he has his strict routines and a strict no girls rule. He can't afford distractions. The problem, however, arrives in the form of Luc ...more

By Melissa (YA Book Shelf) July 16, 2017

Every time I read one of Kendra C. Highley's books, I inevitably say that she's done it again, and The Perfectly Imperfect Match is no exception. This story was all kinds of swoony, and to be honest, the epilogue brought a few tears to my eyes. Beyond the romance between Dylan and Lucy, I loved the ...more

By Char (1RadReader59) August 23, 2017

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 flair on it. She will blaze her way into your world and mak ...more

By Sophie January 12, 2020

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the author via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.

I've been blitzing through this series again when I realised I hadn't finished the last book, and I've rediscovered my love of contemporary, especially the ones that Entangled publish.

This time around ...more

By Deniz July 17, 2017

So honestly, I've been thinking what I should write in this review for days and days.
Because frankly my response to the book, is a big sigh. A good one mind you, the kind of sigh that is full of contentment and swoony cute & fluffy feels.
Yeah, so basically Highley killed any logical response I ...more

If you want an opposites attract, The Perfectly Imperfect Match is just for you.

I had such a good time reading this book seriously. It's so fun and light and a perfect read for summer! It actually develops in the summer, more specific, in baseball summer camp, because Lucy's little brother is going ...more

By Danielle's July 09, 2017

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 (Suttonville Sentinels #3) by Kendra C. Highley is book three in her series about some of the Suttonville high-school baseball players finding their match.

Three and a half stars.

Dylan Dennings has a plan. He's a high school pitcher and he aims to go to the minors and get called up to the majors by the time he’s twenty-three. He is 100% focused on that plan. He practices religiously, eats clean, gets the right amount of sleep. Oh and he's avoiding girl ...more

The Perfectly Imperfect Match by Kendra C. Highley was provided to me by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

By books are love July 15, 2017

Received in exchange of a honest review.

So I like that Dylan and Lucy both have a journey and both see the other wrongly at first. I like how Lucy is out to help Dylan lighten up while Lucy is learning to be a little more serious but not serious ie she has a lot on her plate but doesn’t always balan ...more

By Bette July 02, 2017

This is a wonderful wholesome YA read. It's a light, fun read with very little angst and some really great characters.

Dylan Dennings, who had his heart crushed in a prior book, has a plan for the future. Rule 1 - no girls. Rule 2 - work hard at baseball and get his career kick started. No college p ...more

**I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads**

The Perfectly Imperfect Match is book #3 in Kendra C. Highley's Suttonville Sentinels series and just as addictive as her second, Swinging at Love. You can easily read these as a standalone, but Swinging at Love, book #2, is ...more

By Lynn October 16, 2017

Rounding up to 4 stars. This is the third book in the series. The characters in this were not quite as organic or easy to get at the start of the book but it picked up traction as the book went on. It was still a cute, sweet, escapist YA but probably had a bumpier start than the first two for me. Th ...more

By Jackie May 23, 2018

I'm so excited that netgalley and Entangled Teen gave me the opportunity to read this book! While I haven't read the other two books before this, I didn't feel like I was lost when it came to Dylan's past along with two of the other characters. I do definitely need to get my hands on the two previou ...more

By Shannon July 10, 2017

Another cute addition to the Suttonville Sentinels series. Lucy and Dylan are two soon-to-be high school seniors who couldn't be more different if they tried, at least on the surface. Lucy's a free spirit. She doesn't mind a little trouble, and while she does have a plan in mind for her future and i ...more

This was a cute read with a swoon worthy romance.
I loved Lucy's character. She was responsible and hardworking but a little crazy and a whole lot of fun, all mixed into one fun package.

A fun romance, and a perf ...more
