(The Perfect Game by J. Sterling)
Hey ladies! (and gents?) I’m Amber from grownupfangirl.com and I’m here to introduce you to Jack F’n Carter from ‘The Perfect Game’ Series by J. Sterling. I really love Jack, and he makes me want my own baseball player… I think he’ll make you want one too!
Do you like hot boys? What about… hot boys with a large….baseball bat?
Baseball boys with a large…. Smile?
Well, look no further. Jack Carter is here to make you drool.
We actually refer to him as “Jack F’n Carter” because honestly, he’s just that good. He deserves that “F’n” in his name.
I’ll be honest here. A lot of these guys (okay. All of these guys in this tourney) are completely swoon worthy. They all make my knees a little weak. But there’s just something special about Jack Carter. Maybe it’s the way that he’s honestly a total screw up in a totally normal way. It’s easy to relate to him because he’s very human. He makes some of the dumbest mistakes, says some of the stupidest things, but then when you think you’ve completely given up on him, he learns from his mistakes and makes you want to keep watching him grow… to grow WITH him.
His story isn’t out of this world. He’s a college baseball player with an attitude… that makes you wanna call him every name in the book, and then let him make up for it. He’s all jokes and smiles and laughs, until he steps on the field. Then he’s all business, and he’s amazing. Do we all date hot college baseball players who end up drafted in the majors? No, we don’t. But it’s very possible, and that makes Jack even more lovable.
If you’ve ever wanted to date a baseball player, or get in the head of one for a while (or...in his bed) then Jack is your key, and honestly? Being in his head is quite hilarious.
Q: Hey Jack! I know you’re super slammed being amzing so we appreciate you stopping by. My first question is: Are you worried about all of these other guys you have to go up against in order to win?
Jack: worried? Nah. I'm friends with most these guys, so all I can say is that you ladies have amazing taste
Q: If you had it to do all over again, would you of have ever left Cassie to go play ball?
Jack: You mean, when I first got drafted out of college?
Q: Yeah. The first time. Would you have still left to go play?
Jack: Uh, *hesitates* I'm just thinking about how to word this without sounding like a total dick. *shrugs* Yes, I would have still left. There are other things I wish I would have done differently after signing my contract, but leaving to play professional baseball was something I'd strived for since I was a little kid. Am I making sense? Basically, I would have left. I would have left and it all would have been fine if I didn't screw it all up.
Q: What makes you unique?
Jack: I'll do whatever it takes to win back the girl. Whatever. it. takes. And when she starts to not trust me, I'll prove it. I don't let the things I want in life get away from me.
Q. What are your 3 greatest strengths?
Jack: My attitude, this body *runs hands down the length of his ripped shoulders and abs*, and playing ball.
Q. What are your 3 greatest weaknesses?
Jack: Kitten, baseballs that hit me at really high rates of speed, and my dick when it's drunk
Q. What would your ideal day be like?
Jack: My ideal day would literally be being surrounded by my family and the people we love and trust, (maybe watching a baseball game, or playing), eating good food (most likely Gran's homemade cooking), drinking lots of beer, swimming in the pool, doing dirty things later in the hot tub (not all of us together pervs just me and kitten), and hanging out.
Q: What advice would you give your kids about chasing their dreams??
Jack: I'd tell them to always follow their hearts and to never listen to those people who tell them they can't do it- because trust me, there will be enough of those people around all their lives. Only you can know what pulls you, what calls to you, what drives you. So go do it. Do it until they won't let you anymore. But don't ever stop trying.
Q. What do you find really grates on your nerves?
Q: what were you doing when you found out you'd been nominated?
Jack: I was just watching SportsCenter highlights in bed when Cass came barreling in saying she had the hottest boy toy on the planet. I had no fucking idea what she was talking about, but then she explained it. I'm honored to be in this competition (and tired of always losing these damn things), but I think it's cool. And Kitten thinks it's super hot, which means I get lucky later. So thanks ladies.
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? Haha! I think you’ll see that Jack is quite the character, so if you know him, and you love him: Vote For Him.
If you don’t know him, and you’d like to know him: Please get to know him. He really likes it, I promise.
We’d love to go crazy all tourney long with his baseball butt driving us nuts the whole time!
Vote Jack Carter. You know you wanna.

(Rule by Jay Crownover)
Hello everyone! My name is Christina Marie of LuLo Fangirl and I am here to advocate for my favorite bad boy and Marked Man, Rule Archer. Rule is definitely one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends and I am here to help you see why you want to come over to the Marked side…
This is the guy your parents warned you about, but you always dreamed of. Rule Archer is the bad boy we all want…
Rule is not the pretty boy next door that you take home to your parents and if you are looking for that, you have picked the wrong guy. Rule is definitely a unique guy. He’s not your typical book boyfriend. What makes Rule wonderful and desired by every woman he comes across is that he looks all bad ass on the outside but his inside is full of beautiful things. He is” a straight forward, extremely loyal, fights for what he wants and loves, and does not care what people think of him” kind of guy. He is moody and arrogant and so stubborn that it is ridiculous. But that’s what we love about him.
Rule is so busy protecting his heart and everyone around him (which includes a bunch of rowdy, tattooed hotties with hearts of gold) that it creates brooding moodiness and lots of anguish until he realizes that Shaw, the girl that’s always been there, is his heart.
Rule is tattooed to the hilt and pierced in all the right places, if you know what I mean *wink, wink*. He has beautiful icy blue eyes that can melt the coldest of hearts. And with always changing hair and the sexy confidence, he is sure to make your head turn.
“I think it’s genetically impossible not to be kind of in love with him at first sight, when you come equipped with a vagina. It’s just something about all the angst, moody swagger he has, that makes you want to cuddle up with him and make him feel better.”
Rule takes beauty to a whole new level. He is so beautiful to the eyes that all the expressions on his skin only add to his beautifulness. He marked skin tells a whole other story that lets you into the beautiful soul of Rule Archer.
We all want beautiful men but RULE is so much more than a pretty face. Rule makes life exciting and when you are loved by him, there is no doubt in your heart that you belong to him and he belongs to you. He loves with a fiery passion. Rule sees no other one than the love of his life in Shaw. She came into his world and changed his black and white world to a rainbow of color.
“Here’s my heart, Shaw. You have it in your hands and I promise you’re the first and last person to ever touch it. You need to be careful with it because it’s more fragile than ever thought and if you try and give it back I’m not taking it. I don’t know enough about love to know for sure that’s what this between us is, but I know that for me it’s you and only you from here on out and I can only promise to be careful and not push you away again. Life without you in it is doable, but if I have a choice I want to do it with you by my side and I’m telling you I’m not running away from the work it takes to make that happen. Shaw, I’m not scared of us anymore.”
“You have to promise not to bail on me when I get lost, Shaw. You have to promise to just wait it out until I can find my way back. I need to know you’re at the end of the tunnel when everything goes black.”
Rule Archer is simply a sexy, attractive, and absolutely fabulous Marked Man and the ULTIMATE book boyfriend in my opinion. I hope you enjoy him as much as I do. If so, PLEASE VOTE RULE ARCHER! #TeamRule for the WIN!
I guarantee you, you’ll never be the same once you’ve been touched by Rule. Welcome to the Marked side… enjoy your stay.
