Review: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

Catching Jordan was such a fun book! I'm not much of a football fan so I was a bit wary of reading a story that centered on football players in high school, but I can safely say I am a fan of Jordan and her friends after reading this. Jordan is a typical tomboy almost to the point of not being girly. She's focused on the sport and not much else, especially not boys until Ty comes along. I really liked her relationship with her best friend, a guy. They have amazing chemistry not just as best friends but for the potential for something else. A minor con for me was that there seemed to be a lot of sex in the story. Everyone seemed to be sleeping with everyone which I found not quite realistic. What was realistic was seeing Jordan struggle to deal with family, with relationships, with fitting in with the girls, and the pressure to get a scholarship to realize her dreams of playing football. Her life definitely isn't boring here. It's the first book in the Hundred Oaks series, which I believe can be read as a standalone.

ONE OF THE BOYS

What girl doesn't want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn't just surrounded by hot guys, though-she leads them as the captain and quarterback of her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys and that's just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university.

But everything she's ever worked for is threatened when Ty Green moves to her school. Not only is he an amazing QB, but he's also amazingly hot. And for the first time, Jordan's feeling vulnerable. Can she keep her head in the game while her heart's on the line?
