Summary (Goodreads):

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 now there's a new guy in town who threatens her starting position... suddenly she's hoping he'll see her as more than just a teammate.


My Thoughts:

I'm not a sporty type of person. In fact, I don't like sports or do any. I know what is football, but doesn't know the game/rules. But even if, I enjoyed and loved reading Catching Jordan.

Jordan Woods--the female protagonist--was like, one of the coolest characters I read (contemporary). She's the captain and the quarterback of their football team. She never had a boyfriend even though she's surrounded by a bunch of guys in her team and she never cares what she looked in front of them--or any other men. Until there's Ty. Ty's so hot that Jordan, the best quarterback, began to *unconsciously drop her jaw. She then started to think of ways on how to get noticed and wear fitted tee (for her, fitted tee is dressing up).

Eventually, Jordan and Ty started dating. It was fun for Jordan and new, but there's something missing. It's like, she's still looking for that someone.

(I don't want to spill some more beans, but it's hard to tell what I really liked about this if I'm not gonna include it. So.. let me continue.)

Usually, I wouldn't like books like this--the turn of events--but in Catching Jordan, I loved every word of it. Ty is really great but there's some attitude he got. Sam Henry or Henry, meanwhile, was the best friend. The cool best friend Jordan got. He didn't got my attention right away because all I thought was that he's only the 'best friend of the protagonist'. But I started to notice and like him on times that he's being a cool and at the same time, great friend to Jordan, he's also funny like, when they were going to sleep on opposite direction and he would shove his foot on Jordan's face. Funny and sweet. He's so sweet that made me develop my suspicion..

Anyway, I love this book! So fun to read, with swoon-worthy scenes. It made me fall in love and smile, and even after reading this, it makes me smile whenever I remember this book. I would definitely read more books from Miranda Kenneally!
