Book Review #313 - Catching Jordan (Hundred Oaks #1) by Miranda Kenneally

Catching Jordan (Hundred Oaks, #1)

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?
My Rating: 4/5
Even though this is the first book in this series, I have read and reviewed the sequel Stealing Parker.
The only aspect of this book I didn't like as much as Stealing Parker was the sport. My knowledge of American Football comes solely from video games my brother forced me to play as a kid so that could be the reason.
Jordan was a better protagonist than Parker and being a tomboy myself, I connected strongly with her.
I really liked Jordan's family and how supportive they were, even though the dad's reaction was pretty predictable.

  1. I thought Jordan was a better protag as well-just more fully formed.
