Title: Catching Jordan
Series: Hundred Oaks, #1
Author: Miranda Kenneally
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars


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?

"Love Hurts Worse Than Getting Slammed By A 250-pound Linebacker"-Jordan 
I believe this statement brings out the whole theme of the book in one sentence. Jordan is the quarterback of her high school football team, and SHE is a GIRL, which causes all kinds of problems because she's playing a "man's" sport and can get hurt. She also has wonderful relationships with her team mates. They all get a long with her very well and stand up for her, and respect. She is a really good team leader, and a very good football player. But to some colleges that doesn't seem to matter because she is a GIRL. Also Jordan starts to learn what it's like to have a real boyfriend, and to fall in love. I won't say much more about that because I don't want to ruin it. But I really enjoyed how Jordan basically has to learn to make her own choices about things, and go through living in a "man's world." I really enjoyed this book, defiantly a four out of five stars!
