Catching Jordan
By Miranda Kenneally
Published December 1st 2011 by Sourcebooks Fire



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 quarter back (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?
Catching Jordan 

I had been avidly begging my mom to drive me to the local library to pick up this book. I had been waiting for what seemed like forever -at least it was in my mind. I was not disappointed one slightest bit. I adore this book and would read it a million times over and over again if I owned it! 

For Jordan, it was the almost perfect life for her. She had the coolest friends (especially Sam) and fits perfectly into the team. I love how this is the place where she belongs. Her brother is a college football player, and her father is a famous one. Her brother loves that she does football, her dad hates it. 
 ~Spoiler Alert~
One of my favorite scenes in this book is when Ty Green first comes to look at her football team. Yes, HER football team. Shes the QB. When Ty comes she feels threatened because it looked like her would taker her hard earned spot on the team, but when her coach sends her to drill, she makes a mistake. She NEVER makes a mistake.  Oh, I forgot to mention, its also kind of love at first sight for her with Ty. Of course Ty doesn't know shes a girl. After all she is a girl on a guys football team. Football is also kinda of a 'guy' sport. So, anyway, coach calls her over to make sure shes okay or whatever, she takes her helmet off. That's when Ty sees her, I mean really, really sees her. Its like the whole BOOM & firework set off or whatever. Anywhooo, sparks fly. He ends up being her boyfriend. But he's kind of jealous, insanely protective and reminds her of her father. Now, let me tell you, it is just wrong when a boyfriend reminds you of your dad. Its just-no. 

So it turns that Sam (I love him by the way) has had a crush on her forever. Yah, I know, sigh worthy. 
But when she thinks shes falling for Sam more than Ty, Sam rejects her. And..and..and... that's all I'm gonna tell yah! (evil smile, evil laugh)

So I suggest you get this book immediately!!! 
Oh, and here's what I think of her choice in guys: Ty's a jerk, I LOVE Sam!!!

Stealing Parker
This is the sorta kinda second book to Catching Jordan. Why is it kinda sorta? The main characters are not the same but they might appear in the novel. If you want to look into buying the book click here

Summary for Stealing Parker
 Parker Shelton pretty much has the perfect life. She’s on her way to becoming valedictorian at Hundred Oaks High, she’s made the all-star softball team, and she has plenty of friends. Then her mother’s scandal rocks their small town and suddenly no one will talk to her.

Now Parker wants a new life.

So she quits softball. Drops twenty pounds. And she figures why kiss one guy when she can kiss three? Or four. Why limit herself to high school boys when the majorly cute new baseball coach seems especially flirty?

But how far is too far before she loses herself completely?

Here is one more book by the author of Catching Jordan & Stealing Parker. Also a sorta sequal and not yet published.
