Catching Jordan

Hey there people's, hope everyone is having a good holiday! I guess my plan to get in 3 reviews in 3 days didn't exactly work, but I promise I'll have a review in soon after this, and it's on a totally amazing book, too! Well anyways, I read Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally and it was super good!
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 on 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 starring position on the team... and has her suddenly wishing to be seen as more than just a teammate.
Wow that was a short summary, but it pretty much sums up the book. Catching Jordan was a really awesome book. It was so touching and funny and the romance was super cute. Even though it sounds like this book really has no plot or would be really boring, but it really wasn't! I was basically hooked from the first page of the book and couldn't set it down. Jordan was a very cool character to read about, I mean, how many other books are you gonna read about that had a girl quarterback as the main character? Jordan and the other characters in this book were very fun to read about and it was a fresh new setting for a book that I really enjoyed. It was really cool to read about all of Jordan's guy friends and get to go behind the scenes in a football game. Ty, the guy mentioned in the summary of this book, certainly seemed like a cool guy and I loved reading about him, even though at times I wanted to slap him in the face, (I won't tell you why though, you'll have to read the book yourself!) The other character I enjoyed reading about was Jordan's best friend Henry, who I thought was very caring and funny and overall an awesome guy. 
Just in case you guys didn't get much out of the summary of this book, (off of goodreads) I'm going to elaborate more. Basically Ty shows up and threatens to steal Jordan's place as quarterback, and what makes it even worse is that Jordan doesn't want love to affect her football playing, especially when she's waiting for an acceptance into Alabama and the Alabama coaches are coming to their game. Some other things happen later on in the book too but I won't mention what they are, let's just say Jordan has some big decisions to make. 
Some other things I liked about this book was how funny and lovable the characters were, and Jordan was pretty awesome at times. She was never afraid to show people that a girl can play football. Overall, this book was an awesome, fun, quirky, funny, book. Sorry if this review was all over the place, I definitely loved this book! 
4.5 Stars!
