As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university. Jordan Woods is the captain and Quarterback of the high-school team. Jordan commands the respect and friendship of the players, but Jordan has a lot to live up to.
This is all because Jordan is a girl. Problems arise though when a new kid arrives, Ty, who is a star Quarterback, and stirs up feelings and a crush in Jordan. But what will best friend Henry have to say whose been there for Jordan all ways, and is now acting strange with Jordan?
Catching Jordan was such a great way to end the year of What I loved so much — apart from the heroine — is that this YA book felt the most natural in terms of teenage behaviour and their maturity. It felt so natural that not once did I roll my eyes at any over dramatic teenager angst. Jordan I loved. She was blunt, she was forthright and she knew what she wanted and she went for it.
She never gave up on her dream to play football, and I do love it when YA books feature stories that are not just all about the boy, but show how eager and how hard kids will work for their future. It deals with a variety of things, and it all flowed really well without being too busy.
There is a love triangle in the book, and those who know me, know that I usually run screaming for the hills when I see one. When Ty arrives, Jordan is immediately flustered around him which is a first for her. Her group of friends are all males, and she has a great relationship with them — especially her best friend Sam Henry. Jordan is not what I would call a tomboy. And then I though, oh gosh, is Henry in for a chance here?
And it was so refreshing to have a YA that deals with sex in a natural way. And he was. Ty was wet behind the ears and quite controlling for someone his age. Henry was a darling though. He was her best friend and he supported and loved her for who she was, and their friendship was so strong. When they had their sleepovers and they would snuggle, it was so cute. In a way, I understood where Donovan was coming from in not wanting his daughter to play football.
So whilst I can understand her dad not wanting her to be football player where the level goes up a notch, how he ignored her and her talent was a crappy thing to do.
I was happy with how their relationship was resolved, and in fact I was pretty happy with how all the plots were tied up together. All in all, I was so happy I found this book by total accident. It was a fun read with characters that I feel are very memorable.
I give Chasing Jordan an A. One thing that Lou loves most is her HEA in romances. You will most likely see her reading for those happy endings in her favorite genres, such as Contemporary Romance, NA, and Fantasy. Your email address will not be published.

Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally - review
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally is a light-hearted romance novel. Jordan is the captain and quarterback of her school's football team. All the guys on her team respect her and are good friends with her. Jordan's life long goal is to get a football scholarship to the University of Alabama — the best football college in the country. Her scholarship is threatened when hot quarterback Ty Green moves to her school. Jordan doesn't want to fall for him because it means he has a chance of taking her position and her scholarship away from her. Jordan also has to deal with an unsupportive father, unrequited love, the pressure of not messing up the state championship like she did last year, and a few sexist people in her life.
Remember Me. 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 Greeen moves to her school.
