Impressions

Catching Jordan delivered a compellingly intense story of self-discovery and growth with added drama, humor and a roller coaster romance.

Jordan Woods is the star quarterback and captain of her high school football team and just happens to be a girl. Everything is going good for her and her team as they gear up to impress scouts and land scholarships for college next year. But things get instantly complicated when Ty joins the team. It’s bad enough that he is an excellent quarterback, threatening Jordan’s spot on the team but she also falls for him, hard. So her heart is also on the line. All she has to do is stay focus and get control of her emotions. Easier said than done.

I was instantly intrigued by Jordan’s story from the start of the story and was lead on a wild ride that I didn’t want to get off. When I thought I knew what would happen next things changed course and kept me guessing.

The characters were diverse, well rounded and interesting. They each played a critical role within Jordan’s life and made the story more appealing. In reading Catching Jordan I gained a lot of insight on the game of football. With the inside look of the team and their games it enhanced the story and really brought me into their world.

The romance was as exciting as the plot. There was a nice balance between the romance and the action. Even though there was a love triangle it didn’t really bother me because it wasn’t your typical obvious love triangle. Though it started out as the typical insta-romance or should I say insta-attraction it did grow and mature, as did Jordan. I liked how the romance took on different levels within the story; it had its hot moments and at times was sweet.

Being such a diverse and interesting character, Jordan was easy to relate to. She had to deal with some heavy topics with her family as well as with herself and I enjoyed the journey she went through in tacking all the complications within her life and well as finding what she really wanted out of life and love.

Overall

Overall Catching Jordan was a great story that I couldn’t put down. The story as well as the characters captured me from the first page and didn’t let go. I look forward to more of Miranda Kennedy’s stories. My verdict? Readers should defiantly go out and pick up a copy of this story.
