About the book:
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 now there's a new guy in town who threatens her starting position... suddenly she's hoping he'll see her as more than just a teammate.
I LOVED THIS STORY. Jordan is a strong and independent young woman. Who just happens to be the best football player in the state, and a girl. As a daughter to an NFL Quarterback it is not unlikely that her life would surrounded around Football, but readers will be encouraged by this young girls' drive to overcome in Man's World. I love the wholeness of Jordan and her Team; it is incredibe how they rely on one another so deeply. This team is so interwoven, and it appears that each character has his own role and place within the group. It is like they are her family, and the love and support that they give her is incredible. Although, I must note that I developed lingering questions about Henry long before they appeared in story. It was obvious that the emotions running between these characters were deeper and dedication on a whole different level. I must admit that when the development comes to light I was their biggest fan. It infuriated me to no end that they were being so dense and stubborn. To anyone else this couple was meant for one another, but to theirselves it was a mystery. Secondly, I was happy to see her Dad come around, and realize that his fears we only hendering his relationship with his daughter. The book came together perfectly at the end, but I was a little depressed that it ended so quickly after they had just started talking again. It didn't really give readers the conclusion that would have seal a Happily Ever After. Even not being a sports enthusiaist; this was a simple and exciting read. It was easy to find youself absorbed into this story, and experience this story as though you are Jordan. Being a sports novel many would expect the abundance of whitty humor. This is a favorite for The BookWhisperer!!
