Waiting on Wednesday

hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

This book hasn't been on my radar for long, apart from the very awesome Madeleine recommending it to me (she pushed me to read The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, which I'm totally loving so far) and it's also about sports! It reminds me of the Dairy Queen series a teensy bit (only the football + rivalry bit! and DQ is a fab series too) so yeah...

Catching Jordan
by Miranda Kenneally

Summary (goodreads):

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.

Catching Jordan is released December 1, 2011 from Sourcebooks Fire.
