Summary from 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 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 Green moves to her school. Not only is he an amazing QB, but he’s also amazingly hot. And for the first time, Jordan’s feeling vulnerable. Can she keep her head in the game while her heart’s on the line?”




Wow, this book is really good! It’s real and unpredictable. I also find it unique for me, especially because it has a not-so-typical girl considered as one of the boys. But I’m not that fan of her, maybe because she’s seems to be lost sometimes, and confuse. I admit I’m not into sports, especially football, that’s why there are parts of the book that I’m not familiar with. I like the fact that it is unpredictable. Wait, I don’t know how to complete this review without spoiling some. Ummm.
Well, this is hard.. Haha!

Anyway, I like all the characters! They are all funny and cool! Jordan is extraordinary, like I said, she’s one unique girl. But she met Ty, a new guy in their school. And that changed everything. She has a best friend, a guy friend actually, Henry. He is her friend for like ten years, from what I remembered reading, haha. So yes, i didn’t expect that there’s a love triangle here. And that made the story very interesting. I couldn’t put it down because I wanted to know who she ended up with. Halfway through it, I already knew who I want for myself, I mean for her. LOL! I will not spoil the ending, I promise! I love all her friends, even though it was hard for me to remember all of them.

I love it! Especially because it includes all kinds of relationships, families, friends, and lovers. If you love sports and unique romance, you will enjoy this book! I highly recommend it to everyone! And I will definitely read the other books from the author. 😉

““I’ve left some clues for you. 
If you want them, turn the page. 
If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.” 

So begins the latest whirlwind romance from the New York Timesbestselling authors of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?”


CUTE. Do you think its appropriate? LOL! All I can I say is the whole book is cute, because of the cute story and cute characters. I like it, its funny, and at the same time very informative. I learned a lot from it such as different books and words. It is also unique, that it is hard to compare it to other young adult contemporary or chick-lit book. I enjoyed it so much that I will not write a constructive review about it. You must read it too so you can find out how wonderful it is. 😉
