Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken proves that everyone scores to win. But off the field, a fumble can change the entire game.

Pro footballer Miller Quinton would do anything for his best friend and teammate—including “fake dating” his friend’s sister. What no one knows is that seven months ago in Vegas, Miller and Kinsey did a whole lot more than just kiss. Miller knows that this cheerleader is off-limits to him and any guy on the team. Still, he can’t stop himself.

Kinsey’s whole world is on the verge of crumbling. Her dad has cancer. Her overprotective brother is falling apart. Dating Miller may be a fake-out, but he’s the one guy who can make her forget about everything—including all the reasons she stayed away from football players. With each heated moment, Miller feels more like a safe place…even though he’s not safe at all.

Now temptation is testing every rule in the game of love. But how long can they go on playing when winning is a harder goal than either of them imagined?


Infraction was so good! I wasn’t sure it would be because I didn’t enjoy the first book in the series, Fraternize, but I was pleased to fall in love with it.

In Infraction, Miller and Kinsey are both shocked when her older brother and Miller’s teammate Jax force them to be in a fake relationship. Jax doesn’t know about their previous hookup, and if he did, Miller would be dead. Jax trusts Miller to keep his hands to himself, but that’s easier said than done. There’s still chemistry between Miller and Kinsey that can’t be denied.

This book was written from three points of view: Miller, Kinsey, and Jax’s. I loved this dynamic. It gave insight into Miller and Kinsey’s relationship, but also both of their relationships with Jax. The only thing that would have made it even better would have been if Harley’s point of view would have been included.

I also really liked Miller and Kinsey’s relationship. There were so many great ah-ha moments. They learned more from each other than I expected. I loved what brought them even closer together. Infraction was such a special relationship story.

Overall, Infraction was a great sports romance. I found it to be a stronger book than the first one in the series. I liked it so much more.

  1. It’s awesome that you were able to really enjoy this book despite not really enjoying the first book in the series that much! When I don’t enjoy the first book in a series I never move on to the second, but maybe I should start! Great review!

    • Yeah, the first was a love triangle with the guy from this one. I felt he should have been chosen in the last book, but now I’m glad he wasn’t! The only reason I read this one was the first chapter was included in the first book. It got me!
