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?

A Review of INFRACTION by Rachel Van Dyken
“Because life isn’t full of people who are willing to save you—sometimes, all you have is you.”
It came as no surprise that I would devour this book. I loved Fraternize, but can easily say that Infraction stole my heart and had me championing on all the characters to find their happiness by letting go and giving in to their hearts. In fact, I even shed a bit of a tear–something Rachel knows I rarely do. And, in the spirit of honestly, I may have cursed her out a bit, but then quickly shared my love and devotion for her writing.
Willing to take on tough life subjects, Rachel Van Dyken offers a glimpse into the pain that is caused by loss. She shares how sometimes the personal hardships we face prepare us to be better equipped to help those who come into our lives. Or, sometimes they help us face the past and learn how to heal on our own or with other. However, finding ways to let go of the past in order to embrace what the present and future have to hold is a difficult task and often results in a journey.
“…it’s okay to need to rely on someone else when you feel like you’re about to break—that’s life.”
Infraction is a carefully crafted and amazing piece of work that shows just such a journey, all while capturing Rachel Van Dyken’s signature RomCom elements mixed with the passionate and poignant life messages she so easily infuses that inspire and encourage readers. Through Quinton Miller’s relationship with Kinsey and Jax’s realization that he cannot control everything in life, Infraction gives readers two romances that show just how strong and resilient the heart can be. The players still embrace the snark and sarcasm we have come to love as readers— they still banter and push one another, but they love fiercely and share their hardships, fears, and undeterred friendship that allows them to learn to let go, trust, and find the ability to love.
“The heart is strong. The heart can convince the body of anything. It can convince your mind of anything. Your heart allows you to be whatever you want to be, you just have to trust it.”
Brilliantly written, the chemistry between Kinsey and Miller will have readers laughing, crying, and cheering for their HEA. And Harley and Jax will leave you asking for more—as their relationship has so much left to share.

“I didn’t say I wanted a one-night stand.”
“Wow, changing your spots?”
I gripped her hand; she tried to jerk it away. “What if I want two? Maybe three? What if I want four?”
“Then I’d say you’re greedy.”
“When it comes to you?” I growled, pulling her to her feet. “Yes.”
Everyone was dancing around us but it felt like we were alone. Jax had since walked to the other side of the room. I backed Kinsey up against one of the walls, a potted plant guarded us, but not by much.
“I’ll just keep asking.”
“I’m not ready to move back in with my brother,” she huffed. “And if we complicate things, and it goes bad, which it will, what happens then?”
“So take a risk.”
“You’re asking me to trust you?”
“No.” I shook my head bitterly. “In every area of your life, your safety, your happiness, your health—you can trust me. Just don’t give me your heart, not when I’m not even sure I still have mine.”
She snorted. “So it’s going to be about just sex.”
“Distraction from your dad, distraction from Jax, let’s call it a mutual distraction between really good friends . . . the best of friends.” I kissed her temple then snaked my hand around her rib cage, lightly tickling her skin with my fingers as I raised her shirt, my knuckles grazing her belly button as I went higher and higher until I cupped her breast. She sucked in a breath, and I moved my hand back down her stomach until I came into contact with the front of her jeans.
“What are you doing?” she hissed.
“Nothing,” I whispered against her ear, kissing the hollow of her neck while my hand cupped her and then lifted her hips onto my leg, bracing it against the wall. I moved just enough for her to buck against my leg, and press her hands on my chest. “Nothing at all. You get to decide what happens.”
She huffed out a curse and pressed down on my leg again. “You’re a very bad friend.”
“I’m the best damn friend in this room.” I kept peppering light kisses against her mouth. “Come on, Waffle, time for the syrup.”
“Bad.” She rode me slow, she rode my leg hard, I imagined pulsing inside her, the walls of her body squeezing me into a slow painful death. “This is . . . so inappropriate.”
“You drive a man to want a hell of a lot of inappropriate, Kins. You’ve been driving me fucking crazy for two weeks. And since it’s all about your terms, I’m giving you the keys—you know you like to drive—so give yourself a ride, sweetheart . . . take it.”
I gripped her hips and guided her just enough so she could get a rhythm, then slowly scooted us into the shadow behind the plant and the chair to my right. We were hidden, but not enough that we couldn’t get caught.
“I need . . .” She let out a little moan and punched me in the chest, and then gave her head a shake and started mauling me with her mouth.
I grabbed her hips, slamming her tight little body against mine, and she climbed all over me, her body meeting my thrusts like we were two horny teenagers skipping class.
It felt so good, I was seconds away from getting her naked against the wall. She slowed her movements, arching against my leg, then pressed her palm to my dick; the touch set me off so hard that I drew blood against my bottom lip.
