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?

I'm always down for a good swoon-worthy read. When Rachel Van Dyken's Fraternize was first introduced to me by Ambur of Thomas Allen & Son, I was sold! I dove into that book instantly and fell head-over-heels in love with the sexiness and raw emotion behind that title. Now with Infraction, the second installment in Rachel Van Dyken's Players Game series, I was eager to finally follow the tale of Miller and Kinsey.

Although I absolutely adored Grant and Emerson in Fraternize and thought no one could possibly trump the unbelievable sweetness of the duo, I have to say Miller and Kinsey certainly came out on top. I had originally fallen for Miller in Fraternize and adored his caring and protective persona, and although it didn't quite shine through in Fraternize as I had hoped, it definitely did in Infraction when it came to Kinsey. He and Kinsey truly worked together in a way I hadn't expected, and I thoroughly enjoyed their dialogue and story from beginning to end. Overall, I enjoyed their connection with one another far more than I did Emerson and Grant's. There was a better sense of realism when it came to their relationship, and through the worst of it, Miller and Kinsey's connection with one another was truly a inspiring and moving journey to witness.

Infraction by Rachel Van Dyken, the second installment in the sweet and seductive Players Game series, was a smashing hit for yours truly! I adored Infraction from beginning to end and see myself re-reading it once more in the near future. As far as swoon-worthy romances go, The Players Game has been an absolute hit and I can't wait to read more.
