Review: Infraction by Rachel Van Dyken

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?

Review:  4.75 of 5 Stars
I never really thought I would enjoy a sports themed romance novel.  I don't really care about football at all, but I adore Rachel Van Dyken and I liked book one, Fraternize.  This review will contain spoilers to book one, so read the rest at your own risk.  I was ready to give Infraction a chance.  I wanted to see what happen to Miller and Kinsey since I like their characters in book one.  
Miller Quinton was introduced during Fraternize when he was part of a love triangle, vying for the affection and love for Emerson, his high school sweetheart.  He was the loser of that triangle and honestly, I was glad because I felt like Emerson and Grant were meant to be.  Miller is a great guy, but he was trying to force something in book one because he thought it was right, but life has a way of making sure you get what you really want.
Kinsey and Miller hooked up at the end of Fraternize, but let's be honest; no one wants Jax, her overprotective, perfect QB, brother to lose it so they don't date or even look at Kinsey.  But when Jax asks Miller to "fake date" his sister to protect her from an ex boyfriend, things are about to get interesting.  I absolutely love Kinsey and her spirit.  She is kind but fiery and I love what she brings to the story.  
I was not prepared for this book.  At all.  I loved it from page one and my love just kept growing.  I knew it would be a great story about Miller and Kinsey but I was unprepared for the story that unfolds with Jax and his personal life, as well as their relationship as siblings. There were times I laughed out loud while reading, and others where I was sobbing.  It was truly a fantastic read.  I highly recommend that everyone read this series!
