BOOK REVIEW- Fraternize (Players game#1) By Rachel Van Dyken

BOOK REVIEW- Fraternize (Players game#1) By Rachel Van Dyken


Emerson just made her dream come true as a professional cheerleader for her favorite pro football team. But even though the plus-size athlete is breaking down boundaries, she still has to contend with the massive rulebook. Carbs? Nope. Chocolate? Definitely not. Still, Emerson loves her curves, and she’ll rock the hell out of this job even if it kills her. Except for one mandate that is easier read than done…

No fraternizing with the players.

Problem one is Miller Quinton: Emerson’s first love, first sex, and the guy who still ignites her daydreams and R-rated fantasies. Thrown back together, Miller and Emerson feel the undeniable pull of passion again, even if the conflict that tore them apart seems insurmountable. Then there’s way-too-sexy Grant Sanchez. He has a serious reputation with the ladies, and when it comes to winning someone he wants, he doesn’t let anyone stand in his way.

Now Emerson is breaking every rule in the manual. But what she doesn’t know is that she’s part of a wicked little game—one that could steal both her dream and her heart.


Emerson Rodner had finally landed her dream job as the newest member of the cheer squad for NFL team Bellevue Bucks. It has always been her dream to cheer for the Bucks while her childhood sweetheart and BFF Miller Quinton played on the field. But that dream was broken six years earlier when Miller had to move to the other side of the country, a move that left them both brokenhearted and resentful towards each other for many years to come. Now Miller is back to play for the Bucks and where he also ends up fighting in a love triangle with fellow team mate Grant Sanchez for Emerson’s love. A few chapters into this book I didn’t think I was going to like it book as its not my usual type of story as it appeared that Emerson was leading both men on and playing games with their hearts, but the more I read the more I realized that it was much deeper than that, it was about two people learning to forgive and move on. I loved the characters, loved the hot sex and loved the story line. This turned into a diamond in the rough for me and a very deep, emotional read.

I was drunk-dialing my ex the night I met him.

Six-three, sexy as sin and so incredibly rude I could smack the asshole smirk right off his face. Long story short, we got off to a bad start. But when the tabloids interpret our sparring as Drew Maddox “groveling” with a “mystery brunette,” his agent presents us both a proposal:

Shacking up as a couple this summer.

It’s an alleged “win-win.” I need to prove to my ex that I’m fine. Drew needs to prove to his team that he’s stable. Thanks to his on-field brawling and never-ending lady drama, Drew Maddox has suddenly found himself on the trade block – which means he needs a fast, easy way to show the team that he’s settled down.

Hence this fiance thing.

Our fights are real, our kisses are fake, and thanks to the nonstop heat between us, I’m starting to mix up all my signs. But whether it’s real or fake, there’s one thing I do know:

I’m already addicted.
