Infraction by Rachel Van Dyken Review

4 Smooches


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 is the second book in the Player’s Game. Two of my favorite tropes in romance novels are football books and brother’s best friend books. This story hit both those marks and did it so well. Infraction had all the secret love I yearn for along with a heartwarming story of how to grieve and love after and during a loss. While dealing with a heavy topic the book never got overly dramatic or angst, instead it delivered a  fun story with a good dose of heart in the back story.

Infraction was a fun read that reminded me how much I love football books. Rachel Van Dyken did an excellent job of capturing the excitement of the game while developing a unique story. Another great installment into a series I am quickly getting hooked on.
