Review ~ Fraternize (Players Game #1) by Rachel Van Dyken

Fraternize (Players Game, #1)
eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: September 12th 2017

Publisher: Skyscape

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.

My Opinion

It's always a good day when I get to start a Rachel Van Dyken book. Seriously, I don't need to read the blurbs anymore; I love her writing and she never fails to make me smile with her guys. Saying that, I did read the blurb for Fraternize and I was a little nervous about whether the love triangle would work for me or whether it would be cliched.

I really shouldn't have worried. I should know this author better by now, since she has yet to disappoint me.

Anyway, Fraternize was a comical read I sped through. It reminded me a bit of her book The Consequences of Loving Colton with more humour and great relationships between a cast of characters. I loved Grant--totally team Grant by the way. He made me chuckle from the first time I met him. He reminded me of an excitable puppy you just want to befriend. And the more I read about him the more I liked him.

I won't ruin the plot by delving into the relationship and what happens. You guys deserve to experience Em's relationships and the paths she takes with the guys on your own so you can make your own mind up about which team you're on. What I will say is the dynamic between the three kept me hooked. Rachel did a good job of avoiding too many cliches and creating relationships that I genuinely believed in and engaged me. I liked all of the characters and can't wait for more.

Overall, I loved this book.  Reading it in the sun was the perfect way to end the day. I also hope there's going to be another because I need that guy's story as soon as possible!
