Add to Goodreads:

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken kicks off a brand-new series in which romance is a game and love is a touchdown.

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.

AHH!!! What can I say about Fraternize, other than the fact that I fell head over heels in love with it!!

Rachel Van Dyken is a master with words. Every single one of her novels is written beautifully, with such precision and care to every little detail. This novel is no different. I felt as though Dyken was crafting a masterpiece, interwoven together with a string of poetic phrases.

As to the characters, Emerson and Miller are two characters who will instantly steal your heart. They have a dynamic about them, that is so captivating. They not only have the physical relationship about them, but also a lot of heart and passion, that ultimately makes them so compatible.

I cannot say enough great things about this novel! I highly urge everyone to go and pick it up for themselves today.

5/5 Stars!

Exclusive Excerpt!!!

Present Day

Sleep didn’t come.
But the memories did.
So while most girls were probably well rested and ready to make the squad, I was stuck with the Ghost of Christmas past. I checked my reflection in the rearview mirror of my crappy car and willed away the dark circles under my eyes.
I had to make the squad.
I had to.
It was my last shot. Professional cheerleaders didn’t get paid much of anything, and with as much time as I spent trying to become one, I was at a crossroads. I just didn’t want to give up, I couldn’t. My mom had been a professional cheerleader before she died, and I still had her picture under my pillow, the edges torn, the colors faded. Growing up without her had been painful. Not because I remembered much about her, I was too young when she was taken from us. No, it had been hard because my dad hadn’t quite got why I was bullied. To him I was perfect. He never saw the flaws everyone else seemed to, and when I grew boobs and hips, and all the other lovely things that girls get when they grow up—he handed me a picture of my mom and said, “You look just like her, and she was perfect.” It kept me going.
Until Miller.
I slammed the steering wheel with my palm until my hand went numb. Why? Why did it always have to come back to Miller?
One more.
That’s what I told myself.
One more memory surfaced.
And this time, as I pulled out of the apartment complex, I let it.
Because as much as it hurt to admit it, I’d rather have him in my thoughts where he was safe from hurting me, than lose him forever.

End of Excerpt…want to find out what memory Emerson thinks back on?
