Fraternize by Rachel Van Dyken Release Date: September 12th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.

FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
Fraternize really wasn’t I was expecting. But I mean that in a good way. Miller and Emerson have had a history. One that spans most of their life. But after a falling out (both of them at fault in my opinion) but they don’t see each other for years. But as fate would have it, it would not be the end of them! Now I thought this was going to be the normal the one that got away. They squabble, jump in bed, get married and have like 2.5 children. But Van Dyken does a little twist. Which I really don’t want to give away, so I’m not going to. I really enjoyed this and loved the direction that Van Dyken went with it. Though I did love the idea and the direction. I didn’t connect with the characters on an emotional level. I liked the characters though, especially Sanchez. He was a lot more sensitive and emotional than I thought he would be. There was, of course, there’s laugh out loud moments and lots of steamy moments as well. Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars.
“The best.” His lips grazed my ear. “Curves, know this,” His breath was hot on my neck, “If you need to cry, I’ll hold you until you’re done. Sometimes the only way to get over things, is to walk through them, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it on your own.”
My breath hitched in my chest. “Does that mean you’re going to walk with me?”
“That’s all I’ve wanted since meeting you.” He pulled back and gripped my hand. “You know, other than sex.”
I laughed, “You’re ridiculous, you know that right?”
“But, I did just make you laugh, when minutes ago you were crying. I hate those tears, Curves. Never want to be the cause of them, ever.”
“Don’t make promises you can’t keep.”
“I’m not.” He said it so sternly that I sucked in a breath. “I think I need to use that hand now…maybe on your chest, possibly that shirt.”
