Fraternize, an all-new sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller Rachel Van Dyken is LIVE!!
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.

It’s no secret how much I love Rachel Van Dyken and her books. She’s an amazing woman, writer, friend and a genuinely good person. She writes incredibly good stories and I have read so many I’ve lost count. I love her characters and the way she writes and I will read anything by her. Sandra, my blog partner, and I buddy read this goodness. We laughed and cried together and the chat messages were hilarious! Fraternize is one of my favorite Rachel Van Dyken books and that’s saying something!!
I’m a huge sports romance fan so I knew Fraternize was going to be awesome. What’s better than one sexy football player? That’s right, two. Add in a curvy, gorgeous heroine and I was hooked from the very first word. This isn’t really a love triangle and there isn’t any cheating! It’s a story about a girl who lands her dream job as a cheerleader for her favorite football team. Only to find out her ex-best friend now plays for them. She hasn’t seen Miller in six years. She still loves him. But, Grant Sanchez, famous, rich, sexy wide receiver has his eyes on her and she likes it. She finds herself smiling and laughing with Grant, but feeling guilty about Miller. Grant is relentless and honest. He wants her and he’s going to get her. Miller wants to hate Grant for staking a claim, but he can’t, Grant’s a good guy. What happens when your past collides with your future? When you don’t get what you thought you want, but you get what you need? I can’t spoil it for you, but I was #TeamGrant from the start. I love him. I love his face. His mouth. His honestly. He’s hilarious, smart, sweet, sexy and fun. Miller is funny, sexy, sweet and knows Emerson better than anyone. I loved the dynamic between Grant and Miller. The bromance is epic! They were teammates who wanted the same woman but quickly became brothers. The locker room jokes and man hugs gave me all the feels! I especially loved Emerson and her plus size figure. I haven’t related to a character this well in a long time. I cried for her and cheered for her. I am her. She’s one of my favorite leading ladies of Rachel’s. Not because she’s not skinny, but because she loves herself. She’s proud to have curves and she owns it! And she eats! I loved this book. So much! I didn’t want it to end!! Overall, I laughed out loud, cried more than five times, swooned and highlighted almost thirty sections!
Could a person die if they experience too much sexy in one minute?
The man kissed like the played – without apology and without fear.
“Careful, Curves. If you lick it, you have to keep it.”
“Who says I’m not keeping you?”
I was on sensory overload and was pinned down by over two hundred and fifty pounds of Bellevue Buck wide receiver. He made me feel powerful – sexy.
“Damn, those two together are completely lethal. I wonder if they’d be okay with a little ménage moment, nothing crazy, just, you know -” – Kinsey.
“Don’t take it personally. I saw her staring at a cookie the other day before throwing it in the trash.”
“No!” Kinsey stomped her foot. “How wasteful! You think it’s still there?”
“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.”
