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.

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


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

Fraternize by Rachel Van Dyken had all the feels and was so unexpected. I loved every word! A love triangle that will pull you in and have you guessing until the very end. I am a big fan of Rachel. She continues to give us stories that consume us.

Emerson Rodner was an amazing heroine. I loved her. She was determined and feisty. After years of trying out to be a cheerleader for the Bellevue Bucks, she finally wins a spot on the squad. She is excited, but she is not your average woman. She is curvy, but also okay with herself. But like every woman, insecurities sneak in. Her life has not been easy. She lost her best friend and the boy she gave her heart and body too her senior year of high school. Then her father falls ill and her life changes again.

Grant Sanchez is the team’s playboy who is arrogant and a player. He takes one look at Em and decides he wants her. Slowly his charming ways begin to bring down her walls. But what Em did not expect was to see the boy who broke her heart is now a man and part of the team as well. Miller is stunned when he sees Em again. Both Miller and Em hold resentment over how things ended between them.

Em is beyond excited to finally be a part of the Bellevue Bucks cheerleading squad. The biggest rule she has to follow? No fraternizing with the players. But what is a girl to do when two of the players are vying for her attention? One new and exciting and the other brings out old feelings and desires.

I loved both Miller and Grant. Both were really good guys. I laughed and felt so much while reading this book. Em was torn between past and present and it was easy to see why, but only one could win her heart. Fraternize was such a good read, funny, emotional and a bit angsty. Just enough to pull you right in!


“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.”
