    Infraction is book two in the Players Game series by Rachel Van Dyken. I fell madly in love with the first book in this series, Fraternize so I was sure that I couldn’t love this second book as much. Well, I was wrong. I might even love it more. This series is amazing. Infraction is the perfect blend of laugh out loud funny and hug your teddy bear heart breaking. You will not only get Miller and Kinsey’s story, but also Jax and Harley’s story at the same time. Plus, getting updates on Sanchez and Emerson from the first book. What more could you ask for?

    Quinton Miller plays tight end for the Bellevue Bucks football team. We knew something was brewing between he and Kinsey Romonov in the previous book and we know something happened between them at the end of that book. Well, now, its seven months later. Kinsey has been out of the country at the insistence of her brother, Jax, and also Miller. But now she’s back. Miller has done his best to avoid her since she came back but when Jax asks him to be his sister’s fake boyfriend to help to keep a crazy ex of Kinsey’s away from her, they are again thrown together. And even if he is supposed to be faking his feelings for her, the feelings he is having are anything but fake.

    Jax Romonov has spent his lifetime protecting his little sister. That’s what big brother’s do, right? But when her ex-boyfriend, Anderson Harris, hurt her, he hadn’t protected her. Now Anderson is trying out for their team and Jax doesn’t want him anywhere near his sister. So he asks his best friend to be her fake boyfriend. He trusts Miller would never touch his sister. If he did, he knows he would kill him. Jax and Kinsey’s father is sick with cancer so here is another thing he can’t protect his sister from, the pain of losing their father. With the preseason almost ready to start, Jax has to get his head on straight. It’s not enough that he’s worrying about his sister and Dad, then Harley walks into his life and throws him into a complete tailspin. She teases him, challenges him, makes fun of him, and he can’t think of anything else but her.

    Kinsey Romonov is a cheerleader for the Bucks. She is sick and tired of her overprotective brother trying to run her life. And then he has the nerve to force her into a fake relationship with Miller. Seven months ago Miller turned his back on her after their night together. He even helped to put her on the plane to send her out of the country. But she can’t help herself. As soon as she sees him again, it’s all still there. That crazy attraction, that pull between them.

    Kinsey and Miller agree to be friends only but that doesn’t last long. The chemistry between them is crazy strong. And Miller finds himself wanting more from her, more of her. Jax, though, would literally put him in a grave somewhere if he knew what happened all those months ago in Vegas. And if he knew what he was thinking now!

    As Kinsey and Jax’s father gets increasingly ill, the bonds between both Kinsey and Miller, and Jax and Harley, strengthen. There are so many laugh out loud moments in this book. I fell completely in love with Kinsey and Jax’s family. They were crazy and hilarious and so full of love for one another it made my throat ache. But don’t get me wrong, there are also plenty of heart breaking moments as secrets from the past are revealed, and as their father worsens. I feel like I watched Miller literally grow up in this book. He had events from his past crippling him emotionally. But Kinsey made him want more, to take the risk and give her his heart in hopes that she would give him hers as well.

    I fell in love with Quinton Miller in the first book of this series and didn’t think it was possible to love him more but I was wrong. This man melted me into a puddle of goo. I loved he and Kinsey together. And Jax with all his over the top protectiveness was still perfect. Add in heaps of hilarity from Sanchez. I don’t remember him being so hilarious. This series is a must read. I loved both books with all my heart. There is a scene towards the end of this book that made my eyes leak. I’m not saying what it was, you’ll know when you get there. I hope you get a chance to give this series a go. I can’t say enough how much I loved them.

    I laughed so hard that I cried, and as the story progressed and I cried for the characters that became friends and went through difficult times. In the end though I had a huge smile that signaled a great read.

    When Miller Quinton accepted his best friend and teammate’s request to fake date his little sister, he did so with some personal doubt because he’s already capitulated to her once. Pretending to be in a relationship with her to keep her abusive ex at bay won’t be a problem. The tricky part will be to feign detachment for the sake of his best, but mostly his damaged heart.

    Kinsey’s life is coming undone. Her overprotective brother Jax, not only revealed the fact that their father has cancer but that her ex is being considered to join the team. Going along with the rouse to date Miller to keep her brother from worrying is a bad idea because she’d already fallen for Miller once without anyone knowing. Can she risk her heart a second time while hiding her feelings?

    I’ve read many of Van Dyken’s creations and have enjoyed all of them. Infraction is a wonderful brew of fun and sexiness, heartbreak and joy that produced a great deal of smiles, laughs along with some tears I didn’t expect but certainly appreciated because nothing beats that great combo: laugh, cry, smile and swoon.

    There were many elements I liked about this story. Jax and Kinsey’s mom and dad, and Miller’s grandma were a lovely example of what parents should be like, loving, understanding and with a sense of humor. The friendship between the players was also showcased. And then there were the main characters and Jax. Yes, Jax got several chapters with his own point of view which were not only insightful to the man with the hero complex but also a great guy who deserved his own love story. I suspect we’ll be getting more of Jax and Harley in future installments or a story of their own.

    Kinsey and Miller were already friends but they blurred that line one night in Vegas several backs prior. The connection and attraction is still there though and being forced to be in close proximity to each other on a daily basis only makes matters worse. Both were likeable characters I was happily on board with. I loved the push and pull between the, as well as their witty banter and all the heat between them.

    Rachel Van Dyken creates a story as heartfelt as it is hilarious, a tribute to living life at its fullest. Infraction is book #2 of the Players Game series. It is standalone contemporary sports romance. It’s a friends to lovers, forbidden brother-best-friend story. Told from several points of view and has a happy ending.

    sorry. Here’s a lil’ summin’ to make it up to you . . . .

    When we last left our players we were in Vegas where there was a surprise guest in someone’s bed . . . .

    Deciding the old adage “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” are words to live by, Miller and Kinsey agreed to tell no one and Miller promptly shoved Kinsey on the nearest plane to Europe for the summer. It turns out that absence may indeed make the heart grow fonder and when Miller is requested by his teammate/Kinsey’s overprotective brother to “fake date” her upon her return, things start heating up . . . .

    I’m going to address the pink elephant in the room real quick because I am nothing but brutally honest at all times. Jax, the brother??? I got less of a “overprotective” vibe and more of a . . . .

    And believe me when I say the big reveal didn’t make things better. That being said, Jax and Harley’s story being thrown in was an unexpected treat and it helped reduce my squicky reaction. Miller and Kinsey were just as adorable as Emerson and Sanchez were in

    , the angst (brother lovin’ aside) was real life shit people should be angsty about and when we finally reached the halfway mark and got down to bidness?????

    It was guuuuuuuuuud.

    After reading Fraternize (Players Game #1), I couldn’t wait to read the sequel Infraction. I absolutely adored book one and the anticipation was driving me mad. With Fraternize, Rachel Van Dyken managed to write an amazing sports romance that impressed me with its unique plot and execution. Infraction had big shoes to fill.

    And luckily for me, it did!!!

    With Infraction, RVD delivered a book that was equally funny and sexy, but what I was not expecting was the emotional depth of the story

    After reading Fraternize (Players Game #1), I couldn’t wait to read the sequel Infraction. I absolutely adored book one and the anticipation was driving me mad. With Fraternize, Rachel Van Dyken managed to write an amazing sports romance that impressed me with its unique plot and execution. Infraction had big shoes to fill.

    And luckily for me, it did!!!

    With Infraction, RVD delivered a book that was equally funny and sexy, but what I was not expecting was the emotional depth of the story and it’s cast of characters. The author really dug deep and wrote a story from the heart. I’m not ashamed to admit that I had tears in my eyes by the end of the story – a true tearjerker, especially since I didn’t expect it. BRAVO!!!

    In Infraction, it’s not just about finding the love of your life. It’s about family, blood related or not, friends and how they stick together through thick and thin. I was blown away by the all consuming love that literally jumped off the pages. This book was about so much more than just one couple falling in love. I fell in love with the entire cast, and the author could not have done a better job. Kudos, Ms. Van Dyken!

    After reading Miller, Emerson, and Sanchez’s story in book one I couldn’t wait to see how Miller’s story would continue. He was a main character in Fraternize and his charm and personality made him a huge favorite of mine. I can say with utter conviction, he topped my expectations by leaps and bounds. He was someone I could easily fall in love with.

    Miller is such an amazing character.

    From the gentlemanly way he treated Kinsley, to the camaraderie that he had with Jax and Sanchez, a bromance for the ages – Miller stood out like a beacon. His steadfast personality, and self-assured demeanor was what Kinsley needed most. Someone to stand by her side, to stay his ground, in a supportive as well as confident manner. He is a great guy; amazing through and through!

    Kinsley on the other hand was one tough cookie. Strong-willed, a survivor, but also a younger sister to an overly overprotective older brother, Jax, she managed to elbow her way through tough times and come out stronger on the other side. Her engaging and lovable attitude matched Miller’s teasing and charming personality. Whenever they were together, their chemistry was undeniably palpable. It’s no secret they belong together.

    Besides the amazing couple that Miller and Kinsley are, the author gifted us with the hilarious and heartwarming story of Jax finding his better half. Infraction, honestly was stuffed full of all things cute, funny and sexy. The deep and genuine friendships between the cast speaks for itself. So much laughing and teasing and all-around love. The sassy and amusing dialogues were just a small example of RVD’s signature wit. She has a true and rare talent to bring out the best in her characters. I immediately connected with them and wanted to call them friends.

    Most surprising, Infraction made me cry.

    I didn’t cry buckets, but shed tears nonetheless. Throughout the book I ached for Kinsley and Jax on more than one occasion. I was truly affected by the way the author spun this emotionally touching story that will stay with me for a very long time.

    Infraction is perfectly balanced. It’s romantic, sexy and funny, and it has the right amount of heart-ache to pull on my heart-strings— for me to feel an emotional connection. At this point I can, with all honesty, say that Infraction was even better than Fraternize. The emotional punch and the never-ending love between the cast made this book soar and touch my heart.

    Kinsey and Miller were amazing to read about and I loved their friendly back and forth with one another. Theirs wasn't a super angsty read which I really liked, instead we got to see the funny and witty banter between them that had me cracking a smile multiple times. It was just a really fun book to read even though there were times it had me reaching for the tissues. Those funny moments made the sad ones worth it and I really liked that there was a good balance between the two.

    I also loved that we got the bonus of a little side romance between Jax and Harley. I usually wouldn't be a fan of someone else getting so many POV's but this author of course wrote it so well that Jax's POV blended perfectly with Kinsey and Miller's and it actually added a lot to the overall story.

    Bottom line, if your a fan of the brother-best-friend trope like I am then this is your next book. I would even say that you could read it as a standalone if you weren't easily curious about side characters that are mentioned in books.

    is the second book in Rachel Van Dyken’s ‘Players Game’ series and since it’s about Miller, who was my favorite character of the first book, I was so excited to get to it! When I got approved for an arc on Netgalley I jumped in straight away. I enjoyed this book lots! Miller is still a favorite of mine, but I also adored Jax in this one! I’m hoping we get his story next!

    is the second book in Rachel Van Dyken’s ‘Players Game’ series and since it’s about Miller, who was my favorite character of the first book, I was so excited to get to it! When I got approved for an arc on Netgalley I jumped in straight away. I enjoyed this book lots! Miller is still a favorite of mine, but I also adored Jax in this one! I’m hoping we get his story next!

    Miller has it bad for Kinsey, and she likes him as well, but there is one big problem… that big problem is Jax, Kinsey’s older and very overprotective brother who is also Miller’s teammate. Jax has his reasons being as protective as he is, and it really helped getting his POV so we could see that. I understood him and ended up loving him by the end, because I got it, and I respected him for it.

    Back to Miller and Kinsey… these two have a connection, attraction, and friendship. They can have fun together and seem like a perfect pair. They both realize that, but things with Jax make it complicated between them. Miller is supposed to be looking after Kinsey for Jax, and if Jax knew the kind of feelings Miller had for his little sister, it wouldn’t be good. This results in the two of them hiding their feelings, and then, hiding their relationship… you can guess how that turns out!

    Most of this story truly was a joy to read. Toward the end… well, lets just say I cried for a solid 20 minutes reading. I didn’t expect for this book to make me cry, but there were some emotional parts at the end that really got to me. Most of the book, however, was a lot of fun and much lighter.

    I love the banter, the steamy and swoony moments, the friendship, the family, and all the emotion.

    is an entertaining read and a solid 4 stars! If you’re looking for a heartwarming story that will make you laugh and make you cry, I highly recommend!

    ➦I enjoyed this NA read very much. Fake relationship trope + overprotective big brother. Except in this case it's that said brother who asks his best friend to fake date his baby sister.

    ➦I looooove reading about the cheerleaders and football players. It felt like this book was a little bit less "sporty" than the last one. There were, however, some real nice scenes of the boys during game play. I always get super emo during those.

    ➦One thing I find consistent in these installments is 3 POVs. And now I suddenly see where Rachel Van Dyken is going with this. She throws in a POV of the guy who will star in the next book of the series. It's different and interesting. I felt a little bit like it was too much, however. I do prefer to get a little mention of "things to come" but having to read scenes about other couple sort of took me out of this particular story at times.

    ➦Recommended to anyone who loves NA, football romances, fake relationship tropes and brother's best friend tropes in their love stories. Sealed.

    Miller is told by Kinsey's brother Jax to 'pretend date' his sister to keep her exes hands off her. So Miller gets ready for the job.

    The thing is...Kinsey and her older brother Jax have a weird relationship. He is OVERLY protective to the point where I think I was grossed out.

    Even after the story took a different turn and Jax had his own bang time..It just still felt kinda off in my head and interrupted my sexy time thinking.

    Then we have Kinsey's character. Who everyone keeps saying is such a strong woman. Then every other page I felt like someone was having to protect her or her feelings.

    The crazy thing is? I actually kinda liked the book.

I really love the writing style a lot, it has lots of funny dialogue and the internal monologue didn't make me cringe, okay I cringed a little its a romance book. The book is so addicting that I could not put it down till I finished it.

    The relationship between the characters is my favourite thing in this book, they love each other so much and will be there for each other, even though the guys always make fun of each other in public.I find Jax's over protectiveness unhealthy, its a good thing the author rectified that situation.

    The plot is not unique but its so well portrayed you won't mind, Its cheesy and has lots of tropes and cliches but the characters are so original and has really cool personalities and also they are not one dimensional.
