Review- Infraction by Rachel Van Dyken

Summary-
New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken proves that everyone scores to win. But off the field, a fumble can change the entire game.
Pro footballer Miller Quinton would do anything for his best friend and teammate—including “fake dating” his friend’s sister. What no one knows is that seven months ago in Vegas, Miller and Kinsey did a whole lot more than just kiss. Miller knows that this cheerleader is off-limits to him and any guy on the team. Still, he can’t stop himself.
Kinsey’s whole world is on the verge of crumbling. Her dad has cancer. Her overprotective brother is falling apart. Dating Miller may be a fake-out, but he’s the one guy who can make her forget about everything—including all the reasons she stayed away from football players. With each heated moment, Miller feels more like a safe place…even though he’s not safe at all.
Now temptation is testing every rule in the game of love. But how long can they go on playing when winning is a harder goal than either of them imagined?

Review-

Infraction was one of those books I impulsively requested on Netgalley. I basically just saw the cover and blurb and my fingers hit request before I knew it. Leave aside the fact that I haven't read the first book in this series. Nor have I actually read anything by Rachel Van Dyken before. But I am so glad I gave this book a chance because as soon as I started reading it, I was hooked!

So this is the story of Miller and Kinsey. They had a one night stand in Vegas seven months ago after which Kinsey left for Europe because Miller insisted on it. Now Kinsey is back and her world is crumbling. To appease her overprotective brother Kinsey has to fake date Miller and things obviously get very complicated.

I really liked Kinsey. She was sassy and sweet but she definitely had her vulnerabilities. With her Dad having cancer and an abusive ex coming back she has a lot to deal with. Miller is the only one who can make her forget. Miller is a pro footballer. He wants to help his best friend Jax out but he doesn't want to risk his heart again. Obviously Miller can't help but be pulled in to Kinsey. She makes him feel good.

I loved the banter between Kinsey and Miller. They were so funny and flirty. Them calling each other chicken and waffle was just hilarious. Kinsey and Miller had great chemistry. They understood each other and always tried to make the other person feel better. Another point to be noted for Infraction is that this book goes from Miller, Kinsey AND Jax's point of view. Jax is the over protective brother who has a super hero complex.

I am a little bit on the fence about the necessity of Jax's pov. On one hand I genuinely liked seeing what was going inside of his head and seeing the start of his relationship with Harley. But on the other hand it took a little bit of something away from Miller and Kinsey's story. I wanted a bit more focus on them. But I loved seeing the entire gang together. Now I'm even more curious about Sanchez and Emerson and I think I need to read their book asap. Infraction was a great new adult book and I can't wait to read more from Rachel Van Dyken.
