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?

As Emerson and Sanchez fall more in love, Miller and Kinsey fumble their way through their residual feelings for them and the new feelings for each other. In book one, it was hard to see these two hurting and I wanted them to get their own happily ever after. As to be expected, it was quite the bumpy road.
Miller has so many unresolved emotions from losing his mom at a young age to losing the girl he thought was his forever, that he doesn't want to open himself to more hurt no matter how much the pull to Kinsey is.
Kinsey seemed like the happy go lucky girl in the first book who had the overprotective brother to deal with. What we learn in this book is why Jax is so overprotective and that Kinsey has a lot to deal with in her life that she is still trying to overcome. It doesn't help when Jax won't let her move on.
Then there is Jax. The overprotective brother that was constantly blocking Miller and Kinsey's way to each other. To try to distract Jax, Kinsey introduces him to Harley, the athletic gear model. It was like getting a bonus story within the main story. Who doesn't fall for the overprotective male? This couple was cute and you just want to root for Jax finding his happily ever after as well.
Rachel Van Dyken really does a good job of bringing out the best in her characters. You get to see the serious but also the the fun side to each of them. The easy camaraderie they all have and how much you would like to be apart of the group as if they are real. I love this group of people and can't wait to see who is next! ARC provided by Netgalley.
