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?
Something happened between Miller and Kinsey in Vegas. Kinsey didn’t expect Miller to literally help her out of the country the night after. Miller was afraid to get his feelings hurt again, so he pushed Kinsey away. Now Kinsey is back, and they her brother Jax got this brilliant idea for her and Miller to date to get her ex boyfriend to back off. It was supposed to be pretend, but we all know that it never stays that way.
Miller was so stupid, and he was such a coward. He really hurt Kinsey when he sent her away. I know they weren’t together, but I didn’t like that he wasn’t celibate when Kinsey was out of the country. It just bothered me. I got over it throughout the story. Miller was just too cute to not forgive.
Jax is the best brother anyone could ever ask for. Yes, he was too overprotective, but he had his reasons. I’ve always wanted a big brother, and he’s who I would choose if given a chance. I really looked forward to his POVs. I love his story as well. I was expecting a separate book for him, but it looks like we’re not getting that.
Kinsey was a little firecracker. I never expected her to have such a dark past. I’m so proud of what she overcame. It’s really hard to leave an abusive relationship. I really enjoyed this book. I hope there are more to come!
