The rain stopped, and the wind outside had settled, leaving an uncomfortable silence in its wake. I didn’t have a problem with the quiet. I liked it, in fact. But this was something a little different. This was uncomfortable. The kind of stillness that came from forced proximity to someone or something that made your skin itch and your stomach roil. The kind of hush that usually set in right before a devastating storm or a natural disaster.

He did this sometimes. Just sat across from me and stared. He usually wouldn’t even say anything. I didn’t think he expected me to say anything, either. He just looked. Sometimes it lasted a few minutes, just long enough to send that chill skittering up and down my spine. Other times it would go on for hours. He’d blink and breathe and fidget, but his eyes…those remained locked on me, his unhealthy mix of sadness and lust and greed and anger crushing me to the point of breathlessness.

We were at it again, and I was just about out of patience. It was one thing to have been ripped away from my home, from my life, by that madwoman, Cora Anderson. It was another to have her poke and prod and use me as a science experiment. She’d altered my mind. Made me forget most of my life before the day I woke up a prisoner on the floor of her cold, dank cell. Those things were all bad, but having been “rescued” by this bastard and forced to stay by his side at all times? That was an entirely new level of torture.

“You’re thinking about him again, aren’t you?” His tone was acidic and his jaw tight. He had a temper, this guy. I’d seen it multiple times. He’d never done anything more than scream at me, but it was only a matter of time with people like this. I wasn’t sure how I knew that, but I felt it in my bones. Maybe I’d known someone like him at home. Maybe it was just intuition.

“Yes,” was all I replied. I found that simple, one-word responses went over the best. Or, more accurately, the worst. When I said too little, he grew agitated. He wanted me to talk to him, yet the things that came out of my mouth weren’t ever what he wanted to hear. I didn’t act like he’d hoped I would, didn’t say the things he longed to hear. Some days he was determined to change me. Others, he was rabid, blaming me for not behaving like myself and demanding that I wake up.

Forget that I had no idea who I was.

“While it’s not okay, I understand.” He offered me a smile—a small, tentative twitch of his lips and gentle shrug of his shoulders. He was making an effort to be kinder today, going out of his way to speak softer and move slower.

That made me even angrier.

“You understand? Then my life is complete. All I’ve ever wanted was the understanding of a serial killer.” Even if I hadn’t been thinking about…someone else, I would have lied. The fact that I wasn’t focused on him, and him alone, drove Dylan—my savior, my captor—crazy. But the truth was, I was thinking of him. That other him. How could I not? Even if I didn’t find myself missing him every moment of every day in an almost physical way, I wouldn’t be able to put him out of my mind because he was technically sitting here across from me.

Book Review – Fraternize by Rachel Van Dyken




Published September 12th 2017 by Skyscape

Genre(s): New Adult, Romance, Contemporary, Sports

Kindle Edition, 320 pages
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.






Breathtakingly Sweet, Absolutely Fun, Deeply Affecting and a Delightfully Wonderful Story 


Sometimes books can surprise you and completely take your breath away. This book certainly did that and more. I don’t know why it took me so long to pick this book up, but I had so much fun reading Fraternize and still cannot stop thinking about it!

I think sports romances are seriously growing on me. Or maybe this book was just so well-written and filled with so many emotions that I fell instantly and ridiculously in love with the characters and their stories. Fraternize is hilarious, sweet, heartfelt, and deeply affecting. An amazingly breathtaking story about healing, forgiveness, friendship and finding love again. It had me swooning, laughing, crying and smiling through the ugly tears. I was an emotional mess… but the absolute best kind.

Love triangles suck… I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with them cause I never know how I’ll react. I honestly don’t like being torn and  that’s exactly how I was with this book. My heart was aching and splitting in two because I loved both Miller and Sanchez so damn much. They had a lot of amazing, adorable, and endearing qualities I love in book boyfriends…actually make that IRL. They were both passionate, protective, sweet, hard-working, caring, and would do anything for the people they love. They’re totally swoony, sexy, lovable, and undeniable hard to resist. Even if I did favor one over the other, I still couldn’t choose the “ONE” I wanted Emerson to pick. When it was obvious who she was going to choose, I didn’t want to keep reading, but at the same time I couldn’t stop. It was torture and I was prepared for so much heartbreak. However, as sad as I was for the man she left behind, I was actually really happy with who Emerson ended up with in the end. My heart certainly did break into pieces, but it was also full of hope, love, and so much joy by the time I finished. Everything just fell into place and I couldn’t be happier with how this story ended.

Fraternize is the first book I’ve read by Rachel Van Dyken and I’ll have you know that it most definitely will not be the last. The pacing was really great and her writing style is incredibly engaging, emotional, and wonderfully evocative. I loved the POVs and felt that I really connected with the characters and was able to experience all their pain, sadness, excitement, happiness, and love. I absolutely adored them all — Emerson, Kinsey, Miller, Sanchez, Jax and even the other side characters. They were just really charming, hilarious, and so likable.

The romances were sweet, cute and also painfully real. It had all the ups and downs, the smiles and tears, and every FEELS. I really enjoyed the past and present love stories and thought they were beautifully well-written. Also, huge props to Rachel Van Dyken for creating fantastic love interests. Like I said, I did favor one, but I truly cared for the both of them. I also loved that they wanted Emerson to be happy and did whatever they had to do to give Emerson her HEA. And that’s one of the main reasons I fell so hard for them. Not to mention, Miller and Sanchez had this adorably funny and heartwarming bromance that made me smile and swoon.

With amazingly written storylines, lovable characters, and heart tugging moments, Fraternize gave me plenty of achingly delicious swoons and feels. I adored every single moment from beginning to end and had one of the most delightfully emotional and affecting experience. I have no doubt that this will end up on my top favorite reads this year and I honestly cannot recommend it enough.
