Introducing book 1 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of bestselling authors! This friends to lovers romance will have you swooning and laughing from the first to the last page! Are you ready to play the game?
Drew Fisher is the type of guy every girl wants.
Noble police officer by day, charming prince by night.
He has no idea the effect he has on women, especially me—his little sister’s best friend.
I’m the blonde Southern belle who lives up to the cliché, except I have my own quirks. I’m smart as a whip, can change my own oil, and recite The Pledge of Allegiance backward, but he doesn’t see that girl.
It’d be easier to forget him if he wasn’t my roommate and if the first thing I saw in the morning wasn't his shirtless body covered in tattoos. I’ve crushed on him since the day we met, but he’s made it perfectly clear where we stand. Just friends.
I know I need to move on and accept that his feelings will never be mutual, but every day he smiles at me, I’m left dreaming of what if.
He has girl issues, and I’ve got a crush I can’t deny.
We’re friends, but I want more.
One drunken hookup leaves us with much more than a platonic friendship. Pretending it never happened proves to be more difficult than anticipated.
A crazy ex-girlfriend, a dangerous war of stolen glances, and passionate kisses leads to the most reckless battle yet. I won’t be a pawn in his game, but I’ll play by his rules if it will show him I’m the one worth breaking them for.
Checkmate, Prince Charming.
*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*
**This is book 1 of 2 in the Checkmate Duet Series--a friends to lovers romance. Highly recommended to read the Checkmate Duet, This is War and This is Love first, but not necessary. This can read as a standalone duet.**
Warning: Expect a lot of fangirling, rambling on excessively, and an abundance of explanation points in this review. Read at your own risk.
Another fantastic book from Kennedy Fox!! This writing duo just gets me. They know exactly what to write and how to write it to make me drool, jump around, and unable to put down the book. Each book of theirs that I read leaves me loving KF more and more. I’d have to say this one is probably my favorite thus far… but I have no doubt that I’ll continue to say that as the books roll in. I’m just completely obsessed with these books!!!
“My heart is pounding against my chest, and I wonder if she’s thinking the same thing I am.”
Drew and Courtney are roommates and best friends. They met through Drew’s sister, Viola, and have been living together happily for two years as strictly roommates and best friends. However, Courtney has had a crush on Drew for years. His sexy demeanor is undeniable, even when crossing that line could affect their friendship. Drew secretly has an attraction to Courtney as well, though he fights it with his entire being. His girlfriend, Mia (who we all hate, by the way), has a tight leash on him and tries to keep him from straying. But Drew can’t deny the dreams he has about Courtney and the attraction he has for her, which is much more than just a friendship. As these two begin to blur the line between friendship and more, we’re taken on a bumpy ride! Hold on tight and enjoy the emotional roller-coaster!!
I am now officially Team Drewtney!!!! ♥ ♥ Drew is my new book boyfriend. Totally. I don’t usually fall for the whole cop/uniform/handcuffs vibe, but MAAAAANNNNNN, Drew takes it to a whole new level!! I’m obsessed with him. (And totally not ashamed because, trust me, you will be too!) And Courtney is just adorable! I would definitely want to be friends with her. What a fun group of characters!
Checkmate: This is Reckless I suppose is technically the third book in this Checkmate Series. We do meet Drew and Courtney in Checkmate: This is War and Checkmate: This is Love, however it’s not necessary to read those prior to reading this book. Regardless, you should read those too because KENNEDY FOX IS LIFE!!! I really wish I knew who this writing duo is. Mostly because if one of them is an author that I haven’t read yet, I’d now want to go and read ALL THE BOOKS!! I do have suspicions now and then of who could be involved in this masterpiece duo, but until they’re ready to be revealed, I’ll just going on loving them like this. ♥
Bottom line: READ THESE BOOKS!! (Please and thank you.)
