The anticipated conclusion of The Checkmate Duet from a secret duo of bestselling authors! Checkmate: This is War is an enemies to lovers romance that will have you crying with laughter one moment and screaming in frustration the next... but you'll be begging to play the game with The King.
Viola Fisher is the epitome of perfection.
She despises my one-night stands and mocks my less-than-classy habits.
She’s smart, beautiful, and too good to be true.
And I want her.
If she were anyone else, I’d have made my move years ago, but considering she’s my best friend’s little sister, she’s always been off-limits. Not to mention how much she loathes my very existence.
Hating me is her religion, but needing her is mine. Her sexy curves and filthy smart mouth make me want her even more, and I’m more determined than ever to change her mind.
I’ll prove I’m done playing games.
But until then, we’ll continue to play by her rules.
Viola Fisher may have won the battle, but the war isn’t over yet.
*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*
**This is Love is book in the Checkmate Duet. You must read This is War first.**
Kennedy Fox is a duo of bestselling authors who share a love of You've Got Mail and The Holiday. When they aren't bonding over romantic comedies, they like to brainstorm new book ideas. One day, they decided to collaborate together under a pseudonym and have some fun creating new characters that'll make your lady bits tingle and your heart melt. If you enjoy romance stories with sexy, tattooed alpha males and smart, independent women, then a Kennedy Fox book is for you!
To be honest, I liked it, but didn't love it. Book 1 ended with a pretty big cliff hanger that turned out to be not such a big deal.
I enjoyed Travis and Viola more in this book and loved the growing relationship between the two, but I didn't really understand why they felt the need to keep things hidden.
The lack of communication (between Viola and Travis , Travis and Drew, as well Viola and Drew) seemed to create unnecessary issues when there was enough natural drama thanks to Mia and other live events.
The book is well written and fairly seemless given that it is a joint effort. I am looking forward to the series continuation with Drew's story.
