Title: Checkmate: This Is Love
Series: Checkmate Duet #2
Author: Kennedy Fox
Genre: Enemies to Lovers Romance
Release Date: December 13
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.**
Oh what a ride this was of Travis and Viola! I really enjoyed this duet. Between the banter and the angst, it hit on every level for me! This one starts essentially right off from the previous, however you learn a few more details which I am so glad for because I was fuming at Travis at the end of This is War! Travis and Viola's connection is amazing in so many ways. They have great chemistry and passion but they also have this wit and sarcasm that makes you laugh and swoon at the same time.
All I can really say is Mia needs to drop off the face of the planet. I disliked her harshly for some reason in the first book and in this one, I now know why. Drew so deserves better! He is the epic big brother in every way and the way that Courtney tries to get his attention makes me giggle and feel for her because of her unrequited love for him!
Overall, this series is one of my top ones of the year! I really cannot see what is in store next for us from Kennedy Fox!
