Introducing book 1 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of romance authors under the USA Today bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox!
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.**
OH WOW! I thought the first duet was epic…. This one is just out of the park as well. I am not so sure Travis is King anymore! Drew has given him a run for his money! He will swoon you off your feet and make you all mushy inside.
What I really loved about this book as it flows with the first duet as it’s during the time of Travis and Viola getting ready to get married. I really love Courtney’s spunk. She is sassy and gives as good as she gets but she also is very much an emotional girl that is in love with her roommate. Drew is clueless till certain events arise and then all hell breaks loose. I love how these two are together. They just meld into one and move like magnets. Their passion and chemistry is amazing but they also have a great banter outside the bedroom. I love seeing more of Viola and Travis too.
I have to say though.. That ending… I am just OMFG I NEED MORE NOW!!! There were some really good twists in this one, especially that ending! I was in shock and pulling a WTF did I just read! I seriously think it needs to be April STAT!
