Title: Checkmate: This is Effortless Series: Checkmate Duet Series (Drew & Courtney, #2) Author: Kennedy Fox Genre: Contemporary Romance Trope: Friends to Lovers Photographer & Designer: Sara Eirew Release Date: April 25, 2017
Introducing book 2 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of romance authors who teamed up 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?
Courtney Bishop is as sugary sweet as her famous blueberry muffins.
Southern belle at heart, Cali girl by choice.
She barged into my life and easily became my best friend.
All was great as roommates and just friends, but then I fell for the girl who could chop firewood, deliver baby calves, and bail hay without breaking a sweat.
She’s the perfect mixture of sugar and spice, and I love her.
Being more than friends and trying to build our future isn’t as easy as it sounds.
Moving forward and creating memories is all I want for us, but when the past continues to come back and haunt me, I’m not so sure she’ll stay for the ride.
Loving her is easy, but losing her will break me. Burning passion combined with an undeniable chemistry constantly pushes and pulls us together. In the end, I’ll prove we’re worth the fight, even when the game is far from over.
*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*
**This is book 2 in the Checkmate Duet Series–a friends to lovers romance. You must read book 1, Checkmate: This is Reckless first. 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.**
OMG what a ride this duet has been! Between the passion that Courtney and Drew have and Mia F**KING Montgomery, I devoured this book and wanted more! With every little thing that happens to Courtney and Drew, just solidifies their relationship! There were so many twists included with this one that I laughed, I wanted to scream and I was so emotionally involved!
I really loved how this one picked up right after the first in the duet and flows amazingly. I love looking in on Travis and Viola as well. I giggled a lot when it came to those two. I think the one thing I really found amazing about this book is even though Mia is evil, she strengthens the relationship between Courtney and Drew. Even with some screw ups along the way, their bond is tighter!
Overall I adore anything that Kennedy Fox puts out! This duet was just as epic as the first and yes I squeed when I saw which couple is coming next!! BRING IT ON!
