Checkmate Bannerunnamed (4)
Title: Checkmate: This is Reckless
Series: Checkmate Duet Series #1
Author: Kennedy Fox
Genre: Friends to Lovers Romance
Release Date: February 28
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.**

UGHHHH....SH*T....okay now that, that is out of the way I can attempt to move on. While this book can be read as a standalone I would recommend reading the two before it; one because Travis, two because you get a sense of who these characters on and three it built up a lot of anticipation for this one.

Courtney has been in lust with Drew for years. Being his now roommate has not tempered those feelings at all, especially now that he is one of her best friends. Drew is oblivious to the was Courtney feels as he is dealing with his own on-again-off-again relationship with the shedevil. They have danced this dance for sometime, have a routine and then Courtney manages to sneak her way into Drew's thoughts in a different way.

Courtney is a great character, a southern belle who is not afraid to get her hands dirty or floury. She is sassy, funny, a great friend and apparently has a thing for handcuffs (who knew). I have had a crush on her for two books now and I love that what you see is what you get with her. She doesn't pretend to be something she is not; she is confident but has a vulnerability to her too. Drew can sometimes be a dumb boy and too blinded by evil to see what is right there. His unhealthy relationship has caused a lot of problems for him and hopefully this will be the final off-again. Besides him being blind, he has a great heart, is a good guy and smoking under that badge. While not a fun as Courtney is, he can totally hold his own and is completely swoon-worthy. 

I enjoyed this book; it had some drama, chemistry (okay a lot of chemistry), it made me laugh and even "awe" a few times. It was nice to see what Travis and Violet were up to and maybe setting us up for another story?? I did kind of expected the ending that we got (well, sort of), leaving me to stalk away to see when the next book is coming out.
