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.**
So after the way that Checkmate This Is War ended I was salivating needing Checkmate This Is Love immediately. It picks up where we are left off with that kindle breaking cliffhanger that about had me losing my mind. So with all of that build up I was like oh Checkmate This Is Love is going to be so good, and it was good but I just didn’t love it.
I had issues with Viola in the first book but I had started to like her at the end but in this one, how can I explain it. You know that sound when you scrape nails on a chalkboard, that annoying sound that you can’t stand? Well that is how she ended up being for me in this one. I went in having her back but ended up really just thinking she was immature, petty and selfish.
We won’t even talk about Mia, cause that bitch deserves well to put it nicely a front kick in the vagina for all of her games and shit.
So we shall move on to Travis, oh how I love Travis I was so team King it wasn’t funny! He honestly won me over in the first book and I didn’t want to believe what I had read so I went in with my fingers crossed that I would continue to love him and I did. He did not deserve to go through what Viola puts him through but what I loved the most is he stayed true to his true self, not the manwhore we first came to know him as. More than once I fell in love with him.
Now I am almost on edge when it comes to the next book. I pray to the book gods that Kennedy Fox doesn’t make me hate them (temporarily of course) because the potential is there if it goes in the direction I am cringing at thinking. While I had some issues with Checkmate This Is Love I still laughed my ass off more than once and did like it a lot.
