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.**
Damn you Kennedy Fox you owe me a new kindle because I threw mine multiple times while reading Checkmate: This Is Reckless. I may or may not have also called you a name or twenty when I was throwing said kindle. The roller coaster ride you took us on left me anxious, nauseous and my heartbeat racing. Now you can read this one without reading the previous books but I think it is best if you have that additional background going in, just makes the connection between Drew and Courtney more real.
I am not going to get into much detail but I am going to break it down a bit because I don’t want to spoil it. Drew, my oh my Drew he may possibly be my new book boyfriend because just well he’s Drew. Courtney is sweet and funny and I loved her throughout. Now it must be said Mia, well that bitch needs to be shoved in front of an oncoming train. Can you tell I still hate her? Then there is that cliffhanger but I had a feeling Ms. Fox would torment us once more and she did.
This is a definite must read but if you aren’t a fan of cliffhangers you may want to wait until the second book is out or you will be cussing a lot like I am at the moment.
