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.**
4 effortless stars!! Another wonderful book from this author duo!!
This book is not a stand alone and should be read as book #4 in the checkmate series. And if not that then at least as book 2 in the Drew & Courtney saga. Either way you will not be disappointed with these books!
This is a continuation of Drew and Courtney’s love story. Whom we all knew were great friends who are now great lovers except there is one problem…Mia Montgomery!! She is Drew’s ex and she is not letting go!! Can Drew keep Courtney safe?!?! Will Courtney be able to deal with Mia’s drama?!?!
“Loving you has and will always be effortless…”
I enjoyed this book. I knew I would love Drew & Courtney’s story but the whole Mia spin was good. I also love all the other characters spun in who we have all loved since book 1. Drew is what every woman deserves!! I love Courtney’s family as well. Texas was some of my favorite parts of the book. The end teared me up a bit but with beautiful tears!! Now I am so excited to read Logan & Kayla’s story. He is such a mystery that I so want to uncover!! I think this story was good but I kept setting it down and felt a little disconnected in the middle but the end picked right back up.
**I received this book as an ARC and in return gave my honest review** ~Melissa J (Book Addicts Reviews)
