Author: Kennedy Fox
Series: Checkmate #4
Published: April 25, 2017
Genre: Romantic Comedy, College Romance

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another 4 stars for this amazing series! Checkmate: This is Effortless, Drew & Courtney, #2, is book 4 in the Checkmate Duet Series by Kennedy Fox. This duet series follows three couples, each couple having two books to tell their stories.

OMG! This book was perfect! After the last book ended on an EPIC cliffy, I couldn’t read this one fast enough when it fell onto my Kindle.

Drew and Court were adorable together. She put up with A LOT of crap from his psycho ex and she was so much stronger than I would have been. Her brothers were hilarious and loved the interaction between the siblings.

There were lots of moments I laughed out loud and several more where I was caught with a goofy grin on my face. There were so many twists that left me saying “no way” or just laughing my ass off. In this book it was irrevocably proven that Travis is indeed the KING!

Kayla may be my spirit animal. I love that we got to know Kayla (aka, the doggy dealer) a little better and I can’t wait for the next book to find out more about the ever mysterious Logan.

I love this friends to lovers romance! If you haven’t yet read Kennedy Fox books, you need to get on that now! I highly recommend you start with This is War to get the full effect of the series. You won’t regret it!

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.

Checkmate, sweetheart.

Review: Checkmate – This is Reckless by Kennedy Fox

My “I’ll Just Be Over Here…” 4 star Review of Checkmate: This is Reckless by the awesome author duo Kennedy Fox.

NOOOOO! I’ll be over here, rocking in the corner, waiting on the next book to come out so I can stop all the tears. This book just ended on ONE HELL OF A CLIFFY!

Checkmate: This is Reckless, Drew & Courtney #1, is book 3 in the Checkmate Duet Series by Kennedy Fox. This duet series follows three couples, each couple having two books to tell their stories.

Where to start. This is the first book I’ve read by these two talented ladies and it will not be the last!

This book is a friends to lovers read. It was sweet to see the way Drew and Courtney interacted. It was easy. Drew needed easy, since his on again off again girlfriend was anything but. Mia was such a jealous and selfish woman. She continued to manipulate Drew for years until he finally saw her for what she was. I was sooooo ecstatic to see him finally open his eyes to see what a great person Courtney was. Not only as a best friend, but more.

One night of passion and one misunderstanding later I was flipping these pages so fast just to see what happened next! One minute I’m swooning over how sweet these two are together and then came the WTH…NOOOO moment.

Cliffhangers aren’t a favorite for me, but this was nicely done. I can’t wait to read what’s next! If you haven’t yet read Kennedy Fox books, you need to get on that now! I highly recommend you start with This is War to get the full effect of the series. You won’t regret it!

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.
