Goodreads Synopsis

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.**


My Review –


4 Open Your Eyes To My Love Stars!!






*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from The Hype PR*




Thank you so very much The Hype PR!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 🙂



This was my first time reading the Kennedy Fox duo’s work! I really enjoyed it! I liked the fact that it was told in Dual POVs! At certain points I was in tears from laughing so hard and in others I was blushing like crazy. This novel had a little bit of everything in it which I loved! Courtney and Drew’s story was so much fun to read! They drove me mad at times but I adored them.


The Kennedy Fox duo created such hilarious and sexy read! I always like it when two authors combine forces and come up with one fantastic story like this one! The secondary characters were as entertaining as the main characters! The family aspect warmed my heart! I did NOT expect that ending! I’m still saying many days later “What the hell just happened?!” I NEED Book 2 so badly! I can’t wait for This Is Effortless! 🙂


This Is Reckless is about Courtney Bishop who loves to bake and Drew Fisher who is a police officer. They are best friends and roommates. The thing is though Courtney has feelings for him and with every passing day it’s getting harder to hide them. Will Drew Open his eyes and finally see how she feels? Or will she always be stuck in the friend zone? One thing is for certain – Things are about to get messy.



If you haven’t already One-Clicked, Buy It Today!! I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did!! I hope it makes you laugh and brightens your day like it did mine my fellow book lovers! If anyone needs me I’ll be over in my favorite reading spot wishing I had some Blueberry Muffins. 4 Stars all around!! 🙂
