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.

Checkmate, sweetheart.

*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.**

My Review –


4.5 Is Our Love Strong Enough? Stars!!






*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from the Authors*



Thank you so very much to the Kennedy Fox duo!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 🙂



After that shocking ending in This Is Reckless I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one!! It picks up right where the last one left off. I really enjoyed it!! I was on the edge of my seat with my eyes glued to my kindle to find out what would happen to Courtney and Drew next. Once again my emotions were all over the place which I loved. I was so happy to be back in both of the main characters minds. I wasn’t sure how everything would end which made me all kinds of nervous. It was even sexier and more action packed than the first one!! So many jaw dropping moments!!



The Kennedy Fox duo have done it once again!! Their books are like an addiction. I can always count on them to bring the heat, the sweetness, the angst, and the suspense!! I hated to see Courtney Bishop and Drew Fisher’s story come to an end but I was so glad to get answers. I’m still over here wishing *cough cough* Daydreaming about being Drew’s Sweetheart. I am so stinking excited for Logan and Kayla’s book This Is Dangerous!! 🙂



If you haven’t already One-Clicked , What are you waiting for?!?! Buy it Today!! Haven’t started the Checkmate Duet Series or picked up book 1 in this duet This Is Reckless?! Trust me, you do NOT want to miss out on this series!! I’ll wait here while you do some clicking and reading, you can thank me later. 😉 It’s time to sink your teeth into something so very sweet. 😉 I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did my fellow book lovers!! 4.5 Stars all around!! 🙂
