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.**

Woot!!! Finally Drew's balls are back and his brains were now intact!!! Damn! There's nothing more happier than to see this man realize the biggest real deal in the history of his love life. After reading the previous books in this series,This is War and This is Love I wanted to smack the hell out of him so he could see clearly what he's been missing out. And now, to read something you've been looking forward be realized is worthy to be celebrated. Hoot! Really, this calls for a celebration and you know what's even more worthy of a grand celebration?This book of friends to lovers that had me wanting for MORE! This book that caused me a sleepless night and a meal haven't eaten. This book that had me wanting cuffs, policeman, muffins, and scorching sex stat and this book that made me change sides. I was previously team Traviola but now after reading This Is Reckless, I am proud to say I am team Drewtney.

I hate to say this but I wont spoil you anything instead maybe you'll just read plenty of ramblings here and there over my love for this book. I cannot help it. I am in love how it was written and in as much as I admit how cliche other parts is, I enjoyed every moment I had with it. My journey with them is so much more than just the fun but all the excitement because let's face it, first few pages and you'll hardly put it down. I just keep on turning the pages, enjoyed with every scenes clearly evident on my face. Cliche parts? Nah! More like, cliche what? Because I was so hooked I do not mind if it even exist. I was so lost into the bubble caused by Drew and Courtney. 

Gah! The feelings is just OFF THE CHARTS and the banter was so damn worthy to read. Who would have thought I will love this couple more than I love the first?Drew Fisher, you man is a fantasy I wanted to become a reality. He's overloaded with sweetness and hotness combined beautifully I was swooning all over. Oh God, I'll volunteer to be cuffed with him forever! There's no question why Courtney have been crushing this man for years. And Courtney, eeep!!! This woman is every man's dream I tell you. She's not just your ordinary woman. She's everything, O how I love her and her sassy and funny mouth. Them together is just perfect! Their chemistry is beyond amazing! I love, love everything with them. Mostly because I love the fact that there was no unnecessary twists and turns, instead I was given growth with both the characters, portrayed and delivered excellently. It was something just so refreshing and the fact the I was so entertained is an added bonus. I was laughing like I'm on crack. Melted like jelly because the sweetness is just worth melting for. Holy Jesus!!! even their sex scenes were just scorching I needed a cold shower. Gah! Drewtney they're just EVERYTHING.

Seriously this book is so good you do not need to ask if I'll recommend because I really will. It maybe cliche and at some point predictable, but hey, it was an enjoyable and fun read. All the feels is in this book. It's just so refreshing and heart warming. And that cliffy, oh let the next book be out soonest and if you wanted someone to torture Mia Fucking Montgomery, I can. I'll happily do it. Damn! I thought this woman was dead already? Well I thought wrong, it needs to be rectified though and I'll gladly help. Lol!!

To Kennedy Fox, hands down to your duo!! As always, you aim to deliver!
