Series: Checkmate Duet Series #1
Author: Kennedy Fox
Genre: Friends to Lovers Romance
Release Date: February 28
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.**
LOUISA’S 3.5 STAR REVIEW
Friends to lovers, brother’s best friend book with a bit of humor added in..what more could a girl ask for?
Drew and Courtney – character’s we met and loved in Checkmate: This is War and This is Love have gotten their own book and so glad Kennedy Fox gave this to us. A present wrapped up pretty with a smoking hot cover.
Drew – the hottie police offer friend of TravisCourtney – She’s Violet’s best friend an Travis’s assistant
Courtney – She’s Violet’s best friend an Travis’s assistant
Oh yeah – they are roomates!!
Waking up to ½ dress hottie firefighter Drew has made Courtney’s day but also it’s hard to see this man as just a friend.
And oh- yeah- that B**ch Mia is back and continues to cause trouble!
Spoiler Alert if you haven’t read The Checkmate series – do not read this book. You will enjoy it so much more if you have!
Drew is somewhat clueless to the bullshit of Mia, but everyone around him sees her for what she is – a biach. And Courtney has been watching this for so long.
There is no insta-love going on here, slow smoldering fire that once it’s ignites…can’t be snuffed out.
Courtney is so smart and loving and their “relationship” is moving at such a slow pace at first that once things start up – watch out!
I loved the banter between these two – the humor I love about a Kennedy Fox book is as expected!
Just waiting here patiently (ok – not patiently) for book 2…I need to see Mia go DOWN!
