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.
*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.**

Man, I wish I knew the 2 authors who make up Kennedy Fox!! This is the 4th book in this series. But, its the second and final book for Drew & Courtney's story. You MUST read their first book. And, if I were you I'd read Travis and Viola's story too. We pick up right where we've left off. Mia has crashed Drew and Courtney's vacation. When she's broken into their hotel room and has finally showed the fact that there's something seriously wrong with her. For the first time Drew's eyes are open to who she really is. Drew never expected to fall in love with Courtney. He was blind to what was in front of him for years. But, his eyes have opened and his heart has been filled with Courtney. She's his soulmate and Drew will do whatever is possible to keep Courtney safe. He wants a life with Courtney and he won't let Mia do anything to stop that. Courtney has been in love with Drew since day #1. She never thought he'd see her as more then his younger sisters annoying friend. Then they became roommates/best friends. But, now that Drew has finally seen her as more then that Courtney won't let Mia or anybody take him away from her. No matter how much gets thrown at them, Courtney won't let them break her or them. I absolutely love Drew and Courtney. Their chemistry is so super hot and over the top. They are such good friends that it makes their relationship work that much more. Drew is protective over the people he loves and cares about. And, Courtney will do anything for the people she loves. We got more of Travis, Viola, Logan and Kayla. Their interactions had me lol every time. And, umm can we talk about Courtney's brothers... They need to have their stories told. I'm just saying. Kennedy Fox are fantastic and I can not wait to get Logan and Kayla's story next!!
