My totally useless review of Checkmate: This is War and This is Love

Before you begin reading these reviews, know that you might feel as if your time has been wasted if you read to the bottom, but what the hell… I reviewed them, so I’m posting them!

This book took me a long to read and it’s no one’s fault but my own, well and the reviewer that spoiled the book for me! I was trying to find out how big of a cliffhanger there was, when stumbled across EXACTLY what the cliffhanger was. Well. Obvously, that put me off from reading it for a while. I hoped that reading other books inbetween would you make me forget… WRONG.

Even knowing precisly how this book would end, I still enjoyed it. I went with 4 stars on this because I knew the ending so it was kind of a chore to get to that, so this is no fault to the authors. It was very well written and highly entertaining. I loved the banter between Viola and Travis! I was team Traviola from the beginning!

“From being head over heels for him as a young girl to loathing him as a woman, Travis King needs to remember the golden rule – never admit defeat It was game on.”

The war they waged was great and was my favorite part of the story. They were heated and passionate, read this book, but avoid looking at reviews… well… you can read mine. Just beware that others have huge spoilers in them.

Travis King is the worst kind of a**hole.
He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards.
He’s cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes.
And I hate him.

It wouldn’t matter so much if he were avoidable.
But considering he’s my older brother’s best friend and roommate, I see him more than I’d ever want to.teaser-2
His sculpted abs and gorgeous eyes are wasted on such an arrogant man, which makes me hate him even more.

Even though I’ve had a crush on him since I was ten, the feelings weren’t mutual and he’s made that very clear.
He’s always loved getting under my skin and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed.
I’ve succumbed to his manw**re ways, but that doesn’t change a thing.

Because the King is about to get played at his own game–and lose.
Checkmate.

**Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.**

“My innocence is so f*ing tragic that Shakespeare could have written it.”

Yeah… I thought I had this book figured out, but I was pleasantly surprised when things didn’t play out quite as I anticipated. We get the answers to the questions that we are left with after the first book and it plays out just right. The conclusion to Travis and Viola’s story was lust induced and sex filled with family drama and an epic ending.

“Travis is my drug, and when I’m getting my fix, it’s hard to concentrate on anything at all, but I know I have to.”

I honestly, don’t know what else I can say about this book without you know.. spoiling it for others and since the first book was spoiled for me I really don’t want to do that to you. So, just go read it and attempt to write you own spoiler free review. I dare you.

Viola Fisher is the epitome of perfection.
She despises my one-night stands and mocks my less-than-classy habits.
She’s smart, beautiful, and too good to be teaser-3true.
And I want her.

If she were anyone else, I’d have made my move years ago, but considering she’s my best friend’s little sister, she’s always been off-limits. Not to mention how much she loathes my very existence.

Hating me is her religion, but needing her is mine. Her sexy curves and filthy smart mouth make me want her even more, and I’m more determined than ever to change her mind.

I’ll prove I’m done playing games.
But until then, we’ll continue to play by her rules.
Viola Fisher may have won the battle, but the war isn’t over yet.

Checkmate, princess.
