The whole gang is back! Yes…including Drew’s evil on again off again girlfriend, Mia.
“Mean Girls? Ironic since you’re sitting next to the real life Regina George.”
This is honestly going to be on of the most difficult books for me to review. So, let’s start with some things that I feel you need to know…
This is friends to lovers, a best friends brother and roommates to lovers romance. This is a part of a duet, so yes that means you will have a cliffhanger.
I personally enjoyed Drew’s and Courtney’s story much more than I did the first set of the duets, but I’m more of a lover than a fighter, so that makes sense to me.
Drew is loyal to a fault and head strong and doesn’t see what is right in front of him.
Courtney does everything she can to get Drew to notice her without throwing herself at him.
This book has twists and turns and you will be rooting for Courtney, I just love this girl and as a fellow Texan I have bonded with her. I want her to get what she deserves and she deserves the best. I laughed and I got angry and frustrated and a lot a bit turned on reading this book.
Be a little reckless and grab this book today!
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?
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.*
