Kennedy Fox's Checkmate: This is Reckless ♖♡Review♡♖

Checkmate: This is Reckless
Drew & Courtney Duet, Book 1
Checkmate Series, Book 3
Released: February 28, 2017

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.

Loving a set of characters this much shouldn't be allowed. When I first met them in Checkmate: This is War and This is Love I knew they were going to be a fun read one day. Though this is a connected story to the aforementioned it is a complete standalone. Courtney made me laugh so hard through a lot of this book because she is so spunky and real. She handles herself like I would hope I would in a lot of instances, not all, but a lot. Drew has the sexy cop thing going on and I keep picturing that hot cop that circulated through Facebook before he signed up to model. You know the one. I don't blame Courtney at all for wanting to climb him like a jungle gym since the moment she met him. Drew seems to be more sensitive than most men yet can still be a total alpha when it is needed.

The writing is amazing and the book sucked me in to where I didn't want to set it down. This was book one of this stories duet so be prepared for a cliffhanger. But don't despair! The next part comes out very soon! You do not want to miss out on this story. It was amazing. If you read the first duet in the Checkmate series you know some of the players in this one and let me just say sparks fly. Some are passionate and some are wrathful. And the ending of this book will have you ready to scream! I will leave you guessing if it is a lusty one or not. This is a very highly recommended book!
