Product description

Product Description

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.**

The KF duo are at it again - and they're not messing around!

Hooly Dooly Batman, this book packs a punch. I'm tempted to say I loved it more than Checkmate: This Is War... that's how much I loved reading the first part of this duet.

I always knew I was going to love every single thing about a book with Courtney Bishop, coz she's everything I love in a book heroine.
She's smart, sassy, strong & unapologetic & let's face it - if anyone was going to pull Drew Fisher's head outta the fog he's been living in, it was going to be her.

Of course, nothing is ever that easy... and so let the games begin.

A well paced rollercoaster ride of highs, lows, frustrations, disappointments, laughs and tears follow us through Drewtney's story & you'll find yourself experiencing all the emotions at one point or another - including a very strong emotion to slap the living **** outta someone who deserves it very much. Like very, very much!

Naturally, it wouldn't be the first book in a KF duet it the ending didn't leave you saying a combination of any or all of these phrases: WTF?, NFW!, STFU, DMD!

Can't wait for book two.
I know for a fact I'm not the only one hoping Karma shows up in a BIG WAY - and if she's a southern blonde wearing cowboy boots... well, that's all the better for kicking *** with!

Yes! We have had #TeamTraviola in the first duet, now it is time for Courtney and Drew to come to the front of the stage

We met both our lovelies in the first duet, and now that Travis and Viola have found their HEA, it is time for the fun and games with our new leading man and lady.

I have adored Courtney's not so hidden love/lust for Drew. She has always been very vocal about her adoration of the hot cop Drew. And her dislike of Drew's on again off again girlfriend Mia - but her dislike is very much warranted, she is such a b!tch, and as much as I wanted to slap her in the first duet, now I am in a full on hatred for the woman.

Drew is just... le sigh. He is the perfect best friend for our southern gal Courtney, but man I need him to open his eyes, wake up and smell the coffee, all those things to make him come to his stupid man senses.

There is plenty of fun and laughter and UST between our lovelies, and lots of buildup. But it wouldn't be a very good duet if everything was settled in the first part now, would it?

This is Reckless is sweet and funny and sexy and cute and all those things. Now, while you are off to Amazon to read this one, I am on the hunt for a #HotCop

If you read Checkmate: This is War & This is Love, then you are already familiar with Travis and Viola...this story is not about them. It is a story about Viola's bestie, Courtney, and her sexy older cop brother, Drew. Courtney has been head over heels in love with Drew since she first met him, and she was in no way secretive about it either. However, there was a huge problem...his pain in the @ss girlfriend, Mia. Drew had his head shoved so far up Mia's skirt that he NEVER saw just how evil and manipulative she really was. That was until one day when he FINALLY saw through Mia's B.S. and was able to see just how beautiful and sweet Courtney had been all along.
Mia was just so used to playing cat and mouse with Drew's heart that she not once realized that at some point he'd see through the fog and see her for who she really was. It just so happened that as he started to see Mia more clearly, he also began to see just how well he meshed with Courtney on so many levels and how amazingly beautiful she was inside and out.
Courtney is definitely someone I'd want to be friends with in real life. She's just fun loving and adventurous and a really sweet girl. And Drew...HOT COP...can you see where I'm going with his handcuffs? 👀 He is just loyal, blunt, protective and everything a girl would want in a boyfriend.
Once Courtney and Drew became a couple they were a solid #TeamDrewtney...need I say more? I knew a twist was going to come at us because love isn't always easy, what I did not foresee was the way it happened. OMG...when I finished the book I wanted to yell, "WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING???" at those two...Kennedy Fox! Let's hope I recover with the next book. You DEFINITELY want to grab this book and read it!
