Title: Checkmate: This is Effortless Series: Checkmate Duet Series (Drew & Courtney, #2) Author: Kennedy Fox Genre: Contemporary Romance Trope: Friends to Lovers Photographer & Designer: Sara Eirew Release Date: April 25, 2017
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.**

What an amazingly wild ride we take with the conclusion of Drew and Courtney's story. If you remember the cliffie at the end of This Is Reckless then you know there's something cray-cray going on!!!
I was totally engulfed into this book. I started it literally just sank into the words Kennedy Fox has given us. I loved everything about how much Drew and Courtney love each other, how they show that love for each other and how they will do anything they can to protect that love from the ever crazy Mia Montgomery.
Thank you Kennedy Fox for the privilege of reading this book prior to release
We also get a small look into how Courtney grew up in that small town in Texas with her four older brothers and a family that loves no matter what comes their way. The sassiness that is Courtney had me rolling sometimes. She just lets Drew know what or how she feels and he just rolls with it. This comes in particularly handy when they're in the throes of some steam up the sheets or shower sex. These two have no problem keeping it playful at times but also know when it's time to take it slow and easy and really make love.
There's also some new four legged friends in their life thanks to Kayla the puppy pusher...and oh how I love this girl...but more on that later. As Drew and Courtney begin the road to their forever, that pesky Mia keeps getting in the way. And there were a few instances while reading this book that I literally yelled out loud "What the ever loving F?!!!! There are some twists and turns in this one that'll have you guessing and gasping when it all comes about.
One of the many things that made me love these two together is that they have really progressed in their relationship, from roommates, to best friends, to lovers, to do I dare say it, soul mates....
Oh Drew you really know how to make me swoon. This is absolutely a perfect end to this Duet. We get everything we've come to expect from these authors AND we're getting the setup for the next Duet and boy it's gonna be good!!!!
