Title: Checkmate: This Is Love

Series: Checkmate Duet #2

Author: Kennedy Fox

Genre: Enemies to Lovers Romance

Release Date: December 13



The anticipated conclusion of The Checkmate Duet from a secret duo of bestselling authors! Checkmate: This is War is an enemies to lovers romance that will have you crying with laughter one moment and screaming in frustration the next… but you’ll be begging to play the game with The King.

Game on.


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 true.

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.

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

**This is Love is book in the Checkmate Duet. You must read This is War first.**

TIL Teaser 5



If you read the first book in this series, This Is War, then you will be pleasantly surprised by this book.  Because they are like complete opposites in how Travis and Viola interact with one another.

Travis is determined to prove himself to Viola.  That she can trust him.  That she’s it for him.  And Viola wants that – has always truly wanted that.  But can these truly make it work with everything that has happened over the years??  And what about Drew – what will be say – if he finds out about these two??

I love how these two authors allowed things to develop in this story.  Everything is natural and flows like it should.  Travis and Viola slowly move their relationship along all the while keeping it from Drew until it’s a good time to tell him.

Another huge big deal is that neither Travis or Viola give up their dreams just because they are finally figuring out things between them.  Everything that happens in this book is very natural, minus Mia and her outrageous antics.  And it’s her antics that causes some issues between everyone.

This Is Love plays out beautifully.  These two amazing authors have won me over with these characters.  The interactions between all of them is amazing (except Mia – she needs a hug around her neck with my hands).

If you’re looking for a series where you can fall in love with all the characters after you’ve berated a few of them for being idiots, then this is the series for you!
