Title: Checkmate: This is Reckless

Series: Checkmate Duet Series #1

Author: Kennedy Fox

Genre: Friends to Lovers Romance

Release Date: February 28


This is the story of a couple
Two roommates who ultimately became lovers
He tread lightly in his admiration for another
And even so her feelings remained undercover.

Still passion burned brightly between them
With the fierceness of the sun
She ran hot and the he seemed cold
But their journey had only begun.

Sexy times can render one undone
But it’s the heart that ultimately rings true
What does one do when wrapped up in love?
And the other remains confused?

These two anonymous writers owned me
I can’t wait to see what Kennedy Fox does next
Travis and Viola brought down the house
But Drew and Courtney tore me UP with their sex.

These authors purchased real-estate in my soul
Their writing had me ascending
That’s why I’m highly recommending Reckless
In spite of that horribly cruel ending!! 😉😉

So until we meet Courtney and Drew again
I wonder if they will survive what lies ahead
Does the tapestry that they worked so hard to weave
Hang on by only a thread?

This couple’s love seems strong
At times it appeared truly wreck-less
Or is their relationship simply a facade
That only *seems* Reckless?

Baited breath consumes me
Because there’s so much more of this story to explore
I know these authors won’t disappoint
And this Naughty Girl is eagerly awaiting more.

So bring the pain Kennedy Fox!!!
After all that these characters have been through
I remain in love with the Checkmate series
And I blow kisses from me, to you.

Overall: 5/5 Reckless, Hopeful Stars!!

Heat: Call the law because Drew in his officer’s uniform is packing the heat!

Introducing book 1 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of bestselling authors! 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.**
