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.

Checkmate, sweetheart.

*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.**

Friends to lovers ROMANCE PERFECTION!

Every word, every page, every chapter was savored like it was the very last blueberry muffin on this planet. I wanted to take my time with it, and at the same time, devour it as fast as humanely possible. Courtney and Drew’s beautiful and exhilarating conclusion comes to a head and leaves me wanting SO MUCH MORE! 

“I don’t believe in soul mates, but if I did, there’d be no doubt in my mind you’d be mine.”

An ABSOLUTE DELIGHT to read, THIS IS EFFORTLESS had me smitten cover to cover! I can’t seem to get enough of these two unforgettable characters! This friends-to-lovers romance had me giggling, shouting, swooning, and blushing with every turn of the page. With sizzling sex scenes and a slew of suspenseful and unforgettable moments, the conclusion to Drew and Courtney’s love story had me falling head over heels ALL OVER AGAIN! 

“Loving you has and will always be effortless.”

It’s astounding how deep their love has grown for one another. It’s enchanting, beautiful, and just lovely. If you are a desperate seeker of happily ever afters, then this series is the one for you. It has so many feel-good moments that you won’t be able to keep the smile off of your faces. It was surprising how suspenseful this one was. It added another element to this already perfect romance. The writing duo that is Kennedy Fox, has blown me away with every book they release! It’s like they came out of nowhere and took the genre to another level. I am so grateful that I’ve found another writing duo that knows just what I like in my romances. Their brand of romance will pull you out of any funk, and their characters will enamor and delight you. The writing is remarkable. Their ability to suck you in from page one is astounding. Everything about their style sets them apart from many in this genre and it seems like everything they write becomes a favorite of mine. 

If you enjoy irresistible characters, hilarious banter, and sizzling chemistry, THE CHECKMATE DUET is for you! It’s mouth-watering, addicting, and oh so SWOONY! If you are looking to get your friends-to-lovers fix on, well look no further. The buck stops here, and there will be no going back once theses amazing characters embed themselves in your hearts.
