This Is Reckless

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.**

WHAT?! WHAT?? That ending!!!! Excuse me?! Oh my god. I am so freaking out. Drew might just be my favorite character in this series so there is no doubt that I absolutely LOVED his book. But WOW, watch out for some characters missing some screws in this one. I mean, really? JESUS. THE PSYCHOS. if you've read books #1 & 2, you should know what I'm talking about. If you haven't *ahem* GO. my god. How will I get through this month now that I've read that ending. Kennedy Fox is quickly becoming one of my MUST READ/ONE CLICK authors!

***
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.

The wait is over and my heart is so happy that DREWTNEY is back! This is Effortless sucked me in from the very first page. Things left off exactly where they had so cruelly ended in the previous book and I can't say I am disappointed with the way the story went. Things got a bit darker and a hell of a lot more twisted! The plot twists actually made me gasp out loud and the chemistry between the characters never lessened as they fought to overcome all the obstacles trying to tear them apart. Really, I absolutely LOVE these two! Although the authors left it off at a point in which all I could think of was "HOW DARE YOU" (really, kennedy fox, how dare ypu?) I absolutely loved This Is Effortless and I CAN NOT WAIT for Logan and Kayla's book!
