The Checkmate Duet by Kennedy Fox


This is War – New Adult – ★★★★ – Goodreads  – AmazoniBooksB&N

I saw this book around a lot before I got it . Travis king sounded completely arrogant, cocky, and like a complete asshole. Travis King also sound like someone I wanted to meet because I have an addiction to these types of characters!

This book in one sentence: The best love/hate relationship in a book that I’ve seen in a while!

I really liked this story and it was interesting from the start! The love/hate relationship between Viola and Travis kept me hooked throughout and I wasn’t able to put it down easily!

We meet Viola and I immediately liked her! She was funny, down to earth, and was a very likable character! She’s not only beautiful but she was smart as well and wasn’t hesitant to give Travis attitude. Travis was everything I’d thought he would be and I wasn’t disappointed with him! I wasn’t too fond of him at first, but he grew on me as I continued to read! Their chemistry though was through the roof and the hotness of this book was off the charts!

I heard a lot about this book before I dove into it, and I still wasn’t ready! The ending of this book left me with my mouth hanging out and my head dizzy! I haven’t been hit this hard in a while and best believe I’m DYING to find out what happens next!

This is Love – ★★★★☆ – GoodreadsAmazoniBooksB&N

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of This is Love so luckily I didn’t have to wait too long after finishing This is War because that ending was incredibly killer! This one was just as sexy and just as fun as the first one!

The relationship between Viola and Travis is so fun to read! This book, like the first one, is one of those that you can pick up and read forever because you just won’t get sick of it. Their conversations were fun and they both spit sass to each other and with everything they did, and I mean everything, there was this hot, fiery passion behind it! The sexual tension between them was off the charts and it more than showed in the bedroom. Although, whether they were in the bedroom or not, everything was feisty between them! From the first book to this one, the characters grew a lot and they started to bring the best out of each other!

I love this story so much though because I was constantly on my toes with it! Every time that I thought something would happen, I was surprised by the actions of characters! I like my books to take my by storm and this one did just that! The first book set the stage, but this one kept the fire! There were so many moments that made me smile and sometime down the line I’ll plan to reread this series because I liked it so much!

In the end, this may have been a game, but I think it’s safe to say that we as the readers won this one! A+
