Introducing book 1 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of romance authors under the USA Today bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox!
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.**
Drew Fisher is Viola’s brother and Travis’ best friend. Their story was the Checkmate Duet Series. Courtney is Viola’s best friend and Drew’s roommate. Ok, so now that all the chess pieces are in place, what’s going on? Drew has been off and on with a she-witch named Mia Montgomery.
She’s the classic tall, skinny dark-haired goddess who thinks she rules the world and everyone in it.
She is a lying, manipulative cheater that for some reason, Drew cannot resist. Their last break up has lasted a few weeks and Courtney is hoping that her best friend is finally ready to move on…Not so fast there Courtney…
Too bad Drew Fisher is blind as a fucking bat.
What Drew doesn’t know is that Courtney is secretly in love with him. Has been for years. But she also knows that until he gets over Mia, she will never have a chance. I have to admit that Drew wore on my nerves something fierce. This guy seems to have so much going for him and yet Mia crooks her little finger, shakes her ass in his face and he caves. Over and over. No matter how many times she pulls her drama scenes, humiliates him, and walks all over him, he takes her back.
Mia Montgomery is the only woman I’ve ever truly loved. I know our relationship hasn’t been perfect over the last few years, but working for it makes the good times that much sweeter.
But things change as Travis and Viola’s wedding approaches. Is Drew finally seeing what is in front of his face? Obviously, this is a duet, as in two, as in cliffhanger. So when you read the last paragraph of the last page and you find your jaw hanging open, don’t say I didn’t’ warn you!
For the first time in my life, I’m truly happy in a relationship.
