REVIEW – CHECKMATE: THIS IS LOVE (The Checkmate Duet #2) by Kennedy Fox



Viola Fisher is the epitome of perfection.
She despises my one-night stands and mocks my less-than-classy habits.
She’s smart, beautiful, and too good to be true.
And I want her.

If she were anyone else, I’d have made my move years ago, but considering she’s my best friend’s little sister, she’s always been off-limits. Not to mention how much she loathes my very existence.

Hating me is her religion, but needing her is mine. Her sexy curves and filthy smart mouth make me want her even more, and I’m more determined than ever to change her mind.

I’ll prove I’m done playing games.
But until then, we’ll continue to play by her rules.
Viola Fisher may have won the battle, but the war isn’t over yet.

Checkmate, princess.

4.5 Travis King Was Always Meant To Be Mine Stars
(ARC provided by authors)


Travis King & Viola Fisher had a complicated relationship in the last book. They grew up best friends & have loved each other since they were children, but a misunderstanding tore them apart. They had serious sexual tension & enjoyed flinging insults while Viola spent her spring break living with Travis & her brother Drew. Passion ignited and they shared some seriously hot hate sex that eventually turned into more. Then Travis was put in a questionable position & Viola was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt & not jump to conclusions. If they are going to be together, Viola has to learn to trust Travis & believe he’s no longer the manwhore he once was.

Travis is done playing games. Viola is the girl of his dreams, & he wants a future with her. He’ll do whatever it takes to make sure he doesn’t ever lose her again. He’s all in & ready to prove himself to the woman he loves. He doesn’t want anyone else & makes his feelings clear to Viola.


-Travis is my drug, and when I’m getting my fix, it’s hard to concentrate on anything at all.

-Viola Fisher has always been mine, and finally being together is the endgame.

-When she looks into my eyes I know there’s no other woman in the world that can make me feel this way.

-“Viola owns my heart, and I’m pretty sure she always has.”

I loved this series so much! This couple started out loathing the sight of each other to totally being obsessed with one another. Since Viola is Travis’s best friends little sister, she’s always been off limits. They struggle with going public about being a couple, & Travis is seriously swoony in this book. The playboy willingly surrenders his heart & ego and falls deeply in love. I can’t wait for Drew & Courtney’s book next!
