Publisher Description

The anticipated conclusion of The Checkmate Duet from a secret duo of bestselling authors! Checkmate: This is Love is an enemies to lovers romance that will have you crying with laughter one moment and screaming in frustration the next... but you'll be begging to play the game with The King. 

Game on.



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.

*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*

**This is Love is book in the Checkmate Duet. You must read This is War first.**

Perfect Conclusion!

Gah! I was anxiously waiting to get to this book after that cliffhanger from book 1!! This was the perfect conclusion for this duet. At first I was expecting, Viola to let her insecurities about Travis overrun her emotions after finding out about the accident and that he wasn’t alone. I was glad they were able to communicate first and start to develop trust in their new relationship. I know it killed her (me too, low key) not to know what exactly happened that night of the accident, but she decided to take a leap of faith and trust in Travis. I loved the chemistry between Travis and Viola. Kennedy Fox made you fall and root for Travis and Viola in this book. They finally fought for love and even though they did have a few challenges to face, they were able to overcome them at the end. As a potter-head myself, I enjoyed all the Harry Potter references! I think my new favorite character was Courtney! I am super excited to hear Courtney and Drew’s story in this series. Again, Lia Langola did an amazing job as the narrator. She got all the emotions for each character perfectly.

I have never been much of a reader but thanks to TikTok I got an itch to read and the checkmate series was recommended. I haven’t finished a book since I was in high school. I finished checkmate this is war and checkmate this is love in TWO DAYS! I couldn’t put it down. I love Travis and Viola and their story. Moving on to the next checkmate book!
