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.
This is book 1 in the Drew & Courtney duet and must be read first. Suggested for mature readers only.
it was decently good
i was excited to find out that courtney and drew got together, it was fun reading this but i felt like it was fast paced in the sense that it skipped forward quite a bit. would’ve liked a bit slower timeline but otherwise, decently good. however, i’m not running to purchase the next book immediately 🤷🏻♀️
It was okay
I admit even though it was a much slow burn erotic and highly dramatic story with the second couple of the CheckMate Series, yeah Drew and Courtney had their own share of highly intense sexual chemistry going on as well as ups and downs as becoming an couple romantically. At first I thought Drew was like an whipping man because he had this off again and on again toxic relationship with his ex-girlfriend, Mia?!?😬 It took a great deal of common sense to finally sink in that Mia is bat crap crazy and mentally unstable with her constant stalking of Drew and Courtney even though they were just best friends and roommates. Then after Travis and Viola’s wedding, there was that one night stand due to drinking too much liquor at the reception, from there things got heated up very slowly but steamy & shocking towards the end of book one of Drew and Courtney’s story?!?
