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.

We're back with Viola & Travis.
We basically start where we left them....remember?
Viola just got a call that Travis is in the hospital - he was in an accident - but he wasn't alone in the car! Drew's ex Mia was naked in the backseat!!!
Off to the hospital we go, to get to the bottom of this whole mess.
What was Mia doing in that car with Travis?
We hear a little about that in the first chapter - Travis lets us know a bit about how he ends up with Mia. But of course we don't know everything yet! Mostly because he chooses to not tell us everything!

Once Travis is back home recuperating in bed, Viola is hired by her brother to take care of the patient!
Poor Drew btw. still doesn't know about them!

Now the only question is what the hell happened with Mia and can Travis be trusted when he says to trust him. ☺ He seems to want to be with her as a real couple, but can this manwhore really suddenly be in love and in a relationship with only one girl?
And what happens after college? Will Viola have to leave the city to find work somewhere else? And what about Travis and his horrible job situation?

What will happen to Viola & Travis?
Will there be a HEA?


Finally back with those two crazy kids!
And even though Travis is in bed and hurt pretty badly during the first part of the book, they still can't stop egging each other on! Adorable!
Lots of funny and sexy stuff happens.
But of course there's still that Mia thing and that not telling the whole truth about what happened thing.
And then there's also Drew, who still doesn't know about them, and who will probably kill Travis once he finds out ... bro-code and all that! ☺
Lots and lots of problems to overcome until we can get to our Happily Ever After!

#ThisIsLove was the perfect finale in the  Viola & Travis lovestory. Run to your nearest amazon to find out if and how Viola & Travis will finally fight themselves to their HEA

were there some things I didn't like? Hm yeah. Sometimes the writing is not really my thing. But that's my problem. I can't really explain it. The other thing.... and I feel like I write this in every 3rd review. This typical mid-book misunderstanding or the lie or the omission - or whatever drama an author comes up with. It happens here too. Just tell the whole truth at the beginning and this whole unnecessary drama could've been prevented. We would still love the book. Find some other, real drama. But not always those typical, unimaginative things! Especially when we know that they'll make up in the end!
BUT - I still really enjoyed their story and I can't wait to see what poor Drew will have to deal with in his own book!!!!

ARC received for an honest review

#TeamTraviola is baaaaa-accccck

You will need to have read Checkmate #1 This is War as book 2 carries on where the first book started.
We were cliffied at the end of book one, so it was great to get back with these crazy kids (lord, does that make me sound old?)

I loved that through it all, they kept true to themselves.  The banter between them is as funny and snarky as ever, but people, you need to know that lies or secret or lies of omission are going to give you grief.  Communicate people!

But at least they sorted stuff out without too much grief and drama.

I also loved Viola's best friend Courtney. The way she is with V's brother Drew is hilarious, I picture her like a girl in a cartoon, tongue rolling out her mouth and hearts in her eyes!

Drew - man at times I want to slap you across the back of the head for being so clueless.

But all this cluelessness leads into the next book in the series, so I should wait until then before an slapping happens!

This Is Love is a sweet and sexy conclusion to Travis and Viola's story, though I can't wait to see more of them in Drew's book!

Bring it Kennedy Fox, this girl is awaitin'
