Introducing book 1 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of bestselling authors! 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 sisters best friend. Im 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.**

It's finally time for Courtney and Drew to fight for their Happily Ever After!
We remember both from the first two books. You don't have to read those books before reading this, BUT I would definitely suggest you do - we see A LOT of both of them in there!

Ever since Travis & Viola have moved in together, Drew and Courtney now share their old apartment. And it's been going pretty good. They're very good friends. Friends who hang out to watch horror flicks and go out for drinks et cetera. But while Drew is always on-again / off-again with that idiot bi*ch Mia, poor Courtney has been in lust/love with Drew since the first time she saw him three years ago.

But what happens when one drunken wedding celebration ends up with both of them waking up naked in Drew's bed?? Can they go back to being besties? Can there be a real relationship? Will Courtney only be a rebound? And what will Mia say/do about it???

What will happen to Courtney & Drew?
Will there be a HEA? Or a huge Cliffy???


Finally back in Sacramento with our four darlings!
We have lots of Travis and Mrs. Travis in here too!☺♥

Drew and Mia. Ugh that Mia bi*ch! We hated her in the first two books and we still hate her now! And poor Drew doesn't see it. He loves her and wants a HEA for them. But Mia is such a ...grrrr. Courtney sees it of course, but Drew won't listen. Until he does one day.... Until he finally sees what's been in front of him all this time. Gorgeous southern beauty Courtney.

But of course this wouldn't be a two-book-series if everything was all insta-happy-endish for those two.  (P.S. THAT ENDING!!! JEEEZ!!!)

We have LOTS of stuff to overcome. Lots of stuff in the form of Mia.
But we enjoy every funny, erotic, adorable and frustrating moment of that journey!!!!!

#CHECKMATE: This is Reckless was another amazing book in this series! Funny, adorable, verrry sexy, frustrating, sad, moving! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Drew - this one is MINE!!!☺

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. And I kind of hated how Courtney always ran away when she saw Mia with Drew. Instead of confronting and fighting for her guy!

Can't wait to see what book #2 will have in store for us!!!!! GIMMMMMEEE!!!!

ARC received for an honest review

Yes! We have had #TeamTraviola in the first duet, now it is time for Courtney and Drew to come to the front of the stage.

We met both our lovelies in the first duet, and now that Travis and Viola have found their HEA, it is time for the fun and games with our new leading man and lady.

I have adored Courtney's not so hidden love/lust for Drew.  She has always been very vocal about her adoration of the hot cop Drew.  And her dislike of Drew's on again off again girlfriend Mia - but her dislike is very much warranted, she is such a b!tch, and as much as I wanted to slap her in the first duet, now I am in a full on hatred for the woman.

Drew is just... le sigh.  He is the perfect best friend for our southern gal Courtney, but man I need him to open his eyes, wake up and smell the coffee, all those things to make him come to his stupid man senses.

There is plenty of fun and laughter and UST between our lovelies, and lots of buildup.  But it wouldn't be a very good duet if everything was settled in the first part now, would it?

This is Reckless is sweet and funny and sexy and cute and all those things.  Now, while you are off to Amazon to read this one, I am on the hunt for a #HotCop
