Introducing book 2 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of romance authors who teamed up under the USA Today Bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox! 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?

Courtney Bishop is as sugary sweet as her famous blueberry muffins.
Southern belle at heart, Cali girl by choice.
She barged into my life and easily became my best friend.
All was great as roommates and just friends, but then I fell for the girl who could chop firewood, deliver baby calves, and bail hay without breaking a sweat.
She's the perfect mixture of sugar and spice, and I
 love her.

Being more than friends and trying to build our future isn't as easy as it sounds.
Moving forward and creating memories is all I want for us, but when the past continues to come back and haunt me, I'm not so sure she'll stay for the ride.

Loving her is easy, but losing her will break me. Burning passion combined with an undeniable chemistry constantly pushes and pulls us together. In the end, I'll prove we're worth the fight, even when the game is
 far from over.


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

**This is book 2 in the Checkmate Duet Series--a friends to lovers romance. You must read book 1, Checkmate: This is Reckless first. 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.**


FINALLY book #2 in Courtney and Drew's story!
Remember that horrible ending in book 1??? Jeez!!!
Book 2 starts right where we left poor Drew with Mia in that Vegas Hotel room!

Mia seems to have lost her mind. We have to get a restraining order - which, of course, doesn't help much when you're dealing with a crazy stalker person!

We have LOTS of Mia-messes and excitements and dogs to survive until Drew and Courtney can ride off into their happily ever after sunset!

What will happen to Courtney & Drew?
Will there finally be a HEA?


Finally back in Sacramento with our darlings
We again have lots of Travis and Viola in here too! And also Logan and Kayla - who are going to be the main people in the next 2 books! ☺ And then there are Courtney's many brothers - there are LOTs of stories left to be told in this series!!! At least I hope they'll be told!

I really enjoyed reading this final book in Drew & Courtney's story!
We were left hanging soooo horribly in that first book! Oy!!!
I wanted to throw Mia out of the nearest window. And it's not getting better anytime soon!
That woman is crayyyy-zeeeeee!

Great book. Lots of excitement and suspense and frustrations and some verrrry SEXY times!

#CHECKMATE: This is EFFORTLESS was the perfect ending to Court & Drew's lovestory! Exciting, adorable, erotic, 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 not really. Just sometimes the writing is not really my thing. But that's my problem. I can't really explain it. Some expressions or words just seem wrong to me. Wrong words in the wrong place. No idea. I'm weird!
Also the moment right at the beginning where Drew doesn't tell Courtney the whole truth, and we know it's going to come back to haunt him. Stupid boy - but also slightly stupid, unimaginative story-writing. Why write such a weird unnecessary drama thing?? There's enough drama with Mia without that Oh-So-Surprising 'lie'. BUT also - it wasn't as bad as it could've been - Courtney doesn't scare easily!

Can't wait to see what Logan will have to tell us in the next book!

ARC received for an honest review

#TeamDrewtney is back!

I am  not going to lie, I have terrible bookzheimer's and read so much that I had forgotten what had happened in book one - but it didn't take long for me to remember what was going on one I started This Is Effortless.

Holy crapballs is all I can say about this book.  There was so much going on at the end of book 1, and it all carried over into book 2.  I don't want to give too much away as I feel that this is a book you need to just dive head first into, but I will tell you that it was action packed from the first word to the last.

Lots of Mia-mayhem, dog-gone antics along with schmexy times. I will say though that there were some times that I wanted to slap some sense into Drew for a couple of things, but I got over that pretty quickly.

Mia on the other hand - there was not one thing at all that I liked about her, and I will say that I feel that she got everything she deserved.

I loved meeting more of Courtney's family - those brothers of hers are a lot of fun, and I am sure there are plenty of stories there for us.

We are also setup for the next duet in the series, with Kayla and the mysterious Logan.  Can't wait to dive in to their story!
