The anticipated conclusion of The Checkmate Duet from a secret duo of bestselling authors! Checkmate: This is War 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.

This is Love picks up right after that ending in the first book of this duet. What a cliffhanger! I needed to know the answers as soon as possible! And we are not disappointed! We pick up right where we left off! Reading book 1 is necessary and totally worth it.

Viola Fisher and Travis King want each other; however, it is not that simple. Life never is. There are so many obstacles they need to overcome, the biggest being trust and communication. Travis has let Viola down so many times, but he has never had a reason to change, until now. Viola Fisher is his endgame, but how does he prove it to her?

I loved their interaction. These two were great together. Even as their feelings begin to grow for each other, they remain true to who they are. Their banter kept me laughing, and at times a bit frustrated, but you can see why they belong together.

There was drama added by some of their choices and actions, but new relationships always come with their own difficulties, but add in friends for years, then enemies, sex, best friend’s little sister, womanizer ways and you have a whole lot of complications!

This was a great friends (really frenemies) to lovers story that is full of romance and very sexy scenes, as the two main characters learn what they mean to each other and what they are willing to do to be together. Throw in a little drama, like needing to learn how to communicate with each other and how to trust each other and you have a great, fun read that keeps you drawn in to the very last page.
