Coming from a new duo of bestselling authors, The Checkmate Duet, an enemies to lovers romance!
Travis King is the worst kind of a**hole.
He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards.
He's cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes.
And I hate him.
It wouldn't matter so much if he were avoidable.But considering he's my older brother's best friend and roommate, I see him more than I'd ever want to.His sculpted abs and gorgeous eyes are wasted on such an arrogant man, which makes me hate him even more.
Even though I've had a crush on him since I was ten, the feelings weren't mutual and he's made that very clear.He's always loved getting under my skin and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed.
I've succumbed to his manw**re ways, but that doesn't change a thing.
Because the King is about to get played at his own game--and lose.Checkmate.

Checkmate: This is War is the first in the checkmate duet by author Kennedy Fox. It is an enemies to lovers story that is right up my alley. I was hooked from the very first moment I read the opening lines of the summary. I mean, come on, how could you not be? This book just screams a good time. I had so much fun reading it. Fans of bickering, fighting and URST galore will eat Checkmate: This is War right up. I cannot wait for the second half of the duet. My only complain is that I wish it was a trilogy or series instead of a duology. I want more more checkmate!
Checkmate this is war is told in dual narrative between Viola Fisher and Travis King, two childhood friends turned heated enemies. I don’t know what it says about me, but I just love this kind of dynamic in stories. I think it is because the rights and low blows just crack me up. I love to watch them rile each other up. (I know, I can’t be the only one who enjoys that!)Travis and Viola are each dynamos in their own regard, and watching them go head to head was pure magic. The cliffhanger is killer though, so be warned about that. (I think that is starting to become a requirement in duologies.)
Checkmate: This is war is written by Kennedy Fox, who is an author duo. And I have to say, I am in love with these two ladies and how their writing styles combine. I don’t know who they are…they are very hush hush about that (I am very good at keeping a secret Kennedy, you can trust me;) ) but I really love them together. Checkmate was everything I love in story- snappy dialogue, great characters that bring out heat and fire in the other one, bickering in an abundance and a romance that cannot be beat.
