Review – Checkmate : This Is Love by Kennedy Fox 

The King has returned! Someone please hold me, fan me and feed me all kinds of sweet stuff. Travis King has my heart pounding, pulse soaring and my stomach fluttering. This man, got even cockier, even hotter and even more desirable than the first time I met him. How you ask?! I know….Hard to believe right? How can he possibly be better than book one? Welp, take my word for it because he was! Way better. Kennedy Fox wrote him SUPERBLY!


Speaking of Kennedy Fox, can I just say I have no idea who these authors are separately but my gosh…. Together they are ASTOUNDING. Reading their words is like taking a breath of fresh air. Simple, uplifting and satisfying. Everything about this novel was FLAWLESS. From the continued growth of the characters to the blistering connection to the beautiful love story that resulted. FLAW-LESS!


Travis & Viola aka team Traviola which I’m on, TOTALLY. Are a match made in enemy heaven. This book brought us a huge development in their relationship but still, they had that SPARK. That FIRE. That downright intense, passionate, hate filled LUST that we first saw in book 1. Only this time, all of it was balanced perfectly with the breathtaking LOVE that develops. 

I guess you’re all wanting to know if book two also packs the same scorching heat as book one? Well I can happily tell you that it does. And it’s MAGNIFIED. Gaming never looked or sounded SO FREAKING HOT before. *reaches for a fan* SO yeah… BOILING HOT. LITERALLY MELTING! 


I was ALL IN with this story, this couple. Everything. From beginning to end they had me. Devoted. Obsessed. Consumed. 

I found myself in such a hurry to reach the end but I also never wanted it to stop. Books that evoke so much passion and emotion are THE BEST. Undoubtedly. And this, is one of the BEST!


Kennedy Fox have once again made their move and what a move it was. Checkmate- This is Love, IS love, passion, heat, intensity, power.  And above all else MAGNIFICENT. 

I’ll keep reading (and counting) as long as you two keep writing….

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.
