Checkmate: This is Effortless was indeed just effortless. Kennedy Fox finished Drew & Courtney’s duet better than I could have ever expected and hoped for. 

Everything in this second part was delivered with precision and ease. The flow and pace of the story was just perfect, it was fast enough to hook my attention. Slow enough to add mystery and suspense. Kennedy Fox left nothing uncovered, all my questions were answered and the best happy ending delivered. 

This is Effortless messed with all my emotions. I’m pretty sure I experience every single emotion possible. I got tummy sloshes, an elevated heart rate AND skin tingles. Sometimes ALL AT THE SAME TIME!! My feelings were well and truly dragged from me and laid bare for all to see when I got to the end. But I wouldn’t change a damn thing! It was the best feeling!

Drew & Courtney maintained their intense relationship. If anything, I only felt their connection blast through even stronger. They truly edged themselves under my skin and lit me up from the inside out.. Drew is FIYAH! Courtney is SASS! Together they are explosive. 

I’m head over heels for all things Kennedy Fox. I adore their passion that relays so easily through their words. I love the way they take their characters and raise them to the next level making them unforgettable. I love that their stories are kept fresh and are always addictive. 

Checkmate: This is Effortless is intense, passionate and oh so sexy! The perfect ending for Drewtney!

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.

Checkmate, sweetheart.

*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.**
