I couldn't put this one down! Travis King is a huge douchebag- there's no doubt of that. But he's also super smart, super sexy and extremely hilarious. Never mind the fact that try as he might, nobody comes close to his childhood best friend/ his princess.
I started this book at night and I couldn't put it down the rest of the day afterwards! On the train, in the car, at school, walking from class to class- I really loved it! Definitely looking forward to more books by this author.
Ah, Travis. Mr. King really grew on me in this one. 100% all about his girl and honestly- it was kinda hot. *shrug* I love a guy who loves and appreciates his girl. But man- THE PSYCHOS IN THESE BOOKS. Jesus, get rid of one and another one appears, amirite?
Kennedy Fox keeps the twists and turns coming in This Is Love and let's just say I was shocked, maybe a little stressed (and in need of some chocolate/alcohol- whatever came first) but it was SO WORTH IT.
The amount of book references in these books give me life. It's so full of humor but it's not obnoxious. It's the perfect amount of humor, sexiness, romance and drama. I am LOVING this series!
Travis and Viola will have you laughing out loud one minute and fanning yourself the next! Their smoking hot chemistry will melt your kindle and leave you wanting more! The secondary characters in This is War and This is Love, like Drew and Courtney, are just as fun and amazing, and there will even be a few people that you will LOVE to hate! Grab this set today!
Travis had his whole badboy image down solid; he had the tattoos, the parade of women, and the snarky, naughty mouth. He had a corporate office job at a marketing firm and he was determined to move up in the company but his extra curricular activities with the bosses daughter might make that a bit difficult. Travis lived with his best friend and Viola’s older brother, Drew. When Viola needs a place to crash for spring break Drew offers up his room while he’s away visiting his girlfriend. Travis and Viola can hardly stand each other, Drew’s positive he’ll come back to find Viola hiding Travis’ cold body. But while Drew is away all that anger between Travis and Viola sparks into something more.
Viola had some serious hang-ups where Travis was concerned and while they weren’t unfounded but she let’s them control their relationship for quite some time. Viola started to feel more confident in their relationship and then when the second book rolls around they stumble on some more problems. The way that Viola chooses to handle these problems just caused me to become more aggravated with her. The sex between her and Travis was hot, I’d definitely read more Kennedy Fox just for that, but the overall drama was a bit too drawn out in my opinion.
You know those books you keep seeing EVERYONE reading and you think to yourself "I should really read those." Yet, somehow they keep getting put off and moved down that never ending TBR pile? Well that was the Checkmate Duet for me. I decided while I was on vacation for spring break this year that it was time to bump this baby up my TBR and dive in! I started Checkmate: This is War on the last day of our trip.
You guys!!! Oh. Em. Gee. I devoured these books. I mean.... I COULDN'T STOP. I read on the plane, in the car, at the airport, when I was trying to fall asleep, on every lunch break when I was back at work, even while I was walking the dog. (I maaaay have accidentally tripped on the sidewalk a few times. Maybe.) Even that wasn't enough. I NEEDED more! I grabbed the audio so that I didn't have to take breaks from reading while getting ready for and driving to work, or doing chores around the house. Have you ever had a book consume you like that?
The first Checkmate Duet: Travis & Viola is an enemies to lovers romance and I found it so fun. Their witty banter, the pranks and the back and forth was perfect. This bind up of This is War and This is Love is probably the way to go, because the ending of the first book will leave you with sweaty palms and your jaw on the floor. I was SO happy that I didn't have to wait to find out what happened. It's a rough cliffy!
To summarize: Read these books. Don't wait! You won't regret it. If you love a good angsty read with a bit of humor and a lot of drama, you will love Travis and Viola's story. The sequel to second Checkmate Duet releases next week and I am so excited to start Drew and Courtney's story. I love this secret writing duo and am thankful to have finally picked up their books. I may have a legit obsession with Kennedy Fox now. So thanks to all those ladies that posted and talked about how amazing their books are. I hope these authors continue to share more stories with us!
