THIS IS RECKLESS-
After the crazy onslaught of feelings evoked with the previous duet (Traviola for short here, you know if you've read them), I really expected this to start with a bang but it didn't; I felt like this book started a bit slower than the others. Don't get me wrong, once the story picked up and Drew realized just what he was missing by being ignorant of ALL the signals Courtney gave him for years...things quickly got sexy and the plot was great. I absolutely LOVE how feisty and do-it-yourself Courtney is, she's a true tough southern gal and I adore her for it. You get so much more of that here, it really separates her character from Viola's which I was worried I'd have a hard time doing. Drew is protective, strong, smart and quick on his feet and the chemistry between the two is fantabulous! I enjoyed how the story progressed, and although I HATED her - Mia Montgomery really added an interesting and daunting aspect that keeps you on your toes as you grow to despise her and root for Courtney and Drew to get rid of her ass! The ending (mega cliffhanger) will have you BEGGING FOR MORE!
THIS IS BEAUTIFUL-
I couldn't believe the cliffhanger that Kennedy Fox left for us in THIS IS RECKLESS. If I hadn't of purchased the boxed set and just have been able to swipe to the next page, I probably would have overreacted and faked a heart attack or something. My heart was pounding in my chest and I felt every single emotion that Courtney was experiencing at the terror of what happened to them in Las Vegas. The author really wove the feelings of fear, right alongside passion and romance throughout this entire novel and I couldn't get enough of it. Courtney and Drew's relationship is tested over and over through this story, had it been me honestly I don't know if I would have stuck around. But EEK I am so glad that Courtney did because of course, it all turns out magical in the end and I loved every single second of their journey.
This leaves me #1. SO excited to read about the Bishop brothers in 2018, and #2. SUPER excited to dive into Logan and Kayla's story in the next duet. These books are a must people!
*This is Reckless*
Team Drewtney for the WIN! Kennedy Fox has done it again! Checkmate: This is Reckless is the perfect blend of friends to lovers romance, humor, emotion, and of course, page melting sexy times! This is the first book in Drew and Courtney's duet, so consider that your warning if you're not a fan of cliffhangers! We were introduced to these two in Travis & Viola's books, Checkmate: This is War and This is Love, but this duet can be read as a stand alone.
I loved watching Drew and Courtney blur the lines of their friendship. Courtney's feelings towards Drew are no secret and she definitely wins the most patient while pining for your best friend award. I will admit that there were times I was frustrated by Drew, but it was all worth it to see Drew finally open his eyes to his toxic relationship with Mia and see who was really there all along. Yes, there's some angst and drama, but there's also hilarious witty banter and smokin' hot chemistry.
All our favorite (and not so favorite) characters are back and a few new ones are introduced too. I definitely enjoyed getting to revisit with Travis and Viola and I'm really intrigued by Logan's story. I wouldn't mind one bit if he got his own story or if there was a spin off series featuring Courtney's brothers. Just saying ;) I cannot wait for book 2, Checkmate: This is Effortless, because that ending was a gut punch! I'm still reeling a bit from those last few paragraphs (seriously, oh hell no!!!), but I trust Kennedy Fox and so I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the ride! ;)
*This is Effortless*
I could not wait to get back to Drew and Courtney after the conclusion of This is Reckless to see how their story ends. Checkmate: This is Effortless was an emotional and action filled story that picks up right where book 1 left off. It is the second book in the Checkmate duet and is not a stand alone and should be read after This is Reckless.
Oh Deputy. I didn't think it was possible to love Drew more, but I was so wonderfully wrong. We've seen the cocky alpha cop and brother, but this time around he showed a more protective, vulnerable, and sweetness that left a goofy grin on my face for most of this book. Seriously, Drew and Courtney are friends to lovers gold. He's not perfect and may not always make the right decisions, but his heart is ALWAYS in the right place. I love that when he commits, he's all in.
Courtney needs to be real. I would love a BFF like her and she's one of my most favorite heroines ever. She's smart, sassy, funny, and incredibly loyal. I love that she nurtures her relationship with Drew just as much as her friendships with Viola and Kayla. #squadgoals for sure. She has some of the best dialogue too and Kennedy Fox never disappoints with their sexy and hilarious banter! I really love her quirky and loving family too and hope that this isn't the last we hear about them, especially Jackson and Evan.
Sorry this review is purposely vague, but I really don't want to ruin some of the amazing surprises and twists that the authors have thrown into Drew and Courtney's journey. Just rest assured that you will laugh, swoon, gasp, have a panic attack or two, and then feel all warm and fuzzy. Some things were a little over the top and the story stalled a bit in the middle for me, but I did enjoy the suspense and mystery in this book. Though this is the end of Drewtney's story, I know we will continue to get updates on them and Traviola. Speaking of Travis and Viola, their appearance in this book is awesome!! Travis and his super... yeah, you'll have to read the book ;) I can't wait to for Logan and Kayla's story next!
