Introducing book 2 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of romance authors who teamed up under the USA Today Bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox! This friends to lovers romance will have you swooning and laughing from the first to the last page! Are you ready to play the game?

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.**

 

 

thumbnail_review

Where do I even begin!? I binged the first 3 books last month and couldn’t stop myself. After being recommended and pushed to read these from several of my closest friends, I caved and FINALLY read them. About time right? Well, I’m obsessed and mad at myself for having waited until just last month to finally dive into these amazing books. I love everything about these 2 duos. I just can’t when it comes to these books. I literally “can’t even”. Because these are written in duos, this is not a standalone – book 1 HAS TO be read first before this one.

If you’re new to this series, be ready to meet Mia. Lord, help us all with that character… She has had a part in the storyline in the beginning and really makes her big appearance in this duology. Don’t worry, y’all don’t have to wait with the cliffhanger. Unless you’ve been with this series for at least a couple weeks, you’ve endured that cliffhanger. OH MAN!

These books are impossible to put down. Once you start, you do nothing, and I mean nothing until you hit that final page. Then wonder where the time went and where a real life Drew (or Travis) is…. Just me? I hope not. ;)

If you’re new to my reviews, I’m one who loves to gush. Especially when it’s books I love like these. I struggle to form coherent sentences and you can literally call me a fangirl. I fangirl hard when it comes to books especially when it’s ones I’m passionate about.

Seriously. Guys, if you have not read these books PLEASE go get This is War/This is Love and then we can talk… These books are MUST and the duo that is Kennedy Fox is amazing!!!!

I’m so beyond excited for the next duology. SO. EXCITED.

From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes the next seductive, unforgettable Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel…

Zachary Kennedy has never been known as a fighter, but he’ll never regret fighting for her…

 I’m Zee Kennedy.

Quiet. Reserved. Predictable.

When my brother died, everyone thought I was just the good guy who stepped up to take his place in the band.

 No one knew what I was hiding. The one thing I’ve been fighting for.

 For six years, I’ve never lost focus.

 Not until one chance encounter with Alexis Kensington.

 Now she’s become my greatest temptation.

I knew better than to touch her, but now that I’ve had a taste, I can’t get enough.

Her kiss becomes my air. Her body my salvation.

She needed a savior and somehow she became mine.

Taking her was a betrayal. But keeping her means risking everything.

One look at Alexis Kensington, and I know she’s worth the fight.

Will my past continue to keep me down or will I finally find the strength to pull myself up and Stand…

Release Blitz: The Player by K. Bromberg

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?

Review: Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

MMB banner 1

 

IMG_5273I met Bianca in an elevator.

 She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.

The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

 She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.

 Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn’t appreciate the simple things in life.

 So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn’t want it to end.

 I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

 I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.

I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.

I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.

 And she was falling for two men.

Only, both men were me.

And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.

 Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for what came after.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

MY REVIEW: 

AHH!!! A ONE-SITTING BOOK! I devoured this book! I couldn’t put it down for the life of me. I loved the first chapter, it hooked me immediately. It had me cracking up so bad that I was messaging friends talking about it and laughing! I loved Dex and Bianca. So many plot twists in the last few chapters! Especially when it got to the last 20% or so, I literally could not put the book down. I couldn’t break my attention away because I had to know what was going to happen.
Such a fun, yet crazy book. Highly recommend this book!!

Release Blitz: Checkmate Duet by Kennedy Fox

Title: Checkmate Boxed Set
Series: Checkmate Duet (Travis & Viola)
Titles Included: Checkmate: This is War & Checkmate: This is Love
Author: Kennedy Fox
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Trope: Enemies to Lovers
Photographer & Designer: Sara Eirew
Release Date: April 5, 2017

Travis King is the worst kind of asshole with good looks and enough confidence to last two lifetimes.
Viola Fisher is a goodie two shoes know-it-all who prefers fictional love stories over her own.
The only thing they have in common is their mutual hatred for each other.

She’s had a secret crush on him since she was ten but Travis has always made it very clear the feelings aren’t mutual. He’s cruel, crass and takes every opportunity to get under Viola’s skin. She’s smart, beautiful, and too good to be true. Hating him is her religion but needing her is his.

Although Viola loathes his very existence, against her better judgment she let him into her bed. Her sexy curves and filthy smart mouth make Travis want her even more and although she’s succumbed to his manwhore ways, she’s determined to not let that change a thing.

Too bad he has other plans.

Viola’s always been off-limits, but Travis is determined to keep crossing that line. She can try to push him away, but he always gets what he wants and he’ll do anything to prove he’s done playing games.

Until then, they’ll play by their own rules to see who will win the biggest battle yet—love or hate?

Checkmate.

*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*
