Drew Fisher is the type of guy every girl wants. Noble police officer by day, charming prince by night. He has no idea the effect he has on women, especially me—his little sister’s best friend. I’m the blonde Southern belle who lives up to the cliché, except I have my own quirks. I’m smart as a whip, can change my own oil, and recite The Pledge of Allegiance backward, but he doesn’t see that girl. It’d be easier to forget him if he wasn’t my roommate and if the first thing I saw in the morning wasn't his shirtless body covered in tattoos. I’ve crushed on him since the day we met, but he’s made it perfectly clear where we stand. Just friends. I know I need to move on and accept that his feelings will never be mutual, but every day he smiles at me, I’m left dreaming of what if. He has girl issues, and I’ve got a crush I can’t deny. We’re friends, but I want more. One drunken hookup leaves us with much more than a platonic friendship. Pretending it never happened proves to be more difficult than anticipated. A crazy ex-girlfriend, a dangerous war of stolen glances, and passionate kisses leads to the most reckless battle yet. I won’t be a pawn in his game, but I’ll play by his rules if it will show him I’m the one worth breaking them for. Checkmate, Prince Charming.

Checkmate: This is Reckless was a really enjoyable, fun, and sexy read. If you're a fan of friends-to-lovers romance, these books are a must-read! 

Checkmate: This is Reckless follows Drew and Courtney, two characters who are both roommates and best friends. They both met through Drew's sister, Viola, and for the past two years have been living together just as roommates. Courtney has had a huge crush on Drew ever since they met years ago - he's charming, sexy, and downright irresistible but Drew is still dating his on again and off again girlfriend Mia who will do anything to make sure he doesn't leave. Throughout the story, Drew starts to finally notice the attraction he has for Courtney and as things start to get heated, Courtney's sexy cop fantasies might just become a reality..

Kennedy Fox is at it again with making their readers swoon left and right! This time they're taking us on a wild ride with Courtney and Drew, two characters who are introduced in the first two books of the series. Fox never fails to make me smile when I'm reading (more like devouring since I couldn't put this one down for anything!) their works and this time it was no different. From laugh-out-loud moments, to sizzling hot scenes that are sure to make you blush, This is Reckless was giving me all the feels and I was loving every moment of it!

With our heroine, Courtney, I absolutely adored her! She was everything I love in a character. She was feisty, funny, didn't hold anything back, and she was loyal to the people she loved and cared for. Drew on the other hand was more of an easy going guy, but with a perfect touch of confidence and charm to him that I loved about him. Their relationship was fun to watch as the story progressed, from friends and roommates to instant attraction and even a few sexy moments throughout the book. Everything was just fine and dandy however, until that cliffhanger! I don't think I've ever been this frustrated before with a book's ending but this one takes the cake! I NEED MOREEE!

Overall, Checkmate: This is Reckless was a really enjoyable, fun, and sexy read. If you're a fan of friends-to-lovers romance, these books are a must-read!
