Review: Checkmate: This Is Love by Kennedy Fox

5 Stars!

Dear lord… where to start? This Is War left me with such a book hangover, I could not wait for This Is Love. I will say I was honestly surprised by the turns this book took, but pleasantly so. Where I expected sparks and more hate, there were different sparks and passion. Where I expected lovey-dovey sap, there was sarcasm and heat. Where I expect insecurities and an eye roll, there was strength and loyalty. This book done a marvelous job of keeping it real while also keeping the hot factor set to 10 the whole time. This story is believable, its the type you want to be  a part of even if you’re not the main character. Travis is the perfect combination of sexy, sarcastic, cocky bad boy and sweet, loving, passionate man, without if being unrealistically nauseating. Viola is a refreshing combination of sexy nerd without the cliche, sassy and strong without the envy, and fiercely passionate and independent without being clingy or standoffish. This book sucks you and doesn’t spit you out. It still has me anxiously awaiting book 3. Basically, well done ladies. This book is everything I wanted and more.
