#BookReview – Checkmate: This is War by Kennedy Fox



*An enemies to lovers romance*

Travis King is the worst kind of asshole.
He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards. 
He’s cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes. 
And I hate him.

It wouldn’t matter so much if he were avoidable. 

But considering he’s my older brother’s best friend and roommate, I see him more than I’d ever want to.

His sculpted abs and gorgeous eyes are a waste on such an egotistical man, which makes me hate him even more.

Even though I’ve had a crush on him since I was ten, the feelings weren’t mutual and he’s always made that very clear.

He’s always loved getting under my skin and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed. 

I’ve succumbed to his manwhore ways, but that doesn’t change a thing.

Because the King is about to get played at his own game—and lose.



There is a fine line between love and hate.  Viola Fisher and Travis King stratal that line. She thinks he’s a major asshole who is cruel, crass and taunts her as being a good girl who can’t let loose and be naughty.  I’ve had a crush on him since I was ten. I can’t avoid him he’s my brother best friend and roommate. I’m close with my brother and he seems to be always around. He is as sexy as hell but a complete arrogant tool. 
He thinks she’s the virgin type with a  smart dirty mouth. She’s sexy without a clue and she drives me insane. But I want her but a one night with her wouldn’t work. She’s my best friends little sister and she’s off limits.  
Spring break Viola stays at her brother’s apartment while he’s away visiting his girlfriend.  Viloa and Travis start playing a game with each other and they both declar war which leads to one night. Who will win the war?
I absolutely loved this book. I want book 2 now! This one ends with a cliffhanger and it leaves you scratching your head. I need to know what the hell happened and what’s next for these two. Its a fast paced book full of hot steamy forplay. These two declar war and the gloves come off and I love every minute of it. These two are hot for each other and it’s fun to see who will give in first! 
I loved this book and definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a hot steamy read that might make you a little excited reading it! Check this one out!
