*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. Checkmate.
Kennedy Fox is a fab writing duo with their feisty female leads, bad boy hero's, and a romance so hot that it is bound to leave readers burned!
After seeing this series being talked about non-stop on both Instagram and Facebook from some of my blogging pals, I know I had to give the books a go and I am so happy I did! This was the perfect NA novel that I, without a doubt needed and I'm already craving more of these two characters! Kennedy Fox is a fab writing duo with their feisty female leads, bad boy hero's, and a romance so hot that it is bound to leave readers burned!
This is War is told between both Viola's and Travis, letting the reader get to see the story between both characters and learn more about them. Viola quickly became a favorite of mine as she was feisty, witty, and a not to mention, a huge book nerd. Travis on the other hand, took me a bit of time to like him as he was a bit of an asshole to begin with. Slowly but surely though, he charmed his way into my heart. But really...Talina King doesn't sound so bad! ;)
These two characters were definitely something else! The tension between the two was sizzling and I was just waiting for one of them to make the first move already. The banter between them was also another thing I loved, one would say something and the other would fire back something witty that had me either blushing or smiling, it was always those two! I absolutely adored these two characters and as I type this, I'm already half way through the next one!
Checkmate: This is War was honestly one of the best New Adult novels I've read in a long time. The second I put it down, I was ready to pick up the next one and devour it just as I did the first. This novel had everything I was looking for and more. If you are a fan of the enemies to lovers trope, this book is for you!
