Author: Kennedy Fox
Title: This is Reckless (Drew and Courtney Book #1, Checkmate Series Book #3)
Genre: Romance, over 18 due to some scenes being mature in nature
I could not wait to get my hands on this book, mainly because if you read Travis and Viola’s books then you have already been exposed to the big love and dirty things Courtney wanted to do to Drew.
Courtney is your larger than life, biggest heart, perfect best friend to Drew. Of course being from the South, I automatically love reading any story that even remotely mentions Texas, Louisiana or Mississippi (the higher the hair, the closer to God is a 100% true statement). Drew is a police officer that is stuck, and I mean STUCK in the mud with his craptastic girlfriend Mia and doesn’t realize the rare gem that is right in front of his face. From the moment Courtney saw him, she knew she had to have him, but she bid her time until it was right. And man was it the right time.
I really hate Mia’s character (Drew’s ex/current/who knows what they are girlfriend). And hate is a strong word, but she just annoys me. I really dislike the girl that doesn’t want him, but doesn’t want anyone to have him. Those types are the worst and I think they are the most selfish of all. I usually don’t get to annoyed with a character, but she just bugged me. If I knew her in real life, I would probably have given her a shoulder check, or two.
I thought Kennedy Fox did a phenomenal job keeping you up to date on Travis and Viola’s life but also creating a completely separate story that you just fall in love with. Even though we have all read a friend to lover book before, I really felt this story was refreshing and I was almost giddy at points when their romance was just beginning. I have been dying for this to happen since book 1 so it was a long time coming.
This book is so much fun, and again I was completely left with my mouth hanging open at the end of the book. So I will be adding Drew and Courtney’s second book to my collection pretty soon because I can’t wait to see where this story takes me next.
I give this book a 5 star roasting and definitely recommend you go out and get it, after you finish Viola and Travis books first! It’s not completely necessary to read in order, but will make more sense if you do.
