"I’ll play by his rules if it will show him I’m the one worth breaking them for."


This book was fun with a capital 'F'. I don't always need to be swept up or blown away by an authors writing ability to fully enjoy my time with a book. Sometimes, I just need something to kick back and relax with and that's what Kennedy Fox did with their latest release. 'This is reckless' was an enjoyable romance loaded with sweet, sexy and a little bit of angst.

What's is all about?
This is the third book of the 'Check mate' series and book one of the second duet that this author duo have written. This story combines the themes of 'friends to lovers', 'unrequited love' and 'best friends older brother' in one sexy sweet package. Grab this book on your kindle to read on about Drew fisher, a tatted police officer and his southern belle room mate, Courtney Bishop. Be prepared for crazy ex's, romance and plenty of heat in the bedroom (and out).


What did I love?
I was nuts about this books heroine. She was sassy, without being overboard. Sweet, without being a pushover and most of all she gave as good as she got and went after exactly what she wanted. I also love the mashup of themes that this book offered up. I'm a sucker for a little bit of unrequited love and I equally adore a friends to lovers theme, so as you can imagine I was definitely happy to read about this couple falling in love.

Why not five?
There were sadly parts of the story where the book had slightly cringe worthy, cliched romance novel moments. This made me a little disappointed as there were definitely winning moments of this novel where I felt really connected to the authors direction. I also had a little trouble falling for the hero, I struggled to believe in his love and I thought some of his feelings were developed way too quickly. I would have liked to have seen a little more resistance and more convincing of the development of his true feelings. (More show and less tell). However, with all that being said, this book was so close to a four star and it is most certainly my favourite book of the Kennedy Fox duo thus far.


Final thoughts ...
I am dying to get my hands on part two of this duet, as much as I had my minor niggles with this book it ended fabulously and I can't wait to see how the Fox twosome wrap up this love story. It would also be remiss of me not to mention that I'm already hoping that some of the secondary characters that popped up in the storyline get their own books ... (hint, hint the Bishop Brothers). For those readers who like all of the above mentioned go ahead and load your kindle up on release day. Enjoy ... kisses.
