Viola Fisher is the epitome of perfection.
She despises my one-night stands and mocks my less-than-classy habits.
She’s smart, beautiful, and too good to be true.
And I want her.

If she were anyone else, I’d have made my move years ago, but considering she’s my best friend’s little sister, she’s always been off-limits. Not to mention how much she loathes my very existence. 

Hating me is her religion, but needing her is mine. Her sexy curves and filthy smart mouth make me want her even more, and I’m more determined than ever to change her mind. 

I’ll prove I’m done playing games.
But until then, we’ll continue to play by her rules.
Viola Fisher may have won the battle, but the war isn’t over yet.

Checkmate, princess.

My Review:

So I got the chance to listen to the first part of this duet: Checkmate – This is War, earlier this year, and when it ended on a cliffhanger I was about to die because I didn’t think I’d get the second one. But then I did and I was glad because I needed answers! I did realize though that I’d heard the name of who was in the backseat of Travis’s car in the wreck wrong at the end of the first one. It wasn’t the woman from his work, it was Drew’s ex-girlfriend.

When I realized who it really was, I was a little irritated with how Viola reacted to it and how she didn’t trust Travis. Because while he may have been a womanizer, I couldn’t see him doing anything like that to his best friend Drew, and I can’t believe Viola thought he’d do something like that.

The second half of this duet was good, but not as good as the first half. As I mentioned above, a couple of the things I hate took place to add the drama to this. First, the not believing someone who really had not given any reason for that distrust in this situation. Secondly, the not telling someone something because you were afraid of how they’d react, when waiting any longer really was only going to make it worse in case they found out the wrong way, or even just the fact that they’d lied for so long.

Also about the last quarter of the book was all kind of epilogue style stuff, nothing really major. Of course until the very end when we do get a bit of a cliffhanger or surprise moment that leads us to needing to read the duet that comes after this one about Viola’s brother Drew. Which yes, I’m totally on board for and will need to get ahold of when I get the chance!
