Book Review: THIS IS WAR by Kennedy Fox


 

Title: This is War 
Author: Kennedy Fox 
Genre: Enemies to Lovers Romance 
Release Date: October 3rd, 2016 



Introducing The Checkmate Duet from a secret duo of bestselling authors! Checkmate: This is War is an enemies to lovers romance that will have you crying with laughter one moment and screaming in frustration the next... but you'll be begging to play the game with The King. 
Game on.

Travis King is the worst kind of a**hole.
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 wasted on such an arrogant 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 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 manw**re ways, but that doesn't change a thing.

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






"My pulse only increases when he walks in the room. my cheeks flush and my body hums when he looks at me. I feel the blood in my veins as my skin heats from his very existence. He's the epitome of perfection. ...Too bad a decade later, he's a complete asshole. 
Travis King." 

Ahh, where do I even begin with this amazing book?! This book was everything! I loved every word, every page, and every emotion that graced these pages. Kennedy Fox knows how to make me laugh, cry, fluster with anger, and fully emerge myself into this checkmate world. 

"He managed to manipulate every brain cell into obeying him even after fighting to stay strong around him but I won't surrender my heart to him." 

Viola Fisher is a nerd. She loves to read, loves to lose herself in a good book and fantasize about finally getting her Hogwarts letter. And she has no shame about what she loves and being smart. But that has never stopped Travis King from making fun of her. 

"You're so vile."
" You have no idea just how vile I can be." 

These two bicker and fight like an old married couple. They also know how to hate each other with a fiery passion. Though they didn't always used to hate each other, they do now and there is nothing they can do about it. Travis may have broken her heart when she was a kid but she will never let herself get hurt like that again. 

"He's the king of all douches, a manwhore and one -upper. And I'm still the girl with a stupid crush." 

Travis acts like he hates Viola, always picking on her and driving her up the wall but he knows better. He's a manwhore at it's finest and he's never claimed to want or any desire to be any different.  Though he never thought about putting the moves on his best friends sister, he's always felt something and always picks on getting into her pants. Though it may be just hate, he knows she is drop dead gorgeous and smarter than anyone he knows. Viola Fisher is a princess. And his tainted fingers want to ruin her. 

"You should know better than to play mind games with a princess, King." 

These two are a riot and I loved every inch of it. Travis King is a sexy beast and Viola is my new homegirl. These two are everything they never knew they wanted. But will the king surrender and finally bow to a princess? Or will the king rule...forever alone? 

This is definitely a must read duet and you are going to want to have This is Love handy after the ending of this bad boy.
