If you could sum up Checkmate: This Is Reckless in three words, what would they be?
Friends. Lovers. Muffins (blueberry)
What other book might you compare Checkmate: This Is Reckless to and why?
There are tons of friends to lovers books out there, but I would probably compare it to romantic comedies like Lauren Blakely's Full Package. Lots of laughs and steam ;) There's also a bit of taboo (best friend's brother) and a slow burn build-up thrown in for good measure.
What about Lia Langola’s performance did you like?
I think her male voices are awesome, but her performance as Courtney was AMAZING!! I loved the southern accent and the way she delivered the perfect amount of sass and attitude, but also vulnerability. Amazing narration!!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
If I could have, I would have! The witty banter between all the characters had me laughing out loud and I really loved the chemistry between Drew and Courtney as well as the friendship with Viola and Travis.
Any additional comments?
This is book 1 of this duet (the second book has already been released though). The conclusion to Drew and Courtney's story can be found in Checkmate: This is Effortless.

Audiobook wise, incredible! I've listened to this entire series though audio (as well as having the paperback) because I'm hooked on the narration by Lia. Amazing job each and every time. On to the book, hello Deputy Fisher. Courtney & Drew have always been teasing and joking with eachother and she has always spoken her mind about Mia, Drew's girlfriend. I seriously cannot stand that woman and it irks me that Drew is constantly going back to her over and over again. When Courtney moves in with Drew their bond is stronger then ever even though Mia is clearly not happy about it. Courtney won't tell Drew how she truly feels about him deep down and past the friendship zone. I loved seeing this story develop with all the twists and turns. That ending.... whattttt? I cannot wait to read This Is Effortless. As much as this can be read as a standalone I recommend reading the entire Checkmate Series because each and every book is AMAZINGLY GOOD. This is without a doubt MUST READ.
