Checkmate: This is Love ( Travis & Viola #2) [Checkmate Duet #1] Book Review


Amazon | GoodReads

Goodread Synopsis:

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 [contains Spoilers]

I wish there was a way to leave out any spoilers in this review but it is just not possible. The first half of This is Love deals with the aftermath of Travis being in a car accident.  Travis spends some time in the hospital and when he is released  Viola helps him recover by being his personal home nurse. She feeds him and cares for him, including a rather steamy shower scrub down.


I feel as if the next half of the book could have been solved right off the bat if Travis would have explained completely the circumstances around the car accident. It works for the best though becuase we get to see Travis grow as a person and mature. Now that Travis has had Viola he doesnt want anyone else and he fights for her and their future together.

” She took my heart with her, and I’m waiting for her to personally deliver it back to me. To this day, the only woman I want is the one who stole my heart—Viola Fisher.”

In This is Love the story stops being about their anger and all about proving how much they care. That did not take away from their passion , humor and compatability that they had in the first book. In the end Viola and Travis get the happily ever after they deserve.



4/5 stars
