Checkmate: This is Effortless - Drew & Courtney #2 by Kennedy Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This story picked up right where the last one ended. If you don’t know where that is then I suggest you pick up Checkmate: This is Reckless - Drew & Courtney #1 to find out. I’m trying really hard to avoid spoilers here!
It started off strong. Amid tons of drama and some OTT moments, Drew and Courtney remained solid and united. I couldn’t have asked for more than that. I loved seeing their unity despite the chaos that surrounded them. However, towards the middle and getting to the end, I felt a lull in momentum. To be quite frank, it got a tad boring. I started to dislike Courtney and it all felt a bit like filler. I hate filler. The heroine started to act like a ditz and I was left unimpressed.
When the story finally picked up steam, it gave me a sense of euphoria because I felt lost. Drew was the only reason I kept on reading. He was beyond amazing! The climax was a little anticlimactic but at least I finally got to sing the Munchkins song from The Wizard of Oz.
