Brooke Cumberland & Lyra Parish are a duo of romance authors who teamed up under the USA Today Bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox who share a love of You’ve Got Mail and The Holiday. When they aren’t bonding over romantic comedies, they like to brainstorm new book ideas. One day, they decided to collaborate and have some fun creating new characters that’ll make your lady bits tingle and your heart melt. If you enjoy romance stories with sexy, tattooed alpha males and smart, independent women, then a Kennedy Fox book is for you!

“This Is War will keep your emotions right on the surface and have eyes glued to the pages until you forget when day has turned into night.”
–USA Today Happy Ever After Blog

“This is War was a funny, sexy & adorable love story about two people who used to like each other as kids, hated each other once they grew up and now are on their way to falling for each other…”
–BJ’s Book Blog

“The tension, the banter, the emotion just flies off of every single page. You won’t know whether to love or hate Travis King and you will be cheering on Viola every chance you get.”
–Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads

I LOVED this book! There were so many moments that this hate to love relationship really gets under your skin (in a good way) and then begin to develop more as the story goes on! There was definitely a lot of *heat* going on, and you definitely will not be prepared for what happens. A truly entertaining war between V and Travis, that I would one hundred percent re-read in a heartbeat!”
–The Graduated Bookworm

“This book was full of angst! It fun, sexy, and hot. I couldn’t put it down once I started! Travis and Viola’s story had me hooked from the start. I really loved the banter between them. It had me giggling when they were together. But the sexual tension woahh and some hot scenes. Hate f*cks are the best. When things start to look up for the pair we are left with an OMG moment. I really can’t wait for the next book. This book is very well written!”
–WLTB Blog

“Four AMAZING characters. Two INCREDIBLE love stories. Two FANTASTIC duets complete. If you haven’t started the Checkmate Duet Series, YOU. ARE. MISSING. OUT.”
-Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads
