After falling in love with both Alex and Ellie in Stalemate...I couldn't wait for Checkmate.
This book was even better than the first and that is saying something. Rose sawyers writing had me under a spell, I couldn't put this book down and read it in 1 sitting.
I was on the edge all the way through, just when I thought I knew what was coming I was thrown in a spin. 

This book CAN NOT be read as a standalone!!!!

We all know this couple had an electrifying connection and were great together from the first book but their relationship was based on lies and deceit.

Ellie had fallen hard but has to protect Alex, they were never supposed to be forever. She was out for revenge and he was a way in...Now he has her heart but she cant stay.

Alex is head strong and he refuses to give Ellie up without a fight. He is the only woman who has ever captured his interest and heart. She is the perfect 10. 

When truths and secrets are revealed they both have hard decisions to make but will the be the right ones and for the right reasons???

Were this couple doomed from the very start?

This is a sexy, fun suspense filled read and I would recommend it to everyone
