Courtney Bishop is as sugary sweet as her famous blueberry muffins. Southern belle at heart, Cali girl by choice. She barged into my life and easily became my best friend. All was great as roommates and just friends, but then I fell for the girl who could chop firewood, deliver baby calves, and bail hay without breaking a sweat. She's the perfect mixture of sugar and spice, and I love her. Being more than friends and trying to build our future isn't as easy as it sounds. Moving forward and creating memories is all I want for us, but when the past continues to come back and haunt me, I'm not so sure she'll stay for the ride. Loving her is easy, but losing her will break me. Burning passion combined with an undeniable chemistry constantly pushes and pulls us together. In the end, I'll prove we're worth the fight, even when the game is far from over. Checkmate, sweetheart.

Amazingly Brilliant Sequel! Fabulous Story & Narration🎧📚🎧
Wow, the awesomeness continues in the second book of Drew and Courtney’s story as Kennedy Fox ups the drama and the heat. Their story is an epic friends to lovers romance, I love Courtney’s southern charm and the light-hearted humor she brings where ever she goes. She has even gotten Drew, Mr. Health and Fit, to indulge in her muffins. There is only one problem in their relationship and that would be Mia. And I thought she was a piece of work in the first book, she takes it to a whole new level in this book, starting with what happened at the end of the 1st book. I loved how everything plays out in this book, beautifully and cleverly plotted and there is never a dull moment. I felt the romance and friendship was beautifully plotted, there were many wonderful scenes, that made me smile. The Mia storyline was cleverly plotted and brought some darkness in the story, as well as mystery and thrilling suspense. There was plenty of drama, angst, heartfelt and emotional moments. It was great to see more of the other characters in the series as well. Kennedy Fox, thank you for another awesome story and emotional rollercoaster ride.
