“I’ve always loved you and no matter what happens, I will always love you.”
“Anything. Everything. She can have my house, my business, everything that I have. I don’t care about any of it. The only thing that I want is her.”


WOW, what an emotional journey! I need to calm down and need some fresh air for me to breathe!

Okay, first off, the cover, really? I mean there is no doubt that hero and heroin has perfect chemistry with each other, but I just feel this is not the right one for them, especially finish reading this book. lol

The plot summary indicates that the Hero Connor is a "childhood nemesis with BAD BOY charm " to our headstrong Heroin . Bad boy? Rolling my eyes!!!

Well, I think it's time to talk about the so called "BAD BOY " type character, we all know the typical bad boy image okay?!

After reading about 25% of the book, I found that our Hero Connor is anything but a bad boy. Actually , he is a sweet and nic

Well, I think it's time to talk about the so called "BAD BOY " type character, we all know the typical bad boy image okay?!

After reading about 25% of the book, I found that our Hero Connor is anything but a bad boy. Actually , he is a sweet and nice guy with a sense of responsibility . If you read through the whole book, I believe that you would feel the same way. Maybe, he just didn't know how to express his feeling appropriately towards Rory.

Connor was being a big time jerk to Rory in his entire adolescent. Hello?! Based on my personal experience and most of teenagers' girls experience back in school, don't we find that almost all the teenager boys sometimes can be massive jerks to girls, specifically to those girls they might be interested in (or maybe not, for they are just being pure moron and assholes) ? And being a BAD BOY doesn't equal to being a JERK!

And our cute and stubborn Rory found out that he was a sweet guy by telling Connor what he had done for her and below is the original words came from Rory:

"Why are you being so nice to me?" she asked, confusing the hell out of him.

"What do you mean 'what am I talking about'?" she demanded, sounding frustrated. "You took care of me after I fell, held my hand, kept my brothers from making things worse, spent the last couple of days playing nursemaid to me and you really have to ask what I'm talking about?"

Never in her wildest dreams would she have imagined a man treating her the way that Connor did. He was sweet, funny, attentive, and he went out of his way to make her feel special. AWW...

If Connor is not a nice and sweet guy, will he do those things for ? Hell NO! I'm truly feel happy for her finding her own happiness.

Below are some cute moments from Rory and Connor :

"He ignored her and finished off her cocoa as she was forced to sit there, watching as her precious cocoa was stolen."

"Yeah, stop touching my cocoa," she said as she tried to climb off his lap, but he didn't release her.


As a HOT COCOA lover myself, I could't help giggling each time when Connor try to steal COCOA from Rory, though he preferred to drink coffee. Besides, especially right now, here in cold Northern China, who would resist to drink HOT COCOA to keep warm?! lol

These two enemies later ended up working in the same construction project. Or shall we say our smartass Connor plot the whole scheme to win her heart by "stealing " Rory's Project? He even made the "pretending girlfriend "deal with her and made her have no choice but to follow his rules.
And this particular DEAL doesn't involve sex. Well Well, we all know what might be happened in the end. It seemed like Connor took a lead in this game, but you would found out that he more likely to push her to the limits and let her control how far and deep their relationship would go to.


Connor is definitely my new book boyfriend (giggles and blushed)and he is such a gentlemen to Rory when she was ill:

Ten minutes later he was chucking off most of his clothes, climbing in bed with her and not a moment too soon. She’d been dealing with a migraine that left her helpless to move. He helped her take her pills and crawled back into bed with her and held her until she fell asleep.

The so-called deal was like a play to see how Connor knocked down Rory's shield and melt her heart with actions.

After Connor confessed what exactly happened in the night they got caught in the police station in Canada back when they were only 18 years. He didn't back off towards her reaction and he manned up as always and spoke from his chest :
"Since now, Rory. You're not allowed to run away, because you're too afraid to face what's going on between us."

Whoohooo! Reading those words from his mouth, I was like "Way to Go, Man!”

If you are looking for a NEW Adult romance that would make you laugh and cry to happy tears, Checkmate won't let you down!

Last but not least, this is my first R.L. Mathewson Novel and she really below my mind away and I absolutely adore this sweet story ! What a name -Checkmate?! Just love it !
