Travis King is the worst kind of a**hole. He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards. He's cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes. And I hate him. He's always loved getting under my skin, and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed. I've succumbed to his manw**re ways, but that doesn't change a thing. Because the King is about to get played at his own game - and lose.

Would you consider the audio edition of Checkmate: This Is War to be better than the print version?

I truly would rather read a book than listen to it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the print version and I could hardly put it down. The audio edition was good, but it would have been much better had there been a male voice for Travis. Lia Langola did well for Viola, but I needed to hear Travis.

What did you like best about this story?

I got drawn up into the characters and really was pulling for them.

Which character – as performed by Lia Langola – was your favorite?

She did a decent job.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There was a lot of laughter and fanning.

Any additional comments?

I really had to say WTF at the ending.
