Because of Leo's desire for Chloe, he makes some bad decisions and keeps his business partners in the dark which causes Checkmate more PR problems, mix that with Chloe's obsessive boss who's out to get her really puts Leo's company in jeopardy.
I really enjoyed this book loved the plot and all the characters including one named Toby<3 it had me not only swooning but laughing.
Chloe is Leo's sisters friend and is in PR. Checkmate finds itself in need of some good PR and Chloe is their girl. A sexy, funny and at times dramatic story ensues.
I loved that this is a completely different angle from other romances I have read. ForePlay was refreshing and brilliant read. When you read as much as I do, it is always great to read something different. I would highly suggest this one!
It was easy to connect to the characters and all the characters were great. I look forward to future books about the other Checkmate, Inc. guys!
I was provided a copy for an honest review.

There's a lot of fun sexual word play (which is the name of this game)...lots of sexual innuendo especially when Leo meets Chloe Evers and he becomes obsessed with her...flirting with her and more. It was so darn cute to watch them circle each other. There are dozens and dozens of sexually veiled lessons between the game of chess and how much power a woman holds with a man and I absolutely loved how this author intertwined the two.
I loved Leo...a genius who "loves 'em and leaves 'em" until he's bulldozed over by a fast speeding train with one look from Chloe and it was hilarious. He see's everything in slo-mo and all she does is stroll into his space and he's completely useless. Twitter-pated. He's blasted into oblivion. Aaaaaaand of course he tries to rid himself of his obsession thinking "one good roll in the hay" will get rid of his incessant desire...(yeah, we all know how THAT always works out!...) buuuut if only muddies the water up worse than before. And through it all is the wonderful, controversial drama; both with Leo and his two partner/best friends, (Oz & Dex) and their many business dealings...someone trying to sabotage their business (a mole?)....feminists picketing outside their building; bad press derailing their company.... and of course Chloe befuddling this guys thinking. It was SO great. Chloe was equally interesting...she's a gorgeous and strong young woman (26) who fights to stay on top in a man's world that's trying to knock her down....while struggling with her emotional demons. This story is told in 1st person from a man's POV. I thought at first it would've been better if we could've heard from Chloe...know her inner thoughts, etc. But I don't think so. I think Ms. Alexander told it perfectly from a man's view point. It made me more sympathetic to Leo and what he went through. Brilliantly played!
