Rookie Moves by Shelly Alexander is book number two in the Checkmate Inc, series. The book can also be read as a standalone. But, I recommend that if you haven't read the first that you do because it was so good too. This is Dex Moore and Ava Foxx's story. I loved Dex and Ava's story!! This series just gets better and better. This is a fun and steamy romance between two people that have known each other for years. It is also about discovering the importance of friendship and family. Ava and Dex have been skating around their feeling for each for years. Ava is off limits because she is one of his friend's and business partner's little sister. He doesn't want to ruin his friendship with Ava and her brother or cause problems with their business. You are in for a hot, hot, and fun read. Well, little sister has grown up. Ava decides to confront this and makes her move. So, let the games begin! Checkmate! FYI, contains mature content.  I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This was a fun and easy friends to lovers story with a healthy dose of forbidden romance (best friend's little sister). The story revolves around Dexter (Dex) and Ava as they blur the line between friends to something more. Rookie Moves is book 2 in the Checkmate Inc series, but can be read as a standalone, although characters from the previous book appear. This was a lighthearted and at times hilarious romance. I really enjoyed the story being completely told from Dex's point of view. There was plenty of heat and chemistry between Dex and Ava, and it was fun reading about them losing their different rookie cards. I did find though that both our hero and heroine acted on the more immature side in their attempts to hide/justify their relationship, but I understand why they felt compelled to do so. It just seemed harder to accept since Dex is supposedly a genius (but apparently lacked communication skills) and Ava is supposed to be a no filter, no holds barred kind of woman. Both characters are likeable though, and I loved them as a couple. You definitely root for them to get their happily ever after. Rookie Moves was an enjoyable and steamy romance. Even though it was clear what direction this one was going to go in, I still found it fun and entertaining. I'm looking forward to reading about Oz in the next book. *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*
