Checkmate by Tiece Mickens tells the story of main character Monty Banks. At the age of 23 he is successful sex for hire escort but the only thing he is serving up is sexual relations and his services he isn’t cheap either.
Monty has been able to survive and help his mom with the help of his lucrative business, but he just wants to make his money and eventually retire from the “fast life” since it often comes with a lot of unwanted attention that he isn’t actually seeking. He wants to walk away but the satisfaction of being able to bring his female clients to is such sexual bliss and a pure adrenaline rush for Monty. Not knowing when to call it quits, he continues this lifestyle while padding his wallet.
Enter his sister’s best friend Candy into the equation, a pretty young thing that he has considered taking it to the next level with. Due to her age he has forced himself to wait and he does but as soon as she turns legal he gives into temptation and a love affair is born.
Checkmate is a very interesting story and I could not put the book down, it definitely kept my attention because I wanted to know what was going to happen next especially between Candy and Monty. The questions swirl throughout, would it be love or money and would Candy stay around if the choice didn’t benefit her?
Tiece Mickens definitely wove together a great storyline with perfect execution that will leave readers ready for her sequel. Definitely a literary job well done for the debut novelist.
