Discovered Mate: A Tale of Desire and Chess
by Todd Caldwell
Sam is smart, crazy, intense, and Alex knows it. And it annoys the hell out of her. Not that Alex would mind a little intensity. All she has from college are good grades. She begs her friend Sophie for help, and Sophie invites Alex to dinner and chess, with Sam. But that isn't the kind of fun Alex wants.
"It's strip chess, Alex."
That might be more intensity than Alex can handle.
