Product Description

Introducing book 1 in the Logan & Kayla saga of the Checkmate series from a secret duo of romance authors who teamed up under the USA Today Bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox! 
This second-chance romance will have you gasping and cheering this two on from the first to the last page! Are you ready to play the final game?
***


Logan Knight is a real life knight in shining armor. 
A detective godsend in a sleek black suit has me thinking less than secretive thoughts. Brooding and mysterious, he's the kind of guy every girl instantly notices. Between his seductive smirk and charming good looks, it's no wonder I can't help the way he makes me feel whenever I'm near him. 
Too bad he's unavailable--or so he says.

He thinks I'm a do-gooder who shouldn't get involved with a guy like him. His past is messy and relationships just add to that. He insists the timing is all wrong and he's devoted to his career, but I don't buy that excuse for a second. I see the way his body tenses and his jaw ticks every time another guy is around me. He just won't admit it, but I'm more determined than ever to show him what he's missing.

I'm a devoted animal rescuer and I'll risk everything to save them, but when a dramatic turn of events puts both our lives at risk, I'm positive Logan will write me off for good. But when he asks for my help with a personal crisis, I know it's my last chance to finally show him I can handle anything he throws my way--messy past and all.

He might think he has me all figured out, but I'll prove him wrong no matter what he thinks. This game of push and pull has me running in circles. One wrong move and we could both lose.

Checkmate, Knight.


*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*
**This is book 1 in the Logan & Kayla Saga--a second-chance romance. You don't need to read any of the other Checkmate series to enjoy this one, but is always recommended as they are both introduced in the earlier books.**

If you’ve read the first two duets, then you are already aware that part one always ends with a major cliff-hanger. Well, it seems to me that with each set, they get even more heart-wrenching! So be prepared, this cliff-hanger will stab you right in the heart!!! I saw it coming, I guessed exactly how it wound end, but for those last few percent of the book I kept saying to myself silently, “No way, you’re wrong. No way, you’re wrong.” But I was right, and now I’m cursing Kennedy Fox and praying that they change their minds and give us book 2 in August instead of September!! Hell, give it to me now!

I loved the start to Logan and Kayla’s story. Kayla is a sweet, caring and compassionate woman with a heart of gold. She loves animals and wants to do anything that she can to ensure they feel loved and protected. I share her love of animals, so I really connected to her character as I studied Animal Welfare in college and worked in a Veterinary Hospital.

Logan is a bit mysterious and guarded. He keeps Kayla a safe distance away and as the story unfolds we learn a few reasons why Logan feels as though Kayla should be with someone other than him. But no matter how hard he tries to fight it, the pull towards her is too strong. He cares for Kayla, he wants to be there for her and to protect her, and once he gives into his desires, the chemistry they create is explosive! HOT!

#Layla has found their way into my heart right alongside #Drewtney and #Traviola. This is Dangerous is funny, sexy and sweet. It’ll keep you glued to your device from start to finish and you’ll be left craving (shouting) for more!

Oh Logan, you are a dork, lovable but still a dork. Kayla and Logan are the single friends in their group of 6 and Kayla has always had a thing for Logan. But Logan, well, he has issues and insists on keeping Kayla at a distance. When Kayla needs Logan’s help out of crazy dog rescue situation, I really got to experience what Logan is trying so hard to fight. He is a complex man so as Kayla leans on him more in times of crises, he begins to open up to her and let her in. Kayla has a wonderful outlook on life, she works hard to volunteer and help others after growing up in foster homes. She just wants to find and give love and deep down knows Logan is the guy if only he would figure it out. This is a fun and funny journey as the walls are slowly broken down. Kayla has a knack for getting in crazy situations with the best intentions. I just had fun with the back and forth between these two. The ending has me anxious for book 2 of their journey. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

 *I received a copy of this book from the authors in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion.*

What the hell, K&F?! Travis was supposed to be my one true love and I was going to steal him from Viola...how could you give me a new favourite man? Actually, this has somehow replaced This is War as my favourite Checkmate book too. The tag-line, "Dogs, Donuts, and Logan Knight", pretty much sums up how I fell in love with this story so much so quickly.

It's a Checkmate book so of course we see Travis, Viola, Drew, and Courtney along with the new couple. I feel like this crew is my actual friend group at this point because I've been through so many books with them. As I mentioned, however, I have a special new love for Logan. He's so sweet...and stubborn...and rugged...and dreamy. Seeing his POV in terms of his feeling towards Kayla and how he is with everyone on a daily basis made me warm up to him a lot more than I had from his appearances in the previous books. Kayla is also adorable and I kinda want to be her bestie now. I love how determined she is and how much passion she has for all the things she does in her life. The way they dealt with Maggie's story line in This is Dangerous was also amazing. Although she's a secondary character she received the royal treatment and I'm glad she wasn't really vilified (which often happens to characters in her role).

After all the drama in Courtney and Drew's stories, Logan and Kayla seem pretty tame but it was a nice switch up. The pace was just right and it had just enough going on to keep me intrigued and wanting to know more all the time. There are also lots of puppies, donut shops, cute moments, and cute banter which are 3 key ingredients to romances that make me squeal audibly.

Kennedy Fox are the dynamic duo who always seems to keep us on our toes! This book is amazing and is the perfect book for this series. I 100% believe this has the biggest cliff hanger they're left us with yet! Thank god Checkmate: This is Beautiful is coming in September! Only a little over two months wait that I will be constantly drawing conclusions to Logan and Kayla's story! Such a beautiful and dangerous book that I've completely falling in love with! It will be a devastating day when this whole series comes to an end!

This series just keeps getting better and better!
I have been rooting for Kayla and Logan ever since meeting them in the previous books and I LOVE them! The more I read their story the more pleasantly surprised I am and OH MY GOODNESS! DOUGHNUTS!! Mmmmmm
Kayla, lover of dogs and all things sweet is definitely a girl after my own heart! And Logan Knight! The hot mysterious detective I would do petty crime just to get him to notice me. You're in for a real treat when you read Checkmate: This is Dangerous!
Like always, Kennedy Fox leaves us wanting so much more! I CANNOT wait for the next book!!
