4.5 Stars
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.

*Recommended 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.**

Logan & Kayla.
We all remember them from the last books, and now it's time for their own HEA!
But it's not as easy as it could/should be.
The main reason why Logan doesn't want to start anything with Kayla is ... his daughter Skylar.
She's his everything! And her mom makes his live ... hell. She constantly needs more money, doesn't allow him enough time with Skylar, bad-mouths him to the girl and the other mothers in dance class. She's horrible. Logan wants nothing more than for Skylar and Maggie to move to Sacramento, so that he can spend more time with his daughter. But Maggie is a real b*tch about things.
And right in the middle of all that he's so horribly attracted to Kayla, but he doesn't want to drag her into his complicated life.
But maybe Kayla wants to be dragged???
She wants nothing more than to belong somewhere. To someone. She went from foster home to foster home until she was 18. She finally wants a real family!

What will happen to Kayla & Logan?
Will there be a HEA?

OK - there might be a tiny little - HUGE - cliffy - but book #2 will be out in September!


Finally back in Sacramento with our darlings...
We finally find out what Logan's life is like. And it's horrible. That stupid ex of his. Grrrr. I wanted to hit her over the head with my kindle!!!! But I still have hope that she'll be magically nicer by the end of the book!
Logan's such an adorable dad to Skylar. Soooo cute. But Maggie is doing everything she can to work against him.
And poor Kayla. She's never been this drawn to a guy. But it's all so complicated.
And Skylar is not Logan's only problem - he still has nightmares from his time in the military. He really doesn't want Kayla dragged into his sh*t. She deserves so much better.
And Kayla might also have a secret or two ....
It's all so very cute and funny but also very serious and frustrating. And we also have some suspensy and very exciting moments too!!! And lots of dogs! ☺☺☺
And that END! OY!

#CHECKMATE: This is DANGEROUS was a really great first book in the Kayla & Logan lovestory! Exciting, adorable, sexy, frustrating, sad, moving, mysterious, suspensy, scary! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Logan - this one is MINE!!!

... were there some things I didn't like? Hm not really. Just sometimes the writing is not really my thing. But that's my problem. I can't really explain it. Some expressions or words just seem wrong to me. Wrong words in the wrong place. No idea. I'm weird! I've noticed that in all the previous Kennedy Fox books I've read. It's just their kind of style. But it's not one I looove. 

ARC received for an honest review


We were set up for Kayla and the mysterious Logan's story in the previous duets, and now it is finally time for them to get their HEA.

I have adored the dog pushing, doughnut loving Kayla since we first met her.  She is completely in love with Logan, but he won't let himself be with her - but does that horrible "I don't want her but don't want anyone else to have her" thing with her.

Logan - sigh, I can understand why he is so standoffish, but it doesn't make him any less frustrating! As each brick in the wall he built around him was chipped away, I loved him even more. I adore him with the mysterious Skylar, but OMG his ex wife Maggie - I just wanted to smack that woman over the head with my Kindle, and hope that she got better as the book went on!

This installment has a bit of everything.  It is sweet and sexy and funny, but with a bit of sadness and loneliness thrown in there.

I LOVE getting more of the guys and gals from the previous duets.  The lives of these friends are so interwoven that it wouldn't be right with out them - especially Viola and Courtney!

Not going to lie, we are left with one heck of a cliffhanger - but we don't have too long to wait for the second half of this duet in September.

I want, no I need more!

Now, where can I find doughnuts???
