4.5 Stars
The anticipated conclusion of the Logan & Kayla saga in the Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo under the USA Today bestselling author 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?


Kayla Sinclair is a saint and real life Angel.
She wears her heart on her sleeve and inspires me to be a better person.
Rescuing dogs, feeding the homeless, volunteering at the local food pantry are just a few of the ways she gives back to others, although no one has ever been there for her.
Falling for her was inevitable, losing her will destroy me.

Letting someone in didn't come easy, but she made me want to try for the first time in years.
Her bubbling personality and kind spirit make it impossible to forget a girl like her.
But when tragedy strikes and she loses all memory that our relationship ever existed, my worst nightmare comes to life.

I'll do anything to remind her of the love we shared. I know it'll be an uphill battle, but I won't walk away without a fight. Whoever said all is fair in love and war never played by my rules.

Checkmate, Angel.

*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*

**This is book w in the Logan & Kayla Saga--a second-chance romance. Must read This is Dangerous first. However, you don't need to read any of the other Checkmate duet series to enjoy this one, but it‘s always recommended as they are both introduced in the earlier books.**

Logan & Kayla.
Please do NOT read this review if you haven't read the first book about those 2!
There was a HUGE cliffy in book #1 and book #2 takes off where the first one ended...

Kayla hit her head and now she doesn't remember the last two years - including Logan.
He's completely shocked that the woman he loves no longer recognizes him. BUT, she's still hugely attracted to him, so there might be a chance for them.
Logan tries to be there for her as a good friend while Kayla tries to get her memory back.
And then there's all the mystery and excitement from book #1 to clear up.
What was Kayla doing in that house? Who are those people? Who is Abby? What about the old man who got his dog stolen?

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


Finally back with Logan and Kayla.
And our four other darlings too!
It's all so sad. Poor Logan. Poor Kayla. It's horrible for both of them.
But of course we're hoping that Kayla will remember what Logan means to her soon.
But it's not as easy as that.
Kayla feels bad that Logan is so in love with her and she can't remember anything. Ugh!
But even without Kayla's memory this book was very adorable and sexy and exciting and sad and moving!
Lots of sweet doggie scenes and father and dauther scenes.
Great finale to an amazing series.

#CHECKMATE: This is Beautiful was the perfect last book in this amazing series! Moving, scary, exciting, romantic, sexy, adorable, funny! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Logan - this one is MINE ... and Travis and Drew too!!!

... were there some things I didn't like? Hm not really. But the writing is not 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. Too complicated words or sentences in situations where no one would ever talk like that. Words missing where I learned in school to put words. No idea what I really mean. I'm weird! I've noticed that in all the previous Kennedy Fox books too. It's just their kind of style. It's just not a writing style I love. But I love the stories! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

You will need to have read Checkmate: This is Dangerous prior to reading This is Beautiful, as things start up right where Dangerous ended.

I am not going to lie, I have terrible bookzheimer's so I did go back and read the last chapter of  Dangerous before starting this one, and I am glad I did as I had forgotten where the first book ended.

And when I started Beautiful, I was thrown right back into Logan-Land and didn't want to leave.

Our lovelies story is not always rainbows and butterflies.  I don't want to give anything away, but let me tell you, all the feels!  It is raw, emotional, I wanted to laugh, I wanted to cry.  I wanted to hit one particular character over the head with my Kindle - if you have read the first in the duet you will know which one I am talking about.

I adore both Logan and Kayla - can't help it, they're just both so likable!

And I may again be having cravings for doughnuts!

I LOVE that we got more of the guys and gals from the earlier duets in the Checkmate series.  It is fun to see where they are all at as the series progressed.

It is always bittersweet when a series comes to an end, however I have adored every minute I have spent reading the Checkmate books.

Now I am impatiently awaiting this duos next series, coming early next year.

If you enjoy romance stories with sexy, tattooed alpha males and smart, independent women, then a Kennedy Fox book is for you! Both authors are from Manhattan living the glamorous bachelorette life, or perhaps they’re just confusing themselves with an episode of Sex and the City (Total #Girlcrush SJP). Either way, they’re looking forward to bringing you many more stories to fall in love with!
