Checkmate Duet Boxed Set (Logan & Kayla)
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Introducing the complete Logan & Kayla saga in the Checkmate series from the USA Today Bestselling duo, Kennedy Fox!
Checkmate: This is Dangerous & This is Beautiful is a second-chance romance that’ll have you swooning and laughing from the first to the last page! Are you ready to play the game?
Logan Knight is a real-life knight in shining armor. 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 Kayla can’t help the way he makes her feel when she’s near him. Too bad he’s unavailable–or so he says.
Kayla Sinclair is a saint and real-life angel.
She wears her heart on her sleeve and inspires Logan 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 is inevitable, but losing her will destroy him.
Logan may think he has her all figured out, but Kayla is determined to prove him wrong.. This game of push and pull has her running in circles. One wrong move and they could both lose.
When unexpected tragedy strikes and Kayla forgets their relationship ever existed, Logan’s worst nightmare comes to life. He’ll do anything to remind her of the love they shared. It’ll be an uphill battle, but Logan won’t walk away without a fight. Whoever said all is fair in love and war never played by his rules.
*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*
Donuts and Knight are the best!
I have officially survived the checkmate duet series. I enjoyed reading this book so much. I've been wanting to know about Kayla and Logan since their appearance in the previous duets. This is really an amazing second chance story. Logan Knight really did live up to the knight in shining armor. Regardless of what Kayla went through, she never let it push her down and she was still the giving person she always as been. #TeamLayla
Logan is my Knight in Shining Armor!!
O...M...G... I've got no words!! These ladies really know how to bring it when it comes to a cliffhanger. And well in This is Dangerous they brought it. What I will say is Kayla and Logan are just such a beautiful couple. I absolutely loved that Logan was so loving and protective with Kayla from the beginning. Even though he fought his feelings towards her, you can see that he was in love with everything that was Kayla. You just want to eat him up like a delicious doughnut. I've said this once and I'll say it again: how is it possible for these ladies to make me fall in love with yet another stellar couple!
My emotions are all over the place after reading This is Beautiful. On one hand I was so happy with how Logan's and Kayla's story ended. They proved that no matter what obstacles they encountered, the love they had for each other was stronger. Logan Knight is definitely a Knight in Shining Armor and let's not forget to mention he's absolutely hot. On the other hand, I'm so sad the duet series is over. I've absolutely love every single character in the Checkmate series. I can't wait to see what else is to come from future projects. TeamLayla TeamCheckmate.
You Donut Want to Miss This Box Set!
LOVE #TeamLayla! I'm so excited that This is Dangerous and This is Beautiful are now available in a box set! It was bittersweet to say goodbye to the Checkmate duet series, but readers are going to love Logan and Kayla's story!
This Is Dangerous Review
Even though I knew to expect some heartbreak at the end of This is Dangerous (since it's book 1 in the duet), my heart still wasn't quite prepared. Though this is the 5th book in the Checkmate series, it can be enjoyed without reading books 1-4. I do recommend it though since characters from those books appear in This is Dangerous, and the main characters, Logan and Kayla, were previously introduced as well.
Logan and Kayla's story was a slower burn than the previous books, but once it got going, I didn't want to put it down. It felt more raw and emotional, with both the hero and heroine dealing with the demons and baggage from their pasts. It was heartbreaking to see how broken and damaged they believed themselves to be and how this shaped the people they became. I think of all the Checkmate characters, Logan and Kayla feel the most real. They aren't perfect people. They have insecurities, fears, and are doing their best with their less than ideal circumstances. The slow burn friends to lovers really works in this book and I enjoyed the build up, innuendo, and angst. They have incredible chemistry and Detective Knight did not disappoint in (and out of) the bedroom. ;)
Appearances by #TeamDrewtney and #TeamTraviola helped add to the fun and there are some incredibly hilarious text messages exchanged between our characters. I'm excited for the conclusion to Logan and Kayla's story in This is Beautiful and September can't get here fast enough!
This is Beautiful Review
What a sweet conclusion to the Checkmate series! Checkmate: This is Beautiful is book 2 in Logan and Kayla's story and should only be read after Checkmate: This is Dangerous.
The book picks up right where the last one left off and your heart will hurt all over again with this painful reminder of how book 1 ended. Of all the Checkmate books, I felt like this one was the most real in it's emotions. You can easily imagine yourself in both Logan or Kayla's position and how incredibly difficult it would be to navigate. Some very interesting questions about relationships are posed and what it means to truly love someone versus a strong physical connection. Can you fall in love with the same person without the shared history and memories? Or is love enough to begin again?
I liked that there wasn't a big mystery to solve and that the focus of the story was on Logan and Kayla's relationship itself. Yes, there's a little other woman/man drama thrown in for good measure and some of the story seemed drawn out, but overall, the book answers all your lingering questions from This is Dangerous and the angst is between our hero and heroine. Toss in some sinfully sexy times (mmm..... donuts) and this made for an amazing second chance love story. Honestly, I will NEVER look at donuts the same way again!
The ending and epilogue were perfect and such a wonderful way to bring things full circle. I think Logan is now the winner of the Checkmate book boyfriends. He really was incredible and his chapters were especially touching and heartfelt. Seeing this softer and more vulnerable side to him was amazing. It's bittersweet that the series is over, but I'm glad we're not saying good bye to the Checkmate world. Courtney's brothers will be the focus of the next series titled Bishop Boys and I can't wait to see what mischief Kennedy Fox has in store for us!
