Inked Avenue Reviews… “Checkmate: This Is Dangerous” by Kennedy Fox

//Checkmate: This Is Dangerous by Kennedy Fox//


I knew it was coming. That heart stopping cliffhanger… But nothing could have prepared me for that showstopping shocker. I literally gasped and had a silent panic attack because I knew that couldn’t possibly be the end. Kennedy Fox has, yet again, created a suspenseful, dangerously sexy, and angsty novel with Checkmate: This Is Dangerous. It will leave readers stunned with its surprise twist and left desperately wanting more.

Logan and Kayla are hands down my favorite in the Checkmate Duet Series! Team #Layla FOREVER!! Their story was more of a slow angsty burn that makes you feel all warm and tingly inside. In the previous books, Logan was a mysterious riddle that I instantly wanted to know more about. He keeps his personal life and his heart locked in a steal cage while keeping everyone, including anyone that could ever love him, at arms length. But once you get inside his head, see behind the walls he throws up, and watch as his actions shed light on his compassionate heart… well… it’s enough to make any woman swoon. Despite being the most swoon worthy character Kennedy Fox has created, he was equally as frustrating as he kept denying he feelings for Kayla. Kayla, on the other hand, is such a kindhearted soul. She is caring and giving individual who wears her heart on her sleeve, but also has a feisty passionate side that makes you love her that much more as a character. Out of all the characters in the Checkmate series Kayla and Logan feel the most real. Both are flawed characters still battling demons from their past that still haunt them. But together they were fire! The constant push and pull and the inner turmoil they battled with toward taking that next step created amazing sexual tension! and when they finally gave in… it was explosive!

The plot served as introduction to what is to come in book two with the secondary story definitely becoming our main source of entertainment. Because this was such a slow burning and slow moving novel, until the last half of the novel that is, we are left with many unanswered questions and unlimited possibilities for This Is Beautiful.

This is Dangerous is without a doubt my favorite, so far in the series. It’s real, passionate, and dangerous. I have a feeling This Is Beautiful is going to be a doozy with surprises and twists that I will never see coming! I need it NOW!




checkmate_6_This is Dangerous

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.**
