Review: Checkmate: This is Dangerous (Logan & Kayla, #1) (Checkmate Duet #5) by Kennedy Fox

Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

Chick and Brain rating 5 out of 5

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review

So there is no secret how crazy I am about my favorite cliffhanger duo Kennedy Fox, and man is this latest the best one ever. This has everything that we could ever look for and then some and I for one cannot wait to find out what happens next!

This is Dangerous is focused on Kayla, the third to the fearsome threesome that is impatiently waiting for her happily ever after. Kayla has not the most loving upbringing, but what she did not receive in her childhood she gives out in spades now that she is an adult. Logan is a brooding but sexy detective that has caught Kayla’s attention, however seems completely unavailable. Logan and Kayla both have secrets that they have never shared with anyone, but the draw they have toward one another is unbearable. When they bring their walls down and share their secrets, will they finally be able to be each others happily ever after?

We have been on this epic journey with these characters for the long haul. K&F finally bring the story to a close and we are all not wanting to let these characters go but man are they going to go out with a bang. Kayla and Logan are two peas in a pod. Both characters have desperately desired each other for a long time and we are finally able to watch those desires blossom into something more. This love story has been a slow burn romance that culminates in this novel, with some questions answered and new ones posed.

That ending! Kennedy Fox is the queen of cliffhangers! I for one am waiting on pins and needles for the next installment. I need to know what happens next. I will also never be able to eat donuts again and NOT think of Logan and Kayla


Until next time,
