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.**

Review by Lisa Kane 
Is it possible two people with broken pasts can feel whole again together?

Kayla Sinclair has had a thing for Logan Knight for a long time. They have mutual friends, run into each other all the time and yet Logan has always friend zoned Kayla. He puts all his time and energy into his job as a detective. But he is hiding something.

However, this time he forgot to mention one tiny detail of why he’s so guarded and reluctant to date anyone.

But Kayla being a good snoop, discovers what he’s hiding. It’s not earth shattering, and she can certainly deal with it. After all, she has a whopper of a secret that she’s never told.

He’s hoarding secrets like a double layer of Spanx and there’s barely enough wiggle room to breathe, but that doesn’t mean I’m not up for the challenge.

Logan has a lot of baggage, but I think he makes way too much of it. It has been six years since he was involved with someone and this guy acts like he’s never been in a relationship. Of course, he finally gives in to the attraction he’s long felt for Kayla but then he blows hot and cold.

“It’s not the right time for me to date anyone and if we were to get involved, I’d just fuck it up and everything would be ruined.”

Kayla has turned her life around. Shuffled from foster home to foster home sixteen times (!) while she was growing up, she has made a good living for herself. She has a great job as decorator, wonderful friends and is proud of what she has accomplished. So why she tries so hard to get Logan is beyond me-I would have given up a long time ago. She tries dating other guys, but her heart is stuck on Logan. He is trying to work through his own pile of demons, but it’s slow going. There’s some intrigue with the case he’s working on that spills over to Kayla’s life.

“This is exactly why we can’t get involved. I don’t share my past with anyone.”

This is a duet, so obviously it’s a cliffy. While I have adored the previous books from Kennedy Fox, this one felt a little flat to me. I just didn’t relate to Logan and thought Kayla put her own feelings second to his too many times. However, I am still interested in the story to want to read the sequel.

When you find a girl who makes you feel normal and wanted again, you grab on tight and you don’t let go.
