Release Day Blitz and Book Review: Checkmate: This Is Dangerous (Logan & Kayla #1/Checkmate #5)

Title: Checkmate: This is Dangerous
Series: Checkmate Duet Series (Logan & Kayla, #1)
Author: Kennedy Fox
Designer & Photographer: Sara Eirew
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Trope: Second-Chance Romance
Release Date: July 6,  2017

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.**

My thoughts: 

We got a peak at Kayla and Logan from previous books in the Checkmate series and it was so great getting the nitty gritty of their story. Kayla had my heart after the prologue - she is such a good person and you can't help but just want her to be happy and get whatever she wants out of life - including Logan. And as we find out more about Logan, he becomes a very likable and sympathetic character as well. I just wanted them to be happy together! And they do find happiness together - once Logan accepts what they can be for each other. His level of love and commitment is breathtaking and such a departure from what he's been in the story before. His protectiveness and possessiveness over Kayla is a thing of my alpha male loving dreams. This installment of the Checkmate series and this couple is so different from the prior ones because both of the leads have pretty dark/serious elements in their pasts, that lead to them having pretty major secrets that can have a detrimental effect on their relationship. Throw in a major case for Detective Knight that has more than a few troubling overlapping circles and Checkmate: This Is Dangerous was a page turner in so many ways! I did not want to put it down once I started and though I knew it was going to end in a cliffhanger (it is a duet after all), I was CRUSHED when I got to the end and realized what was going to happen! I can't wait for September and I give Checkmate: This is Dangerous 4 out 5 wine glasses and it definitely solidified Kennedy Fox's place as a must read author for me.
