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.
*TiD is book 1 in the Logan & Kayla saga of the Checkmate Duet Series & can be read as a standalone.*
Kennedy Fox gives us another OUTSTANDING introduction in their brand new Checkmate Duet, featuring the highly anticipated story of Kayla and Logan. If you haven’t heard of Kennedy Fox, all I have to say is WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN? You absolutely NEED to get in on this phenomenon! The characters are incredibly AMAZING! The storylines are insanely ENTERTAINING! The writing is absolutely ADDICTING! To keep this series going with a third saga, and in the meantime, keeping their readers interested, involved, and enamored, is just an incredible accomplishment.
Not only will they completely SWEEP you off of your feet with the amazing connection between Kayla and Logan…Kennedy Fox will keep you on your toes with the action, adventure, and entertainment factor of this first book. Don’t forget this is a duet, so there WILL be a cliffhanger, but the wait that this dynamic duo puts us through, is so damn delicious! I knew the cliffhanger would be EPIC, but I had NO IDEA it was going to go the way it went. With impeccable and seamless writing that these two authors produce, I can’t imagine you not becoming immediately ADDICTED to their brand of second chance romance.
“Please don’t. Don’t kiss me if you just plan to leave again.”
“Angel, I plan to do a lot more than kiss you this time. You okay with that?”
Talk about swoon city! Logan Knight is absolutely DELICIOUS! Don’t get me wrong, he will frustrate the ever-living HELL out of you, but in the end, he is just an all-around GOOD guy. He’s one of the good ones and Kayla noticed that from the very start. This is why she is so persistent with him and the future that they could have. I love the fight that Kayla has in her. She is so strong and yet so vulnerable when it comes down to Logan. She is determined, loyal, and sassy…Logan’s perfect match. Logan just has to let down his guard and trust that he can be what Kayla needs, that he won’t break her, that he won’t bring her down when his past comes to haunt him everyday.
“Fucking Christ, Kayla. I’ve been fighting this for way too goddamn long.”
“About time you came to your senses.”
The struggle is real and heartbreaking, but the journey to their happily ever after has just begun. I’m so exciting to get to their conclusion. I need their HEA to be EPIC and I know Kennedy Fox will do them justice, and give their readers EXACTLY what they want. I’m not worried at all, but I will be waiting on the edge of my seat for what’s to come. Put your trust into Kennedy Fox. They will not disappoint you. They will feed your addiction, of that I’m completely sure of.
