The anticipated conclusion of the Logan & Kayla saga in the Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo under the USA Today bestselling author 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?


Kayla Sinclair is a saint and real life Angel.
She wears her heart on her sleeve and inspires me to be a better person.
Rescuing dogs, feeding the homeless, volunteering at the local food pantry are just a few of the ways she gives back to others, although no one has ever been there for her.
Falling for her was inevitable, losing her will destroy me.

Letting someone in didn't come easy, but she made me want to try for the first time in years.
Her bubbling personality and kind spirit make it impossible to forget a girl like her.
But when tragedy strikes and she loses all memory that our relationship ever existed, my worst nightmare comes to life.

I'll do anything to remind her of the love we shared. I know it'll be an uphill battle, but I won't walk away without a fight. Whoever said all is fair in love and war never played by my rules.

Checkmate, Angel.

**This is book two in the Logan & Kayla Saga ~ a second-chance romance. Must read This is Dangerous first. However, you don't need to read any of the other Checkmate duet series to enjoy this one, but it's recommended as they are both introduced in the earlier books.**

The minute this book showed up on my iPad, a couple of things went through my mind. First of all, this is the last book in the entire Checkmate Duet Series and I didn’t want it to end! I’ve grown so attached to these characters that I didn’t know what the hell I would do with myself once it was all over. Second of all, I knew this book would BREAK ME! I knew that the second I read the last few pages in book one of Logan and Kayla’s story. I didn’t even get to the second page before my heart was breaking in two for these beautiful characters. Lastly, I knew the minute it was over, I was going to want to read the entire series over again, and really…who has time for that?! This just proves that the ladies of Kennedy Fox has done their job and has done it extremely well. Not only am I addicted to these characters and their stories, I’m addicted to the writing style that these two authors have created together. It’s beyond seamless! It flows with perfection and it’s just an effortless read! 

“My mind may not remember, but my heart does.”

I can’t say much about the plot of the book because I don’t want to give anything away, but I can’t wait to read the thoughts of other fans out there. I want to shout from the rooftops how amazing this whole series is…how completely unforgettable it has become to me. If you’re not used to reading a book in one sitting, you need to get used to it fast because I DARE YOU to walk away from Logan and Kayla once you start. It’s almost impossible!

This second chance romance is heart-wrenchingly beautiful, sexy, sweet, and ADDICTIVE! You will need tissues. You will need access to a cold shower. You will need a friend to vent to when it gets tough. And needing these things is exactly what makes this book and this series an absolute MUST READ ROMANCE!

Book #1 in the Logan and Kayla Saga

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.
