The anticipated conclusion of the Logan & Kayla saga in the Checkmate Duet Series from duo of romance authors 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.

*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*

**This is book w 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.**

Bravo and hats off to the duo that is Kennedy Fox with this duet. You stole my breath at the end of This Is Dangerous and you totally revived me with this book. In all actually, you made my heart sing with this book.

This Is Beautiful is truly that – simply beautiful and heart warming. Can I just say for the record that Logan is the man we all wish we could have in our lives – he made my ovaries burst! This man is truly dedicated to Kayla and stops at nothing to prove that to her; even if it means breaking his own heart so that she can truly enjoy life once more.

Kayla loses the last two years of her life, which means she doesn’t remember Logan at all. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Imagine what it would be like to return to your life and remembering nothing of the past two years – talk about feeling like you are in a time warp. I can’t even imagine what it’s like knowing two years passed by and having no recollection of any it, except for pictures and what people tell you.

Logan is torn between wanting to show Kayla how much they loved each other, how strong they were together and letting her figure it out all on her own. Their roles are reversed now – Kayla did the chasing the first time around and now it’s Logan trying to win the love of his life back. The physical attraction is something neither can deny, but when Kayla struggles to feel that deep love she apparently once had for Logan, things become very difficult for them. Do you stay and try to force those feelings to come back or cut your losses and move on?

Lyra and Brooke (Kennedy Fox duo), you two broke me with this book, but in a good way. It’s been quite some time that I have felt such deep emotion with two characters – my heart was weeping for Logan – I could feel his agony over trying to find his angel within Kayla. And Kayla – I just can’t imagine being her in shoes, ever. To lose a chunk of your life like it never happened just truly sucks. But in the midst of all that heartache, you made my heart sing and smile.

Bravo Ladies. This is definitely my favorite couple and duet of this series. A beautiful ending to an amazing series and the best duet within the series!!
