Review: This is Dangerous by Kennedy Fox PLUS FREE BOOK!

 

review

A few months ago I came across the anonymous writing duo that is known as Kennedy Fox. I was curious to see what all the hype was about, and wondered if I would even enjoy this genre of writing. Well, my previous worries were completely unfounded as I binged both Duets in a matter of days. I was hooked. Absolutely-110%-no looking back obsessed.

The waiting game for this third and final duet was TORTURE. But fortunately enough, I was accepted to be part of the Kennedy Fox InstaFam. Not only do I get to help promote this wonderful series and interact with fellow Checkmate-obsessed bibliophiles, but I also got an ARC of This Is Dangerous, the first instalment in the final duet.

This is Dangerous is the first book in Kayla and Logan’s story. We were previously introduced to these characters in the other Checkmate Duets (I highly recommend reading those first!) and I was so excited to finally experience their love story. Boy was it worth the wait! I think this could be my favourite couple! Who doesn’t love a good story involving dogs, donuts and detectives hmm?

Kayla and Logan relationship follows  the “second chance at love” trope, and I think I find these stories the most intriguing. Instead of an insta-love relationship, you have a slow burn romance that keeps you on your toes and begging for the characters to finally act upon their internal desires.

Without giving too much away (because seriously, you need to experience all of the #TeamLayla goodness on your own) Kennedy Fox brings to you a book series that is the perfect mix of romance, sexy times, quirky humour and fan-appreciated pop culture references (FYI – Sarah .J Maas was referenced and I fangirled so hard). All of these things combine to create an amazing story that the reader can relate to.  I beg you to give this series a chance so you can become as immersed in this world as I am! We need more Kennedy Fox converts in the world!

PS. The only thing I think that I can complain about in regards to this series is the fact that I have to wait til SEPTEMBER to read the second book. Let’s just say the ending of This is Dangerous was completely bonkers and I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS RIGHT MEOW. Do you hear me Kennedy?!

 

Also did you hear me when I said FREE BOOK!? For a limited time, This is War (Book One of the first Checkmate Duet) is FREE. That’s right… FREE! And This is Love is only 99 cents! This is the perfect way to experience the magic of Kennedy Fox. Free books = the perfect motivator in my world!

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.**

LOST RIDER by Harper Sloan

April 25, 2017  is a good day. In fact – it’s a great day! There are two lovely birthday’s to celebrate! First of all, I would like to wish my sister a very happy birthday (😘)! The next birthday is the book birthday of Lost Rider by Harper Sloan!

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced reader’s copy of this book, and boy am I glad that I did! This was such a fun and enjoyable read! It was the first book I’ve read of Harper’s, and I’ve since devoured more of her early works. Her writing style is addicting and binge-worthy. If you’re looking for a Western contemporary romance with a relatable “second chance at love” trope, then I would definitely suggest adding Lost Rider to your TBR. There was just enough conflict to keep you on your toes, but the rest of the book was filled with Southern charm and hospitality. Add in a whole lot of sizzle and it’s a book you can’t put down. Oh! And the leading lady works at a bakery, aptly named the PieHole that specializes in … you guessed it – pies! I was literally craving all the sugar in the world while reading this book … So have a seat in your porch swing, pour yourself a glass of whiskey, and get ready to settle down in the South.

Review: Sweet Addiction series by J. Daniels

IMG_4775

Time for some honesty here: I’ve been binge reading books on my phone via the Kindle app. I can’t remember the last time I read a book with real pages! (Shocking I know!) I never thought I would enjoy eBooks as much as I have, but they are so easy to access! I also feel that I read books quicker this way? Now all I need to get is a Kindle or iPad, because my phone screen is not nearly big enough!

So, this all being said, I’ve been armed with a handful of recommended authors and the “1-click buy” button on Amazon has become my new best friend. Enter J.Daniels. I previously reviewed her Alabama Summer series, which I also highly recommend! Sweet Addiction is another one of her trilogies, and the series title says it all – these books were incredibly ADDICTING! I think I read them all under 48 hours? If you haven’t noticed by now, I love binge reading books!

The Books

This series is a trilogy, with the reading order being: Sweet Addiction, Sweet Possession and Sweet Obsession.  Here are some brief synposis’ of the books:

Sweet Addiction 

“Wedding hookups never amount to anything. Those who partake in this wicked little activity know the rules. Get in. Get laid. Get out. There’s no expectation of a relationship. It is what it is. Dylan Sparks knows the rules. She’s familiar with the protocol. And she engages in the best sex of her life with a complete stranger at her ex-boyfriend’s wedding. Reese Carroll doesn’t care about the rules. He wants more than just one night with Dylan. And Dylan finds him too addicting to pass up. Sweet Addiction is the story of one woman’s struggle to keep things casual, and one man’s desire to never let her go.”

Sweet Possession

“From the author of the Alabama Summer series and the Dirty Deeds series, comes a sexy new companion novel to Sweet Addiction. A sassy, in-your-face baker. A panty-stealing, dirty-talking accountant. And a bathroom quickie that changed their lives forever. Wedding hookups never amount to anything. Unless that hookup knocks you on your ass. For Dylan Sparks and Reese Carroll, the big day can’t arrive soon enough. Dylan, stressed to the max from overbearing mothers and last minute preparations, struggles to keep her sanity. As for Reese, he’s fighting to not only keep his bride-to-be safe from creepy investors, but also to make it to the actual wedding day without losing his mind in the process. Throw in a crazy group of friends, and a bachelor/bachelorette party weekend getaway, and you have a recipe for the sweetest wedding of the year. Reese Carroll and Dylan Sparks cordially invite you to read Sweet Possession.”

Sweet Obsession 

“Everyone knows Brooke Wicks loves to have a good time. She’s not interested in getting serious, settling down, or limiting herself to one man. So when she meets the sexy, irresistible Mason King, she sees another opportunity to let loose and go wild. But the gorgeous Aussie isn’t interested in just a quick fling with Brooke, and if she wants to get into his bed, she’s going to have to do it on his terms. Loving fast and hard has always been Mason’s philosophy. He doesn’t want a meaningless connection, he wants it all, and he wants it with Brooke. When she makes her one desire known—to hit it and quit it—Mason wages a plan to ensure Brooke keeps coming back for more. Or so he hopes. Getting her attention was the easy part. Keeping it might be damn near impossible.”

The Boys: 

Once again, Daniels doesn’t disappoint in her ability to write strong and dominating male leads. But despite their tough exteriors, they are also able to be super caring and full of love. Reese Carroll is the epitome of a successful businessman. He’s confidant, strong, and extremely protective. Over the course of two novels (Addiction and Possession) we grow to love Reese for who he is, despite some of the flaws he may seem to have. Now if anyone knows of any attractive CPA’s … you can point me in their direction …

A super fun addition to this series was the fact that a character crossed over from her Alabama Summer series! In Sweet Obsession, we are reintroduced to Mason King – the hottie from down under. I always love it when authors do these cross overs and keep the stories connected, even if it’s in the tiniest way! It was neat to see where Mason’s storyline went.

The Babes: 

Dylan Sparks was a really fun character to read from her point of view. As the owner of a bakery, the reader was able to connect with her ambition and drive. She was also super funny and I remember laughing out loud a few times.

Brooks Wicks is the star of the third book in this series, and she works at Dylan’s bakery. She is known as a bit of a man-eater, and enjoys her single life to the fullest. However, once she meets Mason, we start to see her perspective change. She’s funny and sarcastic and a bit of a bad ass.

The Bottom Line: 

While all three of these stories suffered from some “insta-love” connections, I wasn’t turned off by that cliched story arc. It’s pretty much a necessary ingredient for these types of books, and I thought that some of the conflicts were realistic enough that it evened out. The books made me laugh, made me swoon, and made me fall in love with the characters! I highly recommend this series J. Daniels can pretty much do no wrong in my mind!

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
