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.
*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.**
