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 2 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.**

Checkmate: This is Beautiful was an amazing finale to the Checkmate Duet series and Logan & Kayla’s duet, and one of my favorite second chance romances ever! I know I’ve probably said this in every review I’ve written for this series, but I absolutely loved Kennedy Fox’s writing style. This exceptionally talented author duo continues to blow me away with every book they write, and I honestly can’t get enough of the phenomenal and addicting storylines and characters they create. To say they’ve found a fan in me is a huge understatement. :)

   Logan and Kayla are one of my favorite couples – if not the favorite – in the Checkmate Duet series, and I immensely loved reading the conclusion to their story. It was heartbreaking and bittersweet at times, but all of it was completely worth it in the end. Logan and Kayla were both extremely sweet, caring, and had such big hearts, and I couldn’t help but fall even more in love with them in this book. I loved their personalities and chemistry together, and while This is Beautiful was different than what I was expecting, I enjoyed how their story and relationship progressed throughout. There were a few surprising and unexpected twists and turns that I didn’t see coming, but I enjoyed all of it nonetheless. If you’ve read This is Dangerous, the first book of Logan & Kayla’s duet, and you know how that one ended, you’ll understand what I mean. I loved getting to see all of the couples and a few other characters from past books in the series, although I would have loved to have seen them incorporated even more. Logan and Kayla’s duet was truly wonderful, and one I won’t forget anytime soon. The last several chapters of This is Beautiful were my absolute favorite, and I loved the conclusion to Logan and Kayla’s story.

   Checkmate: This is Beautiful was sexy, addicting, and swoon-worthy, and I couldn’t have been happier with the resolution to such an amazing and unforgettable couple’s story. I’m incredibly sad that the Checkmate Duet series is complete, but Kennedy Fox did a phenomenal job with Logan and Kayla’s duet, and I am so freaking excited to read what they write next! If you haven’t checked out any of their books yet, you should really do so ASAP!
