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.**

Every part of my body is on fire, fueled by the electricity between Logan and me as his lips glide across the softness of mine. The low hum in my stomach aches when he pulls us apart, and I fight the urge to press my lips back to his.

His lips are red and swollen, probably just like mine are right now. I don’t know what got into him, but Logan and I have never, ever kissed before. Hell, we’ve slow danced before at weddings, but nothing this intimate—ever.

“I think that did the trick,” he finally says, catching his breath. Fred left over two minutes ago.

“Yeah, I think so.” I take a small step back, trying to act unaffected, but the hard beating in my chest gives me away. I know he feels it, too. I just don’t understand why he pretends he doesn’t. “Thanks for your help,” I say, breaking the tension.

“Anytime. It was fun watching him sweat.” He grins, rocking back and forth on his feet, gripping the coffee cup tight in his hand. He’s just as nervous as I am.

“Don’t you get enough of that at work?” I tease.

“Can never have enough.” He flashes a pleased smile.

“You do have some sick fetish for that, don’t you?”

“I do. Gets all my juices flowing,” he quips.

And just like that, we’re back to our platonic friendship as if the kiss never happened. However, the ache between my legs knows otherwise. It happened, and it was hot as hell.

“What are you doing on a dating website anyway?” he asks after I grab another cup of coffee and sit across from him at the table.

“How else am I supposed to meet guys?” I ask, although it’s really a rhetorical question. “Guys in bars just want sex and one-night stands. I have a strict no dating guys from work rule and everyone else is taken or just wants me to be apart of their menage a trois.”

His brows lift. “What kind of people are you hanging out with?”

I sigh. “This city literally has no available, decent, single men. I might as well just move to another planet. Like Pluto. Get as far away from here as possible.”

“Actually, Pluto isn’t a planet anymore,” he tells me matter-of-factly.

I blink, unamused. “Great. I can’t escape this damn city.”

He chuckles, and I only slightly hate that he finds my pathetic dating life entertaining. “You’re still young. No need to panic until you’re like…thirty.”

I grab a piece of his pastry and throw it at him. “You suck.” I scowl. “I’m twenty-six, which means I’m almost thirty, and almost thirty means I should be with the guy I’m planning on marrying. Otherwise, I’ll be forty, my looks will be gone, my boobs will have fallen to my feet, and I’ll have gray hair,” I ramble, knowing I’m over exaggerating, but right now it feels true. Every date is a disaster. More than the last.

Book Review: Losing Her by K.S. Marshall

Wow! What can I say about this book? This is not the first book I’ve read by this author, in fact, I read her debut novel The Incidental Affair and loved it as well! K.S. Marshall has easily become one of my favorite romance authors, she hooked me from the very beginning!

Portrait of a beautiful african american fashion model

Alina comes from a prominent family. Growing up she has been in the spotlight and groomed to her mother’s specifications. She must act a certain way, she dates who her mother wants her to date, she must always act like a lady. Wear this. Talk like that. Yada-yada-yada (I mean come on!). It get’s to be oppressive, and one night she runs away.

Derrik is running from his past and has been hired as a private investigator for the Prescott family to look into the family itself to find anything that could potentially harm Thomas (Alina’s father) during the race for Mayor, but with Alina’s runaway stunt, Derrik is now on a mission to bring her home. So begins our little love story!

Derrick

Ah! Such a romantic book! But you know…it wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies. There’s always gotta be that one PERSON that FUCKS EVERYTHING UP! Actually, there are two people, and just thinking about it makes me want to bash something. Although…Derrik does that a lot for me. He is such a perfect gentleman!

I thought I was going to receive my happy ending, but with all duets, there is always a cliff hanger, always a twist, always something to snatch that HEA (happily ever after) away from my grabby little hands.

I can’t wait for the second book, because there is still so much I want  need to know!

K.S. Marshall wow’d me again, and I hope she wow’s you too. The characters were believable, the sex scenes were on point (fans self) and just over-all the entire book was just a neat little bundle of joy.

About the Author ❤

K.S. Marshall is a nearly thirty-something writer, living and loving in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her boyfriend, two kids and two fur babies. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she’s lived all over the United States and considers herself an adopted Texan at heart.

Labeled as “super emotional” and “dramatic” very early on in life, it became second nature to journal and write. K.S. realized her overactive imagination and her affinity for creating stories from thin air helped her as a writer. She is drawn to character that are relatable; people that you might know or find within yourself. She enjoys a good plot twist and using elements that have you anxiously turning the page to figure out what happens next.

She loves interacting with readers in her Facebook Group: XO by K.S.

Book Review: Checkmate: This is Effortless by Kennedy Fox

33820516This is Effortless by Kennedy Fox

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I know I am a day late posting this, but it couldn’t be helped! School has been frantic as the semester winds down! I graduate next Saturday, I am so excited!

Kennedy Fox is becoming one of my new favorite authors! I am sad that this is the end for Drew and Courtney but I am so excited for the next installment in the Checkmate Duet series! I am so glad that certain characters will be getting their own duet!

The author asked for no spoilers so I am trying not to hint at anything so I am being very vague: I was disappointed in the way one particular scene went. I felt it was slightly rushed and way more dramatic then it needed to be, it didn’t fit well with the atmosphere of the book.

Other than that I thought Drew and Courtney’s final installment was great. I laughed, cried, and felt so many emotions. I just love friends to lover romances. And I’m glad the couple’s relationship went in stages, it made their relationship relatable.

I can’t wait for more from this author!

Introducing book 2 in the new Checkmate Duet Series from a secret duo of romance authors who teamed up under the USA Today Bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox! This friends to lovers romance will have you swooning and laughing from the first to the last page! Are you ready to play the game?

Courtney Bishop is as sugary sweet as her famous blueberry muffins.
Southern belle at heart, Cali girl by choice.
She barged into my life and easily became my best friend.

All was great as roommates and just friends, but then I fell for the girl who could chop firewood, deliver baby calves, and bail hay without breaking a sweat.
She’s the perfect mixture of sugar and spice, and I love her.

Being more than friends and trying to build our future isn’t as easy as it sounds.
Moving forward and creating memories is all I want for us, but when the past continues to come back and haunt me, I’m not so sure she’ll stay for the ride.

Loving her is easy, but losing her will break me. Burning passion combined with an undeniable chemistry constantly pushes and pulls us together. In the end, I’ll prove we’re worth the fight, even when the game is far from over.

Checkmate, sweetheart.

Book Review: Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige

32145091Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The ONLY reason why it took me two days to read this book is because of it being Easter weekend. I would have finished the same night, but alas, I had to get up early Saturday and go do Easter things with the Fam. Bam.

Anyway! Paige delivers yet ANOTHER captivating book that had be jumping back and forth between hating Donovan and wanting to love him. I don’t know what it is about obsessive girls in Laurelin Paige’s world and fucked up men who rule them, but the stories work and leave me aching for more.

I can’t wait to start the second part to this duet, and I kind of wish I waited until the second book was out before reading DFRM so I wouldn’t feel so incomplete. I have a an obsessive disorder to, Obsessive Reading Disorder (ORB) which doesn’t allow me to wait for shit when it comes to new releases.

Hands down, 5* and to those who think that Donovan is an abusive narcissist or borderline sociopath… you’re probably right, but I don’t care because Donovan is hot and has great sex scenes. Besides, the story isn’t over. There is still hope for him yet!

Book Review: The Incidental Affair by K.S. Marshall

41ugxLiq7oLThe Incidental Affair by K.S. Marshall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

KS Marshall is a new author to me, and I’m glad I discovered her, thanks to an author take over in a book group! She did not disappoint.

The Incidental Affair had me feeling so many emotions throughout the book until I finally just felt happy. I so needed an happily ever after in a standalone book that wrapped up nicely, and that’s what this book did for me.

For someone who is against cheating and having affairs, I was cautious when starting this because I didn’t know what kind if situation lead to this affair. After reading it, I completely understand why Danielle did what she did. Without giving too much away, I want to say that Marcus is a complete controlling ass and what he did was even worse and he deserved what he got.

I was disappointed when the author didn’t expand on Marcus and Danielle’ s separation. I would have loved to see the look on his face, although I think I would have had a heart attack because he is such a brutish character. Anyway, I gave this book four stars because I felt that there were several scenes that were glossed over that could have been expanded on. I absolutely loved this book and won’t be the last that i read from this author!
