Checkmate : This is Dangerous (Logan & Kayla #1) [Checkmate Duet #3] Book Review


Amazon | GoodReads

Goodreads Synopsis

“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”


My Review

Kayla Sinclair is just the sweetest and I totally wish we were friends 😄 She had a rough life growing up being bounced from foster home to foster home, never having a family to call her own. As an adult she is an interior designer who spends her free time voluntering at the local animal shelter and soup kitchen. Kayla is a dog owner with a heart of gold who is just looking for her prince charming.

“She’s not just the ideal woman—she’s the perfect woman. Equal parts sweet and sassy”

Logan Knight  “Detective godsend, mysterious, brooding. He’s every girl’s wet dream.” He also happens to be a wonderful father to his beautiful little girl Skyler. He has alot of demons from his past that still effect his day to day. Nightmares and PTSD cause him to keep his personal walls up high.

” Not many people in my life know what it’s like to risk their life for our country and to fight for their life every day overseas. Many people don’t know how close I was to losing everything.”

After a few passionate mind blowing kisses, Logan can no longer deny his feelings for Kayla. He can’t stomach her being with someone else and finally steps up. Their chemistry is explosive and they can’t get enough eachother. They start spending more and more time together and slowly start sharing bits and pieces of their past but not all of it.

 “Logan takes my cheek in his hand just as our mouths crash together, but this is no accident. My fingers instinctively thread through his hair, and our kiss deepens even further as our breaths become more ragged.”

 “I want you. I want it fast. Slow. Hard. Bent over. Against the wall. I want it all night long. In the morning. In the shower and the kitchen. I want you to break me, Logan. I’ve never wanted anyone else as badly as I want you.”

Once again this checkmate novel ends in a cliffhanger that I completely did not see coming!!!
