After reading a really good romance I'm often left wishing that I could read it all over again for the first time. Well in This is Beautiful Kennedy Fox gave me that opportunity and it get's an A+ from me. Logan and Kayla had to rediscover their love for one another throughout this book and took readers on that journey with them. Not only did they get a chance to fall in love all over again, I got a chance to experience it for a second time. It m

I'm in love with a fictional man! Logan is so fracking amazing. I want him to be real so we can run off into the sunset, get married, and have lots of babies. Shhhh....Don't tell the hubster. LOL

But seriously, Logan is so yummy. After Kayla's accident, he tries really hard to do the right thing. He wants to stay close and offer her the support she needs, but also follow the advice of the medical professionals. He basically puts her needs before his, as any great guy will do. He was the highligh

5 'Knight in shining armor' Stars!

I can’t believe this is the last duet in this series! It seems like yesterday that we met this amazing crew and now it’s time to say goodbye to all of them. I do have to say: well done, Kennedy Fox! Because Logan and Kayla’s duet was the perfect way to end this. Their love story was so beautiful to read, I did not want it to end.

Since I read both books together (because I don’t deal well with waiting and cliffhangers..), this review will be about the whole duet.

What a bittersweet feeling to be at the end of the Checkmate series! It was a long and crazy ride, but I'm glad I went through that journey! I have to say that even though I loved Logan and Kayla, I wasn't amused with the cliffie on the previous book and how it took over the majority of this final book. It's probably the thing that brought so much drama and angst and I wasn't crazy about it. But I did love the ending. Even though I'd rather have a closure with the whole gang together. Maybe a no ...more
~*~ 4 1/2 STARS ~*~

The minute this book showed up on my iPad, a couple of things went through my mind. First of all, this is the last book in the entire Checkmate Duet Series and I didn’t want it to end! I’ve grown so attached to these characters that I didn't know what the hell I would do with myself once it was all over. Second of all, I knew this book would BREAK ME! I knew that the second I read the last few pages in book one of Logan and Kayla’s story. I didn’t even get to the second page

aaaaaaaand the series is finally over!

I'm so sad to say goodbye to the characters and their stories because I loved them so much. I did want a little bit more from this final book though (hence why I knocked off a star) but it was still amazing and I completely flew through it.

If you're looking for a classic trashy romance series then you NEED to read these books. They're incredible and you won't regret it.

And this marks the end of the series.

That was as good as the previous book; however, I wanted more. I expected more. I can't pinpoint what was lacking, but regardless, the book was still really good. Now that the series is done, I'm quite sad because I've grown to love the characters over the past year and this is the end.

Logan and Kayla are great characters. Logan is dreamy, selfless and just genuinely good and caring. Kayla is one of the best NA MCs I've come across so far; she's caring and lo

Standing ovation for the incredible writing duo that is Kennedy Fox! These ladies have written a very entertaining series of duets that kept me glued to my screen and gasping for breath with the best/worst cliffhangers imaginable!

Checkmate: This is Dangerous picks up directly where the previous book ended. I was swept right back into the tangle of emotions that book one had left me in. My stomach was in knots, I couldn't believe such a thing had happened to my beloved characters. And I couldn

Please do NOT read this review if you haven't read the first book about those 2!
There was a HUGE cliffy in book #1 and book #2 takes off where the first one ended...

Kayla hit her head and now she doesn't remember the last two years - including Logan.
He's completely shocked that the woman he loves no longer recognizes him. BUT, she's still hugely attracted to him, so there might be a chance for them.
Logan tries to be there for her as a good friend while Kayla tries to get her me
Finishing this book has been nothing short of bittersweet. Reading, experiencing and devouring the conclusion to the entire Checkmate Duet Series has made me feel so sentimental, so giddy and blue all at the same time. I just couldn't believe we've reached the end of the line for these three couples we've stuck by from the beginning. Though I'm really glad K & F gave us that kind of epilogue in this book, because I think that truly helped me cope and breathe easier after. It finally tied eve ...more

What a sweet conclusion to the Checkmate series! Checkmate: This is Beautiful is book 2 in Logan and Kayla's story and should only be read after Checkmate: This is Dangerous.

The book picks up right where the last one left off and your heart will hurt all over again with this painful reminder of how book 1 ended.


Of all the Checkmate books, I felt like this one was the most real in it's emotions. You can easily imagine yourself in both Logan or Kayla's position and how incredibly difficult it wou

This was THE PERFECT ending to Kayla and Logan's story! GAH! I just felt SO many emotions with this couple from start to finish, at times I seriously could not breathe. That's Kennedy Fox for you huh?!

This was the final chapter in the Checkmate Duet Series and everything I felt from Kayla and Logan was just the entire series TEN FOLD! Basically I was eating, sleeping, and breathing donuts and dogs until I finished this book

I wish I could give this book 10 stars because it deserves all the stars. Kennedy fox has now become my all time favorite author and I can’t wait to read more books from them.

3-3.5 stars!! There's some unnecessary drama here and there, but overall I really did enjoy Kayla and Logan's ending. It's sweet, a little angsty, and verrry dramatic. Fans of the series will love this Checkmate duet finale! For me, this might be my fav of the series. Review to come!

Thanks to the author for generously providing me an ARC to review.

How is this series already over? I feel like I just discovered Kennedy Fox yesterday and their fun, quirky series is coming to an end. After reading the ending of This is Dangerous, I have been DYING to read the conclusion to Kayla and Logan's story!

Kayla Sinclair has always been on her own and felt a passion for giving back to others. The moment Logan Knight appeared in her life, Kayla couldn't help but fall hard for her knight in shining armor. But when tragedy strikes and Kayla loses all mem

This was a wonderful end to this Wonderful Series. Logan and Kayla have stolen my heart. Watching them fall in love in "This is Dangerous" was so wonderful and the end left me heartbroken. Kennedy Fox took Second Chance romance to a whole new level. With Kayla's memory gone Logan has to win her back. It went from Kayla chasing Logan to Logan chasing Kayla. My heart broke for Logan so much in this book. I felt so bad for him and also for

Oh my gosh, Kennedy Fox, how dare you ladies put me on an emotional rollercoaster!

I loved all 3 couples so much, but Logan and Kayla are definitely my favorite out of the bunch. I just love their chemistry together. This is Dangerous left us with a MAJOR cliffhanger, and thankfully Lyra and Brooke did not disappoint with the conclusion in This is Beautiful. My emotions were all over the place. My heart was hurting for Logan and Kayla. I cried. a lot. But I loved e

Kennedy Fox has done it again, guys! Another perfect ending, another amazing book full of twists and turns (mostly of my heart).

This is Beautiful picks up where This is Dangerous left off, with our girl Kayla waking up and Logan being shocked about what happened next.

I can't believe this series is over! A year ago, I got a message from Kennedy Fox, who I had never heard of before asking if I wanted a copy of This is War. And what a journey it's been! This book was good, some parts a little rushed, but overall these duets have been really entertaining! The outcome of some of the things that happened made me proud of Kayla. Both Logan and Kayla went through some tough times in this one, but now that these characters found their ending, I am so ready for the Bi ...more

This is Beautiful is the conclusion to Logan and Kayla’s duet and the last book in the Checkmate series. It was bittersweet. While I am happy that this series ended on a high note (and am super excited for the next series by Kennedy Fox), I fell in love with these characters and it is hard to say goodbye. I think this book was a good conclusion to an amazingly addicting series! With that being said, I HIGHLY recommend NOT reading any reviews for This is Beautiful prior to reading it!

You will need to have read Checkmate: This is Dangerous prior to reading This is Beautiful, as things start up right where Dangerous ended.

I am not going to lie, I have terrible bookzheimer's so I did go back and read the last chapter of Dangerous before starting this one, and I am glad I did as I had forgotten where the first book ended.

And when I started Beautiful,I was thrown right back into Logan-Land and didn't want to leave.

(Runs & hides before i get lynched!!)
but this duet has got me hooked i've already downloaded the other two duets and i can't wait to see whats to come from these two amazing ladies.

Bravo and hats off to the duo that is Kennedy Fox with this duet. You stole my breath at the end of This Is Dangerous and you totally revived me with this book. In all actually, you made my heart sing with this book.

This Is Beautiful is truly that - simply beautiful and heart warming. Can I just say for the record that Logan is the man we all wish we could have in our lives - he made my ovaries burst! This man is truly dedicated to Kayla and stops at nothing to prove that to her; even if it mean

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!

The writing duo of Kennedy Fox, hits it out of the park with the last book in the Checkmate series. This is book 2, so be sure to read This is Dangerous first, because This is Beautiful, picks up right where book 1 ended. In the middle of one of the most heart wrenching scenes. (not necessary to read all the checkmate series before these 2, but it is helpful as the characters are introduced earlier).
