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 s ...more

➳A knight in shining armor. A damsel in distress. That is what Kennedy Fox brings to the table in this malevolent love story that will have you questioning everything else the these duo authors have to write in the future…

➳Logan Knight, a detective and single father who finds the struggle of letting his guard down and avoids anything that is in the category of “commitment” after what happened with his former partner, who also gave him the most precious gift of all, his daughter. Though he is

**2 STARS**


It wasn't a bad book by any means but it was a bit cliche. I was kind of bored reading it but not annoyed so I felt like it deserved at least 2 STARS. There wasn't anything special about it.

I will say that I thought that Kayla's character was too much of a goody, goody. I mean the girl was basically a saint. From volunteering at homeless and dog shelters, the girl could do no wrong. It made her character unrealistic for me.

I didn't find anything special about

Logan Knight is a true Knight in shining armor, but of course with a pair of handcuffs. His character is by far one of the most swoon worthy gentleman of the Romance world. He was sweet and cared about Kayla's needs, and then he had that vulnerable side that makes you want to hold him all night long to make him feel better. I loved how friendly he was with Kayla, even when he was trying to push her away from wanting a romantic relations

Buddy read with Cait!


Honestly this series is so addictive, I love it! Kayla and Logan are just as lovable as Drew and Courtney, but I'm not yet sure who I love more. For now, it's still Drew and Courtney.

Second chance romance is one of my favorite tropes, and Kayla and Logan's story is exactly that, so I was super pumped. There's so much depth to each of the MCs and SO much happened in this book. I don't even know how Kennedy Fox w

I was so excited to read my first book by Kennedy Fox. And, Wow! I really enjoyed it! This Is Dangerous was so much more than I expected.

Here's the breakdown: Logan and Kayla have been orbiting around each other since they share mutual friends. Kayla makes it known that she's interested, but Logan continues to keep her at arms length. Well, you can only get thrown together so much before sparks fly, right?

What I really enjoyed: The book was completely unexpected. I have a knack for going in bli

Logan & Kayla.
We all remember them from the last books, and now it's time for their own HEA!
But it's not as easy as it could/should be.
The main reason why Logan doesn't want to start anything with Kayla is ... his daughter Skylar.
She's his everything! And her mom makes his live ... hell. She constantly needs more money, doesn't allow him enough time with Skylar, bad-mouths him to the girl and the other mothers in dance class. She's horrible. Logan wants nothing more than for Skylar and Maggi

Kayla Sinclair is a 26 yr. old woman who grew up in foster care, and lives in Sacramento, California where she works as an interior designer. She's never had lasting connections with anyone but pets or friends. Her friends are her chosen family & her fur babies are her life. Rescuing animals is her passion, & she volunteers at the animal shelter often. The only thing missing in her life is that special someone. She goes on one horrible date after anothe
4.5 "She's addicted to the D" stars!
[Take your mind off the gutter. I meant DONUTS and DOGS. Not the other D, you dirty little thang. Okay, fine. Maybe a little bit of all the above. ;)]

Oh my god, I think that cliffhanger officially broke my brain and drove me past the point of insanity because right when I reached that last page, when I read those last few words... I just couldn't, for the life of me, stop laughing. Maybe it was my way of coping, knowing we won't be getting the other half of
Are you freaking kidding me!?! That was so MEAN! But I expect nothing less from a Kennedy Fox ending. Review to come.

Kayla and Logan are briefly introduced in the previous Checkmate books, but This is Dangerous is the beginning of their love story. This was a perfect example of why friends to lovers is one of my favorite book tropes. Logan and Kayla have amazing chemistry from the beginning. Kayla has never been shy about her more than friendly feelings for Logan, and while Logan may share the
