Publisher's Summary

Synopsis: Introducing Audiobook One in the Logan & Kayla saga of the Checkmate series from a secret duo of romance authors who teamed up under the USA Today best-selling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox! This second-chance romance will sweep you off your feet from the very first chapter, and have you craving donuts by the final chapter! 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 his 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.

    Story
    "My Two Pennies"

    I am hooked on Lia Langola and her narrations. This woman captivates me from beginning to the very end. The emotions that are put into each line has you feeling these characters more then you thought you could, I'm hanging on each and every word spoken. I have never wanted donuts as much as I have while being in Logan and Kayla's world, the feels for their story is unbelievable and I just can't get enough. Kennedy Fox is one helluva team and with each book in this series they top themselves. Logan has a bit of a dark past and when you find out what happened it will absolutely break your heart and you just want to be right there by his side for moral support. Kayla hasn't had an easy past herself and yet she is such an incredible giver and so open hearted. The chemistry between the two of them is undeniable and you want to just scream to give into the feelings already. I was consumed by this book and then BAM! Yep, jaw dropped event that had me saying WHAT?! You know what I'm talking about, those love to hate cliffhangers. Have no fear because the final book to this series and book 2 for Logan and Kayla This Is Beautiful is available now. I know that I'm jumping into the final book because this is a MUST READ series. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

    "Absolutely Amazing!!!!"

    I loved listening to this story so much!! Its such a beautifully written book with a great storyline and characters! I read it first, but sometimes its fun to listen to a book too. Lia Langola is so great at doing both parts, her voice is so easy to listen to. She makes the funny parts really stand out. I will definitely choose to listen to more books read by her!

    Story
    "I still want to hear more!"

    Logan and Kayla are two people with their own ideas about relationships. Logan does not want a commitment because of his last relationship. The only s trying commitment he has is to his daughter, whom he would do anything for. Kayla does not date men she works with. This rule has worked for her, until now. Logan has set his eyes on Kayla but has not made a strong move. When he sees another man interested in Kayla, he ups his game. Kayla has always liked Logan but she also stuck to her co worker rule. She starts to break that rule as Logan gets closer.

    This story follows the budding romance of Logan and Kayla as well as the relationship Logan has with his daughter that he is so desperate to continue. It tugs at your heart strings. It plays with your emotions as you feel Logan and Kayla's anger, pain, rejection and growing love. It leaves you wanting more.....now!

    Lia Langola is perfect in this sweet romance. Ms Langola's voice can be sweet for Kayla and just as husky for Logan. She brings the characters to life and helps you really feel as the characters are feeling. There is no problem knowing who is talking, as Ms Langola expertly has a different voice/ pitch for each character. This book is a listen not to miss!

    Lover of happy endings (the romance book kind) and the not-so-happy endings (the murder mystery book kind).

    Story
    "Good people dealing with the hand life dealt them"

    DUN DUN DUUUUN!!! Well, first thing you have to know is this book ends with a cliff hanger. There’s a second book due out in a few days of me writing this review, so the wait won’t be long.

    I listened to the audio version narrated by Lia Langola and enjoyed it. The emotions portrayed by the characters come through the narration, making for a believable story. Lia does a great job in differentiating characters, with both male and female voices. Her voice for Logan’s young daughter Skylar is lovely. If this child existed in real life, you’d want to pick her up and give her a big squishy hug.

    Onto the story, as mentioned up front this book ends in a cliff hanger. Having said that, this first part offers a fairly complete story.

    I liked both Logan and Kayla. They are good people who are dealing with the hand life dealt them in the best ways they know how. There were attracted to each other, and even though there were moments of doubt, we see them get together and start building a relationship. I appreciated that the book was written with a dual point of view because during times of indecision, it helped us understand both Logan and Kayla.

    There are several side characters, including couples from previous books in the Checkmate series, but they do not overtake this story. It’s definitely about Logan and Kayla.

    Story
    "You Donut Want to Miss This Book!"
    What did you love best about Checkmate: This is Dangerous?

    Logan and Kayla of course! They have such amazing chemistry and I loved how organic their relationship felt. They were both very relatable and perfectly imperfect.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Checkmate: This is Dangerous?

    One word... donuts. I don't think I will EVER look at donuts the same way again! I loved how "creative" the authors were with incorporating Kayla's love of the donut and other fun activities! ;) The imagery is both laugh out loud hilarious and so very sexy and delicious!


    Which character – as performed by Lia Langola – was your favorite?

    I really loved Logan! He is so closed off and mysterious when we first meet him. Watching Kayla break down those walls made for the perfect slow burn friends to lovers romance. I am always impressed by Lia Langola's narration, especially her male voices. She brings so much depth and emotion to the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I both laughed and cried with this one! The ending especially made my heart break!


    Any additional comments?

    Speaking of that ending, listeners should note that this is part 1 of Logan and Kayla's story, so it does end in a cliffhanger. The next book, Checkmate: This is Beautiful, is available now though (I think the audio is coming), so you don't have to wait for the conclusion. Just be aware that this story is a duet.
