***
Kayla Sinclair is a saint and real life Angel.
She wears her heart on her sleeve and inspires me to be a better person.
Rescuing dogs, feeding the homeless, volunteering at the local food pantry are just a few of the ways she gives back to others, although no one has ever been there for her.
Falling for her was inevitable, losing her will destroy me.
Letting someone in didn’t come easy, but she made me want to try for the first time in years.
Her bubbling personality and kind spirit make it impossible to forget a girl like her.
But when tragedy strikes and she loses all memory that our relationship ever existed, my worst nightmare comes to life.
I’ll do anything to remind her of the love we shared. I know it’ll be an uphill battle, but I won’t walk away without a fight. Whoever said all is fair in love and war never played by my rules.
Checkmate, Angel.
*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*
**This is book w in the Logan & Kayla Saga–a second-chance romance. Must read This is Dangerous first. However, you don’t need to read any of the other Checkmate duet series to enjoy this one, but it’s recommended as they are both introduced in the earlier books.**






As i stated in my review for the first part of this duet Checkmate: This is Dangerous these are my first reads of Kennedy Fox 
(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.

I'm going to try and keep my review as spoiler free as possible because there is just so much that happens in this read that i honestly wouldn't be able to stop.

Checkmate: This is Beautiful is book 2 in the Duet. Of Logan Knight and Kayla Sinclair we pick up right where we left off in This is Dangerous... Kayla has lost the last two years of her memory!!!

THIS IS WHAT A SECOND-CHANCE ROMANCE IS ALL ABOUT!!! 


Nothing is going to stop Logan from fighting and showing her the love they had and to get back to were they were. Now Logan must help Kayla to trust him and fall in love with him all over again.. will she?! 

 This story is beautifully written that you feel all the emotions thrown at us page after page. Your heartbreaks wanting them to get back to what they had!! But the one person she just doesn't connect with is the one who loves her unconditionally. Can Kayla ever remember the love they shared together.. or will she let Logan go and just become a distant memory that she may never remember??? 

Kennedy Fox has given us an amazing second chance romance in this duet i couldn't put it book down! It had everything i wanted from a second chance read within these pages, it's heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. It has passion and amazing chemistry not just between Kayla and Logan but also within the friendships in this books.

Highly Recommended!!

Release Blitz - Drawn to Him - A Romance Collection



Drawn to Him website

http://www.drawntohimcollection.com

There are some men who make you helpless.

You know the kind.  They steal the breath from your lungs and make your heart beat a little faster with a single look.  You can’t stop staring, but the moment they pin those gorgeous eyes on you, you’re done for.

The kind that’s too hard to resist.

This is a collection of men just like that.

Handsome, confident and all for you.


These are the other authors involved with this collection, M. Never, L.J. Shen, K. Webster, Jade West, Isabella Starling, A. Zavarelli and K.L Kreig.
Excerpt from Infatuation by Willow Winters
“You’re very handsome, Mr. Kulls.”  I finally give in to a bit of my desire, and pick up the glass of wine, holding on to it for support in this decision.

His grin widens and he leans forward just slightly to say, “Alec, Lila.  My name is Alec to you.”  He pauses for a moment, then flashes me a smirk and adds, “Unless of course you’d like to scream 'Mr. Kulls' in bed?”

My face heats instantly as he rises from his seat to attend to the beeping oven and he's quick to say, “I do believe Alec may be easier.”

The sweet wine touches my lips and the taste is delicious, but I can’t think of anything other than this man on top of me, making me scream as he thrusts inside of me repeatedly.

“I think you’ve maybe thought a little too far ahead, Mr.- Alec,” I’m quick to correct myself.  I watch as he works in the oven, turning the chicken breasts and then setting the tongs back down on the counter before coming back to his seat.


“Mmm, that could be,” he says picking up his glass, but not sitting.  I cross my ankles and turn in my seat to face him.

“This isn’t very professional,” I tell him with a serious look, or at least the most serious I can manage.  He shrugs his shoulders and then takes a sip from his glass.

“Do you want it to be?” he asks and then adds, “That’s fine if you do.  I understand the attraction may only be on my end.”

My heart thumps hard in my chest.  I don’t think this man knows how to be subtle.  He’s honest and to the point.  But I admire that.

“It’s definitely not just one-sided,” I admit, and then bite my tongue.  I'm thinking I should add that this is dangerous for me.  I could lose my job.  More than that though, this man could crush me.  I’ve never had a one-night stand because I know I don’t really do casual.  I’ve been wined and dined and then thrown away before.  It hurts too much.

I don’t recover easily, and I prefer to avoid relationships.  But it’s been so long since I’ve been touched.


Alec’s deep voice rumbles, “That’s good to know.”  I don’t think a man has ever looked at me with the same level of desire.  It’s tempting and frightening all the same.

“So, tomorrow?” he asks me, and my brow furrows with confusion.

“Tomorrow?” I repeat.

He smiles at me, and the smell of his cologne, or maybe his natural scent hits me with a powerful force that makes me lean in closer to him.

“Would you like to go out with me tomorrow?” he asks.

His gray eyes swirl with a mixture of desire and something else--a desperate need.  I nod my head slowly and say, “I’d love to.”
