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.

I have eagerly been awaiting This is Dangerous ever since I finished This is Effortless (Drew and Courtney book 2). I already got to know Kayla and Logan throughout the other books in the series and I was already in love with them and couldn’t wait for their story!

I absolutely adore Kayla, she is a true bleeding heart and such a sweet and good person. She volunteers at animal shelters and the soup kitchen. She is a truly good person with a heart of gold. She just makes you want good things to happen for her!

I was so intrigued by Logan, I needed to know hah was going on his mind. I love that Kennedy Fox tells their stories in dual POV because you get to know exactly what’s going on with each character. I learned so much about Logan and he was no longer this brooding loner, I truly understood him after this book. Let me tell you for all of you wondering… there is a lot more to Logan than meets the eye. The many sides of him will definitely surprise you… and if you’re anything like me they will also make you fall for him!

I loved Kayla and Logan together, it was everything I hoped for! Their adorable friendship leading up to it was also one of the best parts of their relationship for me. Don’t get me wrong… they bring the heat in the swoon like our other fave K Fox couples! But they also bring a sweet friendship to the table!

I cannot wait to see what happens in This is Beautiful! Many parts of this story were left open for the sequel and I need so many answers! Especially after that ending! Why K Fox? Why do you do that to me?! *Sobs* I cannot possibly wait until September!! But I will, because I am a K Fox fangirl for life and I will read any and everything this duo writes!

If you haven’t read a Kennedy Fox books yet… what are you waiting for?! They write super sweet and sexy contemporary romance with characters you can’t help but love!

Annnndddddd… Kennedy Fox did it again!! Another FANTASTIC book from this unstoppable writing duo! I’m officially obsessed. OBSESSED!! I can’t get enough of their books. They continue to slay me every. single. time.

This is Dangerous revolves around Kayla and Logan. We meet them in the earlier books, but get to know them both on a whole new level in this book. Kayla is such a sweetheart. She’s a complete do-gooder who spends her time volunteering and taking in stray dogs that aren’t being taken care of. She is completely in love with Logan, who won’t give a relationship with her a chance.

Logan is a hot, sweet, and adorable police officer with a history and baggage pile a mile long. He refuses to get into another relationship, especially at this time in his life. He’s keeping secrets from almost everyone (except for his bestie, Drew, who knows all about his skeletons in the closet.) and fears getting into a relationship anyone… even Kayla, who’s he’s been infatuated with since he first laid eyes on her.

I love these two, you guys!! I really thought that Drewtney was going to forever be my favorite couple… but in walked Layla, and now I’m stuck picking a favorite! These two are completely adorable and I spend the ENTIRE book routing for them to give a relationship a chance.

Oh… and did I forget to mention the donuts? Yup, there are lots and LOTS of donuts in this book. And trust me… after this story, you’ll NEVER look at donuts the same way again. 😉

And in normal KF fashion, this book ends with a huge WTF moment. (It wouldn’t be a real KF book if it didn’t, amirite?!) I was always a hater of cliffhangers, but I have to admit, I completely LOVE how this duo ends their books! It definitely makes you crave the next book HARD, and it’s great that the books are released so closely together, so the wait to find out what happens isn’t too torturous.

Another fantastic book by one of my favorite writing duos EVER! I can’t recommend these books enough. Seriously. If you’re a romance fan, be sure to check out this series. You’ll fall in love with these characters and their stories just as hard as I did, I promise you.
