CHECKMATE: THIS IS BEAUTIFUL – A Kennedy Fox Review & Giveaway


OK…do you ever read a book and just WONDER how the HECK you’re going to survive it? Well KF won’t let you down in the finale with This is Beautiful.

One can only assume that you’ve already read This is Dangerous (if not then WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU….GO GET IT!) so the ending left you hopeless, tattered, and begging for a resolution. And boy do we get one!

Reading through Kayla’s struggle with her memory loss was really tough. KF handled it in a really smart way as Kayla is curious about the two years that she lost but she knows that as a person, it’s obviously changed her. Some for good, some for bad. It was tough to see Logan really struggle with the loss of the Kayla HE knew. She needs to re- discover things in her own way but Logan can’t help but try to bring out the girl he fell in love with.

There are multiple points in this book where I was SURE my heart as going to be broken for good. I wanted to kick Logan at times. I wanted to yell at Kayla’s brain. I wanted to punch a certain hoe in her face for being catty and RUDE. But mostly KF had me somehow dreading and loving each turn of the page. There’s a NEED to know how these two can ever find a happy ever after…or not one at all. A wonderfully done finale to a brilliantly planned triple duet. I shall spoil none so you must go get it and find out what happens to Team Layla for yourself!

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.
