Kiss Marry Kill by Sidney Halston

Five years ago they fell in love after one whirlwind summer. Now she's an internationally famous musician and he's officially out of the military, but when their worlds collide, can they keep things strictly professional? Sweet, thrilling, emotional, and sexy, fall in love with Megan and Jax in USA Today bestseller Sidney Halston's Kiss Marry Kill.

He's been chasing a memory...

It was just supposed to be a regular Thursday afternoon… and then he saw her. Sitting in seat L214, one seat over from his at the baseball game, right next to her douche of a soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend. An impromptu kiss for the kiss cam, and Jax knew his life would never be the same. Five years and a tour in Afghanistan later, Jax is back stateside running his own private security firm, Iron-Clad, with his best friend. He isn't the man he used to be... but Megan isn't the sexy and sweet, though sheltered, twenty-two-year-old he left behind, either. And she's in trouble.

...but now they're on the run.

Megan Cruz has made something of herself. She’s turned her dreams of pop stardom into a reality. But when a deadly stalker breaks into her home claiming to be her number-one fan, the only person she can turn to is the boy who got away. But Jax isn’t the same carefree charmer who stole her heart, then broke it when he joined the military. This man is seductive, hard, guarded. And he'll do anything to protect what's his.

M/F Romance

This is kind of a second chance love affair story. Five years ago, Jax and Megan met at a baseball game. She was living the life her parents dreamed for her and Jax was getting ready to carry on without his father in his life. Both were in need of saving, but neither really knew it until it happened.

This is a story about success, living the life you choose for yourself and living for yourself, loving the friends you have, making new friends, and loving who you were meant to love.

I don't want to write too much, because it will give the story away, but the friends make this story hilarious, Jax makes the story steamy, and Megan keeps her cool and makes this story fit for a rock star.

Kiss Marry Kill is book one in the new Iron Clad Security series.

Megan Cruz is the lead singer in the band TNT. Megan has developed herself a stalker. When he breaks into her house, she fears the worst. Jax Irons is an owner of Iron-Clad Security and also has a history with Megan. Someone he thought he'd never see again after the four intensely amazing days they spent together five years ago. When he hears on the news that she's in trouble, he wastes no time getting to her. Keeping her safe becomes his top priority.

The spark Megan felt with Jax hasn't died in the five years they have been apart. They have both changed but that chemistry they shared didn't. Can Jax keep Megan safe while her body is a huge distraction or will Megan go stir crazy waiting for him to touch her?

I figured out the "who done it" early on but I absolutely loved the ride getting there. I am a huge fan of Ms. Halston's writing and Kiss Marry Kill is no exception. It's sexy and fun, suspenseful and has explosive chemistry. It really is everything you want in a romance. I can't wait to see what lies ahead for this series!

I loved the hell out of this story! It’s original, fast paced, and super steamy!

Jax and Megan had an intense week together before going their separate ways. Jax overseas to the military and Megan built a career as a singer in a popular pop band. The two parted ways, thinking they’d never see one another again. Now, years later Jax has been discharged from the military and owns a successful security agency. Which is why when he hears the woman who he’s never forgotten is in trouble, he swoops in to protect her. Megan’s gotten herself a crazy stalker and the only person who makes her feel safe is Jax. After spending time together, they realize the spark from years before is still strong, but Jax isn’t willing to risk Megan’s safety by getting distracted from his bodyguarding duties to start a relationship…

This is one of those books that you can’t put down once you start, the mystery and drama had me reading into the wee hours of the morning. I love all the characters, especially Jax’s security men – the author’s done a great job setting up what I can only expect is going to be a fantastic series. Looking forward to book #2!

This book was quite the novelty for me. Usually it’s the rock star ex that comes back into the picture, but in this twist, it’s the opposite.

Megan is being targeted by a stalker and when her house is broken into, Jackson "Jax" Irons comes to the rescue. He hasn’t seen Megan in five years, not since those four fateful days in Miami they spent together. Since then he survived the death of his squad, suffers from PTSD, and formed Iron-Clad security with his best friend. Seeing Megan the victim of a terrible crime, he jumps into action and to her defense.

Megan is scared for her life. The police don't seem to be taking her seriously even when the stalker breaks into her house. Thank goodness Jax showed up when he did, vowing to keep her safe, otherwise she didn't know what she would do. Moving back in with her parents is a no-go and she refuses to stay with friends in fear of putting them in danger.

Megan and Jax shared something special five years ago and both secretly want that something special for the here and now. The stalker brought them together again, but will it also tear them apart?

I have a feeling there will be more installments and I can't wait. I also hope that we see a lot of familiar faces in the next installment.

In my experience Ms. Halston writes great series – so I was really happy to get to read this new one. Although there is a need to build us a new world, this works very organically here, and we become invested not just in Jax and his future, but that of his team, and to a slightly lesser extent, Megan's band mates. I shall definitely be on the look out for future installments.

Jax and Megan are those people who chose to be sensible about the impossibility of their attraction to each other five years ago. Now, unexpectedly reunited, we get to watch as they remember the first time, and have to work hard for there to be a forever. I don't think there is any doubt from the beginning that these two have chemistry in spades, and an underlying friendship which is based on honesty and humour. It makes the story so much richer that we are worried not that they care, but that they will do the 'right' thing once again. And it would most definitely be for the wrong reason.

I enjoyed the stalker element, and though I guessed fairly early on, it only served to make things more tense, so maybe was intentional! But I will say no more than that.

If you enjoy well-paced, suspenseful but not too angsty love stories, then you should read this and enjoy it.

USA Today bestselling author, Sidney Halston lives her life with one simple rule: "Just Do It"—Nike. And that's exactly what she did.

After working hard as an attorney, Sidney picked up a pen for the first time at thirty years old to begin her dream of writing. Having never written anything other than very exciting legal briefs, she found an outlet for her imaginative, romantic side and wrote Seeing Red. That first pen stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Sidney lives in South Florida with her husband and children. She loves her family above all else, and reading follows a close second. When she's not writing, you can find her reading and reading and reading. She's a reader first and a writer second. When she's not writing or reading, her life is complete and utter chaos, trying to balance family life with work and writing (and reading). But she wouldn't have it any other way.
