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.
Kiss Marry Kill by Sidney Halston is a romantic suspense novel about Jackson “Jax” Irons and Megan Cruz who share a kiss on the kiss cam during a baseball game before spending four unforgettable days together prior to their lives taking them into different directions. Him to the Marines, and her to law school.
Years later, after being injured in active duty, Jax is back home and co-owner of Iron Clad Security with his best- friend and fellow marine Joey. Though it’s been years, he still can’t forget his Megan. So when he sees a news report on the tv about famous lead singer, Megan Cruz being attacked by a stalker, Jax is floored. He immediately goes to her and offers his services, unwilling to lose her now that he knows she needs his help.
The chemistry between Jax and Megan is strong and I enjoyed how Ms. Halston gave us more of their backstory by including chapters set in the past. They both feel very strongly for each other while still understanding that the person they had a romantic interlude with years ago is not the same person standing before them now. They don’t just immediately fall into each others arms which I liked.
The mystery/suspense with the stalker was well written and kept me interested. I was not entirely sure who the suspect truly was which I appreciated.
Overall, Kiss Marry Kill by Sidney Halston was an enjoyable novel and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. I happily recommend.
