"Sexy and suspenseful, Kiss Marry Kill is a compulsively great read from first page to last!" - Katee Robert, New York Times Bestselling author
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.
"I rooted for this couple right from their hysterical meet-cute! This hot, overprotective action hero will leave you swooning.” - Tessa Bailey, New York Times Bestselling author
This is my first book by Sidney Halston and it's a great start to a series. A second chance romance between an ex-marine and rock star. They met 5 years prior, Jax about to ship out and Meghan on the verge of starting law school.
This story had lot of things going for it. They way the two met was cute. How they spent the next four days together before Jax shipped out. The impact he had on her in that short amount of time, gave her the courage to change her life the way she wanted. How after 5 years, just the thought of Meghan in danger has Jax crashing back into her life to protect her from a stalker.
Overall, a great story, great writing and interesting characters. I would have loved a bit more excitement to the suspense part of the story. This also had one of things I do not like in my romance books. Jax thoughts of Meghan were great, he was possessive and loved her long before he could admit it, but he didn't feel good enough for her so there was too much pushing away for my tastes. I really need the man to be a man and make things happen. When that doesn't happen, it takes some of my love of the relationship away. That's just a personal like and I'm sure most readers will love the back and forth with the characters.

A chance encounter at a baseball game that leads to a weekend of passion has stayed with Jax for the last 5 years. The woman that haunts his memories is now a huge pop star and apparently has a stalker who's actions are escalating to deadly. Never one to sit on the sidelines, Jax and his security team jump in to help. Megan hasn't forgotten Jax either and she can't believe her good fortune when he comes to her aide after a nerve shattering incident with her stalker. Their reunion brings back all the old feelings and the attraction flares to life. Jax needs to stay focused though. It could mean life or death for Megan.
This is a great blend of romance and suspense with enough action to keep you on the edge of your seat while giving you the full story on their developing relationship. I thought he flashbacks to the past took away from the story a bit. While it was nice to know the whole story I don't think we needed quite so much of the past. Since that is really my only complaint about the book I will definitely be recommending this one to everyone.
5 yrs ago they had a beautiful romance...
Great romantic suspense! The story features co-owner of Iron-Clad Security, Jackson "Jax" Irons and singer, Megan Cruz. These two have such a beautiful romantic past. It brought tears to my eyes to see them have to let go five years ago. Now she's in trouble and to be reunited after something so dramatic and traumatic is awful but the sparks are still there. Five years can really change a man, especially a man that has been to war and back.
Fabulous story line! Awesome, well developed characters! Sizzling romance with great suspense and a plot twist that will surprise you. I always look forward to reading the fantastic works of Sidney Halston.
