Release Blast: Kiss, Marry, Kill by Sidney Halston

He's been chasing a memory . . .

Iron Clad Security #1
Sidney Halston
Releasing March 28th, 2017

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.

He stuffed the last bite of food into his mouth.
“You know what this means, right?”
“We have to do five fun things for you while we do five boring things for me.”
“I don’t remember agreeing to that.”
“So you don’t want to do five fun things?”
Megan pushed her plate back, no longer hungry. She felt emboldened, and this time she leaned over and reached for the lock of hair by his eye and pushed hit back, needing to see those sexy green eyes. “With you? Yes, I think I do,” she said, her voice a little thicker, a little lower, and her eyes never leaving his.
It was time sweet sheltered Megan had some fun.

Kiss, Marry, Kill was a mix of second chances and romantic suspense.  Megan and Jax met in a past life it seems, she was poised to start Law school and he was deploying; but their time together set off a different course for Megan. 

Now in the present, Jax is out of the military and formed his own security business. He's been home for a while but didn't have the courage to look Megan up, even though he's thought about her often.  And then fate steps in and he sees her on television, the victim of a stalker and Jax immediately begins to step in to help protect her. 

Megan gave up on law school to follow a dream of hers, music.  Joining the group TNT and singing changed her life in more ways than one, but she's never been happier with what she was doing - that is until a stalker enters her life and she's afraid of what will come next.  When the man from her past that helped her change her life's direction reappears Megan isn't sure what to do. 

Kiss, Marry, Kill grabbed me from the beginning - not only curious about what would happen between Jax and Megan now that they  have been brought  together again, but also with a deep curiousity of the stalker.  The set-up pulled me in and kept me on the edge of my seat, wondering how far the stalker would go and if Jax would be able to keep Megan safe. And also how long it would take these two to begin a new relationship as well because their chemistry was great and they'd been thinking of the other for years.  

Alongside the problems of the stalker and the danger surrounding Megan, there are other issues in the mix, Megan's family who wasn't happy when she changed her life plans and Jax dealing with his life outside of the military and what he'd endured while in, there isn't a dull moment of this story.  The connection between these two characters is strong and has a realistic feel to it, which makes it easier to be sucked into their story and root for a good outcome in regards to both their relationship and taking care of the lurking danger.  

Kiss, Marry, Kill is the first book in this new series and I, for one, can't wait to see what comes next. 

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.
