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 received this book free from Netgalley on behalf of Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review*
Megan Cruz made something of herself after meeting a man that told her she can do anything that makes her happy. Now she is a pop star that is on the rise. When you have fame, danger will follow. Megan has a stalker that she is terrified of. When he breaks into her house and Megan is hiding from him she realizes that the threats are real.
Jax Iron’s is a war veteran that now runs a security company. When he sees the new report about Megan he knows that he is going to have to do something to protect her. He knows Megan. He tried to forget her but he can’t.
Jax runs to Megan when he finds out what is going on. He will do anything it takes to protect her. He will do anything except get involved with her. He knows that if he lets his guard down then trouble can find its way in. Keeping his hands off her will be the hardest thing he has ever done. And man is he grumpy about it.
This was a very fun read. Jax and Megan have a past that you learn about early on. When they went their separate ways, they thought they would never see each other again. The chemistry is instant and you feel you are a part of their story. Thank you to the author for keeping me on my toes. You think you know what is going on early in the book, then you are not sure. This is excellent writing and a great book to read.
My Favorite Moment: I enjoyed the trip to the Bahamas. I felt like you got to know the characters a little bit better and the chemistry was intense!

“I can’t believe I’m here with you. I mean, I didn’t think I’d ever see you again.”
His face softened and there was the ghost of a smile hidden somewhere in his bushy beard.“Still not a question.”
“How long have you been back?”
“What happened to you? Do you leave again?”
“Got blown up, got discharged, came home, not leaving again.”
It was short, and she needed more information, but knowing he wasn’t going to expand, she moved on. “Okay,” she sing-songed, “are you married?” Then she heard the very familiar and very welcome chuckle of Jackson Irons. It hit her right in the chest. It was her first glimpse of the old Jax.
“No. Not married.”
“Do you want to know if I’m married?” she asked.
“Already know you’re not.” His arms were big and bulky and the way that he leaned into the island made him look impatient.
“Can you sit? You’re making me nervous.”
He pushed off the counter and sat on the chair across from her, the island between them. “What do you do now?” “I co-own Iron-Clad Security here in town. We do all types of security work including bodyguard, government ops, cyber-security, securing homes.”
She held out her finger and pointed to herself. “I’m pretty sure I’m in the market for some of that.”
“Already on it, Meg.”
“Really? Don’t I have to hire you first, or something? Discuss prices? Sign a contract?”
“You think I’d sit back and wait for a stalker to break in again while we discuss pricing options? Fill out paperwork?”
