5* #review #Giveaway Kiss Marry Kill by @sidneyhalston @TastyBookTours

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.

5 Stars!
OMG guys Jax and Megan!!!  Hot.  

Kiss Marry Kill by Sidney Halston is one adventure ride.  For this being her first romantic suspense novel, you would never know.  She did a fabulous job engaging the reader with her characters and each scene.  I didn’t want it too end.
The story follows Megan and Jax, now famous singer and war veteran turned security expert.  Five years ago, the two met in an unusual way and have a four day affair days before Jax was deployed.   Five years without seeing or speaking too each other.  Five years wondering in the back of their minds what happened to the other...Five years asking what if questions.   Until now….Jax comes roaring back into Megan’s life.  When her life is in danger, he does the only thing he can do, help her.  But can Jax focus on Megan’s safety, not the feelings that are stirring in his belly from seeing the girl he let get away?  

I just had a small taste and I want to kiss some more. A lot more.

What I loved about this book was the switching between past and present.  It isn’t a lot of switching, but it gives you glimpses of their backstory and how they met.  It allows you too see the growth that each character has made over the last five years.  I felt that the past and present gave us some insight into the extreme chemistry between them.  These two have some many unresolved 
I also liked the slow build.  I didn’t want them jumping into bed right away, it just didn’t feel right.  I wanted them to connect on a deep level and I feel that Sidney captured that.  When they reconnect, I enjoyed how Jax tried so hard to fight his attraction to Megan, but eventually he couldn’t take it anymore.  He had to make her his.  

I love you, but I love you alive and if that means being a dick, so be it.

Is this a major Romantic Suspense novel?  No, it has just the right amount that will keep you guessing.  The first scene had me on edge!   This is a love story of two people who are destined to be together, that find their way back.   A story of two people who just clicked, but were at two different paths in their life.  Its about two people who left marks on each others souls that would never be forgotten.  

I can’t wait to read more from this series.  I am very intrigued by the secondary characters!  

Sidney did a fantastic job with this story.  She took a chance and she hit big!  This is tension filled, steamy and lovely.  I loved the romance between them and I felt that the five years apart was needed for them to grow into the people they were.  Sidney did an awesome job with keeping me on the edge of my seat guessing.  So much mystery and add in the romance...gosh it just brilliant!  I highly recommend this!  

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.
