...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.
When Megan has a run in with a stalker, Jax runs to her side, even though he hasn’t seen her in years. Megan is now a pop star with a serious problem on her hands. Fortunately, Jax runs a private security company and is in the perfect position to help protect her. Jax and Megan had a brief but intense fling five years before, right before he left for a tour in Afghanistan. The relationship changed both their lives and made everything heat up quickly between the two when they are reunited. There are some seriously unresolved issues between these two.
Throughout the present-day story, Sidney Halston weaves in flashbacks of Jax and Megan’s earlier time together. While these flashbacks did help to explain how fast Megan and Jax fall in love, I felt that they made the overall book drag quite a bit. I skimmed the flashbacks liberally because they weighed the book down and took away from the flow of the present-day suspense plot which was my favorite part of the story.
Megan is in trouble. Yes, she has a stalker, but there may be more going on - something that will test Jax’s private investigator skills. Jax is determined to keep Megan safe, whatever the cost. Of course, this puts the two in close and constant contact, rekindling their romantic feelings for each other. Jax is a rather practical man, not terribly romantic, but one cannot doubt his devotion to Megan.
Kiss Marry Kill was an intriguing romantic suspense. There was a good balance between the romance and the suspense, although I didn’t love the number of flashbacks. I assume that the other members of Jax’s security/investigative company will get stories of their own, and I am curious about these characters.
