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.
Sigh. I’m so bummed right now as I’m writing this review. I loved the last book of Halston’s that I read. And I was excited for a romantic suspense from her. Kiss Marry Kill…I was looking forward to jumping in.
Right off the bat, I lost of excitement as I realized it was third person point of view. To make it even worse, it was dual pov. I love dual pov, but not when it’s third-person. And oh my gosh, I kid you not I spent probably 30% of the book not knowing who’s pov I was reading from. And I hated that.
I don’t know, but something about Kiss Marry Kill just didn’t feel right. Some of the dialog seemed off or out of place. The main characters didn’t feel complete. There were times that it felt that the author might have forgotten the path or personality she had set for her mc’s.
Honestly, (and this is where it bums me out) I can not think of any positive comments to add to my review. Argh! I think the only reason why I gave it another half star was because I didn’t give up on the book. I almost did so many times. SO. Many. Times. But I just couldn’t. Ugh. The suspense wasn’t really even…suspenseful.
