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 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.

I promised myself after last week’s somewhat heavy and angsty review from BDB Land that I would lighten up a bit for those of you who are nearing vacation time and need a good beach or poolside listen. Kiss Marry Kill by Sidney Halston may not initially strike you as a candidate for this genre, but it does meet the criteria if you stop and think about it. A super-hot war hero, a famous rock star with a stalker, a second chance at love, and a HEA. Once upon a time, Jackson Irons and Megan Cruz shared four magical days. Now they are reunited, each very different, but with the common goal of saving Megan from a crazy stalker. As the present storyline unfolds, we learn about their past connection through a series of flashbacks. Jax has experienced a tragedy which brings out the Neanderthal in him, but there is a bit of comic relief provided by his business partner Joey and Megan’s bandmates Nelly and Taylor to offset the drama. It doesn’t pay for these characters — or readers or listeners — to get too comfortable because just when the mystery seems to be solved, a surprise villain appears! Never fear . . . the ending ties things up nicely and offers a teaser for the second book in the series.
This is my first experience with narrator Dara Rosenberg and she turns in a solid performance. She fits well into the category of voice artists whose performances do justice to the author’s work without overshadowing it.
Thanks to the folks at Macmillan Audio for introducing me to this series and author Sidney Halston. If you are intrigued by the title, as I was, the meaning will be clearly revealed at just the right time. I highly recommend Kiss Marry Kill to my vacationing listeners. It will hold your interest without weighing you down with scary or convoluted storylines and characters who will star in your nightmares.
