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?

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.

MY REVIEW

First let me say... after reading this book, Sidney Halston has found a new fan. It's me, of course! Who knew that after reading the blurb and being gifted an advance copy that I'd find a new author to add to my favourites list? I freaking love when that happens. Something about this book spoke to me and I'll definitely be delving into her other novels.

Five years ago, Jax was a soldier about to go on his second tour of duty and Megan was on the brink of starting law school. Both had huge responsibilities and burdens, but for four blissful days, they only had to focus on each other's happiness. Now Megan's a famous rock star who's being stalked by an overzealous fan and Jax, with the support of his security company, is just the man to offer her protection.

Through flashbacks to the glory days, we get to see how deep the connection between Jax and Megan really was and how their feelings for one another never died. I absolutely loved Jax and Megan; individually and as a couple. The author gave the perfect amount of attention to their character development and did an amazing job of working it into the plot. I was constantly on the edge of my seat, from both the suspense elements and the development of the couple's relationship. It's safe to say that this story offered not a dull moment and left me in no doubt of the love and utter "rightness" of Jax and Megan. I'm excited to see what happens next in this series!
