Kiss Kiss Bang was an interesting an enjoyable read. An Alpha male, a strong, independent woman and a precocious little girl really made this story by Sidney Halston memorable. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
Six-foot-two and ripped…with superior computer skills, Josef “Joey” Clad is not your typical ex-Marine. The co-owner of Iron-Clad securities is 100% Alpha male, but under his muscular physique, he’s the best hacker in Miami who specializes in running Iron-Clad’s cyber ops. The perfect skill set for their new client who is getting threatening emails, a client who he definitely wants to get to know better. Much better.
Single mom, widow, Olivia Monroe has exceptional dreams that she refuses to let go of. Fifteen years ago, she left her broken home in New York City and never looked back. Now a dark horse candidate for Florida governor, she’s not looking for a relationship. Even with the hot guy who sweeps in and saves her computer the night before a big speech. Her hero has trouble written all over him. Joey is too handsome, too funny, too confident, and way too hard to resist.
Too bad he’s now her bodyguard.
Kiss Kiss Bang started off as what I thought was going to be a RomCom then the story took a turn and the Romantic Suspense really came through. And, Romantic Suspense may have won out, but it definitely had its lighter moments.
Alpha-male Joey Clad was undeniably one sexy man. On top of it, he knows how to hold a gun, hack a computer and love a woman.
Livie was a woman who ran away from an abusive house, learned how to stand on her own two feet and fight for what she believes in.
Alone, they are two strong people. Together, they could take on the world, figure out who is stalking and threatening her and protect the joy of Livie’s life … the precocious, lizard loving Sophie.
As Kiss Kiss Bang progressed, I really enjoyed reading about Evie and Joey. They both had pasts that they weren’t proud of but found a way to turn things around. Joey was entertaining at times, serious when had to be, super sexy – especially when he was helping Sophie. Sorry, but there is nothing sexier than a man crawling around looking for lizards, playing around in the pool and just enjoying the wonderment of a child.
Surrounded by strong secondary characters, Joey and Olivia were able to shine through. Sidney Halston really did a wonderful job of bringing these two characters together and giving them a love worth fighting for. I was intrigued with the storyline and enjoyed reading about Sophie. Yea, she kind of made the story. She was just adorable. And, the story flowed … there was no time that you weren’t wondering what was going to happen next or who may have been threatening them, where the Governor fit in or just when Harry’s Hacker would strike again. There were some things that were predictable but, that’s expected. There’s only so much that can be said without being a little predictable. That’s a true testament of a good romantic suspense author.
