Kiss Kiss Bang follows the "Clad" in Iron-Clad Security, also known as Joey. He's the hacker behind the security firm and meets his match in single mom Olivia Russo. When he first ran into her she was a disheveled mess having a break down on the floor of a computer store, yet just one look at her and he knew she was someone his life needed. Then he ended up being what she needed when a crazed stalker starts to make threats against her.

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY!!
A thrilling, sweet and sexy as heck romantic suspense. I love this series and each book is unique and exciting.

A computer crash is the last thing anyone wants, especially while preparing to give an important speech in a race for governor. Fortunately for Olivia Monroe, she also crashes right into delectable computer expert, ex-marine, co-owner of Iron-Clad security and secret hacker Joseph Clad who is more than willing to help a damsel in distress.

Kiss Kiss Bang by Sidney Halston gets a very high 4-star rating. I had such a blast reading this! This author knows how to perfectly mesh suspense, romance and humor into one heck of an entertaining read. Some would say that Olivia and Joey’s meeting was a thing of fate. Her computer crashed and while waiting in a line going nowhere to get it fixed, it’s Joey to the rescue. That chance encounter led to the blossoming of something new and beautiful for both of them. And lucky for her. With a st ...more

Wow! Now this is how alpha heroes and romance is done! I absolutely loved this book! It was so quick paced, never bogging down with too much or unnecessary information and the way Joey met, stepped in and then fell for Olivia and her daughter was totally swoon worthy! There was just enough drama and danger to keep the story moving and character development that made me feel like these people were my friends.

Sometimes when a heroine has a career such as Olivia they can be written to be too hard

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

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.

Sidney Halston’s latest Iron-Clad Security series isn’t quite the typical bodyguard-type romance, even though the high-profile/security (geek) guy pairing is in full force here. It’s a rather unusual setup nonetheless (a politician with an ex-military hacker) and while there’s some suspense written into this, the focus is mainly on the romance that grows under adversity, coupled with an annoying child who seems to be constantly hovering at the ‘terrible-twos’ age and a ton of eye-blinding lust. ...more

3.5 stars .
Another entertaining read from Sidney Halston and this is a nice addition to the Iron Clad Security series.
I liked that all 3 books were uniquely original and each had a different story to tell within the parameters of the series. This author is always fun and easy reading for me, I like her a lot.
Sidney writes romantic suspense in a way that remains light and funny, not overly dark or angsty.
I was happy to see Joey get his own book and the romance was sweet, I also liked Olivia and

This is the first Sidney Halston book I’ve read and I enjoyed it. I liked the main characters and I found the story moved along quickly enough to hold my interest and want to keep reading. I will definitely pick up with others in the series because I need to know what went down with them as well!

3.5 stars!

The third book in the Iron Clad Security series, and Sidney Halston has delivered another solid bodyguard-client romance that is fun, flirty, sexy and romantic with a functional, low-angst relationship and a touch of mystery/suspense that makes this a really exciting read that can easily standalone. With an alpha hero you can’t help but love, a strong and feisty single mother heroine and an adorable little girl, this is a great read and I really enjoyed it.

Kiss Kiss Bang is suspenseful romance filled with some intense moments.

I've read this series from the beginning and continue to enjoy each book I've read.

This one features Josef and Olivia. These two have what I would call a whirlwind romance.

Josef is protective and I would say Alpha as well. He was pretty relentless in his pursuit of Olivia but at the same time respected her profession as a politician. He made my heart melt with how he was with Olivia's daughter.

This storyline has some twist

I was a little hesitant to dive into Kiss Kiss Bang (I’ll get to the reason in a bit) but I needn’t have worried because I loved this book. This may just be my favorite of the series. It was a fun, quick read that was low on angst, but had just the right amount of suspense to keep things interesting and characters I enjoyed getting to know and ended up loving when everything was said and done.

The reason I was hesitant about this one falls entirely on Joey/Josef’s shoulders. I want

Another 5 Star Iron Clad Security Book!!! Man I have loved every single book in this series!!


💛This is Josef and Olivia’s love story...

Olivia~ sure I came from a horrible past but here I am now running for Governor of Florida. I am a single mother and haven’t had sex in five years, so a man is out of the question right now. Problem is Josef Clad doesn’t really take orders or suggestions he just steam rolls his way right on in. And damn it if I can’t stop staring at him...

I always wonder how writers comes up with the scenarios of when the main characters first met. A candidate for governor in hysterics in the middle of a computer care centre after her laptop crashed in the middle of writing an important speech and a IT security guy who offered to retrieve her data knowing that the shop would probably write-off the laptop as a gone case. An implausible but interesting situation.

The actual political campaign and being a mom plot lines were weak at best. The romance and suspense with Olivia and Joey were spot on, and quite fun to read.

Joey doesn't mind voicing his opinions, "his eyes roamed her bare legs. He took a step so he was right by her ear and whispered, “Yes, he’s terrible. But also, I’m not thrilled about another man seeing your bare legs or ***.” Joey can be a playful guy, “I’m basically doing it to get into your pants.” He winked, throwing her words back at her, playfully." I liked this book, I really fell in love with Joey, and little Sophie just stole my heart.

I would love this protection detail…

This series is one of my favourites as it mixes sweet love and romantic suspense with humour, heat and heart!

This time out Joey is wooing a reluctant Olivia with all the romantic tricks in his arsenal – and they are impressive. He doesn’t look like a stereotypical computer nerd but underneath that sexy, ex-military façade lies the heart of a hacker as well as a protective, gentle man. If he doesn’t sound like a macho man then you would be right but he knows ho

Sidney Halston has quickly become one of my auto buy authors. And honestly I have loved everything that she has written so far. It seems that unfortunately this will be the last book of this series. Josef "Joey" Clad is the brains behind the whole operation at Ironclad Securities. A guy who may have been considered a nerd due to his super hacking capabilities, but who has the body of a warrior. An ex marine, he is the quintessential alpha male. A man that once he sets his sights on a woman he wi ...more

My Review:
Ooh, I liked this story. This is a romantic suspense, but it's definitely heavier on the romance than the suspense. Olivia is an unlikely gubernatorial candidate. She's really just a mom, getting by. But when she meets Joey, she's not even managing that as she's having a nervous breakdown in the electronics store because her laptop is crashing with the speech that she desperately needs on it. Joey finds himself entranced by this mess of a woman who is normally as smooth and put togethe

This is the 2nd book in this series for me (missed the actual 2nd book which several people said was the best) and while I enjoyed them both they both failed me in the bedroom scenes. The story is exceptional and well written but when it comes to the sex scenes it is like somebody else did the writing about 2 different people. Totally out of character for the people in this story. I read a couple of hundred books a year and seen all kinds of intimate scenes written but all of the better ones flo ...more

Joey Clad is half owner of Iron Clad Security. He is retired military, an IT genius and master hacker. He has always been a behind the scenes guy, taking care of everything IT, only becoming an active participant when absolutely necessary. He’s in great physical shape, somewhat alpha, very wealthy and pretty content with his life.

Olivia Russo grew up very poor with drug addict parents. She left town after high school and has done well for herself. She is currently running for Governor. She was w
