Kiss Me Back
Lola: I’ve seen the way women in line behind the velvet rope look at William Fox, like he’s an Armani-clad St. Peter at the pearly gates. Except Panic isn’t heaven, and this bouncer is no saint. He’s been tempting me to sin ever since I started ...more

Give me a book written by Sidney Halston and I will read it no matter what. But give me Kiss Me Back and I will not only read it, I will love it. Fox and Lola immediately grabbed my attention in this story and I couldn't put this book down once I started.
They had a slower relationship but I really liked it for them and thought it worked with the character personalities. Fox had this vulnerable side to him which I personally love seeing in my Heroes and it made me e ...more

There is no such thing as perfect... at least no human thing...And that is the big misconception we all seem to have...We think others are these perfect people with no issues or troubles... we see them from afar and feel we could never measure up or be "In Their League"...The joke is on All Of Us for we all have things that can be seen or felt as imperfections. Some more visible or recognizable, some more challenging then others. What we nee ...more
Lola and Fox start off rough, but boy do they finish strong. Her secret..wow, just wow. I never saw that one coming. Fox is just perfect and is willing to sacrifice so much for her. The couples from the previous books make lots of cameos in this book.
I was extra excited because there was lots of Iggy in this book. My fingers and toes are crossed that he's the hero in the next book.
After literally running into William Fox the day she was hired as a bartender at one of Miami’s hottest nightclubs, Lola has worked hard and avoided the cocky and delicious man even harder. But the more she resists the more determined Fox becomes, until a bit too much alcohol leads her to accep ...more
Fox has worked hard to find the success he now has in his life. He has a great home, expensive car, and the best suits money can buy. For the last six months he’s been trying to get a date with Lola but she always polit ...more
What an interesting story this was! It was light, fun, serious and the ending was so romantic. Sidney Halston wrote a surprising story with Kiss Me Back and I am so happy that I got the chance to read and review it.
Lola and Fox were fascinating but, it wasn't until you were really into the story that you found out why. No spoilers here, just saying that the story really caught my attention then. That's when Fox really became my hero. He was so accommodating, so strong and did what no one else ev ...more
I really enjoyed the first book in this series (Pull Me Close), but couldn't finish the second one. I decided to give Halston another try with Kiss Me Back.
Sadly, I just didn't fall in love with these characters or the writing. Something I have a hard time with in genre fiction is how generic or formulaic the plots and characters become. Girl who's "not like the other girls;" boy who's physically large and imposing, broody but with a secret sweet side; one (or both) characters with a t ...more
I was given an ARC via netgalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
I am really enjoying this series. This specific book has been my favorite so far! I loved Lola and Fox. Their relationship was sexy, romantic and emotional. I want a guy to throw paper airplanes with sweet messages to me!!😣😣
Anyways I hope you guys pick up this series. Each one follows different characters so each book could be read as standalone.
4 "Show me the meaning of happiness" stars
Hell, what to say here?
William Fox, the bouncer in the nightclub Panic and later a security manager for Duality, finds a purpose in loving a woman with hearing disability, Lola-a young woman who showed Fox beyond material, shiny things...she showed him the meaning of happiness...the meaning of unconditional love...
And while all along Fox was trying to prove smth to himself, trying to find himself beyond all the wrongs in his upbringing leaving him feelin ...more
I was so excited to dive back into the world of steamy Miami nights in the Panic nightclub, and Sidney Halston has once again delivered a sweet, sexy, beautifully romantic story that is surprising, intense and absolutely captivating. It’s a short read, but it packs an emotional and profound punch, and I loved it!
We have met William Fox in previous books of the series. He is the solid, dependable, well-dressed and slightly badass bouncer of the club. He is dedicated ...more
Kiss me Back is the 3rd book in the Panic series and I have read them all.
I was thrilled to receive this ARC as I really enjoy this author's storytelling, her first book "Pull Me Close" is a personal favorite.
This was a little more of a departure from the others in this series but definitely in a good way.
William Fox is security at the nightclub Panic, he is always concerned about looking his best and presenting a good impression, he dresses well wearing expensive suits.
When he meet ...more
Lola’s life has been stunted in many ways. She has closed herself off to people and is focused on her mission to finish her degree and help the children in Ecuador. Working at Panic night club and saving hard for her dream is all Lola has time for but Fox is slowly wearing her down. She only has ...more
This series started with Pull Me Close and that book will always hold a special place in my heart. But, of course, I was excited to start this one as we were about to get William Fox's story. The big, tatted, bouncer/security expert for the nightclub, Panic. But he was adamant about looking impeccable, always dressed to the T, and looking impressive. I loved that Nick and Matt were confident in Will's abilities and eventually promoted him to security manager for their new ...more
This story was AWESOME!!! I love all of the books in this series, but this is my new favorite. This is book 3 in the series and they can probably be read as a standalone, but you should read them all and in order since you 'see' the previous characters from the other books.
Fox is the security man at the night club where Lola bartends... obviously this is where they meet. Fox wants Lola and she keeps pretending to not be affected by him. Honestly, I don't know how she did it. ...more
Second, there are two glaring errors toward the end of the book that would not have happened.
So now there will be **spoilers** in this review, so please be aware.
Lola is profoundly deaf. She is able to go through life hiding this fact from everyone she meets. This makes me wonder ...more
Fox is this big guy who always looks impeccable-not a hair out of place, neatly trimmed beard, and a GQ kind of look that catches the eyes. He’s also got the sexy swagger and the cool, calm demeanor to go with it until he gets around Lola. He finally meets a chick who doesn’t try to get in his pants or use his position ...more
A security guard falls hard for a bartender in a popular nightclub but secrets on both sides could stop the relationship before it even starts. Kiss Me Back is the 3rd in a contemporary romance series that started out strong but weakened considerably as the story unfolded. Very melodramatic and unrealistic in some areas, I found myself struggling to connect to the characters-especially the heroine. The hero grew on me as his secrets revealed. Very insecure due to his childhood, his flash ...more
When Fox, the bouncer at Panic, meets the new bartender, Lola, he's instantly attracted to her. The feeling is mutual, but Lola spends the next few months avoiding him, and by then he's had it with her avoiding him. So his new mission is to scale her walls and get her to just go on a date with him. He's nothing if not determined, so it should be easy, right? Wrong. Because Lola has walls stronger than Fort Knox, and a huge secret that she's hiding from just about everyone.
When Lola finally admi ...more
Lola Daye is a bartender at Panic. She’s 24, subdued, focused, determined, intelligent, independent ...more
This is book three in the series - I would definitely recommend that you read the previous two as they are excellent reads, but you could definitely enjoy this as a stand alone too.
I really think this is a fabulous story, with strong characters, a brilliant twist and a very, very desirable outcome. It manages to balance the situation between Lola and Fox, even when their positions are so significantly different. As more ...more
