Kiss Me Back

(Panic #3)

The only thing hotter than the Miami sun is the sexual tension at Panic, the South Beach nightclub where love knows no boundaries.

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

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

I really ended up liking Fox - At first glance and based on the other's observations of him, he seemed flashy, high maintenance and a bit shallow. With his fancy car, tailored suits and perfectly groomed beard, he fit the bill. But his appearance was his camouflage of choice. Underneath it all he was a really sweet, selfless and protective guy. The way he handles Lola, who lets be honest, could be a bit melodramatic, was priceless. He had moments that were OTT but in a good way :) I loved gettin ...more

4 Imperfection Can Be Perfect Stars

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.

Lola and Fox start off rough, but boy do they finish strong. Her, 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.
Sidney Halston resumes her “Panic” series with this sweet and sultry story of the tempting yet pretentious nightclub security man and the sexy down to earth bartender who taught him about true happiness.

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
Lola has been striving for the last seven years to make her dreams come true. In is just a few months’ time those plans will be coming to fruition. Working a second job at Panic is a step in helping to achieve her goals but getting involved with the very attractive bouncer is not.
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

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

2.5 Stars

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

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.

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

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

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.

I have been excited to read this book since we were first introduced to Lola and Fox. Each book in the series shows the depth and power of love and how it has the strength to heal even the deepest scars.

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

When she's comfortable enough Lola doesn't mind asking her man for favors, and honestly I don't think Fox cares as long as he always gets a good view out of it, “Fox, if I have *** with you every single day from now until I leave for Ecuador, can I use your washing machine once a week? Can we make it a package deal? I need to renegotiate our terms.” She’s standing in just her underwear and a bra pouring detergent into my washing machine, and looking at it longingly..."

The Fox and the Tiger!

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

Oh Fox, Fox, Fox....
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.

The story of Fox and Lola has cemented it's spot on my top 10 list for HEA. I have re-read it three times in the last week. I cannot get enough! I cannot wait to see where this story line goes next.

First of all, it just about kills me to give this book anything less than 5 stars. I actually loved the story. However, I can't give it more than 3 stars because the entire premise of the book is so flawed.

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

William Fox caught my eye in the first two books of the Panic series. He seemed like an interesting character to pick apart and I was thrilled to get my happy hands on his story!

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
Grade: C

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

Panic has a new bartender and the full of himself security man/bouncer/entry door man has his eye on this shy little thing. Lola keeps to herself and being shy is just Lola. Earbuds in, busy working doing her job, she's managed to blow Fox off for 6 months. He asks her out, she turns him down every. single. time. Fox is pretty full of himself, he's got his share of baggage from the past and he works hard to keep that under wraps. Outward appearances are deceiving. The guys are opening a new club ...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.

William Fox is a bouncer at Panic, a luxury, exclusive night club. He is a tattooed, muscled, slightly arrogant, big flirt, a little cocky and cares far too much what others think of him. He has a silver fox appearance even though he’s only 33. He had a pretty crappy childhood with an abusive dad who told him he’d never amount to anything. Therefore, he was determined to make something of himself.

With just a single look William Fox makes every woman in the room weak in the knees, he's good looking, got serious swagger, and knows just what it takes to command a woman's attention... and hold it! But there is one woman in particular that seems to be immune to his smoldering gaze, and it just so happens to be the one woman he wants, so it drives him more than a little crazy that he can't lure her in. Then one night she has a moment of weakness, and gives him just what he has been wanting... ...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

William Fox is a bouncer at club Panic, one of the It spots in Miami. He is used to women throwing themselves at him all the time. He has worked hard to get where he is and he wouldn't change a thing. That is until one woman crosses his path and makes him think twice. He wears nice suits, drives a nice car and lives in a nice place, so why doesn't she notice him?

This book explores the relationship between Lola and Fox. Both of them have issues that they are trying to overcome, each running from the past. When Fox asks Lola out, she reluctantly agrees and when he stands her up, she can't believe she put herself out there to be stood up.

Fox hates that he flaked on Lola. He really likes her, and he can only hope that Lola will give him another chance. When she does, he vows to make su
