Welcome to Panic, a sultry Miami nightclub where bodies and hearts move to a beat that doesn’t stop at sunrise—the setting for an emotionally charged series from the bestselling author of the Worth the Fight novels.
When Katherine Wilson passes out in the arms of the hottest man she’s ever seen, it’s not because of the lights, the pulsating music, or the crowded dance floor. It’s because she can’t enjoy a night out like a normal person, not with her debilitating anxieties. These panic attacks are going to destroy her life unless she takes control—or gets a helping hand. So after the club’s bad-boy owner personally escorts her home, Katherine feels something urgent and primal awaken inside of her.
Nick Moreno doesn’t need a headache like Katherine. A drug bust has put his father behind bars and forced Nick to take over the daily business of his family’s South Beach nightclub. His head tells him to walk away—but his body has other ideas. Katherine’s vulnerability, her grace and courage, compel him to reach out. And when they kiss, Nick is overcome by desire: to pull her close, and promise that his embrace will always be the safest place on earth.
I simply cannot tell you my favourite scene – it is impossible – this story is a woven patchwork of having that one person to Pull You Close, cocoon you in their love – simply to be your warrior.
Sidney Halston has managed to combine two events in our history into a romantic story of repair, resolve and romance. One minute I had tears in my eyes and the next I was fist pumping for Katherine taking another step in her recovery.
Katherine is my saviour, my warrior and beautiful and I immediately connected with her on such a personal level. I have anxiety and depression and the way this author describes the thought processes of those who suffer this and measures you take to lead a normal life was simply spot on. The personal desire of Katherine to not want to take medication, to lead a healthy and fulfilling life – this is not a depressing story it is one of rebirth and renewal.
Nick is judgemental and abrupt at the start however as soon as he stayed the night to make sure Katherine was okay – well right there I knew he was a keeper.
Matt who is Nick’s brother is an amazing character and he saw what his own brother could not right from the start and I am very happy to see he is getting his own story.
This story flowed perfectly, had the right amount of humour at times which gives the reader some lightness in a story that touches on the dark. The sexual scenes and chemistry between Nick (Nico) and Katherine were simply sensual and will not disappoint the reader at all – I was left satisfied!
I love the cover and the ending was perfect. We get a glimpse of the what is in store for Matt and I do hope that Nick and Katherine play a part in the next story as their journey is not over.
Looking forward to returning to Panic.
