REVIEW of What About Us by Sidney Halston

On Sale November 20th | Ballantine/Loveswept

Alex: I hate doing business in clubs. Especially one like Duality. I’m here to seal a deal, not indulge in whatever hedonistic illusion they’re selling. Until, through all the skin and sex on display, I see her. Helen Blackwood. The girl who once filled my youthful fantasies, whose name is now synonymous with pain. Her father’s lies destroyed my family, leaving me with nothing to lose. And yet I can’t deny my electric response to her touch . . . or my urge to protect her when I see the bruise on her face.

Helen: Growing up, life prepared me for society galas and powerful men, not minimum-wage jobs or drunk exes with anger issues. But I’m a survivor. So here I am, practically naked, serving drinks at a Miami nightclub. I don’t mind the stares. Apparently, Alex Archer does. After twelve years, we aren’t exactly friends, but money is something we both understand. Something he knows I need. I’ll be his personal assistant, even if it means working with the man I hate . . . and the man I still want. 

My Thoughts…

Sidney Halston sure does know how to write a story.    Helen and Alex had  history that ended with them both only knowing part of each other’s story.    Helen blamed Alex for not standing by her in her time of need and Alex blamed Helen for his father’s death.    When chance throws them together at the same club the feelings they had for each other come out.   Alex becomes protective and alpha male, Helen tried to remain self-reliant and proud.   Sparks fly, tempers flare, and feelings are hurt.  
I am new to the Panic series but picked up What About Us and didn’t miss a beat.    The characters were wonderful, the storyline was amazing, and it all came together perfectly.    I loved the second-chance romance, the reliving of the past, and the learning of their future.  

This is a book that I recommend picking up.   I am excited to read the rest of the series and find out the story behind some of the other characters.

 USA Today bestselling author Sidney Halston lives her life by one simple rule: “Just do it.” And that’s exactly what she did. At the age of thirty, having never written anything other than a legal brief, she picked up a pen to pursue her dream of becoming an author. That first stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Halston lives in South Florida with her husband and children.
