Lissa's Review: Pull Me Close (The Panic #1) by Sidney Halston
Publisher via NetGalley
Released: October 25th 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 240 pages
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.
Four Boundless Stars
**I received an ARC, in exchange for an honest review**
Pull Me Close, is such a heartbreaking story. But filled with so much strength.
Katherine, is suffering from extreme anxiety. Due to a horrific situation that she endured. She meets Nick randomly. First he thinks she’s on something and doesn’t understand the severity of it. But once he does. Everything changes.
The writing was really great. It drew me into the story. I don’t know why, but I didn’t connect to the characters themselves. But anyone can relate to the situation. One that changes you forever. Just cause I didn’t connect, doesn’t meant I didn’t like the characters. Katherine really grew and changed through out the story. She was able to work on these never ending fears. With the help of Nico. I think, honestly, that Nico was meant to be there at that moment.
There were some steamy moments, but there was all the other real life moments as well. I enjoyed this, even with the difficult theme. The fears that controlled her. I loved to watch her grow. I think that’s what I loved most about this story, Is this is a real thing and Halston really wrote this so well. You are able to put yourself in the moment.
Overall, I give Pull Me Close, Four Boundless Stars. I’m interested to see what happens next in this series
