What About Us by Sidney Halston

Irresistible beats and tantalizing bodies heat up the night at South Beach’s most scandalous new club.

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.

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.

No cheating. No cliffhangers. And no dress code.

Growing up together, Alex and Helen were told by their parents that they would one day be married. But when their worlds come crashing down around them, they lost touch with each other.

Years later, Alex finds Helen working in a bar in Miami and he can't understand why when she has all that money from her family. The hatred he feels is consuming him but the protection he feels towards her is overpowering the hatred.

Helen can't believe her eyes, after all these years he finally shows up and he wants to take her from her job. Why didn't he try to protect her when she needed him? Now she doesn't need him, she can take care of herself. But the feelings she has for him have come back in full force.

Can Alex see the truth about her and how she has lived the last 10 years? Will Helen see the truth about her father? Can Helen and Alex move on from the past and have a future together?

I really liked this series and love Alex and Helen but would have liked more of the others from the past books. This story was really good, and you could feel the pain that Alex and Helen were going through, and I found myself rooting for them to win in the end. You can read this one without reading the rest in the series, but I would suggest reading them all, it is a great series. So sit back and enjoy it, I have.

This book is set on the edge of the other books in the series. I was hoping for more interaction between the main characters in this book and those of the previous books.

The premise of this book is good, but at the same time, I think it left some ideas unexplored. In this day and age, I find it somewhat confusing for people, especially those with money, not to keep track of people they believe did them wrong.

As for Helen, I can't believe she didn't keep up with her family's former friends, or even googled the crimes her father was accused of. Her ex also causes a lot of drama, which she tries to deal with on her own.

As for Alex and Helen's romance, I did like their interactions between them, how she didn't give up her independence and how Alex came to respect her choices.

This is the fourth book in the series. I would say that it has links to the previous books but could be read as a standalone. That said, the others are excellent, so don't miss out! Helen works for the guys we have met in the previous books, and they are protective of her.

Alex and Helen have a difficult past, the say the least, so meeting after 12 years brings up all manner of bad memories. As we learn in the story, their versions of what happened vary dramatically, and until they can reconcile their feelings with the truth, they are destined to always feel a disconnect. I really enjoyed how Sidney Halston led them both to the facts that they needed to listen to, and the truth they needed to face. It was beautifully done, especially for Helen and her relationship with her father.

The strength of their sexual attraction and chemistry clashed so well with Gabe's distrust and Helen's disappointment. Add in Luke and the mess that was, and the scene is set for a hot, fast-paced, and yet thought provoking romance. A very good addition to the series, thank you.
