Book Description:

A love triangle just wouldn't suffice; Jillian Stone had the 'misfortune' of getting herself into a love square-- with twins, nonetheless.

Alexander, Oliver, and Jillian were raised on a deserted island. For 12 years, all they knew were those that were marooned with them. A strong bond would link them forever. At 12 years old, they are all rescued and clairvoyant Jillian is immediately shipped off to boarding school. Ten years later, she is reunited with her twins at the funeral of Helen, the woman who “mothered” them while on the island. The innocent and childhood feelings they shared on the island...well, they aren’t so innocent anymore.  Her scrawny gangly twins are now grown men.  Oliver, the ever-loyal friend and Alexander the ultimate bad-boy, have her heart in a tug-a-war. 

Enter, mysteriously sexy Professor Paul Black. He’s Jillian’s law school professor and she has caught his attention, albeit inappropriate.  All the while, Jillian’s clairvoyance is wreaking havoc on her life as visions of a redheaded man are becoming all consuming. The dangerous man in her visions is searching for her and has a big secret to share with her about her time on the island as well as about her psychic abilities. Scared for her life, all three men try to protect her, but she must chose one in order to focus on the problem at hand—the redheaded man’s secret.

Seeing Red is a romance with some paranormal elements and some suspense and a lot of sexual tension.

My Review

Seeing Red was a fantastic story that had it all!!  I always have loved books about psychics.  So when I found out Jillian was a psychic, I knew I was was going to like this book.  I didn't like this book though, I LOVED it!!!  I am a romance junkie so there is a love triangle, maybe square, in here.  Sidney's writing style was beautiful and descriptive.  The characters felt so real and life like to me.  I really came to adore them and was hoping each one of them got their happy endings. 

I loved Jillian as a character.  She was a strong and independent woman.  She starts having dreams about someone finding her, but the twins are back in her life to keep her safe.  I must say that I love both Alexander and Oliver!!!  I would marry both guys.  Alexander is the bad boy that Jillian constantly fights with.  Oliver is the nice guy who Jillian can lean on.  Usually I am able to pick out which guy I want the main character to end up with, but I am so torn with this one.  I really adore both guys.  When she finally makes her choice at the end, I was just in an okay moment.  I still don't know how I feel about that.  I always seem to fall for the guy that never gets chosen anyway. 

Seeing Read was an enthralling read that kept me up through the night, because I had to know what was going to happen next.  Once I started this story, I couldn't put it down.  This book had so many twists and turns that I was kept on the edge of my seat the entire time.  It did leave off with a cliffhanger so I am hoping that means there will be a sequel.  I want to see what happens next with these characters.  This book is a MUST read!!!  It is one that I will reread again. becasue I loved it so much.

About the Author

Sidney Halston lives her life with one simple rule: “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”–Mark Twain. Or even simpler, “Just Do It”—Nike.
And that’s exactly what she did. After working hard as an attorney, Sidney picked up a pen for the first time at thirty years old to begin her dream of writing. Having never written anything other than very exciting legal briefs, she found an outlet for her imaginative romantic side and wrote Seeing Red.That first pen stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing.
Sidney lives in South Florida with her husband and children. She loves her family above all else, and reading follows a close second. When she’s not writing you can find her reading and reading and reading. She’s a reader first and a writer second.
When she’s not writing or reading, her life is complete and utter chaos, trying to balance family life with work and writing (and reading). But she wouldn’t have it any other way.
