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.
Seeing Red was seriously awesome. It was original, mysterious, and sexy! I have to admit, I am not one for suspense, so I skipped to the back to see what happened then finished reading. From the beginning of the book, I was intrigued. A group of travelers stranded on an Island for YEARS! But the story picks up years after they were rescued. And now the twins and Jill are all grown up! I loved the slight paranormal aspect too!
Cover and Writing
I don't much care for the cover. If I saw this on the shelf, I wouldn't have picked it up! I'm glad I read the blurb and book!! The writing was from several POV's but was easy to follow. I loved how there were journals from the past too.
I like Jill, she is strong and very smart. She is all alone in this world, not knowing her parents and losing someone that meant so much to her. I felt sad for her, and was glad that she had such great friends in Ollie and Xander. She wasn't whiny either, when she had every reason to be.
Swoonworthy Points: 7
As you can read in the blurb, there is a lot of sexual tension! Gah, I couldn't stand it, hence why I cheated and went to the end! I love who she picked!
Here's a swoon:
...cupped her face with both hands and kissed her, first tenderly and then with more passion. She parted her lips, and he slipped his tongue in her mouth. She startled him by kissing him back fervently.
See what I mean.. Hotness!!
I really liked Seeing Red, it kept your attention and was original.. not to mention HOT! I can't wait to read the next book!
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.
