Seeing Red by Sidney Halston

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.

Can I just say that I was captivated by this book?  It's not like I've never been captivated by a book before but there was something about this one that had me so anxious to find out what was going to happen next that I seriously... Did. Not. Go. To. Bed... til the next night!  I stayed up all night reading, got up with the kiddos, did the mommy thing... all while thinking about Jillian and everything she had on her mind.. and then what's still to come.  Okay so I kind of know why I was anxious and it's like the whole Keatyn Chronicles thing all over again... HOT BOY OVERLOAD!!!!  I loved Oliver... then I loved Alexander... then, even though he kind of gave me the creeps I was a little in love with Paul... then I was all over Alexander again.. then it was all about Oliver... I could NOT for the life of me pick between those Yummy twins and finally by about 80% into the book when one of them (I won't tell you who *evil grin*) comes up with a plan that I think.. RIGHT ON!  This book is totally going to go in a direction I didn't see... but go figure that wasn't his plan.  If it was - talk about the best of both worlds *winks*

Jillian was a special kind of character.  Sure she annoyed the hell out of me at times and I wanted to smack her but I more than understood why she felt the way she did.  Who would want to choose between two boys who when it comes down to it are the only "family" you really have?  I know I couldn't make that decision because like Jill, I would be too afraid that at the end of it all - I would lose them both.  So instead, Jill ignores the charged sexual tension, sweet almost kisses, melt your panties kisses, stolen touches, and a tummy full of butterflies and goes for the man that won't ruin what little family she has... only neither Alexander or Oliver like it - at all!

To be honest with you I don't even know how to put into words what I'm thinking about this book... it's not like I can talk about a certain character without giving something away because even I couldn't have predicted that ending because of other things that had happened... but I will say this.  I can absolutely NOT wait for the next book in the Seeing Red Series... Anyone know when that might be?

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.
