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.

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.

My Review...

This book was a bit of mix of On the Island mixed with a love triangle and a whole bunch of miscommunication and intrigue thrown in.

I can't imagine living on an abandoned island for so many years especially being the years of building your foundation and who you are.  If it wasn't for Alexander and Oliver the three of them probably would never have survived their past.  But being that dependent on each other and not knowing anything different it is hard to mix the lines of being in love and friendship.

Having sometime away from each other only really confused them yet at the same time drew them back together in so many unhealthy ways.  I have to admit however Jillian' s indecisiveness was a bit torturous to the two boys and unfair.  I know she was confused but it was starting to hurt my heart watching her pander back and forth then jumping ship for a bit but she also had no support system other than the twins and she was still learning who she is an individual in the real world.

Now if this finding one's self and love triangle was not enough through in gifts of premonitions and a whole bunch of unknown elements that can threaten her new relationships of love and friendships.

It was a good story and I am hooked to find out what more is going to happen and can they all survive it together.
