This book was a hot, steamy bundle of nerves questioning everyone Jill has ever known. Seeing Black is the amazing follow-up to Sidney Halston’s Seeing Red and what a follow-up it was. This book picks up where everything left off in Seeing Red. Jill has everything she could want with Alexander. She is happy and in love and she knows that she is right where she wants to be… Xander’s arms wrapped around her and she is finishing law school. Life is pretty darn great in her world.
Jill has decided that she wants to know more about her mother so she decides finally that she will meet with her father, well that and those darn visions are kind of forcing her to deal with him. She knows in order to keep those of her safe, she needs to comply and spend some time with her dad.
And of course that’s where everything goes haywire. Her dad is a mind controlling ass. And that is putting it mildly. When I started reading this I was thinking how perfect Jill’s life was with Xander. She has no business messing that up just to find out more information about her mother. But what she discovers is that her desire to learn more about her parents mixed with her dad’s strange ways leaves her in such a bad place but completely disappearing is the last thing anyone expects to happen to her.
This book was full of so much angst and suspense, I think I chewed off all of my nails to find out if Jill was going to make it out alive and if she did, would she remember those who loved and cared for her. Would Xander still be there or would he move on? What I didn’t expect is for Paul to show back up in the picture.
This book was amazing and a great sequel to Seeing Red. I wanted more of Xander in this book. I wanted to know what he was thinking and feeling and what it was like to try and piece things together. My heart broke for him when he was alone, shouldering much of the blame for her leaving. I loved the suspense of this book, but it was almost more than my heart could take. This book took you one place with the hints of going to another, but when the drastic shift happens and you end up in that other place, it is overwhelming at best!
Sidney Halson kept my attention through the entire book and I was left in awe of Paul and Xander both for very different reason. I loved that this book was so full of suspense; I didn’t want to put it down. I wanted to make sure Jill ended up back where she belonged. Did she? UGH! You will have to read it to find out. It is well worth the emotional turmoil that sat in the pit of my stomach.

ABOUT SIDNEY HALSTON
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.
