    The queen of epic plot twists is back with yet another—bold, highly addictive, fast-paced, in-your-face—suspense novel riddled with delicious tension and an underlying sexiness. I dare you to even attempt to savor this one. No matter how hard I tried to pace myself, I just couldn’t do it. I devoured her words like a bag of my very favorite guilty pleasure—sweet, ooey-gooey, melty and warm peanut butter M&M’s.Whether you’re a diehard S...

    4 StarsAs a LONG time Sandra Brown fan, I was beyond excited to get this ARC.BEYOND.So let me just say that I am so, so, SO relieved to have enjoyed this thing. For real though. I have been reading hardcore since I was nine years old.And I started picking up books by my favorite classic romance authors when I was 12...my mother passed away that year and romance and fantasy novels offered an escape from pain that no 12 year old is emotionally equi...

    4 STARSSo I’ve been on a SB binge for some time now. The truth is, I had to take a break from contemporary romance for a while. Stories became repetitive, plots worn out, endings predictable, characters flat, emotions fake, writing styles simplistic and clichéd.Or so it felt like it.Ever seen Groundhog Day?If you have, then you know what I'm talking about.Lather, rinse, repeat. The same story over and over and over again.Or maybe, I’m the pr...

    After looking at Sandra Brown's books so many times I have finally taken the plunge and read her new upcoming book Seeing Red and have now read my first romantic suspense in a very long time. I usually shy away from anything romantic but curiosity got the best of me and I gave this one a try and I am glad I did.Seeing Red is a suspenseful, sizzling web of conspiracies, plenty of suspects and motives with danger lurking behind many twists and turn...

    3.75 stars.It sort of pains me to do this review. Honestly, I was a l little disappointed with it. I guess, having read nearly 60 SB books, you have to have one or two duds. Not that this was a dud, per se, but it was a little disappointing. The Prologue was fabulous and maybe I was expecting the whole book to be as fantastic as that.I never really warmed to either character. Not even Trapper who should usually tick my boxes. Alpha, asshole.I am ...

    5 STARSFirst off, I would like to sincerely thank Netgalley for the rare and precious ARC! I don't get them often, so imagine my thrill when I saw this baby! I will start out by saying that I am a huge fan of Sandra Brown and her gritty romance murder mysteries. But I want you to know that I'm not going to slap a 5 star rating up there just because I love the author's previous books, and because I am grateful for receiving this early release. (ev...

    I’ve just recently started picking up Sandra Brown books again. I still remember her steamy romances from long ago – they were STEAMY!!! Now her books are more suspense and thriller than romance, at least that’s what I thought while reading Seeing Red.Seeing Red was definitely suspenseful and thrilling. I loved the plot, and John Trapper kept me guessing more than once. He was fantastic – I truly loved him. He always had a plan. I never k...

    OMG! You all are in for a treat!! Seeing Red just jumped to quite possibly my favorite Sandra Brown book to date. Let's just say I'm on a major book high. Ms. Brown has outdone herself with this mixture of suspense/thriller, mystery, and romance. I have so many passages highlighted and mainly for their humor. The straight-faced banter, sarcasm, and [email protected] you's are just too much fun. And the characters! Please allow me to introduce you to John Trap...

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 STARS ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Fucking genius!It shouldn't come as a surprise having read a few Sandra Brown's before and yet I'm still amazed at how she nonchalantly places the pawns and makes me suspect every character in the book. By now I guess she would become somehow predictable... except she's anything but. She more than deserves her titles of 'Queen of plot twists' and 'Queen of Mystery'.Only 30% in and my mind was already reeling...

    Seeing Red is a romantic suspense that I didn’t find romantic or all that suspenseful. Maybe my expectations for this were too high, but I didn’t fall in love with either of the characters of broadcast journalist Kerra Bailey and former ATF agent John Trapper—maybe this was why I didn’t feel the heat between them or much care if they got together.The premise was intriguing enough: Kerra is interviewing Major Trapper (John’s dad), who wa...

    Do I even need to write a review for this?I mean, It's a Sandra Brown book. Isn't that a review in and of itself?! This one here checks all the boxes of your typical SB book: ☑ A woman, just going about, living her life, then all of the sudden finds herself thrust in the middle of a shit storm, where she has to be constantly looking over her shoulder and be aware of everyone around her. ☑ A handsome, suspicious, short-tempered asshole man, ...

    Sandra Brown is another favorite author of mine. Her writing is FABULOUS. I was patiently waiting for Seeing Red to be release and praying it would be as intriguing and enthralling as her other writings. I am here to tell you that SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT! If you enjoy reading Romantic Suspense, SB has to be one of your top authors. She is truly the queen of suspense and crazy twists and turns. And she never disappoints with her leading men. John T...

    A giant THANK YOU to Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for my very first Sandra Brown ARC.I was more than thrilled to receive an ARC of Sandra Brown's new novel, Seeing Red -- a better description probably being giddy and goofy like a silly girl in love! I could barely contain my excitement. She's been a favorite author of mine for over 30 years. Label me a fangirl because I truly am, and I've read all her books -- even those sappy love stor...

    At the 25th anniversary of the Pegasus bombing Kerra Bailey, a local reporter wants to interview the national hero Major Franklin Trapper, who saved along with others a 5-year-old girl from the building. The Major though had refused all interviews the past few years and Kerra’s only hope to meet the Major was through his son, John Trapper ,an ex ATF officer who now ran a detective agency. After the interview an attempt was made at Kerra and the...

    I thought the whole plot of this book was really good. So many twists and turns. It had me questioning myself at every turn. Now the bad news....I did not connect with any of the characters. The H was such an egomaniac that he needed a foot up his butt. The h was just ok for me. I truly love SB and usually connect with at least one of her characters, but not this time. I give it 4 stars for the storyline and suspense.

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I enjoyed this book quite a bit! I have been a long time fan of Sandra Brown. Before I owned a kindle, started a blog, or had a goodreads account, I read Sandra Brown. I kind of feel like we go way back. I haven't read all of her books but I usually keep up with her annual release every year and try to squeeze in books from her backlist when I get the chance. I went into this book exp...

    Most readers have a list of "go-to" authors they can count on to delivery an amazing read every single time. Sandra Brown places very high on my author "go-to" list. And once again, she delivers an intriguing read in Seeing Red - complete with flawed characters, sexual tension, and a plot laden with lies, secrets, and conspiracies that kept me guessing until the end.Kerra Baily is a smart, tenacious, by-the-book, rising television journalist on t...

    I was really hoping to like this book more than I did. I liked the story overall but felt it started to drag when I got more than 1/2 way through it. For this reason I'm giving it 3 stars.

    Seeing Red by Sandra Brown was a really good suspense/mystery/thriller book. One of those books you look at the time and realise its way past your bedtime and you still have to read on to see who is the good person and who is the evil one, and how did it all go down.Kerra is a news anchor and a good one, she wanted and got an interview with Major Franklin Trapper, and she has an ace up her sleeve that is going to helped her achieve that. What she...

    Full Review...3.5 Stars. 'Seeing Red' is an interesting, well written story. I’ll give Sandra Brown props for being able to give the reader intriguing and strong-willed characters in Trapper and Kerra; and making you care about what happens to them. Problem is, the plotline itself was just so mundane. No real action, suspense, or thrills. A rather routine story laid out methodically to the outline of several other recent Brown suspense novels. ...

    4,5 Stars! Another great story by Sandra Brown. I cut down a star cause I didn't felt the chemistry and the connection between the main characters, not that I didn't like them, but after Mean Streak I don't settle with less than "epic hotness" any more from SB. The mystery is well orchesrtated, as expected, not many unexpected twists IMHO (view spoiler)[I had suspected who the hidden villain was before his big reveal (hide spoiler)] except the on...
