Seeing Red by Holley Trent - Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

Seeing Red
Hearts and Minds Series #3
By: Holley Trent
She married him to save face, but will it be at her heart’s expense?

Megan Coffman needs to put her divorce from one of rock and roll’s biggest womanizers behind her—fast. Dubbed “Poor Meg” by the music media, she’s sick of being pitied and thinks the best way to show the public she’s moved on is to flash her brand new engagement ring. But now she needs a man and a wedding to go with it…

Thirty-five year old Russian expatriate Seth “Red” Rozhkov likes the idea of an instant family and agrees to play husband for a year for a virtual stranger. Women just want him for one thing anyway, and it’s not happily-ever-after. A mutual friend swears if Red plays his cards right, he could have Meg for keeps. He’s willing to try.

Meg finds Red an enigma. He’s a gentle giant, solicitous almost to a fault—and the no-strings-attached sex is amazing, but she’s used to being used. What’s Red getting out of the deal? How can she trust a man who hasn’t asked her for anything in return?

Megan was known as “Poor Meg” by the music industry. Tired of being pitied at and being the center of attention by everyone. So to show everyone and divert all those pitying stares, she needed to get married.

This girl deserves her HEA. Her ex is a douche, first class! I hated him, and the way he treated not just Meg, but their child as well. Meg and Toby deserved more than what he can offer. He can go to hell for all I care. Good thing, Seth came along… It might not be in the conventional terms, but exactly what she needed.

I fell in love with Seth, he reminded me of a gentle giant. He was big, but he wasn’t a brute. He was careful with his actions, and most of all – he’s intelligent. Did I mention he was a bit nerdy too? He had already his eyes for Megan the first time he saw her years ago. That’s why he jumped at the opportunity to marry her, even if it was just a sham. It’s not only Megan he will gain, but he will have an instant family. Toby had adored him, and respected him the first time he met him. The child might not know the extent of their relationship, but he was already comfortable with Seth.

Meg thought of him as a puzzle. He’s a great guy, genuine, generous and the sex was off the charts too! But her past had made her bitter and skeptical about trusting just about anyone. What can he get out of the deal? How can she trust someone who didn’t ask anything in return?

Seeing Red was a short sweet read, perfect for your late night readings when you’d like something to read and just finish it in one sitting. If you’d like to read something short, and something you’d like to fall in love with – this might be what you’re looking for.

“Is that what you want?”

“What I want is obviously irrelevant.”

She leaned back and craned her neck up to see his dark expression. “Excuse the hell out of me? You entered this agreement willingly.”

“I did. Just as you entered kicking and screaming.”

“You haven’t seen kicking and screaming yet.”

All of a sudden, the angles and planes in his face looked sharper, more shadowed. His enlarged pupils made his hazel eyes dark, and the slight flaring of his nostrils gave her warning that she’d pushed some button he’d never before exposed to her.


She was gonna push that button again. She jutted her chin up and said, “That’s right, Red. I spend every waking moment looking for an avenue out of this thing.”

“I see.” In one second, he had her hauled up over his shoulder, and before she could register direction or intent, her tennis shoes were yanked off one by one, and he didn’t lose his stride one bit. By the time he slapped on the bedroom light, she’d lost her socks, too.
