It feels like ages since I last wrote a book review, and ages since I last finished a book! I’ve been reading another Nicholas Sparks book, and the problem is, he often writes really long chapters and sometimes the books are a bit difficult to get in to! But I’ve finally got through another book of his!
That sounded like it was a bit of a chore, it honestly wasn’t! I did enjoy the book, it just took a little while to get in to it and see where it was going. 🙂
At twenty-eight, he’s focused on getting his teaching degree and avoiding all the places and people that proved so destructive in his past. The last thing he’s looking for is a serious relationship. But when he crosses paths with Maria Sanchez one rainswept night, his carefully structured life is turned upside down. And when Maria, a hardworking lawyer, meets Colin she begins to question every notion she has ever had about herself and her future – and what truly makes her happy.
Before the couple has a chance to envision a life together, menacing reminders from events in Maria’s past start to surface. And as the threat of violence begins to shadow her every step, she and Colin will be pushed to breaking point.
Firstly if you love romance and chick lit books then you should really give this a read. I often find Nicholas Sparks books to be a bit hit and miss, for example the last book of his I read (The Longest Ride) I wasn’t overly fussed about. But “See Me” was great, it was more like Safe Haven (the best book of his I’ve ever read) 🙂
The plot did become slightly predictable towards the end, but that didn’t stop me enjoying it. I loved the relationship that Maria and Colin formed too, because Colin just seems like someone Maria would usually avoid, but they were great together. Not forgetting Lily and Evan!
All in all, “See Me” was a great book, which I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys Nicholas Sparks books, romance and chick lit 🙂
