See Me (See Me #1) by Wendy Higgins
While most seventeen-year-old American girls would refuse to let their parents marry them off to a stranger, Robyn Mason dreams of the mysterious McKale in Ireland, wondering how he’ll look and imagining his cute Irish accent. Prearranged bindings are common for magical families like her own, however when she travels to the whimsical Emerald Isle she discovers there’s more to her betrothal and McKale’s clan than she was led to believe.
What starts as an obligatory pairing between Robyn and McKale morphs over time into something they both need. But one giant obstacle stands in the way of their budding romance: a seductive and deadly Fae princess accustomed to getting what she wants—and what she wants is McKale as her plaything. Love, desire, and jealousies collide as Robyn’s family and McKale’s clan must work together to outsmart the powerful Faeries and preserve the only hope left for their people.
This book was just okay for me. I am a big fan of Wendy Higgins and I love her Sweet Trilogy, but this book didn’t quite measure up. I appreciate the effort and creativity that went into this story, but the end result was a bit weak.
There was nothing that really stood out for me as being great. The characters were just okay. I didn’t love them or hate them. The story was mediocre. It never fully pulled me in, but kept my interest enough to keep reading.
Overall, I’m left with a feeling of just meh. I don’t even know what else to say.
Best Aspect: Creativity
Worst Aspect: Captivity
