Review: See Me by Nicholas Sparks


See me just as I see you...

Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. With a history of violence and bad decisions behind him and the threat of prison dogging his every step, he's determined to walk a straight line. To Colin, that means applying himself single-mindedly toward his teaching degree and avoiding everything that proved destructive in his earlier life. Reminding himself daily of his hard-earned lessons, the last thing he is looking for is a serious relationship.

Maria Sanchez, the hardworking daughter of Mexican immigrants, is the picture of conventional success. With a degree from Duke Law School and a job at a prestigious firm in Wilmington, she is a dark-haired beauty with a seemingly flawless professional track record. And yet Maria has a traumatic history of her own, one that compelled her to return to her hometown and left her questioning so much of what she once believed.

A chance encounter on a rain-swept road will alter the course of both Colin and Maria's lives, challenging deeply held assumptions about each other and ultimately, themselves. As love unexpectedly takes hold between them, they dare to envision what a future together could possibly look like... until menacing reminders of events in Maria's past begin to surface.

As a series of threatening incidents wreaks chaos in Maria's life, Maria and Colin will be tested in increasingly terrifying ways. Will demons from their past destroy the tenuous relationship they've begun to build, or will love protect them, even in the darkest hour?

To me, it seems like this book takes a little too long to get to the really good parts. I like books with a LOT of dialogue and this book doesn't have much of it because Colin isn't really the talkative type. I love when the author is descriptive, but there is a such thing as too descriptive. Although, as soon as you get through the first couple of chapters, it gets really good. I absolutely fell in love with this book There has not been a Nicholas Sparks book that I've read and haven't liked. I thought this one was going to be the first, but boy was I wrong!

I love love love a romance book with action in it! This book had my heart racing! There were times I literally could not put it down. It's one of Sparks' best works (in my opinion). Everyone should pick this up and read about Maria and Colin's crazy love story.
