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.
After Wendy Higgins' Sweet Evil series, I instantly fell in love with her books and her writing. I was so sad to see that series come to an end because it instantly and easily became an absolutely favorite. So when I got See Me in my hands I was so absolutely stoked to read something more by her and let me tell you it did not disappoint in the slightest! See Me is a fanciful story filled with all the elements I adore and I literally couldn't put it down.
Irish. Magic. Faeries. Oh yes, such an amazing combo! How often do we get a main boy who is not only Irish, but red-headed, extremely tall, plays a fiddle, and is adorablly shy and perfect in every way? Yeah, not so often, but that is McKale. I couldn't loved McKale more if I tried, I love how his shy demeanor morphed into strength, confidence, and sexiness. Oh and I forgot the adorable accent... unf! I want my own McKale! On his counterpart, we have Robyn Mason, who's family has been blessed with magic by the Fae. Robyn is forced to be McKales betrothed and for once, I was so happy to see a girl who is actually excited to meet her man versus rebelling. Robyn handles everything with strength and class and I don't think these two could have been a more perfect match.
More then them though, I loved all the characters we get to know... especially Rock and Cass. When I say Cassidy constantly had me laughing... it's an understatement. I just adored her and all of her outbursts and side-comments. Rock, whose real name is Ronan... like hello hotness all around. He just was another sexy and fun boy that I loved. These two together just made me smile. Then with Cass and Robyn's family I just loved them as well. The character cast was stacked to say the least.
Overall, I absolutely loved See Me and everything that came along with it. I got my fantasy world with Fae that I love getting lost in, sexy fellas, family, time to let loose, a girl I love to hate, romance, and overall a story to get lost in. Cannot wait for whatever Wendy Higgins next project will be!
