Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy











{May 11, 2014}   {Review} See Me by Wendy Higgins

See MeFrom Goodreads: 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.

It’s not every day that you hear someone say that Leprechauns are sexy, but if anyone can make them so, it’s Wendy Higgins. And sexy they are in Higgin’s latest release, See Me. Going into this story, I already knew Higgins was an amazing writer, having read her Sweet Trilogy, and I expected nothing less from See Me, but I do have to admit—I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with a Leprechaun.

I absolutely gobbled up this story, reading it in one sitting as Higgins entices the readers through two main, down-to-earth characters, McKale and Robyn. Perhaps what I loved most about this novel is that it is a true romance. While both Robyn and McKale are betrothed from birth, having never met, it’s not an insta-love story. While there is instant attraction, Higgins allows time of the two to really fall for each other, spending the entire summer together, wooing and dating–amidst the impending threat of the Fae.

True to the faedom, the Summer Court is full to treachery and trickery, and McKale and Robyn find themselves in the thick of it as this novel unfolds. The faerie princess Khalistah was a character I loved to hate, and I was thankful that both McKale and Robyn turned to one another and others for help, depending on their parents and those much older than themselves in their greatest time of need. It was great to see young adults actually rely on parents for a change, and though swoonworthy, this novel is definitely a clean read, which I feel is few and far between nowadays.

It isn’t a heavy read by any means, and I highly suggest it if you’re looking for something completely different. Five amazing stars.

5 stars
