See Me by Wendy Higgins

See Me
Author: Wendy Higgins
Published: March 17th, 2014


The author of the Sweet Evil trilogy from HarperTeen brings you a modern Young Adult folktale of Irish magic and romance.

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.


See me was a great book. This was the first book that I read by Wendy Higgins. I loved reading into the fantastical land of the Fae. 

Robyn, a girl that was told from a young age was told that she was to marry someone whom she had never met when she turned 18. Instead of being the girl to throw a fit and demand that it be change, she took it with stride. She looked forward to it. She, of course was nervous... Who wouldn't be? She slowly proves to McKale that she is there because she wants to be. She brings the change in him and who they both become are amazing.

McKale, Robyn's betrothed is a tall, red-headed Irish man.... The accent yep... Yum! He plays the fiddle and is sweet and gentlemanly. He transforms from a shy, quiet man to a man that claims confidence and shows how sexy he can really be! He plays the fiddle and he truly is a nice guy. He takes the betrothal seriously and at first he wasn't even sure that Robyn would like him. However she proves him wrong!

Throughout the story, we meet Cassidy, Robyn's sister and Rock whose real name is Ronan, McKale’s friend. They both bring comic relief to the story and I loved that. It didn't make everything so serious. Cassidy is more secure and more confident in herself than Robyn is. Rock and his pals from his clan kept me laughing out loud and Cassidy did also. Whenever they were in the scene I knew I was going to start laughing.

The rest of the cast were awesome. When things hit the fan, they came together and made it. They worked together to defeat the evil within that was threatening to mess everything up.

Overall it was a good book. I definitely liked it. Would I revisit it? No. This is the type of book where I don't think I could read it again, but that's okay. I really liked it and that's all that matters.
