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 their love protect them, even in the darkest hour?
Rich in emotion and fueled with suspense, SEE ME reminds us that love is sometimes forged in the crises that threaten to shatter us . . . and that those who see us for who we truly are may not always be the ones easiest to recognize.

Nicholas Sparks has been one of my favorite authors since I was in high school! I’m sure that can be said by almost every girl in the world lol! But then I got bored with his writing, it was the same story over and over again. The damsel in distress gets saved by the knight in shining armor and there are rainbows and unicorns celebrating their love. Ok so maybe not quite that cutesy but you get my point. It’s the same story every book.
I tried reading his book “Two by Two”, I could not get into it! I literally could not get past the first 20 pages. I had just had it with his writing, don’t get me wrong I LOVE his books…I have LOVED all of his books until “Two by Two”. His new books are always released around my birthday and it’s a tradition for my hubby to get it for me as a present! So when “See Me” came out I was reluctant to read it and didn’t end up getting it until just recently. It is fantastic!
So to get down to it, this is one of the best books that Nicholas Sparks has ever written! I have read every single book and this one is by far my favorite, because it is different! It is exciting, it is not the typical romance novel. There is kidnapping, a bad boy with tattoos and a love that changes two people for the better. Yes it is a love story but it is so different from the normal books he puts out. It will throw you topsy-turvy and you will not know what hits you!
I was so pleasantly surprised by this book! I could not believe how amazing it was and I couldn’t read it fast enough! I highly recommend this book to everyone! It is definitely a read again type of book=in my library forever!!!! 🙂
