Overview

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.

Colin Hancock is intent on remaking his life, which means getting a teaching degree, working out, and avoiding people and places from his past. He also thought it meant avoiding relationships, but Maria Sanchez, lawyer and the daughter of Mexican immigrants, changes all that. Alas, something dangerous in her past threatens their happiness.

If you read the books by Nicholas Sparks, you know how he just keeps getting better (how, I don't know). Where a lot of authors lean towards a sort of pattern with their stories, Nicholas seems to keep finding different roads to take us on. See Me is, in a word, thrilling. I loved the characters, their relationships, and the descriptive writing style that made me feel like I was watching a movie rather than reading a book. I have several authors I admire, but Nicholas Sparks is in a class of his own. Do not miss reading this book...a sweet love story, mystery and suspense, overcoming challenges, wonderful family bonds, and a storyline that doesn't allow you to put the book down...simply amazing!

A little different than other N. Sparks books, but I couldn't put it down! Suspense and romance. A+

I really enjoyed this book, as I mentioned, it is not his typical book...but a nice change! It was somewhat predictable, but most books are. I found myself connecting to the characters quickly, and drawn in in no time! As always, I loved it, and am already looking forward to his next book!

I loved this story line. It kept you always wanting to continue reading. I wish he had more books that I haven't read.

I didn't think it was as good as most of his other books but it wasn't terrible. Over half way through I started to get interested in the story and I don't know about you but if I'm not into a story, it takes me forever to finish it. This book took awhile...

I have read every Nicholas Sparks book. I absolutely hated this book and found myself skimming pages just to get to the end. This is not his usual style. I didn't care about training for fights. Yuck!!!!

Although the writing style was great I was disappointed that it was not the usual lovey dovey story that makes you fall in love with love. It was more of a thriller.

It was ok. Not one of his best books in my opinion. It was a little confusing.

I only read three books by Nicholas Sparks and I plan on reading all of his books at some point, and I do like his writing, but I found this book to be really slow and kind of boring until I got to the last few chapters of the book. That's when I couldn't put the book down. I felt like there was a lot going on in the story line and it was just a bit hard to follow.. but a good read otherwise. I will continue to read his books and watch the movies!
