Blog Tour 'See Me' by Nicholas Sparks


Today I’m super excited to participate in the Blog Tour of ‘See Me’ by Nicholas Sparks. ‘See Me’ is the new book by the bestselling author of ‘The Notebook’, ‘The Lucky One’ and ‘The Longest Ride’. ‘See Me’ was published on October 13th.

About the Book:


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26141253-see-me
Bestselling Author Nicholas Sparks returns with another classic love story of second chances and love tested. 

Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. At twenty-eight, he's focused only on
walking in a straight line - getting his teaching degree and avoiding all the places and people that
proved destructive in his past. The last thing he's looking for is a relationship. But when Maria Sanchez, a hardworking lawyer and daughter of Mexican immigrants, crosses his path one rainswept night in North Carolina, the foundations of his carefully structured life are completely upended.

Before the couple has a chance to envision what a life together might be, ominous reminders of events in Maria's past begin to surface. And as the threat of violence begins to shadow her every
step, she and Colin will be tested in increasingly terrifying ways.

Will their respective demons destroy the tentative bonds they've forged, or will their love
protect them, even in the darkest hour?

This book is available at Bol.com, Amazon UK, Amazon US, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, BAM and IndieBound

My Review:


I’ve been a fan of Nicholas Sparks for a long time. I’ve read a couple of his books and I’ve watched all his movies. I just love everything about his stories. So when I received an email about if I wanted to be a part of the blog tour of his new book… I was more than excited!! I jumped up and down around our living room and I think I even screamed a little. Yep.. I admit.. I was totally having a fan girl moment. So when I received the beautiful Sphere copy of ‘See Me’, I couldn’t wait to start reading.

In ‘See Me’ we meet Colin Hancock, a twenty eight year old who had a very aggressive an troubled youth. Now he is given a second chance in life, and he is doing his best to change his ways. Colin has started college, works hard for his money and works out more than three times a day. And above all he is getting his anger issues under control.
Maria is working hard in a respectable lawyers office. She studied hard all her life, visits her parents regularly and she is very close with her younger sister. To the outside world, Maria lives the perfect life.
Colin and Maria couldn’t be more different, but when life throws them together there is an instant attraction they can’t deny.

The thing with Nicholas Sparks his writing is that when you start one of his books you just need to keep reading until the book is finished. ‘See Me’ is no exception. From the very beginning, I was hooked to every page of this book. The setting is beautiful and the characters are very memorable. But what I loved most about ‘See Me’, is the way I really started to care for the characters and felt like I knew them. Although Colin doesn’t sound like a nice character when you first learn about his background, I really came to love him and especially the way he talks with people. Colin is honest against everyone and no matter what. Very impressive.
Maria is a character I could really relate to.. She’s ambitious, works hard and she can worry about everything. And when she meets Colin, she really doesn’t know what to think of him. She doubts herself and above all she doubts the way she feels. I really enjoyed reading about Maria and especially the way she interacted with her family.

The romance in this book is really sweet and touching and I really loved every minute of it. There is also a little mystery/thriller part going on in this book, and it really kept me hooked unto every single page.
Yes, this is definitely another great story by Nicholas Sparks. And have you looked at that beautiful cover yet? I definitely recommend this book.. It’s amazing!
