It only took a few pages for me to feel like Robyn was a kindred spirit and that Cassidy was the little sister we all wish we had. Cassidy would pipe up with some comic relief whenever things were getting tense. I laughed out loud several times! But then there was McKale, who has also known about the arrangement his whole life, but has not always looked at the positive possibilities of it. He plays the fiddle, acts shy and seems like a complex man living a simple life, but I still swooned at his show of respect and chivalry.
I have such a renewed passionate love for all things Irish after reading this story. I already know what I will be doing next St. Patrick's Day, reading See Me again!
I really liked the “arranged marriage” aspect of this book; it made it feel very different. Rather than just stumbling upon McKale and falling in love with him, Robyn is introduced to him and expected to marry him! So the book is about Robyn managing this expectation, trying to keep an open mind, and gradually falling in love with him anyway. I’ve seen some review where people despise this aspect. They hate the arranged marriage and they hate that Robyn is kind of okay with it. So I guess opinions will vary and all that jazz.. If you think it will bother you, I don’t recommend the book. But I found it kind of fun and unique.
I have some mixed feelings about the second half of the book. On the one hand, I REALLY like how the romance progressed. It got super sweet! I love how you can clearly see McKale’s character development. He went from being a shy, tentative, hesitant guy, to one with a lot more confidence. It was an excellent progression. I wasn’t crazy about McKale in the beginning because he was a bit boring, but as he got more confident I found myself really loving him! There were some great parts of the romance that had me giggling with giddiness and excitement!
But, on the other hand, I feel like the non-romance part of the plot really lulled in the middle. Things got a bit boring and uneventful. I was also disappointed that the Faeries are never really explored. Even after reading the book, I feel like they’re a mysterious bunch just off to the side. I never really understood their role in the universe, what they do, or what their lives are like. They clearly weren’t the focus of the story, but they were so interwoven in the plot that it was weird we got so little information about them.
Overall, I’d say See Me was quirky and fluffy. It has a few ridiculous moments, but I suppose that was part of its charm. It doesn’t have the best world building in the universe and some plot points may really piss people off, but they mostly didn’t bother me.
=== I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK IF… ===
* You want a fun, sweet, fluffy romance.
* You like the idea of a successful arranged marriage.
* You like Irish things.
=== I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT IF… ===
* You’re an insanely passionate feminist. The Leprechaun society sees women as belonging in the kitchen and not on the sports field (as one example).
* You want incredible faerie world building (it's lacking in this book).
Character wise, I didn't personally feel a connection to any one character, though I enjoyed reading about all the characters. I liked Robyn, and the relationship she has with her parents, and her sister. I liked McKale, and loved the humor McKale's friend, Rock, brought to the story line. Rachel is a human with a special magical fae abilities, something readers learn more about when the read the story. She's athletic, out going, and very close to her family. She's not going into this arranged marriage blindly, but she is trying to make the most of the situation she and her family have been forced into. McKale is not your typical Leprechaun. He's not the cute little Leprechaun you see pictured on the box of Lucky Charms. He was a character that took a bit for me to warm up to. He is the rather shy, quite type, and I kind of liked that about him. At first he comes across as a bit standoffish, and guarded. When I found out more about him, I didn't blame him for that. However, as the story progresses, so does McKale. I liked the character he became.
Normally I'm not a fan of storylines with arranged marriages, but this is a story about Fae, and their interactions with the various groups who make up this story. From the get go readers understand how this arranged marriage came to be, which the Fae have a part of. I liked about how Wendy handled the arranged marriage situation. Robyn and McKale weren't forced to rush into the marriage, and their families supported them getting to get know each other first. Through their getting to know each other process, Robyn and McKale start to trust each other more, learn to open up to each other, and slowly start to fall in love. Also during this time, Robyn is able to learn more about McKale's way of life, and the roles each of those who belong to his clan, have. I also liked getting to know the characters through this process as well.
Romance wise, I missed the hot burning romance that Wendy is known to write, but, the romance that took place in this book was perfect for the characters in this story. It's not a rushed romance, but one that takes time to develop. The way that Robyn, and McKale are written, it would have ruined what they had, had it been a rushed romance. Which I know sounds silly being that they were in an arranged marriage. The exception to romance rule with this book, would be Rock. Who's a flirt, and a little reckless. He's the hard to resist bad boy so to speak. He's definitely a charmer.
SEE ME is a fun read. Sometimes it's nice to just sit and read an enjoyable book with out having to over think what you're reading, or feel like you're lost with the overly detailed storyline, and character developments. This story has a lot of heart to it, and I liked that it was just an enjoyable read. If you're looking for a great Irish lore, and a story about Leprechauns, romance, and Fae magic, I'd recommend picking this one up.
