See Me by Wendy Higgins
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This was the first audiobook I've ever read, erm, listened to. So, while reading this review which contains my honest thought, take it with a grain of salt. I may have zoned out at some parts.
Robyn has known she was betrothed at a young age. And, unlike most kids, she's okay with it. She always dreamed of her betrothed as someone who was her perfect match. Until, her parents tell her he's a bloody leprechaun. Cool and all, but she's not really sure what she's going to do about that height difference.
As it turns out, McKale wasn't all too excited to meet her as she was to meet him, however this is the story of their relationship. How they iron out the kinks and learn to trust one another, especially in the face of adversary. Aka, those who want to ruin their relationship. (If you can really call it that adversary for 2 people who just met. I'll leave that up to you.)
I enjoyed having a Robyn's whole family involved in the ordeal. They didn't just ship her off to figure it all out on their own. They were a solid family unit who played a major role in helping Robyn and McKale find their solid ground. Robyn and her sister are especially close and have each others backs the entire book. It's so rare we see parents who aren't dead in fantasy now a days. This was a fresh breeze.
So, why only 2.5 stars? The plot literally revolved around nothing but boys, boys, boys. and when it didn't, it revolved around a backstabbing bitch faerie who wanted to steal boys. Like, hello, you are magical creatures who have problems with faerie royalty and you didn't go into that...like at all? AHH. If this was sold as a romance story, that would be all good and fine. But don't put it under the guise of fantasy. Because, of that, there was very little.
