See Me by Nicholas Sparks

I've been reading Nicholas Sparks books since I was in 8th grade. I'm 27. That's a hot minute. The last one I read was Safe Haven and that was yeeeears ago. I've recently been going to my library a lot and by habit I go straight to the Nicholas Sparks section. I saw See Me and decided it was time to read another of his novels so I checked this bad lad out.
Oh goodness did I love it. If you're a fan of Mr. Sparks then you know he's known for writing romance and his characters don't often fare to well. In Safe Haven he introduces more of a thriller aspect and I loved it, it's actually one of my favorites of his. See Me also has you on the edge of your seat and it kept me intrigued the entire time - which by the way is a big deal considering this book is almost 500 pages.
Colin has been in trouble most of his life and is currently at the top of a cops watch list. If he screws up at all this dude is gonna lock him in a cell and throw away the key. Even though he has a troubled past Colin is trying to better himself by exercising religiously to calm the rage and is in college with the goal of becoming an elementary teacher.
Maria is a lawyer who is working for a firm that is home to a dude who is a serious creep in the "I cheat on my wife and sexually harass pretty girls" kinda way.
The two of them meet one night when Maria is stranded on the side of the road and Colin offers to fix her tire. Funny enough Colin is in one of Maria's sisters classes and they end up meeting again and hit it off.
Throughout the book we get to watch their relationship develop and really watch them grow as individuals as well.
However while we are experiencing their love story something more sinister is brewing. Someone is following Maria and watching her every move. She begins getting threatening letters and threats of other sorts. Together Colin and Maria are trying to figure out who is stalking her before it's too late.
If you're interested in romance with an edge then See Me is for you!!
