Synopsis:

In the sequel to Find Me, Wick Tate, sarcastic teen hacker, is back and once again dealing with criminals and corrupt cops…and a brooding new love interest. Will Wick persevere when some secrets refuse to stay hidden?

Wick had thought her troubles were over.

But she should’ve known better.

Not only is she embroiled in a new murder case, which starts with a body with “Remember Me” carved into it and doesn’t stop there, but she also discovers new evidence surrounding her mother’s suicide…which leads her right back to her imprisoned deadbeat dad. And she has to deal with her flirty new hacker friend, Milo, sniffing around—which her boyfriend, Griff, isn’t too happy about.

The pressure might be too much as secrets—including Wick’s own—climb to the surface.

Remember Me is an edge-of-your-seat thrilling read that’ll have readers turning the pages at lightning speed! The paperback of Find Me is on sale simultaneously, and a digital original novella from Romily, featuring Griff, is on sale just a few weeks before

Quick & Dirty: Suspenseful sequel that I couldn’t put down! I loved every minute of this story and I would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a great YA mystery!

Opening Sentence: Somehow I think I always knew I’d get arrested.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

Wick Tate thought that her life was finally going to be normal. Her criminal father is finally behind bars, her and her sister Lily got adopted into a loving family, and she has an amazing boyfriend that totally gets her. Things were looking good until Wick is dragged into another murder investigation.  A body has been found with the words REMEMBER ME carved into it.

Wick doesn’t want to help solve anymore murder cases, but it looks like she doesn’t really have a choice.  Detective Carson is requiring that she use her special hacker skills to help him and he is blackmailing her, threatening to harm her family if she refuses. As the pressure builds things start to unravel and Wick soon realizes that living a normal teenage life just isn’t in the cards for her. The past always has a way with catching up to you and Wick can’t seem to stop herself from pushing everyone she cares about away.

I loved Wick in the first book and I was so happy that I was able to be inside her head again. She is a snarky girl with lots of attitude, but she is also a very caring person that is always trying to do the right thing. You get to see a different side to her in this book which I really liked. She is finally in a stable environment and she doesn’t know how to handle it. There is a part of her that is really struggling with who she wants to be. Not everything in life is black and white, and the grey really has Wick confused.  Her talents with the computer can help a lot of people, but it can also be used to hurt people. Deep down I think that Wick is a good person but with the situation she has been given it is hard to be perfect. I loved that she is so flawed, but that doesn’t stop her from always trying to be better. She doesn’t let many people into her life but she would do anything for the ones she does. I really respected Wick and she has quickly become one of my favorite heroines!

Griff is just as charming as ever and I didn’t think it was possible for me to love him more but I was wrong. He is someone that you can really look up to because he is such a good person. He looks for the best in people and doesn’t let his anger get the better of him. But his best moments are when he is with Wick! He is very protective of her and he is supportive even when he doesn’t agree with what she is doing. They have extremely hot chemistry and I personally think they are perfect for each other. But their relationship has some obstacles that come up throughout the story and I am really hoping that they can work through them.

I will be honest, I wasn’t very happy at first that there was another boy competing for Wick’s heart, but Milo quickly grew on me. He is very similar to Wick and in a way understands her like no one else can. He is gorgeous, funny, and very intelligent. He brings out a more dangerous side to Wick that was interesting to see. I think that Milo is really good for Wick because he gives her an opportunity to choose who she really wants to be. Milo definitely isn’t Griff, but he has some great qualities and ended up being a great asset to the story.

Remember Me was an action packed mystery that was impossible to put down. I really enjoyed Find Me, so this story had some pretty big shoes to fill, but it lived up to all my expectations. The plot was full of suspense and the ending totally took me by surprise. I instantly reestablished my connection with all the old characters and quickly grew to love all the new ones. Bernard’s writing style is very engaging and I have become a huge fan of her work. The only negative thing I have to say is the ending was complete torture, and I don’t know how I am going to wait a whole year to read the last book. I would highly recommend this series to all mystery fans, it is one of my favorites in this genre!

Notable Scene:

Two women crash into me and I stumble. Bren’s pulling me away, but I can’t stop staring. I can’t believe what I’m seeing.

It’s a dead woman.

She’s dressed like an angel and propped into a sitting position underneath Bay’s enormous grinning photo graph. More people plow into us, running for the door, and Bren tugs me close, using one palm to shield my face from the sight. Too late. I close my eyes and the curl of body blooms behind them. The dead girl’s dress is torn halfway off, her chest is bloody, but you can still read the words someone carved:

REMEMBER ME.
