“Doesn’t matter who did it. Not anymore. I did the time. It’s over.”
When Drix was convicted of a crime–one he didn’t commit–he thought his life was over.
But opportunity came with the Second Chance Program, the governor’s newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.
Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor’s daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn’t may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.
When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle’s parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix’s messy life.
But sometimes love can breach all barriers.
Fighting against a society that can’t imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves–Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence–and each other to finally get what they deserve.

Say You'll Remember Me is yet another addictive, sexy, intense, and heartwrenching contemporary novel by Katie McGarry. When it comes to contemporary romances, I have always considered Katie McGarry a QUEEN, and this book proved that fact!
I absolutely adored the two main characters, Elle and Drix. They were both such realistic and relatable characters in so many different ways. Elle was a strong, kind, honest, and lovable character. I loved how big of a heart she had and how much she cared about the people around her. I hated it whenever people tried to control her, so it was really satisfying whenever she was able to stand up for herself. Drix was such a kind and damaged soul. He was definitely a character that I just wanted to hug and shower with love. HE WAS SO SELFLESS AND BROKEN. HE WAS SO GOOD AND LOYAL, AND HE WAS ALWAYS TRYING SO HARD TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT. HE IS MY PRECIOUS BABY.
I also loved a lot of the side characters that were presented throughout this novel, especially Drix's family. I really appreciated the fact that Katie did not focus on ONLY developing Elle and Drix. I am crossing my fingers that some people from Drix's family will find love in a possible future book. PLEASE?!
The romance between Elle and Drix was such an adorable and addictive romance. I loved watching their "forbidden" romance develop. They seemed like complete opposites, but in reality, they had so much in common, which made their relationship work so well. The slow burn of their relationship was perfectly paced and oh-so-romantic. Their dedication to each other and their faith in each other warmed my heart so much. I SHIP THEM SO HARD. I WANT 5 MILLION MORE BOOKS ABOUT THEM!
Overall, this was an honest, emotional, and gripping contemporary romance novel. If you are in the mood for a good romance story or are a fan of Katie McGarry's previous book, then I would definitely recommend checking this book out!

*This ebook was given to me in exchange for an honest review. *
Holiday smacks my arm and wrath owns her eyes. “Why didn’t you talk to her?”
I glance around at my family—Axle, Holiday, my best friend, Dominic, and his younger sister, Kellen. I’m searching for at least one of them to have my back and tell her to step off, but instead they’re curious for the answer. Even Axle’s giving me a questioning gaze, and the last thing my womanizing brother deserves is an explanation from me in my decisions regarding women.
Last time I was home, his reputation was as bad as Dad’s, minus the progeny. There are three siblings in this family, and we have three different birth mothers. Dad not only didn’t know how to use a condom, but he didn’t know how to stay true to one woman.
“I talked to her.”
My younger sister throws her arms out and drops her voice to what I’m assuming is to mimic me, but I don’t sound like an idiot. “You’re good at this.”
She resumes her normal tone which is entering high-pitched. “Seriously? That’s all you’ve got? Did you get some sort of amoeba that eats your brain while hanging out in juvie?”
I fold my arms over my chest and wonder if my sister can read pissed-off body language.
“You can still catch the girl and talk to her,” Holiday continues, proving she doesn’t care I’m silently informing her to quit. “Don’t make me chase her for you because that would be embarrassing.
Embarrassing for you. Not me. I’ll have to tell her you sent me, and because you’re a wuss, I’ll have to ask her out for you like we’re in sixth grade.”
I find myself missing the middle of nowhere. Trees, bonfires, mosquitos, mud, bears…. company that didn’t talk.
“She’s out of my league.” I haven’t spoken truer words in months. She was beautiful. She was poised. She was a cool breeze after a hot humid rain. She was that first ray of sunshine in the dark woods.
She was the smell of honeysuckle in bloom. She was the first damn thing that made me forget who I am and what I’ve gotten myself into over the past year. That means she was out of my league.
Granted, she was out of my league before I was arrested. Everything from her manicured nails, to her brand-name clothes, to her high-end purse, to the way she held herself said she was about a hundred times higher on the social and economic spectrum than me, but the person I was before would have made the play because I was smooth—just like my father.
“She is not out of your league.” Holiday hounds me. “She smiled at you. I know when a girl likes what she sees, and she liked what she saw in you.”
Tension builds in my neck. Yeah, the girl smiled, but she didn’t know what she was smiling at. I’m a pretty façade on the outside. On the inside, I’m a house of cards teetering on a bad foundation.
