From the Back Cover
These are the words carved on the dead body of a local judge's assistant . . . the very local judge who Wick Tate is investigating as part of her undercover hacking for her not-exactly-favorite cop, Detective Carson.
Wick had thought her troubles were over.
But she should've known better.
Now she's embroiled in the "Remember Me" murder case, which doesn't stop at one body. Plus, she's got the threat of her imprisoned dad and his cronies hanging over her head, the fragile shell of a family to keep together, and new evidence surrounding her mother's suicide to dig through.
She also has to find a balance between trying to be the "good" person her boyfriend, Griff, thinks she is and the "vengeful warrior girl" her new hacker friend, Milo, thinks she's meant to be.
The pressure might be too much, as secrets—including Wick's own—climb to the surface.
Wick has persevered before. But can she do it again?--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This was such a fast paced thriller of a book! From the beginning of the page I was hooked and could not put it down. I liked the suspense, I liked the action, I liked the mystery of who's who and who's trying to go after Wick. All of it was awesome, except for the characters.
Almost all of them were such hypocritical, judgmental people, especially to Wick. I felt they had no right to act that way with her. Here she is trying to start over, but she can't because so many people are blackmailing her and all she's doing is trying to protect them. They all turned their backs on her, Bren, Lily, and Griff. I can't believe the way they acted. It was as if they were different characters because they never acted like that in Find Me. Well Griff kind of acted that way with her, and I had a feeling things would go from bad to worse for them. As for Bren, I lost all respect for her. I liked her in the first book, but she completely changed. She said some harsh things to Wick that were totally uncalled for.
In Remember Me, Wick has lost some of her sarcastic banter because she is still dealing with the trauma of her foster dad, Todd. I sympathesized with her for the most part since she's coping a lot emotionally, but I felt she started to get a little too dark at moments. There were times I felt she should have been more opened with Griff and Bren because that might have helped them understand her more. She closed up quite a bit and I felt she should have taken Bren more seriously to take counseling. Counseling does help, and I felt that she completely ignored the situation of her stress.
That's not to say I didn't like her. I liked her when she would hang out with the new boy, Milo. Milo is the new love interest. He too is also a computer tech and lives on the wrong side of town like Wick. When she hung out with him, she became more of her old self again. She was comfortable, witty, and more confident when she was around him. I'm not sure if he is right for Wick, though. Yes he's charming and they're very much alike, but he's a little too obsessed with her. It almost border lined as stalkerish.
Overall, this was a really good book! I enjoyed it despite all the characters getting on my nerves. In this book, so many people are after her: Carson the dirty cop who is blackmailing her, the drug dealers and her father's henchman, and someone who is sending her messages about her deceased mother. She's dealing with that, all while trying to figure out this murder scene and ends up getting caught up in the webs of the murderer. This is one book that will leave you on the ends your toes with all of the suspense! Don't miss out on this awesome book. It is truly better than it's predecessor, Find Me!

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!
What I Liked:
I have to be honest - I don't remember very much of book one. Not because it was bad or anything - I was on the blog tour for Find Me a year ago... a year is a long time for forget lots of things. Around this time last year, I was acclimatizing to my freshman year of college, falling for a boy whom I knew would break my heart, getting ready for midterms... so honestly, I didn't really remember much from the first book. And I thought the first book was a standalone, so I was really content with the ending, and didn't really commit details to memory.
Nevertheless, Bernard made it really easy for me to read this one with no trouble. It was totally okay that I didn't recall details from book one - I remembered the gist of things, but most names and events went over my head. Bernard introduced and reintroduced information in a way that I found helpful, with all the holes in my brain.
Wick thought she was finished with Carson and his work for her. But he blackmails her, and she starts working for him, on a new and dangerous project. Murders pile up, and Wick discovers new details about her mother's death, and Griff is pulling away from her, and everything is supposed to be great but nothing is.
The beginning of this one was slow. I remember I was at like, 18%, and thought I was much farther in than that. But after that, things really pick up. I found myself interested in Wick's mother's death, and in Milo. Those two "things" kept my interest in this book. I knew there was more to the mother's death than a suicide.
So this book balances many things - Wick's work for Carson, Wick's discovery of information on her mother's death, Wick's relationship with her adoptive mother, Bren, with Griff, with Milo. These relationships are confusing, not clear-cut at all. I love that Bernard crafted this book not only into a thriller, but a novel that explored relationships and the "real" things of life.
I also really liked how Bernard crafted Wick psychologically. Wick really is damaged, but she doesn't want to see herself as that way. She doesn't want Griff or Lily or Bren to look at her as tainted or evil or damaged. She doesn't like being dependent on anyone, but she'd rather be dependent on Carson because at least he can protect the ones she loves. At least she can do the work he wants with ease. Supposedly.
The story has high stakes, danger, murder, threats, anguish. I was literally on the edge of my bed in some scenes, like when Wick was breaking into the judge's office, or when Baines was in the house with Wick and the neighbor intervened. Bernard really made my heart pound!
The romance... well, I'm not entirely sure what to say about the romance. At first, I thought this series was a duology. So I thought that the direction that the author took the romance was weird, and rushed. But then I saw that there will be another book, and all was right in the book.
So here's the thing: there is a sort-of love triangle in this book. BUT HOLD ON. I actually think it works in this case. Griff loves Wick, Wick loves Griff, but the thing is... them drifting apart, it totally feels natural, like it was supposed to happen. They are SO DIFFERENT. Griff does not understand. Don't get me wrong, I like him a lot, and I totally ship them... but I ship Wick and Milo more.
Nothing really romantic happens between Wick and Milo. But it's there. And honestly, I'm feeling that relationship more than Griff and Wick, at this point. I don't know what the author will do, and it won't be the end of the world either way (I like both boys, and I know that Wick doesn't know what she wants in general, so I don't really care).
When I read this book, I had no idea that there would be a book three. I went on Goodreads and saw an entry for a "Trust Me"... I'm really excited about this. The author ended the epilogue of this book very dramatically. I cannot wait!!
What I Did Not Like:
I mentioned that the beginning was boring - it really was though. I was thinking, darn, this is a tour book, I can't just set it aside until I'm in the mood. But the book god better as it went along. So, a word of caution. The story dragged a lot in the beginning - just keep going!
Would I Recommend It:
If you like high-stakes thrillers, then this series in general is definitely a good one! I'm glad I decided to join the tour for this book (I wasn't intending on doing so - I was completely content with just reading book one and moving on with life).
4 stars. I wasn't dying to read this book, but now that I've read it, I cannot wait to read book three!!
If I thought that Find Me had me on the edge of my seat, and turning pages...it has NOTHING on Remember Me! Dirty cops, dirty judges, jealous boyfriends, new boys who understand you in a way no one else does...let's just say in the 24 hours it took me to read this, my mind was exploding over, and over, and over again. I didn't know what I wanted for Wicket. I mean, I love Griff. But I understand why she wonders if he will ever love her for exactly who she is, rather than what he wishes she would be. And Milo is totally adorable, in a schmexy, don't-know-if-he's-a-good-guy-or-bad-guy, kind of way. I felt so bad for her, and like I said before, even now, at the end of the novel, I'm not sure what I want for her...what should she do now? Who should she be with? Should she be with anybody?
And then there's FREAKING Carson...I've never really liked him, but I wanted to put him in a choke hold most of the novel. And really, he's not much better than the new bad guys in this story. And believe me, you won't see them coming. But I don't want to spoil any of the story for you, so I'll just leave it at that!
