SAY YOU'LL REMEMBER ME by Katie McGarry
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: An emotional and sincere look at young love pushed to its breaking point.
SAY YOU'LL REMEMBER ME is the type of romance that plays with the push and pull of outside influences on a new and undeniable love. McGarry yanks at the readers heartstrings by giving us a glimpse of what could be for Elle and Drix only to tear it apart.
With many romances, there is an element of real life. However, with this book, the author manages to infuse social issues and the grit of what can happen to those that are not as privileged as others. It touches on the political games happening in the world as well as what people must sacrifice in order to help others.
Because the characters and overall story are packed with so much heart, I found it difficult not to get invested. This book is perfect for romance lovers who relish in the high drama of discovering your first love.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher and TLC Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
"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.
