Say You’ll Remember Me
YA Contemporary Romance
Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry was a swoon-worthy romance that left me sighing after I turned the last page. A must-read and highly recommended pick from PJV.
I’m a big fan of Katie McGarry, and her recent edition is no exception. SAY YOU REMEMBER ME is a slow-burn YA contemporary romance that will have you swooning over Drix, while your heart is breaking over his circumstance. I truly enjoyed the story, the characters, and the twists. The romance was also quite lovely. McGarry has a way of bringing together two unlikely characters, and you would think it would get old after awhile, there are only so many ways to write the bad-boy meets good-girl story-lines – but each one gets better.
This story is about Drix and Elle. Drix is getting out of Juvenile Detention, paraded in front of the cameras because he is one of the governor’s poster-boys for a new rehabilitation program. Elle is the governor’s daughter. If there was ever a match-not-made to perfection, it’s the couple. They meet by chance, are attracted to each other from the start, but their situations, station in life, and the baggage that they both are dragging along interfere with that attraction.
It was a highly pleasurable story, and Ioved reading about Drix and Elle and everything they had to overcome to be together. I also liked the side characters that McGarry introduced, and I’m sure at some point they will get their own stories. Can’t wait to read them!
I hate the word beautiful. Hate it. The word beautiful somehow gives the world permission to make wrongful assumptions about me, like that I don’t have a brain. Beautiful somehow gives men permission to say the phrase as a secret password in my direction, and I should therefore fall at their feet. Beautiful makes people believe they can say anything they want about or to me and that I shouldn’t be angry. Nothing in the universe could be more wrong.

When Drix was convicted of a crime--one he didn't commit--he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the new 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.
