Remember Me (Find Me, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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!

This was an okay story, and I did like it a little more than the previous book in the series, but in general, I don’t think this author’s books are a right fit for me.

I did like Wick a little more in this book compared to the first one. I felt quite sorry for her and the way she was obviously being targeted. It was bad enough that she was being hounded by a police detective, never mind being victimised by other people!

The storyline in this was okay, but I think the writing style is just not for me. I found the pacing a little slow, and while I wanted to know what would happen, the story itself irritated me somehow. I can’t even put my finger on what exactly it was that made this story less enjoyable for me, but it just didn’t do it for me, and it struggled to hold my attention because of that.

The ending to this was okay, but I was glad to be finished really. I’m glad that I gave this book a chance to be better than the first, but I think that really this author’s books are maybe just not for me.
Overall; okay story, but not really for me,
6 out of 10.
