Hi, and welcome to my stop on the Forget Me Not and Remember Me Blog tour. Today I will be reviewing the second book in The Collective series ‘Remember Me.’ I read Forget Me Not when it was first released and if you like you can read my review of it here. Plus there is a great giveaway as part of the tour, so read on to the end to find out more about it!
Synopsis of Remember Me
An exciting new adventure from Stacey Nash, set in the world of The Collective.
When all is lost, she must remember…
Anamae Gilbert managed to thwart The Collective and rescue her father, even though his mind is now a shell. Determined to stop Councilor Manvyke hurting her family again, she’s training to become an active resistance member and falling hard for resistance fighter Jax Belfry. But things never sail along smoothly – Manvyke wants retribution and Anamae’s name is high on his list.
After a blow to the head, she awakes in an unfamiliar location unable to remember the last few weeks. She can’t believe the fascinating new technology she’s seeing. She’s the new kid at school, and although weapons training comes with ease, something feels off. Why does the other new kid’s smile make her heart ache?
And why does her gut tell her to run?
I really enjoyed Forget Me Not, the first book in The Collective series, but Stacey Nash has kicked things up a notch in Remember Me.
Mae and Will have been training hard with the resistance. She is happy to have her father back – even with his memory gone – and her relationship with the gorgeous Jax is growing stronger by the day.
But then the resistance is attacked and Mae wakes up in an unfamiliar location. She can’t remember who she is and is taken to a large house she is told is her home. She is told she is part of a secret organisation called The Collective and has been transferred to this new school because of her potential. But nothing seems familiar and nothing adds up.
Even with her memory gone, Mae was strong, more so than in the previous installment. She questioned everything and even though she played along most of the time for her own safety, she didn’t let herself be pushed around.
She is befriended by a girl named Cynnie, and I really enjoyed the friendship that developed between them. She really cared about Mae and was willing to risk getting in trouble to help Mae.
I liked Will in the first book, but now I like him even more. After his concern for Mae I started liking the idea of Will and Mae as a possible couple and found myself a bit torn about who I wanted her to be with – especially after a certain scene between Mae and Will. Will was head strong and very determined and stopped at nothing to ensure Mae was rescued.
Though I was swayed a little toward Will, I am very much still team Jax. Jax was just as gorgeous and swoonworthy as ever, and I love the chemistry between him and Mae.
And then there was that ending! Where did that come from? The direction it went very much surprised me and has me nervous about what is going to happen in the next book. There was also a BIG reveal in this book that was very exciting and sets up book three perfectly.
Remember Me was a captivating and highly enjoyable read. The characters have really come into their own in book two. There was lots of mystery, action and exciting twists. The romance in this book was sweet with some very swoonworthy moments. I highly recommend it.
