You know how sometimes, your high school crush grows up to be an insanely famous movie star? Okay, probably not. But I do.~Layla Warren
Back in high school, Trip Wiley’s fanbase only encompassed the denizens of the nothing little suburb of Norman, New Jersey.
Ten years later, all that is about to change.
In the summer of 2000, Layla Warren is enjoying her career as a journalist in New York City (well, sort of), while Trip spends most of his time grabbing Hollywood by the balls. In the days before what will turn out to be his skyrocketing fame, they’ll find themselves confronted with some life-altering choices.
Remember When 2 is the second story in an NA romance trilogy. It will bring you back to that exuberant and riotous time of life in your twenties when you struggled to figure out your place in the world and the person you were meant to be…
…and the person you were meant to be with.
As soon as I finished Remember When I had to download the second part in this trilogy! Despite the lack of a cliffhanger, I was left feeling like it really lacked an ending, and I couldn’t wait to find out the rest of Trip and Layla’s story!
In a lot of ways, I wasn’t disappointed! I loved hearing what they’d both been up to in the nearly ten years since we last saw these two! And I loved seeing what their lives had become – as usual? Layla is painfully normal, which I love! She’s got an average job,where she probably could be farther along. She is engaged, and finally chasing her dream of becoming a journalist when she bumps back into Trip.
Now here’s the thing. (And I gotta be honest, or it just wouldn’t be a review!) I’m annoyed that everyone but Layla is on her to ditch her fiance in favor of Trip! I mean seriously – your friends haven’t met him? You haven’t told your dad you’re engaged? SERIOUS RED FLAGS!!! But, just like my issues with book 1? This can be explained away. She’s been forced to move on from Trip, and now? She is finally doing that. Sure, she doesn’t have the red hot romance with Devin she did with Trip – but she knows she needs to move on. So with that perspective? This flawed relationship is almost forgivable.
That said? This one ends on a cliffhanger! So, I’ve downloaded book three and am going to go lock myself in my bedroom and (probably) stay up all night reading just to get to the end of their story! (Because I’m a sucker for high school sweethearts reuniting – after all, I married mine!)
