Book Review: REMEMBER WHEN 2 by T. Torrest

4.5 LOVELY NERVOUS STARS!

Talk about an impossible romance!

In Remember When 2 Layla is now telling the story in the year of 2000. So nine years have passed since the ending of Remember When 1 and during that time there was no Layla and Trip...</3 They reunite here again but their timing couldn't be worst. There are a lot of misunderstandings from their past and major obstacles between them now in the present. Yet their feelings for each other are still there so to stay together they have to confront their fears and realize how much they need each other.

This book was so different from the first one in many ways. First, the tone was more mature since Layla and Trip are now in their twenties and life isn't as carefree as it used to be in their teenage years. Second, the story was more focused on Layla and Trip and less on other secondary characters (the hilarious Lisa still made some appearances though, I love her!). Third and most importantly, there was so much more angst in this book than in the first one. That made me feel nervous while reading because the tension and suspense were really high; I really didn't know what was going to happen! Oh, and I cried too...there were very special and touching moments that blew me away and other moments that were too damn sad.

Layla was still the funny and quirky character that she was in RM1; however, as an adult now she was also a little more insecure and a lot more stubborn than before. In several occasions, I really wanted to smack her on the head to get her to see some reason. But she was struggling with the choices she made in her life so far and questioning if she was indeed happy with hear life. Therefore, in such turmoil I totally sympathize with her. Also, that's the drama of the story and what made it so fabulous! :)

Now let's talk about Trip Freaking Wiley! He did it, he went and did what he was supposed to do: steal my heart!♥ In this book I was able to understand things from Trip's point of view and boy was I wrong before. He really opened up and put himself out there for Layla this time, he was so sweet and funny and ten times sexier now in his twenties. I loved how my perspective about him changed after reading this book; that truly shows how real the story felt and how invested I got with the characters.

I really loooved this book, it had the perfect drama, comedy, and the characters were just outstanding. The chemistry between Layla and Trip it's truly special, real, and beautiful. They are complete soul mates. That's why the cliffhanger at the end almost killed me and again I'm dying to know what's going to happen to my dear couple. But I know that Remember When 3 is going to be amazing with the epic finally that Layla and Trip deserve!♥

AN EXCELLENT, INTENSE, & FUN READ!
