The whole book is a look into Layla's past from 1990 when she was starting her senior year in high school. And that was the year she met Trip, a very famous and desirable Hollywood star.
Layla and Trip became the best of friends but both knew there was more to it than friendship yet neither of them dared to acknowledge it. Throughout that year, Layla struggled with her feelings for Trip and the fear of her life changing completely after graduation.
This book was so cute and sweet but mostly hilarious. The comedy in it was outstanding! It totally cracked me up more times that I can count. Layla's peculiar way to narrate and her eighties references were just too damn funny.
As for the characters, I really loved Layla. She was so quirky, sweet, funny, and strong. Anyone could easily relate to her story as she tried to cope with the choices she had to make, the changes she had to accept, the loses she had to endure, and the fears she had to overcome. So I'm really looking forward to her happy ending in book three.
Now Trip, he was definitely eye candy for sure, yum! From this book I could easily see how his confidence, striking good looks, and talents made him to be a Hollywood star that we'll see in Remember When Two. However, when it came to Layla I wish he had been more upfront and honest with his feelings for her. So in the book two he has yet to steal my heart!♥
Even though the book ended in a cliffhanger, one that we already knew from the synopsis, the story leaves you with hope and eagerness to know what Layla's present has in store for her. I can't wait to start Remember When Two so I'm diving right in! :)
"I was sure most of the girls in school were drooling at Trip from afar. And yet, lucky me, I was afforded actual access."
"Layla, you are completely different from any other person I’ve ever met in my entire life."
"Being wrapped up in the arms of someone you love is just about the greatest feeling in the whole wide world."
"Nothing compared to the sense of accomplishment I felt- no award, no ribbon, no trophy- no achievement lived up to the unfathomable triumph of having won the heart of Terrance C. Wilmington III."
"Don't ever ask me to stop loving you, because I can't. Don't ever think I'll be able to forget you, because I won't."
