I had the pleasure of reading this amazing book before release. Let me tell you, it was another 5 STAR read from Torrest! When we first met Layla and Trip they just could not seem to get their feelings across for each other properly. It was in high school when they first met and first fell for each other. Finally, by the end of the novel, the two finally came together and admitted their love for one another. With only one issue in the way of their love... Life was taking them in two complete different directions.
In the second novel, several years have passed. They have both moved on with their lives. Layla and Trip are engaged...to other people! Ugh! So frustrating! I spent the entire first book yelling at my e-reader just waiting for them to get together, and now, I did it again! However, now they are adults and the situations are even more steamy and intriguing. They both miss-communicate again, and almost miss their chance (or so I hope).
I had a few LOVE it moments and a few HATE it moments as always. I just get so into the novels Torrest writes that I tend to get slightly emotional over the whole thing.
"He literally did a double take, shaking his head in a futile attempt to rid himself of the sight of his old friend standing before him. I guessed he remembered me after all"
-Layla from Remember When 2
Yay! After only a few chapters (a few too many in my opinion), Trip finally makes an entrance. LOVE it! The chemistry these two have is still so amazing that when ever the two are on the pages together you are forced to continue reading without any other thoughts. Dishes? Pft! Not with Layla and Trip steaming up my e-reader!
"But for the time being at least, we were able to sit in relative obscurity in a booth at some no-name eatery on 45th, polishing off the rest of our late-night snack. Seemed like old times, just sitting in a diner with Trip, as we licked the last remnants of whipped cream off our lips. Off our own lips. Just wanted to be clear on that."
Layla from Remember When 2
As always, Torrest has a way with words that make you giggle to yourself as you read. Comical thoughts placed here and there to keep you smiling through your anger at the fact that these two characters with such huge chemistry just can't seem to forget their worries and get together all ready.
OK. So I absolutely loved the whole thing. The only thing I hated was the fact that they still have conflicts to hurdle over in order to have that 'happily ever after' moment that we have all been waiting for since reading the first novel in this series. But I'm sure that moment will arrive once and for all in Remember When 3 (Hopefully)!
This novel is due to be released today! So go get your hands on a copy!! You definitely will not regret this read! And keep your eye on the blog, I'm hoping (crosses fingers) to have a review up for Remember When 3 when it is released! Amazing work Torrest!
