Buy links: AmazonYears before Trip Wiley could be seen on movie screens all over the world, he could be seen sitting in the desk behind me in my high school English class.
This was back in 1990, and I cite the year only to avoid dumbfounding you when references to big hair or stretch pants are mentioned. Although, come to think of it, I am from New Jersey, which may serve as explanation enough. We were teenagers then, way back in a time before anyone could even dream he’d turn into the Hollywood commodity that he is today.
In case you live under a rock and don't know who Trip Wiley is, just know that these days, he’s the actor found at the top of every casting director’s wish list. He’s incredibly talented and insanely gorgeous, the combination of which has made him very rich, very famous and very desirable.
And not just to casting directors, either.
I can’t confirm any of the gossip from his early years out in Tinseltown, but based on what I knew of his life before he was famous, I can tell you that the idea of Girls-Throwing-Themselves-At-Trip is not a new concept.
I should know. I was one of them.
And my life hasn’t been the same since.
**Remember When is the first book in an NA romantic comedy trilogy, but there is NO CLIFFHANGER. It is intended for mature teen readers and immature adult ones due to some high school sex scenes, underage drinking, questionable language and 1980s flashbacks.**
In this story, he just wowed his hometown and stole a particular girl's heart.
I love both Trip and Layla. True, there may be an instant attraction between them but just like any other teen, they did not immediately act upon it. They're two very shy people when it comes to expressing their feelings towards one another to the point that they relegated each other in the "best friend zone".
And yet, the story does not revolve entirely around them. We also see glimpses of their friends' lives particularly Pick and Jessica. We also get to hear how it was in the early 90's, the huge hairdos, the music and just how teens were at that time.
Plot-wise, it's your typical love story but what made it interesting are the characters. They have this certain feel to them that would make you wonder if you're reading something based from a true story or is just purely a work of the author's imagination.
This book can be a stand-alone but I do advise that you read the next two books to this series. You'd get to see more of Trip and Layla's story and if their love story would only be a part of their "Remember When"'s.
