Description

Years 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, himself included, could even dream he'd turn into the Hollywood commodity that he is today.

I'm sure I don't need to tell you who Trip Wiley is. But on the off chance you've been living under a rock for the past decade, just know that these days, he's the bad boy 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.

Wonderful Story

I loved this story and the narration. It was fun taking a visit back to the 90's. The energy was great and kept me interested. Couldn't stop listening. The high school experience portrayed in this story was fun. Loved Layla and Trip and their high school friends. Lots of detail. Overall fun book. The narrator was excellent. She did a wonderful job with the characters and their personalities. Looking forward to the next in the series.

Pretty good

The book started out a bit slow and boring. As I continued to read I begin to enjoy but overall I don’t think I would’ve chosen this book if I had been able to sample it in a way that it would’ve been able to describe more in detail to me what it was about. Overall, I would say it turned out to be OK since I finished it.

Deceptive Advertising

The publishers’ description of this book did not mention that a person had to listen to the entire trilogy of books to get the whole story. It also did not mention that Book 1 only covered the one year of Layla’s senior year in high school. It didn’t mention how tedious it was going to be to listen to this girl go through all of the high school angst to get absolutely nowhere in the story!

I was 13 chapters into Book 1 before I had the sense to jump ahead looking for the book to arrive at the adult Layla and Trip. That is when I realized there is an entire 2nd book to get through before that! Now, do I bother with Book 2 (free in the romance package) or do I jump to Book 3 to satisfy my curiosity about Layla and Trip? Or do I just dump T. Torrest and move on to a more reliable author?

Per the narration, Allison Ryan was not the best casting. Her choice to perform Layla as representing herself to her peers as casual and off-hand did not work because there’s something too brisk in Ryan’s voice; a sharp clip in her speech that doesn’t leave room to incorporate Layla’s teenage vulnerability. Ryan misses the mark.

I can’t recommend Book 1 at all. Therefore, I think it would take more endurance than I have to enjoy the trilogy.

Young Love <3

Would you listen to Remember When again? Why?

Yes!!!!!!! I absolutely LOVED this book. The dynamics that build between the characters is so organic and profound. Loved the character development. I am actually SOBBING! I didn't have very high expectations when I began this book, but it blew me away!

What other book might you compare Remember When to and why?

Hmmmmm....It is a high school love romance on steroids. I am a college senior, and I usually think that high school drama is too young for my taste...but this story was very mature and real.

Have you listened to any of Allyson Ryan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first time. At first I wasn't sure of what I thought about her, but she really grew on me.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Remember When:
First Love is Always the Truest Love

Any additional comments?

I am positive I will read the entire series!

My new Fav series!

This was a cute coming of age love story. It took life and they had choices to make. Strong characters. And a believable story line!

Not great unless you want to read all three

I love a good series, but I prefer each book to stand alone, and this one obviously does not. the book begins in the present time but never returns. I kept hoping to be given even a tiny clue as to where the path would lead, but, for all the reader knows, it was a high school love story, and the two characters (one now famous) never spoke again.

Made me "Remember When"

Narrator really got into each character, so real. Brought me back to high school with all the references to items back in high school, blown out hair, boom boxes, movies....Loved it!

The story of Layla and Tripp, a nice, slow burn!

Under seasoned dish.

This book was like listening to Layla's diary the story focuses on the randomness of bud relationships. In the end I'm confused about who Layla really is and wish that we got more of the characters sans Trip. While the narrator did a good job reading the story I don't think she set the right tone for the characters, Layla seems a little softer that how the narrator read her. I'm not sure that that's the narrators fault since the character is a contradiction in itself. I'd have to say that I was bored with how the book was written but I even contradict myself by saying I still want to hear the trainwreck of a story out. I have invested myself into their story hoping it will pay off with the romance novel feels.

A Heartache

This book made me so sad!! The entire story is so sweet and nostalgic, it made me miss my childhood and ache over the years I'll never get back.. In addition it tells of growing pains, of longing, misunderstanding, saying goodbye, and most of all – of a love that only began and was nipped at the bud. The fact that Trip became famous and successful and she is watching him from afar made it worse. Although some of the scenes and dialogues were hilarious and I laughed out loud..I hope the next book is more optimistic.
