Remember When Trilogy
Contemporary Romance, New Adult,
ARC provided to facilitate this review
Narrated by: Allyson Ryan
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 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.
Let me preface this review by saying that Remember When was the first full audiobook I’d ever listened to. I’ve never considered myself an audiobook fan, as a matter of fact, the one audiobook I’ve tried before nearly RUINED one of my favorite books for me, it was that bad.
But I really wanted to try this series, so I decided to give it a shot. At first, “reading” at someone else’s pace was a little frustrating. However, Allyson Ryan did a fabulous job narrating these books. She delivered this story perfectly, and conveyed every emotion so well.
In Remember When, T. Torrest brings us a sweet, funny, true-to-life story of that tumultuous time in life known as high school. Having been out of high school for more years than I care to admit, reading this story really brought me back. I’m pretty sure I actually KNEW some of these characters in school. The writing was really authentic, making these characters very believable.
And can we just take a minute to talk about the 80’s & 90’s pop culture references?? HILARIOUS.
This story was so captivating, I couldn’t put my headphones down. It was emotional without being cheesy and funny without being forced. Remember When made me nostalgic for my carefree, boy-crazy days. A story of friendships, growing up, and the game changer that is your first love.
I had to immediately dive into the next book in the series, and am currently reading Book Three. You’re going to want to buy all three books so you can plow through them all.
