Overview

"I'd spent too long in limbo.
It was time to put The California Plan back into effect."
~Layla Warren

I've been in love with Trip Wiley since I was sixteen years old.
Yep. That Trip Wiley.
Academy award-winning actor, known philanthropist, People's Sexiest Man Alive two years running...
Yeah.
It's not like I'm some delusional stalker-fan. It just so happens that he was my high school sweetheart back in 1991.
In the years since, he's simply been The One That Got Away.
We just can't seem to get on the same page at the same time.
Our timing may have sucked, but the feelings had already been confirmed. Years ago.
At least his were.
He doesn't know that I had chosen to love him back.
I need to fix that.
And I need to do it now.


Remember When 3 is the third and final book in the Remember Trilogy.
It's a story about taking chances and following your heart...
and knowing that sometimes, you just have to learn when to let go.

**Intended for ages 18+ due to some questionable language and graphic sex.**

Loved this trilogy! I'm looking forward to reading more by this author. The story had a comedic flair to it that wasn't childish like some other books I've read. I enjoyed the nostalgic references and sexcapades and, of course, the romance. I highly recommend this trilogy. S.A.K.

Yay I was so happy to finally read the ending of Trip an Layla's story. Also very happy their reunion didnt take forever I dont think I could have handled Layla's indecisiveness through another book. Sad to see it end.

It was beautiful, it was amazing, it was everything I wanted. I love that the author did not drag out issues. I love that it was truly about Trip and Layla. This was their story…their love story. My review is going to be very vague, very short. I want you to know very little like I did when I started reading it. I want you as the reader to enjoy and experience the moments for the first time without any knowledge of what was going to happen. I was nervous, anxious, and excited before I started this book. I love Trip and I love Layla. If there was a couple that deserved something, anything, it was them. Bottom line the way T. Torrest wrote this book, it was perfect. “He was simply Chester and I was Lay-Lay” I laughed, I cried, I sighed. So many things mentioned in this book that brought me back: Jake Ryan in Sixteen Candles. This was my favorite scene in the book. I think it was written brilliantly and showed the dynamics of a relationship, their relationship; the love of two people that developed when they were in high school to what they are now grown-ups learning to live and adapt in each other’s worlds. “Patience” by Guns N Roses I recommend this series if you have not started it. Top 5 series reads of 2013. A copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Whoa. What a ride! And… I’m a touch despondent that this Trip is over. Though that’s the thing with books, isn’t it? You get to missing a set of characters, and you can start the saga all over again with the flip of a page. Delight in the characters not knowing what’s coming next (even though you do) and pick up the subtle hints of their future that your favorite clever author has hidden like trinkets on a Christmas tree. I’ve read the first two over and over, and each time is as fresh and charming as the first. And I fall in love with Trip just a little bit more. I don’t like synopsis-style reviews, and won’t write one here, although hey, it IS the third and final book in a trilogy, so expect that there’re some happy people at the end (and no, that’s no spoiler). I wouldn’t want to diminish your enchantment. Tina Torrest’s wordsmithing is nothing short of astonishing. All told, the three Remember When books use up a little less than a quarter-million words (sounds daunting to read, but trust me, it’s not. The hours fly by). Ordinary, everyday words arranged in such a way that a whole new world, and entirely new people, are created with such reality and emotion that it’s like a meeting with an old friend. Or reliving a memory. You will become Layla, the descriptions and imagery are so vivid and that spot-on perfect. Which, of course, means that you will love Trip just as much as she does. As much as we all do. Farewell, my two favorite old friends. Until I need to visit and reminisce and tug you down off the bookshelf again. And Remember When I fell in love for the very first time, all over again.

A bit boring and definately too long (1000+ pgs). Series could have been wrapped up in two books.

Loved, loved, loved this series. Not a literary winner...but I related to all of the 90's references and fell in love with the characters. The pages flew and was sad when book 3 was over. Looking for a no brainer? These are it.

I have to say this is one of the best series that I have read in awhile. Great writing and the characters seemed real. I couldn't put these books down.

This is a review I should have written weeks ago, but I have been putting it off because I knew once I finished, I would have to finally give Trip and Layla up. I'm still not entirely ready to do it, but I can't put it off any longer. "My God, every time, it never fails. You happen to me all over again." He swiped a palm across my cheek and added, "I never stopped loving you, Lay. You were always with me. Everywhere." It's no secret to anyone who reads my reviews or follows my blog that I fell head over heels with Trip, Layla and this series from the minute I picked up Remember When. I connected with them in a way that almost made it as though they were more than characters in a book, they were more like friends. I was invested in their friendship and budding relationship. Remember When 2 broke my heart in the sweetest way possible. I was devastated and desperate for the third and final book. After two books of the "back and forth" of Layla and Trip, it was fantastic to read the story of them as adults, in love. It was long overdue. "Suddenly, in that one flash of time, everything had become excruciatingly obvious. Every choice we'd ever made, every road we'd ever travelled brought us to this place. Every bad decision, every stupid screwup, every bit of drama. Every beautiful second together, every miserable hour apart… led us here. All the tumblers had unexpectedly fallen into place, unlocking our fate with an almost audible click! and we didn't realize how much our lives had been on hold until that moment. We loved each other. We belonged together. And we were finally, finally ready to acknowledge it." We don't make it very far into Remember When 3 before Trip and Layla are finally ready to face their feelings, admit them and make a real go of a relationship with each other. Thank goodness. I don't think I could have taken the agony of waiting any longer for two of my all-time favorite characters to be together. Oh and when they were together? It was hot. ::fans self:: Their relationship was far from perfect. There are outside forces and misunderstandings and miscommunications, but that's what made their relationship so realistic. They both hurt each other deeply in the past and sometimes those feelings and insecurities creep into the present. They have to be willing to let those parts of the past go to move forward. "You were my first love, babe. I want you to be my last." "I know you love me, Chester. I love you, too. More than anything." "I'm not me without you." I'm not going to get bogged down in plot details. Though we all know where this story ends up, the journey is the most beautiful part. It really must be experienced for the full impact to be felt. Let me just say that fans of Trip and Layla will absolutely love this book. It's absolutely unputdownable. This entire series is one I will read over and over again for years to come. Remember When 3 was everything I wanted and more. Some of our old favorite characters popped up again. The book was filled with the humor and heart I've come to expect from Tina. I love her 90s references. They always manage to bring back a memory and put a smile on my face. The writing was beautiful. Sometimes funny, sometimes sexy (*really* sexy), the story was heartfelt and heartwarming, even when I wanted to yell at Trip and Layla for being ridiculous. This entire book took me through every single emotion possible, but it's nothing compared to what the ending did to me. It was sheer perfection. The final two sentences literally took my breath away, gave me chills - and left me with happy tears streaming down my face. Most of all I want to say thank you to Tina. Thank you for sharing Layla and Trip with us. Their story was real and beautiful. It was impossible to not fall in love with them. It's always hard to give up characters and stories I connect deeply with, but I can rest easy knowing they're both in good hands now… each other's. :) I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Why do these reviews sound more like movie trailers trying to sell the book than give a nonbiased opinion.....
