REMEMBER WHEN BY: RC BOLDT
Remember When (Teach Me Book 3) - RC Boldt

Honestly I have been waiting for Tate and Miller's story since the fireworks they were throwing off in the previous book. I really enjoyed getting glimpses of their past as their current relationship progressed. Second chance romances always get me!

 

 

 

 

All the stuff Tate was holding onto was quite a surprise, and so sad to think of her dealing with it all on her own. Miller's story was also pretty heartbreaking and lonely. I can see why there was so much animosity between them in the beginning!

 

As much as I enjoy the sweet and steamy romances in this series, I think the real star of the show is the friendship. This group of people that reminds you that sometimes the family you choose is the most important. Their whole dynamic is heartwarming and I can't get enough of them! Through good times and bad they face things together and they have a lot of fun in the process. I am happy to see this group continuing to grow. Each new addition has another juicy tale in them that I just can't wait to see. And as an added bonus you get to see the couples you have already come to love continuing in their happily-ever-afters.

 

 

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Remember When 3: The Finale
Remember When 3: The Finale - T. Torrest There is something special about the love between these two. I think the thing that I loved the most about this finale was the lack of pretence, these two decided too much time was wasted, and now they were going to be together forever, no matter what. And yes there were lots of moments when it felt like they weren't going to make it, but there were also those moments when you just knew they had to. I think that Trip and Layla are just two of the most inspiring and their love is one that just touched me. I know that they have a HEA. And I don't think many people deserve it more.

Review: Remember When 3: The Finale by T. Torrest
Remember When 3: The Finale (Remember Trilogy #3) - T. Torrest

 

Synopsis

"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.

At the conclusion of the last book we were pretty much left brokenhearted when Layla let Trip slip through her fingers. After their heated reunion in New York a decade after their high school romance, Trip and Layla's connection hadn't dimmed in the slightest though their lives had new complications. After Lay breaks off her engagement to her boss and decides to follow Trip to L.A. she finds that in his haste to cover up the pain from Layla's refusal to be with him, Trip has agreed to marry someone who was not right for him.

 

"Every choice we'd ever made, every road we'd ever traveled 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." 

 

Now, with all that in mind we begin the final book in the series where we can hope, wish, and dream that they'll finally get their stuff together and be together for once and for all.

 

Thankfully, Torrest doesn't make us wait long for it as Trip's father's death brings the two back together within the first chapter. Granted, I was excited that Trip and Lay finally stopped getting in their own way to be together, but it felt way too easy.

And please, take this with a grain of salt, it's just my humble opinion. I love this series and I want to see it succeed with all my heart, but I must also be as honest as I can, even if it truly pains me to do so.

 

When reading a series I expect for the tension and stakes to increase with each book. The fact that I hold the first book in such high esteem may prove to be a detriment to the other two as it's a lot to live up to. However, the third didn't really deliver on quite what I was looking for in terms of conflict.

 

I want them to be together, sure, but I also want them to have to work for it...otherwise there's really no point in reading. For the majority of the book they are happy together, which is great and I'm glad for them, however that makes it feel more like an epilogue than it's own story.

 

Set four years after the conclusion in the previous book, we miss all that immediate drama - aside from Trip's prologue, so it's like everything that happened previously has already been resolved without us having to read it. This also serves as quite a let down. I mean, you cannot make that big of a build up and then just solve it within the first few pages with an undeniable 'connection'. Great for Trip and Layla, not so much to keep me interested. I wanted them to have to keep working for it. Prove to me that they wanted it. Of course they did want it, but I really wanted to see them fight for it. Neither should have been so willing to go back to a relationship, in my eyes. There would have been a whole slew of objections and justifications that they had to work through before driving off into the sunset in L.A.

 

What conflict there was came towards the end and it seemed like it was put there just for the sake of being conflict in their relationship. Which was fine, but to me it could have been more cleanly executed to make for a more fulfilling story. If those issues had been present from page one, then it would have been so much more satisfying. As it is, however, it felt a little contrived and therefore less believable. There was also some slut shaming present, though I get where it was coming from it's still a bit of a peeve of mine. I think with a bit of fine tuning the conflict could have been more inclusive and the ending more conclusive.

 

Now, don't mistake me, please. The Remember Trilogy is one of my favorites of all time and if this puts you off of the series, don't let it. If anything, read the first book. It's one of those that changes your life and will forever be one of my favorites. There are moments in the book that are pure Trip and Lay gold, the reason why I loved these books so much is present in them.

 

“I’ve loved him as both a girl and as a woman. I have both a history and a future with this man. This man I will love forever.” 

 

Their love story will always be epic and the pop culture reference and subtle humor is what made me love this series in the first place. Both of those elements are present along with a good love story. Trip and Layla have such a unique, playful relationship that stems from their history together - that's what makes this series unique and what I love about it.

 

A movie superstar and his high school sweetheart. That even sounds great.

 

And that's what I will always love about this series. No matter what.

Review
I waited and waited for this finale since Book 2 ended in the most heartbreaking cliff hanger but after I read the first few chapters, I was so disappointed. Yes, I was so ready to just give up because I was left "wanting".

 

 

I trudged on and to my surprise I ended up putting the reunion behind me and got into Lay and Chester's love affair. I was surprised and could connect with Lay and her insecurities of living in the "limelight". It wasn't the happily ever after romance after all - instead both were met with obstacles along the way. After all this time, you would think the two of them would have learned how important it was to build a solid relationship. Nope, we had our angst and so many times, I was just waiting for Layla to pack up and give up.

 

I can't go into detail about what disappointed me in the beginning or that will give away the story, I can only say that to me......it was a bit unbelievable and a little over the top. I wanted a bit more fighting on both their parts to get together.

 

Book 2 left us that Trip left Layla a present which should have told her his true feelings toward her, but it was a bit too late and Trip got the wrong idea of Layla's feelings and took off to California again. Layla decides to chase after him but right before she is ready to leave, she finds out some devastating news about Trip and ends up giving up on reuniting with him.

 

 

Book 3 opens about 4 1/2 years later and Layla is back living with her father and is now a moderately successful author. She has resigned herself that she will be living a life without her true love until she receives a phone call.

 

She is reunited with Trip and this time he will not let her go - their love for one another is immediately proclaimed and NOTHING is going to separate them again. That is until Layla goes out to Hollywood to be with Trip. She is met with ex-lovers, sleazy producers, stalkers, indecent photographs and so much more. Her insecurities start and it creates tension between Trip and her. Between that and Trips unforgiving nature with his father and the past he won't go with Layla, it just sets the stage for trouble in paradise.

 

 

Will Trip realize how much he is hurting Layla? Will Layla get past the life Trip led while she was gone? Will Trip be able to survive with his alcoholism? These and so many other questions get answered in the finale of Lay and Chester's love story.

 

Wrap Up
I am so happy that I continued to read this book and didn't give up on Trip and Layla. I lived through them for over 15 years watching as they grew from gawky teenagers to the mature adults they were as they reunited for a third time.
