You know how sometimes, your high school crush grows up to be an insanely famous movie star? Okay, probably not. But I do.
Back in high school, Trip Wiley's fanbase only encompassed the denizens of the nothing little suburb of Norman, New Jersey.
Ten years later, all that is about to change.
In the summer of 2000, Layla Warren is enjoying her career as a journalist in New York City (well, sort of), while Trip spends most of his time grabbing Hollywood by the balls. In the days before what will turn out to be his skyrocketing fame, they'll find themselves confronted with some life-altering choices.

Clearly the author was struggling for a way to create tension and keep the two main characters apart, and resorted to that time worn classic of 'misunderstandings'. Layla had such a complete inability to actually understand or communicate it made me lose all patience with her, and I was actually beginning to wish Trip would meet somebody else by the end of this book.
I pre-ordered Book Three before I'd listened to this one unfortunately, so I will have more hours of frustrating heroine and zero tension to get through.
Probably. The narrator was fine, it was the story that made me lose patience.
Frustration, and a little bit resentful that I'd already pre-ordered the third book in the trilogy on the strength of Book One.
If I'd read this one first, I wouldn't have bought Book Three.
There were frustrating parts in Book One of this trilogy too, especially the huge melodrama about falling in love with someone but not going to the same college (oh nooo!) (apparently meeting up at weekends, regular phonecalls, etc. are only possible for friends and casual acquaintances, but not the love of your life… *sighs in irritation*), but it was still a much stronger book. You can forgive the pair for not communicating well because they are teenagers.
To keep up that level of stupidity when they are both adults is just incredibly annoying.
Can not wait to start the third book! New favorite trilogy. If you are a child of the 70s and 80s, This is the book for you.
"Why are you breaking my heart all over again????"
To be honest, the second book is not as good as the first book, but this is still my favorite romance series ever! So much tension! So much love! I can't handle it! :)
The ending (no spoilers) is fabulous. Let's just say, I want Trip to by my boyfriend.
Ummmm....see above? :)
It did not make me cry as much of the first book...but I am still reeling from the sadness!!!!! I can't wait to read the final book!
