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.

Remember When REVIEW
Remember When is the first book in a trilogy that I recommend reading sequentially and directly after one another because they set the stage. In fact, book one reads much like a prequel with no clear direction except to give background for the coming love story. I enjoyed the book with its engaging and realistic teenager characters. The narrator nailed the subtle New Jersey accents without overdoing it. Her voice was complimentary to the younger age of the characters and was nice to listen to. Once coming to the end, I was immediately ready to move on to book 2 which is also available on audiobook.

Remember When Two REVIEW
The second book in the series takes off, moving quickly where the first moved slowly. Now adults and ten years later, the two main characters come together once again. The same magic is there and the narrator again nails the story-telling. There's a charming quality that radiates out from her voice and makes it possible to listen continuously without needing to take a break. This is a quick read, mostly because readers will want to know what happens for the couple. The depth the author provided through book 1 added depth to the characters so that they now feel very familiar. Readers will cheer them on. Then it ends with a cliffhanger so be ready to grab book 3.
