Blog Tour, Excerpt, Review & Giveaway: TRIP by T. Torrest!

TRIP is FINALLY here ya'll!!!

I am thrilled to introduce you to an exclusive excerpt from TRIP! This is the brand new book from the Remember When series by T. Torrest. Layla and Trip are back at it, only this time we hear Trip's side of the story! The Remember When series is one of my top ranked series! I legit hear songs that I deem worthy of the movie soundtrack still! I read this series over a year ago and I STILL do this! (When you start making the movie, keep me in mind!) 

If you haven't read the Remember When series, I highly recommend it! (Links to buy below)

Here is my excerpt from TRIP by the amazing T. Torrest!

 By the time the bell rang, I’d solidified my place in the Alpha group. For all the places I’ve ever lived in, the formula for popularity was always the same. All it ever took was a little bit of confidence and a whole lot of ballbusting.
   Momjokes. The universal language no matter where you went.  
   Rymer came with me to pit-stop at my locker so I could grab a notebook for English class.
   “So, hey,” he said. “You play any sports?”
   “Yeah. Hockey.” I grabbed my notebook and checked my back pocket to make sure I still had my pen. “I’m checking out the Shermer Heights rink after school. Is it any good?”
   “Definitely. Hey, the bell’s gonna ring, but I’ll see you sixth period.”
   I’d already compared schedules with everyone at the lunch table and found that Rymer and I had study hall together after my next class. “Yep.”
   “And you’ve got Mason now, right?”
   “Heh. Good luck with that.” He snickered out an evil laugh as he started walking backwards, disappearing into the crush of kids barreling their way down the hall. “She’s tough, man. You’d better watch your ass with her. Just a heads up.”
   “Noted. Thanks.”


The year is 1990. Big hair and Bon Jovi, muscle cars and rock n roll set the stage for this novel. 

Trip Wilmington is the new kid in town, again. He is used to moving from city to city, and making new friends as he goes. It's his normal. He's fits in quickly with the popular crowd at Saint Nicetuis, just like his last school. There is one thing he isn't counting on at his new school, Layla Warren. 

Layla is different than any girl he's ever met. But of course, she has baggage and his name is Cooper Benedict. Coop is her on-again/off-again boyfriend. He's not interested in making room for a newby in town. 

As Trip finds his way in his new school for his final year of high school, he will learn a lot about friendship, life and most importantly, love. 

This is the story of Trip Wiley, famous actor, before he was Trip Wiley, from HIS point of view. 

My Thoughts

I have waited SO long for this book! I have obsessed over the Remember When series for over a year! This book was amazing! It lived up to all of my expectations, for real! 

I loved hearing the Trip/Layla story from his point of view. This novel fills in the gaps from the first series. This novel is filled with the same awesome writing style and passion. I just can't get enough! 

If you haven't read the Remember When series, please do! It is every teenage girl's fantasy written down in a book! Seriously! There are a lot of  80's/90's references making it just that much more fun to read. I mean, I hadn't thought about strolling the aisles of a movie rental store in ages! Which one makes me sound older? The fact that I know what a movie rental store is? Or the fact that I said "ages"? Either way, amazing book to follow an already amazing series. 500 star rating from me. 

Trip and Layla are my couple. I love them. They are relate-able and deep. They are a hot, passionate mess. They are beautiful, unpredictable and so much more. 

I do recommend this book for 18 and older.
