Book Tour: Forever Layla by Melissa Turner Lee

9:20 PM

What if the woman you envied most is the person you are destined to become?

In 1994, high school senior David Foster was the lackey and soundboard geek for his best friend's grunge band. During spring break, the band lands a dream gig playing at a motel in Myrtle Beach, SC. David expected all the girls to ogle the guys on stage, but when a beautiful blond "Bond Girl" approaches him and calls him by name, he's shocked to find out she knows more about him than a stranger should.

She even knows about his notebooks and his visions of time travel.

What she thought was a quick time-travel-sightseeing trip takes a surprising turn when she meets the young adult version of the man she'd heard stories about as a child. His fairy-tale romance with the woman he'd loved, Layla, inspired her to accept nothing less than a love just as strong...but hopefully not as tragic. When she won't tell the younger version of him her name, he calls her Layla--and the world as she knows it changes forever.

 Melissa has wrote a book so unique, that it would just keep you reading non-stop. I mean it. I highly recommend this book since it's a mixture of a lot of genres ( YA, Contemporary, Sci-fi, Fantasy, Romance and time-travel)  When I started reading Forever Layla, I already knew it was going to be amazing, and definitely worth reading. These first impressions of mine didn't turn me down. I loved how the book was well-written and how the plot had the perfect development. The thing that I love most about David and Layla was even though there relationship was moving too fast, you would feel their hearts telling them that they have a connection. A connection, so deep that they wouldn't and couldn't leave each other even though some people are against them. One of the things I realized too was that the story seems to be predictable, but it's totally different from what you would think will happen next. This is the first time I have read any of Melissa Turner Lee's books, and I now know who my next favorite author would be. I would say that all the beautiful adjectives there are, aren't even enough to describe how brilliant this book is.
