Forever Layla – Melissa Turner Lee – Review & Tour Schedule

Forever Layla - Melissa Turner Lee

 

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
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.

My Review:

Wow! Lovely book. It’s a page turner and soul touching book that let me dream of pure love, the time travel machine invention and the cure for cancer.
My attention was kept from beginning till the last page and I found myself laughing, crying, praying, thinking so deep & craving to read more.
This story is about an impossible love that comes true only with the help of time travel machine. It’s about pure love; sacrifice for the loved ones, forgiveness and about all of us. It’s an emotional book that let us re-think our own lives.
I love Layla and David. Also I like their special love story and sweet clever child DJ. I felt sorry for Mr. Duke.
I recommend this book to everyone and I very much appreciate the author’s work. Thank you!

There are many quotes I’ve liked in this book. Here are some of them:
“ whatever happens, the pain and sorrow will be worth it in the long run.”
“Whenever I’ve felt attracted to a guy who didn’t meet my standard, I’ve always backed off.”
“I’ve always known it was all on me to get it right. There’s no one to pick up the pieces for me. It’s all on me to do it right the first time.”
“When a guy finds out all his dreams will come true and he ends up with the super hot girl, he gets a little confident.”
“Life isn’t easy and no one is going to take care of you except you.”
“Life moves fast. It’s over before you know it.”
“It’s the job of the older woman to teach the younger ones how to love their husbands.”
“If we choose to follow one path, we also make the choice not to follow another. When we choose to add some people into our lives, it often means we choose to leave others behind.”
