December 1985 Senior year is really shaping up to be something. In an effort to turn my humdrum life around, I decide to take a walk on the wild side.

Review by Lisa Kane
I loved this this throwback to the '80's romance series. I love the products shout outs and the fashions and the music and the whole '80's vibe.

The first two stories were Melissa and Joel's and Heather and Russ'. This one belongs to Jen and Jessie. Jessie Fox is the big guy on campus; the talented athlete who has girls climbing like spider monkeys all over him. But he can't seem to shake two-Tess and Rachel. He sleeps with both (separately so far) and can't decide which one t

Hold me Now gives you a sneak into the 80's. Be prepared to sing these songs as they bring back memories of you 80's readers.

Jesse and Heather began their journey together. Again Addison out does herself in this amazing series. It's fun, it's frothy, full of spunk, yet gives you the drama back to back that teenagers deal with in high school. It pulls you back in time to a time that one is trying to find themselves.

Jesse is a player and is pulled by Heathers beauty. He wants something different

A fantastic read from Addison Moore! Makes me wish I wasn't born in the 80's but a teenager in the 80's! Reading this series even if each can be read as a stand alone has spun me into a world of bitching hair full of aquanet, leg warmers, jelly shoes, and omg the music. Jennifer in her words is a self-proclaimed nerd ( hey we can't all be awesome nerds sometimes it happens by birth) who loves books, music, her best friends and keeps a diary. Jessie is her totally a bad boy crush that plays sport ...more

This review is from my paperback copy! Well here's the last of Addison Moore's Totally 80's Romance and I'm so sad.....I loved this series so much, from the first to the last book. Ms. Moore aced the 80's descriptions of life and people for sure. This had to be my favorite out of all three books but don't think that the first two books weren't good, this one being the end of the series was just a little more awesome for me. Jennifer Barkley and Jesse Fox were great characters, they had the sexy, ...more

I loved how each book in this series tells their own story, but the characters still all stay intertwined.<3 It was Jennifer's time to shine . She always wanted to be Jessie's girl and her wish finally comes true! There are many obstacles they have to overcome. Like the horrible Tess and Rachel! Then there's Jilly who is Jen's champion from day one. That little girl has been dealt a crappy hand at life but Jen gives her love and hope. Tess and Rachel rear their ugly head to try and take Jessi ...more

This book was totally awesome!

The ending was great, albeit a little out of nowhere since I had no warning before I was thrust into imagining the characters' lives a decade or so forward. I'm kinda wishing I got a peek into Tess and Rachel's lives just for the banter that would have ensued.

Anyway, Jen's and Jessie's romance was super sweet. Or, maybe, it was bittersweet. I'm not sure, but it seemed just a tad unrealistic (this is the cynic in me overtaking) since first love doesn't always end i

Are you mild, or are you wild?

This book is totally rad! Ok, I don't think I ever used that in the 80's since I didn't really grow up in the US. But it totally is! This might be my favorite of the three books. I can't decide really if it's the first one, or this. But anyways, I really, really enjoyed this book!

Imagine your HS crush, the hottest guy in class, the one you obsess with. The one you buy clothes for in his favorite color. Yes, that guy! You have his 411, like everything about him, but

The perfect ending to this fabulous series! These books were so fun to read and I enjoyed each book just as much as the previous story. I loved the use of the alternating POV again and Addison does a fabulous job with the dialogue. Each couple in the series had a unique challenge to overcome, and I enjoyed each one's journey toward their happily ever after.

I adored finally getting Jesse and Jennifer's story since they are featured in the first two books. While each book can be read as a standal

Another great book in this series. Jessie finally notices Jennifer and is interested in trying out "mild" while she wants to try out "wild". Jennifer definitely made a few mistakes in this story and I was unsure what she was thinking some of the time. Her helping Jilly was nice and it allowed her and Jessie to get to know each other. I was disappointed with Heather and Mel and their inability to support Jennifer in her quest of a relationship with Jessie. Instead of asking her how she felt, they ...more

I'm so tired right now that my eyes are about to close so this will be a short review and I will say that I absolutely loved this series but heartbroken that it's over. Each book was like a different version of Pretty in Pink but the author really pulled it off. Definite must read!
Mar 15, 2016 Melissa rated it it was amazing
This is my favorite in the series... Fer sure!

Jen is so incredibly relatable and I was cheering for her the entire book. My only complaint is it had to end. I loved the Diary entries followed by the dual POV. The writing is phenomenal, and the relationships between the six main characters across the series is fantastic. Sometimes I wanted to smack the boys in head and have them communicate to their respective girlfriends their observations with Jessie and Jen.

This book made me want to Be Jessi

Jessie is a really lovable, funny guy, "Jessie holds up the unopened rubber a moment. “You ready to meet the Barbarian?” Out of this series this one is my favorite because of the code names they have for each other's goodies, “what? You’re not a freak.” He gives my shoulders a quick squeeze. I can feel his chest thumping with a rumble of a laugh. “No. I promise you the Barbarian is perfectly fine. In fact, he’s missing Genie already. He’s greedy that way.” I really liked this book.

Adorable story of good (mild) girl meets bad (wild) boy and find themselves in each other, but of course not with out a few little bumps in the way. Love that Mrs. Moore also wrapped up the series at the end and gave a future glimpse of all the couples from this series so that you don't leave the series with book hangover. Overall a cute, fun and easy read. Sometimes a girl just needs a little bit of a love story and happy ending to brighten her day.

I simply loved this book! It was the perfect conclusion to the Totally '80s Romance books. As the previous installments, the story of Jenny and Jessie has the sweet feel of youth and first love with just the right amount of drama. I enjoyed every minute of it, the fashion, the music and the trip down memory lane. If you have fond memories of the '80s, you should definitely read these books. They won't disappoint!

Probably my fave of the series

I like the straight and nerdy girl who wants the bad boy. Those tend to be my favorite! I liked the way the author chose to write this and the approach she took. I loved the epilogue and how it neatly wrapped up everything up. Overall a really great series and such fun reads.
