The Future of Our Past, (The Remembrance Trilogy, #1)
Julia Abbot and Ryan Matthews had been inseparable best friends since the moment they met. Each of them fight an internal battle, unwilling to risk their incredible friendship, but unable to quell their deep longing for the other. On the verge of Ryan’s departure to Harvard Medical School and Julia’s for a new job on the opposite coast, they are forced to face the undeniable truth of their deeper feelings and find themselves enthralled in a passion like neither has ever known.

The lovers are faced with forced separation, great distances and other people who try to sabotage their relationship as both of them work to build the shared future they both dream of. When their lives begin to finally gel, Julia is offered an opportunity that will jettison her career to new heights. In light the sacrifices she has made for him, Ryan can hardly deny her, but then something happens to completely change the course of their future. Will Julia choose the chance of a lifetime or the love of her life?
Overall Thoughts:
This was such an easy book to read and get into! It's emotional and ardent yet light and delicate!

The Future of Our Past is about two best friends named Julia Abbot and Ryan Matthews. Ryan has worked extremely hard for four years at Stanford University just so he could be accepted into Harvard Medical School in Boston when he graduates. Unsurprisingly, he gets in. When he's gifted with his acceptance letter in the mail one day, he should be ecstatic but he's not because the only thing he can think about is the fact that he'll have to leave Julia behind.

Julia has decided to move to Los Angeles to try to pursue a career in publishing and editing, but she too is devastated that she has to leave behind her best friend. The two wonder why they have to say goodbye to each other right when their love is at the highest..

What I liked about this book:
Like I said, I got into it at the very beginning and stayed interested until the very last page. The romance was very sweet and adorable at times, then turned dramatic and emotional at other times. But what I especially liked was Ryan. He was so charismatic and I instantly liked him! He was described as extremely attractive and that he kind of ran through woman, but he was so sure in his love for Julia!

What I disliked about this book:
There was some erotica in it, which I didn't mind at all, but just so you know.

This was a very beautiful story that will sweep you off your feet until the very last sentence!
