My thoughts on “A Future of Our Past,” as I loved the storyline. Two best friends who have kept their feelings from each other for the longest and their friends realized there was love tension between them both. Julia and Ryan have perfect chemistry and even I was rooting for them to get together. I wished just like Ryan that they would have found out sooner of each other. This book took me through ups and downs of emotions when reading it. I was happy one minute, mad the next, and crying at the very end. Oh boy…was I crying. This is an emotional roller coaster of a book, so be prepared to have tissues on hand. This book is also a very steamy read so if be prepared for some erotic scenes between Julia and Ryan. Some things that bothered me though were when Julie always came up with excuses in the beginning on why they shouldn’t be together and then the annoying crying after they did get together. Drove me bonkers every time Ryan and she got together, and she was in tears afterward. I know poor Ryan felt awful every time.
Another thing that bothered me is how Ryan seemed whiny and pushed toward Julia. Julia was doing fantastic in L.A., and he was kind of being selfish to have her closer. I could go on and on with how pushy Ryan was. He should have been focusing on his studies at Harvard. I did like the fact of how Ryan was very protective of Julia, even when they were just friends. That is a solid quality that grew on me about Ryan. “The Future of Our Past” was a delightful, steamy read. I recommend it to romance lovers out there and erotica readers. Like I stated above though, be prepared for an emotional roller coaster. The next book in the Remembrance trilogy, “Don’t Forget to Remember Me,” should be out soon. I will be reading it since I want to know what happens to Ryan and Julia.
When I'm not reading and reviewing, you can find me at my day job during the week and on the weekend taking care of our little farm.
