I've known her since the third grade.
I've loved her since our teen years.
But her heart belonged to my best friend.

Juliet Oliver was adopted at birth and has always struggled with this fact. She's been emotionally detached from everyone in her entire life, except for one person. He's been her one source of support, love and encouragement.

Seth Tyson has had his share of painful relationships. He's constantly battling with his own demons, led by issues at home.

I lost her.
I thought she was the love of my life.
She was everything I needed. Everything I wanted.
She made me forget about my past. My family.
She made me feel real.
How do I move on from her?
Will I find someone like her?
It's time to pick up the pieces.
But can I?
I'm Seth Tyson and this is my story.
I deserve a happily ever after, don't I?

What a beautiful, amazing story First before I start this review let me give you some advice. I highly and I mean highly recommend that you read both Dear Emily and Dear Tabitha before reading Dear Juliet. Yes, I know it technically can be read as a stand alone but in my opinion I believe you will not be able to truly appreciate the story without reading the previous books in the series. Trust me after you read Dear Juliet you will want to read them anyway so why not do it first? I will be the first to admit that I had no soft spot for Seth coming into Dear Juliet. For lack of a better word I hated him. He was slimy, creepy and let’s face it a bit of a douche. However, as unlikely as I thought it would be guess what! It happened! I take back every bad name I may or may not have called Seth in the past, and let me admit I was not kind. He now holds a piece of my heart as do every character in this beautiful series.  Watching Juliet and Seth’s journey from childhood friends transition into adulthood both broke my heart and made my heart soar at their victories. As with all of Trudy’s books prepare yourself for emotional whiplash. Your emotions will be all over the place. You will cry, smile, cry again and cry some more. Tissues are a definite must while reading Dear Juliet. Not to mention secrets and by secrets I mean your jaw will drop and you will be lost for words as your brain tries to catch up with what you learned and goes back to try to figure out where you missed the signs. Let me leave you with this before I close up this review. Trudy Stiles wrote a series where not one but all the characters involved will forever hold a special place in my heart. I so much enjoyed experiencing every heartbreak and triumph that these characters went through.

Bring Tissues and a Smile,  This was such an amazing book!! Be warned that this is not a stand alone book.  It really get everything out of this book you must read the first two book in the series, Dear Emily and Dear Tabitha.  This book does not disappoint.  It can be a hard read a time and there will be times that you want to grab the author and scream "what were you thinking" but there are also times when you want to wrap her in a huge hug and thank her for writing such amazing stories.   You will love the characters and you will hate them at different times in the book.  None of the characters in this book or this series are cookie cuter people. Trudy really makes you feel for all of them.  You will cry.  This is a fact.  If you don't cry then these books aren't meant for you.  They will leave you feeling emotional and raw at times depending on your background.  But over all you will walk away from this book just amazed and saying "This is an amazing book!"  Side Note: As an adopted child myself, Trudy really hits on a lot of questions that I have asked my self.  Feeling and thoughts that you can't escape.  They are just a part of who you are as an adopted child.  This one really hit home for me in so many ways that I was up for over an hour crying and reliving moments in my own life.

I was given an copy for an honest review for Through the Booking Glass. WOW!! What an amazing book & series!! I love books that make me feel & this book surely did that! My emotions were all over the place! Juliet & Seth become friends through a pen pal thing for school. They became immediate friends. They became each others safe place. Juliet is adopted & it's no secret. As she gets older, she becomes curious of the birth mom but her adoptive parents are trying to protect her heart! Seth hasn't had the easiest home life, but Juliet is his world! As they get older, we watch them get closer at times & farther apart at times! Tragedy strikes & they are left to hold each other up once again! My heart bled for these 2 characters!! They both go through a lot!! The end is epic! I did not see it coming but it was a perfect mesh of the other books to get this perfect conclusion to the Forever Family series! I can't wait for the spin off series!!

Dear Juliet is the emotionally charged third book in the Forever Family series by Trudy Stiles. I highly recommend you reading Dear Emily (Bk 1) and Dear Tabitha (Bk 2) first. It will give you a better understanding Seth Tyson's character. Dear Juliet begins with the beginning of Seth Tyson and Juliet Oliver, introduced to each other as pen pals in elementary school. Slowly over time they form a strong friendship as they endure all the ups and downs of adolescence. And some of the downs are pretty harrowing. Seth's family situation is pretty tumultuous and Juliet is dealing with insecurities that come with being an adopted child. Trudy leads you through their drama with such poignancy, you know she has really agonized right along with her characters. This series is my first foray into the whole adoption process. Trudy does a wonderful job of explaining what it's like to go this from all aspects: the adoptee, the adopting parents, and the birth parents. I really had no idea how emotional it is for families who finally have their families completed through adoption. Coupling this subject with a beautiful romance is truly original and I love that about Trudy's stories. I was a bit frustrated with Seth and Juliet's romantic relationship. I felt like I waited FOREVER for them to actually get together. I wanted to stop and shake them both, telling them to quit playing with my emotions and get together already! hahaha Dear Juliet was a wonderful conclusion to the Forever Family series. I'm a little sad it's over, but I'm looking forward to what other beautiful stories Trudy Stiles has in store for her fans. Written by Dee McGee

This installment of Forever Family was my favorite. I love the character of Seth from Dear Tabitha. He is just an amazing man. I was so happy that he was able to have Juliet in his life. Trust me when I say this book is really fantastic.
