My life consists of lying to my parents and sneaking out of the penthouse. My CEO millionaire father seems to think that at the tender age of sixteen, I’m too young to date boys.

“The first true love any girl has, is her father.
No one will ever replace him as the love of her life.”
~ Unknown

I can't even explain all the feels I have for this novella. It made me tear up and laugh at the same time. Witnessing once more the life of the Black family through Julia's eyes made me miss them. The fact that their family couldn't be closer enough made my heart feel full of love.

The other thing I love about this novella is the father-daughter relationship of Connor and Julia. Tru

Being Julia ...loved it♥♥!!
I really enjoyed hearing her story. And the things she went through growing up. Lets just say she IS the best of her mom and dad..LOL. And we cant forget about Connor. ...I didn't think I could love him anymore.....but Connor as a daddy...he stole my heart. The love he has for his little "Princess" is very touching. I was sad to see the story end. This was my FAVORITE book of the series .

Awesome job Sandi :)

I LOVED IT!!!!!!

I am not even sure where to start with this review. I LOVE Sandi Lynn, I will not deny it. I have loved her since Forever Black first came out. I fell in love with Connor and Ellery and through every single book that Sandi has written I have felt that I have been a part of their lives since the very beginning. To get through this series and be at a point where NOW I am reading a book about their daughter is truly amazing.

I loved this book. Connor Black and Ellery live on in another way. Thru their daughter Julia and Jake.
I loved this story the continuing of the Black Family. Julia is the apple of her fathers eye and she seems hell bent to test him in every part of her life. Julia learns that life with her parents is a little strange with their open loving relationship. They dont care who is around with their loving and playfulness and it embarassed the heck out of Julia til she met Jake and finally seen why her

Sandi did it again, she had me! All the words flew by and not but a few hours later I was finished with the book :( I love Julia, she's the sweetest, just like her Mom. She's stubborn and goes for what she wants and loves. At the beginning, yep typical teenager, but this just shows, be patient and the one you belong to and with, forever will come to you. I did have tears during a specific chapter, I never saw it coming. Don't be careless with your life, you see what happens! Connor just as great ...more

The Black Family is always getting water works from me! I cried a lot of times because there are no words to describe how utterly perfect this family is.

I really didn't know there was a novella in this series. I'm so grateful to Sandi Lynn for writing another story for this wonderful family! After everything that Connor & Ellery went through.. It feels like a lifetime!

I'm in awe for how incredible a father and a husband Connor Black is. I can never think of anyone more perfect than Connor. He

I have loved all the books that Sandi has written. The Forever Black series has been amazing! You will love Connor Black :)

Here in this book is his daughter Julia. She is so much like Connor and Ellery its too cute. I love her relationship with them. She made a stupid (real stupid) mistake when she was 16, but she learned from it. At her HS graduation party she meets Jake Jensen <3 From there their relationship grows. The rest of the book was just amazing! It was great seeing our other favorite

Loved Julia's story! We were given a glimpse of a grown up Julia in the Epilogue of Forever Us, in which I loved. So, it was great to go back and read about her teenage years until adulthood. I adored Connor and Ellery Black in the Forever trilogy and even more so in this book. The love they have for their kids, especially the love Connor had for his 'Princess', was heartwarming and well told!

A definite must read for those fans of the Forever series

I absolutely loved loved this one. It was a quick read a look inside a millionaire kids lives.. seeing things through their eyes. Both Julia and Collin were awesome kids but how could they not be with Connor and Ellie ans parents. I loved how close they were with their parents. They had the type if relationship that one wishes for. just loved it.

I love everything Connor Black!! What a wonderful story of Julia finding the love of her life!! It was great to see the love and sex between Elle and Connor was still sizzling!!!!

I want Colin' s story now!!! This was about Julia but I really want to read about Connor and Colin' s bond!!!!!!!
I love the Black family and I loved that we got to see how Julia and Collin grow up. It was also great to see how Connor and Ellery turned out as parents. If you love this series, you definitely need to read this novella, to see what happens to the Black's when their kids grow up :) ...more

really enjoyed reading about Julia growing up, but what I truly enjoyed was the beautiful relationship that Connor and Ellery had as they were getting older. Sandi Lynn's books are the best. ...more

This was a wonderful addition to the series, it was great reading about Julia's teenager years. I like how Sandi let us read about some experiences that has happened to many of us, not everything was pretty and perfect. Some parts in this book was heartbreaking and I could not stop crying at Julia's loss when she was so young. I loved how Sandi still let us read how happy and in love Connor and Ellery are, it was great how they didn't change all of these years and how they would show their want ...more

AlsoI love about this novella is the father-daughter relationship of Connor and Julia. Truly nothing compares to a father's love for his own daughter. Although Julia did have moments that he hated her father, it was actually normal. Which teenager didn't argue with his/her parents right?

Being Julia

5 stars. OMG I loved it. Julia and Jake were so adorable and I instantly fell in love with them and was so wrapped up in their story. And I loved the parts with Connor and Ellery, it was nice to see that they were still so much in love, even more. if you haven't read the Forever books you have to read those first so you can fully enjoy and love Being Julia. This is a must have so buy it you won't be disappointed. Thank you to Sandi for a beautiful addition to the Forever trilogy, now

Get to know Julia in "Being Julia"! I think this book tells about Julia's relationship with her dad, Connor. I like how the story goes. Julia's a little bit of spoiled brat though. She wants what she wants. She gets mad if she didn't get it. I wish there are more interaction with her brother, Collin but all in all it was a great novella. ...more

Not even fictional characters should have such a perfect life!

Wow! Julia's entire life is presented on a silver platter! Not too much goes wrong for her. Sure I know there was something that happened in the beginning but fen high Ms. Lynn told us she was sad and upset she didn't show us. Pretty boring and predictable! And for the record I loved the Forever Black series.

I have to say that I love Ellery and Connor Black these two have kept me intrigued since I first met them in Forever trilogy. The writing style leaves a little to appreciate but the characters are amazing

As always, Sandi delivers. Beautifully written. Definitely worth a read.
