It's been two years since Conrad told Belly to go with Jeremiah. She and Jeremiah have been inseparable ever since, even attending the same college-- only, their relationship hasn't exactly been the happily ever after Belly had hoped it would be. And when Jeremiah makes the worst mistake a boy can make, Belly is forced to question what she thought was true love. Does she really have a future with Jeremiah? Has she ever gotten over Conrad? It's time for Belly to decide, once and for all, who has her heart forever.

*Sigh* the last book in the trilogy, I can’t believe it’s over! This trilogy had me crying, laughing, and actually feeling for the characters in the book. If someone were to ask me what my favorite series is I’d say this one for sure. I absolutely fell in love with all the characters, not only have I devoured each one of these books in one sitting, I have lost sleep over these books.

We’ll always have summer started off with Belly and Jeremiah dating, they’ve been dating for awhile, for two years, ever since Conrad told Jeremiah to date Belly. Belly finds out a secret that Jere has been keeping and they have a huge fight. Since they were destined to be together, since her and Jeremiah, Conrad and Steven (Belly’s sister) have hung out since birth practically it was only right for Jeremiah to ask Belly to marry him. They were in love after all.

I was actually really very disappointed in myself, for I have this annoying habit that inhabits me to read the last page or two of a book before I start reading. My conscious told me not to peek at the ending. So I only skimmed over the last sentence, and wouldn’t you know it, the spoiler was the last sentence. So even though I knew what the outcome was I still was on edge while reading it.

Not only did I want to slap at Jeremiah for being such a jerk at times but I also wanted to slap Conrad for not manning up and saying how he really felt to Belly. I don’t want to say anymore because I don’t want to spoil it for everyone. But let me just say that you will not read this trilogy with a dry eye.

Although even before I read the spoiler at the end. I kind of had a feeling that the book was going to end like it did. I just wish this wouldn’t be the last book. In fact I demand another book! Although it wouldn’t have the emotional love triangle I would still love any book that had Belly and Conrad in it. I fell in love with Conrad with Belly.

I can’t help but compare Conrad to Jace from the mortal instruments. In a way there both very similar, Although Conrad doesn’t have that charming witty sarcastic personality like Jace does. But anyways I have ranted enough.

I just wanted to say that everyone who doesn’t like this series has no heart. Just kidding, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But I do recommend this to everyone. Even if some people think these books are just a tad bit cheesy :D

5/5 stars

I have been looking forward to this book since FOREVER!!! It sounds like Belly has more heartwrenching decisions to make, and Conrad... the things humans do for the ones they love without realizing that telling their true feelings would make the world so much better. It's hard to believe the series ends here. I wish it'd go on forever (though that would get tiring if it was really put into words!).

Thanks for the review!


P.S. There is such thing as cheesy for a reason. We LOVE these kinds of books, so these books keep on getting produced. The difference is in the telling ;)

Truly great book! Jenny Han needs to write another one! I would have rather Belly pick Jere instead of Conrad though. Team Jere! Belly did belong with Conrad though. Great ending!
