Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

This is book 3 in the ‘Summer’ series, and kicks off a couple of years after the end of book 2 ‘It’s Not Summer Without You’.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 & 2.**
Isabel and Jeremiah have been together for nearly two years when she finds out that he cheated on her with another girl, but she’s possibly more shocked when Jeremiah tries to make it up to her by asking her to marry him.
With their parent’s dead-set against the imminent wedding that Jeremiah and Isabel are planning, Isabel isn’t sure if she can go through with the wedding if her mother doesn’t attend, and Conrad can’t keep his feelings to himself any longer.
Who will Isabel end up with? Should she be marrying Jeremiah? And what would Susanna say about all of this?
This was a really, really good YA contemporary, and a great end to the series.
Isabel/Belly was once again more grown up in this book, and I liked that, even if she was still hanging on to her innocence for as long as possible!
The storyline in this one was once again an emotional one, and it was one hell of a rollercoaster ride as Isabel had to deal with Jeremiah’s betrayal, and her conflicting emotions over both Jeremiah and Conrad. This was once again one of those books that you really don’t want to put down, and the emotions were so real. I totally agonised over this book and loved every minute of it!
The ending to this was really good, even after the heart-break of the rest of the book, and was a really good end to the story, I really could not stop crying!
Overall; a really, really good contemporary YA, with an emotional storyline.
9 out of 10.
