** MAJOR SPOILERS of `We'll Always Have Summer' **

Belly made her choice, and she chose Jeremiah. Conrad didn't want her, may never have loved her, despite her ages-old devotion to him. But Jeremiah - he was always there, and Belly finally realized that. They have been together for two years now. Two perfect years of contentment and love, spent at the same university and heading in the same, permanent, direction.

But when that love is tested by a hurtful mistake, Jeremiah takes drastic measures to keep Belly. A proposal on the back of an apology, and suddenly Belly finds herself growing up faster than she may be ready . . .

`We'll Always Have Summer' is the final book in Jenny Han's wonderful `Summer' trilogy.

I wanted this finale to go out on an explosive BANG - instead I got lukewarm and slight disgruntlement with this, the final instalment to a wonderful contemporary romance series . . .

The book kicks off with a betrayal. Jeremiah does something not unusual, but still heartbreaking and disappointing. What follows is an appalling marriage proposal (on the back of an apology over a meaningless and regrettable one-night-stand). And Belly accepts. At the tender age of eighteen, Belly decides to marry Jeremiah start a life with him. But her mother's adamant disappointment in the whole affair is a tragedy, and Belly escape to Susannah's summer house to finish planning her wedding (with just two months preparation before the big day!). But when she arrives at the summer house, she discovers a live-in resident in the form of Conrad, home from California and his premed studies.

I've read both of the first two books in this series and after the first half of this one, I couldn't take it anymore. I just couldn't! Nothing was happening and I knew what was going to happen, so I just skimmed. I read what I thought was important and then sped read the other parts. I don't think I missed much.

***There's going to be slight SPOILERS from here on out so please read with caution***

There's a couple of reasons why I stopped reading:

1. Belly - She's still this immature kid!! She's going to be 19 now and I just can't believe how childish she still is. I've read reviews by other readers who says she's grown quite a bit in this series, but I just did not see it. I don't know what I'm missing. She has this huge fight with Jeremiah about not going to Cabo just to have him say she could come if she wanted to and then she's like no I can't be THAT type of girl friend. And when he tells her another girl was going that's one of his friends' gf's, she gets upset! And don't even get me started on how she handled the fact that Jeremiah cheated on her. Oh you cheated on me while we were on a break, ok I guess I'll marry you! Then from then on the whole book was about planning this wedding she wasn't going to have which was just boring! An almost 19 year old planning a wedding that no one supports with money from her fiance's rich dad...it just pissed me off. Oh and I forgot to mention that Belly's now in college and the only explanation Han gave to the reader about why she went to the college she went to was because Jeremiah went there. Ugh! This book got me so angry.

2. Jeremiah - He is totally out of character here. I don't get why he was turned into this frat house rich jerk head that's ok with living off of his dad!

Ahh. It's spring finally and though this is the perfect beach read, love is in the air. If you've read the other two books in the Summer series by Jenny Han, you'll appreciate that we finally get closure in the final book in the series. Belly, now in college and known as Isabel, has been dating Jeremiah for two years and though the course has not always been smooth, it's been pretty good and they are in love. So when they decide to get married they can't understand why everyone is so against it. Didn't everyone expect her to marry one of the Fisher boys and everyone knows you can't count on Conrad. The obvious choice is Jeremiah. Isn't it?

Okay, you know that much from the book jacket so no spoilers there. This book explores Belly's and Jeremiah's relationship and a few bumps they face in it leading up to the big question. Then all the problems that question causes. Jenny Han writes that part of the book-the headlong rush into marriage just like that. There is a flurry of planning and questions and troubles and the book rushes too so that you can feel the underlying panic, maybe, that both Belly and Jeremiah feel to get it over and done with. Belly wants to prove that she loves Jeremiah. And maybe Jeremiah wants her to say "I do" before his brother can enter their lives again. For some reason there is a sense of urgency and as a reader, I felt it too, rushing through the book as I read. Yes, Belly loved Con, when she was younger. He was her first love, but hey we all remember our first loves. Some of us fondly, some not so fondly. But, they have a part of our hearts because they were the first to break them. This was true with Con. He hurt Belly and she ran off to Jeremiah. The question is did she choose him, one of the two she loved or was he the one she loved?
