Summary: 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.
***This review may contain spoilers for the first two books in the Summer series***
If you've read my reviews of the first two books in the Summer series then you know I had a problem with Conrad and Belly, but they finally were the characters I wanted to see in this book. I guess it's because they're older and more mature, but Belly didn't bother me at all in this book, which is a big improvement seeing as how I couldn't stand her before. She was much more responsible in this book.
I loved loved loved that Conrad got some chapters to narrate in this book as well. I finally let me see inside that guys head and see why he was such a jerk to Belly in the first two books. Again, my other reviews show that he's a jerk who I didn't like because he was a jerk to Belly, but Conrad won my heart in this book. I got to see all of his reasons for what he did and finally saw that he wasn't the wonderful guy (emotion wise) that I thought he was.
I did notice that I had a problem with Jeremiah, who I previously didn't have a problem with. He just came off as a big jerk most of the time.
Now in my review of It's Not Summer Without You I said that I couldn't see Belly being with Jeremiah because he seemed more like a friend/sibling or with Conrad because he was a jerk who supposedly didn't love her, but I loved the ending of We'll Always Have Summer and think that she definitely ended up with who she was supposed to.
One thing I noticed was that this book didn't seem as beach-y or summer fun-ish like the others, but that's probably because of the wedding and newfound maturity of our characters.
Overall I definitely think We'll Always Have Summer was the best in the Summer series. It wrapped everything up nicely and had a happy ending for everyone.
