Summary: The summary had a bit of spoilers to those who have not read the second book or even the first one. You can highlight below to read it! The review does not contain spoilers.

After their long summer apart, Ally and Jake were hoping for a drama free senior year. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like things will work out that way...again.

It turns out that Chloe is pregnant and says that Jake is the father. Hammond is pissed at his best friend, but mostly can't believe that Ally would stay with Jake. But Ally is tired of being apart from Jake and is willing to make it work. But that is easier said than done when Jake starts blowing Ally off to go to doctor's appointments with Chloe and Ally joins the school play and meets a new cute guy.But as graduation approaches, things get more complicated as new secrets come out and Ally realizes maybe Jake isn't the guy she thought he was. After everything they've been through can Ally and Jake get out of Orchard Hill with their relationship in tact? 

Review: This is So Not Happening is the end to one of my favorite series. This one, like the previous two, was filled was drama. I'm not a huge drama fan but this drama is done 100 percent right. 

My love for Ally grows and grows through every single book, and this one was no different. Ally's a very strong heroine and she never fails to be strong. She makes mistakes, like all people, but she's a real, relatable character. I suppose that's what makes her such a strong character and why I admire her so much. I'll miss all the other characters but I think I'll miss Ally's stubbornness and determination the most. .

But then I'm a huge fan of Jake, Ally's boyfriend. He is literally one of the most flawed love interests. He makes countless mistakes and says the wrong thing over and over again. You'd think I'd be sick of him. Truthfully, he can be a complete tool sometimes. Jake can also be one of the most caring and considerate people. I think that's what I like so much about Jake-he can be stupid sometimes but you're always rooting for him because you know that he deserves one more chance. And I don't mind saying that he's completely swoon, drool worthy or whatever. He's kind of hot.

I wasn't exactly sure where the plot was going to go in this one. I was expecting a shocking conclusion to the series but I was almost glad to see that it wasn't a huge conclusion. It was sweet, and it fit the feel of this book perfectly. 

I'm sad to see this fantastic series come to a close but it was a great one with This is So Not Happening. If you want to love and care about characters then I strongly suggest you pick this one up. The romance, the writing and I have to admit it, the drama, is what makes this a series that I wish would never end.

It's got to be hard to write a blurb for the last book in a series. There have got to be some spoilers--nice of you to white those out, though. Ally sounds like a fabulous character. Thinking I might have to check out this series!

So glad to see you enjoyed this! I can't wait for my copy to arrive so I can dig in. I am totally not a fan of drama myself, but you're right, it's very well done in this series. (And highly addictive as well!) Thanks for sharing your review, I'm even more excited now!
