Goodreads Synopsis
The breath-taking finale in the Mila and Blake trilogy... Join Mila and Blake in the heat-charged summer before life changes for good.

Mila's back in Nashville, two years since the fallout with Blake and on a mission to put the past behind her before heading to college. Goodbye family drama, Hollywood crises... and Blake.

Enter reality - Blake is home too, with his troubled father and a brand-new girlfriend in tow. Luckily Mila's family ranch serves as a distraction, but even there, tensions are sparked when she and her best girlfriends meet a hot new stablehand.

In true Mila fashion, it's impossible to forget what happened between her and Blake, and buried feelings erupt to the surface. Has enough time passed that they can try one last time, or has it been too long since they were on the same path? Will this be the making of Mila and Blake... or their undoing?

Return to sun-soaked Tennessee for one last summer of romance in the MILA trilogy.

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher. This in no way impacted on my view.

Following the events of two years ago, Mila has struggled with her feelings over Blake, and returning to Tennessee for the summer before college, she knows she'll have to face him. But it's harder than she expected, and being in Nashville, with her friends, her family, and around Blake, has brought back all of her memories, and she's second guessing her decision to go to a Californian college. Will this summer be the making of Mila, and her relationship with Blake?

When I finished Trusting Blake, I almost screamed knowing I would have to wait for the finale - and to find out what happened next. So to be asked to take part in the blog tour was a dream come true, and I immediately had to dive in and see whether our favourite couple could have a happy ending after all. Mila has matured so much in the last two years, and now that she's ready to head off to college, she all set for a summer in Nashville to relax. But being in the city she loves, with the people she cares about - especially when her grandfather is starting to fade - she wonders whether her decision to decline her place at Belmont was the right one. However, the idea of being around Blake was so difficult, but once she got over the initial first meeting, it's clear that though her feelings haven't gone, she has to move on, as he clearly has with his new girlfriend. There's a hint of a love triangle at parts, but really, it's obvious to everyone that Mila and Blake are meant to be, and what was attraction and a crush at the beginning, is full blown love, and nothing will come between them. I really felt that this book cemented everything we've seen in the previous books, and was the perfect ending to an amazing series. All of the characters had arcs which were right for them, and my only disappointment was no epilogue to see what happens next. Maybe (hopefully!) we'll get a novella or spin off which looks at Savannah and Tori, and we'll see how Mila and Blake are doing? Estelle has knocked it out of the park yet again!
