If I closed my eyes, I could still see them—all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake’s gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany’s tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly.

A better man would’ve walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I’d keep enough distance. If I’d learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.

Lake was everything I wanted, and nothing I could ever have. I was nobody before I knew her and a criminal after. The way to love her was to let her shine—even if it would be for somebody else.

Book two in the Something in the Way series.

This woman AMAZES me with every single word she writes. I’m BLOWN AWAY constantly by the brilliance that shines through with each turn of the page. This book has BROKEN ME in the best possible way, and all I can do is put my trust in this incredibly talented author and believe that she and her characters will make me whole again.

“You wasted your time.”

“Maybe I did, but time never feels wasted on you.”

Oh, the sweet torture that Jessica Hawkins put us through with this installment…I’m not sure I’ve ever felt this way with any other ongoing series. I just know that from book one, I was completely and utterly lost in these character’s world. I’m invested 150% and I know that there is no going back. If you haven’t already you’ve probably seen all over social media, the outcries and frustrations with this series and these characters. Do yourself a favor and don’t be scared away by this. You shouldn’t be surprised that this book and this series is something that will pull out a myriad of emotions from you. You will cry. You will scream. You will sigh, and you will cry and cry again, but that means that the author did something right. Who wants to read a book where no emotions are provoked? Not me, that’s for sure. I want to feel what the characters are feeling. I want to experience the emotions that the author experience while writing this masterpiece. I want to feel their pain, experience their happiness, and be overwhelmed with their struggles. 

“You can’t move the stars. I had tried, and I had failed.”

Jessica Hawkins did something right when she created these characters. She made her readers feel something that they’ve never felt before. I know this is her baby and I’m so incredibly grateful that she is sharing it with the world. I might bitch and moan about how this book is TORTURE, but in this scenario, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. This time around, I WANT the torture. I WANT the unknown. I WANT my mind to be blown by the ending. Everyone has their theories about what is going to happen between Manning, Lake, and Tiffany, but I can guarantee that Ms. Hawkins will NEVER take the easy way out when it comes to these characters. We might get the ending that we all want, or we might not. In this case, it will definitely be the EPIC JOURNEY that matters the most. If you haven’t experiences the AWESOMENESS that is Jessica Hawkins’ writing, you are missing out BIG TIME! Do yourself a favor and pick up ANYTHING by this author and you will instantly fall HARD for her brilliance!
