Series: Something in the Way #2
Book Two in the Something in the Way series, an epic, 3-book saga of forbidden love…
Oh, my freaking goodness. This book, this series, is like crack, y’all. I sped through both the first book and this piece of beautiful in two days. Seriously. Two days, because, once I started reading, I just could not stop.
Author Jessica Hawkins has absolutely mastered the art of deliciously forbidden and heartbreakingly angsty reads, and, just as with SOMETHING IN THE WAY, I loved every single page of this second book in the trilogy. Lake, Manning, and even Tiffany, owned my heart here, and I could not put the books down because I needed, yes, needed to see where things would end up.
Falling in love with Lake and Manning and their star-crossed story, staying the course through this emotionally charged book, made for some of the best reading I’ve done to date this year. “Edge of your seat” is putting things mildly, because there were so many moments that were truly heart-stopping, right up until the very end. And, okay, I knew that the cliffhanger was coming, but, how I’m supposed to wait until October to find out the final piece of the story is beyond me. I am not good at waiting, and these books are so good!
SOMEBODY ELSE’S SKY is what I call a ‘big’ read, because it’s one that consumed me, one that I will keep thinking about until I can get my hands on MOVE THE STARS. 6+ intense, heartbreaking, beautiful, selfless stars for this one. I cannot recommend the books in this series highly enough. You’d be doing yourself a favor to add these to your TBR, but, hang on, because you’re in for quite the ride.
Jessica Hawkins grew up between the purple mountains and under the endless sun of Palm Springs, California. She studied international business at Arizona State University and has also lived in Costa Rica and New York City. To her, the most intriguing fiction is forbidden, and that’s what you’ll find in her stories. Currently, she resides wherever her head lands, which is often the unexpected (but warm) keyboard of her trusty MacBook.
