Description

"This is the best slow-burn romance I have ever read.”—New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward

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, a completed USA TODAY bestselling love saga and a top 3 iBooks Romance bestseller.

    This book. How am I going to review this book? For a start I need to be able to give it more than 5 stars. It was extraordinary. 24 hours after finishing, my heart still hurts and the words are regularly floating back through my mind. This is a love story - definitely not your average love story, but a beautiful love story nonetheless. Two people who are deeply in love trying to find their way. I’d wanted to fall to my knees and pay homage. To overwhelm myself in her. Soak my senses with her. Touch her body, smell her neck, taste her mouth, hear her moan, feel her relief that I was home. Jessica Hawkins has a way of drawing you into a story so completely that you feel like you are really there - in the scene, with the characters. Her dialogue and scene descriptions are so exquisite there were times I felt like I was Lake and the emotions she was describing were mine. The emotions in this book are epic. Have your tissues handy. Lake grew as a character in this book. She's still beautifully innocent but I felt she was also starting to find herself in this story and I loved seeing her discover new sides to herself and look forward to seeing who she is in book 3. I sealed my words inside along with a great love that somehow fit inside me. I loved the chapters from Manning's point of view as I felt it gave us a better insight into why he made certain decisions and my heart broke as his story unfolded. His childhood history, his reactions in prison and his self hatred all built to give us a full picture of who Manning really is. There were times I wanted to hug him and also times I wanted to shake him in this book. “You should have the world. F@#$ the world—you should have the universe, the sky, and every star in it.” Tiffany was not a popular character in book one and won't be in this story either. I did feel we got more insight into why she behaves the way she does and she showed some growth. But I gotta say I am still definitely not a fan. I worried my sister actually thought she loved Manning. Sometimes I caught her watching him the same way I did . . . with stars in her eyes. I don't want to give away the story so I won't say anything else. I will tell you to make sure you are prepared with tissues, wine and chocolate. You are going to need them. This story packs a punch straight to the heart. You have been warned. Bring on book 3 and the culmination of this epic story. I for one cannot wait. I reviewed an ARC of this book.
