Description

“One of the best books of 2017.”—USA Todays Happy Ever After

Book three in the completed USA TODAY bestselling Something in the Way series and a top three iBooks bestseller.

Lake
It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents' house. If I’d known then what I do now, would I have kept on walking? Manning was older, darker, experienced—and I’d trusted him when he said the story would only ever be about us. I’d held those words close and challenged fate, but I had lost.
 
A part of me is still that sixteen-year-old girl squinting up at Manning, but no matter how far I fall or high I soar, I’ll always be a bird without her bear and nothing without him.
 
Manning
When I close my eyes, I can no longer see her. The decisions I made were to push Lake in the right direction—away from me. But now that she’s gone, would I have made those same choices?
 
I’d walked away like I was supposed to. I’d kept my distance. I’d bent over backward to keep Lake pure, but she’s no longer that girl, and I don’t know if I can stay away anymore. I only know I don’t want to. She’s still everything I want and nothing I should ever have, but if anyone can move the stars, it’s her great bear in the sky.

    It's over. Too much angst. It just went on and on and on. No epilogue. Very disappointing.
  • Perfect ending to this series ❤️❤️

    Not sure how or where to start this review. I knew this book was going to rock my world but I didn't realise just how much. It was the perfect and only way this story could end, but I have to say, there were times I almost couldn't cope. Jessica's writing almost broke me today. She is crazy talented and solidified as a Forever Author for me. This book gave me ALL THE FEELS: I cried so hard at points I had to stop reading to get my breathing back under control as I thought I would be sick I threw my IPad on the floor and stormed out of the room I PMd a friend who had read it over 30 times as I had to vent I highlighted over 70 quotes I completely neglected my family and my hubby took one look at my face and knew not to speak to me until I was done. Jessica Hawkins has a way of drawing you into a story so completely, that you feel like you are actually there - feeling the pains and the joys of the characters. In Move the Stars she does this to perfection. Beautiful Painful Perfection. A lot has changed since we left Lake in Somebody Else's Sky. She has grown up and is pursuing her dreams, on her terms. In fact I think she changed the most throughout this journey and was the strongest of all the characters. Manning. Oh Manning. He is a hero like no other I have read. I adore, and at times in this book, detested him in equal measure. This story really tested my feelings for him but ultimately I loved him. All his flaws, bad decisions and heartbreaks. By the end of this story I felt like I truly understood him and just wanted him to be happy. However that was. There are plot twists in this story that had me gasping out loud. Screaming at Jessica in my head and questioning everything I thought I felt about this series. It's definitely not your average love story, it's more, so much more. It's a love story that I know will float through my mind for years to come. A love story that deserves to be read. A love story that it might hurt to read at times, but all the real love stories do. I think so anyway. Have your tissues handy. You will need them.
