Publisher's Summary

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 completed Something in the Way series, an epic saga of forbidden love.

Heartbreakingly good

Again I fall under the spell of Lake and Manning. Wanting them to finally be together but also understanding the reasons they cannot. I felt the love and heartbreak from Lake as she struggles to understand what it is that keeps Manning from her. You cannot move the stars but a live like they have is worth trying for. Manning g needs to put his thoughts of worthlessness and not being the right man for Lake aside. He needs to own up and accept his feelings. I believe Tiffany already knows his heart is not hers. Dying to know the rest of this story.

Once again the narration was amazing and I could listen to Andi and Zachary

HOLD ME

We pick up right where we left off, where everything is horrible and nothing is settled. From there, we spend the book with brows furrowed and noses sniffling.

The choices Manning is forced to make are completely selfless but incredibly heartbreaking and intense. The problem lies in that there was no real happiness the entire book. I do think that the reader deserves to be thrown a bone now and then for sticking through it, and that just hasn’t happened. I’m in this audio voyage 16 hours now and feel just depressed. Thank goodness I can finish the series and don’t have to wait.

That being said, the writing, the character development, the plot development... I’m freaking hooked. There is nothing I want more than to finish this series. I need this HEA. I need it. More than anything. So onto book 3 I go.

Sweet Torture!

Ahhhh why do I put myself through this sweet torture! I want to hate Manning and Lake so bad for doing this to themselves! But it's an addiction I can't quit! I can't wait until book 3! Hopefully I will get some kind of hope I've been clinging onto.
Love my Andi and Zachary!

if Loving you is wrong, I don't want to be right

I was initially hesitant to listening to this book because I'm not a fan of creepy Lolita type of books. Fortunately, there was so many 5 star reviews that helped me understand it really was not that type of book. There is no underage sex in this book. Yet, it. is a forbidden love story. This series is more of a coming of age and sisterly rivalry that goes too far.

In Book two, Lake and Manning have not have contact in four years due to Mannings marriage to Tiffany, Lake moving to New York and Manning's parole contraints. When Manning's legal problems are behind him....all bets are off and he goes to New York to check up on Lake. and for as much as his intentions start out almost brotherly, well old feeling for Lake resurface.

The first book was more like a drama, but this book explodes with love and forbidden sexual desire that makes Lake and Manning forget any moral responsibility towards others. This author's gifted writing, sucked me in with her beautiful words and intense scenes that made it extremely difficult for me stop the audio. I blew through all three books in two days. These books are emotional and intense that make it difficult to forget Lake, Manning and all the characters involved with this tearful story.

Additionally, this audio book has two of the best narrators in the industry. 5 star story and nnarrator's. All three books are worth the purchase.

Loved & Hated this book-A must read series

Just like book one, I had a hard time putting it down. At times, I was so angry and heartbroken by what Lake was having to go through. I understood and could feel her pain. I cried with her through most of this story remembering those same feelings for myself.

Watching these characters grow up was surreal and painful at times. Knowing what it was like to give up on something that you truly felt was your world. Jessica Hawkins is a wonderful story teller bringing out the Passion and emotions that people can relate to. Many times in this book I wanted to turn it off throw it and walk away all at the same time of wanting to finish their story. The emotional rollercoaster at times was hard to bare.

In book 2, Lake and Manning continue to struggle with what is right and wrong and make choices that can hurt the other. Again I could not wait to start book 3 and had to go back and write this review.

What a disappointing ending for two lovers.

I went through Book 1 and Book 2 to end up crying my heart out after struggling through all the barriers these lovers endured. Nothing could be more disappointing than hoping for a beautiful ending and resulting in heartbreak.

It also peeves me to think that a parent can be so demanding and underhanded as to put such demands on his children's future the way he wants. I wanted to see him defeated of his arrogance and power over his family

I hope book 3 will resolve the separation of Manning and Lake, and that they may get back together and have a happy ending. I am left frustrated!

Beautiful!

Love, romance, heartbreak, angst, this book has it all! It will make you shout out loud to the characters, and cause a feeling of emptiness in your heart when it ends! Jessica Hawkins, your writing is amazing and as all your series do, this book leaves the listener yearning for the next book!

I feel CHEATED!!

This is the 2 book in a 4 book series.I knew that going in but what I didn't know was the last 2 books
Are not on Audible .The last 2 are only available in books. I listen to audio books because my eye sight is not as good as it use to be also with audio I can listen at work.
I really enjoyed this book and the first one .The author did an amazing job pulling you into the
World she created.It was so easy to embrace these people with the wonderful narration .Another reason for choosing an audio because the book is given voice and brought to life.
These are the first books I have tried by this author I love her style but I will not get any more
Unless I know all the books in the series are available on audio. I feel really cheated it is like watching a movie and it ends right in the middle and you never get to see the end.
The author and Audible did a rotten thing !!!!!!!

Lake

Lake gets on my nerves. I know its just a book but in what world does this girl live in. I feel like screaming my lungs out to her and slapping her for being so damn stupid.

This series definitely killed me!

Some books/series just stick with you. Something in the Way by Jessica Hawkins, Narrated by: Zachary Webber, Andi Arndt, is one of those series for me. I am writing this review for the whole series and posting for each book, of which there are 4.

I read it in December of 2018, glued to it from start to finish, and it is still with me. This series has remained at the edges of everything new that I read. It reminded me of young love and what it was like to pine for someone who is not yours (for a number of reasons). How you can grow up, grow apart, and still have that tether between you with the not-so-gentle pull. You know that you love them and you know they are meant for you, but it just never lines up.

If you are anything like me this story will eat you alive and then rebuild your faith in humanity and the human spirit. The main characters are strong, but not flawless. Mistakes are made with devastating consequences. I'm still angsty over this one, but I'm also still in love with it. I definitely recommend the series!

Two of my favorite narrators completely sealed the deal for this to be at the top of my #faveylist.

I didn’t want it to end.

Lately I have been choosing book to listen to narrated by Zachary Webber. Well he did not disappoint. I couldn’t stop listening. Wow what a great story. I felt like I could actually feel all the emotions the characters were feeling. Jessica Hawkins, truly wonderful writer. I look forward to listening to or reading more books by her. Well moving on to book 3 in the series and I so can’t wait.
