Publisher's Summary

The final book in the Something in the Way series, and a USA Today best seller.

Manning and I have what happily ever after is made of....

A home he built us on the unshakable foundation we fought for.

A life of laughter carved out of heartache and betrayal.

A love story to stand the test of time.

But between a trust that can’t be broken, joy that can’t be bridled, and passion that would scorch the sun, the empty spaces are becoming more and more difficult to ignore....

Fears that keep Manning up at night as he slips from our bed.

Our complicated relationship with a man he respects, and one I don't know how to forgive.

And a sprawling, beautiful home with one small room I'm afraid I'll never be able to fill.

Manning and I have what happily ever after is made of....

But I'll beg the heavens for just one thing more.

Loved the series.

Beautifully written by Jessica Hawkins. Character depth and plot was fantastic. I have only written a few reviews. But for this series I had to. Narrators are beyond words and together they make the story come alive. I felt as if I was watching a movie while I was driving to work.

Something missing

I loved the series, I just wish the final book had Manning’s voice and point of view as well. I felt like that was really missing, and took away from some of the emotion .

5 stars: The books / series impressed on me and i will recommend and reread this title.
I tell others about the story and or book(s) in regular conversation to expose the author.
I give my full support to this book.

I do not judge books based on the actor(s) / narrator(s) only the story line and content.
Thank you for your time, but to reinforce, i would reread and recommend this specific title.

I only give 5 stars in my top 10% of books.

This series is excellent!

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.

Great love story

I loved this entire series. The only thing I felt was missing in the last book of the series was Manning’s point of view. I loved how the other books provided both Lake and Manning’s point of view. Would have loved to heard his also.

Smiled like a schoolgirl

This was a perfect ending. I was smiling so much throughout the book my face hurts. I rarely feel like I “know” the characters of the books I read... but by the end of this series, i wasn’t just passively viewing the story from afar... I was standing next to them and they were telling me the story. It was a great series and will definitely listen again.

A brilliant ending to a brilliant series!

Lake + Manning is the last book in the Something In The Way series by Jessica Hawkins and it's a brilliant ending to what has been a brilliant series. Andi Arndt was an amazing narrator. I absolutely recommend it!
