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.

A Waste of Time

This book was so unnecessary. I really dislike lake now, she is so whiny... basically just a bunch of sex scenes and lack of communication about them wanting children and trying to have them... the previous book should have ended it.

Good ending but rushed

I was glad to hear the finish to Lake & Manning's love story but I felt it was rushed. I was happy to come across this series as I always rushed to my vehicle to hear Lake & Manning's story via e-book.

Great ending to a really good series.

Would you consider the audio edition of Lake + Manning to be better than the print version?

Love, love, love Andi!

Which scene was your favorite?

All of it.

Any additional comments?

This was an end to a really good series that drove me crazy, in a good way, for much of it. It’s a good story that can keep you guessing as to how and when a couple will get their HEA.

Glad to say bye to Lake and Manning

Would you try another book from Jessica Hawkins and/or Andi Arndt?

I'm not sure.

What do you think your next listen will be?

A thriller

What three words best describe Andi Arndt’s voice?

She's ok, but I kind of felt that there she made Lake and Manning seem like they were "Debbie Downers." Of course, she still did a better job than I could ever do.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lake + Manning?

The whole angst about everything!

Sweet

I would have liked a little more but that's just because I love these characters so much! I also would have liked to hear somethings from Manning's perspective but all in all this was great! Sad that is over😢

just OK

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

not really, I wish I had stopped at book 3#.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I wish I knew.

What aspect of Andi Arndt’s performance would you have changed?

Andi is a great narrator, but she can only read the words that are written.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

less pregnancy angst ..

Sad to see them go!

This book was the perfect way to end the story of Lake and Manning! I’m really sad to close the chapter on one of my favorite book couples! The only minor issue I had with this book was not having pieces of the story told from Manning’s perspective. We did in the first 3. There’s a few parts in here I would’ve loved to have his input. But other than that really great, not a deal breaker for me.
