Publisher's Summary

Book three in the Something in the Way series. Includes an exclusive Q&A with the author-only available in the audiobook! "One of the best books of 2017 I've read." -- USA Today's Happy Ever After 

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.

Please make Zach Webber the new voice for Siri...

I can’t lie. I purposely seek out books read by Zachary Webber. He is by far the best in his craft and I’ve been doing this since the days of Frank Muller, who was also pure genius! Although two very different performers, there is just something about Webber that brings a new dimension to each and every character. His voice is velvety smooth, bravado just perfect! I can’t imagine Manning any other way! I have listened to Arndt as well and I think she too was a smart choice for Lake, but Webber could probably recite the alphabet and I’d be in heaven! Bring on the steamy conclusion!

Two Great Narrators Paired on this Great Listen

Awesome continuation in the saga, but if you listen/read it first it can be a stand-a-lone and not miss out on the main points of history, but listening/reading each book individually is sooooo worth it! I can't wait for the fourth and final book in this epic saga.

Applause

This series has so much heartache you will need several boxes of tissues! The first two books I couldn’t read straight through. The emotional pressure of this Love was overwhelming! Applause, standing ovation! Author- Narration both beautiful!

Disappointed

Should have been part of the second book, not worth another book or credit. Found myself rolling my eyes towards the end, too cheesy and desperate

Love

After reading Move the stars, I knew I couldn’t wait to hear it in audio. The narrators Jessica chose we’re perfect! Going Back to re reading the series I hear their voices in my head. It brings the emotions back to surface and it was perfect!

An amazing conclusion, or is it?

I loved this series of books so much that I decided to listen to them after having read all three. It is an epic love saga that just grips you from the first chapter of book one. For the audio books, I loved hearing the heart wrenching scenes play out and the readers did a great job. I tend to read really fast so the audio allows me to feel the angst and desperation the characters are feeling. My only critique is that Zach Webber does not sound like a guy from LA; there is a very unique lilt to a SoCal voice. But he does a great job otherwise as Manning. Jessica Hawkins is an excellent writer and I loved all these characters, even Tiffany who should be hard to like. But both sides of the sisters’ difficult relationship comes through. I’m so happy she decided to write book 4 as I really think we need to hear more about how Lake and Manning mange their relationship. It’s really just starting and while it’s fun to imagine what comes next when a book concludes, I think this time there’s too much left unfinished. Lake’s relationship with her parents and with Corbin. And she hints st some difficulty having children so the happily ever after may not be right around the corner. Looking forward to the release of Lake and Manning!

Ending that was left with so many question.

I started to listen to the three book series on a Friday and by Sunday morning about 3 am. I finished it. I literally could not stop listening. This has been one of the most intense series that I have ever read/listened to this year. I still can't get this story out of my head.

Each character including the supporting characters, brought out so many emotions for me.... good and bad. This 3rd installment is the contination (4 years later) after Manning goes back the Cali, leaving Lake uoset after learning that Tiffany is now pregnant with his child. we ultimately learn what happened to Tiffany and Manning after he leave Lake in New York, which is heartbreaking but a neccessary plot direction if you are Team Lake and Manning, which Im sure most people are. Even though this was probably my least favorite book, I loved the scenes when Lake and Manning are forced to expose their secrete. One of my favorite scenes is when Lake and Tiffany reunite as adults to have an honest discussion about their relationship with Manning and the damaged that all three caused each other. I have mixed feeling about the ending. Even though the reunion between Manning and Lake is good, I felt it was a bit rushed. I felt like I needed more because I was left with so many unanswered questions about all the characters.

I still gave this bookb a 5 star review, but I would have only given a 4 star if I had not learned that Jessica Hawkins decided to do one more book on Manning and Lake's life going forward. The narration is brilliant and Andi and Zachary bring so much to all the characters. They are two of my favorites.

Books 3 kept me wanting more

Jessica Hawkins did it again. She was able to tap in to that familiar place that most people bottle up and push aside. Allowing for reality to take charge.

With the Lake and Manning are again faced with the fact that 2 star crossed lovers may have never meant to be. Faced with life, family, and timing They find themselves alone and saddened. Were they only meant to be friends and love from a far? Is life that unfair? Reality? Being faced with that realization Lake how to make decisions that could in the chance of this love affair ever being a reality.

I was sat in by the ending of the series only to be surprised that Jessica could not end their story and wrote a book 4. Now, I have to face the torture of having to wait for its release.

OH BOY!!

I have loved this story from start to finish and am so glad that there is going to be a fourth book. It is clear from Jessica Hawkins' Q and A at the end of Move The Stars that her own story has moved her as much as it did me. I lived the story with the characters and felt their pain, their frustration and, ultimately, their passion.
This series is beautifully sculpted, empathetic and well written. It is also beautifully and sensitively narrated and performed by two First Class Narrators Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber - a fantastic choice, Jessica and a beautiful story!

Fantastic

This audio book is 10 stars, the narrators are amazing, I’d listen to them reading the phone book. A fitting audio for a GREAT book.
