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.

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!

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 !!!!!!!

A heartwarming journey..

I love that this book allowed more of an insight into Manning and his thoughts. I felt the story was sweet and enjoyable, though at times it did seem predictable and maybe even dragged a big. However, the voice performance of Andi and Sebastian were so perfect yet again that it made this book an easy, quick listen! I’ve already purchased the third installment only moments after finishing the second book.
If you’re looking for a sweet, but not always easy love- this is a great book for you.

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.

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.
