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 willing ...more

This is one well written tale of self inflicted angst that is going to arouse the pain buds of many into full bloom.In this instance it's mostly going to be a case of me missing this asylum of despair as I'm just not understanding the sacrifice of the hero.He is so epically in love with one underaged sister (17yrs old) yet lowers his expectations to being fully involved sexually with her elder hot sibling that culminates in an eternal commitment.

I knew I was in for a epic journey after the ending of Something in the Way. I knew I would be in for a heart wrenching experience, but I had no damn idea just how much this book would affect me. I have been trying to come up with the right words to even BEGIN to describe my feelings about Somebody Else’s Sky. I’m not sure I can even come close, but I’m going to try.

For the first time in a very long time, I don’t know how to articulate how I’m feeling while writing a review. So with that being said for now, I won’t be giving a rating for this book because I honestly don’t know HOW to rate it. This was one of my most highly anticipated reads for the year and I can’t tell you how much I was looking forward to reading this and finally getting some answers, but do you know how I feel right now? I feel like someone just gave me the biggest balloon

I suited myself up with as much armor and padding as possible before I dove into this book because I just *knew* it was going to take me places that I hadn't been in a while with a book with the slow burn angst alone. And by golly, it did. But I loved every bit of this story despite my suspicions and where it went because oh boy, it pushes the limits. So many feels, there's a particular intense scene towards the end regarding a charged conversation that only Jessica Hawkins can write and make co ...more

I started reading this book last night and only made it to 11% before the day caught up with me and I had to stop. I needed a good nights sleep so I paused reading until this morning. Well, let's just say I fucking devoured this book. I was in between raging and crying most of the time. I've NEVER had a book make me so damn mad and break my heart at the same time.

This review is challenging to write as I don't want to give away too much from Something in the Way or this book. I will say this though. I haven't even read book 3 - Move the Stars yet and this is my new favorite Trilogy. And most people that know me, know I don't really care for Trilogies. I don't like cliffhangers, I don't have the attention span to make it all the way through.... but these books? There are only a couple of books that I can say that I was so engrossed in that I shut out the c ...more

“She was everything I wanted and nothing I could ever have.”

After finishing Something In The Way all those months ago, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the second installment of this unique and epic romance, Somebody Else's Sky. I was finally going to get some answers to the many questions I had after completing book one……. BUT……. I’m back in that same space I was after finishing the first book. I NEED ANSWERS AND I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT… Is it October yet? …..No…..dammit!
This woman AMAZES me with every single word she writes. I'm BLOWN AWAY constantly by the brilliance that shines through with each turn of the page. This book has BROKEN ME in the best possible way, and all I can do is put my trust in this incredibly talented author and believe that she and her characters will make me whole again.

3.5 Stars

Overall Opinion: This was an enjoyable continuation of their story. I was in the mood for angst, and this has provided me with that! I am sure that many readers will have issues with Manning and his decisions in regards to Lake, but at this point I feel like I understand. Love is messy and his horrible past has proved that. I'm ready to jump into the next book, Move the Stars, and see how Ms. Hawkins is going to have this all play out...

It was ridiculous , it is not a love story ... Lake is weak as hell, Manning doesn't fight for her, he wants to do the right things but he just break Lake...
I think the love triangle should stop here, it is going too far
I don't know how Jessica Hawkins could fix things between Lake and Manning is book 2, it has gone too far!

If I was in Lake's shoes I would never forgive Manning ! It is one thing to push Lake away, it is another to go with her sister right under her nose knowing she is in love

OH Jessica.... You make me want more everytime! This book has done me in. I am left empty with nothing left to feel, because I used all the feels during the reading of this book! I can't wait for the next one... you constantly leave me in a state of shock! Your writing is amazing and you know just how to twist my gut!

Soo, now I will just sit and wait for October!

I have to get my thoughts together. I seriously am going to go bananas until book 3 releases in October. I'm not sure how things are going to go but I'm so frustrated and conflicted right now! I had a hard time being in Manning's head at times, especially when he was with Tiffany. And then I felt bad for Lake.

OMG!!! I won an ARC!! I'll have Manning early!!! OMG! I'm so excited!!! I can't wait to receive it!! Ahhhhhh!!!!!

Jessica Hawkins what in the world have you done to me? I've read books in the past that have made me ugly cry and do the emotional "I never want this story to end" scream, but that is nothing compared to how I felt after devouring this story. Ever since reading Something in the Way back in February I've been craving the second installment of this highly anticipated epic saga - because come on anyone who has read the first book immediately knew th

That was so cruel. Or was it? Maybe it was. I don't know!!! When I first finished the story, I was mad, really mad like super-ragey-angry-mad, I was basically all of the emoji faces all at once, especially the one with snot fuming out of its nose. Because that was me. I was crying, pacing, yelling and probably looking like a damn fool. Thank god I don't have a nanny cam because that wouldn't be

First Question? Why Can't I give this book 10 Stars.... This Series is Everything....Manning is becoming my favorite character. DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVE NOT READ - SOMETHING IN THE WAY (BOOK 1)
In Somebody Else's Sky you find Manning paying the ultimate price to protect the girl he loves... He knows he can & will never be with Lake. Manning feels that he has changed beyond repair, he is no good for Lake, and can snap at any moment. His growing relationship with Tiffany while still away from h

JUST. YES. I love angst SO FREAKING MUCH and Hawkins always delivers. I fell in love with her after reading Slip of the Tongue, and every book I've read since has just solidified the love affair.

Book one in this series was absolutely nothing like I imagined it would be, and this book was the same. It was so unpredictable, and in the last 20%, my heart was in my throat from all the intensity. I had no idea what was going to happen, and as the events (and emotions) unfolded, I found myself gnawin

I seriously have no words, yet, a thousand thoughts are running through my head.
How, why, when, no, never, I can't, I don't, stop, please...I have no idea what I feel, but I FEEL everything.
It has been a damn good while since I've been this invested in a series.
My mind is consumed. I can't focus and I'm, without a doubt, headed into one of the biggest book hangovers ever!!! October feels like worlds away!!

Bookphenomena (Micky)
The second instalment of this trilogy continues to project some discomfort at both the ages of two the three MCs and also with regards to the sibling relationships. It's a discomfort I'm happy to feel because this is a story that pushes the boundaries and makes you consider what is personally acceptable. There was some degree of fluidity with this for me, as the emotions of Lake and Manning made me reconsider, however, I kept returning to a place of discomfort.

I love a book filled with angst but jeez...

For Lake for not screaming her feelings to the world...

To Manning for truly being a "good guy" and not giving in to his love for the correct sister...

And Tiffany...

But mostly, I'm mad at myself because even though I feel crazy right now I adore this series. Jessica Hawkins knows how to write a beautiful story. Characters that feel truly real... Characters that a

I have craved having this book the second I finished reading Something in the Way (Book 1). This is definitely one of my most anticipated books this year. When it was in my hands I devoured it.
It took me about three days to be able to write a review about Somebody Else's Sky. This has been the first time that I had been unable to form the right words to express my feelings because I was left speechless. No words.

OMG. This book is everything. Jessica Hawkins promised her readers a saga and she totally delivered. The second book in this series is more explosive and heart-breaking than the first! She really puts Lake and Manning through the wringer and truly creates wonderfully complex characters. Every single character reveals new sides and new secrets which is one of the best parts of this book. I also liked the addition of Val, Lake's new best friend, because she is exactly what Lake needs in her life. ...more

I need more stars!! Five isn't enough.
I was a wreck before I'd even started this book. I'm talking sweaty palms and heart palpitations. Like most people I'd fallen in love with Lake and Manning and to say I was desperate for more of their story is the understatement of the century. My heart raced manically from start to finish and I don't think I took a proper breath for hours. I'm not going into details at all with this review so it's going to be very vague.

Manning annoyed me so much in this

I LOVE all the drama surrounding this book. For those of you that know me, you know I love emotional/angsty books and this series has that written All. Over. It.

From the first book with the triangle set up involving the two sisters to finding out this would be a three book series, I KNEW this book would rip our hearts out.

To be fair, it bugs the hell out of me that Manning has the slightest interest in Tiffany but then again, it bugs the hell out of me that Lake is so young.

We get a lot
