The highly anticipated conclusion to the Something in the Way series, a forbidden love saga.

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

⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2! Move the Stars, book 3 of 3. Manning & Lake’s bittersweet, enchanting, forbidden & against-all-odds love saga!

“I wanted those words she’d swallowed and saved, as much as I wanted to be the only man to ever get them.”

Books in series should be read in order:
Book 1: Something in the Way
Book 2: Somebody Else’s Sky
Book 3: Move the Stars
Book 4: Lake + Manning


In book 1-2 innocent high-school student Lake Kaplan fell in love with the much older construction worker, Manning Sutter.

MOVE THE STARS IS ONE OF THE MOST EPIC ROMANCES I HAVE EVER READ!!!

Every once in a while you read a story that has you so consumed. So addicted. So in love. You. Just. Can't. Deal. You are so wrapped up in the story, you don’t want to think about anything else. That is the effect the Something in the Way series has had on me, and so many others. I’ve never witnessed so many people so passionate about a story. It’s been MONTHS since Something in the Way and Somebody Els

I really enjoyed Jessica Hawkin's writing... it's engaging and exciting, or at least it was, until I got to book #3. I won't lie and say that I didn't exactly understand (or relate) to a 16 year old girl who was willing to destroy her future because of her love for a guy. I just remember myself at 16 and yes, I had some strong feelings, and yes, sometimes it felt like it was the end of the world... but somehow I was able to move on over time. I guess I didn't understand why this heroine

What the fuck just happened.

I pre-ordered this back in September after reading the first book because I fell in love with Manning and Lake. The second one ripped me apart and I had a pretty good idea where this was going.

I was 100% correct in my predictions which pisses me off since this was a huge cliche and WTF...

I wasn't going to post a detailed review but fuck that.

“Do you want to change everything?”

This is it...the conclusion of Manning and Lake's story. At the ending of the last book, we were left hanging with sooo many questions! Will he go through with it? Is it a farce? How much is Lake's Dad influencing things? Will Lake leave? Will she experience life without Manning? They were just so many questions it was driving me crazy.

And Jessica Hawkins doesn't let us suffer, oh no, she dives right into things leaving me a bit shocked...and thrilled.

I was swept off my feet by this story. The chemistry is undeniable. The passion is incredible. Relationships are hard, and Manning and Lake had to learn to grow their relationship on their own terms.
This is a story of true love, devotion, sacrifice and respect. The sex is steamy and the love is undeniable. This is an amazing, 5 star read!

I had zero intent of reading "Move the Stars" though not because of any bad writing style as it has been written with finesse by a word surgeon,delicately wielding a thin blade into an open wound,it is that angsty.

I was actually pulled back into this world by notifications of readers that had come across the review of the preceding book in the series that I had done.In the hope that the events had improved with time,I hesitantly stepped back

Not sure how or where to start this review. I knew this book was going to rock my world but I didn't realise just how much. It was the perfect and only way this story could end, but I have to say, there were times I almost couldn't cope. Jessica's writing almost broke me today. She is crazy talented and solidified as a Forever Author for me.

There are those books that just work. They stay with you, you believe in them both during the book and at the ending.

The ones that keep you up at night (I was up until 1am) the ones that make your heart jump in your chest, that make you want to skip ahead to the ending to relieve the tension (I didn't but I would be lying if I said I didn't think about it fleetingly, a time or 2) and that make you cry. Not sniffle, but actual tears.

Love is enough. Jessica Hawkins has written an intimate love story that could only belong to the two involved. Yet, I’m so honored to have shared it with them through her poetic words. Move the Stars is a satisfying, warm fire on a cold night, heart-wrenching, heart-filling conclusion to what has become a favorite of series of mine.

Absolutely outstanding. My heart was pounding in overdrive the whole time, but yet, I didn't ever want it to end. I could barely come up for air while I inhaled and devoured this book. The good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful, it was all there. Talk about an epic conclusion to an amazing story about love, where that love goes through so many ups and downs with unfortunate timing and a few stolen moments here and there, but is never forgotten or buried. And how the characters persevere and g ...more

“We were written in the stars
but would the story ever be ours?”


To say that the third instalment of Jessica Hawkins Something in the Way series was highly anticipated would be a MASSIVE understatement. This series has literally consumed me while reading it, as I just had to keep reading to find out how this forbidden love story between Lake and Manning would progress and evolve…..

To me, Hawkins writing is just pure genius… she takes a tough subject which some may find a little uncomfortable

First thing that I need to point out is how disproportionate the pacing was: the first part (67% of the book) covered barely 5 days which were spent in NY, when the span of next four years played out in only a couple chapters. Despite the first-class writing style, the fast transition and time gap between those two gave me a whiplash.

As angsty as the previous two books were, my sitting on pins and needles and kindle gripping ended abruptly at around 2/3rd's of the novel (a

I craved this book so badly. Needed to know this conclusion and counted the days until it was with me.
There comes a time when an author writes a series that you basically live through the characters, wish upon them, suffer with them, want the best for them, or the worse. This series is one of my favorite series ever. The conclusion is simply PERFECTION. The emotion, the feels, the angst.

This book is REAL.

This book is RAW.

This book is MESSY.

In other words, this book is LIFE.

From the minute I turned the last page of Somebody Else's Sky back in May, I have done little else but think about how this epic story of forbidden love would end.

I dreamed up no less than a million different scenarios, and I couldn't have been further from the reality of what Jessica Hawkins gives us in Move the Stars.

I knew what I wanted, but in the end I got everything I didn't even know I needed.

What an incredible ending to this gut-wrenching and emotional series! This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year and it did not disappoint! This is book 3 in the Something in the Way series and is not a stand alone. It should only be read after reading the prior 2 books, Something in the Way and Somebody Else's Sky.

From that very first book, that very first time we met Lake and Manning, Jessica Hawkins has held a part of me. It has been TORTURE enduring all the pain and heartbreak she put me through while reading those books, knowing I had to wait until Move the Stars to reach the end. But NEVER, not once ha

Book 3 started crazily for me. I have a feeling this will not be a popular review, but again...this is only my opinion. I find no fault with the writing, which was top-notch. Where I struggled was that the pacing seemed rather skewed, the first 60% or so, was based on 5 days of real time... then the rest of the book spans years... and, there is a decided lack of angst. I don't know...I just felt a bit of disconnect. I don't do spoilers so I apologize for the lack of details in this review but... ...more

This takes place about 4 years after the last one and it broke my heart but it also made it soar. Because of this, I wasn't too mad at Jessica... Who am I kidding, I can never be mad at the woman who single-handedly gave me the book I've been waiting to read for years.

This series has been one of the most emotionally gripping and yet rewarding of my life. Not to compare the styles or authors or books; but I can only liken it to how I was after reading Twilight. That series led me to this romance genre of books via fan fiction and opened up a whole new world for me.
