Synopsis

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 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.

Review

Jessica Hawkins please tell me how one is supposed to possibly move on after giving their heart so completely to this emotionally raw and captivating series?!

This is the story that I have been craving long and hard for ever since devouring Something in the Way back in February, but now that it was here I wasn’t sure if I was going to be ready to say goodbye to Manning and Lake…I feel as if I’ve become so emotionally invested in these two that there was no way I could say goodbye to them, but as we say…“all good things must come to an end.”

FOR·BID·DEN – not allowed; banned: that is perhaps the worst feeling that Manning and Lake have dealt with since that fateful summer they met when Lake was a mere sixteen years old. Two lost and beautiful souls that were meant to be together, but obstacles forever seemed to keep them apart. Each time SOMETHING or SOMEONE got it the way of their happiness my heart broke a little more until nothing was left.

In Something in the Way my heart was split in two. Then in Somebody Else’s Sky it was torn out, shredded into a million pieces and then thrown into a pit of fire to burn until October. Finally, Move the Stars slowly began to repair the damage in PART 1 (yes I just said that) before promptly tossing it back into the burning pit of fire before oh so painfully sewing it back together again by the end of PART 2. I feel as if this series will forever hold a piece of my heart and every time I think about Manning and Lake butterflies will fill my tummy…tears will fill my eyes and my heart will speed into overdrive.

Jessica Hawkins I must applaud you and say…NO…SHOUT that Move the Stars was a brilliant conclusion to one of the BEST series that I have ever read!
