The final book in the Something in the Way series, a love saga.

Manning and I have what happily-ever-after is made of . . .
A home he built us on the unshakeable foundation we fought for.
A life of laughter carved out of heartache and betrayal.
A love story to stand the test of time.

But between a trust that can’t be broken, joy that can’t be bridled, and passion that would scorch the sun, the empty spaces are becoming more and more difficult to ignore . . .

Fears that keep Manning up at night as he slips from our bed.

Our complicated relationship with a man he respects and one I don’t know how to forgive.

And a sprawling, beautiful home with one small room I’m afraid I’ll never be able to fill.

Manning and I have what happily-ever-after is made of . . .
But I’ll beg the heavens for just one thing more.


After finishing Move the Stars back in October I never expected to get more of Lake and Manning’s story so imagine my surprise when Jessica Hawkins announced that she was giving her readers what they wanted…MORE! I wasn’t sure what to expect with this story, but I feel as if I got everything I needed and everything I never expected with the final story in the Something in the Way saga. This is the kind of story that gives readers ALL THE FEELS and will leave their hearts reeling right until the very end (and long after).

Lake + Manning is a beautifully captivating story with a that gut-wrenching emotion in the pit of your stomach. My heart wept for these two because although they moved the stars, neither one of them expected their life to turn out the way it did. Love will conquer all, but that doesn’t mean the heartache is over for these two. This was an extraordinary story and I can’t believe that it is officially over, but I am so fortunate that Jessica Hawkins gave us more because we needed to see more of their happily ever after.
