Release Blitz with Review: Somebody else's Sky by Jessica Hawkins

May 22, 2017

Title: Somebody Else's Sky
Series: Something in the Way #2
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017


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 Something in the Way series, an epic, 3-book saga of forbidden love...

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 filled with hope and everything else money can buy and just as they were about to hand it over to me, they fucking popped it and took everything with them!! I’m angry, frustrated, disappointed, and I have this strong urge to smack the ever loving hell out of more than one fictional character to the point where I want to do more.

After that cliffhanger in “Something in the Way” we were left with the endless possibilities of what was going to happen between Lake and Manning. Will they be reunited later on or will Manning continue to keep his distance after he gets out of prison? Doing whatever it takes to pass the time and figure out his next move once he gets out, Manning is trying his best to forget about Lake but what he fails to realize is that she’s someone you can’t forget.

I was literally chomping at the bit to see how everything was going to play out and knowing this was a love triangle of sorts, it was going to be messy and I was prepared for it. What I wasn’t prepared for was this all consuming rage that I developed while reading this book! One minute I was calm and was loving the flow of the story and the next, it’s like someone flipped the crazy switch on me and I was trying to figure out how I can get away with killing off these characters! I was a hot mess for the entire 24 chapters I kid you not, and I kept thinking to myself: why the hell don’t I have a drink in my hand? 

I have always loved this author’s writing and her ability to evoke these kind of emotions out of her readers is why she’s one of my favorites but……these characters seriously tested me. I couldn’t for the life of me understand why Manning along with other characters did certain things and I didn’t care how many times they tried to rationalize it, it was dumb and the wrong decision. I’ve never wanted to throat punch someone so hard in my life!! I really wasn’t expecting this kind of outcome and if I’m being honest, I wanted more from this storyline with Manning’s past and Lake coming into her own a little bit more. 

If you’ve read the first book, then I know you’re dying to get your hands in this one. What didn’t work for me might just be what makes you fall in love with this story even more, so please don’t let this review stop you. I was just hoping for a different outcome.
