Publisher's Summary

Book three in the Something in the Way series. Includes an exclusive Q&A with the author-only available in the audiobook! "One of the best books of 2017 I've read." -- USA Today's Happy Ever After 
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.

Two Great Narrators Paired on this Great Listen

Awesome continuation in the saga, but if you listen/read it first it can be a stand-a-lone and not miss out on the main points of history, but listening/reading each book individually is sooooo worth it! I can't wait for the fourth and final book in this epic saga.

Ending that was left with so many question.

I started to listen to the three book series on a Friday and by Sunday morning about 3 am. I finished it. I literally could not stop listening. This has been one of the most intense series that I have ever read/listened to this year. I still can't get this story out of my head.

Each character including the supporting characters, brought out so many emotions for me.... good and bad. This 3rd installment is the contination (4 years later) after Manning goes back the Cali, leaving Lake uoset after learning that Tiffany is now pregnant with his child. we ultimately learn what happened to Tiffany and Manning after he leave Lake in New York, which is heartbreaking but a neccessary plot direction if you are Team Lake and Manning, which Im sure most people are. Even though this was probably my least favorite book, I loved the scenes when Lake and Manning are forced to expose their secrete. One of my favorite scenes is when Lake and Tiffany reunite as adults to have an honest discussion about their relationship with Manning and the damaged that all three caused each other. I have mixed feeling about the ending. Even though the reunion between Manning and Lake is good, I felt it was a bit rushed. I felt like I needed more because I was left with so many unanswered questions about all the characters.

I still gave this bookb a 5 star review, but I would have only given a 4 star if I had not learned that Jessica Hawkins decided to do one more book on Manning and Lake's life going forward. The narration is brilliant and Andi and Zachary bring so much to all the characters. They are two of my favorites.
