Review: Move The Stars (Something In the Way #3) by Jessica Hawkins


Move the Stars, the highly anticipated conclusion to the Something in the Way series by Jessica Hawkins is LIVE!


Move The Stars (Something In the Way #3) by Jessica Hawkins

Release Date: October 23, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance



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.


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.

My Review

I’ve never been so utterly consumed by a single story like I’ve been with the SOMETHING IN THE WAY series. I mean, months of thinking about them and wondering where their story would lead. When I finished SOMEBODY ELSE’S SKY, my heart was literally shattered. I was full blown sobbing. I’d never felt such heartache for a character like I did Lake. I needed the conclusion to her and Manning’s story. Needed it.

The wait for MOVE THE STARS felt like light years, but it was so worth the wait. Not going to lie—I was both nervous and excited going into it. I couldn’t stop talking about the anxious feeling I had leading up to reading it. My husband literally had to tell me to get it together…lol. All I’m going to say is Jessica did an incredible job with this epic conclusion. She has a beautiful gift for bringing such strong reactions and emotions from readers with her words. There were moments my heart continued to break for Lake and Manning. Moments I experienced anger, but there were also moments where my heart absolutely soared. The ending to this series was simply perfection.

The SOMETHING IN THE WAY series deserves all the stars in the sky. These characters and this captivating, all-consuming series will forever be etched in my heart, and forever engraved as one of my all time favorite series.
