Something in the Way by Jessica Hawkins Release and Review!

Title: Something in the Way
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2017

It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents’ house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. Yet we saw something in each other that would link us in ways that couldn’t be matter how hard we tried.

I loved Manning before I knew the meaning of the word. I was too young, he said. I would wait. Through all the carefully-chosen words hiding what we knew to be true, through his struggle to keep me innocent, and through infinitely-starry nights—I would wait. But I’d learn that life isn’t always fair. That no matter how much you achieve, none of it matters if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn’t matter. My older sister saw him next.

★Review by Jen: 
Something in the Way is a beautifully raw and compelling tale of innocence, love, and consequences. Manning and Lake's heart-wrenching journey will leave you breathless. Jessica Hawkins flawlessly captures the beauty of innocence, and the heartache of forbidden love.

Lake is destined for great things. Her father expects nothing short of perfection from her, and she strives to make him proud. Her older sister Tiffany has always been a wild card, refusing to commit to a college, a career, or a man. With Lake's future predetermined by her father, Lake has settled into a life of hard work with little fun. However, every little girl is bound to grow up, and Lake is already wise beyond her 16 years. Her beautiful heart and resilient spirit radiates off of the pages, and her personal journey to finding her true self unfolds gracefully throughout the book.

Manning is captivated by Lake the moment he lays eyes on her. She is genuine, pure, and untainted by the ugliness of the word, yet she is young. Too young. However, her older sister is not. Sometimes the things that get in the way, can be the same things that hold things together.

Something in the Way is story of two star crossed lovers who could easily find the universe in each other. This is a story about right and wrong, protection, loss, and possibilities. It is a Romeo and Juliet type of story that proves when we narrow our focus on the object of our desires we will be left do deal with the consequences.

Something in the Way is addictive and heartfelt. Jessica brilliantly brings to life these captivating characters that are destined to find a place in your heart! Manning and Lake's story is filled with moments of rare connection, significance, and emotion. Something in the Way is truly special, and I can't wait for the next book in the saga!
