"This is the best slow-burn romance I have ever read.”—New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward
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, a completed USA TODAY bestselling love saga and a top 3 iBooks Romance bestseller.
Killing me slowly with the slow burn and intense feels!
Jessica Hawkins is killing me slowly with the most excruciating combination of a slow burn and an overdose of emotion. This story isn't anything at all what I expected it would be, yet I'm loving it all the same. I can't even tell you the number of times I wanted to SCREAM while reading this book. As the story progresses, Jessica Hawkins just keeps upping the ante on the forbidden factor. In my head, I'm screaming at the characters and practically begging them to get with MY program. My heart breaks for Lake and Manning. Tiffany and her father make me feel stabby. There isn't an excess of heat or steam like I normally find with Jessica's books, but this book literally has ALL the feels. Dear Lord, please hurry up and bring me October so I can see how it all turns out!
Here's a short excerpt from the book that pretty much sums up my feelings about it.
"I didn't want to look, but I couldn't help it. I wanted to know where he was. How he was. Always. Even while he was shredding my heart."
