Release Blitz ~ #Review ~ Somebody Else's Sky by Jessica Hawkins

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...

5 of 5 stars

I went into this book nervous and anxious. There was a lot of hype about it, and in light of the love triangle that is going on, the way things ended in book one, and the fact that I know there's still one more book to come for everything to be resolved, my tension was so high going in. I can't give an adequate description of what this book is about without giving things away, but I'll say you definitely shouldn't be reading this one if you haven't read book one because this story picks up shortly after where that one ended. 

Things started differently then I expected, and they kept going in directions I either didn't expect, or, I admit, a few I didn't want. This is the first time I loved the writing skills of an author, felt every emotion meant to be felt, was hooked to every word, and yet felt my heart break with every chapter that passed.

Some of the characters showed sides of themselves I didn't know they had. They showed depths, or vulnerabilities, or levels of hurt and hopelessness I wasn't prepared for. I felt this book showed things from an angle I wasn't even looking for in book one. I didn't feel the same way about everyone when I finished as I did when I began. 

By the time the last word was read, I was shattered and I don't know how to put myself back together. The final book can't come soon enough. And yet after the way this one ended, I don't know what to expect, how things could possibly work out the way I think they should have, or if I even want that any more. This book just left me torn.
