SPOILER FREE REVIEW
Once again, Jessica has almost rendered me speechless....almost. There is so much to say about this series, it's hard to know where to begin. First off, let me say that in all the reading I've done I have not felt the emotion and connection to the characters like I have in the SITW series. My thoughts have never been this consumed by a love story, EVER!
Lake and Manning's journey is a love story of epic proportions. To say that you will experience every emotion under the sun is an understatement. You will feel hope, anger, frustration, hatred, lust, love; you get the idea. The list can go on and on. I cried tears of joy and I cried tears of sadness and despair. The emotional roller coaster you'll be on can take a toll, but it is completely, wholeheartedly, 100% worth every minute of your time. You will fall in love with these characters as if they are your family and you have their best interests in mind. You will feel resentment and anger towards to the ones you think are inflicting pain on them. The urge to scream at the top of your lungs and cry in the next breath is inevitable.
Jessica's writing is flawless and she is not afraid to cross the line. It will take you by surprise, but the journey she takes you on is nothing short of fantastic. There is so much angst and passion in this love story you can only imagine how Jessica must have felt putting her thoughts and words to paper. Jessica pulls you into the story with every word, every twist and turn you don't see coming. She is with you every step of the way and you have no choice but to trust that she'll give us what we need, what we want.
It's hard to believe we've waited a good portion of the year for the fate of these characters. This was probably my most highly anticipated read of the year. I won't forget about them anytime soon. The likelihood of me discussing this story for months to come with my favorite book whores is pretty much a given! I have never seen a story captivate and connect people to one another like this series. To say that this love story has become an obsession is an understatement and I wouldn't have it any other way.
This love story is beautiful, painful, raw and emotional. The characters have captured my heart like no other. Do I recommend this series?!?! Yes, yes, I do with every fiber of my being. It won't be easy to move on from this love story, but it's what my "family" would want for me. They will forever be in my heart ❤❤❤
This book is RAW.
This book is MESSY.
In other words, this book is LIFE.
From the minute I turned the last page of Somebody Else's Sky back in May, I have done little else but think about how this epic story of forbidden love would end.
I dreamed up no less than a million different scenarios, and I couldn't have been further from the reality of what Jessica Hawkins gives us in Move the Stars.
I knew what I wanted, but in the end I got everything I didn't even know I needed.
I had tears in my eyes throughout. Happy tears, sad tears, hopeful tears, romantic tears, angry tears, and anxious tears. I felt everything. And then I felt some more.
At one point, at 1AM, I stepped away from the book. I thought I had hit the limit of what I could take. But Lake and Manning were calling to me, and I knew I had to finish.
Jessica pushed me past what I thought my limits were, and I read the remainder of the book holding my breath, waiting, waiting (and secretly wanting) Jessica to push me again.
This book, and the entire series, is absolute perfection. Lake and Manning hold a piece of my heart that is theirs forever.
I cannot recommend this book and series enough. It is special for many reasons, and is quite possibly my favorite of all time.
The Something in the Way series has brought me book friends and honest, open hilarious relationships with women that I will treasure for always. I was a fan of Jessica's prior to the SitW series, and will continue to be her fan as long as she writes for us.
Move the Stars is the conclusion of the series, you MUST have read the other two books. I will have no spoilers in this review, because I want you to experience every emotion for the first time on your own. And trust me you will experience every emotion in MtS, that you have experienced in the other two books. Possibly even deeper because you know the end is coming. Jessica has made me scream in happiness, sob uncontrollably, put the book down and walk away, so ragey I couldn't speak and start all over again. These characters are flawed. Perfectly, accurately, truly flawed; there is not one I can point to and say well they were perfect. And why should you? I want stories to provoke emotion and thought and conversation. Jessica writes from her soul; it pours on to the pages and then seeps into your bones and only leaves you when you expel your next breath.
I'm not going to sit here and say I loved all the characters every second of this conclusion, but I feel their journey and that to me is the true mark of a good character and exceptional writing. You will physically hurt for them and you will physically love for them. It's unavoidable.
Even though I am legitimately devastated to see this series end, I'm so thankful for the lasting connections and emotions it has brought out in the readers and ME! I have NEVER, NEVER seen such passion brought forth from words on a page. I can't wait to see what Jessica has in store for us next.
Side Note: I was the lucky recipient of an ARC copy of the paperback book at the 2017 Big Apple Author Event!! So I actually read this one in paperback, and it gave me a paper cut!! hahahahaha. I thought that was so fitting for the end of Manning and Lake's story. I literally bled for them.

Thanks and look forward to more of your Booms!
I'm always for a happy ending but.... it was kind of frustrating that Lake put her life practically on hold for Manning.Read more
