I just want to SCREAM!!!! I am overly excited about the possibilities with this new series!! I am smiling like a loon after reading this first book and what it all means, but I seriously shook my head and said "WHAT" at the end of it. Walk on the wild side....slouch your socks, crimp your hair into a side pony, turn up your boombox and take a trip back to the 90's. This first book in this brand new forbidden series is a must read!! I don't want to chat so much about this book in my review and give anything away, but I want you to understand how amazing this book was. SO. FREAKING. GOOD. So many quotable lines and so many highlighted passages that I cannot wait to discuss with you. Seriously....SO GOOD. I am giddy with the possibilities, I tell ya! GIDDY!
"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."
Based on the synopsis, we get a good idea about the forbidden aspect of this book, but I want to point out that Jessica did an amazing job making us feel Lake's frustration with everyone thinking she was too young, and actually making her actions prove she was very definitely too young. Lake was so determined and so innocent, her naïveté showed. It was so refreshing and angering, all wrapped in one. I loved being able to remember those feelings I had when I was her age back in the 90's. The memories alone of being in love with someone older than you, this was definitely a trip down memory lane. I loved feeeeeling this one and remembering those emotions that I had when I was falling in love for the first time. YOU GUYS!! You have to read this one!!! YOU HAVE TO! Suffer the cliffie with me, pleeeease, and remember we will all be scrambling after the ending, but the place she left off leaves us with breathing room. It allows for reflection and discussion galore!
"I'll promise you something better. Wherever I go, I won't abandon you."
I wonder how long it will take Manning to realize that all he is doing is lying to himself to avoid the inevitable. The theories and possibilities on this book are abundant. I cannot wait until May!!!! Make sure to add Someone Else's Sky to your TBR!!! And when you finish this first book, come join us in the Something in the Way Discussion Room.....theories and questions are running rampant!
"I was better than her at hiding it, but my reaction to her was the same. Physical. Powerful. Painful."
Jessica what have you done to me.
You are the QUEEN of drama and slow burn. You get me every single time with your love, angst, and heartbreak.
Lake will make everyone remember what its like to be 16 and fall in love for the first time. Lake is a typical sweet shy girl trying to please her parents and find her way in life.
Until she finds it in the form of Manning. "The finder of braclets, hoarder of ciagarettes, and a Pink Floyd beast of a man." Oh Jessica you can write a lead male like no other. This is the story of forbidden love, growing up, discovering who you are and where you're meant to be.
The supporting characters are well thought out, each playing an important part in young Lakes life.
Where will this story go, I cannot wait to find out.
"I've never even kissed someone, she said close to my ear. Never wanted to before."
Who will be her first but the big question who will be her last?????
Star keeper I believe your name is Maddy.
Amazing story, beautifully written, captures your heart and will hold your attention.
This book? ALL. THE. DEADS. What am I going to do with my life now? I read this book in ONE sitting. It's not something I do very often. I only moved from the spot where I was reading once. ONCE. To grab a quick bowl of cereal for dinner. And to go relieve my poor bladder. I just couldn't stop. After I finished this book I had a hard time sleeping. I can't stop thinking about these characters, and I'm exhausted. And now I sit here trying to come up with the words to write my review. It's hard. So hard. That's when you know you've read something special. Epic. Magical. Unforgettable.
I fear for what's to come for Manning and Lake. God these two stole my heart. Manning is such a good guy. A man who is tortured by his past. He loves and cares with all that he is and just wants to do what's right for everyone. Lake is so innocent and has such a beautiful soul. I wanted to wrap my arms around her so many times. Wrap my arms around them both. These two are soul mates. I can feel it. They are stars in the sky. I want them to be. Just be. Together. But I know it's going to be a long and heart wrenching journey. I trust that whatever Jessica creates for these characters will be devastating and mind blowing.
The reason I love Jessica's writing so much is that she MAKES. YOU. FEEL. Happiness. Sadness. Lust. Love. Fear. Anger. Heart ache and heart break. Basically? Every emotion possible. She has this way of making you fall utterly and completely into her story. You feel like you are experiencing every emotion her characters are going through. Her stories are all consuming, and Lake and Manning's star-crossed love story is going to break me. Heck I am broken. I think it will only get worse. But I wouldn't have it any other way.
Something In The Way is truly one of the most emotional forbidden romances I have read in a long time. I am so invested in this story, I cannot even. Manning and Lake own me. And so does Jessica. She made me her #b*tch. I'm at her mercy. I can't wait to see what kind of heart crushing journey I'm going to be taken on with the next two books. This series is going to be something special. I can feel it. I am ACHING for book two NOW. Is it May yet?
