Review & Release Blitz for Somebody Else's Sky by Jessica Hawkins
REVIEW by Heather
hangover (n): something remaining behind from a former period or state of affairs.
It's day two. The hangover is still hanging on. The moon and the stars were different last night. Love consumed me. From the pages of Somebody Else's Sky. Love. Fiery, all consuming love. Beauty. Pain. Destruction. Happiness. Broken.
Manning and Lake. They are all of this and so much more. From Something in the Way to Somebody Else's Sky... my heart beats differently. I wonder if a love like theirs really exists. The words folded between the pages of this book aren't just words. They're life breathing, soul touching, heart wrenching. They teach us to reach for the moon and stars.
"My love for him spanned the ocean, the sky over our heads, an infinite universe of stars." <--- This. This is L.O.V.E.
First Question? Why Can't I give this book 10 Stars.... This Series is Everything....Manning is becoming my favorite character.
In Somebody Else's Sky you find Manning paying the ultimate price to protect the girl he loves... He knows he can & will never be with Lake. Manning feels that he has changed beyond repair, he is no good for Lake, and can snap at any moment. His growing relationship with Tiffany while still away from her, is growing stronger. When he finally gets his freedom; Tiffany offers him what he wants, a home & family. Even at the price of having to be close to Lake. Manning will do anything to not become the one man he hates and he is determined to break the chains of his family's past.
Lake feels as though they are both biding their time till she turns eighteen , that they are destined to be together. She knows Manning loves her; and he does. She doesn't know the darkness inside him. When he chooses Tiffany & walks away from her; what will the crushed girl choose. Herself or a path that keeps her waiting.
Speechless is what I am right now. Truly speechless as I finished reading Somebody Else's Sky. I was angry, sad, happy, excited and speechless. The selflessness love that Lake has for Manning is heartbreaking.
Manning thinks he is doing right by everyone involved but is he really? Answers are given but more questions arise as we wait to see what happens next.
This book has seriously left me with a book hangover and I'm not sure when it will go away. I will wait patiently for the last book to see if Lake and Manning will get their happily ever after. This series will make my top reads for 2017.
