Summary

The final book in the Something in the Way series, and a USA Today best seller.

Manning and I have what happily ever after is made of....

A home he built us on the unshakable foundation we fought for.

A life of laughter carved out of heartache and betrayal.

A love story to stand the test of time.

But between a trust that can’t be broken, joy that can’t be bridled, and passion that would scorch the sun, the empty spaces are becoming more and more difficult to ignore....

Fears that keep Manning up at night as he slips from our bed.

Our complicated relationship with a man he respects, and one I don't know how to forgive.

And a sprawling, beautiful home with one small room I'm afraid I'll never be able to fill.

Manning and I have what happily ever after is made of....

But I'll beg the heavens for just one thing more.

A brilliant ending to a brilliant series!

Lake + Manning is the last book in the Something In The Way series by Jessica Hawkins and it's a brilliant ending to what has been a brilliant series. Andi Arndt was an amazing narrator. I absolutely recommend it!

Loved the series.

Beautifully written by Jessica Hawkins. Character depth and plot was fantastic. I have only written a few reviews. But for this series I had to. Narrators are beyond words and together they make the story come alive. I felt as if I was watching a movie while I was driving to work.

Something missing

I loved the series, I just wish the final book had Manning’s voice and point of view as well. I felt like that was really missing, and took away from some of the emotion .

Great love story

I loved this entire series. The only thing I felt was missing in the last book of the series was Manning’s point of view. I loved how the other books provided both Lake and Manning’s point of view. Would have loved to heard his also.

Great Conclusion!

This is the fourth and last book in the Something in the Way Series. This is a great conclusion to Manning and Lake's forbidden story. This is a great series, filled drama, angst, and twists and turns. Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber did a fantastic job with the narration.

Perfect Ending to a wonderful Series

I have listened to this four book series a total of 3 times. It is the most romantic series, and my absolute favorite! I really didn’t want it to end!! It’s so wonderful except for the constant use of the F word. Some of the sex scenes are also extremely graphic. I am someone who loves romantic books, but to me constantly using the F word is not as romantic as making love. Other than that, I loved the characters of Lake and Manning, and the narration by Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber is exceptionally great.

Their story continues

I loved this continuation of Lake and Manning. We can see how they adjust to life together and what the universe has thrown in front of them again. But in this one, they are fully committed to each other and nothing will separate them again. Maybe.

Amazing series!!

Loved this whole series. The love story took me back to when I met my husband when I was 17 and he was older. Thankfully we didn’t have any obstacles in our way. Jessica Hawkins created such beautiful words and I was sucked in from the first words. Loved the audible for all the books and really brought the characters to life even more.

Spectacular ending to an Epic Love Story!

This is what the HEA looks like after Lake and Manning moved the stars to finally be together! I wasn't sure Ms. Hawkins could add more to their story and do them justice without minimizing the significance of their hard fought union or their connection and spark. Oh why did I question where she would take me, because I have learned that Ms. Hawkins never disappoints! I absolutely loved the direction she took us! It was so compelling, passionate, emotional, and honest. It made me love Lake & Manning even more for their strength, love and devotion. They support one another, challenge each other and have fun together. Their passion and chemistry only gets more explosive. This story was about life and the twists and turns it throws at you but can rise above together. The epilogue was everything I wanted for these star crossed lovers and more!
Andi Arndt continues to narrate this breathtaking, forbidden romance. She has developed and expressed these characters and their struggles so intimately, and made me care for them even more.
This is truly a spectacular ending to an epic love story that you will listen to again and again!

Phenomenal

This is about as epic as it comes. I've been along for the ride with Manning and Lake and have watched grow and conquer things put before them. I can't believe that the end is here. This is a MUST read series. Ten awesome stars!!!
