Something in the Way Book 2

4 Stars


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.


~ My Thoughts ~


Nothing could of prepared me for Somebody Else’s Sky.

The heartbreak.
The pain.
The torment.
The feeling of overwhelming helplessness.

I was consumed.
I was shocked.
I shattered.

The past is brought to light and I was in complete disbelief.

The second book in this series was a surprise. The twists and turns were endless. The realization of feelings and emotions were written with tragic beauty. The self-hatred. The self-loathing. The memories roar to life and you can feel their destruction. The fear and resentment resonated with me on such a deep and profound level. The realizations were surprising. The entire story line isn’t one I could predict.

I loved how with each turn of the page I could feel the growth of the characters. I hated how with each turn of the page I slowly lost hope that what I hoped would happen wouldn’t. I found myself so immersed in the story line everything and everyone around ceased to exist.

The second book in this series goes deeper in every sense. 

What I never expected and I’ll be honest shocked the hell out of me was the ending of book two and the beginning of book three. Simply put …. they were both fantastic!
