Title: Something in the Way
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2017


It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents’ house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. Yet we saw something in each other that would link us in ways that couldn’t be matter how hard we tried.

I loved Manning before I knew the meaning of the word. I was too young, he said. I would wait. 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. But I’d learn that life isn’t always fair. That no matter how much you achieve, none of it matters if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn’t matter. My older sister saw him next.

Amazing! So many damn feels with this book I don't even know where to begin. I'm normally not a fan of love triangles, even less so when two of the three people involved are related, but somehow it just works with this book. Not everyone will like this book; some people will be turned off because of the triangle. Your boundaries will be tested with this story. Early on I knew who I'd be cheering for. There were times I got angry with events in this book. There were times my heart hurt with events in this story. There were times I wanted to throw my e-reader (like when I got to the end). Do I agree with how this story is playing out so far? No, simply because I'm not a fan of triangles. But does it work for this book? Absolutely 100% yes. Am I anticipating the next part of the series? HELL. YES. Would I recommend this series? HELL. YES.
