I was a thief.
The invisible girl only he could see.
The woman who wanted to be more.
He was the mark.
The extraordinary cowboy who stole my sixteen-year-old heart.
The damaged man who still owned it, even four years later.
The Line was where we began.
Where fates collided.
Where truths derailed.
The place where our love story ends.

This is my first book by this author and certainly not my last. Her words grabbed me from the first page. Her characters bewitched me. I needed to read more. I wanted to know their story. And I am so glad I did.
Everly Woods and Cole Briggs met one night. A night where just for a minute, Everly didn’t seem invisible. Someone saw her. A night where Cole saw a broken girl and had no idea that just one small kind action would change everything. Fast forward four years and fate brings them together again. Except that their circumstances are different. A little less broken, Everly remembers Cole and the night that changed the trajectory of her life. And while the drop dead gorgeous cowboy looks all put together, he has a past. One that unravels as we go deeper into their story.
Everly and Cole are a testament to the talent of this author. Compelling and complex, they simply astounded me with their strength. Powerful and addicting, this story had a perfect balance of mystery that kept me turning the pages. I cannot tell you their story for this is one you live in rather than read. The connection between them is overwhelming. Palpable. There is an authenticity about Cole and Everly that I cannot put into words. This is to be more than read, this is a story to experience.
The writing was flawless as the author seamlessly moved the reader though past and present scenes. This is a talent and not many can effortlessly pull this off. She has this incomparable way of narrating a story. Placing you with her characters until you have no choice but to be completely engrossed in their story. Beautifully written and purposefully executed, this is a book I highly recommend.
The Line was a deep burning romance that rendered me speechless. Compelling and poignant, I was simply blown away by the sheer beauty in this story. The bravery of these characters and their human spirit was riveting as it was inspirational. It was a story that reminds us that even at our deepest and darkest moments, we are all worthy of love .

Title: Somebody Else's Sky
Series: Something in the Way #2
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017
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.
Book two in the Something in the Way series, an epic, 3-book saga of forbidden love...
"Her innocence and simplicity defied the chaos in my head"
WORST-BEST book hangover EVER.
That was so cruel. Or was it? Maybe it was. I don't know!!! When I first finished the story, I was mad, really mad like super-ragey-angry-mad, I was basically all of the emoji faces all at once, especially the one with snot fuming out of its nose. Because that was me. I was crying, pacing, yelling and probably looking like a damn fool. Thank god I don't have a nanny cam because that wouldn't be pretty to watch. You know it's a great book when you need a support group full of like-minded individuals just to help you through the next five months. After I let all my emotions sink in, like REALLY sink in, I'm still an emotional wreck-4 days later! Between all the different conspiracy theories and scenarios running through my head, I'm an absolute mess and I couldn't be happier about it because I have faith in the process, and If book one didn't cement Jessica Hawkins in my heart, this sure as hell did. So thank you Jessica, for making me crazy and happy and miserable and ALL THE THINGS. Every book should fuel this kind of fire in its readers. EVERY. BOOK.
"I didn’t see these other girls and feel stirred the way I did for Lake, but at that moment, I wished it was anyone but her. I wished I’d never fucking met her. I just didn’t wish it enough to walk away for good."
As I let the story settle in a little more I realized that I was probably feeling all of the emotions that this author wanted me to feel. I'm pretty sure this is the effect that every author wants to have on his or her readers. However, not every author can achieve that, and Jessica did, TENFOLD. I really feel like I read a book that captured the essence of young love and the forbidden fantasy of what we can't have. I remember young love well, it's tragic and heart-wrenching and it's littered with vividly beautiful moments that are unforgettable. And that's a perfect way to describe this book. Will I die waiting for book 3? Not technically I hope, but yes, this will be a torturous 5 months because I have been profoundly moved by this series.
“You think I don’t know how you feel? You think I don’t carry the burden of our love on my shoulders just to keep it from crashing down onto you?”
We start this story right where the first book left off, and we get Manning's point of you for a lot of the book, which is as scary as it is nice because there's no way in hell that I want his mind on Tiffany! And let me tell you, there's a lot of Tiffany. SO. MUCH. TIFFANY. I'm not going in to the what's and why's of how I feel about Tiffany, or what happened because one, I don't want to spoil anything. And two, I don't really want to spend my time talking about that wench.
"She would be mad, but she couldn’t deny the unshakeable truth about Manning and me—this story was ours."
There's not actually much I can talk about without spoiling so I'll just continue with how I feel. I'm mad, I'm so mad, but I'm also extremely hopeful. I swear this book made me bi-polar, like why is this happening!?! All I feel is grief and anxiousness and pain and it hurts. If you want to read a book that will hold your attention and make you breathless and shatter you in complicated young-love glory than READ THIS BOOK.
“Even if all that’s true, you’re forgetting one thing. You can love me more than anyone else could. How can you ignore that?”
Manning is trying to make the right decision with his life by doing right by both Lake and Tiffany. And I firmly believe that everything he does is out of careful consideration and adoration for Lake, but then we have Tiffany and he obviously has adoration for her as well. I understand Lake, but why Tiffany!? Ugggh just talking about her makes me itchy and uncomfortable. PLUS, the way Tiffany treats Lake is downright wrong. Like dude, that's your little sister, you're supposed to protect her and love her and pick her up when she's down, not kick her when she's down!
There are very few books that I can say all of these things about and still give it a 5 star review. Like I've never been so mad reading a book but I still freaking loved it!!! How does that even happen?! Jessica Hawkins is a sorceress I know it. It's as if she left a piece of her soul in different parts of this book for each reader to take and keep with them, like a literary souvenir so we can never forget the magic of this story and discover the profound enormity of love within its pages. Because that's what the underlying message is here, in my opinion. That love is hard and angry and all-consuming and unpredictable. And I can't wait to read book 3 to see where all of that love goes. Hands down, this is my favorite series this year.

Shakespeare believed there was always humor in tragedy and tragedy in humor.
My life proved his theory as fact.
At eighteen I was a single parent moving to this small town to be with the man I loved. The one who was supposed to love and cherish me in return.
Finding out he had a wife was tragic.
Remaining in love with him in spite of her was more tragic.
My mom and best friend setting me up on a long string of blind dates was an ongoing tragedy.
Nine years later, Iâve learned to see the humor in most situations.
My mom and best friend setting me up on disastrous blind dates.
My sonâs jokes.
The fire alarm going off each time I cook.
My constant bright spot always adding to the humor was my son, Hayden. But when Hayden had a life-threatening allergic reaction, the man who came to help my little boy became my own savior. His laugh, his smile, and the way his eyes lit up when he spoke to my son made him a beacon of light in both our lives.
But I wasnât the only one who noticed him.
When I began having feelings for the man my best and only friend had fallen for, I knew following my heart would once again lead to a fresh round of heartbreak.
Love led me to this town.
Lies kept me there.
Would history repeat itself?
Or had life just thrown me another Curveball?

âI donât watch TV at nightâ¦â Her voice drifts off, and I know itâs because she realizes Iâm going to ask why.
And I do.
âYou're going to laugh.â
âIt's because I can't hear things.â
âWhat kinds of things are you trying to hear?â
âI don't know. Strange noises and thingsâ¦â
âDo I need to spell it out for you?â Sheâs trying to sound annoyed, but I can hear the smile in her voice.
âApparently, because I have no idea what you're talking about. What kinds of strange noises are you going to hear? I usually turn my TV up to block out all the strange sounds like the neighborâs kids and the lady behind me that sounds like Fran fucking Drescher.â
âYou know who Fran Drescher is?â
âMy mother was a big fan of that stupid show she was in. Stop changing the subject. What are you listening for? Hayden wonât sneak out.â
âWhat if someone breaks in?â
âYou're not serious.â
âOf course I'm serious!â
âWhat do you do all night?â I ask.
âWork,â she admits. âWell, usually I clean, and then I work.â
âIâm coming over.â
The panic in her voice doesnât make her sound upset about the idea, but afraid.
Is it because she likes me?
âWhy not?â I ask.
âItâs like nine o'clock.â
âAre you about to turn orange and sprout a stem?â
âThat and I'm not wearing a bra, if you must know.â
âSo put it back on.â
âYou don't understand. That's like saying put your jeans back on.â
âI am in jeans,â I lie just to get a reaction out of her.
âWhat is wrong with you?â she cries.
âWhat's wrong with jeans?â
âThey're stiff and uncomfortable. Wearing jeans all day is basically equivalent to walking on sandpaper. But at least you guys have pockets that will actually hold something larger than a thimble and donât ride up your ass.â
âIf your bra is riding up your ass, we have bigger fish to fry than being afraid of the boogey man.â

When Life Happened, an all-new standalone romance from
“Can one of these five rockstars fill the hole in my heart? Or will I stay broken forever?”
Young, dumb, and broke.
That’s what started everything. With five dollars in her pocket, and everything she owns stuffed in the back of her car, Lilith Goode’s life is over. Done. Destroyed.
Ten words. One text. That’s what it took to change the whole world.
A crumpled concert ticket. A chance encounter. That’s what it takes to start all over again.
Five rockstars. One girl. Six dark hearts, six withered souls.
But can one broken person really put another back together again?
"This book has one girl and five bad boy rockstars. She owns them all—heart, body and soul. Don't read it unless you like to ugly cry…and also unless you like threesomes, foursomes…and moresomes."
This ^^^ is the warning at the beginning of the book, and that basically sums it up. Alone, broke and desperate. Lilith Goode is just trying to find a way to get to New York, when she stumbles across the path of a hot rocker guy who generously helps her out and confuses her with some sort of back stage pass winner to his show. The sexy stranger is mysterious and she has no clue what's going on, but with her situation she doesn't really have room to be choosey, so she goes along with it. I haven't read a lot in this genre but I read the blurb and was very intrigued so I thought it might be something that I would give a try. Pretty early on I realized that it wasn't really for me. However, I do know a ton of people who would love to read this book just because the warning said threesomes, foursomes & moresomes.
I knew from the warning that reading this book (or I assumed) there would be lots of sex, and there is. And it happens quickly with multiple partners, so if that's not your thing, heed the warning and move along because this book isn't for you. This girl has sex with three of the guys on the same night. The FIRST night. But I'm not going to slut shame her because if a guy can do it than so can she, in my head I was giving her a fictional high five and channeling Beyoncé. Get. Yours.
Pretty quickly we get to meet the male characters, Paxton, Ransom, Copeland, Muse & Michael. The story is told in first person with alternating POV's of all the characters, including each one of the five guys and Lilith, so you really get a feeling of what's going on in each of their heads and a thorough understanding why they make the choices they do.
I love the idea of a young woman finding her own independence while simultaneously being codependent on others. Not codependent in the sense where she's needy or she's beneath them, but that they're finding themselves within each other and growing stronger as individuals because of one another. Don't get me wrong, Lilith wasn't without flaw, she certainly had her whiney moments which were annoying, but her dad had just died and everyone mourns differently. Going on a road trip with a bunch of hot rockers and finding love and sensuality within that kind of atmosphere is unheard of, which pretty much makes this the ultimate fantasy. I thought I would really enjoy it l, and it's not that I didn't enjoy it because I must say that the writing in itself was fantastic. I want to make that clear, it was clever and smooth and it wasn't only there as a backdrop to the sex. You can tell that the author took her time in crafting a story that was both meaningful and steamy.
In the end, even though this book isn't something that I would normally read. I found it very entertaining and I appreciate the deeper meaning that I believe the author was trying to convey.
It was good, and I'll definitely recommend it to my friends who are into ménage and reverse harem books.
