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...

As adults, our vision expands and we start seeing larger pictures. On top of younger ones' heads.
How jessica kneels down to a teenage level and matches their emotions and views, is beyond me. She goes back to simpler black & white world of teenagers , Where everything is just wants and needs and got-to-haves. Just love matters and rest of the unnecessary stuff like money, career, parole officers, credit, accountability,college, don't matter !
"What was more important than this fiery, all-consuming love I felt for him? The answer was Nothing !"
*sigh* if only the world was fueled by love .....and only pure love..
Manning has been dreaming of freedom when he's in prison . His life is already destroyed. The stamp of Felon big and bright on his forehead.
Tiffany shows lot of mettle. Rises up to the occassions in her straightforward , cut-to-the-chase attitude, many a times. I'm trying to figure out her motives. The jury is still out......
Lake . The tragic heroine .her heart breaks multiple times. Soundlessly . Wordlessly. But it hurts just the same, if not more.
"I’m all . . . wrong . . . without you."
It makes Manning's job much harder . He's the soul of the story, holding everybody together. He knows his life is worthless and his dreams of a decent future shattered. At least he can help others
"I wanted people to look back one day and remember how I’d helped. How I’d put aside my own destructive wants to make sure others could soar."
The book is full of love and angst . Your heart will break with Lake, Tiffany and Manning.
Corbin was a sweet reprieve. I so felt for him
The most interesting character was Charles Kaplan. He saw what most didn't , or pretended not to. And he finds a solution where everybody's a winner......sort of
fantastic story. Gave me so many feels and made my heart sob.
