Somebody Else’s Sky by Jessica Hawkins 

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: 

Somebody Else’s Sky is Jessica Hawkins second book to (Something in The Way), where the story of Lake, Manning and Tiffany continue. Complicated is not how or what I’d describe this forbidden romance that appears to be unraveling at the seams. Emotionally charged? For sure, it wouldn’t be a Jessica Hawkins book if you didn’t feel as if your heart was ripped out from its chest cavity, trampled on, but with a little love and tenderness to be placed back in its chamber beating a new force of life. 

There are few books or story lines that has moved me and left me utterly paralyzed, completely undone and Somebody Else’s Sky undoubtedly does. Jessica burst in with guns blazing and ready to tear into our hearts which left me thoughtless, speechless and a whole lot of WTF!. Jessica aimed for the stars in Somebody Else’s Sky, truly riveting, absolutely incredible a undeniable 5 stars. One thing I know is that my mind and heart may not be fully equipped to handle book 3 but I’m always up for the challenge.
