    Infinite and Inevitable

    What an incredible ending to this gut-wrenching and emotional series! This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year and it did not disappoint! This is book 3 in the Something in the Way series and is not a stand alone. It should only be read after reading the prior 2 books, Something in the Way and Somebody Else's Sky. I apologize in advance for the vagueness of this review. I just want everyone to be able to experience all the emotions that this book elicits. Fans of this series already know that Jessica Hawkins does not pull any punches or shy away from the uncomfortable. Did I agree with everything that happened and the decisions our characters made? Definitely not. Sometimes I wanted to throw my kindle across the room and scream into my pillows. That's how incredible the writing is in this series. It gets you so invested and tangled with these characters that you can't help but have a visceral reaction. Readers are right there with the characters through the heartbreak, grief, joy, and love. We mourn alongside them for their losses and mistakes and we celebrate with them during their triumphs and victories. You will experience every possible emotion while reading this book (and series). There were times that I had to push my hand down on my chest to keep my heart from shattering, but others because I didn't think my heart could contain so much joy. Move the Stars answers many questions that have plagued readers from the start of this series. Hard truths will be revealed and long held secrets exposed. Through the good, the bad, and the ugly, one thing is certain - have those tissues ready! This is not an easy love story. It is a raw and brutal journey spanning many years that pushes forgiveness and love to their absolute limits. You do not want to miss this incredible series!

    Beyond AMAZING! More than I could've asked for

    Absolutely breathless! Left speechless. I'm soo in love! The road to this ending was definitely not all hearts & flowers. It was a rollercoaster of emotions that took me soo high only to make me feel soo low. My heart broke in soo many tiny little pieces I could've sworn it would never be whole again cause nothing could put it back together. I was impressed and soo happy with this book (the conclusion) was different than any other trilogy I've read before. The timeline of Manning & Lake's journey was the best. I won't say too much more cause I don't wanna spoil. It was perfect to me! Yes I got mad and cried and swooned and was so hot and everything else one can feel. It ended waay too soon even though I read it slow to savored it. lol

    5 Bear & Birdy Stars

    There's a Truck, there's a Lake and there's The Stars. And in it is an adorable young couple , in the Big Bear camp wishing and hoping for their Happily for Now . Their Ever-After improbable and seemingly impossible. description And from here starts the Pain in the Heart story. It pulsates with angst , chokehold emotions and soul crumbling tears . Jessica shows no mercy , takes no prisoners and prepare for cutting your heart out and putting it through the wringer , before you open the pages. None of us were guaranteed anything in this life— especially true happiness. And that is the underlying emotion of the entire series. A Half finished love that would have the power of a devastating storm , destroying 3 lives in their wake. In earlier books Lake and Manning meet and fall for each other, yet Manning struggles to be the adult and do the right thing. Here Lake is picking up the pieces of her life and heart , post Manning. She's in a tiny apartment with a broken heater , A broken lock and a broken heart with her friends who held together her sobbing heart and weeping soul. The story spanning three hefty books has many facets like a well cut diamond. It shall touch different people in different ways , yet the inherent beauty of pure virginal love and insecure heart will truly sit heavy on your chest . I've been so invested in Lake, Manning and Tiffany's lives , even though I'm not a young love fan. Gimme dark taboo any day , but I couldn't walk away from their ballad. And ballad it is , there's music and romance in Jessica's words, their resonance loud and strong , affecting you for days after you finish. Keep the box of Kleenex handy though , cause beneath all the feverish kisses and desperate love making is heartbreak and bad timing. There’d been so much heartbreak and only just enough love to keep me going. Sometimes just powerful love is not enough to keep the world going, and if it's not good enough, what good is it? Nobody could say we hadn’t tried. We’d been pushed, and we’d pushed back. We’d wanted love to be enough, but it wasn’t.He’d turned down real love because others would judge it. He refused to accept what he deserved unless it was bad . The characters are so brilliantly etched. They're not perfect humans, making innumerous mistakes along the way, some they learn from, some their insecurities let repeat. But thats what makes them so endearing, so real. You'll rub your chest where it'll hurt so bad, you'll forget to breathe, eyes will well up and overflow in contionous streams , yet won't wash away the pain. You won't walk away untarnished. If you believe in God Almighty, you'll summon him to have mercy on these people , and wish upon all the falling stars to let their love unite in perpetuity. Bear in mind - you couldn’t move the stars God still holds the pen to all our fates and Jessica holds Lake and Manning's . She keeps it very real, very fresh and very potent. The conclusion is so powerful and amazing , it couldn't have been anything else. I've lived in a time of Lake & Manning and I don't wanna come out of the pages. He may be Her universe, her sky, her stars. Her Ursa Major. But he's ours too ❤ description I'm guessing writing Must be taken a heavy toll on her too, reading sure did annihilate my heart 💔 As I closed the book , I'm thankful for meeting Jessica and her beautiful soul that created these extraordinary stories. What incredible talent she is. So , Purge and move on to create more immortal characters Jess and slay our hearts , because who needs a whole heart anyway !!

    Gripping, Emotional Series end!!! Amazing !

    This series has been one of the most emotionally gripping and yet rewarding of my life. Not to compare the styles or authors or books; but I can only liken it to how I was after reading Twilight. That series led me to this romance genre of books via fan fiction and opened up a whole new world for me. The Something in the Way series has brought me book friends and honest, open hilarious relationships with women that I will treasure for always. I was a fan of Jessica's prior to the SitW series, and will continue to be her fan as long as she writes for us. Move the Stars is the conclusion of the series, you MUST have read the other two books. I will have no spoilers in this review, because I want you to experience every emotion for the first time on your own. And trust me you will experience every emotion in MtS, that you have experienced in the other two books. Possibly even deeper because you know the end is coming. Jessica has made me scream in happiness, sob uncontrollably, put the book down and walk away, so ragey I couldn't speak and start all over again. These characters are flawed. Perfectly, accurately, truly flawed; there is not one I can point to and say well they were perfect. And why should you? I want stories to provoke emotion and thought and conversation. Jessica writes from her soul; it pours on to the pages and then seeps into your bones and only leaves you when you expel your next breath. I'm not going to sit here and say I loved all the characters every second of this conclusion, but I feel their journey and that to me is the true mark of a good character and exceptional writing. You will physically hurt for them and you will physically love for them. It's unavoidable. Even though I am legitimately devastated to see this series end, I'm so thankful for the lasting connections and emotions it has brought out in the readers and ME! I have NEVER, NEVER seen such passion brought forth from words on a page. I can't wait to see what Jessica has in store for us next. Side Note: I was the lucky recipient of an ARC copy of the paperback book at the 2017 Big Apple Author Event!! So I actually read this one in paperback, and it gave me a paper cut!! hahahahaha. I thought that was so fitting for the end of Manning and Lake's story. I literally bled for them.

    Fantastic Conclusion

    Move The Stars was a fantastic conclusion to one of the most heart-wrenching trilogies I've ever read. True to the first two books, Move the Stars gripped onto my soul and I simply could not put it down. My heart was pounding, and my stomach was literally in knots. The final part of the journey we have been following isn't an easy one, and the reader just feels so much, so strongly. The writing was fantastic, the pacing a bit jumpy, but its jumpy in a way that fits. Its the way it needed to be told. 100% a must read series.
