    Great Book Again!! Faster We Burn is the second book in the Ri

    Great Book Again!!

    Faster We Burn is the second book in the Rise and Fall Series (the first being Deeper We Fall) and is Katie and Stryker's story, also it's told in both of their POV's.
    It brought all the characters back from Deeper We Fall, YAY!! and I have really enjoyed reading about every character so far in this series.
    We first met Stryker and Katie in Deeper We Fall. Katie is Lottie's roommate at college and Stryker is Zan's best friend.
    Katie is living the college life. She has it all, going to parties, good looks, and a great boyfriend, Zack. but on the inside she is shutting down because her relationship with Zack is anything but great. He abuses and controls her and finally she has had enough and breaks up with him. She swears off guys and decides she will do the one night stand thing and not get emotionally attached. Then she meets Stryker and her world changes.
    Stryker is labeled a bad guy, He has tattoos, piercings and he is a musician. There is something about Katie that he just can't let go of. When she suggests they sleep together with no strings attached he agrees. As they get closer to one another something else is happening to them and they are trying to fight it. Stryker is not sure if he can love Katie the way she deserves. Maybe they're better off as friends? Read this awesome book and find out :)

    While Faster We Burn is the second book in the Rise and Fall ser

    While Faster We Burn is the second book in the Rise and Fall series, it’s not entirely necessary to read Deeper We Fall to understand what’s going on. It’s more satisfying for the reader to know the dynamics of the group of characters beforehand, especially since Lottie and Zan are in Faster We Burn too, but it’s not a necessity to follow Katie and Stryker’s story.

    Faster We Burn is told by the POV of both Katie and Stryker. Their thoughts really complement each other’s. The POVs don’t just switch off randomly, like I’ve seen in some other books. The POV switches when it’s beneficial to get in the other person’s head. Also, both Katie and Stryker have a clear voice, and it’s easy to tell the difference between them. You can tell that they’re completely different people, but that’s what makes them so perfect together.

    Really, no matter whose head you’re in, you can’t help but love Katie and Stryker. Their personalities jump right off the page, and they both seem so real. They can trade insults and they can have meaningful conversations, but you know they’re both terrified of admitting to themselves what they feel, and that makes them feel even more real.

    I really didn’t think I could like another book by Chelsea M. Cameron more than My Favorite Mistake, but Faster We Burn tops even that. I was so impressed I wish I could give it more than 5 stars.

    I highly recommend Faster We Burn.
