Overview

**This is a New Adult Contemporary Romance and is suitable for ages 17 and up, due to language and scenes of sensuality**

Katie Hallman is done with douchebags. Done with guys who treat her like crap and leave her broken. But then Stryker Grant is there anyway. With his numerous piercings and bleached hair, he’s the polar opposite of all of her past relationships, which makes him the perfect candidate.

At first, Katie just sees him as a physical escape from her previous rocky relationship, and Stryker doesn’t seem to mind just being a distraction from Katie’s problems. But soon he’s getting under her skin, peeling back layers she’d rather keep covered. She tries to make it clear that she doesn’t want a relationship, but keeps breaking her own rules.

Then a tragedy sends Katie into the only arms that are there to catch her, and she’ll realize that she needs him more than she ever thought possible. But is she ready to let herself trust another guy with her already-battered heart? Or will she push him away to protect herself from getting hurt again?

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    **This review may contain spoilers.**

    Chelsea Cameron's Faster We Burn is the sequel to Deeper We Fall. This is Katie and Stryker's story and begins with the end of Deeper We Fall from their perspective which I thought was a really great idea. Even though this story is about a different couple, I still recommend reading Deeper We Fall before you read Faster We Burn since Katie plays a pretty big part in the first story.

    I have to say I wasn't really excited to read this story after finishing Deeper We Fall. I really didn't like Katie much at all in the first book. However, I'm glad I went ahead and read it because Katie was redeemed a bit for me. She still got on my nerves in places, like when she treated Stryker like crap, but he allowed it, so what can you do? And it isn't like he didn't make his fair share of screw ups...

    I wouldn't really call this story a light read. I read it pretty quickly, but it wasn't all happy and fun in my opinion. But, I loved the way this group of friends pulls together to take care of each other. I love the scenes in the fancy restaurant and the dorm room when they are all together talking and laughing. I remember those times in college and really miss that connection.

    I enjoyed watching Katie and Stryker fall in love and not be sure how to define it or even know if they wanted to define it at times. I love the relationship between Stryker and Trish, too. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not, but I really enjoy the supporting characters almost more than the main story. I love Simon the most. He's just so fun and seems like he'd be great to hang out with.

    I recommend this book to all of you who liked Deeper We Fall. I don't think you will be disappointed with this second book. I truly hope we get a few more books out of this series!!!

    We start book 2 in the Fall and Rise series just before the end

    We start book 2 in the Fall and Rise series just before the end of the book 1, only now we are seeing Katie and Stryker's views.  It's nice that the author doesn't linger too long over the part of the story we already saw, but goes back just enough for us to get into these characters heads a little.  It's amazing how the situation looks a little different when we're shown a different person's perspective.




    I wasn't a big fan of Katie in book one - even after she got her head out of her butt.  She was a little to girlie girlie fru fru for my tastes - but in this volume we see a completely different side of her.  Is she still a bit of a girlie girl - yes - but with an additional layer of depth that makes her much more fun to read about.  We get to see a lot more about why she is who she is (or thinks she is).




    I loved Stryker in book one, and I still like him a lot in book two, but he has a few extremely jerky moments that I'm not sure I would have been able to forgive him for.  In a strange way they are perfect for each other.  




    There was just a little too much tragedy in this one for me to give it 5 stars.  I felt a little beaten over the head by some of the points that were trying to be made, and there were times it seemed bad things were happening just to fill pages.  Still, it was a great book overall that I would definitely read again.

    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 :)

    Good story

    I would have given this book 4 stars but the ending for me was weird, it just stopped. I didn't care for that but with that being said I did enjoy the rest of the book.

    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.
