The Way We Break (The Story of Us #2) by Cassia Leo

Book Two in the USA Today bestselling Story of Us series.

Live the truth...

The truth about Hallie has torn Houston and Rory apart for a second time. Houston is finally unburdened of the secret his sister confided in him, but now he must deal with the aftermath.

He has vowed to set things right for Rory, and he's determined to get her back. But the destruction left in the wake of Hallie's letter is not the only obstacle he must face. Houston must find a way to win Rory back by showing her their story isn't over yet.

...or live the lie.

In her desperation to move past the anguish of Hallie's secret and Houston’s lies, Rory seeks solace in Liam. When Liam is transferred to another tech company in California, Rory jumps at his invitation to leave Portland, and her broken heart, behind. In California, Rory finds a friend who opens new doors for her in the literary world. But does this new friend have ulterior motives?


Not a standalone

"You still love me... Let me convince you this is not how our story ends.” 

I'm a little disappointed with this one. The Way We Fall was so amazing! Here... I just didn't feel the same desire and passion like the previous book.

Rory makes a hasty decision and moves to California with Liam. There were moments where I felt terrible for him because Rory couldn't open up to him. He had some moments where he really tried to make her comfortable. Then he turned a bit paranoid and crazy, but who could blame him when his girlfriend is screaming another guy's name when she touches herself.

I loved the way Houston tried to get Rory back. That was the best part of the story. Of course more issues pop up once they get together. Hopefully The Way We Rise will give me the same feelings as the first book.
