About this ebook

The stunning continuation in the bestselling Story of Us series from New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo. 

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?

I loved the second part to The Story of Us series. In The Way We Fall, you get to know the characters and their story. You become connected with them, you judge them, but like any of Cassia's books, she always throws you that curve ball. And those characters that you have come to know, and everything you thought you knew, goes right out the window.  This story continues with Rory making a decision that will have a big impact on the people she loves. The people she thought she knew and loved most broke her heart in The Way We Fall. I feel for Houston in this book. He made a lot of mistakes, but he was only doing what he thought was the right thing for everyone involved. He still loves Rory with all his heart, and in The Way We Break he will do anything to get her back.  Then we have Liam, who is there for Rory. He helps ease her pain. You will get to know a lot more about Liam in this book. One of my favorite characters in this series is Kenny, and he is back.  Once again, he will have you in stitches with laughter. He is the one person who Rory can lean on. He didn’t betray her and he always has her back. Even if he thinks Rory has made a mistake, he doesn’t hold back in letting

Another book by Cassia I fell in love with. Her characters are always so real. I love that they have more than one dimension. She manages to tackle some big topics with such grace. The journey is amazing as we continue on with Houston, Rory, Kenny, and Liam. Parts will leave you angry or laughing. Sometimes everything is not as it appears on the surface. Often we need to take big risks, like moving 600 miles to achieve our goals. Moving in with someone we hardly know. Sometimes we are surprised where the help is actually comes from when we learn the truth. Can't wait to see how their story ends in The Way We Rise
