Product description

Product Description

The highly anticipated conclusion to the USA Today bestselling Story of Us series.

With Liam’s fate no longer in the balance, Rory and Houston are poised on the precipice of a life-altering decision. When Rory’s father arrives in California to comfort Rory and make amends, Houston finds the decision becomes much easier to make.

When Houston suggests they take a break Rory thinks he must be joking. But he’s not. And his timing couldn’t be worse.

With Houston and Rory vowing to keep their new friendship strictly outside of the bedroom, their friends and family seize the opportunity to draw out the torture and surprises. Ensuring that Houston and Rory’s story has an ending they’ll never forget.

Author's Note: This is the final book in the series. No more cliffhangers. This is essentially two books in one: the final installment in the series and a novella-length epilogue. Also note, this series is not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to strong language, violence, sexual content, and adult situations.

“Real life is messy. People hurt each other, even when they love each other. All you can do is deal with it.”

*cue standing ovation*

WOW! Just wow!!! Cassia, I’m in awe! The Way We Rise (Book #3 of The Story of Us series) is the perfect conclusion to such a phenomenal trilogy! What a beautiful ending with an epic, mother of all epilogues! You never cease to amaze me time after time!

Secrets will be revealed and then some! Can Rory and Houston’s relationship handle the truth and its repercussions? This heartfelt and emotional read is about impermanence, acceptance, friendship, hope, love and happy beginnings. I cried, laughed, swooned, cried even more and my heart skipped a beat at a particular scene which nearly killed me! (Side note: Cassia, how could you?! Some of us have weak hearts! LOL!)

“You see, in real life, there are no happy endings, because real life, real love, has no ending.”

Fret not! We will find out what happens to all of our favorite characters (and Tessa…) that we have grown so attached to over the last two books. That’s the magic of Cassia’s masterful storytelling — she keeps it real by creating well-developed characters, realistic plots, and most importantly, the life lessons imparted will resonate with every reader. She is truly an amazing author and I love this book and series tremendously!

The Story of Us series will stay with me for a very long time to come and I’ll always hold these quotes close to my heart.

“You can’t erase love.”

“No friendship, no love.”

Thank you, Cassia, for yet another unforgettable love story! ♥

What a tragic, heartbreaking, yet beautiful tale this author has written. Houston and Rory have survived some pretty horrific situations, and their love was tested at every turn, but they came out of it stronger, more in love, with ability to climb every mountain and conquer their obstacles together. I was worried that they would never get that seemingly illusive HEA, but thankfully they realised that love is what heals, and that love they have together, is unlike anything they could experience without the other. This story moved me significantly. I felt like I had gone through the wringer with them, such was the way the author managed to totally capture her audience, creating this image of being there and feeling every high, low, tragedy, success, right along with Houston and Rory. Houston made me laugh and I could so vividly picture his wickedly naughty face when he added innuendo to a lot of what Rory said to him. Thank goodness they braved up and decided that they were not going to continue their journey to HEA without the other. I will remember this book for a time, as that is the profound affect it has had on me, and my heart is full with all these emotions that I fear I am a blubbering mess, and not making any sense at all. Forgive me, but that is how this book has left me feeling . Love really does make the world look like a brighter, more colourful place, and this author penned it perfectly. I am breathless and in awe of Cassia Leo's talent. She has given me something that is rare for me and simply stunning. She has left me totally speechless.

This was the perfect ending to the series, as usual Cassia has written an amazing story that wraps up all loose ends and ties it all together in a nice neat bow, even throwing in a few heart stopping moments just to make sure you are still paying attention.
As per my review from the first book, Hallie is still my favourite and this book only made me love her even more.
Rory and Houston, not only grow as a couple but individually they become better people and together they can conquer anything
I cannot wait to see what Cassia releases next
