Faded picks up right where Jaded left off. Scarlett has left her hideaway in Florida and has discovered she will never have a "normal" life. She is heartbroken over leaving, but has convinced herself that she doesn't want her fame to ruin the ones she loves the most. Scarlett is about to make some big changes in her life and she is going to need the support of the ones she loves.

Scarlett is convinced to return to Hope, Florida when she realizes that she cannot live without the ones she left behind. She has also made a big decision to start making her own music, and not the bubblegum pop her record company has been forcing her to do. Which will require her to fire her own father as her manager. On top of that her best friend and fellow rock star, Alec Torch, has convinced her to record a documentary and she has cameras literally everywhere!! How does a 19 year old juggle high school, a massive blow up with both of her parents, venturing out on her own in her music career, and falling in love??

I give Faded 5 stars on the knock my socks off scale. I thought that Mercy Amare did a fantabulous job at picking up where book 1 left off and adding so many events without rushing through the story. I felt my connection to the characters deepen and fell even more in love with Scarlett and Stephan, but also the entire cast... minus Mona. LOL

Faded starts off right where Jaded left us. I really liked that, as the ending left me with lots of questions.

Scarlet leaves Florida believing it is best for her friends. She thinks it’s not fair to them to have their privacy invaded because of her fame.

She can’t stay away though. She needs them and misses them. Especially Stephan. So she returns.

Faded reveals answers to many questions from Jaded. Scarlett is maturing, becoming a stronger, emotionally grounded young woman, despite her notoriety and unusual younger years.

The secondary characters from Jaded begin to come into their own with this second book, and are an integral part of this series now.

It’s hard to review a second book without spoilers, so I’ll just that Faded is every bit as good as Jaded, if not better, since we are led further into Scarlett’s and her friends relationships and stories.

I’ll warn ya. The ending is a wowser. Just sayin. You’ll definitely be reading the third book, Hated, when it’s released.

Talking to the author about Faded, right after I finished Jaded, I was told that Faded did not leave the reader hanging as bad as Jaded did to me. I didn’t believe her. I was like, ‘I can't wait for the next one to find out what happens! There is too much suspense!’ When I got to the end, I did not realize it and I was like WTF?!?!?!?! Nononononono!
In this one, I loved the character Alec. He is in Faded way more than he is in Jaded. He is too funny. I was literally laughing out loud when Scarlett would get mad at him because off something he did that she absolutely would have killed him for.

Faded picks up exactly one week after Jaded ends.. Not that anything happened in the missing week. Scarlett quickly runs through the events that had her leave Hope and return to L.A but she's miserable there. Her miseray doesn't last long though and it's not long before the quirky misunderstood rock star is right back to her old self.
The copy of Faded I have is an unedited, uncorrected ARC and I have to admit that I'm quite impressed with the fact that while obviously it needs a little tweaking to be perfect, there are not that many errors in it at all. Cudos for Mercy!
It took me much less time to read this one than it did Jaded and I'm almost positive that any fan will fly through this book too and then silently swear when they reach the end...well, At least that's what I did!
Faded definitely flows in sync with Jaded, unlike most series where the reader watches the writing style either get better (however in most cases the other books are nowhere near as good as the first) that isn't a worry with The Rock Star Trilogy. The writing style is consistant and the reader rest assured that they can finished Jaded and pick up Faded without a worry that Scarlett's thoughts won't seem right anymore.
There is on hell of a surprise at the end of this one that will absolutely blog the reader's mind but it's worth it and it totally keeps the reader craving the final installment.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws
