In both of those sreies we have a poor highschool girl living (and having a relationship) with an older guy who also happens to be a member of said girl's school staff (in case of Faster Than a Kiss it's a teacher and in case of Dengeki Daisy it's a janitor). Accidently in both of those series the male lead used to be quite rebellious when he was younger. If you liked on of those two manga, than you really might want to check the other one too.
