How to decrease the whitespace between two blocks of text

Given 2 text blocks like this

<p>First text block<br>
second line</p>
<p>Second text block<br>
second line</p>

What CSS would result in the text blocks separated by less than the default paragraph spacing without changing the line-height inside the text blocks?

I've tried using styled <hr>, which works but only to increase the spacing. I've also experimented with fractional line heights. To avoid changing the interior line-heights I've tried enclosing the first word of the second block in span tags.

I'm hoping someone has a working solution.
