Blog Tour & Giveaway: You and Everything After (Falling #2) by Ginger Scott

You and Everything After (Falling #2)
by Ginger Scott.
Audience/Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Publication: December 5th 2014.
I’m that teenaged girl who has MS. You haven’t met me, but you’ve seen me around. You probably know my sister. We’re twins, and she’s the pretty one. Maybe you’ve heard about my reputation, how much I like to hook up at parties—how easy it is to get me in bed, get what you want, and forget about me after.

Forget what you think you know. I’m leaving that girl behind.

College is all about new beginnings. So from now on—I’m just Cass. And the rest…it isn’t written yet. And no one else gets to write my story for me.


“Tyson Preeter doesn’t do can’t.”

That’s exactly what I want people to think when they see me. I am strong, invincible, confident, intelligent—arrogant. I’m the man who always finds a way around, over and through—until there’s nothing left. Since losing my ability to walk six years ago, I’ve relearned life. I don’t need sympathy. I don’t want charity. And I don’t do love.

It’s better this way, saves my disappointments for me, and me alone, and it saves my strength for everything I want.

But Cass Owens is about to wreck everything. She’s about to steal all of my strength away from me, because she needs it more. She’s about to break all of my rules, and break down all of my walls. She’s about to own me…completely.

And I’m about to let her.

* This is the second book in the Falling Series, and it is scheduled to release Dec. 5. Book 1, This Is Falling, is out now. Each book can be read as a standalone and will focus on a different couple.

Reviewed by Kelly
This book is unique in that the author tackles not just the typical broken emotional person but the actual physical scars that limit what a person can do. Cass has MS. We learn her limits and what she can do to push her physical limits. Ty had an accident 6 years ago that put him in a wheelchair. Both could be depressed and self wallow in pity. But they don’t and together they push harder.

The other thing I liked was that these characters weren’t like the normal new adult book. They talked to each other and apologized when appropriate instead of keeping it to themselves because they were offended or wasn’t sure about how the other felt. In other words, they were more mature. Maybe their physical limits helped them to grow up faster, I don’t know, but I really liked that about them.

Ty was a player; Wham bam thank you mam, and I am out of here kind of guy. He didn’t want to see pity He didn’t want anyone to have to take care of him. His upper body is built, he works it hard. I always kind of wondered about guys in wheelchairs and sex. When I used to do med-surg nursing before labor and delivery, the guys I took care of couldn’t pee without having to use a catheter to get it out and I never asked them about intimate moments. Still, when Ty and Cass had sex, I still had to picture it in my head if that was possible (their moves and stuff). My medical background forced me to do it. Hehe!

Cass has MS. She has had it since being a teenager. She knows she probably shouldn’t try out for the soccer team in college. But she wants it! Ty is a trainer and he helps her train to do it. They are the perfect match. Cass has a reputation that isn’t good since high school. As time goes on in the book, we learn more and more about it. I really liked how that played out in the book. Nope, I am not telling you anymore about that. You have to read it yourself.

Their families are totally different. I liked watching those dynamics in their families. Each family taking a different stance on disabilities.

Anyway, if you like family saga’s, family issues, twins, sports, disabilities, medical issues, finding love that is definitely not shallow, culture icons, the word “babe” or “baby”, then this story might be for you.
