***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
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.
Days after finishing You and Everything After, I’m still pondering the emotions this book brought out. I don’t generally cry while reading, however, this book got me misty-eyed a few times, and it made me smile quite often. You and Everything After is the second book in Ginger Scott’s Falling series. Just like the first book (This is Falling), You and Everything After can be read as a stand alone novel. there is no cliff hanger, but there is the promise of more to come.
Although it is not necessary to read This is Falling to enjoy You and Everything After, I found the book even more enjoyable having read the first book in the series. The books follow parallel timelines but explore different characters. It was interesting to experience some of the same events through the eyes of a different character. Something as simple as a scene where roommates are getting ready for dates had so much more power when told from a different character’s point of view.
In You and Everything After, Ms. Scott beautifully shows her readers the strong yet vulnerable Tyson Preeter and Cassidy Owens. Tyson, who is known as Ty to friends and family, is outwardly strong and lighthearted. he has a reputation as a love-them-and-leave-them guy. Class Owens is using her start of college to start again as someone new. She is happy, healthy, independent and self-assured. Their budding friendship and support lead Cass and Ty to become one another’s confidante. Through their supportive and nurturing friendship, readers learn of past pain, loss, anguish and struggles that are still being battled inside each of the main characters. The tenderness they show each other when inner demons are revealed is moving. The raw honesty in flaying themselves open and making themselves vulnerable left me in awe of the characters and simultaneously unsettled.
Ms. Scott has perfectly portrayed the wide range of emotions and experiences in this new adult stage of life. You and Everything After has a well-paced plot and wonderfully drawn characters. I highly recommend You and Everything After, and I am truly looking forward to Ms. Scott’s next addition to this series.
