Book Review: You and Everything After

You and Everything After (Falling #2) by Ginger Scott: 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.

Teri Lyn's thoughts: **You and Everything After generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.**

What I love about Ginger Scott telling a New Adult love story captures exactly how I think falling in love at this time in your life should happen. College represents a time in a young adults life where we’re understanding the freedom of being our own, the freedom of discovering exactly who we are, and the freedom to tweak things about ourselves to make us whole all the while finding someone who embraces the growth, someone who’s also growing. Ms. Scott takes the inevitable vulnerabilities of this shift in life and creates engaging stories of beauty and strength. The writing executed flawlessly to allow the reader a part in her world enabling us to feel each and every emotion she writes from the delicacy of her characters inabilities to the brilliance of the strength in their accomplishments.

You and Everything After, like its predecessor, showcases a hero and heroine who make an instant connection with each other based not just on mutual attraction but a kinship in each other, a likeness providing the knowledge they can help and encourage to make each other better. Its insta-friendship and fondness to where hilarious banter and chasing ensues. Tyson Preeter and Cassidy Owens become fast friends and instant supporters of each other. Mingling a bit their respective pasts to give us insight into their present helps endear these characters to the reader and encourages our support in the beauty and strength of the story. Their belief in each other, their innate need to make each other feel better, to lift each other up and provide for each other a life full of laughs and happiness makes them such an amazing couple to read. Being a witness to their world, reading each of them flourish through the rough times and the good times through both his and her first person narratives made for such a pleasurable reading experience. Plus, as a side note, any man that fosters an obsession with the bad assery of Leonardo DiCaprio gets major bonus points from me.

The secondary characters again make this book more fun, more about the importance of friends and family and the unconditional support they provide. Living on the outside of Nate and Rowe’s relationship, seeing them through Ty & Cass’s thoughts gave extra insight into book one. And the mystery of Paige intrigues the reader more than ever about her making us need her story like right now.

If you’re a New Adult romance lover, Ginger Scott writes some of the best. Perfectly balanced writing between humorous and smart wit to eloquently written sadness both triumph and tragedy make this intelligently constructed story in You and Everything After a definite must read. Ms. Scott’s writing, plots, and characters have made me a forever fan. These are stories I’ll remember and would gladly re-read. I’m beyond grateful for the opportunity to start and continue reading this great series. I cannot wait to discover what Paige’s story will bring in the third installment of Falling Series.
