SUMMARY
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.

Is it possible to reinvent yourself? This is the question that both the hero and heroine must face, conquer and own in YOU AND EVERYTHING AFTER, before they can open themselves up to the possibility of a HEA. What an emotional roller coaster! I loved how this new adult romance gem dealt with some very sensitive topics, like disabilities (both MS and being paralyzed), as well as low self-esteem and conquering a bad reputation. The passion and romance between the two main characters was also well developed and touching. This was my first experience with Ginger Scott, and I guarantee it will not be my last!

Cassidy ("Cass") Owens knows what it is like to be plagued by adversity. Diagnosed with MS as a teenager, she coped with her diagnosis with some arguably self-destructive behavior and, at the demand of her parents, by giving up her dream of playing college soccer. To self-medicate, she sought comfort in the arms of any boy, or in some cases men, who could temporarily help her forget her diagnosis and gained a reputation for being "easy" in the process. To make matters worse, Cass also has a twin sister, who while intending to help at times, lets her jealousy of all the attention that Cass gets as a result of her illness cause her to do questionable things that end up hurting Cass in the process. Cass is determined to turn around her reputation and stop allowing her twin to sabotage her efforts when she enrolls in McConnell College.

Tyson ("Ty") Preeter, a graduate student at McConnell College, has had his own fair share of devastating losses, chief of which is his ability to walk, which he lost in a diving accident when he was 16. Although he will no longer be able to live his dream of playing baseball, he has channeled his efforts into working as a physical therapist to train others with disabilities to succeed in their athletic goals. When Ty meets Cas he sees something special in her and convinces her to start training to join their college's women's soccer team. Although Ty has been the "love them and leave them" type since he lost his ability to walk, little by little he starts falling for Cass, a feeling which Cass also shares, but given her reputation is afraid to give into (particularly given that Ty is several years older).

Will Cass and Ty be each other's salvations? Is it even possible to change from the persons who they have let their disabilities let them become?

What an enjoyable, inspirational story! For those of you who are wondering how this story--the second in the Falling series--fits in with book 1, please note that both stories seem to happen on a concurrent basis. All that said, each can easily be read as a standalone, as each focuses on a different main couple. As I have not yet had the pleasure of reading This is Falling, which focuses on Ty's brother and Cass' roommate, I now look forward to going back to read Book 1!
