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.



Alexis says…

If you haven’t read This is Falling, I highly recommend you do so before digging into this beautiful book. This is the second book in the Falling series and covers the same timeline that This is Falling but is about different characters.

We were treated with glimpses of Cass and Ty in This is Falling and I can tell you that I wanted nothing more than to read their story. You see, I knew this story was going to be heartbreaking and quite the path to a beautiful love story that will warm your heart. This book will make you become a believer in true love. You and Everything After is an example as to why I read romance books. This story will make you want to tell five of your book friends that they “Must. Read. This. Now.”

Ty is a graduate student staying in the dorms with his brother Nate. Due to a cliff-diving accident, he is now a paraplegic. Ty uses his cocky bravado to keep himself strong and not let his disability break him. He doesn’t let on that he is in pain, nor does he ask for help. He feels the need to stay strong for his brother and his parents. He may be a bit much to handle personality-wise but he is faithful to the people he loves. He is his brother Nate’s biggest supporter, just don’t tell Nate that.

Cass, like Rowe from This is Falling is yet again another fantastic character. She suffers from Multiple Sclerosis but won’t let that define her. In her high school, there were things that she did that she wants to forget. She wants to be a new person and won’t let her past overshadow her new life. Cass’s reasoning for coming to McConnell University is because of their physical medicine and rehab program. Her parents fought her very hard, wanting her to stay close so they can monitor her and her illness. Thankfully her sister Paige agreed to come with her to keep a close eye on her. Though Paige seems to have her own agenda, as she is not the most caring person in the world.

Right off the bat, Ty and Cass hit it off. They become instant friends with undeniable chemistry. They have this crazy-fun banter and I just love it.

“I’m totally going to kiss you again sometime. You know…like friends.”

Both Cass and Ty have physical limitations but they don’t let them stop them. Ty pushes Cass to become the person she was before her diagnosis. Cass in sees past some of Ty’s tough bravado and can see he really is just the sweet, super romantic (though he doesn’t think he is) guy. Both of them try to help each other break through the tough facades they have both built up. Like I said earlier, they both are the type to ever ask for help. Both are a bit reluctant to start dating as their pasts have left them not in a place for a relationship. But these two are destined to be together. They are better together because they need and depend on each other. They root for each other, lean on each other, and just supply the other one with the moral support they need.

I’m not going to lie and say at one point I was beyond pissed at Ty, I mean really pissed. But, I know he had his reasons and his anger was displaced.

“This one. This girl-she’s that other half my mom talks always talks about. I didn’t kiss her because I felt bad for her. I kissed her because I felt her. Cass is me – in every possible way. We’re both broken and pissed, fragile yet strong, careful with our hearts, but free with our words.”

I can’t say enough about Ginger Scott and this series, I just love it. The characters aren’t cookie-cutter and the stories are weaved in with real-life issues. If you are looking for a book that will suck you in and have you so in love by the end of the books, then read them now! I’m without a doubt intrigued by the next book. I don’t know how Paige can become redeemable. She is so unlikeable in both these books but have no doubt Ginger Scott will have us falling in love with her.

“You know I love you, right?”
