You and Everything After by Ginger Scott

We're celebrating the release of You and Everything After by Ginger Scott! 

Title: You and Everything After (Falling #2)
Author: Ginger Scott
Age: NA
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release date: December 5, 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 book 2 in The Falling Series.

Favorite Quotes:
Scene 1:
But I don’t love her. I can’t. Not that fast. And what would Kelly think, if I fell for someone else after telling her I wanted to spare her from having to live a life with me.

What would Kelly think…if I fell in love? With someone else?

If I fell in love with Cass?

(I love this scene for a few reasons. First, I love that it has this natural connection to the series – the sense of falling, the fear of it, especially when you think you’re built to operate one way through life and then suddenly things change. Second, I love to hear inside Ty’s head, to hear him fight against something that feels easy. And third, I think this scene gives you that little insight that Ty may be an arrogant asshead sometimes, but damn is he a gentleman with his heart.)

Scene 2:
I zip my bag and stand on the bench on the other side of the lockers, making enough noise to make the other girls nervous. They can see the top of my head as I walk along the bench. I jump from the seat with enough force to cause my shoes to slap the concrete hard, the sound echoing. By the time I round the corner to face them, my chest is full of swagger.

“Oh, hi, ladies. I didn’t know you were still here,” I say, my smile caught somewhere between the words fuck off and bitches. “Since you are, I thought I’d take this time to maybe clear a few things up.”
Their eyes are wide and their hands are limp at their sides—even the beautiful, confident one who started all this in the first place. This vision is priceless, and it makes the pulsating sick feeling in my stomach completely worth it.

(Can’t lie – this scene is inspired by those moments I’ve had, and know we’ve all had, where you overhear someone saying something not nice. You just wish you could rewind and stand up to them and say everything you say to yourself later when you’re hurt and pissed. Cass says it all - leaves it all out on the field in this scene. I actually clapped when she was done.)

Scene 3:
“I want to hold you to me…but I don’t know how.”

(I could pull more of this scene…but this quote really sums it all up. I love it because it’s Ty being vulnerable. It’s my second favorite moment of his.)

Scene 4:
“My god, Mr. Owens. Your daughter—when she’s running, pushing herself…when she’s in her sport, competing—she’s fearsome. I have never seen anything or anyone like her. And I love her. I haven’t even told her yet, but I do. I love her for everything she is, and I love her for how much she makes me believe in the possible. She’s defiance, in all of its glory. And I don’t really care that it isn’t my place to tell you this, but if you’re too focused on taking the easy route to stop, just for a second, and watch her…and see her as she is? I’m not so sure you deserve to be the one she runs to in the first place.”

(This would be my favorite Ty moment. I have a passion for sports, for athletes –it’s why I gravitate to them in my characters so often. There’s a drive that happens, and when someone is a competitor like Cass and Ty, it’s almost like watching a warrior. I really wanted Ty’s admiration for Cass, the warrior, to come through here. She’s not just a pretty girl to him. She’s a fighter.)
