Title: You and Everything After, Falling #2
Author: Ginger Scott
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.
Order You and Everything After:
SIBLING RIVALRY vs. SIBLING LOVE
Sibling relationships are intricate, almost more so than a romantic one. Ty and Nate have a very close relationship, and I think it’s a natural brotherly relationship. There’s a genuine closeness to them, and I wanted to show something opposite of that competitive nature that you might expect. It would be easy for Ty to be resentful, but I felt like it made his character more complex to instead love his brother as much as he does—so much that he never wants Nate to feel guilty for his inability to walk. Ty is a good guy, with a lot of really
complex layers; he never wants anyone to hurt, and he forgoes his own happiness to make sure others are happy. And he’d give things up for Nate over and over again.
Paige and Cass just aren’t quite there yet. There’s a silent rivalry between them. They’re twins, but not identical. I wanted to give them a relationship that sort of matched their genetics—in sync, but diverting, equals but opposite. As much as they share so many key things, they both crave individuality. When I develop characters, I spend a lot of time thinking through their various relationships and histories, what makes them feel the way they feel and act how they act. Paige and Cass have pages of notes, and I wanted to maintain a sense of realism about their story, give it as much weight as the romantic relationship unfolding. They’re maybe on a path similar to Nate and Ty, but they just took a
