Review and Giveaway: This is Falling by Ginger Scott


First, I had to remember how to breathe. Then, I had to learn how to survive. Two years, three months and sixteen days had passed since I was the Rowe Stanton from before, since tragedy stole my youth and my heart went along with it.

When I left for college, I put a thousand miles between my future and my past. I’d made a choice—I was going to cross back to the other side, to live with the living. I just didn’t know how.

And then I met Nate Preeter.

An All-American baseball player, Nate wasn’t supposed to notice a ghost-of-a-girl like me. But he did. He shouldn’t want to know my name. But he did. And when he learned my secret and saw the scars it left behind, he was supposed to run. But he didn’t.

My heart was dead, and I was never supposed to belong to anyone. But Nate Preeter had me feeling, and he made me want to be his. He showed me everything I was missing.

And then he showed me how to fall.

Review by Allison East
Another Ginger Scott book that has WOWED me. Seriously. I didn't think that I could love one of her books more than How We Deal With Gravity, but I was wrong. I super duper love this new book from her, This is Falling. The plot was amazing, the characters were quirky and I wanted to know more about each and every one of them- including the secondary characters, and that doesn't happen often. They also developed and grew over the course of this book, especially the heroine. I am so glad I got to read another fantastic story by this amazing author.
Strong as hell Rowe- had been put through the ringer. After a shocking event happens to her in high school, she spends two years compartmentalizing all the emotions that she should feel. She keeps everything inside and is a hollow shell of a girl when she heads off from Arizona to Oklahoma for college. She was quite literally dead inside, her heart belonging to someone who couldn't give her what she so desperately needed in return; love. Until she met Nate.

Nate Preeter loves baseball- and he is really good at it. It's a love that was shared by his brother, Ty,  until an accident paralyzed him from the waist down, and ultimately- Nate felt like he had to continue with baseball for his brother's sake. He is not the typical NA novel bad boy of the campus, strutting and preening for all the sorority girls; he is basically a one woman kind of man and after bumping into Rowe late one night in the showers. (don't worry, they were clothed) He knew that she was the one for him. But how could he convince someone who is so shut off from the world, that he wanted to be with her? Slowly.

"I will wait for you,  I say and her breath catches quickly, her eyes watering almost instantly. "Do you hear me?"

Their banter and sense of humor with one another- was my favorite. They were always trying to up each other and prank each other- and I think it was good that Rowe got that bit of friendship at the beginning of their relationship. And thank God Nate was understanding and willing to move slowly.
It all came to a head with a Facebook message- and that is where the story ran straight uphill, without looking back. So of course I knew something was going to happen to mess it up- and I was right. But not for long- Rowe and Nate belong together!

I absolutely cannot wait for the next installment with Nate's brother, Ty and Rowe's roommate, Cass- You and Everything After - it looks to be absolutely fantastic! I mean, hello, Ginger Scott is phenomenal!
