    This Is Falling by Ginger Scott

    I received an e-copy of this book from the publishers on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Ginger Scott is one of those authors that you hear a lot about and see their books plastered all over the interwebs. I had heard glowing reviews of her books and even her as a person from fellow bloggers and readers alike. When looking through my reading list I was astonished to learn that I had not yet read any of her books. Being as I had a few for review, I decided to rectify this snafu and get down to reading some of her books. This is Falling, being the first in the series was, of course, the first up to bat. Rowe is an introvert finally stepping out of her comfort zone. After a traumatic incident she has kept herself at home with her family, unable to move on. But when her parents started begging her to choose a college she chose one as far away from her home as she could get. She thought her parents would quickly veto the choice but instead they were more on-board than she imagined. And so, Rowe found herself completely ill at ease in a strange environment which held a number of triggers for her anxiety. The only person who seems able to calm her is the catcher for her college's baseball team, Nate. With him she feels like she can finally breathe and that the world is not as scary as she thought it was. Nate was destroyed in a previous relationship and had decided to keep things casual for a while. That was until he met Rowe and started to feel that the long line of one night stands wasn't all it was cracked up to be. But Rowe is damaged and Nate must navigate the minefield that is her fear to find some way to make a relationship work when all Rowe wants to do is run. I am not a baseball fan by any means but I find myself thinking in baseball analogies when it comes to this book. I have read a lot of new adult books recently with the troubled heroine overcoming her issues with the help of a good man. I thought this would be just another rendition of the same ole thing. I expected a swing and a miss. But surprisingly it was a three-base hit instead. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and the characters. I found myself sympathizing with Rowe and rooting for Nate to have patience with her. It was nice to take a break from the chronic bad boys that seem to plague the new adult genre and meet a good natured man with a heart of gold. This is Falling has all the brightness of a packed stadium and has definitely made me a fan (but not of pitchers. I'm a catcher type of woman now).
