Fate brings them together

Fame & lies keep them apart

One truth remains…

She’s become the Paly High girl with the most tragic story…

At 17, Tally Landon just wants to graduate and leave for New York to pursue ballet. Her best friend Marla convinces her to attend one last party—a college party—where she can be among strangers and evade the whisperings about her heartbreaking loss of her twin that follows her everywhere she goes. She meets Lincoln Presley, Stanford’s famous baseball wonder and has a little fun at his expense—when she lies about her age and who she really is—intent on being someone else for the night and escaping her tragic story.

His only focus is baseball, but he can’t forget the girl he saved on Valentine’s Day…
At 22, Lincoln Presley’s star is on the rise—about to finish at Stanford and expected to be taken early in Major League Baseball’s upcoming draft—his cousin’s party serves as a welcome distraction. But then, he sees the girl from Valentine’s Day that he saved from that horrific car accident and can’t quite hide his disappointment when she appears to look right through him and not remember him at all. He vows to learn her name at least before he leaves. What’s the harm in getting to know this girl? What’s the worst that can happen?
They share this incredible connection, but fate soon tests these star-crossed lovers in all kinds of ways…

And yet, despite the lies being told to protect the other, and the trappings of fame that continually separate them, and in lieu of the deception by those they’ve come to trust the most; one truth remains.

This much is true.

My review:

This book had me torn up until the very end. So much loss, lies, anger, secrets, passion but this much is true, it is a love story. Tally and Linc meet for the first time in the middle of tragedy that left Tally heartbroken. When they see each other again, she doesnt remember him but it i obvious they have a connection. So, after a few lies told they spend the night together and from there starts the real story. They are apart but they love each other. The age difference is too big. Lincs career could be in jeopardy because of the age difference. They are both perfectionists with very demanding careers that are their whole lives. They both hurt each other again and again so I almost didnt want them to end up together. How can love survive so many lies, secrets and betrayals? It seems that true love does. There are also a few very interesting support characters like Mara, Tallys best friend, and Rob, the dead twin Hollys boyfriend. They each have their own story within the main one. I cried a lot while reading, the book is very emotional and the writing is great. This is a definite must read for fans of New adult.

Dark. Edgy. Contemporary. Romantic. Were we describing me? Or my fiction? Sorry. I drink too, not enough water. I swear too much for God and my mother, and I slip these into my fiction. Sorry. I'm impatient, a perfectionist, a wordsmith, a dreamer, which ends up being good and bad. I'm a workaholic; ask my fam-dam-ily. I've written four novels in as many years: SEEING JULIA, NOT TO US, & WHEN I SEE YOU, as well as my latest release THIS MUCH IS TRUE. If you love angsty, unpredictable love stories, I'm yours. ♥   


  1. Glad you liked this! This sounds like a very emotional read!

Made you happy, sad, or sometimes, in-between? One of those or all of them...Thank you for reading my work.
