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 

I really liked this story. Its a story of heartache and the devastation of losing someone.  
Tally and Holly are identical twins. On their way home they are in a fatal car accident. Tally tries to pick up the pieces, but life is never the same in more ways than one. That night Tally is saved by a up and coming baseball player Lincoln Presley.

This book is heartbreaking. You really feel for Tally, losing the other half of her self. She's lost, she not only has that to come to terms with, she's also a rising ballet star, she has an eating disorder. She eventually  makes it to NYC to the NYC ballet, but is then hit with a heartbreaking choice she has to make. 

The loss of a sibling is the most heart wrenching thing anyone will go through especially at a young age. This book brought so many memories back for me after losing my brother at the young age of 21. 

You really feel for Tally, just as you think she may just be getting there something else happens. And Lincoln, wow, he's someone else trying survive in a different way, being told by others what's best and what he has to do. Ultimately they have to stay away from each other due to the age difference. 

This book is fantastic. 
I give it 4/5 stars 

About The Author 
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. This sounds like an amazing and emotional read I love that you can really feel what Tally is going through. Wonderful review!

  2. Thanks for featuring and reading "This Much Is True"!
