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 Thoughts:

"There's one thing I now recognize, if you don't have trust, you really don't have anything."

Tally loved ballet, ballet is her life. It was the one constant thing in her life. After the death of her sister things started to go down hill but ballet remained the same or her. As she rises to fame the reader will see what she had to deal with and what she gave up to get where she is at. 

Linc met Tally at a part and the attraction between the two was instant. Little did he know what little relationship they were developing was based on lies that can ruin his career of being a pro baseball player. Before he starts professionally he was requested to break it off with Tally because she was a distraction and can be an issue with her age. No matter how things go one thing remained the same his love for Tally. 

"We both know that life has a way of changing things on us before we can figure it out, and you can't predict what's going to happen in the next."

I've had this book for sometime now as an arc from netgalley and for some reason kept putting it off till now. Not sure why, this book was just fantastic.

There is just so much to love about this book. With just the first chapter I knew I was going to be hooked. Thank goodness I had a snow day so there was no breaks with me and this book I read it straight through. Once you get your hands on this book you'll understand why. The main theme to this book was lies, just lies upon more lies make up this book. I loved that this book had two point of views of Linc and Tally so I can connect and enjoy the characters more. Its like when this start to get good the author is like nope gotta take it down a notch and something happens. Jeez Tally just couldn't catch a break. When it came to 92% of the book I just couldn't help but think that was way too convenient, I was expecting a little more drama with that but then again Tally had too much drama to deal with.  This book was heartbreaking and hopeful and be prepares to have your emotions ripped apart. This book is an emotional roller coaster. (Don't say I didn't warn you!) 

5 of 5 stars! Highly Recommend!

Dark. Edgy. Contemporary. Romantic. Were we describing me? Or my fiction? Sorry. I drink too much...coffee, 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. ♥
