The Truth About Air & Water (Truth in Lies #2)
by Katherine Owen
Summary from Goodreads:
The Truth In Lies Series. READ This Much Is True, book 1 first, although it’s been written as a standalone. Readers say, don’t do that.
“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” -Ernest Hemingway ~ A Farewell To Arms
They share an epic love but one moment changes everything. A life together that seemed certain is shattered. One learns you never love the same way twice; the other learns what it means to come home. You only think you know how this love story goes, but do you really know how an epic love can end?
“There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald
She is living color, and I’ve been in a black-and-white world for far too long without her.
Powerful stuff. It surrounds me. I’ve felt it since I first arrived. The forcefield of her. The magnetism of her. The power she wields over me. I’m alive again because of her, like a dying plant that finally gets some water. I’ve got it bad for this girl.
The light comes through the darkness and shines on me.
She’s my water.
The truth is I breathe with him. He is my air. Raison d’etre.
Author’s note: This novel is part of the Truth In Lies series. It can be read as standalone, however, fans of my fiction already are highly recommending that those new to my work, READ This Much Is True book 1 FIRST.
As Lincoln Presley would say, “do as you must, Princess.”
I stayed up late at night devouring this book and finishing it was a bittersweet moment for me because it really is the end of the beautiful, tragic, epic love story of Linc and Tally. After reading This Much is True, I knew for a fact I was going to love The Truth About Air and Water, there was no question about it.
This second book was just as amazing as the first. It was intense, filled with extremely heartbreaking moments but ultimately unforgettable. Linc and Tally face a whole new set of hardships in this sequel as the world conspires to keep them apart. Prepare yourself for the angst that comes with this unique couple -it’s another crazy ride but Linc and Tally will steal your heart all over again.
Also, I am completely enamored with Katherine Owen’s writing style. I love the quotes she includes and the depth behind her words. Her characters are flawed but perfect in their imperfectness. Tally is different from any other heroine I’ve encountered as is Linc and I can honestly say I will never forget this couple.
I highly recommend this amazing series and if you’re tired of reading the typical, predictable new adult romance books, you should definitely give these a try.
