Tally Landon lives and breathes ballet; Lincoln Presley lives an
Tally Landon lives and breathes ballet; Lincoln Presley lives and breathes baseball. That is until the two meet and everything changes. Tally and her twin, Holly, are driving home on a rainy Valentine's Day when they are in a car accident. Linc is passing by and stops to help, he pulls Tally out of the car. Tally doesn't remember any of this.
Tally and Linc meet at a party and after a night of passion, everything changes. They want to be together but there are so many obstacles in the way. Tally moves to New York with her best friend Marla for ballet and Linc moves to Los Angeles to play baseball for the Dodgers. After the things that Tally keeps from Linc, she is sure that there is nothing between the two of them anymore. Marla moves back to San Francisco to be with Charlie, Linc's cousin, leaving Tally all alone in New York. Well, except for Holly's ex-boyfriend, Rob.
There is so much drama packed into this story that at times I felt lost. Katherine Owen definitely has a way of tying several storylines together by keeping the main characters involved in the lesser storylines. This is such a great book that deals with a variety of relationship issues and life issues. But, there were times when I was screaming at my Nook because of things that the characters did or said. I wanted so much more information about what happened to the characters at the end, even the characters that I didn't like. I would love to read more about Tally, Linc, Marla, Charlie, Rob and even Nika.

This book is one of the finest NA romance books I¿ve read recent
This book is one of the finest NA romance books I’ve read recently. I’d heard a lot of things about it from many of my friends previously. So when the opportunity to participate in its book tour came, I couldn’t help grabbing the chance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Tally and Lincoln make such a wonderful pair! After reading it may sound like that it’s another mushy gushy fairytale-ish love story, but let me warn you that it’s not. It’s romantic, yes, and not only that; it’s charming, surprising, emotional, touching, heartbreaking and may leave you wanting for more. But it is a standalone and that’s why for those of you who don’t like to delve into NA romance series, it is a really good one to get along with.
Personally, I didn’t like Tally at first. I don’t really like characters with such attitudes and philosophies. But then again, She’d lost her twin sister, and at her age it takes time to heal such wounds. So gradually I got used to it and was okay. Now as I think of it, I believe the author has done a very good job because if Tally was a character acting otherwise, it would have appeared less convincing, at least to me. So yeah, Tally’ is really good, even if she isn’t ;)
As for Lincoln, he is a great character, with his own qualities and flaws. I really, really liked him ( is that even a surprise:p?) Though in the book there are moments when I felt like throwing something at him still he makes it up to me pretty well :D And I like the chemistry of him with Tally. However, the thing that slightly bothered me is the lack of that ‘X factor’ within their relationship. I mean, at times they didn’t appear as a couple at all and I get sad when that happens to my leads :( They seem to be destined for each other but all other silly things keep coming in the way:
"Being together is all we ever wanted."
And as for the ending, I liked it. Though it seems a tiny bit abrupt, I still like it. REALLY LIKE IT. So yeah, I strongly recommend the book for anyone who has a thing for an amazing NA read :D
