The Truth About Air & Water (Truth In Lies series, book 2) by Katherine Owen

From the bestselling author of "This Much Is True" comes Owen's second novel in the Truth In Lies series, "The Truth About Air & Water". Please note the third book in this series, "Tell Me Something True" is now available completing the trilogy.

"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.
Reality dawns.
The light comes through the darkness and shines on me.
She's my water."
-Lincoln Presley

"The truth is I breathe with him. He is my air. Raison d'etre."
-Tally Landon

Author's note: The Truth About Air & Water is the second book in the Truth In Lies series but can be read as standalone, however, most readers of Owen's work recommend reading "This Much Is True" FIRST. The third book in the series, Tell Me Something True, is also available now.

Simply Fabulous!!! I find it crazy that I am the first person to leave a review for this story, but I am glad I am so hopefully I can entice readers to take a chance on this story. Let me start off by saying to really grasp the power of this story you need to read the first book, This Much Is True. It's there where you will meet Linc & Tally and truly fall in love with them. It's this story that make you believe in the love and time in you invested in these characters through these two books. I found myself going through all kinds of emotions. I started off loving that these two EPIC lovers were still toghether and planning their lives. I moved on to devastation at the turn of events that quickly unfolded in their story. If you've read the first book you can probably relate to the fact that I had to step away from my e-reader for a moment because I couldn't believe that another tradgedy had stuck. But I powered on and found myself just plain damn angry with Linc & Tally. I love them, but boy did I hate them and just wanted them both to get thier stuff together. Then I felt pangs of hope and the characters tried to put their lives back together. And finally relief at an EPIC ending the brilliant author putting me out of my fingernail chewing misery by giving me, the obsessed and engrossed reader a truly EPIC ending. Since I discovered Katherine Owen's work about a year ago or so, she has fast become one of my favorite authors. I can't praise her brilliance enough for giving her readers an amazing second story for Linc & Tally.

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. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

The Truth About Air & Water is an excellent read. I had intended to read This Much Is True first but wasn’t able to work it into my schedule and I’m kind of glad. I don’t know that I would have survived the book hangover had I read both books back-to-back. I was so emotionally drained after finishing this book that I had to sleep on it before I could write my review. The Truth About Air & Water is a rollercoaster ride of epic proportions.  *****ALERT – POTENTIAL SPOILER AHEAD***** Not having read the first book, I wasn’t privy to all of the obstacles that Tally and Lincoln dealt with in their journey together and apparently there were a lot of them. Because of the POTENTIAL SPOILER I am about to mention, Ms. Owen sets up the storyline of the second book in such a way that you don’t have to know them all because we get to learn them as we accompany Lincoln during his path to recovery. The beginning of the book gives those new to a series a glimpse into Lincoln and Tally’s relationship and a few of the pitfalls they encountered via an interview with a sports reporter. I was sucked into their story immediately and devoured the book. This is a couple that has endured a LOT, yet apparently not enough for the universe because while pitching a televised game, Lincoln is hit with a baseball and suffers a major head injury. As Tally was watching at the time, she and her friends and family waste no time in getting to the hospital. Unbeknownst to their friends and family, Lincoln had convinced Tally to elope with him later that day and that he maintained consciousness long enough to inform medical staff was the only reason they informed her of his health status. Despite a positive prognosis, Lincoln takes a turn for the worst and is in a coma for almost two weeks. When he finally emerges from it, he has lost the past six years’ worth of memories, including who Tally is and the existence of his daughter Cara. Without a doubt, this is devastating for Tally and gives Lincoln’s father, Davis, the opportunity he needs to excise Tally from his son’s life. Although Tally suspected that Davis didn’t like her, she never expected him to do what he did. I was devastated for her on so many fronts. But the hits just keep on coming for Tally as she has to deal with Davis’s accusations, Lincoln’s memory loss, being a single mother, maintaining her career as a ballerina, and everything else that life sees fit to throw at her that I cannot mention because I’ve used up my one spoiler pass. Theirs is a story full of love, hate, betrayal, heartbreak, pain, pleasure, devastation, hope and happiness. *****END OF SPOILERS***** Lincoln and Tally are a fascinating and addictive couple – addictive to one another and to me. I devoured this book. As I learned about their past during Lincoln’s recovery it was clear why they kept moving forward despite the numerous times life threw them a curve ball. Their chemistry is so intense and it’s easy to understand why Lincoln considers Tally his water and she considers him her air. They are it for one another – soul mates. I do plan to go back and read This Much Is True because I am addicted to this couple and now need to know the full depth of their past and their journey. Of course I will have to wait until I know I have time to recover from it, because I have no doubt that it will indeed be a book hangover like I’ve never experienced before when I read these two books together. Ms. Owen has found a new fan and I can only hope that her muses inspire her to give us another book in this series as I would love to see what else life has in store for Lincoln and Tally. I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!
