THIS MUCH IS TRUE
Book 1 ~ Truth In Lies Series
Fate brings them together
Fame & lies tear 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 whispers about the tragic loss of her twin that seem to follow 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 and can’t quite hide his disappointment when she appears to look right through him and not remembering him at all from the horrific car accident that he saved her from, months before. 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…
She can’t quite contain her attraction for this guy who cooks for her and helps her through more than one of these panic attacks that seem to come out of nowhere these days. It’s amazing to find out they share the same fears about falling, failing, and losing as well as an endless quest for perfection. He with baseball. She with ballet. He makes her feel something again. “You make me want to be a better person, Elvis.”
He can’t get a handle on his feelings for this incredible girl, even though he soon learns she’s lied to him about practically everything. He forgives her because he hasn’t exactly been truthful about the tragic circumstances in which they first met from months before that she obviously doesn’t remember. He ignores the ramifications surrounding their difference in age that could potentially impact his baseball career and reputation; he’s already too far gone over Tally and soon enough her grieving family as well. So he asks her to wait for him because he wants to wait for her.
But fate soon tests these star-crossed lovers in all kinds of ways…
Despite the lies being told to protect the other,
in lieu of the trappings of fame that manage to keep them apart,
and in spite of the deception by those they’ve come to trust the most;
one truth remains.
This much is true.
