Book Description:

 This Much Is True


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 the 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?

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. 

Caution: This title contains some strong language, some violence, and some sexual situations and is intended for readers 18+ in age.

My Review:

This book… this darned book hooked me from the beginning. It starts off getting to the point. And from there the story just evolves. It was nothing like what I thought it would be. I was in for a calm, chill book to read just to pass time. And what I got was a twisted, dramatic, hanging-on-the-edge-of-your-seat, late night graveyard sex type book. Now this main character Tally… she is lost and broken. Yet, she is also brave I’m very glad I read about how she found herself. I felt sympathy for her I swear I almost cried at one point of the book. I also felt her achievements, which is hard for an author to portray in a book. But I have to say that Katherine Owen did very good at portraying this, all of the characters are well developed and seem to be well thought out, too. The story line itself is great and the climax was even better than I thought it would be. The events that played out in the book is not what I saw coming. The male characters were a little stupid for falling for Nika. But other than that it was great and I wouldn’t change a thing.
This is a fantastic book. Get it now!!


About the Author


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: “When I See You, “Not To Us”, Seeing Julia” as well as my latest release “This Much Is True” (which hit #1 on Amazon best seller lists for Sports Romance, Holiday Romance within a week of its release). Competitive; much, KO? Oh yes.

If you love angsty, unpredictable love stories, I’m yours. ♥ Connect with me at
