The Truth About Air & Water - Katherine Owen

**Received through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**


May contain spoilers if you have not read the first book in the series.


Tally is thrilled to be showing Linc the little church she found in Half Moon Bay for them to have their wedding in. The only problem is she has to convince him to have the ceremony there because his dad wants him to do it at a different location. As they are speaking to Pastor Dan about themselves and their relationship, Linc tells the pastor that Tally can't have any more kids but he really wanted a son. And so begins the doubting of Linc's love for her. Her heart sinks further when the pastor tells them the church won't be available until the summer of next year...right in the middle of baseball season.



Linc decides that he can't wait to marry Tally and formulates a plan to elope, because they can always have the big ceremony later. However, the day before their elopement, Linc is hit by a baseball traveling 90 miles an hour. Tally see's it all on TV, then rushes to the hospital. After being in a drug-induced coma for a couple of days, Linc wakes up. Tally and his father are both in the room. The first thing he says when he see's Tally is: "Who are you? Why are you here?" The injury causes him to lose the past 6 years of his memories. He doesn't know Tally. He doesn't know Cara. And his father seems to want to keep it that way.



The blurb says this book can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading This Much Is True first. I believe you will need that background to see what the relationship is like between these two. Sometimes, it seems easier just to give up, but they keep trudging along. Gotta give them kudos for that.



I felt almost exactly the same way about this book as I did the first one. Tally pissed me off, again. My main thought with her is that she just needs to grow up. After the tragedy she's been through, and having/raising a child, and being disciplined in ballet, you would think that she would be more mature. She kept putting the blame on other people.



I just didn't feel as if Linc and Tally's relationship was as strong as it is portrayed to be. Yes, they persevere until things work out, but they would never give up in the first place if there love was that strong.



There was still a lot of emotion involved and something that made me want to continue reading their story. I just had to see what obstacle they had to face next. I have to say, I was a little disappointed because there wasn't more of a showdown with Davis Presley. He was the one in the wrong, and buying her a dress does not make up for it.



The sweetest part of the book was at Cara's birthday party. When Cara see's Linc again after being away from him for months. But, once again, the best part was the last chapters. The way the author describes the atmosphere and surroundings makes it feel like the perfect ending.



I would recommend this book to fans of New Adult.
