Gel Reviews: The Truth About Air and Water by Katherine Owen + Giveaways


I LOVE this book so much and there is no way I’m going to pass in joining this awesome book tour to show my support and appreciation to Katherine Owen. 🙂

Check it out!


The Truth About Air & Water

By: Katherine Owen

Publication Date: August 25, 2014

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Made with Repix (

The Truth In Lies Series. READ This Much Is True, book 1 first, although it’s been written as a standalone. Readers say, don’t do that.

“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:

This novel is part of the Truth In Lies series. It can be read as standalone, however, fans of my fiction already are highly recommending that those new to my work, READ This Much Is True book 1 FIRST.

As Lincoln Presley would say, “do as you must, Princess.”



***5 Dashing Hearts for Linc and Tally!***

WOW. This is the exact word that I uttered after reading Katherine Owen‘s book—The Truth About Air & Water. This is the second book on her Truth and Lies Series. Although you can actually read this as a stand alone novel, I really think that you should start with book 1—This Much Is True, because the story of Linc and Tally was introduced there. I am really kicking myself for not being able to read the book 1 first. And I will as soon as possible because I want more from this author!;)

It was heavy, it was sweet. You’ll laugh and you’ll definitely cry. There’s betrayal, lies and reconciliation. Gosh! You’ll feel everything in this story. I was such an emotional wreck at some parts of the book that I had to pause and take a break. Which is good—I love this kind of perfectly flawed story.

Katherine Owen writes contemporary edgy fiction, which translates to: she writes love stories that are contemporary in setting and both edgy and dark. Some readers term her books emotional roller coasters. With her writing, Owen admits she has a fondness for angst, likes to play with a little drama, and essentially toys around with the unintentional complications of love. She contends this began early on when she won a poetry contest at the age of fourteen and appears to be without end. Owen has an avid love of coffee, books, and writing, but not necessarily in that order. She writes both Contemporary Romance and New Adult fiction which includes her bestselling TRUTH IN LIES Series (a series despite despising ‘series’) beginning with This Much Is True and her latest release, The Truth About Air & Water. The TRUTH IN LIES series is fan-driven. So. There will be a third book about Linc and Tally released in 2015 titled Tell Me Something True.

About Owen’s fiction…This is NOT the light trope stuff. She travels a unique, writerly path and enjoys writing dark and angsty (a “non-word” she is fond of) emotional love stories. She often warns readers to be prepared with: time, tissues, wine, Advil or your drug of choice. And, as her most favored character, Lincoln Presley, would say, “do what you must, Princess.”
