Publisher's Summary

His world was water and rhythm. Hard work and drive kept Royal O'Connell one step ahead of his competition. His spot on the swim team, keeping his scholarship, was the only plan that mattered.  

His world was ebony and ivory. Natural talent and ambition set Camden Morgan apart from the other music majors. His dedication scored him a full ride.  

Normally, their paths would have never crossed...but when Royal meets his best friend's new roommate, his big plan and Camden's controlled environment faces a variable that could destroy it all: attraction.  

The world they live in had no room for error. That undeniable pull between them was dangerous, and neither one of them could've prepared for the choice they'd have to make.  

Love isn't always an easy road, and when everything they've worked for is on the line, they'll have to decide if being together is worth the risk.  

Contains mature themes.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

I think this is a great book for for someone delving into MM for the first time. It is a sweet love story with light sex scenes. The story is a bit of a slow burn between 2 college students who have very limited to no sexual history. The attraction between them is instant and they have a couple friends who help them realize its no one else's business who they love. Camden's parents are awful but Royal's parents make up for it in spades!! His family is exactly the way all families should be. There is a homophobic scene and I have to say I love the way it was handled. The ending was what moved this book from 3.5 to 4 stars for me, it was sweet and stole my heart!
Also I'm 99% sure I know what the next book is going to be about because of the clues and little hints and I can't wait!

The narration was PERFECT! Teddy & Aaron were the reason I pre-ordered this audiobook. I love both of their work and they were perfectly cast for Camden and Royal. These are two narrators that I purchase books based on them not the author. This time I was lucky though because I love AM Johnson's book too!

An angsty, m/m coming of age love story that will stay with you for a long time

AM Johnson is an amazing author that draws such beautiful imagery that you feel like you are watching a movie not just listening to her book. You can feel the pain that Camden feels and how he channels it into his music. You can feel the love Royal has for his twin and his family. When he first laid eyes on Camden it makes me sigh.

Always love Teddy Hamilton and Aaron Sherlock and they were well cast as Royal and Camden. The vulnerability and uncertainty is there in their narration.

The love scenes are not as explicit but totally beautifully written. The story is focused on their budding romance and the discovery in itself.

Definitely worth a credit!

Acceptance

The story was sweet and the connection between the main characters was sweet. I enjoyed it, but it didn’t blow me away.
The sibling connection was great. And their parents are the kind of parents everyone should have. They were awesome.
Camden, on the other hand, doesn’t have it so easy and he is a quiet kind of guy but Royal really brought him out of his shell again it was a sweet story and I enjoyed the journey. If you are new to MM this is the story for you.
I am hoping we get Royal’s sister and best friend I think that will be an interesting story because of her medical stuff. I would like to see how that affects her.

I LOVED THE NARRATION! Can we please have Aaron Shedlock and Teddy Hamilton do all MM books from now on? Can we please, please?!?

Royal and Camden!

I love getting to take a look at the O'Connell twins all grown up! This first book in the Twin Hearts series features Royal as he enters college. A champion swimmer, he could have gone anywhere but chose to be near his sister Indie and there he met his heart. Only it's not who anyone expected. Camden is a talented piano player whose whole life revolved around being the best and appearances. When he told his parents of his desires, he was quickly tamped down. But now apart from his parents, he finds himself drawn to Royal. Can these two find their happiness? I enjoyed this book of coming of age, coming out and acceptance of who you are. It's a slow burn, sweet and tender with a few bumps in the road. I enjoyed getting back to see the O'Connell clan with Declan, Paige and a cameo by Liam! Plus that college life always brings a nostalgic feel.

Teddy Hamilton and Aaron Shedlock bring it all to life with their narration. Hamilton is the perfect Royal. He has that confident feel, and lets us know he is comfortable in his skin. Camden is less self assured, and Aaron Shedlock picks this up with his performance. We can feel Camden's uncertainty and the change in him with the inflections Shedlock uses. This is an incredible narration team.

Beautiful Light!

These Two are Something Else - this book caught my heart from the word go. I am harder and harder to please these days so very glad I tried AM!!! Please give this a shot! You won't regret it! The narration is beautiful by both narrators! These two are among my favorites! AM, If this is one of your first forays into male/male, I approve - well done - I am a heterosexual married woman, but LOVE IS LOVE and this is a wonderful visceral tale of Love. Waiting for your next book like this - or to continue their story!

A new favorite to add to my collection!

Let There Be Light is the newest addition to my favorites shelf! I loved Royal and Camden's story so much. I loved the slow build, the discovery of each other, the honesty in their relationship. This was such a lovely, heartwrenching yet heartwarming, coming of age story.
The narration was out of this world- I could listen to Teddy and Aaron all day, every day. Preferably together. They were both so wonderful, but there was just something about Aaron's portrayal of Camden that just blew me away. He completely nailed Camden's vulnerability and had me in tears multiple times. I even had to turn the audiobook off at one point as I was driving to work, otherwise I would have been a sobbing, blubbering mess on the side of the road. I've really enjoyed the other books I've listened to that Aaron's narrated, but this one's my new favorite. Teddy was terrific as Royal- the love he had for his sister and family really shone through. I was just totally enamored with these two, they really were the perfect Royal and Camden.

Great audio...

Fantastic audio interpretation of this story from the always fabulous Teddy Hamilton and new-to-me narrator Aaron Shedlock. There was some unnecessary drama in the story which didn't make much sense to me [Uncle] and of course the ubiquitous hate crime by an absolute pig of a jealous swimming jock, although that WAS entirely predictable. Lovely almost lyrical quality to some of the writing, and Royal and Camden made a great team. Not giving anymore of the story away...4 stars for the story and 5 stars for the audio. Yet another Teddy Hamilton winner for me 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
