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.

Nothing special

Predictable, unoriginal, totally redundant addition to the genre. Lack of tension except for two stereorype homophobes. And I don't get how a psychiatrist, having finished medical school, is not educated on modern gay facts. I mean, where did she get her literature? Is there a specialized publisher for medical professionals maintaining 50 year old theories?

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 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

✫✫ 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?!?

AMAZINGLY WRITTEN

ive listened to 100s of romances an this has got to be my favorite so far Aaron an teddys voice together is like gravel in the ocean on a stormy night this book was so intensively romantic and shows that there is a deepness to silence. I loved it even the words like a slow but deep melody.

A very sweet romance story

The story of Royal and Camden. Such a sweet heartwarming romance.
Royal is a twin, at school on a scholarship for the swim team and meets his teammates roommate. Camden, he's a very introverted isolated piano genius. These boys grow so much, it's such a sweet story I enjoyed it very much the narration was so good.

My favourite love story

I loved this book so so much. Royal and Camden are beautiful characters and their journey is wonderful and painful.
I would recommend this book to everyone who loves a good love story.
Teddy Hamilton is one of my favourite narrators and Aaron Shedlock is good as well.

Love is Love

MM romance story with great narration. 2 male college students not know how and then learning how to navigate the attraction they have towards each other. Finding acceptance from some of their peers and the dealing with the judgement of others. They learn who will stand by them and be supportive and who will not. They are willing to sacrifice what is most important to them as they fall deeper in love with each other.

I felt this story in my heart.

I have listened to this book three times since I bought it, it's a story I could listen to over and over again and if I had it in paperback the pages would be bent and the spin broken from frequent re-reads. As a writer, working on my first MM romance I started listening to MM romances for reseach and now I'm addicted. It helps that Teddy Hamilton and Aaron Shedock are two of my favorite narrators. I could listen to the two of them read the dictionary. The only way it would be better is if it were narrated in duet.
