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 scoring 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.
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.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
I don't think I have the words to get my thoughts on Let There Be Light across without sounding like a blabbering fool because it was that good. That full of emotion. That full of heart. A.M. Johnson did something special with this book and I hung on every word (even when my eyes were misty).
There was something about Royal. I couldn't help but like him. He was kind. Honest. Skilled. Charismatic. He had a special bond with his twin, Indie, and had no trouble making friends. But it was when he met his best friend, Kai's roommate, Camden, that things started to change.
Sigh. Camden...there's a bit of him in all of us. Quiet. Unsure. He saw the word in sound. But so much braver than he gave himself credit for. I loved his talent and how he hid in his music. Until he didn't anymore. Until Royal's confidence in him made see his genius.
While Royal didn't quite understand the feelings he was having, he couldn't deny the pull towards Camden. It was a sweet slow burn. It wasn't all sunshine and roses, they faced their share of challenges for sure. Thankfully they had a great support system in Royals family (WHOOP! for the Avenues Ink crew). And there were a few unexpected allies found along the way too.
Hats off to A.M. Johnson for writing this book. Let There Be Light should be on everyone's list. It's vital and speaks a truth that we need today. Love not hate. Acceptance. Not just of others but of yourself. Finding joy even in the small things. And while both Royal and Camden had a lot to lose but they knew, deep in their souls, that their love was worth the risk.
