Seven Shades of You (Twin Hearts #2) by A.M. Johnson #BookReview #ReleaseBlitz #TBR #TwinHearts #AvailableNow #Review #AMJohnson #Bookaholic #BookLovers

Release Date: June 13, 2019

Cover Design: Amanda Bockman


Her world was color. Canvas and paint. Indie O’Connell lived inside her head. Her voices the muse. And as a freshman at St. Peter's College, all she wanted, was to create a name for herself with the brush in her hand.

His world was over. Despite his humble upbringing, Kai Carter seemed to have it all. Captain of the swim team and a full scholarship. His golden boy status a mask he had to wear to keep his dream and his family afloat. All the pieces of his life dangled precariously from his fingertips.

Forced to fight a battle he’d never signed up for, Kai’s loyalty turned out to be his undoing, and like a good captain, no matter what the cost, he’d gone down with the ship.

They never planned for their worlds to collide.
He was her brother's best friend.
She was supposed to be invisible.

Off limits.

Being together, regardless of how much they wanted it, was a line they'd never cross. But when lives get messy, lines get blurred, and in love, nothing is ever black and white.


I honestly don't even know where to begin with my review. This book was so beautifully written that my simple words will not do it justice. 
I fell in love with both Indigo and Kai in the first book in the series, LET THERE BE LIGHT, which was based on Indigo's brother Royal and Kai's roommate Camden. Kai is also on the swim team and best friends with Royal, Indie's brother. You could tell there was a connection between the two but nothing ever came from it, or so we thought, since the two books overlap during a time period we find out that things weren't as they had seemed. The chemistry was beyond amazing between the campus man-whore and the sweet, shy, virgin. 

Kai is dealing with his mothers illness and his fathers past indiscretions, he's doing this by drowning himself in liquor and women, which is not the best way to deal with things. Over Christmas break things take a turn and Kai needs to make changes. 

Indigo/Indie has been dealing with mental illness for most of her life but she has learned how best to keep the voices in her head from taking over and she does this by painting, something she is truly gifted at.   

A.M. Johnson has done a wonderful job with bringing mental health issues and illnesses to light in both books in the TWIN HEARTS DUET, she has taken what many people would shy away from and given a voice to it. (no pun intended)  Once I picked up this book I didn't want to put it down. SEVEN SHADES OF YOU was so well written you feel as if you are there witnessing everything as it unfolds.
I am sad to see this duet come to an end but I loved the way it ended and the epilogue was PERFECT!

Happy Reading!!!
