Be Still My Beating Heart!

A.M. Johnson knows how to get to the heart of the matter. She never leaves one stone unturned and Meet Me in the Blue checks all the boxers and more. Sometimes a story catches a reader off-guard, and it takes a moment to truly digest the entire story.

This is how Meet Me in the Blue stilled my heart. Luka and Rook are the untold story who windup together after years of being apart. In AM Johnson’s unique way, she weaves in heart-wrenching real-life situations and creates a beautifully told love story.

Meet Me in the Blue is one of those great penned pieces which engages the reader. “Triggering” is not the word I’d use… When I read something that tugs close to the heart and makes me/anyone uncomfortable it should be noted the author crafted a piece that touched the reader in a way nobody else has. It is a reader’s choice to open those emotional floodgates and allow those words to affect them. Too often, readers choose to shut down rather than embrace the journey to see where the author leads them. For me, this is what a crafty author evokes, and it’s an amazing gift. A.M. Johnson provides this delightful present in Rook and Luka’s story.

Meet me… in the place where the sun kisses the horizon and sinks into blue shades of you and me.

Meet me there… where everything was always perfect. You and me and the damp grass at dawn and the gray dirt in the late evening rain.

Meet me where we were ourselves and not these two people who can’t even say I love you.

Meet me there and maybe we’ll remember…

We’ll remember the us we were before them, before miles, before lost hours, and you’ll ask what color the sky is, and I’ll say blue like your eyes.

And you’ll smile, and I’ll forget I ever missed you.


Luka and Rook have been best friends since they were nine years old.

Five years ago, Luka threw it all away.

When his dad’s health takes a turn for the worst, Luka must come home to say his goodbyes and mend the bridges he burned all those years ago. But coming home is harder than he imagined, and after reuniting with his family, there’s only one person he needs.


His best friend.

The one man he pushed away, the one man, no matter how hard he tried to forget, he can’t stop himself from loving.

Even if loving him means breaking his heart all over again.

Meet Me in the Blue is a stand alone, best friends to lovers, second chance, demi-awakening, MM romance, with a whole lot of small town heart, meddling moms, gossiping townies, self-discovery, a friendship forged of forts, Dungeons and Dragons, and a love that will stand the test of time.
