On stage, Adam lets his passion drive him. All his secret desires, everything nasty, dirty, and beautiful flows freely through him, for once in harmony. His soul thrives when his body moves, but only on stage. Adam’s passionate nature makes him a great dancer…and a failure at life. He’s a lonely, emotional mess. Going home with a man far out of his reach is the last thing Adam should do. Christoffer represents everything Adam isn’t: strong, independent, educated, and rich. His kind eyes, at odds with his brutish form, make Adam’s knees and restraint buckle.

Once Christoffer sees Adam dancing, he’s lost. The young man is mesmerizing, otherworldly, and unpredictable. Whatever might happen between them, it will be transient, and Christoffer will most likely get hurt. The temptation is too great, however, and the sex explosive. He might as well enjoy every moment he’s given, even if it’s just one day, maybe two. If Christoffer treads carefully, Adam might stay until Monday.

Warning: Adam Only is a gay erotic love story. It contains explicit language and sexual scenes between two consenting men. For adult readers only.

The ability Roe Horvat has to take dirty, sexy words and deeds and turn them into sweet romance is just magical. Really. It boggles my mind.

I loved The Other Book and fangirled when I found out there were going to be more in the series and this addition just blew me away. We met Adam and Christopher in The Other Book and I love that Adam got his own story. He and Christopher needed to be heard and their story is just so bone crushingly powerful, gah. It’s the perfect meshing of need and trust and freedom.

Adam has a history of falling hard and fast and for the wrong guy. He’s been known to overstay his welcome and doesn’t want to make the same mistake again. So, after spending a weekend with Christopher he leaves before he is told to leave. And Christopher is left wondering what he did wrong.

Both MC’s were somewhat cocky at the the start when they met, but once they let themselves get carried away, they were both so vulnerable and young. There are very few authors that I’ve read that can get that sentiment out in their writing and do it well and this is one of them. My heart twisted for Christopher. It ached for Adam. I loved falling so hard for these characters.

And yes, for those all about the sex, there was a lot of it, but it was really beautiful. It was full of passion and need and oozed love.

I could go on and on but you should just read it for yourself. Buy a copy and treasure it.

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after. Favorite Authors: Garrett Leigh, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes, Lane Hayes, T.J. Klune, Roan Parrish, N.R. Walker, Cara Dee, Anyta Sunday
