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.

Those Other Books series
He didn’t have a clue what he was doing. Why was he still here? He should leave. Now.
The house was far away from any main roads, but he could walk for a bit and then get a taxi to the nearest train station back to the city. Maybe there was a bus stop somewhere close. His thoughts sharpened—the jerking off, swim, and caffeine had cleared his brain. Determined not to waste more time daydreaming about wealthy bears who never gave a damn, he finished his coffee. He’d need to sneak back to the bathroom to get his clothes. And his phone. He shouldn’t have lingered.
He found which cabinet door in the kitchen hid the built-in dishwasher and placed the cup inside. Then he climbed the stairs on tiptoes and peeked into the bedroom. Christoffer slept on his back, snoring softly.
Adam spotted his phone on the nightstand. Christoffer must have put it on charge after Adam had fallen asleep. He wouldn’t dwell on how considerate that was. He snatched up the phone and closed himself in the bathroom.
Eying the red thong with disgust, he threw it in the trash. What had he been thinking? He dragged the jeans up his naked body, pulled on his socks and slid into the T-shirt. His jacket was downstairs. He opened the door carefully, ready to bolt without looking at the sleeping man.
Except Christoffer was now sitting on the edge of the bed, naked, staring up at Adam with sleepy eyes.
“Hi,” Christoffer murmured. His eyes slid up and down Adam’s body, noticing the clothes. His smile turned cautious.
“Hi.” Adam shifted from foot to foot. What now?
The moment dragged on until Adam’s heart was pounding. He needed to say something, quick, and get out of there before it could get any more awkward.
“I…” he began but closed his mouth again. He couldn’t decipher Christoffer’s expression. And all that skin on display was distracting.
Christoffer braced his hands on his knees and inhaled deeply, his Goliathan shoulders lifting. “You like eggs?”
“Yeah,” Adam blurted before he thought of the implications. He was staying for breakfast? He wanted to. Stupid! He absolutely shouldn’t! Seeing Christoffer now, those gentle gray eyes such a contrast to his brutish form, Adam ached to stay. You stupid, horny, clingy asshole. Get out of here!
He opened his mouth to say something else, to apologize and whisper goodbye, but Christoffer was faster.
“Good. Wait for me in the kitchen. I just need to…” He gestured to the bathroom door behind Adam’s back.
Adam stepped aside, quivering, and the big man stood in all his naked glory. He bent down and kissed Adam’s cheek, lingering, his breath hot by Adam’s ear. Then he disappeared into the bathroom. “I’ll be just a minute,” he threw over his shoulder before the door snapped shut.
Adam stood there, stunned, and touched his tingling cheek.
