ARC Review: Adam Only (Those Other Books 2) by Roe Horvat

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.

Dani's rating:

He'd found a treasure. And he was losing his mind.

If you read the first The Other Book then surely you remember Christoffer and Adam, Tyler's friends who occasionally like to play with others. Adam, especially, stole every scene he was in, and this story is all about Adam: Adam the one and only.

If you haven't read The Other Book (and why the hell not?), then read Adam's story first because it comes first.

Adam Only is about how Adam and Christoffer met (at a party), how Adam ran (because he didn't want to be discarded), and how he stayed (because he trusted Christoffer to keep him).

Getting to know Adam—his boundless sexual energy, his streak of exhibitionism, his desire to be kept yet free, bound yet safe—and Christoffer—steady, kind, loyal, a nab who just wants his boy to be happy—makes the connection we first witnessed between them that much more meaningful.

Roe Horvat is fucking brilliant in the way he explores power dynamics between the men.

This book proves that erotica can be:

- romantic
- deeply sensual
- character-driven
- well written
- As HOT as, if not hotter than, porn (because there's nothing sexier than creating images in your own mind)

If you prefer slower burn stories, this isn't the book for you. The sex here is explosive, all consuming, and so damn tender, I wanted to weep. Yes, sex can be dirty AND sweet!

One word of warning: this story is not safe for work. I repeat: do not read in the office; do not read at the coffee shop; read in the privacy of your own home. Because holy fucking scorcher, batman.

All the stars for this book!

I always read. You know how sharks have to keep swimming or they die? I’m like that. If I stop reading, I die.
