ARC Review: Adam Only by Roe Horvat

Adam Only (Those Other Books #2)
From the Blurb:
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.

Ky's rating:

"Adam Only" is the second book in the new series by Roe Horvat titled "These Other Books" but it takes place a few years before the first one.

We met Adam and Christoffer as a committed, loving and solid couple and this time we get the "how it all began" part of their story.

The book takes place mainly over a weekend and I usually don't like such a small timeframe in my books, but this time it worked. Maybe it was because we had already seen them together and knew how perfect they were for each other or it was because this author can write anything and make me not want to stop reading until I reach the last page. Either way, this was a story that, just like the first book, can be branded as erotic romance but it also has an actual plot and solid characters.

Adam is a little lost in his life. He loves to dance and he finally has a job doing that, but at the same time he feels lonely and damaged. He's been burned by some bad choices in past lovers and he's afraid to let himself get close to someone again. His attraction to Christoffer in undeniable but their differences are so obvious that he can't help but wait to be cast aside once more.

Christoffer is a big man with a tender heart. He cares about Adam and wants to see more of him but Adam's assumptions about his intentions get in the way and he's left scrambling for a way to find the beautiful man that spent a weekend in his house.

Their story is sensual, passionate and emotional. Maybe they moved too fast but, for once, that didn't bother me bacause we had already seen them as a couple and they were perfect.

Tyler from book one is present here, still wild and single. If he only knew what the future holds for him once he meets Joel!

So yeah, another wonderful book by Roe Horvat, you don't need to read the series in order but do read both books at some point, in any order you decide, because they're both great!

Now let's settle in for the wait to see if there will be a third book....
