REVIEW: Adam Only by Roe Horvat on AUDIOBOOK

The Official Description: 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.

Narrator of Audiobook: John Solo

Just the facts: Audiobook, M/M Erotica, part of series (can be read as standalone)

My thoughts bit: This book is a M/M erotic novel. I’m talking almost 90% steamy sex! So, don’t go into this one thinking you’ll be getting a convoluted plot. The interesting thing is that Roe Horvat still manages to give the characters some depth and provide an interesting story!

Adam is a dancer and he’s had his eye on Christoffer for a while when they finally hook up one night at a party. There’s a smoking connection between these two men and it’s very much mutual and instant! Adam is absolutely intoxicated by Christoffer and lets himself go immediately.

The two men spend two days together. They have sex, they talk, they swim, they walk…but are they really getting to know each other? It’s interesting how the author manages to give the characters a fair amount of development even though the plot is limited primarily to a few weeks.

The narrator does a great job of distinguishing between the two main characters without it being an over-the-top difference. I found it quite easy to follow along with which POV was being represented. It was really well done. I’m actually quite picky about the narrators of my audiobooks and John solo definitely worked for me.

I do wish that there had been more about Adam’s dancing in the book. I absolutely loved the way that Roe wrote the descriptive scenes while Christoffer was seeing Adam dance for the first time. It was absolutely beautiful and quite poetic. I could have read an entire book about that dancing!!!!

Things You May Want To Know: Please be aware, I’m by no means an expert on what may or may not have the potential to disturb people. I simply list things that I think a reader might want to be aware of. In this book: (SPOILERS) Brief mentions of an emotionally abusive relationship in the past.
