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 ...more

Ladies and gentlemen, clear your schedule, get somewhere private (TRUST ME), and dig in, because once you start reading Adam Only, you are NOT going to want to do anything else.

I loved, loved, loved this book. I loved it. I read it in public (my bad), but it was pure, erotic poetry. I finished it in less than a day... and I could have read 100 pages more and been happy.

If you enjoyed the style of The Other Book, then you wi

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 (bec

When Adam appeared on the podium,it was Adam only.









Roe Horvat can do sweet and sexy with books like Vanilla Clouds and then you have this.This book is very erotic,I mean seriously erotic.There's a lot of sex here but it's important to the story.I didn't realize it was about Adam and Christoffer from The Other Book.....remember that hot threesome ?? While it was great to get the story of how an established couple met here I would say this could be read on it's own but you'd be missing

Oi! I really wanted this to be 5 stars but it just wasn't for me.

This is a case of it's me, not the book.

description

I loved Adam and Chris when they appeared in book 1. I was looking forward to their story, but when this happened, it ended up being sex, sex, sex, sex, and more sex. I do understand that this is erotica, and i love me some sex, at the beginning it was hot then it became too much.

I ended up zoning out sometimes and didn't feel the connection between Adam

I'm stranded on a desert island and I can pick one author to spoil me with books for the rest of my days....hope you like surf and sand Roe, you're coming with me!
I knew it from the very beginning, stuck in an airport.
Yet, I can't begin to tell you how grateful and awestruck I am every time.
Horvat's stories are precious.
They are a gift. And Adam Only was the perfect way to celebrate my birthday weekend.

This erotic masterpiece is more than intimate revelations.
It's far beyond burning desires

Told in dual POV, 3rd person, it’s the second installment in the "Those Other Books" series but it can be read as a standalone. It’s almost angst-free, an easy read, there is a huge age gap (15 years) and fortunately or unfortunately it’s more sex than plot but still it’s an enjoyable read. Overall, I liked it and hope you enjoy it as well!

This is the second book for me by this author and again, I was very impressed. This story is the definition of sexy and naughty but not without also being romantic. I can also tell you I was pretty aroused at the end ;)

Those of you who have read The Other book, already know Christoffer and Adam. Those of you who haven't should really give it a go. They had some nice "playtime" with Tyler. I remember being very curious about the dynamics of their relationship and wanting to know more. So I was e

I loved all the books I've read by Roe Horvat and this book is no exception.
When I start a book by this author I just know it's going to be amazingly written. And this one was HOT. Super HOT!

This is the second book in the series Those Other Books.
It can be read as a standalone, even if it's actually about a couple we met in The Other Book. If you haven't read the first book, then you can definitely start with this one as it's about how Adam and Christoffer met and fell in love. Th

Just as smexy and explicit as the first, this delivered even more fantastically, touching on many favorite tropes.

-Sensitive, caring, gentle giant who yearns to find his perfect match and who only wants to do right by the man who’s caught his eye
-Slightly damaged younger MC who thinks he’s not worthy enough to keep
-Just enough of an age gap and a wonderful size difference *wink*
-Hot and dirty with a touch of kink, none of which went overboard

If I had to pick one word to describe Roe Horvat’s novel Adam Only it would be intimate. Horvat cracks open and explores every motivation, every last secret thought, and strips these men bare. Within their interactions with each other and their private musings, nothing is withheld from us. And it’s all done in the most profound and reaffirming way.

When Christoffer and Adam meet at a party they’re immediately drawn to each other. Complete opposites in every way, neither man dares to dream this co

There is magic in Roe Horvat's words. I seriously don't know how he does it but every single book of his has just reached into my soul and captured it.

This one is no different for all Roe labels it erotica and pops it into a different box.

It's still a beautifully written tale of love, of finding the right person who just understands you, who knows what you need and when you need it.

Is it erotic, oh Hell yes it is.

Does it make you puddle in a pool of drool, absolutely yes.

But it's so much more

The second book in the series but also essentially a prequel to book one, Adam Only chronicles the beginning of Adam and Christoffer’s breathtaking love affair.

This story provided some damn impressive insights into the inner workings of Christoffer and Adam as characters, both of whom were previously just these mythical-levels-of-sexy side characters whose main purpose on page in book one was basically to sex-it-up with Tyler and Joel in what is officially my favourite ménage scene of

Absolutely beautiful!

Darn, what can I say?!
How does Roe Horvat do it?
To pack so much into a story?

So much expressive language.
So much brilliant writing.
So much feeling.
So much absolutely incredible, sensual and emotional sex.

We met Christoffer and Adam in The Other Book as Tyler’s best friends. If you haven’t read it, I would seriously urge you to! Not that you necessarily need it to understand what is going on here, but it’s not only another awesome read, but also introduces us to the MCs of t

So, I liked this one better than the Other Book.

It was definitely HOT. Very HOT.

A little sappy, much like the Other Book.

But an easy, enjoyable read.

I LOVED it. Quite a lot. Roe is such a great storyteller. I started the year 2019 with a whole series of books by this author. Simply because I couldn’t get enough. My favorite of all times is A Love Song for the Sad Man in the White Coat. That's because this book speaks so much to my heart.



What is it that makes Roe's stories so great? The main characters are lifelike. They feel authentic. These are characters that you could have met in real life with a little luck. And that feels so good. Why d

I loved what I saw of Adam and Christoffer’s relationship in The Other Book. But in Adam Only I couldn’t find what I expected. It was mainly sex: no plot, no romance development. Their relationship is based on sex. Repetitive, cheap-porn-like sex. They become addictive to each other. I love stories with lots of sex scenes, but (most of the time) I also want deep and palpable emotions.

The story is told from dual, third person viewpoint. This ‘thing’ between them seems unhealthy. There is a quite

What can I say about this book that hasn't already been said? Besides...



Or in this case, Hallelujah to Roe Horvat who has erotica's number. On speed dial.

Admittedly, there are several of kinks of mine on display here: size difference, bear/twink dynamic, age difference, some D/s are on offer between them and, most importantly, two men who are unabashedly into each other from the very beginning. Though Adam has some baggage that is making him cautious where Christoffer is concerned, Christoffer n

"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 ot

Roe, Roe, Roe, you've done it again. I have yet to read a book of yours I haven't loved. Adam Only is sensual, romantic- the writing is top notch.

Word to the wise though: DO NOT READ IN PUBLIC. ;)

What I love about Horvat's storytelling is that his writing is poetic. It just pulls you in and enchants you.

If you enjoy:

-Age gap
-Character driven stories
-Kink
-Size difference
-Tenderness

Then I'm sure you will enjoy Adam Only.

Should you read The Other Book first? I think so, plus, it's bloody fantast

4.5 Stars!! 💕 Loved it!!💘 Roe Horvat has fast become one of my favorite authors ever since I read "Dirty Mind". He can write M/M erotica like no other author that I have ever read. Having had a glimpse of Adam and his effervescent personality in "The Other Book" I was really looking forward to "Adam Only"😍. From the very first chapter Adam grabs the attention of both Christopher as well as the reader. He is light itself in the way he captures everyone's eyes with his dancing. His confidence and ...more

I liked the the Other Book a bit more because I didn't know the characters yet. But Adam and Chris were amazingly unique in Tyler's book so how could I have not loved them in their own book.
Roe Horvat's writing is still on point, especially in this erotica setting.
I'm already looking forward to the next release.

well...turns out they're true. This book is sexy as f**k!!! So if sex is something that bothers you or makes you squirm maybe this isn't the book for you...or maybe it is?Maybe it's time to let go of some inhibitions.

With The Other Book and now Adam Only Roe Horvat has become my go to author when it comes to M/M erotic romance.
Adam Only is the story of the 37 year old Christoffer and the 22 year old dancer Adam. They are appear in The Other Book when they already are a couple. Adam Only is the story of how they meet and become more.
Yes, there are a lot of hot sex in this book but it’s filled with so much more. The care and love between Christoffer and Adam is what shines through. They spend a weekend togethe

It might have been a mistake to read the Those Other Books Series back to back, because while I truly was impressed and pleasantly surprised by The Other Book, Adam Only read like a super indulgent self fan- service.

It was way over the top, with a trope that's been used and re-used and then used again in Erotic Romance, and I no longer like it much. I found the sex to be repetitive. I didn't feel like the story was sweet or cute at all. And while the book does deliver on the Erotic side, the Rom

Roe Horvat is goddamn magic!! The way he's able to balance eroticism with emotion is absolutely sublime. If you haven't read this author yet, you're seriously missing out!

Full review to come, but in the meantime, here's some of my favorite quotes:

Christoffer realized, this was real. He was wanted. All of him. Inside that beautiful young man. Insane, horny, dangerous young man...

With Christoffer, he was present. He didn't want to drift, he wanted to be there for every deta

FYI - I did not read the first book in this series (how did I miss it?), but feel Adam and Christopher's story works very well as a stand-alone. And apparently, the second book in the series is actually set prior to the first book, so the sequel is really a prequel (?)

In "Adam Only," Roe Horvat combines toe-curling incredibly hot and richly abundant erotic sex with a tender love story and does it well. Adam has a lithe physique and an ethereal glow about him ... although that could be the glitte

He came out as transgender in 2017 and has been fabulous since. He loves Jane Austen, Douglas Adams, bad action movies, stand-up comedy, pale ale, and daiquiri, with equal passion.
