My Goodreads Review LinkAdam Kingsley reigns as the young prince of Manhattan. Everything he touches turns to gold, making him the envy of Wall Street. Women swoon at his feet, money falls out of his pockets, and his killer good looks are as wicked as sin. A dangerous trifecta.
What more could a thirty-two-year-old man wish for? Maybe that his life never changes and his past stays far away? Sounds reasonable, but life seldom is.
Kathryn Delcour is a beautiful and alluring socialite with unique erotic tastes. When she suddenly appears on the New York City social scene, Adam finds her too tempting to resist. He has to have her, but she is warned to stay away from him and his player ways. She tries her hardest to keep him at arm's length, but Kathryn's arms may not be strong enough to hold Adam at bay.
Hidden secrets, Kathryn's passion for an ancient sexual practice, and a former business partner wanting to inflict a deadly revenge set the scene for a wild ride as Adam tells the story in his own words.
Reviewers Note: Adam’s Apple is book one in the Touch of Tantra series and is an Erotic Contemporary Romance/Suspense written by Liv Morris. I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review through Tasty Book Tours.
3.5 Sizzling Stars!
Touch of Suspense, Touch of Tantra and a Touch of Fun!
I enjoyed this book. It opens with a very somber yet intriguing Prologue that immediately grabs you. However, the few chapters are a bit slow, which took me a while to get through because I just couldn’t get into it. Then around the mid way point, it takes off and completely stuns me with its sexy, provocative words and its tantalizing and suspenseful plot. Overall, it was a pretty good read.
Adam Kingsley is a self made man. Graduating from MIT, he along with three other friends form their own company, with Adam as the money man. He’s successful, intelligent and handsome but he’s also self-serving, completely arrogant and a total man whore. He has the whole bad boy down to an art form and doesn’t feel the need or desire to apologize for it. He loves the finer things in life and thinks he deserves them. But he’s also very closed off. His past has hardened him and his walls are very thick.
Then one night at a fundraiser, while out on the prowl, he meets the one woman who can bring him to his knees, literally.
Kathryn Delcour is a sensual, beautiful and intelligent woman who knows what she wants in life. She’s kind but takes no prisoners in her flat out honesty policy. She’s a strong, resilient woman who isn’t a wilting flower. I loved this about her and best of all, she can see past all those walls Adam has built and she wants very much to break through them. She’s also a teacher in the fine arts of Tantric and knows how to handle a man like Adam through sensual touch.
Adam is desperate to know Kathryn but he’s also leery of her methods. However, he can’t stay away and when they come together, they have amazing chemistry! Then there’s the bit of mystery and suspense lurking behind the scenes as a killer is on the loose which only enhances this read more.
I didn’t like Adam at first. He was so full of himself and the thoughts he had and his way of thinking really put me off, but once you get to know him and understand him, you realize its all a front. He’s suffering from loss and disparity and he needs Kathryn to level him out. One a brighter note, I loved this book was written entirely from Adam’s POV. I love a male POV, especially if its written well and this was!
The Wrap Up:
The beginning of this book was a bit slow but towards the middle to the end, things were moving right along. It was a bit predictable, because I could see the “why’s” of Simons revenge plot from the moment we learn he was after Adam but the predictability didn’t take away from the enjoyment. Just to warn you, there is a cliffy, which I hate but I liked this one well enough that I will definitely be picking up book two when it comes out!
