Adam’s Apple by Liv Morris 1

Uniquely told in Adam’s point of view. Warning: Contains adult situations intended for readers eighteen and over.
“I take cocky, rich boys like you and teach them how to make love to women until they’re barely able to mutter a word. Completely and utterly blissed. That’s really what separates the men from the boys, Mr. Kingsley. Sex as an art form versus f**king for a release.” – Kathryn.

Adam 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 is no object, and his killer good looks are as wicked as sin. A dangerous trifecta that allows him to possess anything or anyone he desires.

What more could a thirty-two-year-old man wish for? Maybe that his life never changes and his murky past stays far away… Sounds reasonable, yet life seldom is.

Kathryn Delcour is an alluring socialite with unique erotic tastes who helps others find true sexual fulfillment. When she suddenly appears on the New York City social scene, Adam finds this complex woman too tempting to resist. He
will stop at nothing to have her, yet she is warned to stay away from him and his player ways. Kathryn tries to keep him at arm’s length, but her arms may not be strong enough to hold the charismatic Adam Kingsley at bay.

The passionate lure of ancient sexual practices, a past that isn’t content to remain buried and a present filled with intrigue, danger and revenge. An erotic story sweetened with secrets, seduction, and suspense
Bottom line: if a book has a subtitle with the word “Tantra” in it, it’s an automatic read.  My spidey smut sense never lets me down, and it certainly didn’t here.
This book is told from Adam’s POV.  He’s a wealthy, privileged and educated guy.  He gets what he wants, and what he wants is Kathryn Delacour.  Can Adam change his ways and really take the plunge with only one woman?
Well, holy cow.  This book was sexy.  If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey and its intensity, I think you’d really love this book.  I almost wished I had this in paperback so I could make notes in the margins of the sex scenes, because they were noteworthy.  Oh yes.  I’m nearly afraid now that all future book smut will pale in comparison to this for me.
I really liked that the story is told from Adam’s POV.  I don’t think that it would have been as good if told from Kathryn’s.  Adam’s voice is original, and getting inside his thought processes was one of the strengths in the writing of this book.  I also really liked Kathryn’s character.  She totally puts Adam, a man who is not used to hearing the word “no”, in his place.  She’s witty and smart and most importantly level-headed.  She did not get on my nerves as women in these types of books tend to.  She’s a strong female character and I appreciate that.
The plot was also quite surprising.  While there was plenty of sex to keep me happy, this book also had a solid and intriguing plot that kept me guessing. My only complaint with this story is that it seemed a bit slow in parts.   However, it picked up steam at the end.  I’m totally dying to get my hands on book two of this series!  Bring it!  A 4 star read for me!
