[Review] The Temptation of Adam – Dave Connis (+ Author Q&A and Giveaway!)

Book Title: The Temptation of Adam (Standalone)
Author:     Dave Connis
Number of pages:  224

Synopsis:

Adam Hawthorne is fine.

Yeah, his mother left, his older sister went with her, and his dad would rather read Nicholas Sparks novels than talk to him. And yeah, he spends his nights watching self-curated porn video playlists.

But Adam is fine.

When a family friend discovers Adam’s porn addiction, he’s forced to join an addiction support group: the self-proclaimed Knights of Vice.

Should this book be picked up? the tl;dr review:

– YA fiction about porn addiction. C’mon now.
– Tackles various issues: addictions (sex/porn, substance use, etc.), sexual assault, divorced households, race relations
– Setting feels very normal (in a good way) and isn’t overly flourished
– Both character-and-plot driven; pacing is slow early on but picks up midway through

Initial Thoughts

Plot aside, Nic Stone was the catalyst for me in reading this…

…I also apologize for this gratuitously long review and Q&A.

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of Temptation of Adam from Thomas Allen & Son.

This Week’s Theme:
Fall 2017 TBR

Initial Thoughts:

Here we are again, TBR List That I Will Never Follow.

What I read now typically follows the releases as they come live so this is my anticipating reading schedule based on ARCs and my random mix of “pleasure reads” (which you can denote by the fact that it’s already released).
