Krystle's Thoughts - Adam's Apple by Liv Morris

Adam's Apple
-Liv Morris


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 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 however 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.

Intended for mature audiences. 18+ An 87,000 word love story.
I just want to start out by saying W-O-W! The cover of this book is what initially attracted me to it, very sexy, and then when I read the blurb... I knew I was hooked. It was a very sensual, fun, fast paced read that I didn't want to put down. The fact that it's also told thru the Hero’s perspective is also very neat, different than what I've read lately.

You start off by learning about Adam, the Hero, and how he's this big pompous New York City Playboy. Women flock to him by their knees; they give - he receives. Seems that's the way hes lived his life for years. Recent events have turned his life upside down though, due to one of his college friends Simon, and also business partner deceiving him and the company they both built (along with 2 other friends from College). Suddenly, Simon has all of this hatred and lashes out towards Adam, and he has no idea why.

Then, Adam meets Kathryn. A widowed Tantra teacher with a doctorate in psychology, who has the demeanor of Scarlet O'Hara from Gone with the Wind. I loved her immediately, also loved how the author threw in that she is a Vanderbilt. The Anderson Cooper bit had me rolling. She's a very strong, take no crap from anyone kind of woman who's trying her damnedest to keep her distance from Mr. the surly Mr. Kingsley, but the more he pursues her, he himself begins to change for the better, and she can't help but fall for him.

I loved everything! It had all of the essentials for me, 2 people from different worlds finding middle ground to be with each other. All of the characters were very fun and realistic, Ms. Morris did an amazing job for her debut novel! I will definitely recommend this to friends (as I've done so already) and can't wait to read more from her.

Notes I made -

-I like how in this story the Hero's driver wasn't also his super almighty powerful bodyguard. Like in some other books I've read, that character seems to be able to do it all. When Kinglsey actually DID have to have a bodyguard, he hated it and it was hilarious. “Goliath” - Ha!

-I'm totally going to use the line “Who blew sunshine up your ass” now – I've never heard that, it's great LOL.

Kathryn huffs as she looks at me with daggers in her eyes, likely plotting my death” - Adam


I think who I am today has everything to do with you, and actually nothing to do with me” - Adam

The author makes it so easy to fall in love with him, it'd be great if we all had an Adam.
