Category: Erotic Romance
At a Glance: This little slice of erotica is a nice insight into Christoffer and Adam’s relationship, and while I wouldn’t say it’s an absolute must-read in order to have enjoyed the other two books just as much, it is a profoundly sexy glimpse behind the closed doors of characters we already know and love.

Blurb: It’s been more than a year since Adam first stayed over in Christoffer’s home. Their home. In the safety of Christoffer’s love, Adam has gained strength and confidence. So when Christoffer’s friend Tyler crosses the line, flirting outrageously and forcing his shameless self onto them—even into Adam’s dreams—Adam can easily handle him. To Christoffer’s great amusement, Tyler’s mind gets blown.
Review: Readers of Roe Horvat’s Those Other Books series will understand how aptly titled this story is. Before Tyler fell in love with Joel Sandstrom—when it was only supposed to be about the sex—he was overtly lusting after his best friend’s boy. Not in a deceitful, underhanded, trying to come between them way, but in a way that suggested he might be more than a little envious of what Christoffer and Adam have together. The love, the trust, Adam’s near worshipfulness of Christoffer, Christoffer’s dominance and Adam’s unequivocal submission, Christoffer being inarguably worthy of Adam’s love and trust. Altogether, it was enough to push Tyler a little too far into Adam’s discomfort zone, but not in a way that it might affect some others.
It’s not that Adam can’t fathom Tyler in his and Christoffer’s bed. He just needs it to be in his own time and on his and Christoffer’s explicit terms. That’s what this short story is about—negotiating and drawing specific lines in the sand, and then watching it all play out in a voyeuristic way.
Clocking in at a scant thirty-eight pages, the word count is devoted to mediating the provisions of a threesome and then fulfilling the erotic outcome of the mediation. Adam’s utter obedience to and trust in Christoffer, and Christoffer’s uncompromising love and care for his boy, allows for them to welcome Tyler into their bed—not as an equal partner but to satisfy Adam’s needs and fantasies. Some readers might not find a lot to relate to in this vignette, but to those who are open to the idea that a meeting of desires and the contentedness that comes from knowing that you’re loved safely and unconditionally comes in different packages, this story defines romance.
This little slice of erotica is a nice insight into Christoffer and Adam’s relationship, and while I wouldn’t say it’s an absolute must-read in order to have enjoyed the other two books just as much, it is a profoundly sexy glimpse behind the closed doors of characters we already know and love.
