I think that was another type of an Adam story. I needed some time to accept the other personality of Adam you described. As most of the fans I also like his soft character. BUT... sometimes I wished he would be a little bit more aggressive. And his thoughts about desire and passion - YES that's what we want to read :-)
Very well written, interesting, different and exciting. I'm curious about the sequel.
I'm glad you liked seeing this side of Adam; in the series, we only had small peeks at his dark, passionate side and how much more interesting it would have probably been to PR if he was able to expose some of Adam's flaws more often. If you liked seeing Adam as passionate and a bit cruel, when you have a long afternoon stretching out and the time, you may enjoy, "Frailty, thy Name is Woman." Some readers didn't care for this portraya,l but I felt it was true to Adam as a man--not as Mr. Perfect.
Thanks for reviewing. : )
