The Temptation of Adam: A Novel by Dave Connis

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. He goes because he has to, but the honesty of the Knights starts to slip past his defenses. Combine that with his sister’s out-of-the-blue return and the attention of a girl he meets in an AA meeting, and all the work Adam has put into being fine begins to unravel.

Now Adam has to face the causes and effects of his addiction, before he loses his new friends, his prodigal sister, and his almost semi-sort-of girlfriend.

I enjoyed reading this whole book, at first I was a bit confused as to where the story was actually going to go, but I did end up liking the progress. I thought the storyline was set up in a very unique way. I enjoyed the author’s writing style and the way each character was portrayed. I loved the way the book was about many different relationships, such as friendships, family, and romantic relationships. Adam is such a complex and interesting character. I liked that we didn’t know right away why he was suspended, but everything was laid out in a wonderful way. I thought it was interesting that Adam used equations to try and make sense of tough situations going on in his life. I loved the scenes that Addy was in, I thought she was funny and had awesome advice for Adam. I also enjoyed the way addiction was broached within Adam’s family. Overall I thought the book handled some very sensitive topics in a very respectful way. I feel like if you are a big fan of Perks of Being a Wallflower you will really enjoy this book. I thought it had the right amount of each relationship portrayed.
