The Temptation of Adam
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.

In relation to the book, Dave Connis has also released an ALBUM titled Looking for Eden

"Looking For Eden is an album written in correlation to the young adult book, THE TEMPTATION OF ADAM (TOA) by Dave Connis. The album is a compilation of songs written by the very fictitious Colin Cratcher, the mentor of the main character, Adam Hawthorne, in the book." - Dave Connis

You guys, I am currently reading The Temptation of Adam (as I put this post together) and it is amazing. Colin Cratcher is definitely a memorable character, so I am loving the idea of this album!

Here are some lyric samples for you:


But when I see a small hallelujah to fill the emptiness of space
I think “cynic” is a name you can leave out in the rain (Track 1 - Drowning in Eden)

I’m not looking to kill. I’m not looking to bruise
That’s just what happens when I move I’m not looking to hurt.
I’m just looking for love In mirrors, wrong places, with a wasteland heart (Track 4 - Beast of Nashville)

I want to love you with abandon. Like I love myself
So take my mirror, darling, and scatter it like rain
My reflection is earthly and I want it to change (Track 6 - Love You With Abandon)

There’s redemption in our wastes.
A ceremony of dust and grace
A mess of lov
 A perfect mess of love (Track 8 - Mess of Love)

She came and loved me when she could’ve changed me
And I married her for that A ceremony of dust and glory.
We moved and never looked back (Track 12 - Dust to Cradle)

I write words you can sing and words you can read. I live in Chattanooga, TN with my wife, Clara and a dog that barks at non-existent threats.

When I'm not writing YA or MG, I'm probably working really strange part-time jobs, and doing other things that actually give my family the ability to eat food. I'm a member of the Jedi Counsel, and I have a propensity to daydream when ever I attempt to be an adult.
