reading with a coffee in my hands
I read the book when it came out. It was awesome! Down to earth, sexy and a plain great read...
The extras scene in hothead.. Whoa.. That was hott! The morning after in bed was a touching scene too.
Since I read it before I had my own "voices" so was a bit afraid to listen. Charlie David did a great job. Not exactly what I had in mind but it became Dante and Griffin as the story began.
Yes but alas, life gets in the way
I love you too. Like, I thought I'd die from it..
The emotional struggle that almost becomes tiresome is saved by moments of lighthearted banter and very hot sex scenes. Overall that performance was very good and the story is great. Worth buying.
No, but I really enjoyed it the first time.
Both Griff and Dante are awesome characters. I really wanted their story to continue.
He did the Brooklyn accent fabulously. He also did a great Russian accent. He really made all the characters come to life.
I would call it "Smoke and Fire" I actually didn't like Hot Head as a title.
This was a great story. The only thing that annoyed me is that the angst goes on a little to long. At one point I just wanted to slap both MCs. But the payoff is worth it!
I read this book and loved it but then bought the audio version because I heard rave things about Charlie David's narration and I wanted to check it out!
I still love the story - two tough and gorgeous firefighters and Griff's secret love for his best friend Dante. It has it all - heroics, heartache, hot porn, passion, Griff in a kilt and sexy Dante!
And Charlie David's narration definitely does complement the telling of the story beautifully. At first I was worried that the story would be somehow diminished if the narration did not live up the expectations set by my own reading, but I was not disappointed at all. I loved the sexiness of Charlie's voice, his accents, tone and pace, all of which captured the character and spirit of the book perfectly.
If you are looking for a good book to read, particularly if you are after an audiobook, then Hot Head is highly recommended!
I'm a 25 year old mum to my beautiful nearly 2 yr old daughter and i LOVE books , both reading and listening to them :D
i thought it was well writing and you really get to know the main characters , plus its a very steamy read !!
Dante and Griff are both great characters but i thnk i dante a lil better the italian stallion lol and loved the Anastagio family .. classic !
loved it! he did a fantasitc job with every character very very easy to follow and listen to!
defferenty would recomend this book to readers if you don't mind gay sex scenes , becuase its a great story !
Very good read. Coud not put it down and finished this book in a day. For me to do that three things have to come together 1. Well written story 2. Good narration 3. Strong likeable characters
Where to start…
I did not expect much going into this book. Sure I expected it to be hot and easy which is what I was looking for but I was not prepared for how well this book was written. The characters are well developed and the story flows easily and seamlessly. No part of this read felt like a filler or an afterthought. Both characters were strong and flawed in their own way. I do not understand why most of the hot romance books out there have a pushover, whiney weak heroine. I am a woman and finding it harder and harder to relate with these heroines which is why I decided to try the m/m romance genre and boy oh boy did this book deliver. It is hot with a capital H. It is a contemporary story and the dialogue reflects this very well without sounding juvenile.
As for the characters I don’t even know who is my favourite, they work so well together. They are both alpha male and sexy as sin. It’s the best two for one offer. The chemistry is sizzling and the smexy scenes are scorching.
One thing that absolutely sealed it for this book was the narrator. It is my first time to hear a book narrated by Charlie David and it will not be my last. In fact I have gone back and searched for all books narrated by him and already bought my next one. Charlie does not just read, he performs. He draws you in and includes you making you feel almost as if the characters are right there with you. Superb work on this one. I have to say this one performance has put him right up there with my other two all-time favourites, Sean Crisden and Sebastian York. Sigh!
If you are looking for a fun no brains hot m/m romance that is written well, you will not go wrong with this book.
I'm actually planning to buy the kindle version in Spanish! I wouldn't listen to it again though.
From the very beginning it traps you and doesn't let you go! I liked G's story and how he was so close to the Anastagios. They loved him so much! It's so incredible that someone so hot and handsome as Griff doesn't even know he is. D is also an incredible character. They do make a great team!
The one at the station, when D is trying to convince G to go along with him to Alek's office.
I'd love to have a romantic dinner with Griffin.
It's a great story, I really hope it gets the attention the of some producer and makes it into a film.
Yup. I love the story and I love Charlie David as a narrator. It's heart warming as well as hot.
Frat House Troopers. The main characters are good friends who work together and one of them has to perform in porn videos although for different reasons.
The first time Griffin agrees to perform with Dante.
Hot Head - Burning Down the House
Damon, where's the next installment!?
Not the best but acceptable.
Kellen Lutz = Griffin Muir
Justin Baldoni = Dante Anastagio
I liked it!!
The narrator needs to dial down on his acting. There were times when he grossly over-acted certain dialogue, and times when the changes in the volume of his voice just got irritating. When an author writes that a character 'shouted' I don't need the narrator to actually SHOUT. When a character 'whispers', I don't need the narrator to whisper the dialogue. Why? Because then I wouldn't have to keep adjusting the volume on my listening device.
The overuse of onomatopoeia and metaphors for male genitialia/ejaculation/masturbation. Also, my personal pet peeve... Outlandish adjectives. He kept describing Dante's mouth as a medium rare color. Later on they were 'wine stained'. His eyes are 'scarab black'. His hair is raven black. I almost felt like this was written by Ms Perky (you know that Guidance Counseler Romance Author Wannabe character from 10 Things I Hate About You).
Overacting. Spoke too loud or too soft in some scenes.
Griff's cannon. Griff's meat. Dante's medium rare lips. No seriously, they were mentioned so many times they might as well have been characters.
I hear there a sequel. For the love of all that's holy, stop writing the sounds as text. I don't need to see or hear 'scritch scritch' when someone scratches something. I don't need to see or hear 'thump' when someone's listening to someone's heartbeat. And I definitely do not need to see or hear CLICK FLICK CA-CLICK CLICK each time a character snaps a photo. Damn that photoshoot scene was annoying with all those CLICKS.
