I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I was totally SLAPPED! All in my face... I couldn't believe there was a actual story here. I thought I was going to get some m/m erotica and then Wamp! Totally love story... and I loved it. The beginning was a little slow for take off, but around like chapter 3 or 4, the storyline picks up and stays that way til the end of the book. G is just sooo adorable that you cannot help but to fall completely in love with him and D, well, his whole personality makes him HOT. A real HOT HEAD! Perfect title to describe D. G is the most def the reasonable one, but D... he so mischievous that you just love him. GREAT GREAT!
This was my first Charlie David, and I really liked him. I think I will search for more David books, and see what I luck up with.
This is a great story of two firefighters who survived 9-1-1 and who could start as many flames as they put out. I love an intelligent story and cheering for them and groaning over the missed opportunities of our heroes.
I'm a big Griffin fan. He's thoughtful,intense, and I love his inner voice, plus I'm a sucker for the big red-headed good guys.
I would have to say Dante, because you could easily hear the New York all over his voice.
Is it getting hot in here?
Suede needs to do a sequel. Send them to another city for long term training. Let them go on a well-deserved vacation. Send them to me... where was I?
This was an amazing book. I've heard he is writing another about the little paramedic from this one, and I'm excited for it. The characters are wonderful, the relationship has great tension. The intimate parts are out of this freaking world. And Charlie David reads the stuffing out of it. After this, I'm looking for everything he reads.
The story unfolds with such ease and at a very unhurried pace. It is like a favorite meal -- familiar but still satisfying and delicious.
The writer's careful attention to details and the masterful development of the characters, especially Donte and Griff, make this story especially irresistible.
Charlie David's warm baritone is very easy on the ears and his voicing of the two main characters is very convincing.
Both Griff and Donte very quickly worked their way into my heart. They are complex and realistic depictions of two men with different personalities (as different as their physical characteristics) but who deeply love and admire each other.
The love scenes are vivid and yet tastefully handled. Although fewer than in many other m/m stories, they will leave you SATISFIED!
This was one of the most erotic, enjoyable and painfully cute stories I have read/listened. There is such a raw authenticity to the plot that most of the gay stories out there can't grasp. Although I was miffed over a couple plot holes, you really can't deny the power of this sweet story.
I haven't read the print but I so enjoyed the Audio
That is hard to say, I laughed and got choked up all the way through the book.
He was great...perfect for the story
D of coarse arrogant little Spaghetti Eater and of coarse I love men in Kilts
I like to through all types of Genre in my reading but I must admit Gay love stories warm my heart
Charlie David + Damon Suede...enough said.
Dante Anastagio - Damon nailed the Sicilian Italian man. I found myself thinking "How did he know that!'
Charlie added an extra dimension to Hot Head. I feel like I had an amplified experience listening to this audio book over everyone else who has just read the book. His cultural accents were spot-on!
The scene Griff barreled into a burning building to save Dante.
The audio edition is better because of Charlie David's performance. His voice is a good fit with the characters and he's able to speak the different accents, from Jersey to Russian.
Although they're of different milieu, but as of quality, I would rank it among the top of my favorite books with "Something Like Summer" by Jay Bell.
Dante has this loud, and expressive character yet vulnerable. He's my favorite character as performed by Charlie David.
I love the giant redhead, Griff's quiet strength. And who would not be turned on by the description of his anatomy?
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I wasn't expecting much because of the title "Hot Head". I found it tacky but after finishing the book, I see why it was named as such.
The characters were very likable.
"Cut and Run" by Abgail Roux
The kiss in the shower at the fire house
The narrator could have performed the characters a bit better. There were a few times in the book that I could not tell the voice a part to determine who was talking.
At the top
Griff - I can relate to his feelings and longings for someone he thinks he can never have.
He has an incredibly sexy voice! I loved how he made me feel like he was talking in that sexy voice to me, when he was voicing the different roles. Also, he performed the sex scenes to perfection!!!
Yes, this book made me very happy, even through the sad parts. I longed for Dante right along with Griff, and when the book was finished, I was so sad it was over. Now I just go back and listen to my favorite parts again!
Don't let the somewhat corny name fool you. This is an excellent romance novel for anyone that is gay or LGBT-friendly. I wish more straight people would read this book, to empathize with what gays go through every single day.
