Hot Head | [Damon Suede]

Hot Head

Since 9/11, Brooklyn firefighter Griff Muir has wrestled with impossible feelings for his best friend and partner at Ladder 181, Dante Anastagio. Unfortunately, Dante is strictly a ladies’ man, and the FDNY isn’t exactly gay-friendly. For ten years, Griff has hidden his heart in a half-life of public heroics and private anguish. Griff’s caution and Dante’s cockiness make them an unbeatable team. To protect his buddy, there’s nothing Griff wouldn’t do… until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty.

    "Damon Suede is a hit!"
    What did you love best about Hot Head?

    I read the book when it came out. It was awesome! Down to earth, sexy and a plain great read...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hot Head?

    The extras scene in hothead.. Whoa.. That was hott! The morning after in bed was a touching scene too.


    Which character – as performed by Charlie David – was your favorite?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but alas, life gets in the way


    Any additional comments?

    I love you too. Like, I thought I'd die from it..
    Awwww

    "Both Fun and Emotionally Touching"

    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.

    Would you listen to Hot Head again? Why?

    No, but I really enjoyed it the first time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Griff and Dante are awesome characters. I really wanted their story to continue.


    Which character – as performed by Charlie David – was your favorite?

    He did the Brooklyn accent fabulously. He also did a great Russian accent. He really made all the characters come to life.


    If you could rename Hot Head, what would you call it?

    I would call it "Smoke and Fire" I actually didn't like Hot Head as a title.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Perfect story and fabulous narration!"

    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!

    Any additional comments?

    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 can't get G and D pout of my head!!!"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I'm actually planning to buy the kindle version in Spanish! I wouldn't listen to it again though.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    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!


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The one at the station, when D is trying to convince G to go along with him to Alek's office.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I'd love to have a romantic dinner with Griffin.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    It's a great story, I really hope it gets the attention the of some producer and makes it into a film.

    "Hot Head - Just Plain Hot!"
    Would you listen to Hot Head again? Why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first time Griffin agrees to perform with Dante.


    If you could rename Hot Head, what would you call it?

    Hot Head - Burning Down the House

    Where does Hot Head rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favourites, certainly enhanced by the excellent narration


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked both main characters, but for me it has to be Griff! He came across as a really likeable and genuine guy and who anyone would love to have as a friend


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    With a book this good it is hard to pick just one - so I can't pick one!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It certainly was, but just not possible to do


    Any additional comments?

    A great story with excellent narration by Charlie David

    "Too hot to handle at times!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a wonderful story of two men trying not to let the other one know how they feel.Best friends and soul brothers - They can't be gay - two butch fireman- can they?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hot Head?

    The kiss at the firestation- OMG - one of the most erotic kisses I have ever listened too!


    What does Charlie David bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I really liked Dante and Griffin at the Hot Head studio- something different I had never read before! The narrator really made those scenes when the two guys were bringing one another off!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene where Griff found Tommy after his bashing - very moving :-(


    Any additional comments?

    Totally adored this book! I listened to it at work where I do a very boring data entry job - and have to admit it got me very hot under the collar at times! It was interesting hearing a bit about 9/11 also from fireman's POV. I will definitely watch out more from Damon and hope Charlie David is the narrator.Louise
