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.

    Do yourself a favor and fast forward through the first 4:30 to five minutes of this book to avoid Charlie Davis trying to sing. I found that annoying and painful,

    Story
    "Eh."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Hmmm.....where to begin....it was cute, I guess, but the pining went on waaaay too long for my taste. I am not all about that slow burn.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I guess I thought the idea of doing porn with the person you're secretly in love with was interesting, but the way it actually played out was not at all satisfying. I mean, they have sex (basically) in front of a camera and then don't talk about it at all? What even. A lot of the book felt really one-sided and it just dragged on too long.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The pacing was alright....


    Do you think Hot Head needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Er, no. I think pretty much everything was summed up.


    Any additional comments?

    Besides the plot, my problem with this book was the narrator. I had a hard time differentiating between the characters and who was speaking, and I hate when I have to go back and re-listen just to figure out who is saying what. It was a little frustrating and I probably won't listen to it again.

    Story
    "Genitaliia by any other name...."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Damon Suede’s story?

    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).


    What didn’t you like about Charlie David’s performance?

    Overacting. Spoke too loud or too soft in some scenes.


    What character would you cut from Hot Head?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Hot and intelligent? Say it isn't so."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


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

    I would have to say Dante, because you could easily hear the New York all over his voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Is it getting hot in here?


    Any additional comments?

    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?

    "Dang Mr. Suede!"

    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.

    Story
    "A Totally Satisfying Listen!"
    What made the experience of listening to Hot Head the most enjoyable?

    The story unfolds with such ease and at a very unhurried pace. It is like a favorite meal -- familiar but still satisfying and delicious.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The writer's careful attention to details and the masterful development of the characters, especially Donte and Griff, make this story especially irresistible.


    What about Charlie David’s performance did you like?

    Charlie David's warm baritone is very easy on the ears and his voicing of the two main characters is very convincing.


    Who was the most memorable character of Hot Head and why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    The love scenes are vivid and yet tastefully handled. Although fewer than in many other m/m stories, they will leave you SATISFIED!

    "Perfect!"

    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.

    "What a great Love story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hot Head to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print but I so enjoyed the Audio


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

    That is hard to say, I laughed and got choked up all the way through the book.


    What about Charlie David’s performance did you like?

    He was great...perfect for the story


    Who was the most memorable character of Hot Head and why?

    D of coarse arrogant little Spaghetti Eater and of coarse I love men in Kilts


    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "Fervidly Provoking"
    Would you listen to Hot Head again? Why?

    Charlie David + Damon Suede...enough said.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dante Anastagio - Damon nailed the Sicilian Italian man. I found myself thinking "How did he know that!'


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

    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!


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

    The scene Griff barreled into a burning building to save Dante.
