Publisher's Summary

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.... 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. And Dante wants them to appear there - together. Griff may have to guard his heart and live out his darkest fantasies on camera. Can he rescue the man he loves without wrecking their careers, their families, or their friendship?

    "Surprise, there is actually a good story!"

    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.

    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.

    perfect amount of romance and sex appeal. wish it wasn't "straight" guys falling in love but even that is played as under current feeling that have always been there. one of my favorites.

    Story
    "One of the hottest audiobooks ever made!"

    Griff is a big Irish firefighter in NYC in the days after 9/11. He’s always been best friends with fellow firefighter Dante, but what nobody else knows is that he’s also been in love with him, for years.

    Griff doesn’t act on his feelings, finding ways to either be with women or be alone, but every day he sees and yearns for Dante.

    Dante, meanwhile, seems to have no problem finding a new woman every night, slowly killing Griff with jealousy.

    One day Dante – whose known for his crazy schemes – comes to Griff with a money making proposition. Gay for pay porn. There’s this list of activities – from kissing to jerking off to blow jobs – each with a dollar value. Dante needs the money for the house he’s bought that is sucking up all his money in repairs. Griff knows it’s a special form of torture to get involved with this, knowing how much he wishes it were real, but he can’t say no to his best friend.

    What they find out is they have some serious chemistry together. They are HOT! Griff finds himself wondering just where the lines have gone, they seem so blurry now. He feels tremendous guilt at deriving such pleasure from the activities that he just knows Dante is only doing for the cash.

    After the shooting is done, the guys find their relationship at a cross-roads: in one direction denial and friendship at the other something amazing and more and very, very scary.

    **

    There are not enough words for me to tell you how exceedingly hot this story is. The chemistry in this is OFF THE CHARTS! Griff and Dante are scorching! But they are also tremendously sweet, tender and hysterical all at the same time. Dante is a hoot! There is nothing he won’t say or do and the stoic Griff is the perfect counterbalance to his hot-blooded craziness.

    There isn’t just one part that was amazing because all of it was fantastic. From the original jerk off scene, to the gay bashing of their friend, to the way the families handled their relationship to the lesbian photographer. It’s such a rich and deep story. So carefully crafted and sensuous. It just feels so real with the language and the emotion and the way they talked with one another.

    The Audiobook is done by Charlie David and to me his voice will always be Griff and Dante. He gives them subtle accents and scorching hot physical scenes, sweet emotional discussions and all in all is an amazing listening experience.

    I can’t recommend this enough to you. It was one of my first m/m reads and the first m/m audiobook I purchased. It’s simply fantastic and a story I’ve read and listened to numerous times and will do so again.

    Loved the story. And the narrator was great.
    But I absolutely hated the little music jingle at the start of each chapter.

    "An absolute MUST buy/listen! "

    This is one of those stories on my rererereread/rerererererelisten list. A prefect best friend to lover, low angst, high love and heat factor. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. The narrator does a brilliant job on this one. Read with passion, fun, and you can feel the love between the two mains. Well well done.

    "A brilliant story made EVEN better...."
    Where does Hot Head rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One, and it's all down to Charlie David's narration. I'm consciously looking out for stories he has narrated now....


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

    Dante's jealous hissy fits towards the end of the story where Beth is snapping pictures of Griff for the Hot Head calendar.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Rather not say **blushes**, but the kissing scene at the fire station, sooo hot, the two making out scenes at the porn studio, and of course, the first time Griffin and Dante say their 'I love you's' and proceed to do what comes naturally at Dante's house, sighs.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both. I have the kindle version, a paperback signed by the author himself and now the audio book. There are laughs/giggles a plenty, hot tender scenes between the two guys (plenty of tears), Dante's family is amazing and the scene where Griff rescues Tommy from his hate-filled attackers is very touching.


    Any additional comments?

    In the three years I've been reading M/M, this is STILL my number one story. It has everything you could want in a book....superb!!

    Story
    "Worth listening a second time"
    Would you listen to Hot Head again? Why?

    Despite the slow start ( I actually returned this book some time ago, being too bored by the bar scene at the beginning) this is a book I would listen again. Just because it feels good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a difficult one. Can't choose. Really can't. Please don't make me.


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

    I may sound like many other readers but Charlie David really breathes life into the characters and transports your right there next to them.


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

    There were quite a few moments that moved me in different ways but I suppose the Thanksgiving dinner is one of my favourites.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there are more books available by Damon Suede.

    "The Heat Is On"
    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

    "Excruciatingly bad!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    One of the worst stories I've come across. The narrator does a great job with the material, but the story is entirely contrived, characters one-dimensional and all uniformly idiotic -especially the lead characters, and the setting is so far-fetched the writer hasn't even bothered to try and make it realistic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Damon Suede again?

    No


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Great Narrator - especially given the material.
