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?

    "Perfect"

    This is a gay man's romance. It has the right balance of sweet story, erotic detail and endearing characters. Many "gay" romances are straight romances with the gender of the characters changed. This is not!

    Suede has member interests of men in mind. The descriptions are perfect. I can see and feel Griff and Dante. The development of the situation is so tantalizing and the families so real. I want to be a part of the Anestazio family. Best friends become... well you must read this book!

    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
    "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.

    "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.


    What other book might you compare Hot Head to and why?

    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


    Any additional comments?

    Damon, where's the next installment!?

    "A great story"

    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.

    "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
    "Buyer beware... listen to the sample first."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Unfortunately, no. I barely even got past the 1st chapter before going back to another book already listened to from my library. I'm giving the story a 3 because it very well could be a decent one, but I'll never know because I just can't get past the monotone, lacklustre narration. Within the first 10 minutes or so, there's a conversation between the main character, described as a 6'5" muscle bound firefighter, and a beautiful Indian woman and there was absolutely no discernable difference whatsoever in their voices. Voices aside, the story itself was also read in such a flat tone, completely void of inflection, that I found my mind wandering repeatedly. And yet, I had absolutely no interest in rewinding to see what I may've missed. Perhaps I've been spoiled by the talents of my favorite narrator, Greg Tremblay, but even at a 50% off sale price, I'm extremely disappointed that I spent real money on this audio book. Lesson learned....I will never again buy an audiobook based solely on other's reviews. I will always check out the sample first.


    If you’ve listened to books by Damon Suede before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't read/listened to any other Damon Suede books, but I would be willing to give another a shot with a different narrator.


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

    There was little to no difference between character voices (with the exception of one with a Russian accent) and there was no inflection or 'life' given to the story. BORING. I have other books in my wishlist with the same narrator that I will review the samples of first (who knows.... maybe his heart just really wasn't in this one or maybe it's an early career performance & he's more skilled now), but will most likely just be removing.


    Could you see Hot Head being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I couldn't get far enough to even get to know the characters, so I honestly have no idea.


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously... go check out some stuff by Greg Tremblay. You won't be sorry. I can't promise the same for this performance.
