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?

reading with a coffee in my hands
I read the book when it came out. It was awesome! Down to earth, sexy and a plain great read...
The extras scene in hothead.. Whoa.. That was hott! The morning after in bed was a touching scene too.
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.
Yes but alas, life gets in the way
I love you too. Like, I thought I'd die from it..
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.
No, but I really enjoyed it the first time.
Both Griff and Dante are awesome characters. I really wanted their story to continue.
He did the Brooklyn accent fabulously. He also did a great Russian accent. He really made all the characters come to life.
I would call it "Smoke and Fire" I actually didn't like Hot Head as a title.
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!
i thought it was well writing and you really get to know the main characters , plus its a very steamy read !!
Dante and Griff are both great characters but i thnk i dante a lil better the italian stallion lol and loved the Anastagio family .. classic !
loved it! he did a fantasitc job with every character very very easy to follow and listen to!
defferenty would recomend this book to readers if you don't mind gay sex scenes , becuase its a great story !
Not the best but acceptable.
Kellen Lutz = Griffin Muir
Justin Baldoni = Dante Anastagio
I liked it!!
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.
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!
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.
