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?

Good story, poor sound engineering/editing

Story was enjoyable, but various sound issues distracted from the overall experience. Some chapters were whisper quiet and difficult to hear even with ear buds and volume maxed out. And it needed a better editing...there were long unnecessary pauses between some sentences, there were a few lines repeated like the narrator was redoing the line, and several times you can clearly hear some sort of electronic notification beep in the background, like the narrator got an email while recording.

Amazing story!!

I absolutely loved this book, I feel like this is a story of romance for anyone. Such a refreshing and uplifting story of love. I finished this book in 2 days and was hooked!!! The only negative was that at times it was difficult to tell which character was speaking because the narrator didn't differentiate as well as he could have. But this is still worth the listen, I promise you will love this book.

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

This is one of my most favourite books and I have reread it many, many times. This is only my 2nd audio book, but it was time for a re-read and it was on sale, so here we are.

Charlie David does an AMAZING JOB! The voices were clear and you can definitely see his acting talent shine through. The banter between Griffin and Dante is hilarious and I found myself laughing out loud more than a few times. Like pause and fan myself, kind of job! This book has some super sexy scenes, and hearing them read, the emotion and anticipation comes through so deliciously! I think I had to pause a couple times and let my blush settle!

BUT, my most favourite thing and the part that amazed me the most, is that the book was interpreted in a different way then me! I read this book so many times but hearing it now, the humour is so much lighter, and the angst feels so much less angsty (this is a very good thing for me). This was always one of my comfort reads and when I thought I couldn't love this novel more...audibles happens!

Loved this one!!

Have you listened to any of Charlie David’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first Charlie David performance and I'm hooked. His narration of this book was absolutely incredible. He was funny, steamy, smoldering - the perfect storyteller for this genre. I'm looking for other books now that he narrated.

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

No only because I'm not able to do that. Only have time to listen when I drive but if I could have I would have.

Any additional comments?

There were certain scenes in this book that I just had to re-listen to, and that isn't typical for me. Once the book is over, I'm usually done with it. But this narrator - OMG - I couldn't get enough of it. He took a good story and elevated it for the listener into a real performance.

A bit drawn out.......

I do feel like the story was a bit drawn out however it did make up in the action portions 😁. The storyline is a bit different from the other books like listen to with this catagory. Overall the book and narrative are decent. the only thing that's annoying is the music at the beginning of each chapter.

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.
