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?

    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.

    "Spectacularly Inviting"

    I finished in one day because I just couldn't get enough of Griff and Dante. This book was funny, romantic and always had me wondering what would come next.

    "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.

    "Slow start but great story evolved"

    Initially, the story was slow and it seemed to take a long time to get to the heart of it. Once it got going, though, the emotions really shined from the characters. I liked how Griff and Dante were polar opposites but ended up being complimentary to each other.

    I consider it a well written story when the gender preference is secondary to the love each character has for the other. It's about love and support and willingness to sacrifice for the other.

    This is not to say the sex scenes weren't steamy because they were!! I really liked how the author incorporated seriously steamy, hot with the emotional connection between Dante and Griff.

    I liked the author's writing and hope more is to come. Just speed up a little on the unraveling of the story.

    "This is a perfectly nice book"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a perfectly nice book, reasonably well developed story and mostly likable characters. It is understandable how this book is very well liked. I think I had misplaced expectations for this book. I was expecting something hot and fun. Instead, the first 75% of the book was filled with the inner dialog and angst that comes with a GFY story (he could never like me in that way).

    "beautifully written"

    I couldn't take a break from listening, so fascinated by this wonderfully written story of personal acceptance of love and masculinity, good hearts within the structure of an urban community filled with expectations. Very sensitively handled. Dantes voice was horribly overdone, whiny, and I truly do not believe it reflected Suede's intent. Both heroes are immaculate in their seach3s... and their destinatiin. I will listen to it again, because I am so taken by the poetry of the story.

    "My favorite m/m romance"

    I've read Hot Head a few times now but I always look to old favorites when I'm having a rough time. I've been working way too much and too hard lately, so I decided to revisit Griff and Dante in all their hot firefighter glory. The story is still amazing and the sexy times still super hot. I will say that I wish the performance had been a bit better despite how awesome the narrator's voice is. He kept stumbling over words and it was bad enough that even *I* noticed. I'm Klutzy The Unobservant. Even with the narrator throwing me out of the story a few times, I still love this book.
