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?

Wonderful performance and emotionally satisfying

Where does Hot Head rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best novels I've ever listened to, in any genre. I have several scenes bookmarked and will listen to them again.

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

I'd read the Boy who Came In From The Cold. I hadn't been super impressed then, but that was a bit of an annoying book to begin with. This one is MUCH better, and I was blown away by his performance.

Who do you call when the fireman are on fire?

Griff and Dante my,my what a pair. This is not a lightweight M/M romance but romance is indeed what it is. This listen can get a little heavy but as other reviewers have said the banter between the two friends can lighten it up quickly. Griff is long suffering but don't sympathize he handles it well. He is not a push over except when it comes to Dante. Dante is that really good friend to lots of people and the one everyone wants to be around. Him and his Italian family just swallow up Griff into their lives. So when Dante needs a favor from Griff he can't refuse him and doesn't really want to. And here they come with the hotness, sexiness and steaminess.

Hearing Charlie David before is the reason I listened and he did a wonderful job. Very good writing from Damon Suede I will look into other titles by him.

A must Listen

What did you love best about Hot Head?

Charlie David is one of the most amazing narrators out there. He makes you feel like you right there in the middle of everything. You can visualize each character, what they look like, what actions are taking place.

What did you like best about this story?

I can't say that there is just one thing. I loved every little thing detail and thing about this story.

Which character – as performed by Charlie David – was your favorite?

My favorite would have to be Griff for sure. I just see a personal connection and understanding with him.

If you could take any character from Hot Head out to dinner, who would it be and why?

It would definitely have to be Griff. His personality, loving heart, shyness, romantic and passionate self, let alone the physical traits of being a ginger and big beefy guy is just what I like.

Any additional comments?

I've listened to this book at least 5 times and each time I do I end up wishing that it was made into a movie because I'd love to see it put into an actual visual watching version.

Searingly HOT.

What made the experience of listening to Hot Head the most enjoyable?

This was my first audio book experience ever. And my initial review was not great. HOWEVER, I have listened to this audio since, and feel like I should not be so "hard" on it. <br/><br/>'Hot Head' is a "gay for you", sweet and sexy m/m HEA. Was it a great story? Well, no. But it was a love story set around firefighters after 9-11. So, some of the descriptions and flash backs were touching and tough to swallow. (in a good way)<br/><br/>The narrator Charlie David did a NY accent in female and male voices like a champ. The very extended scene towards the end of the book where the two firefighters finally "ENAGAGE" is amazingly hot and narrated to point of me feeling like I am in the room with the two gents. Yea. It was steamy.<br/><br/>Cheers to Charlie David for making this book a 4 star rating.

Great storytelling on every level

Any additional comments?

Confession: I love Charlie David. <br/>Confession pt2: I love Damon Suede. <br/>Sure, the guy is put on a pedestal in the MM romance genre, but this book deserves the accolades. <br/>Charlie David's narration for this one is intense. His voice is dreamy, very sexy, intense, and his voices for each character are spot on. The sex scenes - of which there are many, and they are LONG - are read with the sort of passion and excitement that you want from this type of story. <br/>I'm not going to give any spoilers, but the storytelling itself was great, even if the pacing wasn't. I feel like Suede could have done with a more heavy-handed editor... at over 10 and a half hours this is the longest audiobook in my collection, and it does drag in places. <br/>Despite this, it's a story I keep coming back to - for the narration, for the romance, and for the story.<br/>Do yourself a favour and believe the hype!

YES!

This was a FANTASTIC story! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Not only was the story good but the narrator was phenomenal. We all know how a bad narrator can make listening to an audiobook painful. Charlie David made listening to this book a real pleasure.
