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?

    "hot and emotional "

    good naration. no characatures of Boston accents. Took awhile to get to romance but very emotional story so I didn't care. The 911 story and its general fallout on the population had me crying. The romance was beautiful and hot. I hope the Russian has his own story. will follow more from both author and narrator

    What did you love best about Hot Head?

    I read the book when it came out. It was awesome! Down to earth, sexy and a plain great read...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hot Head?

    The extras scene in hothead.. Whoa.. That was hott! The morning after in bed was a touching scene too.


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

    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.


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

    Yes but alas, life gets in the way


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Would you listen to Hot Head again? Why?

    No, but I really enjoyed it the first time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Griff and Dante are awesome characters. I really wanted their story to continue.


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

    He did the Brooklyn accent fabulously. He also did a great Russian accent. He really made all the characters come to life.


    If you could rename Hot Head, what would you call it?

    I would call it "Smoke and Fire" I actually didn't like Hot Head as a title.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Perfect story and fabulous narration!"

    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!

    "One of the hottest audiobooks ever made!"

    Griff is a big Irish firefighter in NYC in the days after 9/11. He’s always been best friends with fellow firefighter Dante, but what nobody else knows is that he’s also been in love with him, for years.

    Griff doesn’t act on his feelings, finding ways to either be with women or be alone, but every day he sees and yearns for Dante.

    Dante, meanwhile, seems to have no problem finding a new woman every night, slowly killing Griff with jealousy.

    One day Dante – whose known for his crazy schemes – comes to Griff with a money making proposition. Gay for pay porn. There’s this list of activities – from kissing to jerking off to blow jobs – each with a dollar value. Dante needs the money for the house he’s bought that is sucking up all his money in repairs. Griff knows it’s a special form of torture to get involved with this, knowing how much he wishes it were real, but he can’t say no to his best friend.

    What they find out is they have some serious chemistry together. They are HOT! Griff finds himself wondering just where the lines have gone, they seem so blurry now. He feels tremendous guilt at deriving such pleasure from the activities that he just knows Dante is only doing for the cash.

    After the shooting is done, the guys find their relationship at a cross-roads: in one direction denial and friendship at the other something amazing and more and very, very scary.

    **

    There are not enough words for me to tell you how exceedingly hot this story is. The chemistry in this is OFF THE CHARTS! Griff and Dante are scorching! But they are also tremendously sweet, tender and hysterical all at the same time. Dante is a hoot! There is nothing he won’t say or do and the stoic Griff is the perfect counterbalance to his hot-blooded craziness.

    There isn’t just one part that was amazing because all of it was fantastic. From the original jerk off scene, to the gay bashing of their friend, to the way the families handled their relationship to the lesbian photographer. It’s such a rich and deep story. So carefully crafted and sensuous. It just feels so real with the language and the emotion and the way they talked with one another.

    The Audiobook is done by Charlie David and to me his voice will always be Griff and Dante. He gives them subtle accents and scorching hot physical scenes, sweet emotional discussions and all in all is an amazing listening experience.

    I can’t recommend this enough to you. It was one of my first m/m reads and the first m/m audiobook I purchased. It’s simply fantastic and a story I’ve read and listened to numerous times and will do so again.

    "Sizzling fun"
    Any additional comments?

    Very good read. Coud not put it down and finished this book in a day. For me to do that three things have to come together 1. Well written story 2. Good narration 3. Strong likeable characters

    Where to start…
    I did not expect much going into this book. Sure I expected it to be hot and easy which is what I was looking for but I was not prepared for how well this book was written. The characters are well developed and the story flows easily and seamlessly. No part of this read felt like a filler or an afterthought. Both characters were strong and flawed in their own way. I do not understand why most of the hot romance books out there have a pushover, whiney weak heroine. I am a woman and finding it harder and harder to relate with these heroines which is why I decided to try the m/m romance genre and boy oh boy did this book deliver. It is hot with a capital H. It is a contemporary story and the dialogue reflects this very well without sounding juvenile.

    As for the characters I don’t even know who is my favourite, they work so well together. They are both alpha male and sexy as sin. It’s the best two for one offer. The chemistry is sizzling and the smexy scenes are scorching.

    One thing that absolutely sealed it for this book was the narrator. It is my first time to hear a book narrated by Charlie David and it will not be my last. In fact I have gone back and searched for all books narrated by him and already bought my next one. Charlie does not just read, he performs. He draws you in and includes you making you feel almost as if the characters are right there with you. Superb work on this one. I have to say this one performance has put him right up there with my other two all-time favourites, Sean Crisden and Sebastian York. Sigh!

    If you are looking for a fun no brains hot m/m romance that is written well, you will not go wrong with this book.

    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.

    "A brilliant story made EVEN better...."
    Where does Hot Head rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One, and it's all down to Charlie David's narration. I'm consciously looking out for stories he has narrated now....


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hot Head?

    Dante's jealous hissy fits towards the end of the story where Beth is snapping pictures of Griff for the Hot Head calendar.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Rather not say **blushes**, but the kissing scene at the fire station, sooo hot, the two making out scenes at the porn studio, and of course, the first time Griffin and Dante say their 'I love you's' and proceed to do what comes naturally at Dante's house, sighs.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both. I have the kindle version, a paperback signed by the author himself and now the audio book. There are laughs/giggles a plenty, hot tender scenes between the two guys (plenty of tears), Dante's family is amazing and the scene where Griff rescues Tommy from his hate-filled attackers is very touching.


    Any additional comments?

    In the three years I've been reading M/M, this is STILL my number one story. It has everything you could want in a book....superb!!

    "Worth listening a second time"
    Would you listen to Hot Head again? Why?

    Despite the slow start ( I actually returned this book some time ago, being too bored by the bar scene at the beginning) this is a book I would listen again. Just because it feels good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a difficult one. Can't choose. Really can't. Please don't make me.


    What does Charlie David bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I may sound like many other readers but Charlie David really breathes life into the characters and transports your right there next to them.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were quite a few moments that moved me in different ways but I suppose the Thanksgiving dinner is one of my favourites.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there are more books available by Damon Suede.

    One of my favourites, certainly enhanced by the excellent narration


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked both main characters, but for me it has to be Griff! He came across as a really likeable and genuine guy and who anyone would love to have as a friend


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    With a book this good it is hard to pick just one - so I can't pick one!


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

    It certainly was, but just not possible to do

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a wonderful story of two men trying not to let the other one know how they feel.Best friends and soul brothers - They can't be gay - two butch fireman- can they?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hot Head?

    The kiss at the firestation- OMG - one of the most erotic kisses I have ever listened too!


    What does Charlie David bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I really liked Dante and Griffin at the Hot Head studio- something different I had never read before! The narrator really made those scenes when the two guys were bringing one another off!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene where Griff found Tommy after his bashing - very moving :-(


    Any additional comments?

    Totally adored this book! I listened to it at work where I do a very boring data entry job - and have to admit it got me very hot under the collar at times! It was interesting hearing a bit about 9/11 also from fireman's POV. I will definitely watch out more from Damon and hope Charlie David is the narrator.Louise

    "Excruciatingly bad!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    One of the worst stories I've come across. The narrator does a great job with the material, but the story is entirely contrived, characters one-dimensional and all uniformly idiotic -especially the lead characters, and the setting is so far-fetched the writer hasn't even bothered to try and make it realistic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Damon Suede again?

    No


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Great Narrator - especially given the material.
