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 10 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 Dante is nearly bankrupt and proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay-porn website where uniformed hunks get down-n-dirty… Now 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?
"I‘m not gonna let you hurt yourself anymore. I‘m not gonna let you be lonely or hurt or afraid. Ungh. Mmmph. Every part of you is mine, D. Beautiful and ugly."
HOT HEAD was my first M/M book and it was okay and all for my first introduction into M/M Romance, but it didn't quite blow me away like I expected it to. I just didn't really connect to the book as much as a lot of other readers did. I am saddened by that! But I still think it was pretty great!
"You remember the night I came to the station and kissed you? I do. "―You hit your head and you‘re not thinking straight." Griff tried to get up, but Dante squeezed him hard with his thighs. "I am definitely not thinking straight, man." Dante laughed.
Two NYC firefighters have been friends forever and they have been through everything together. But Griff has a thing for Dante and he doesn't really know how to deal with those feelings yet. I guess dealing with it might involve HotHead.com, a gay-porn website where uniformed hunks get down-n-dirty! HOT HEAD was HOT and SMEXY! I enjoyed the smexy sex!
"This", Dante gestured at him, at the mussed red sheets, and the day dawning outside. "This wasn‘t just messing around for me. I‘m already jealous as hell of the way folks look at you. After this, I sure as hell don‘t want to share you with anyone." His possessive tone was fierce and startling.
At times the book was very emotional and I love the relationship between Griff and Dante. It is like they would do anything for each other and I love that aspect of it. I Love best buds turned lovers! That's my favorite theme of M/M Romance! Something about that makes it even more hot than the fact that they're both men! Overall, HOT HEAD was a pretty good first M/M book, but it did not quite blow me away. I'll say the sex definitely blew me away though! Yummy!
