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:, 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?

When I first saw the description for this, I laughed. Really, a firefighter who has to help his friend make porn because the mortgage is overdue? It sounded like such a setup. This is my formal apology to Damon Suede. I was ignorant. I saw the light, and Hot Head will always stand as the romance novel that sold me on reading romance novels.

SO if you have not read it, you should know that Hot Head is a gorgeously written exploration of the grief that is unrequited love - and by love, I mean actual, full-fledged love developed over a decade, not a crush, not infatuation. Firefighter Griff Muir loves his straight coworker and best friend Dante Anastagio, the man who got him through anxiety, depression, and divorce after they both worked the horror of 9/11. There's literally nothing Griff wouldn't do for Dante. So when Dante needs Griff's help to save his beloved fixer-upper, and Griff can't come up with a better solution, Griff agrees to twist the knife in his heart just a little bit more by doing a porn video with Dante.

For a book about two big, tough guys, this is one of the most emotional romances I have read so far. Watching Griff struggle to move on from the stuck-ness of his personal life while also working to figure out who he is if he loves Dante... oof. So much going on here! Possibly the best first kiss scene ever, too, and a happy ending that's to die for.

This was my first M/M Romance and I loved it! Of course, I'm a sucker for friends - to - lovers romances as anyone who follows me knows. The reason it's not a 5 is only because once Griff and Dante got together, I was NOT a fan of Dante's possessiveness - easily my least favorite type of man in romance. Ugh. But the rest was fantastic and if you're looking to try a M/M romance, I'd recommend this novel! It's quite steamy and I'd probably actually term it erotica.
