    5 eternally burning stars. Review edited February 29, 2016Where there's smoke, there's fire.Thoughtful. Passionate. Emotional. Evocative. Raw. Just…beautiful.I read Hot Head for the first time back in 2012 and distinctly remember that a certain part of the blurb put me off. It's the part about the gay porn website. However, don't let this little detail deter you from reading this fabulous story. Besides, the porn-formance part is bl...

    FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED :)***I LOVE GRIFFIN MUIR*** That is all :)I know he's got red hair but that picture was just perfect!I have a HUGE stupid grin in my face every time I think about this book. Why did it end? :(Griff & Dante are besties, they work together as firemen, madre mia, we don’t have those firemen in Spain!. From the beginning of their story we know Griff is confused about his feelings for Dante. He doesn’t know if he is gay but ...

    "I love you,Dante Inigo Anastagio.You'll never know how much." Yes,I was so,so afraid that Dante will never know how much Griff loved him.I was afraid that Dante will never know what he meant to Griff.Readers let me introduce you to Griffin and Dante---The world's greatest idiots who are AMAZING, ADORABLE,extremely HOT firemen and just plain BEAUTIFUL!!Polar opposites of each other and yet linked together in an intangible way.Griff had been broug...

    I don't know where to start with this review... First - In my country there are NO hot firemen. Nope. They don't do calenders cause most of them are old lol if there were hotties like Griff and Dante, I'd set my own tree on fire just to have them come to the rescue Second - Before I start with the story and all, I have to say the writing style was something new for me. I mean, I'm pretty good at english, have no problems reading books writte...

    ”It's impossible to be your own hero, yes?” 4.5 Stars My not so interesting M/M history I remember about a year ago when I started noticing many of my GR friends latching onto the M/M fanclub, I mentioned it to my husband and said something to the effect of, "I wonder what all of these women get from two guys together?" And after wrinkling his nose in disgust, he replied, "Well, guys fantasize about two girls together..." to which I wrinkled ...

    This is my first foray into the male/male romance genre. One of my GR friends has long been trying to convince me to try this so I told her to choose me a book and this is one she selected. I like to think that I’m an open minded reader and reviewer and I’ve been looking forward to stepping onto pastures new.I told my husband I was about to read a gay romance between two New York firefighters and he gave me a look of unmitigated horror. “Wh...

    Unapologetically sentimental.By turns elegiac and blunt—with the occasional breathtakingly beautiful turn of phrase. By no means a perfect novel, it's still rich with symbolism, and compassion, and searingly hot sex.It's pretty silly, but in that fun way you can really get into when the mood's right.Above all, it is at its heart a very, very romantic story, and one whose imagery will stay with me for some time.Also: hot firemen. So—y'know—t...
  • Monique
    I want a special button to give books more than five stars!!!I have had to really sit down and think about writing this review, as I don't know if my words could ever do this book or Damon Suede's writing justice.......and HELL YES, it really is that good. In fact it is the best m/m book I have read so far. When he wrote this book, he must have been feeling it from the heart...I know because I felt every emotion, from raw and deep, to sweet and e...

    I think I'm gonna make a new shelf called:"awesome-breathless-could-not-put-down-5stars-pure-perfection-books-recommended-by-the-mighty-blacky"...I must admit that this was my first M/M romance book and I didn't know anything about it when I started reading it, I didn't know how would I feel but after reading it there is only one word for it: “PER-FUCKING-FECTION!” THE STORYFrom blurb: Dante is strictly a ladies' man, and the FDNY isn't exact...
  • Gigi
    My FIRST M/M romance and a MUST READ for gay romance fans. 1 America dollar! There is no excuse not to read this. BESTEST!ORIGINAL REVIEWThis is the FIRST M/M romance I read. I read it because it had a huge rating at and I figured it had to be pretty good. Well, it has a huge rating for a reason and got me desperately hooked on the M/MN romance genre.I haven't looked back since.

  • Rachel Reads Ravenously
    4 stars! This book?Like oh my god you guys. If the gifs didn't make it clear this book was on FIRE. I love GFY stories, and this was a double GFY. For some reason this MM story had never come my way, until a friend recommended it to me. This book was a fun escape from reality, the beginning was a little bit too slow for me, but by the end I couldn't put the kindle down.I may have also been using the fire emoji a lot when discussing this book.

    What can I say about this awesome book, that hasn't already been said in all the amazing reviews posted by my GR mates? Well nothing much, just that it's all very I'll keep this simple.It will BLOW YOU AWAY...with its smexy scenes.Keep you reading... Till you drop...Might even be some pantie changing...Let's not forget the most important...the hot ginger man in a kilt....Who has dirty thoughts about his cocky Italian best friend...Ohhh ...
  • Christy
    This was a really beautiful love story to me... The classic best friends to lovers (which I love) with a twist. Griff was awesome! I really loved him. I wasn't so sure about Dante in the beginning he seemed a little cocky (which he was a little) but by the end I loved him as much as Griff. Their story was really touching (view spoiler)[ Seriously when Dante made his confession to Griff I cried happy tears. It was so perfect.. (hide spoiler)] I al...

    I've had Mr. Suede on my radar for some time now—well, I'll be honest. After he gave a glowing review of Double Blind, calling it better than Special Delivery, he had Randy's attention, because Randy has a soft spot for people who like his book better. Now that I knew his name, I kept seeing it on lists and in various corners of the Internet. Then I saw him give an interview, and I saw he had a book.Randy was intrigued. Especially when he saw t...

    So I've been reading this again...and again...and again... Well, from Chapter 15 onwards only.This is one of my MOST FAVORITE M/M ROMANCE BOOK TO DATE.Dante & Griff is one of my MOST FAVORITE M/M ROMANCE COUPLE TO DATE too!Griff is one of my favorite MCs. I love how he pines for Dante and his inner struggle with his feelings. He's this big, really hot guy but doesn't think of himself that way. He's humble and has a big heart.(view spoiler)[When t...
  • Kelly (and the Book Boar)
    Find all of my reviews at: haven’t read a lot of M/M – mainly because the porny librarian must be the straightest straight that ever straighted and doesn’t have a lot of them up for request. Hot Head was always available for request, but I avoided it so I wouldn’t get drawn and quartered in the town square if I ended up disagreeing with all of my GR friends. But guess what?????? I read the shit out of t...
  • Heather C
    This book was so fuckin' HOT...and SWEET!! I have no idea why the hell I waited so long to read this! Maybe I heard too many mixed opinions? Or maybe I thought it was all porn because the MCs involved themselves in porn? Wow, how surprised am I?!! This was a LOVE STORY! Not porn!!  A love story between two best friends, Griff and Dante.  I wouldn't even say there was a lot of sex.  Every scene was important to the progression of the story. ...
  • Heather K (dentist in my spare time)
    FOUR VERY HOT HOT HOT STARS!WOW! This book was just as hot as it was promised to be. I had my kindle glued to my hand so I could read this all day long! The chemistry and the vibe were just scorching.Don't even get me started on my giant Scottish man fetish. It is like Damon Suede jumped in my head and stole my thoughts! Hot DAMN! Now if Griff just had an accent...Why not 5 stars? I found the fact that neither of them knew the other was into them...
  • Trix
    This story varied between 3 stars and 2 stars. And towards the end, almost dropped to 1 star but for the benefit of the whole book, I chose 2 stars.Griff seemed to me a most unbelievable character. Who in their right mind would think their best friend would jerk off and blow you for money? Despite numerous evidence to the contrary, Griff had only one tune: 'He doesn't love me. It's wrong to have these feelings for him. How can I stop myself?' And...
  • Riverina Romantics
    I'm gunna be honest. That picture above has nothing to do with any of the scenes in Hot Head, but has a whole heap to do with how I felt while reading it. HAWT DAMN did I love this story. Loved it, loved it, loved it. I'm relatively new to the m/m genre, but I've read a couple and I am not ashamed to admit that the guy on guy scene really cranks my chain. But this book went above and beyond my expectations. Holy sex on a stick Batman, these guys ...
  • Bev
    ***9/7/15. This is still my favourite M/M story, and I just wanted to say that the audio book for this story is superb. Charlie David's narration isn't mono-tonous unlike some other narrators I've listened to, and he makes the sex scenes between Griff and Dante come alive.....let's just say if you were a fly on the wall, you'd have swooned and fainted, the visuals and imagery were puddle of goo making.***I really loved this book. All of the chara...
  • Denise H.
    ***** OH MY GOSH !!! This incredible story is amazing !! ***** You must read it ! It's not your ordinary M/M romance, it's GFY, and it is much MORE ! Beautifully written by Damon Suede, with deeply thought filled characters, an engaging unusual tale, and super hot sexy loving. Loved, Loved, Loved these men and all of the ancillary characters, too. This beautiful novel is rated "One of the Top Romance Novels of ALL Time", and it certainly is. We h...
  • Mary
    Griff has a big heart and it's been bleeding for his best friend Dante for 10 years. What's more, he doesn't think he's gay, but the only person who heats his blood at all, man or woman, is Dante. Add onto that the fact that Dante needs quick money and thinks they should do porn together- it's a train wreck. The two firemen are inseperable, attached at the hip and all Griff wants is more. But how can he even think of wanting that with all he coul...
  • LenaRibka
    AudibleI was surprised how much I enjoyed this audio book. I don’t know if the result would have been the same if I had read it and not listened to it. But this narrator!…Well, Charlie David did it pretty good, and his voice is as sexy as he looks like. YES! I checked his profile, because I wanted to know what books he narrated, to add them to my audible list. Unfortunately he didn’t narrate a lot that I would like to read, but maybe I’ll...
  • Lenore
    What a powerful story! I fell in love with Dante because Griff loves him in such a beautiful, almost tender way, without expecting anything in return. Everything for his "brother", who somewhere along the way became the love of his life. Not that he's not a looker, Dante. With his raven black curls and his midnight black eyes and his olive skin and his muscled body. Same goes for Griff by the way. The kind-hearted red-haired giant. How can you no...
  • Dia
    I'll start by saying 195 of my GR friends have read this. Wow! Well I feel like I found this one a little too late. I'm sure I would have enjoyed it way more if I would have read it a while ago. These past months I was super busy and unfortunately I had so little time left for myself, and also for reading. And to be honest, I don't know why but I just can't seem to fall head over heels in love with the books I read. I miss unique stories... I mis...

    Before “Hot Head” by Damon Suede was published, there was a lot of buzz in virtual space. This was a “first” book by a man who describes himself as growing “up out-n-proud deep in the anus of right-wing America, and escaped as soon as it was legal. He says he has lived all over: Houston, New York, London, Prague, with a few long stretches in New Orleans and Vienna. Along the way, he’s earned his crust as a model, a messenger, a promot...
