    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?

    Review
    "5+ stars... Desert Island Keeper...Hot Head is a book you will want to savour...a plot that grips you and makes your stomach ache... an unforgettable story... gritty... raw... delicious... I felt as if I was living this story rather than reading it. Highly recommended." (Reviews at Jessewave)

     "Up front, this is one of the best M/M romances I have read lately... It had that level of romanticism that makes your heart ache good... I strongly recommend this novel to all romance lovers, I'm sure you will love it as much as I did." (Elisa's Reviews and Ramblings)

    "Hot Head is not your run-of-the-mill gay romance...the hottest homoerotic sex scenes I've read, and yet...the story is about none of that and so much more than that...This book completely fulfilled all of my requirements for a 5-star romance read... If you are ready to be scorched, read it!" (Viv Santos at Queer'd Magazine)

    "Awarded the Golden Nib: for books that knock our socks off!
    Magical and beautiful even when it gets down and dirty and completely gutter-talk raunchy. A raw, emotional, very hot, worth-every-penny read. I've re-read it three times now, and it should get old, but it hasn't. That's Golden Nib worthy!" (Miss Love Loves Books)

    Selected as one of 15 candidates for Best Romance 2011 at Goodreads, the only M/M romance so honored.

    I have to agree with reviewers... I purchased this book last night! On my iPad(kindle app) I just finished it now... I couldn't put it down it was amazing I feel like I was part of their life and the love between the characters is amazing! I thought I would share icon_smile.gif

    I didnt realize homo-erotica came in book form... Gays reading seems a bit cliche.

    I'm going to buy it, because I'm like that, but your first post wreaks of you being the author and trying to drum up sales. Either that, or you haven't read anything good enough to make a proper comparison. I look forward to being proven wrong though icon_smile.gif

    I wish I was the author! I may be inexperienced with reading these kind of books... But I have read a few and it's just when I finished reading this book... I felt something inside me that made me wish I had what the characters had... Just SoOOoO! Good... Well let me know what you think of it.

    I read it over the summer, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's better than a lot of the other M/M books I've read in the past. icon_biggrin.gif

    So it's porn on paper, male edition? You get to read "throbbing member" for both sides?

    Wing-men by Ensan Case

    A World War II novel set in the Pacifica aboard an aircraft carrier. It is amilitary heavy drama with an undercurrent of man-on-man that starts out very subtle ends with love death and sex. I read this in High School - my mom bought it for me! icon_eek.gif Of course she thought it was just a war book. She had no idea icon_razz.gif

    I don't know if it counts as "romance" but I read The Front Runner off a recommendation and I was pretty pleased with it. Admittedly I was embarrassed reading what seemed like it could be the gay equivalent of one of those cheesy housewife romance novels but I got so turned on at parts, I decided I'd let it slide. Lol.

    This sounded interesting but did you just spoil the plot?

    Not much for romance books but the little bits of romance in the Tales series was kinda up my alley.

    If you're looking for just amazing gay-fiction (and easy reads!) go get Maupins entire Tales collection. It's amazing.

    Will have to look up OP book though - 5 bucks on Kindle App might make for interesting read when stuck around bigot-y relatives icon_razz.gif

    There aren't a lot of gay romance novels written by female writers that I've liked reading. Usually they get too corny, and mushy for my taste. But "To hate and to hold" by Dakota Rebel wasn't a bad book. There's a few moments when it's a little eh, but I actually liked the book a lot. One of the first gay novels I've read.

    I also liked quite a few books by Joely Skye. Lynx was one of my favorites by her and a few of her books cross over from time to time. So you get more information when you read the other books. Her books tend to deal with lycanthropes though. So if you don't like the whole sci-fi shape shifting thing you might not like her books.

    Josh Lanyon writes a lot of good books, too. His Adrien English series is focused around mystery/suspense with homosexual romance sprinkled in. It isn't very erotic, but if you like a good mystery with a gay main character it's worth reading.

    That's all I can think of for now, I typically prefer reading sci-fi/fantasy romance novels. I'm not sure if you're interested in those kind of books, but if you are let me know. I've read a few other books. A lot of them aren't worth mentioning though, but some are notable for sure. If you've read any books that you think are worth while post the titles. I could always use new books to read. icon_biggrin.gif

    At Swim, Two Boys (2001) by Jamie O'Neill

    Great writing; intriguing characters; great historical setting. (Read and get past the first 25 pages; go back and re-read them later. This book is what James Joyce should be if Joyce were actually readable with any sort of reasonable effort!) For more info, consult the Wiki entry.

    Another gay romance book I enjoyed was called "Lies and Consequences"
    by Kaje Harper. also ,it's not gay romance it's more fantasy , it's called the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan some good reads. He has 13 books in that series.

    I bought it and read it last night. It was cheezy but it left you with that sorta "aw" feeling at the end.

    If only people were that supportive though.

    I know what you mean. It is not the easiest book to read, but I got enough of the slang to manage (especially with my MacBook's dictionary widget or urbandictionary.com handy!) I found the stream of consciousness stuff harder, especially at the beginning, but the author toned it down later on. In any event, if you think this was annoying, try Joyce's Ulysses sometime if you want real annoyance!!! I dumped it about half way through. Life's too short! However, I found "At Swim..." quite worth the effort as the story enfolded!
