Présentation de l'éditeur

Winner of One Perfect Note (Overall Honorable Mention) in the 2011 Rainbow Awards.


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?

very good dialogues and characterization, I was very surprised by this book as the story seemed quite simple at first but it was so well written that it ended up being very enjoyable, so far it is the best gay novel I've read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This one is just so original, the guys so sexy.. 21 juin 2011
Par R.Parklane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This one is a wonderful surprise. Not the usual at all. There is a raw intensity in the writing which I find captivating. So what if certain phases are overboard. It just gives the guys' story that much extra punch.

I could never resist a M/M romance firefighters story. There is just something so sensual and sexy about these hunks and they are heroes. And this is who Griff and Dante are. Like the first reviewer, I love the way the writer blend the "9-11" tragedy into their story. Griff and Dante were there and because of that these two firefighters seemed so real to me.

The story is told from Griff's POV but we get to know Dante just as well. I love both characters as they struggle with the realization that their love for one another is far beyond between brothers or best friends. These guys' chemistry is palpable, their love story intense and gritty. As for the sex,wow..

From the description I was worried the sex could be too much but how wrong I was. This is foremost about emotions, raw, intense and gritty emotions. There is a marvelous plot here from the time Griff is "adopted" by Dante's caring family, the boys blossoming into best buddies, covering for each other, Griff's struggle to overcome the painful impact of "9-11", Dante's dare devilled attitude and Griff's solid presence in his life...So much to marvel about these guys.

Oh yes, back to the sex. When it happens it just sizzles. Very hot. This is coming from someone like me who has got into the mundane habit of fast forwarding sex scenes. No fast forwarding here at all. There is that one chapter in which the writer lovingly describes one of the guy's body, posts and postures, which I find so hot and sexy. Yet there is an underlying melancholy too when one paramedic is so horribly "gay-bashed", which could easily happen to one of them. While I am satisfied with the ending, I do hope there is a sequel soon. As for the supporting characters they are just as likable from one Russian owner of "Hot Head" to one charming little girl. This MM romance is definitely a winner among the many being churned out every day.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hot Head - An unforgettable love story 18 juin 2011
Par Jessewave - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
From the ashes of 911 Damon Suede has written a novel that's raw, dialogue that's fresh, a plot that grips you and makes your stomach ache, prose that entices, and characters that are so incredibly complex, flawed and over the top you will have no doubt who wrote Hot Head because the author's fingerprints are all over every page. This book has all the elements I look for in an unforgettable story - drama, human tragedy, family, heart, guts, excitement, the unexpected, and above all, unconditional love.

Reading Hot Head I was transported to the delicious mix of the ethnic neighbourhoods in New York - Brooklyn, the Bronx, Staten Island, Yonkers, Queens - in all their decaying decadence against the glamour and glitter of preppy upscale Manhattan. The smells and different races living on top of each other trying to make a living and barely doing so were realistic and immediate and I felt as if I were living this story rather than reading it. The city was alive and the atmosphere sparkled underneath the mosiac that made up the Big Apple, but that apple had a worm at its core because of the reality that was 911.

Hot Head is a book you will want to savour. The characters are exceptionally well drawn and New York City with its beauty and flaws is a fitting canvas for Griff's and Dante's romance. Amidst all of this rich history and the daily grind of work, Griff and Dante are two men who have a new reality - they are in love with each other but in their world of firefighters that love is not welcome. Nothing in this book is predictable. The emotions are gritty and raw, the protagonists are flawed, the supporting characters are as diverse as you would ever want to meet in the pages of a book, people get hurt, the writing is mostly great even though at times it's so over the top that I had to admire Damon Suede for having the guts to dare write such prose and dialogue. But the prose is so rich and intense it made me forgive the author's excesses as he writes the way he lives, OUT LOUD!

Everything in the book is on a grand scale with no apologies. Hot Head is more than a romance. It's also part of the Twin Towers aftermath but not in a way that's maudlin. Sure, thousands died when the Towers were blown up but the book did not dwell on what is now history, it embraced it and moved on.

Griff grew incredibly during the book and evolved from the overgrown 6f5 shy, self effacing character with no self confidence into a wonderful man who knew he was loved by the one person who meant the world to him and was the core of his life. He was a contradiction because he was huge in terms of his physical proportions, but on the flip side he was emotional and needy. I could feel the heat and intensity between the protagonists because Dante was no slouch either where his feelings for Griff were concerned. He was like a bright flame that burned at both ends and Griff was the moth. Dante loved danger, embraced it without thinking about the consequences, and lived his life on the edge. However he was the one constant in Grifffs life who took care of him when he suffered from panic attacks for years.

You will love the Anastagio family, especially the parents and Dante's brash sister Loretta. There are too many characters to mention but Tommy Dobsky, a paramedic who almost died horribly in a hate crime, will break your heart, and he's coming back in the next book in the series, Hard Head.

Hot Head is entertaining, vibrant and original, the writing is fresh, the protagonists kick butt, and oh! before I forget, the sex is off the chart

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Unforgettable, Amazing Read 16 novembre 2011
Par Jennifer L. Bailey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Hundreds of reviews have been written raving about this novel. In some ways adding another to the pile may seem like a waste of space. I mean, what could I say that hundreds of other people haven't already said and likely said it better than I ever could? That would be a good question, but if I didn't write this review, I wouldn't be able to rave and gush and dance about how absolutely amazing, completely unforgettable this book is.

There are so many great things to say about this novel, that I've decided to list them, complete with numbers.

In no particular order, here are 13 reasons to read this book:

1. Griff is the perfect romantic hero. He's kind of quiet, self-effacing, with heroic tendencies who doesn't recognize his own appeal. He's generous and kind, but with enough temper and steel to keep him from coming off as week or boring.

2. "They'd all looked into the abyss and it kept right on looking back, window-shopping for damnation, it seemed."

3. Dante is also the perfect romantic hero. He's charismatic, outgoing, a little over-the-top. He comes across a little shallow on the outside, but under the facade, he's vulnerable and desperate. He's gorgeous and knows it, but has enough pain and insecurities to keep him from being gratingly arrogant.

4. The relationship is built spectacularly. From the back-story of how they met, the life-altering trauma of being working firemen during the chaos of the Twin Towers attacks, the fraternal friendship and eventually the romantic love that will change their life--it all adds up to a masterful love story.

5. Firemen are sexy. Two firemen are even sexier. 'Nuff said.

6.The writing is superb--creative, raw, unapologetic, heart-wrenching and at times poetic.

7. The pacing is perfect. Every step, every stage, builds on the one before it, until the reader is desperate to get to the next scene, the next chapter.

8. Suede builds a fabulous metaphor between the events of 9-11 and the growth of the characters. I'll add here that it is done in such a way that it does not detract from the seriousness and horrifying events of that day, but instead builds on the resilience and transformation of a neighborhood, community and country.

9. "Because people should not be punished for loving and hoping and holding their hearts open."

10. The setting is authentic. From the ethnic neighborhoods of the regular blue-collar man, to the trendy neighborhoods of Manhattan, it is New York in all it's beauty and flaws.

11. "I can't imagine doing it for your whole goddamn life. 'S'like being burned alive, lying to people you love. No wonder people become drunks and hide and hit each other. Truth. Easier to be dead inside."

12. The sex is hot! This book is by no means an erotic romance, where the story is the sex. This is a pure romance and the love scenes are about love. Whether it's the love of a friend will to do intimate things in front of a camera to help out or as two people celebrating their romantic attraction, the love scenes were so drenched in emotion and passion that it makes me yearn.

13. Secondary characters add depth and texture to an already layered plot. The Anastagio family is a riot--dramatic, exaggerated, Italian. Tommy is heart-breaking (and rumor has it Tommy will be back in a book of his very own). Alek keeps you guessing, but ultimately gives Griff the catalyst to fight for what he wants.

If you like your romances heart-felt and smokin' hot, you've gotta check this one out.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hot Head review 17 juin 2011
Par Boy Detective - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Suede plays with his readers like a master seduction artist: he turns the heat slowly until you're boiling with sexual anticipation and barely able to keep the lid on. In fact, I didn't. His characters' are violently restrained - not due to contrived plot points but due to the organically real and detailed restrictive and established world of firefighters. What elevates Hot Head, in spite of the rather banal and genre-generalized title, is, in fact, three things: 1) His well-researched, richly detailed landscape of New York firefighters, 2) deliciously surprising and playful vernacular (Suede has a delightful way of continually combining ordinary vocabulary in naughty and inventive ways), and 3) fleshing out substantial, skin, blood, and bone characters aching with emotional and sexual restraint in identifiable ways - yet maintaining the mouthwateringly exotic desirability of each character. Suede has produced a meaty, sweaty work one wants to dig into like one digs into beer and pretzels at the bar after a long day of hard labor on an empty stomach - and not a delicate gay fable refined for the plastic, Los Angeles, Cosmo-sipping set. One suspects and hopes Suede's elevated penchant for details will one day encompass other worlds apart from New York City - and certainly other time periods. Yes, let us hope this is the beginning of an exciting, well-traveled gay fiction career.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Talented author but he's using weak plot devices. 5 juillet 2012
Par Jane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
HOT HEAD by Damon Suede.

This is one of the author's first romance novels - it's gay male romance. He has a clever writing style and there are some good parts. Unfortunately he used the overused weak plot device found in weak romance novels - inaccurate assumptions to cause conflict.

CAUTION SPOILER:
Examples. (1) G thinks D doesn't love him which is false. (2) When D tells someone he loves G. G hears part of that conversation, runs away, and avoids D for many days. G misunderstood and thought D was disgusted with him. (3) G assumes D is going to stop their friendship for another reason, so again G avoids D. But that reason was not true. (4) Even after they have sex, G assumes D does not desire G. I did not enjoy this constant denial and avoidance by G.
END SPOILER.

I want conflicts based on an interesting plot with good plot development - not "I think he doesn't like me so I'm going to run away."

There are some good sex scenes - some hot sex scenes. The author used many different terms for a man pleasuring himself which I found wacko and entertaining, for example, burp the worm and polish the knob. I enjoyed the scenes with the photographer and other scenes with Tommy who was beat up. The entire book was Griff's POV. I would have preferred a modified plot and some of Dante's POV. But I assume the author didn't want to do that because the main mystery is not knowing how Dante felt.

The first third of the book was slow. There was too much time spent with Griff depressed and mourning the 9/11 disaster. That's almost another story. I would have liked that part shorter.
