Hot Lava is a mystery novel set in Hawaii, and the descriptions of the scenery around these guys made me pant for a holiday, even though I share a fear of flying with Chase, one of the main characters in the story. I found it interesting that the three main characters share the limelight in this novel - without a ménage in sight.

Chase and Brandon are best friends, and as soon as I started reading, I was plunged into their personalities, especially Brandon. Brandon feels huge to me, and manages t...more

Those fans who read the utterly delightful Divas Las Vegas by Rob Rosen know that this author can write some hilarious madcap insanity. If you haven’t read the book, seriously why not and Hot Lava follows in that lauded tradition. While I didn’t laugh out loud as much with Hot Lava, nor did I end the book kissing the ground that I’d read it (like I did with Divas), the humor and clever writing combines with a lightening fast pace to produce a fun, witty, and very entertaining light sto...more
I've read three of Robs books now and loved all of them.
His sense of humor shines through each.

I was taken a bit aback from this novel since at the beginning it seemed so much similar to the previous book I read by Rob Rosen, Diva Las Vegas, that I had to go back to that book to check if maybe I hadn’t forgotten some supporting characters there who were having here their own story. Like in the previous book, a young and pretty gay man who suddenly is without a steady job; thank to a lucky cash availability he decides to spend a good share of that sum in a classy holiday with his best gay...more

I have read a few books by Rob Rosen. Just like the others, I was not disappointed by this one. Rob Rosen has a humorous way to deliver the punchlines again and again, and cheekily too. I giggled a few times, amazed by how funny he could make the conversation between the characters. I am not usually fond of men dressing in drags, but Rosen made the plots interesting enough that I would not mind much. And yeah, the plots. Not just some simple story line, but one with good twists and turns to keep...more

This light-hearted, comedic mystery will please even the most jaded of Rosen's readers. Chase and his best friend, Brandon, take off on a Hawaiian vacation with all the stops pulled out. They meet a hot Federal Agent, Will, on the plane while he's escorting a prisoner back to Hawaii. Almost before you can say Aloha, the prisoner has escaped and Chase is getting it on in a bathroom with Agent Will. The three main characters are very likable and manage to turn a two week vacation into a three rin...more

Recommended to Jimmy by: Torquere
If you’ve read ‘Sparkle’, then you’ve read ‘Hot Lava’. The main difference is the setting, and Hawaii makes a beautiful setting for any kind of story. This book is full of fun, friendship, love, and drinking. Rob Rosen establishes a decent mystery detective murder case that kept my interest and kept me reading. The dynamic duo can be a bit much all at once, but their campy hijinks are great too.
J.B. Sanders
Just as much a humorous thrill-ride as Divas Las Vegas, but also surprisingly tender and gritty in moments. Love the wry style and zippy quips. Lots of fun!
3.5 stars

Entertaining story that was at times very funny but then would drag a bit. There's a lot going on in this book and overall I enjoyed it.
