I’m not sure why I liked this book so much. Honestly. Actually, thats a lie. Damon Suede created engaging characters and the question of HOW were these two strapping, gorgeous men going to find love with each other? He kept me guessing all the way up through about 80% on my kindle.

It was a 3.5 star book with some awesome characters. But they were just a tad unbelievable, and I had a hard time with Griff just doing anything *and I do mean, anything* for Dante. (example I embellished) "Hey Griff? I'm short on cash, but I found this awesome website for porn, you know? And they will give us wicked cash if we like, have sex with each other... and since we are so close and all, I figured it's all good, so I signed us up. You cool with that?"

Meanwhile, Griff Muir, a hot ass Irish firefighter, is in love with the man-slut that is Dante, his best friend. So he's all "Woe is me, I can't believe I'm doing this, and holy hell I'm almost like, fucking my best friend *awesome* but he can never know how I really feel about it, because dudes, that would be all like weird--or something, but S'okay, cuz it's like, Dante you know?"

However, so saying, I found Griff's inner machinations to ring true, or at the very least, how I think a man in the closet would feel. Conflicted, emotional, unsure, upset, and scared. I really loved Griffin as a character, even though his extended {har de har} vocabulary did get on my nerves. Every description was too colorful when it came to masturbation, or talking about cocks. There must have been 50 different ways to say masturbate in Hot Head.

Dante was the quintessential suave Italian hetero male, who was everybody's friend and every woman's fantasy. His family was awesome. I loved their interactions.

It was third person limited. We only get what Griff is feeling, and I wish we had also had some time in Dante's head. (ha, ha, ha I'm so fucking funny!) Right?

It was an enjoyable read, and it's a great introduction to the male-male genre.

I will read more by Damon Suede. He has a certain suttin, suttin, that kept me reading, long into the night.
