What is it about firemen that rings the bell for gay men? Could it be the strong arms and chiseled jaw, the bulging muscles under sweaty tees and tight red suspenders, or the cool calm as they use their hoses to put out the flames?

Firemen are sexy ~ it’s as simple as that. They are strong and tough, wielding heavy uniforms and risking life and limb to fight fires. This anthology brings together seventeen stories with a common theme but each has a very different approach.

The stories are all seriously erotic and cover a wide range including stories that are touching, thought provoking, off the cuff, or just plain crazy.

Not firefighters will be referred to as NF in this review (
Great variety. Quite a lot of stories that simply weren't my thing (infidelity, dubious consent, BDSM), but the few that were I enjoyed.
