Dragon Fire (Wild Fire Series Book 1) by Wolf Specter

dragon fireBlurb

Ancient dragon shifter and arson investigator Liam Morgan has fought against his instincts to take a mate and sire a child for centuries, but now his dragon is fighting back. When a new case puts him face to face with an insanely attractive officer who sports a dragon tattoo, it’s all Liam can do to resist the urge to claim the man as his mate.

With a serial arsonist on the loose, Shane McKenna finds himself turning to Liam to help solve a case that could finally give him the respect he deserves.

But he never expected to find a much-needed kinship with the stoic scientist. And he definitely never expected to dream about Liam in a way that leaves him questioning his sexuality… and craving the touch of one very specific man.

As their case–and their relationship–heats up, Liam can’t fight the powerful force that draws him to Shane.

But claiming him has dire consequences. When an old enemy threatens to once again destroy everything Liam holds dear, he’ll stop at nothing to protect his mate and their unborn child.

Dragon Fire is a standalone novel with a HEA ending, a satisfying epilogue, and NO CLIFFHANGERS!

Content Warning: This book is a first time gay for you / straight to gay romance. It contains explicit, unprotected love scenes and male pregnancy, or Mpreg. Adults only shifter romance!

Review

Liam lost his love centuries ago and has been fighting his dragon side recently to find another mate. Dragons who go without mates too long can become dangerous to themselves and others, but Liam isn’t ready for another mate.

Shane is just a police officer assigned a potential arson case who happens upon the sexy shifter. Shane, up until this moment, has always identified as straight. Sure, he’s lonely, involved in a bad “relationship” with a woman using him to get to his brother, and unhappy with his family – but interested in a man? He’d never thought that he would be.

The oracle is supposed to pick Liam’s mate… what happens if that person is Shane? What happens if it isn’t?

Shane and Liam have a super-hot chemistry with one another. The back and forth between these guys is played just right.

There is a bit of a mystery and the fun of a true dragon battle extraordinaire and… it’s mpreg! Wooot!

I was very pleasantly surprised by this. It was very well written, had some complex characters and plot and the smexy times were as hot as I’d hoped for.

I highly recommend this to shifter fans, especially of dragons and mpreg.

FAST Balls (Balls to the Wall #5) by Tara Lain

F.A.S.T. — Firefighter Assist and Search Team

Firefighter and surfing champion, Jerry Wallender, looks like a hero to the world, but he can’t see it. He keeps falling for these intellectual guys who end up making him feel dumb and unneeded. On top of that, Mick Cassidy, super-gorgeous firefighter and total homophobe, makes Jerry’s life miserable with his slurs. Then one day Mick’s nice to Jerry and, at the Firefighter’s Ball, Jerry offers a helping hand and ends up with a hand-job. What the hell is going on?

Mick Cassidy is great with fighting fires and solving math problems but rotten with people. Raised by a gay-hating preacher, Mick’s carefully constructed world of gay bashing starts to crumble when he meets Jerry, the nicest, kindest man he’s ever known. Mick’s never wanted a woman and can’t stop thinking about sex with Jerry. In fact, he can’t stop doing it. Does that make him gay? And if he’s gay, what happens to his whole life? A hook-up between sweet Jerry and mean Mick might be total disaster — or the smartest idea Jerry ever had.

Review

Jerry is a simple guy, a sweet-heart who woks for the fire department, tries to find love with guys who he thinks are too smart for him, but still has a great outlook on life. And he loves to surf.

Mick is a unique soul raised by strict parents in a sort of cult who has near genius math skills but very few social skills. He’s at first a ridiculous homophobe who lashes out at anyone remotely gay, but at home secretly loves porn with big dicks.

Something about Jerry draws Mick in and he can’t help but admire the guy who seems to always act the hero, but never get a swollen ego.

Eventually Jerry and Mick become friends. Jerry helps Mick to bend his brain around the idea that he might be gay and in fact might really be attracted to Jerry himself.

Jerry has always found the bigoted guy hot, even if he drove him crazy. When Jerry finds himself in a life or death situation, Mick has to make a brave call that ends up driving them together and forces them to act on their smoldering attraction.

**

I love this series by Tara Lain! All of the guys in these stories are unique and special and Jerry and Mick are my most favorite!

Mick’s gentle self-discovery and Jerry’s constant support are really touching. Though the cult thing threw me at first, it really kinda fits and I love how Mick’s mom doesn’t act like you think she would.

All the books in this series are smokin’ hot, but the love story really is the main thing, and each one ends in a way that makes you think of forever.

Though this is only one book in the series, I highly recommend the entire group and this one in particular. You don’t have to read them in order but it does give it a bit more depth as the MCs play recurring roles.

Hot Head Audiobook by Damon Suede Narrated by Charlie David (Review)

hotheadaudBlurb

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

Griff is a big Irish firefighter in NYC in the days after 9/11. He’s always been best friends with fellow firefighter Dante, but what nobody else knows is that he’s also been in love with him, for years.

Griff doesn’t act on his sexuality, finding ways to either be with women or be alone, but every day he sees and yearns for Dante.

Dante, meanwhile, seems to have no problem finding a new woman every night, slowly killing Griff with jealousy.

One day Dante – whose known for his crazy schemes – comes to Griff with a money making proposition. Gay for pay porn. There’s this list of activities – from kissing to jerking off to blow jobs – each with a dollar value. Dante needs the money for the house he’s bought that is sucking up all his money in repairs. Griff knows it’s a special form of torture to get involved with this, knowing how much he wishes it were real, but he can’t say no to his best friend.

What they find out is they have some serious chemistry together. They are HOT! Griff finds himself wondering just where the lines have gone, they seem so blurry now. He feels tremendous guilt at deriving such pleasure from the activities that he just knows Dante is only doing for the cash.

After the shooting is done, the guys find their relationship at a cross-roads: in one direction denial and friendship at the other something amazing and more and very, very scary.

**

There are not enough words for me to tell you how exceedingly hot this story is. The sex in this is OFF THE CHARTS! We’re talking fuckvideos levels here, Griff and Dante are scorching! But they are also tremendously sweet, tender and hysterical all at the same time. Dante is a hoot! There is nothing he won’t say or do and the stoic Griff is the perfect counterbalance to his hot-blooded craziness.

There isn’t just one part that was amazing because all of it was fantastic. From the original jerk off scene, to the gay bashing of their friend, to the way the families handled their relationship to the lesbian photographer. It’s such a rich and deep story. So carefully crafted and sensuous. It just feels so real with the language and the emotion and the way they talked with one another.

The Audiobook is done by Charlie David and to me his voice will always be Griff and Dante. He gives them subtle accents and scorching hot sex scenes, sweet emotional discussions and all in all is an amazing listening experience.

I can’t recommend this enough to you. It was one of my first m/m reads and the first m/m audiobook I purchased. It’s simply fantastic and a story I’ve read and listened to numerous times and will do so again.
