3,5 for the story upgrade to 4 because I would like to seeof the guys. Starting with the cover, which is about as gorgeous as it is hot, this book pulled me in Of course, as soon as I started reading, the cover and everything else were quickly forgotten, as my fascination with the characters took over As common as closeted men may be, they are not easy to write, and Andrew Grey did a great job at capturing these guys essence in the story What they go through is not easy, and it takes them a while to figure out what is really important For me, that made the boo Starting with the cover, which is about as gorgeous as it is hot, this book pulled me in Of course, as soon as I started reading, the cover and everything else were quickly forgotten, as my fascination with the characters took over As common as closeted men may be, they are not easy to write, and Andrew Grey did a great job at capturing these guys essence in the story What they go through is not easy, and it takes them a while to figure out what is really important For me, that made the book and the story all thereal.Dirk is described as an asshole, and in many ways he is However, he is not an irredeemable one He is not a man who would kick puppies or steal from you, he is, after all, a very committed fire fighter who saves lives every single day, a man who will risk his own life to rescue a baby from a fire when it seems impossible No, his assholeness is of a subtler kind, which makes it muchinsidious and difficult to fight He is emotionally insecure, totally repressed, has denied who he is for years, and is, basically, very unhappy Rather than try to work things out, he uses his anger and fear to push others away Extremely successful at this, his colleagues recognize his professional abilities, but his personality causes a lot of friction and makes them think of Dirk as an asshole Honestly I cannot blame them Lee is the complete opposite He is friendly, outgoing, has good relationships with his colleagues, and has only one problem he is attracted to Dirk Dealing with someone who is in the closet as deeply as Dirk is tough, and Lee, being the loving man he is, suffers a lot He also does not take sh t from Dirk, and stands up for himself and his needs very well I think that helps Dirk, in the end, admit who he really is Who could withhold himself from a gorgeous, amazing man like Lee The scenes between Dirk and Lee are intense, extremely hot, and when they do finally make love the depth of their emotions flares up to new heights My only regret While the ending of this book was emotionally very satisfying, there is lotsthat can, and I am sure will, happen I cannot wait for the next volume to be published so I can find out what else happens in Dirk and Lee s lives One thing I am sure of is that it will be just as intense and wonderful as the initial stages we got to see in this book If you like fire fighters, men who struggle with their identity both sexual and otherwise , and if emotionally intense and, ultimately, rewarding relationships are your thing, you will probably love this book as much as I did.NOTE This book was provided by Dreamspinner Press for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews @Free ð Il fuoco della redenzione ó Dirk Krause un bastardo di prima classe Pu solo prendersela con se stesso se la sua vita un disastro, e invece non perde occasione di rendere l esistenza degli altri un inferno Il suo caratteraccio lo rende odioso persino ai medici e alle infermiere dell ospedale dove viene ricoverato in seguito a un incidente durante una missione anti incendio e, naturalmente, nessuno dei suoi colleghi si prende la briga di andarlo a trovare Lee Stockton l ultimo arrivato alla stazione dei vigili del fuoco e gli viene affidato l incarico di visitare Dirk in ospedale e portargli dei fiori a nome della squadra Lee capisce subito che tipo Dirk e che il suo atteggiamento un modo per tenere lontani gli altri, e fa di tutto per spingerlo a cambiare Quando i due passano dalle liti al sesso, la loro relazione far scintille, o si lascer dietro solo un pugno di cenere Can t even finish this Even if the guy is a total douche bag, a firefighter was injured on the job People are there waiting to make sure they wake up and help with recovery There would have been flowers and other firefighters, wives, all sorts of support Yes even to assholes because next time the person who barely or doesn t make it out could be you or your spouse Then Lee comes in and he s a bigger prick then Dirk is supposed to be even though our only proof of this is no visitors, which i Can t even finish this Even if

supposed to be even though our only proof of this is no visitors, which is stupid I bought this because I was in the mood to read some sexy firefighter lovin I got about half way and gave up I didn t need to hearcomplaints about closet cases Enjoyed this enough while I was reading it, but it s not really something that I can see myself wanting to revisit or reread again I think my main problem was the narrator narrative voice just didn t connect much with him or the flow of his voice That said, firemen yay, and the love interest, Lee, was a sweetheart. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Stalled at 39%I m not sure if this is DNF for me or not, but I just can t into this book because I don t understand the characters at all Especially Lee He keeps spouting off all these platitudes about how real men are ones who are brave enough to come out, yet he really doesn t know anything about Dirk On their first visit he layed into him for nothing, calling him an asshole Yeah, if I were Dirk I d be plenty pissed off that none of the firemen he worked with came to visit him So what if Stalled at 39%I m not sure if this is DNF for me or not, but I just can t into this book because I don t understand the characters at all Especially Lee He keeps spouting off all these platitudes about how real men are ones who are brave enough to come out, yet he really doesn t know anything about Dirk On their first visit he layed into him for nothing, calling him an asshole Yeah, if I were Dirk I d be plenty pissed off that none of the firemen he worked with came to visit him So what if he s kept them at a distance because he can t come out to them If he were a royal asshole they should still visit him, right Isn t that what a brotherhood and all that shit is all about It just feels like this whole story is based on that one thing at the beginning, that Dirk s an asshole without explaining much why and yes, I m sure that might come later , and everyone else just going along with that assessment without really trying to understand why he might act the way he does Plus, they keep talking about what an asshole he is and how horrible he is and all but all I ve seen is that he s just not close to anyone and he s scared of his dad and that he rescued a baby He doesn t sound that bad to me Maybe if they d referenced some horrible things that he s done, but not told them yet, I could stick with it to see if maybe they re right, but to me, so far, this whole situation just seems turned on it s head I feel like I don t want to read anyabout them if there are only scenes of them not getting to really know each other, Lee yelling at Dirk about what an asshole he is and that basically he d be much nicer to everyone if he came out already like a man, and then fights turning into passionate lust huh I don t think I m getting this at all so I m just going to put it away before I get evenmad at the characters, lol Overall book rating 3.5 Stars Audio book Narrator Peter B Brooke Cover rating 4.5 StarsThis was a sweet nice mellow read Hot gay firefighters Overall book rating 3.5 Stars Audio book Narrator Peter B Brooke Cover rating 4.5 StarsThis was a sweet nice mellow read Hot gay firefighters Hot fire fighter times two.Brad is so deep in the closet that he s a real jerk to everyone Thankfully, Lee sees through the assholish fa ade and tries to connect with him.Too bad the story was so short, it lacked depth and character development. Audible3,5 starsMy first Andrew Grey and my first Peter B Brooke, and I found the two fit together pretty well It was an easy and quick read, and I enjoyed the development of the relationship between Lee and Dirk What I can t understand, and what was difficult for me to believe, is the fact that NOBODY from Dirk s team mates except Lee, who was a new in the station visited him in the hospital where he stayed for a while because of being seriously injured while saving a baby from a burning h Audible3,5 starsMy first Andrew Grey and my first Peter B Brooke, and I found the two fit together pretty well It was an easy and quick read, and I enjoyed the development of the relationship between Lee and Dirk What I can t understand, and what was difficult for me to believe, is the fact that NOBODY from Dirk s team mates except Lee, who was a new in the station visited him in the hospital where he stayed for a while because of being seriously injured while saving a baby from a burning house Aren t firemen supposed to support each other I don t care what an asshole Dirk was BEFORE his stay at the clinic, but you can t as a fireman ignore a member of your team who has almost died while doing his job These are basic moral principles Even if they apologized later, it left a bad aftertaste Simple, uncomplicated self acceptance story.These kinds of stories aren t my favorite, probably because I have other issues to work through, but it s easy and enjoyable in an unrealistic way Looking for a gentle lovers story, then this is it with a side of hot guys 2.5 stars rounding up because I like mentoring, which is what Lee did for Dirk.
