    How can you take a book with a title like Fire Balls seriously There was fire here and a hot firefighter but no fire balls unless this is meant to be symbolic for like actual testicles on fire or something but wait nope that wasn't included either The best word for this book is cartoonish The characters and plot were trite Everything was rushed The entire book took place in a matter of days time was hard to track There was zero character development minus a lot of I gotta date me a real man's man who happens to like cock on Hunter's part and even of I'm not worthy I'm so fucking short Hunter will never ever lurve me sob sob poor me on Rod's part and seriously what kind of a name is RodneyThrow in an angry homophobe who acts like a 10 year old cartoon bully a math professor and surfer both Hunter and Rod date other guys through half the book a dad in a wheelchair my daddy won't love me if I'm not all alpha and have a manly boyfriend a fire and a fire RESCUE people incredible art painted and sold for six figures in a matter of DAYS and you have yourselfyou have yourself THIS book Everyone seemed to be screwing everyone and infidelity was completely brushed aside like not even discussed like AT ALL And then it was over

    I really enjoyed this one I loved the character of Rodney very uniue and fun I loved that he was a serious bad ass despite being small and fem on the surface And Hunter was a nice change from the normal alpha male firefighter The writing was very good and I found myself highlighting a number of clever passages The sex was hot and the angst was not too angsty I prefer light angst and it felt natural and not just tacked on The only thing I didn't care for was the cheesy title IMHO the book and author deserve better I'll be looking of by this author

    This is a really enjoyable series and I'm rereading the first three after just buying book 4 Snow Balls which I thoroughly enjoyed Having gone through them all again I have to say this is my favourite Rodney and Hunters story reminds me of the film Roxanne based on Cyrano De Bergerac Rodney an artist who paints nudes is totally smitten with the gorgeous gay but macho in looks Hunter Hunter is out but stays under the radar because he's a fireman and getting stick from some of his colleagues Rodney is out proud and uber flamboyant so feeling Hunter wouldn't want to be with someone like him he helps his surfer dude friend Jerry who is super laid back but ' manly' get together with Hunter Jerry who is so loveable and almost naive inadvertently gets Hunter to pose for Rodney and from then on sparks flyI absolutely loved this romance Rodney and Hunter are on fire together and their love story is smoking literally None of these are long books but they are so satisfying and a break from some of the intense books in the genre Great

    How can I say this and not repeat the exact same words I've already said at least two times I adore Tara's men There I've done it again just can't help myself She loves the arts and has a tendency of combining it with something hard manly HOT but even there she is uniue because her unconventional pairings usually come with a twistRodney is a rather famous artist who is small flamboyant and dangerous that's right the little guy has a black belt in karate and doesn't take bullshit at all There's also another interesting thing about Rodney something that really appealed to me his penchant for dominance and hard topping Don't you just love himAnyway Rodney has the hots for a certain hunk who is pure candy in his fireman suit If Rodney does a bit of stalking that's okay too because no one really knows he's passing by the fire station to see Hunter he could just be taking a stroll But despite Rodney's direct way things don't work out exactly as he'd hoped they would His friend Jerry sees Hunter and instantly wants him and Rodney is just not the kind of man who will deny his friend besides Hunter obviously wants Jerry a surfer who doesn't even look gay than he might ever want a flamboyant artistThere is just one thing about Hunter even he doesn't want to admit himself Jerry is great wonderful even but he likes taking it up the ass just as much as Hunter does After a lot of denial a certain fire and Rodney showing off his skill the couple does steer toward one another as was meant to be and the hard and hot is than enough to steam up the windows Rodney really was amazing His insecurity was perfectly masked with his outspoken way and tendency toward drama I liked how he was a dangerous top in a small package and wasn't afraid of sayingshowing exactly who he was Hunter did get on my nerves a bit but that was to be expected as he was closeted in his on mind as much as he was out to everyone else Those types of characters just have to irritate me a bit But precisely for that reason Rodney was perfect for him Hunter needed someone to bring him to heel Or so was my take on the storyI have to say for those who have issues with it there are a couple of scenes of cheating in the story It was done nicely when it came to explanations and it was pretty obvious Jerry's mind was elsewhere But I just figured I was gonna mention it for those who mind the very idea of it There wasn't anything I disliked about the story It was written very well with thought on details when it came to art as well as firemen I just needed it to be longer The characters would heave been developed that way and the relationship between Rodney and Hunter would have had the chance to really shine I am a BDSM fan and those two just screamed the lifestyle at me So yes I did need of their lives and the details that made them tick All of that said this one is something I recommend I know people will love Rodney the 'fire ball' and the relationship between these two men Their gentle side as well as the hard edges Tara molds guys as she does words and the final product is always something extraordinary She plays at my love for contemporary and always gives the best to a fan

    Was there an irritating plot device Lain didn't use in this one Stereotypical characters cheating uasi closet case asshole who demeans effeminate gay men effeminate gay men with hidden depths poetry douchebaggery and characters who date other people throughout most of the book Why is it that these assholes can be single for years but as soon their soul mate shows up so does some other potential love interest and that's who they cling to I hate that shit Note to authors stop doing that

    Nick J Russo delivers a good performance with individual character voices and plenty of emotion but not good enough to get me over the issues I had with the story itself The dialogue felt forced the main characters Hunter and Rod date other men through than half of the book and Rod and Hunter have sex with each other when Hunter is still datinghaving sex with Rod's friendSonot my jam but the narration was funStory2 Stars Narration4 Stars; Total3 Stars Audio copy of Fire Balls Balls to the Wall #2 provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest reviewThis review has been cross posted at Gay Book Reviews

    I was so excited when LA said lets read this Yeahfun loving flaming hot boys with sexy firefightersBRING IT BABY What you will get with this book is a serious look into self esteem love self awareness finding your true self and living your own dreams Not to mention a healthy dose of don't judge a book by it's cover There were a lot of heavy moments in this book that were very well handled On the other hand while these men were in heavy turmoil throughout the book they did get away with cheating Cheating in the sense that friends do not have sex with the dudes their friends are having sex with unless they know Even though it was still casual between Hunter and Jerry it was not right for Rod and Hunter to do what they did I do have to say though that was an amazing scene that put so much into perspective of who Rod and Hunter were meant be Without those sex scenes I am not sure how Tara would have advanced the story line and the story progressed in away that there was no hurt in the end Those of you who are staunch 'no cheating' campers will totally and completely throw this book in the fire Honestly Rod is an amazingly written character He has a depth that surprised me Now I need to go read Volley Balls Gotta love the names of these books

    I really like Tara Lain's writing style and this series is really really good Rod was just an amazing characterhe was who he was and the way he was and he didn't apologize to anyone for being himself Small but in chargethat was RodneyHunter was a beautiful out but not firefighter who was living his life to please his father instead of himself I was glad to see his family rally around him and force him to do what was right for himeven if he thought his father wouldn't approveRod and Hunter were hot together but it took way toooooooooo long for them to get togetherway too long I hated that Hunter was seeing Jerryhated it But Jerry goofball that he is was just too luvable to hate and in the end he knew that Hunter was not his type I was glad it never affected his friendship with RodneyI bet the next one is about Jerrymaybe it will be called Goof Balls

    From the start I was a little disappointed to read this was not a continuation of the previous story I was really looking forward to reading about how the threesome was making out For the first uarter of this book I kept trying to remember if I knew any of the characters from the previous story While previous characters are mentioned here and there and actually make an appearance later on this could easily be read as a stand aloneI thought the first half of this went pretty slow It picked up from that point and then I could not put it down RomanRodney is a crazy talented artist with a black belt in karate who makes no excuses for the way he lives He has a thing for local fireman Hunter Unfortunately so does Roman's assistant Jerry so Roman holds back and lets Jerry have a chance with himCircumstances change and stuff happens and while I did not enjoy this as much as the first I am hooked on these stories and can't wait to jump right into the next one
