WOW I may need some time to collect my thoughts on this one, I was left completely speechless. This book is awesome!!!! Forget about putting a label on this of contemporary romance, erotica, gay romance, it is just a beautiful, real, gritty, emotional, raw love story. It completely captivated me from the beginning and I literally couldn’t put it down. To the point that I was late to my boyfriends birthday and almost missed the first half of a Broadway show we had tickets for. THAT GOOD! AMAZING!!! LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT!!!!
The general idea of the story, without giving too much away, is two NYC firefighters that have been friends their whole lives. Griff the big irish one, and Dante the pretty boy and cocky italian one. They’ve been through everything together. But somehow Griffin starts wanting more than just friendship and he doesn’t know how to deal with those feelings or what to do about them.
Their friendship, their connection and love for each other was present at all times in this book. In my eyes there couldn’t be anyone more perfect for the other. The issues they face are real, from being a firefighter, to being straight men and now finding that they are in love with a man and how society deals with that.This book will bring tears to your eyes, especially after knowing the back story of this couple and how this book came to be, as this is a real life story that didn’t have a HEA. Emotional and moving and quite frankly very HOT! Yes, of course, I couldn’t leave that out now could I? There’s some extremely hot firefighter sex, raw, intense, full of emotion. Just…WOW…*fans self* A.MA.ZING!!! I’d love to see the video of that! 😉
I am dying now for the next book which is Tommy’s story. We saw a bit of him in this book and the issues he’s been dealing with and I am ready to see him get a HEA, I’m rooting for him, he deserves it, and I know he’ll also have a HOT as HELL book!
TRULY A MUST READ BOOK!!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.
I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
