Review Of Fire Balls by Tara Lain
Fire Balls (Balls to the Wall #2) by Tara Lain 5*
BLURB: Rodney Mansfield is tiny, flamboyant and, oh yeah, a black belt in karate. He is also one of southern California’s greatest artists. Too bad the work of art he really wants is firefighter, Hunter Fallon. But the gorgeous “straight gay” guy could never want the Runtback of Notre Dame, so when Rodney’s handsome, surfer friend, Jerry, develops an unexpected passion for the beautiful firefighter, Rodney breaks his own heart by helping Jerry land his man. And then Rod makes it worse by embarrassing Hunter when he protects him from a firehouse bully. Hunter hates gay guys like Rodney – doesn’t he? Then why can’t he get the powerful pipsqueak’s face out of his mind… and cock out of his ass? And why does he risk his job and his life to rescue Rod from a burning building? Isn’t it time for him to admit he’s not an alpha male after all and that he is the property of the artist?(
My Review: I am definitely reading these books in the wrong order but it doesn't matter at all. Tara Lain writes a beautiful romance that stands on it's own. I loved the character of Rodney and wish I had a friend like him. He was kind and generous and so flamboyant too. Hunter however took a little time to grow on me but boy by the end of the story I was rooting for them both as they had so much chemistry going on it was burning the pages.
