Fire Balls by Tara Lain

A Balls to the Wall Romance

Renowned artist Rodney Mansfield stands five foot six, has pink hair, six earrings, a black belt in karate--and a desperate yearning for firefighter Hunter Fallon. But Rod, the Runtback of Notre Dame, knows he'll never land the beautiful "straight gay" guy, so Rod musters his altruism and helps his more masculine friend Jerry attract Hunter. As if a broken heart wasn't enough, Rod saves Hunter from a firehouse homophobe--humiliating Hunter in front of his dad!

Hunter lives a dream life--his father's dream. While he'd like to teach literature in college, read poetry in the sun, and find a strong guy to top him, he fights fires for his dad. Hunter hates flamboyant guys like Rodney. So why can't he resist him? Maybe it's time to admit this is one flame he has no desire to put out.

Loved it. LOVED it! It’s emotional from the first page as Rodney is subject to his obsession with Hunter and purposely walks past the firehouse in hopes of just glimpsing him, and further as his buddy Jerry gets a gander at Hunter and seeks to land him with Rodney’s help. Hunter is a complex character himself, being the big tough firefighter and having to put up with crap from a jerk of a coworker. When Rodney ends up coming to his defense in public, it only serves to confuse and frustrate Hunter that much more. Their struggle with each other and a few outside factors is both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. As for the actual romance, smokin’ hot and incredibly sexy. They were a little reluctant at first, for reasons you’ll have to read to find out, but that only added to the steam. Truly a wonderful, enjoyable, touching, and satisfying story. If I wasn’t already a fan of Tara Lain, this would make me one.

Sweet, fun, light read. I read it in a night and frequently found that I was sitting there with a stupid sh*t-eating grin on my face. I was worried the flamboyant Rod with his "darling"s and "OMG"s would be hard to relate to, but I teared up when he finally let his emotions out with David. Who hasn't been in that horrible helpless position of unrequited love? And I loved that things were thoroughly wrapped up at the end where a lot of similar books would have ended a couple chapters earlier.

What a delight to read my first Tara Lain novel: Fire Balls. It was just right for a rainy day when I needed cheering up. And Tara’s writing voice does just that – it sings as clear as a bell with hardly a word to spare, leaving the reader (me) breathless as the plot romps along at an amazing pace. She says she loves beautiful boys (on a page) so she must be passionate about her main characters, Rodney and Hunter, because I am. Rodney is in danger of being the all-too clichéd “fey” gay character with his painted hair and hands on hips attitude. But under Tara’s supervision he becomes a fully-rounded, loveable character whose heart is larger than he is. So, says one of the story’s underlying messages, don’t judge anyone until you know him/her better. This short novel, which has an unpredictable ending, introduces such diverse subjects as karate, painting, the life of a fire-fighter - all in interesting and well-researched detail, and each weave perfectly into a passionate, funny and highly entertaining tale populated by characters that I’ll never forget. All I need to do now is get into another Tara Lain as soon as possible.

i usually don't read much m/m romance but when i read the blurb for Fireballs i was intrigued. at the 1st page i could not put it down, i sympathized with all of the main characters and wanted to smack them at the same time. LOL! they all had their individual insecurities and that kept them apart for much of the book but they heat between them two heroes wouldn't allow them to stay apart either. when they finally came together as a couple it was very touching and poignant and just the right amount of sweet without being sappy or distacting from the masculinity of either of the heroes. Thank you Tara for writing such a wonderful story. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.
