ARC Mini-Review: Hotter With a Pole (M/M)

Hotter With A Pole (Firehouse 69 #2)

by Delilah Devlin


When Noah buys a classic '68 Camaro from a fellow firefighter's widow, he hopes it will ease some of the grief crushing his heart. But the grinding noise under the car's hood sends him straight to a mechanic. Something about the burly, imposing Hoyt sparks Noah's interest, and it's not just Hoyt's ice-blue eyes and bad-boy biker looks. It's the mutual interest they have--Club LaForge.
After losing his partner to cancer a year ago, Hoyt never thought he'd feel the same kind of rush with another man. But his reaction to Noah throbs deep in his body like the rumble of his Harley.
LaForge seems like the perfect place to meet and work off some sorrow, to feel alive again. But the flood of desire quickly gets hot enough to melt their emotional barriers into unexpected connections.
Connections Hoyt isn't sure he's ready for...especially since history has a scary way of repeating itself.
Warning: Get your motor running for a Harley-riding hunk of muscle who doesn't give a damn about the rules of being a Dom, and a firefighter who can take the heat. Buy a case of your favorite coolant. You're gonna need it.
Themes: erotica, M/M
Rating: 3 stars
Heat Rating: 
 Well that was an interesting and sexy departure from my usual reading options.  I have read many different series and stories by Delilah and they are always hit or miss for me, but this story was a hit.  I enjoyed seeing these two macho guys coming together in a true relationship of give and take.  Granted there was a large focus on the bedroom fun, but there was enough exploration of their emotional traumas and issues that I felt like I really got a small glimpse into what will become a great relationship.  After all love is love in whatever the form and this story proves that if a person has  an open mind they might find they have been missing out on a soul deep connection their whole lives looking for their partner in the wrong places.  I liked getting to know Hoyt and Noah and seeing them interacting with other club members as well as Noah’s firefighter brothers.  I realized much too late that I should have read the previous books in this series and the original to really understand the nuances of the guys and their club, but overall it was a fun, sexy short read for a boring evening in the tub.  Might just have to catch up and keep up with this series.
