Fireman's Carry

Carry Me, #1

I’ve got a sweet gay romance for you.

In Fireman’s Carry you have Carl. He is a straight police officer who has gone through a rough divorce. He has partial custody of his two children and spends all of his time either with them or on the job.

Vincent is an openly gay firefighter who is also recently single due to his cheating boyfriend. While moving in Vincent asks Carl for some help in moving some furniture. The two men spark up a conversation and soon become friends.

One day Vincent's cheating ex shows up to cause trouble. Without thinking it through Carl says he's Vince's boyfriend and kisses the man. All of a sudden Carl's eyes are open to the possibilities of what it would be like to really have a relationship with Vincent.

Do I believe straight guys suddenly kiss their friends and then easily fall into hot sex? No not really. These two fell into a sexual relationship way too easily to be super realistic, in my opinion. That being said they were hot together. Really hot. I decided who really needed realism when you have a hot fireman and a hot policeman having hot sex together.

This was an enjoyable short read with likeable characters and a fast paced plot. It was sweet and sexy and had a nice happily ever after. Overall a fun read.

Carl Lewis has little joy in his life. He’s recently struggled through a painful divorce, has partial custody of his two kids, and is learning to rearrange his schedule so work as a detective is no longer first. It’s not easy. Then he meets his new neighbor, Vincent Androse, an openly gay firefighter who just went through a bad break-up of his own. He gives the man a hand moving furniture, and they strike up a friendship that starts to fill holes in Carl’s life he didn’t even know were there.

Vincent moves to get away from his cheating ex-boyfriend, Lonnie. His new house is big and empty, and he finds himself enjoying the Friday night BBQs with his new friend, Carl, even with the man’s kids there. When Lonnie shows up, begging for him to come back, again, and refuses to leave, Carl steps in, pretending to be the new boyfriend. Vincent discovers Carl can kiss—really kiss, and he starts wanting things the straight cop can’t give him. Can he? 127 pages / 4 Flames
