Title: Fire Balls
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?

All of the books in Tara Lain’s Balls to the Wall series easily work as stand alones. They can be read out of order without any problems. The characters appear in the other books, but not in a way that you’d have to read this series in any order. Rodney had a small part in Volley Balls and with Fire Balls he gets his very own happily ever after.
I was pleased with Rodney’s story. He definitely deserved his very own happy ending. Rodney has been crushing on the sexy firefighter Hunter. Rodney is pretty sure Hunter is straight but a man can dream and he does plenty dreaming of Hunter.
Hunter dreams too. He dreams of finding true happiness, a happiness that is all his own. Hunter is living a life that is not of his choosing. He’s just happy that he is not still struggling in the closet. He is however struggling with everything else. His biggest struggle revolves around the many lies he tells himself.
