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?

Fireman's Carry - Charlie Richards
March 6th, 2015
This was the first book I have read of Charlie Richards and I loved it! I love the feeling of being involved in a first time love affair. And finally coming out to too yourself for yourself. Very moving story. Very honest. I could not put it down until I was finished. Be still my beating heart.

It could have been a very good book. If we could cut the last chapter it would seem a little better. At least it would not be that sweet...
