Here’s what you, the brave reader, need to know. Fire Down Below has a sequel. I know; everyone’s super surprised that Amazon allowed me to keep the poop-your-pants book up all this time.
In Fire in the Hole, Dove’s sausage-loving neighbor has realized he’s wildly in love with her lurchingly awkward butt. Johnson is the pharmacist of her dreams until he tells her over Twitter—goddamnit—that he has plans with an ex-girlfriend.
Duke scrapes Dove off her apartment floor and takes her to his cousin’s wedding. As Pissboy and Cross-eyed Knockers tie the knot, Duke could just kick himself in the balls when he sees Johnson and Beth at the same venue driving Dove insane with jealousy.
Will Dove give up everything, even her self-esteem, to get Johnson’s johnson between her legs? Or will the scent of spiced meat inspire Dove to rip off Duke’s sausage-and-egg underwear forever?
I think it’s rare that you read a book and feel both entertained and completely mortified throughout the story. This was that book for me, and I loved every moment of it.
This is the continuation of “Fire Down Below”. If you haven’t read it I suggest you do so. Immediately. Anyway, it sheds a lot more light on all of the characters and you get to know them on a deeper level than you did in the first book.
Duke really did it for me in this book, which was kind of a surprise. Even with all of his strangeness, I really loved him. Heck, I loved all the characters in this book. I really felt like Debra accomplished writing a hilarious book that still really connected you with the characters, which I consider quite a feat. There’s actually a very sweet love story underneath all of the flatulence. But let’s face it, there’s plenty of flatulence in real life love stories too.
Overall, I loved this book as well as the first. If you haven’t read this series and you’re in the mood for a well written story with plenty of laughs as well as moments that will melt your heart, read it. 5 stars.
