Book Rating: B+
Dark and brooding firefighter Brad Archer has spent months denying his attraction to his roommate, police officer Gavin Connolly. Gavin is just the kind of guy he likes: tall, tough, and buff enough to actually handle Brad’s big size and rough nature.
To hide his real feelings Brad holds the handsome, seemingly straight cop at arms’ length until a shooting at work leaves Gavin a little too vulnerable to ignore. What starts out as a simple attempt to comfort his roommate blows up into something wild, sexual, and wholly unexpected when Gavin wants more from Brad than a strong firefighter’s shoulder to lean on.
The sexual magnetism drawing the two of them together forces secrets to be revealed, and though the sex is mind-blowing it may not be worth weathering the storms their relationship could stir up. In order to protect him, Brad realizes he loves Gavin enough to let him go. The problem is—the stubborn cop may not let him.

Kele Moon’s Packing Heat is so scorching hot your e-Reader is in danger of going up in flames. But underneath the incendiary sex is a beautiful love story that will melt your heart. A drunken encounter takes Brad Archer and Gavin Connolly from friends to lovers. Will Gavin convince Brad there is more to their relationship than roommates with benefits?
Brad Archer is an out and proud firefighter who is not ashamed of his sexuality. But he is deeply scarred by a traumatic event from his past, and he does not have serious relationships. On the surface, Gavin Connolly comes across as bi-curious, but there is more to his story than originally meets the eye. And while both of these men are macho and in control, it is Gavin who does not hesitate to take charge of their relationship when Brad tries to push him away.
Packing Heat is incredibly erotic and the sex scenes are off the charts smokin’ hot. Gavin and Brad indulge in no holds barred, a little rough around the edges down and dirty sex. Brad loves to talk dirty and Gavin is not afraid to pull out his handcuffs.
Packing Heat by Kele Moon is a sexy novella with engaging protagonists and a compelling storyline that I highly recommend to fans of m/m romance. Just remember to keep a fan and glass of ice water handy before indulging in this sinfully sexy romance ;)!
