Review and Giveaway: Fire Down Below by Debra Anastasia.

As I mentioned on Saturday, Jenn and I were dared (THAT should tell you something!!) by the author to read Fire Down Below and take part in the Double Doggy Style Dare Off.
Well, the day is here!!
Below, Jenn and I will share our thoughts, our VERY disturbed thoughts, PLUS, don’t forget at the bottom of the post to enter the hilarious giveaway!!
Good Luck!!

Dove Glitch is embarrassed about everything above her knees and below her belly button. When she has to fill a delicate, embarrassing prescription the last thing she needs is a sexy-as-hell (and brand spanking new) pharmacist behind the counter.

Johnson Fitzwell’s first day of his dream career also happens to coincide with the exact moment Dove needs her feminine meds filled. His glorious voice is way too loud–as in, he should be counting down the hits with Ryan Seacrest kind of loud. Thanks to Johnson’s handsome face and gorgeous jaw line, Dove dives headlong into her waking nightmare and asks for a vagina-scented cream.

How could she not fall for him? Dove’s only active goal now is to get Johnson to kiss her right on the lips. Either set. However, his horrible girlfriend is one of many obstacles preventing her from making that fantasy a reality. When Dove defends Johnson in the most unhygienic, unconventionally gross way in the middle of a crowded restaurant, their tender, slightly tantric relationship is off to a galloping, farting start.

Each print copy of this book will be dipped in holy water by my mom, and glared at by my father as he purses his lips. Neither will help. So, drop your pants and turn to the left and cough. I hope you’re not allergic to latex, because it’s time to fill your prescription. Anally.

Our thoughts:

Jenn: 5 farty stars

Wendy: 5 OMGS

Jenn: No one can describe a fart like Debra Anastasia! Oh my! Fire Down Below was an experience. I don’t remember the last time I laughed like that (to be totally honest, I think I even honked at one point.)

Wendy: Again, OMG!! I laughed so hard that my dog, who never leaves my side, got up and went into another room!

Jenn: I don’t know what possessed Debra to write this book but I am so glad she did. I loved these characters from one embarrassing moment to the next, I couldn’t put the crazy book down. In between the sharts, farts and lady bits there is a fun story with such a great cast of characters that I honestly wanted to be friends with. And that ending, I mean really!?! I actually cannot wait for more of this story!

Wendy: I’m going to be honest here. When I first saw the social media presence of Fire Down Below,  and after following the hilarious antics of the author on Twitter for over a year, I thought that it was a parody, or just something the author was joking about. I’m SO happy it was a real book though, AND that there’s more to come!! Reading this was like growing up with my older brother again. Farts and all. Half the time my brain didn’t know how to laugh, be grossed out, AND be embarrassed all within a few minutes span of time. Funny thing is, it wants more!!

Jenn: I am truly a Debra Anastasia fan-girl! This was truly one of the funniest books I’ve read and without a doubt will re-read. Make sure you aren’t eating or drinking while reading though, it would be hazardous to your health!

Wendy: I saw this morning that Fire Down Below is number 1 on Amazon in Love, Sex, and Marriage Humor, and there’s a reason why!!

4831831 (3)There are a lot of eyes in Debra Anastasia’s house in Maryland. First, her own creepy peepers are there, staring at her computer screen. She’s made two more sets of eyes with her body, and the kids they belong to are amazing. The poor husband is still looking at her after 17 years of marriage. At least he likes to laugh. Then the freaking dogs are looking at her—six eyeballs altogether, though the old dog is blind. And the cat watches her too, mostly while knocking stuff off the counter and doing that internal kitty laugh when Deb can’t catch the items fast enough.

In between taking care of everything those eyes involve, Debra creates pretend people in her head and paints them on the giant, beautiful canvas of your imagination. What an amazing job that is. The stories hit her hard while driving the minivan or shaving her legs, especially when there’s no paper and pen around. In all of the lies she writes hides her heart, so thank you for letting it play in your mind.

Debra is eternally grateful to Omnific Publishing, which has now published five of her books: two in the Seraphim Series and three in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series, as well as her novella, Late Night with Andres. That one is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. (So go get it right now, please!)

You can find her at and on Twitter @Debra_Anastasia. But be prepared…

  1. I laughed out loud reading this entire book. Highly recommend to everyone that breathes. I even reread a few (okay a lot) of pages to my husband. I was laughing so hard he was cracking up just looking at me.
