Another season and another winner!!
I swear every time I pick up a new season, after waiting months and months, I have to first go back and at least read an episode or two of the previous season to get my head back into this setting, these characters and these wicked circumstances.
Once again, we have a season filled with all the glory of the classic soap operas from the 80's and 90's. This season was certainly no different and yet nothing ever feels repetitive.
From engagements, to divorces, to cheating, to murder and backstabbing, to wicked behavior and intrigue. We even got our first threesome scene...and boy was that hot as hell. Phew.
Every season brings forth new characters and honestly at this point I really need to be keeping a cheat sheet going to keep my head wrapped around everyone. And par for the course, the number of cliffhangers is high, much like our "who shot JR" classic antics...they are glorious to see unfold. Still amazed that Chicago has this number of ambulances on standby. LMAO.
Another great and entertaining BR with Marco...we look forward to these at each and every release. When we do finally see an end in sight, I see a full on reread of the series prior to reading it's conclusion. Can't wait for that full binge.
Although a prolific reader, I rarely read something so spellbinding that I cannot put it down. Jake Biondi has demonstrated once again that he is a masterful storyteller. The Boystown books are destined for television. Fans of the series, both old and new, are going to be thrilled.
At the end of every book there are explosive cliffhangers (sometimes, literally). The cliffhangers from the previous book roll right into the beginning of the next book. In Season 7, the end featured a stabbing, a man who back from the dead and kidnapped another character. A brother – sister team shot more than one character. Two men were left to die of carbon monoxide poisoning by a man of the cloth. That’s just some of the craziness. My heart was in my stomach when I finished it. I patiently waited for this book to find out what would happen.
I can’t really reveal much about what happens inside BOYSTOWN Season 8 though, because just about anything is a spoiler. A couple I really liked appears to be ending, but really anything can happen, so I hold out hope. Another couple might be forming in the wake of a sad loss. Some characters continue to frustrate me by their repeated mistakes. They aren’t the characters I hate, but I find them stupid for lack of a better word. Some characters are such good guys and they seem to be the ones with the most rotten luck. Another group of characters I dislike because they are manipulative and actively work to make other characters’ lives harder. They aren’t the big bad ones though, so I hold onto a little bit of hope that they can see the light before they become the ones I hate.
There is an expression that I remember from my days watching soap operas. Characters that you love to hate. Here’s where it’s time to name the bad baddies. I can’t say that I love to hate Marco, the guy who pretended he was dead in order to destroy his brother. Nor Francesco Armani the former Cardinal who tried to control one of his former priests, and hurt others as well. I also don’t love to hate Aiden, the long lost Mancini who holds his brothers to blame for the sins of their father. I just hate them. At times, I can find myself very frustrated because these characters kill and hurt and never pay for what they do. Karma and the law just seem to be absent when it comes to them. Up until a point. Even if I’m ready to scream at the end of the book, I am addicted to this series because I am waiting to see them get what they deserve. I also need to see the good guys win once in a while, too. I just know I can’t stop reading these books.
I know some readers don’t like cliffhangers, and if you don’t, this might not be the series for you. I would encourage you to step out of your comfort zone for this series though. It’s exciting and passionate. Sometimes, frustrating. I can’t deny that I am left with a whole bunch of feelings at the end of the reading, and I like that there is so much to look forward to in the next book.
