A beautiful cover, designed by Jay Aheer of Simply Defined Art. Synopsis sounds more subdued.
As the fifth book in the series opens, we glimpse a painful point in our favorite bartender's life. There are times throughout the book that are a little somber and dark, but it is balanced quite well with the antics of the other cast members, eventually drawing Beau into the light. Secondary characters include: previous All Cocks couples and throuples, staff and residents of the center, staff at BBs and a few minor others. In order to fully appreciate this book, I'd really, highly recommend reading the series in order for maximum benefit and comprehension.
I am finding it difficult to decide just how well I enjoyed this book. While I truly loved the main characters as well as the some of the newer characters presented that hint at a future possible story and the super smooth and well-written story, the plot seemed to hop and skip time a lot. One month here, two months there. It made it more difficult to develop a deeper connection to Beau and William and really feel their relationship and bond growing as it did. What I did love was the way T.M. Smith conveyed the dialect and accent through written word, I feel that it really brought Beau's character to life. I only wish that in addition to going to Chicago that they would have went to visit Alma. I was looking forward to that and it never happened. The plot seems to stop rather abruptly, but wraps up in a fantastic epilogue... again, leaving us with hints of possible future stories or side-lines. It was great to read more about how the other cast members are coming along, I enjoy the continuing time line and inclusion of other characters.
This is not a series about gay porn, in fact, there's a line in this book that struck the heart of this series dead-on....
(Quoting from unedited ARC, may be subject to change)
"...porn didn't define any of them. It was a job, nothing more. Their lives started when the camera stopped rolling, not when it began."
Rating: [R] ~ Score: 4.2 ~ Stars: 4
I'm not going to rehash the plot because the blurb sums it up pretty well. I want to talk about the characters. Beau breaks my heart. He's had a loss that he hasn't been able to get over, and it's slowly killing him. Yes, he's a lawyer and a successful business man, but he's lonely and doesn't think he deserves to fall in love again. He's also incredibly generous, and that is the part of him that really got me. To me, he's heroic.
William is a model/actor with All Cocks, a popular gay adult entertainment website. He's very sweet and seems to be happy. The All Cocks group are a big family, and they have welcomed him and surrounded him with love. The only thing missing is Beau. He wants him so badly it's almost painful to read.
They belong together. It's obvious. They need each other, and we just know they'd be complete if they were together. I loved reading their scenes together. Sure, a lot of them were hot...I mean nuclear...but it's the times when they just talk that made me fall in love with them.
The background characters are guys we've known and loved since book one (Gay for Pay). From the guys who have been together as couples and threesomes, to those who will be featured in future installments, they are all well fleshed out and don't get in the way of the story. They make the plot much richer than it would be if they weren't around.
Live for Love is, at it's heart, a beautiful love story. Beau and William deserve their happily ever after, and I was so happy to get to read it. Do yourself a favor and read it.
Beau, a lawyer, owner of a pub and founder of a youth center for LGBTQ has lived with HIV for over a decade, infected by his onetime partner, now deceased. Beau had closed himself off to emotions and relationships, frightened of loving and losing again. William, porn star for All Cocks had set his sights on the lovely Cajun and with both barrels went for the man until Beau finally relented and went out with him. The rest was a happy ending with ups and downs, but worth the adventure.
Ms. Smith delivered a beautiful story of love still out there, even when you are fighting silent demons that could potentially rear its ugly head. The author did a wonderful and well- researched job of illustrating the importance of safe sex and the knowledge needed when a person is HIV positive and/or dating someone with the virus. Ms. Smith spared no details, no matter how sensitive in educating her readers that life can go on with proper precautions.
As always, the men of All Cocks, were supportive and loving~ their make shift family~ endearing and quite capable of handling any challenge. Ms. Smith does a nice job of not forgetting her past main characters and allowed them to traverse the new storyline while still keeping true to the message. Mattie, Victor, Chris, Andrew, all the men of All Cocks, worm their way into any reader’s heart and hold a special place.
William and Beau had chemistry both in personality and sexually. The two men deserved what they desired~ a loving partner coupled with a loving family.
