LIVE FOR LOVE BLOG TOUR STOP AND REVIEW!




HELLO FRIENDS AND THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR MY BLOG TOUR STOP AND REVIEW OF LIVE FOR LOVE AND ALL COCKS STORY 5 BY TM SMITH!  I LOVE THIS BOOK AND SERIES AND THERE ARE SO MANY EXTRAS IN THIS POST INCLUDING A TEASER AND EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT AND MORE! ALSO LOOK FOR THE AMAZING GIVEAWAY!


Beauregard Boudreaux is a native of New Orleans Louisiana, born and raised there, he never thought he would ever stray far from home. The untimely death of his first love left Beau lost, adrift, looking for a place as far away from the pain as possible. Initially, he came to New York to visit a friend, the city growing on him, so he decided to stay. His law degree comes in handy at the LGBT Center he runs, but his bar is his baby.

William Richards grew up in Chicago, his family oddly normal and very accepting of his sexuality. Modeling paid the bills, gigs across the country as a model, male entertainer and a personal trainer giving him the opportunity to see the world. He hasn’t experienced loss or pain as Beau has, the common denominator between them is the loneliness. As All Cocks big, brooding bottom Connor, William has found friendship, family and an outlet for his craving to be more submissive than men of his size and stature usually are.

The two men are perfect for each other, their tastes and lives align and the writing seems to be on the wall. But Beau has a secret he shares with a choice few, a secret that not only threatens to keep them apart, it’s deadly. Determined to keep a wall between himself and William, Beau fights the attraction, pushes William away every time he steps closer. Can one man’s determination and strength be enough to tear down a wall that holds back decades of pain and darkness? And if he can, will either of them survive the flood?

Disclaimer: This book is the fictional story of a man living with HIV. I have put a lot of time and effort into presenting this story as true to fact as possible, without going into gory or gruesome detail. If this subject is a trigger for you, you may want to skip this read. But my hope is that you give Beau a chance to capture your heart as he has mine, and William’s.
 

HERE IS MY REVIEW OF LIVE FOR LOVE!!


I LOVE THIS QUOTE FOR BEAU! HERE IS MY REVIEW: 

I really enjoyed this book as well as this series so far, I love the way the characters from past books show up as if to say, " Here I am, don't forget me! (As if we could :P) 

This book is expertly written, and has subject matter that is heart wrenching and you will cry! These two men will get under your skin and you will think about this book long after you finish reading it! 

William and Beau are just meant to be together, but will they be able to face the pain of Beau's past, which bleeds into his present? You just have to read this book guys, you will love it as much as I did! 
                         the 5 red beans and rice with andouille sausage rating :)

I JUST HAD TO DO THIS RATING! YOU WILL SEE WHY :p LOOK BELOW FOR LINKS, TEASERS AND AN EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT!


“The night of the graduation party at the bar. I was in the back getting beers and the sneaky bastard caught me off guard.” Beau stared off at a spot on the wall behind Tristan’s head, not really seeing anything but William’s face when he came undone in his grasp. His smile was wistful, slowing fading away.

“Stop!” Tristan barked. “Whatever you were thinking there was good for a few seconds, but whatever it is you are thinking now needs to be tossed aside.”

Tristan stood, moving over to sit on the couch next to Beau. “I know you miss Izaiah. Trust me when I say if I didn’t realize how much before I definitely do now that I’m with Gabe and Micah. It’s okay to miss him Beau; remember him and talk about him so he lives through your memories. It’s been fifteen years, Beau. I think you can stop mourning him now.”

Beau stared at Tristan for a few seconds, shaking his head and frowning. “I…I don’t know how to let him go, Tris.”

Tristan cut him off with a wave of his hand. “I’m not telling you to let him go. What I’m saying is remember him, talk about him, but stop mourning him. If you were a woman, Beau, you’d still be wearing the black dress and veil.”

Beau threw his head back and laughed. Tristan grinned, shaking his head. “Now dat der is funny! Could you see me in a dress?”

Tristan laid his hand on Beau’s shoulder, smiling. “Think about it, please.” Beau nodded.

They visited for a little while longer, the session obviously over as the conversation strayed toward backyard barbeques and the revolting shade of red Gabe wanted to paint their bedroom. Beau left with a promise to come to dinner at Tristan, Micah and Gabe’s place and an appointment in two weeks.

He glided easily through the crowded city streets on his motorcycle, pulling into the garage space he rented and locking up his bike before braving the equally crowded sidewalks for the two block walk to his apartment. Beau had initially leased the two story building he now called home not long after moving to New York. When the lease was up the landlord offered him the option to buy, so he did. BB’s bar & grill took up the first floor, with an apartment on the second floor.

Beau popped into the small pack and mail across from the bar where he kept a PO Box, then jogged across the street and up the stairs to his apartment. He tried to call Alma before heading down to the bar, but got her voicemail. They’d been playing phone tag for a couple of weeks now. Between the time difference and their completely different schedules, they rarely got to talk. He needed to be more diligent– maybe he should take a quick trip down to check on her and spend a few days soaking up her attention. She did like to fret over him.
Tossing the keys and mail onto the table by the door, he got his boots off, heading into the bedroom to strip and shower before going down to the bar to do inventory, instead of putting it off until the last minute, like he usually did. He enjoyed his time at the bar when he was alone, the noise of the nightly crowds absent. No music blaring from the juke box in the corner or pool balls clanging in the background. The city was never quiet by any means, but behind the brick walls of his bar, Beau could shut out the world and find a few minutes of peace.
