Join me in welcoming the latest book in the All Cocks Series, Live for Love.
I am a child of the 80s, so I remember the beginnings of AIDS and how the disease devastated the LGBT communities. Heck it was just the Gay community then. As the years have gone by, you hear less and less about AIDS even though it is tragically still around. These days, the cultural focus seems to have shifted to other alternative sexual preferences like a Daddy Dom Little Girl (DDLG) relationship, sure they enjoy playing house but that does not mean they deserve to be aggressively judged like those who were battling AIDS in the 80s were.
I have loved Beau since he was introduced in a past book. He is one fun Cajun. Watching him fall in love again, taking a chance with William is truly a touching experience.
I have fallen in love with all the guys at All Cocks and I know you will too!
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.
