Tony Blair, is a sixteen-year-old boy who is seduced by Andy Warhol like filmmaker Carlos Reichart. Tony moves to New York with Carlos as his lover and star to be. Right from the start their relationship was very dangerous, considering the issues that Tony was having trying to accept his homosexuality.

Tony meet and moves away with Monica to start a new life. However, leaving, leads to more issues and a tragedy brings him back to New York where things will change his life forever.

We find that Tony is telling his story from prison because he has killed Carlos. Nobody ever cared about what he felt and everything he went through, or why he did what he did, but now he has the chance to tell the truth about everything. Boys of Life is not a romance with a HEA, it is a very dark read.

Even though you know how it ends you can’t help but keep turning the pages. This is a riveting, imaginative story, the sex, sometimes shocking, is never gratuitous.
The plot was great and Paul really draws you in with his writing. The setting was the 80’s where homosexuality was not accepted and people suffered from physical and emotional abuse from stupidity of others.

This is definitely a different type of book than I’m used to reading. This book made me cry, laugh and kept me wanting to know what happened that would cause someone to murder another person. I highly recommend this book, be prepared to be moved and possibly terrified.1-Click and get started.

Warning: This book features a relationship between a 16-year-old boy and a 40-year-old man along with graphic BDSM.
