S.E.X. Review~ Live for Love by TM Smith

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.

Every time I read a new All Cocks story by TM Smith I think it cannot get any better, and then the talented author proved me wrong. Live for Love was exceptionally written and dedicated to a sensitive topic in a world where love doesn’t always come easy.

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.
