“As the others scrambled, two more gunshots were fired, echoing throughout the room. Blood splattered on the wall and floor as three bodies fell to the ground.” –BOYSTOWN Season One
In the aftermath of the warehouse shootings, lives are forever changed and relationships are forever altered. As the families of the victims work to put the horrific event behind them, they find themselves at the center of an even larger plan for revenge.
Ciancio twins Marco and Gino are as handsome as they are powerful — and they arrive in Boystown with a scheme rooted in the bad history between the Ciancio and Mancini families.
At the same time, Keith Colgan seems hell-bent on getting back the boyfriend he believes was stolen from him, Ben Donovan continues with his plan for Jacqueline Morgan and her son Jesse, and a stranger from the past threatens the future.
It all leads up to a spectacular New Year’s Eve engagement party that no one will ever forget.
Welcome back to BOYSTOWN!
Wow, I cannot believe I got on this crazy train for a second ride. But I did it. Like a train wreck, I simply could not look away. After the cliffhanger ending from Season One, I just had to know how things were going to play out.
This installment reads very much like the first in that soap opera sort of way. It took a little getting used to again, but, as with the first, once you get going, it is pretty easy to follow. There are a ton of characters to keep track of, and they are all intertwined in some way, shape or form. There is enough drama to sink a ship, so much so, that it gets a little tiring at times. And, there is a boatload of sex. Feelings I had about certain couples from Season One are totally changed this time around. No one is safe really.
So, I mentioned this reading like a soap opera, a highly charged, sex-filled soap opera. There is mystery, deception, anger, lies, drama and sex galore, not to mention revenge and cheating. Some new characters are added, but I was still left not really having any I cared to root for.
As with the first installment, this story reads very fast and had me turning pages just to see if, hopefully, there was some light at the end of the tunnel for just one of these couples. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced the gamut of emotions quite the way this story has made me feel. Jake definitely has a way of twisting a tale, as this one will definitely put you through the wringer.
If you’re looking for a high drama, fast paced, exciting read, be sure to give Boystown another look. This segment ends in another WTF cliffy, which, of course, left me wanting to jump right into Season Three.
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
