About the Author

Jake Biondi began BOYSTOWN in June of 2013 as an online story and intended to release one "episode" online per month, each ending in a cliffhanger. The story became so popular -- and the online reading audience grew so quickly -- that people from all over the country began to email him demanding to know what happened to their favorite characters and wanting the episodes to be released faster. They also had suggestions for future storylines. Excited by and grateful for his readers' responses to BOYSTOWN, Biondi began to write and release installments more quickly.

In November of 2013, Biondi moved BOYSTOWN offline and published the first ten installments in book form as BOYSTOWN Season One. The book became an international hit, with fans all over the globe clamoring for more. BOYSTOWN Season Two was published in July of 2014. Season Three was released on May 1, 2015, Season Four was released on November 13, 2015, Season Five was released on June 1, 2016, Season Six was released on December 16, 2016, Season Seven was released on July 7, 2017, and Season Eight was released on February 14, 2018.

Because of the popularity of the book series, fans have suggested that BOYSTOWN be turned into a television series. Biondi recently completed the TV scripts for the first season of BOYSTOWN and hopes to bring the series to television in the very near future.

It only takes one moment to transform dozens of lives forever. Just ask the characters from Jake Biondi's BOYSTOWN series and its most recently released installment, SEASON THREE. The work picks up with the aftermath of the New Year's Eve party and its revelation about two of the characters and their clandestine relationship. Immediately thereafter, though, before the dust can settle from the announcement, an explosion tears through the lower floor of the hotel, leaving many of the key players affected. BOYSTOWN relates the melodramatic stories of a group of people (mostly men, with a few women) in a Chicago neighborhood, along with all of their relationships (sexual and otherwise) and interactions with one another. The most prevalent overarching story element is a long-time feud between members of two families, the Mancinis and the Ciancios, that extends even beyond Chicago's borders. Further elements explored include one love affair and betrayal after another, much like your favorite soap opera but, this time, actually well-written and more genuine. Each of the myriad characters has his or her own personal agenda, usually at odds with many of the other characters, and none of the characters is ever upfront or entirely honest about his or her intentions, goals, desires, or plans, making for suspense like you wouldn't believe. This most recent installment incorporates deep character wounds, dark and unexpected betrayals, and smoking hot sexuality among its tormented, duty-bound, and secret-keeping cast. Dialogue runs along swiftly, as befits the television-episode style in which the work is written (indeed, each chapter is actually intended to be an episode). Sometimes, it's chaotic to try to keep everyone straight, especially when so few people are being entirely honest, and when many of the names begin with the same letter (Joyelle, Justin, and Jesse; or David, Dustin, and Derek, for instance). However, whereas the written, words-on-a-page version is somewhat confusing, if the story were televised and each of the characters had his or her own face and personality with whom to visually identify, the confusion would likely be minimized. Finally, one of the most unique parts of the story is the philosophical statements that begin and end each episode, and serve as a sort of "theme" for the content of that episode among all the different character interactions. These summary statements add a sort of literary flair to an otherwise fast-paced real-world scene. Let me put it this way ... you'll find, reading this work, that there is never a dull moment in BOYSTOWN! # # # Author: Jake Biondi Title: BOYSTOWN: SEASON THREE ISBN: 978-1-51182-372-2 Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this work from the author in exchange for an honest, though not necessarily positive, review.

First off I have to say that Jake has created a series that is incredible and should become a TV series because it is so good you need to see the characters live once you have read the book. I started following and stalking Jake after reading Boystown Season One. The first season describes the characters and builds up to a climatic ending and then season two picks right up where season one leaves off and you start to see the characters for who they are and what they want. In season two you also get lots of twists and turns and things start to kick off before the new year. Season Three picks up on New Years Eve and lordy lordy I have to say that Jake really had me on the edge of my seat because there are pregnancies, cheating, drinking, attempted murders and maybe the most shocking is one of my favorite love to hate characters is shot and may be dead. All the couples are in the thick of things and we get to meet new characters and find out who mugged Cole. We also get to find out who Jesse's father is. Stuff is popping off and this is a MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need season four right now!

Boystown Season Three-Boystown Series Jake Biondi!!!I recommend this series to be read in order! The New Years Eve explosion leaves everyone fighting for their lives and leaves the survivors trying to put their lives back together which is no easy task with this bunch. The Mancini-Ciancio family feud is getting seriously out of hand with members fighting for control. This series could completely be made into a television series and I believe that it should be as when reading this series I actually felt that I was watching a drama TV series. Emmet and Max, all the drama and story seems to be focusing on these guys and the explosion that erupted when they announced their engagement. Derek has no choice but to accept and realize his love for Cole. So much happens in this novel and the series and the drama that follows these characters is quite intense so get ready for a wild ride that Jake will take you on. A great twist happens with Emmet and Max as their friendship wasn't quite what they have been portraying. I enjoyed the 3rd installment in the Boystown Series and at times it was intense as some of the characters and their actions were not the most lovable by any means but this just speaks volumes of the brilliant writing as not everything in life is roses...lol I won't go through all the characters as I would be here for a very long time as the novel is filled with some hot and riveting well written characters. Jake will have you glued to each page and the high intensity will make it very difficult to put the book down. I found that I wanted this 3rd installment to go on and on and what amazing characters. Yes there are quite a few of them but Jake blends them so well together. This is a fascinating series and I for one hope it never stops or in the show format, hope it never gets cancelled and keeps getting renewed. Trust me you don't want to miss Boystown Season Three or the entire Boystown Series by Jake Biondi!!! "Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review."
