Format: Paperback
Boy of the West End is a prequel to Boys of Vice City and the rest of the `Boys Of` series of books written and illustrated by Roger Kean and Zack the Artist. The book serves to expand the characters that we met in Vice City and fills in the blanks of the dramatic narrative that are the circumstances that lead to Mike Smith and Gill Graham meeting and falling in love in Rome, and their subsequent adventures in Disco City, Two Cities and the Fast Lane. However, Boy Of The West End is in itself a standalone story where we follow Mike as a Grammar School boy through his formative gay years as a questing teen in want of experience, finding out the hard way what it is to be an attractive youth equipped with a leanly muscled swimmers build and a near overwhelming sex drive.

Roger Kean whose experienced hand in writing shows an innate sense of capturing this adventure from a boys perspective, and has in Boy of the West End squeezed the ripened fruit of Gay liberation that was the hedonism and sexual exploration of the 1970s and has splattered the pages of Boy of the West with these juicy sexual shenanigans that take Mike on a journey from callow youth to kept boy toy of a Hollywood Film Producer. In between we find out about how our handsome teen`s good looks lead him in to one sexual scrape after another, be it the BBC studios of Top Of the Pops, or London`s Piccadilly Circus, finding and losing a chance for lasting love along the way; Mike learns hard and fast his trade in pleasuring men before falling prey to the predatory James Rosen who deposits him in Rome to await his exclusive pleasure in 1980.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the prequel to the adventures of London-born Mike and his American boyfriend and lover, Gil, the ultra-sexy heroes of previous stories. Mike is a lad from a middle class family, in his final year at a smart private school. In and out of school, Mike's main interests are photography, film and... sex with other guys. Mike is not one to struggle with his sexuality. But he experiences love and loss; the real perils of the pop groupie circuit and, short of cash, the highs and lows of life as a male escort. And so it begins: the fateful encounter with his nemesis, the all-powerful, evil James Rosen. But it is through Rosen that Mike gets to Rome and his love-at-first-sight meeting with Gil.
The story is fast paced and full of sexual thrills, adventures and misadventures. Both the writing, and Zack's unique drawings deliver a mega-watt erotic charge.

Sexy and exciting prequel to the Boys of... Series 4 Feb. 2014
By Tom(C) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This highly sexy and revealing prequel to the "Boys of..." series tells the story of Mike Smith before he met his super hot lover Gil Graham. Follow Mike as he goes from a posh, elite school in England (where you'll meet his little brother too) to the freedom of being on his own and his travels leading to Italy where he gets a job with the infamous film crew made so familiar in the first book in the series, Boys of Vice City. Many worlds are opened up to Mike some for the better and some for the worse but always an education in gay sex. Since this is a prequel you can start here or if you've read the books starting with Boys of Vice City up through the outrageously sexy story of Gil and the teen-star brat in Boys of the Fast Lane read Boy of the West End to see how it all started. Find out how Mike acquired his famous silver ear stud; how movie tycoon James Rosen got his greedy hands on Mike; and compare Mike's arrival in Rome's airport to Gil's Graham's misadventures with Italian customs. A truly loin stirring triumph in words and (in the paperback version) illustrations by the legendary gay artist Zack (aka Oliver Frey) See zack-art.com and oliverfreyart.com
