I'm not sure if you're interested, mine is a mafia really slow-burn novel set in New York and was inspired by the manga Gokusen for the base story. Just a tad bit darker and BL.
Genres: BL, Mystery, Action, Contemporary
In the eyes of the public, Rhys Martinez is the darling boy of the governor of New York, who has an angelic smile and charming wit. The people of New York and the media adore him, girls and boys (as well as some men and women) are desperate for even just a second glance from him.
Reality is a fickle goddess, however. Because Rhys is neither sweet nor caring, he doesn't give a single fuck about people in general unless they are his grandfather or his best friend. He fits right in at Edison Academy's worst class despite never being participating in the havoc his classmates tend to wreak. But he never discourages the sick games either because he doesn't care. Not after what happened the previous year.
He is ready to sit back and watch as his classmates do their worst to traumatize and torture whatever poor soul they get as their new homeroom and Literature teacher. And upon seeing the pathetic, weak kid that barely looks older than them in his preppy clothes and huge glasses, he knows that there is no chance that Dmitri Armand would last more than a week under the Black Sheep's tender care.
But reality likes to play tricks on those who assume things…
Will your novel contain mature love scenes? Kind of. The original version has explicit love scenes but the one I'm publishing is somewhat censored to meet the guidelines.
