Do BL novels have plot like for example Nitro+Chiral games or they mostly pure romance stories and porn? I read that is common that light novels writers starts as web novels writers. Do popular BL light novels or BL web novels even exist popular enought to get anime adaptation in future? I know that in China BL novels are popular (MDZS) but China censor them.

Well, they all have plot. You can't really write a story without some sort of plot.
Some of them have a plot that's just along the lines of guys meet, guys get together and have sex, guys have a fight, guys get back together and have sex.
Some use plot just to get to the sex and some focus on plot and the sex is just extra.
It's just the same as romance novels with straight couples.

As for BL novels getting anime adaptations, there's one I absolutely cannot remember the name of right now but it has had multiple anime adaptations (one was a couple of years ago), and the novels even got translated to English officially.

Edit: Found it. Ai no Kusabi

Ahh, now I want to read Natsuno Hotaru's first work in her twitter post (Gingitsune no Omoi Hito?) and Taromaro's Hachigatsu Mikka looks nice.

Is there a site where we can read BL light novels in English? I've never really considered them until now, just stuck to manga format.
