Can an old-fashioned cowboy and a young man on the run from his dark past find a future together?

Herschel is a simple rancher who believes everybody deserves a second chance, which is why he tends to hire underdogs—like Dalton, a young cowboy who needs all the support and TLC Herschel can offer.

Dalton doesn’t think anyone can forgive him for what he did, but Herschel seems willing to try. In fact, he might be the best thing that has ever happened to Dalton. He might even be the one to help Dalton trust in the future again. Just when he’s about to tell Herschel everything, all hell breaks loose. Herschel must help Dalton break free from everything that’s haunting him, or they’ll both end up alone.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: For me this book was a war between absolute love and being rather annoyed.

I know the reason for it and that is, quite simply, that the writing style of BA Tortuga has always been something that I have trouble connecting with. But still I keep on going back because the type of stories Tortuga writes are what I like. However, the actual idea of the story and the whole “cowboys looking after a baby and finally reveal their feelings for each other” plot device – absolutely perfect. I also loved the touch of soap opera type of drama introduced when it comes to said baby’s paternity.

The story is about Hoss (seriously, this name, totally rubbed me the wrong way for reasons unknown) and his best friend since childhood, Bradley. They are both cowboys and have been secretly in love with each other years. One day, Hoss finds a baby randomly left on his door step and through some convoluted reasoning; he ends up looking after the baby girl with the help of his friend.

The story works in two parts, 1) Hoss and Bradley getting together, where one is out and the other is in the closet still, and, 2) looking after the baby and the mystery of where she came from. There was a twist at the end that came from nowhere, it’s a bit unbelievable, so people that like things to be more relatable may need to enter with an open mind. Seriously, when I say this is something you would see on Days of Our Lives /Neighbours/Coronation Street, believe it.

Regardless of my feelings of the author’s writing style, this was nevertheless an enjoyable read. I loved the plot, I loved the characters and I loved the setting.

by

Bryan Mills has fantasized about cowboys all his life. Real cowboys, that is. He even dresses in what his roommate calls “cowboy drag” when he visits his favorite bar, in the hope of attracting the attentions of a genuine cowboy. But all he usually finds are posers and guys his own age.

Then one night, to his surprise, Curtis Hansen buys him a beer, and Bryan has no doubt this is the real thing. Curtis is a rugged, gorgeous man who is every bit a cowboy. He even owns his own ranch. What follows is about the most amazing night of Bryan’s young life. 

But can they move beyond a night of incredible sex when Bryan admits to Curtis that the only horse he’s ever ridden was a birthday party pony? And that he’s nothing but a poser himself? Maybe, just maybe, Curtis can find the real cowboy inside Bryan, and they can ride off into the sunset together!

Blurb: Zane Ashford’s stint in the NYPD comes to an abrupt halt when he is injured in the line of duty. After waking up partially blind in one eye, all he wants to do is crawl into a hole, but his friends and family won’t leave him alone. Reluctantly, he lets his best friend talk him into time away on a ranch in Montana. But the moment he gets there and meets Cyrus Abrams, Zane begins to contemplate murder.

Cyrus Abrams is vulgar, ornery, stuck in his ways, and not about to change for anyone, no matter how good Zane Ashford looks in those jeans. The more they lock horns, the more Cyrus begins to see Zane in a whole new light. But Cyrus has a past, one that left him in big trouble and more broken than he cares to admit—a past no one told Zane about. Cyrus fears that when Zane finds out, everything will come to a screeching halt.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Hot damn this was one sexy book. The first thing that drew me in was the cover, and then the title, then the blurb and my heart just started beating fast. The cover showed me that it was going to be hot and sexy, mixed in with a bit of humor. Not a lot but just the perfect amount added in. Then there is the fact that one of the guys used to be a cop and damn my palms just started sweating. A man with the gun just heats you up. Then the title showed me that there is a bit of angst that will pull at you and maybe just a bit of tears added in. Then the blurb just captivates you and makes you want to grab it.

Zane was injured in the line of duty and he was pissed to say the least. He wanted to just give up and stay hidden. However thanks to his family and friends, his ass was about to go on a little trip to see a ranch. Now this is just not an ordinary ranch mind you, for there is one sexy man there who is going to rock Zane’s world.

Now Cyrus is just the man for the job. He is a stuck in the mud, and crazy to boot. He also can swear like a sailor or maybe a sexy man looking for some hot loving. These two just can’t seem to get along, that is until Cyrus sees a man with potential and heat. He wants this man, now all he has to do is to get the guts to say something. Or maybe just make a move now that would be hot.

I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by these two amazing authors. Now I have had the chance to read many books by these two and I have got to say that this one is my favorite so far. I would definitely recommend it.

Review: It’s very sad knowing that kids are always dealt the bad end of the stick when both parents have died in an automobile accident. The sadness, the questions (why?) and what will happen to us? Cash’s brother and Brad’s sister have both died in a car accident and have left 6 kids behind and their will stipulates that both of them are now co-guardians of the children. Cash owns the family ranch in Texas and Brad works as a Video Game Developer and lives three thousand miles away from Cash’s home in Texas.

Cash wants to take the kids back home to his ranch to live and Brad wants them to live in the house where they lived before the accident that killed their parents. He doesn’t want to up root their lives. Neither men can come to a decision regarding the kids and one night after a heated argument and they fought, it leads to a night of passion. After their passionate night, they’ve decided how and where the kids will live, but they still have a big obstacle in their way. Brad’s mother. Will they be able to dismantle the plans that Brad’s mother have to take the kids from them, or will the kids loose another set of parents to their grandmother’s bigoted hatred.

Do You Trust Me?

by

B.G. Thomas

The path to happiness starts with acceptance, and sometimes the chance for a bright, loving future means letting go of the past.

All his life, Neil Baxter has buried a large part of himself—the part that’s attracted to other men. He married a woman and denied that side of him existed. And he plans to keep right on pretending to be straight after his beloved wife has passed away.

To help him deal with his grief, Neil’s sister-in-law convinces him to vacation at a dude ranch. There, Neil meets Cole Thompson, a young, gorgeous, unabashedly gay wrangler—who is unabashedly attracted to Neil. And try as he might, Neil cannot deny he feels the same way. But desire soon becomes something more profound as the two men get to know each other. Cole is much more than a sexy cowboy: he’s kind, spiritual, and intelligent. In fact, he’s perfect for Neil… except he’s a man, and Neil isn’t ready to let go of a lifetime of denial. If he cannot find the courage to be true to himself, he might let something wonderful slip through his fingers.

So, when a situation arises that splits the two men apart, it’s up to Eli to keep the home fires burning as Jesse sets off to follow his dreams on the rodeo circuit.

But how long can a man continue to stoke the fire before the flames die out?

Reviewer: Veronica

Review: I have read many books from this author and I love all of her books. Eli tells us his life story about his family and the Love of his life Jesse. They’ve both known each other and have been friends from kindergarten through High school and are now lovers. Jesse doesn’t have a good relationship with his family and decides that he wants to leave the town that they live in and go follow his dreams on the rodeo circuit and wants Eli to go with him.

Eli can’t go with Jesse as he has to take of the family ranch and his mom and siblings. I found that Jesse is very self-centered, he’s off living his dreams, and wants Eli to wait for him and doesn’t care that he’s breaking Eli’s heart. Eli decides that the time has come that he will either have to talk with Jesse about their relationship, that is if they still have one together, or let Jesse go so that he can live his life on the circuit.

As with all of this author’s books, I would gladly recommend this book to whoever wants a short story about partners that have to find the way back together.
