A little bundle of joy means big changes.
Hoss McMasters has a working ranch, a bull riding career, a nosy momma, and a best friend he’s been in love with since he can remember. He’s a busy, happy cowboy, living the good life.
Then one morning he discovers a baby on his doorstep.
Well, Hoss does what any reasonable man would do—he calls his momma and his buddy, Sheriff Pooter, and they head to the clinic to see if Doc knows of any suddenly not-so-pregnant girls.
In the meantime, Hoss and his best friend, Bradley, have their hands full trying to care for an infant, run a ranch, and deal with the sudden confession that Bradley doesn’t hate Hoss for coming out to him in high school. In fact, Bradley’s been trying to catch Hoss’s attention for damn near a decade.
I've said this many times already, but it bears repeating. Dreamspinner Press's Dreamspun Desires line is my little slice Heaven. I love the tropes, I love the story lines, and I each book is its own bit of perfection. Even if I don't personally fall in love with each one of them, there's something so comforting about knowing a book will follow a certain formula. The journey and the characters might be different, but in the end, you'll be satisfied. B.A. Tortuga's newest contribution to the Dreamspun line, Two Cowboys and a Baby is pretty much exactly what you'd suspect just from the title alone.
Hoss and Bradley have been best friends forever. They're cowboys living in Texas and most is right in their area of the world. Until a baby shows up on Hoss's doorstep. Then things, as you would expect, take a turn toward the stumbling and bumbling as these two try to navigate all the ins and outs of taking care of a surprise baby. There are some light and fluffy moments, but not everything is sunshine and rainbows for these two. Brad's reactions and the many times there were misunderstandings and just plain ole' not talking left me more than a tad frustrated. Their pasts were somewhat glossed over and left me with more questions than answers and I sure would have appreciated a bit more back story between these two, though there isn't any doubt of their feelings toward one another.
There are a few somewhat unrealistic twists and turns as we figure out who the mother of the baby is, but it totally works with the kind of book/story Two Cowboys and a Baby is. Mostly sweet and light, with a bit of angst thrown in, these two cowboys will definitely leave you with a smile on your face. Best friends to lovers, with a surprise baby, I mean, really, there's so much to love here. Be sure to check it out.
