Romance and Suspense
Saving Hope: A Billionaire Secret Baby R... Saving Hope: A Billionaire Secret Baby Romance - Lucy Wild

Saving Hope is a fast-paced, quick read - about two hours read time. As I've come to expect with this author, the pace of the story, combined with a bit of suspense kept me turning pages to see how things would play out. It is instalove, but that tends to be the norm in romances of this length and pacing, so it was expected.
Even considering the length of the book, the beginning of the story felt a bit rushed to me. In all honesty, I was having trouble connecting with the characters and wasn't sure if I was going to like this one. There were things about Rob and Hope's first night together that just didn't ring true for me. But, there was that element of suspense to keep things moving and I was interested enough to plunge ahead.
Once the mystery of who Hope is and why she's running started to really play out, my interest picked up. Like other books by Wild, I found myself engrossed in the story at that point and was able to connect with a story much better in the second half of Rob and Hope's tale. That second half of the book is what bumped this one from a three to a four-star read for me.
Overall, while this isn't my favorite book by Lucy Wild, it is worth the read.

Surprise Baby, Indiana Wake
Mail Order Bride: The Secret Baby: Clean... Mail Order Bride: The Secret Baby: Clean, and Inspirational Western Historical Romance (Mail Order Bride Murder Mystery Book 7) - Indiana Wake,Belle Fiffer

I really enjoyed this clean, Historical, Western, Romance.I voluntarily chose to review this book and I've given it a 5* rating. In the middle of this, and as heartbreaking as it was to some, part of the mystery was solved, a secret was shared and some of this story was resolved. So there was a lot going on in this story and I'm ready to move on.

REVIEW TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - The Virgin Cowboy Billionaire's Secret Baby by Lauren Gallagher
The Virgin Cowboy Billionaire's Secret Baby - Lauren Gallagher
The Virgin Cowboy Billionaire's Secret Baby has GOT to be one of the longest book titles I've ever seen! And it does, in fact, give you the synopsis of the whole book. Matt and Dara were best friends, but things changed when they grew up. They ended up going their separate ways, and for ten years, they never spoke. Now, Dara's life is in mayhem, so she has returned home to be near her parents. Matt has also returned home, to be near to his family and for health reasons. So you just know that these two will bump into each other very soon.
 
The chemistry between these two sparks once they actually make a move. It is easy to see that without that first move being made, neither of them would have thought of the other in that particular way. Which makes this a very interesting read as their feelings start to change. I was also glad to see 'the mothers' put into their places by both Matt and Dara as a united front. That was definitely overdue!
 
This is an easy read, with low angst. Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, I would recommend this to anyone wanting an easy Sunday afternoon read.

Expect pure friends to lovers cowboy fluff and laughs with Two Cowboys and a Baby
Two Cowboys and a Baby (Dreamspun Desires Book 30) - BA Tortuga
Tag Team review with Sara

3.5 Hearts
--

"Wings?"
"Only if they don't make you poot. Buffalo sauce poots make the baby Jesus cry."
"Well sure, nothing rules out ass-fucking like buffalo poots. 'Cept maybe Taco Bell."

Expect pure friends to lovers cowboy fluff and laughs with Two Cowboys and a Baby by BA Tortuga.

With a baby on the doorstep trope thrown on top!



No babies were harmed. Promise.


Set in Texas, this book features a little bull rider/cowboy with the nickname of Hoss (his real name is Wyatt Earp!) and his childhood best bud/digger/cowboy, Bradley. See Hoss is out of the closet and is painfully in love with straight best friend, even after his friend stopped talking to him after coming out to Bradley. After that year in high school, the two continued to go back to the way things were: being best friends.

Thing is all the time Hoss has pined for Bradley, if he looked a little closer, he might have noticed the same looks from Bradley.

Unrequited love fans out there? It's all fluffed out in the latest addition in the Dreamspun Desires line.



Giddy up the fluff!


The unrequited love with my straight best friend angle gets help from the unwanted baby plot. While the two cowboys share like feelings, they're two clueless to do anything about it. Thankfully, the little blonde baby girl on Hoss' doorstep helps bring them together.

The girl's mother just leaves her and Joanie, the adorable pet of Hoss, alerts her owner of the little bundle. Reading Hoss come to grips with his life changing as he knows it once the little girl arrives is hilarious. Hoss is a simple man whose only contact with babies are with baby farm animals.

So not the same.

But too funny.

Bradley, Hoss's #1, comes to the rescue as the two try to hunt down the little baby's birth mother. With the the help of the small town's Sheriff Pooter (I kid you not), Doc and Hoss's Momma and a whole slew of hilarious side characters. The country twang just oozes through this book's pores. I found myself charmed with it.




The romance doesn't happen immediately. And I definitely got the sense of the cowboys shared lives prior to the baby.

They sat together, arm to arm, not looking at each other. Then B reached out, twining their fingers together, holding on like they'd done this a thousand times.

Reading them slowly become a unit with the baby who Hoss didn't originally want, but now needs, is the magic for this title.

"Is this the way it normally happens with two guys, Hoss?"
"I'm usually the handjob in the barn type of guy, B. I've never been the type to be on love,so I don't know."
"I've been in love with you since high school. I don't know how the handjob in the barn even works."

It's not a smooth sailing; there is a big misunderstanding that provides a solid speed bump on their path to love. But the baby is the glue to making Hoss and Bradley stick.

And then there is the mega plot twist that took into into OTT-ville. Seriously, couldn't believe half of that happening in real life.

Thank goodness it's fiction, huh?

The crazy that gets twisted in, made for a fun read. Plus, it's why the Dreamspun line works for me. It's a good time that doesn't take itself too seriously while delivery cracky sweet romance.

The story isn't without minor issues but overall, the good outweighed the bad. It wasn't a life changing read, just something you can unplug your brain with.



Obligatory yeehaw!
