Summary

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.

DNF for me.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I had to stop listening to the audiobook.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I don't know, didn't get that far in, will be picking up the ebook though as I liked the premise.

What didn’t you like about Dorian Bane’s performance?

I haven't listened to anything narrated by Dorian Bane before and I probably wouldn't buy another book narrated by him, certainly not with the accents he used for this book.

Any additional comments?

I can't comment on the story as I didn't get far enough in to understand any of it, for me, the narration completely ruined what sounded like it was a fun book, I will buy the ebook though.

Great Performance of a sweet story

I bought this book because one of my favorite narrators was performing it; and he did not disappoint. This is a very sweet, light and fun listen with a predictable but very enjoyable story. It is the story of two OTT gay "rednecks" (think Jeff Foxworthy) who find love and a baby. I really plays up the "country" aspect of these cowboys lives, but has a solid sweet romance in the middle of all the "good deals" and meddling family. Dorian Bane really elevated this story. He delivers a great performance of the various country characters, including the "moms." If you are looking for a story that puts a smile on your face from beginning to end, look no farther.

One of my favorite rerelistens

This is one to listen to if you are looking for low angst, sweet, sexy, with a great light story,and with a funny cast of characters thrown into the mix . I absolutely ADORE this story, and HOT DAYUM Dorian Bane is a pleasure to eargasm.. I mean listen to. Man could read a cookbook and make it sound like the sexiest of erotica. The combination of funny, sweet, sexy, friends to lovers with a baby for them to love makes this one a MUST LISTEN to, and a great addition to any audible library.

5 stars = I freaking LOVED this audiobook!!!

I received a free copy of this audiobook to listen to and review for Wicked Reads.

B.A. Tortuga is my go-to author for cowboy romances. While Two Cowboys and a Baby is on the softer side of romance, despite its soap-opera twist, the author does not disappoint. Actually, for a standalone title, the story is perhaps more complex and convoluted than I’m accustomed to as Tortuga succeeds in packing in several themes. Abandoned baby. Unrequited love. Two gay daddies. Reassessing one’s priorities in life after an injury. The big one I cannot say because on the off chance that someone else hasn’t revealed that spoiler, I won’t be the one to do it, but rest assured, it is straight out of a soap opera. And yet Tortuga pulls it all off, including a wink and a nod to the unbelievability of a classic soap opera twist.

As the blurb states, Hoss wakes one morning to find a baby abandoned on his doorstep. Instead of being able to hand the child off to the authorities, Hoss winds up accepting responsibility for the infant for the weekend. And then the following week. And then that next weekend. And the next thing you know, Hoss has become the little girl’s unofficial foster dad because the town sheriff and the town doc are trying to figure out who the mom is without getting child services involved. As fantastical as it sounds, I can soooooo totally see the sequence of events that play out in the book actually happening in a small rural town. When the locals close ranks, a small town in the middle of nowhere can operate like its own kingdom – for better and for worse. Unsurprisingly, the longer the little girl is in Hoss’ care, the more attached he gets. What is surprising, especially for Hoss, is learning that his straight best friend, Bradley, ain’t nearly as straight as he let Hoss believe. That shock is only the first of many that Tortuga continues to throw at Hoss, keeping the man on his toes constantly. To be honest, I’m not sure what surprised me more – the circumstances that led to Hoss and Bradley’s falling out, the actual falling out, or what led to Bradley pulling his head out of his derriere and making amends to Hoss. Yep, I implied it and I’ll outright say it, Bradley was in the wrong and his pride kept him in the wrong. As this is not only a B.A. Tortuga cowboy romance, but also a Dreamspun Desires title, you can rest assured that a happy ending is delivered, but it is one bumpy, twisty road to ride to get there.

As much as I enjoyed Dorian Bane’s narrative performance in a paranormal romance last week, the man does the cowboy drawl beautifully. Just as Tortuga is my go-to author for cowboy romances, Bane has quickly become my favorite narrator for western romances. I was very impressed with Bane’s ability to create so many distinct voices for a rather large cast of side characters, all while keeping those Texas drawls and twangs in play. Not an easy feat, I’d assume, yet it enhances the listening experience and makes an already enjoyable story even more entertaining. For me, Two Cowboys and a Baby was classic Tortuga and a perfect story for showcasing Bane’s narrative talents. I look forward to more from both the author and the narrator, especially if there’s another collaboration between them – THAT would be just dandy.

Could've been better

Book & Author: Audiobook - Two Cowboys and a Baby
Author: BA Tortuga
Narrator: Dorian Bane
Rating: 3.5 stars

I wasn’t sure what to feel about this book after I was done listening to it, or well, while I was listening to it. I just kept having to remind myself that it was a Dreamspun books and the tropes and storyline are generally a bit over the top. And this was over the top with cherries on top.

The storyline was cute and slightly finny is crude bodily function jokes are your thing. I did like that Hoss and Bradley called sex fight club so that they didn’t say sex in front of the baby. It was definitely a sweet out for you and friends to lovers romance with a cute baby and clueless men.

Also with it being a B.A. Tortuga cowboy book, there was bound to be lots of country speak and twang. Something closer to the old west televisions shows my mom likes to watch. Basically over the top. Sometimes this made it difficult to understand the narrator because as a girl who lives in Texas I don’t even hear people speak like that on the regular, so it took a bit to figure bits out.

Both characters were sweet and silly and sometimes dumb and gross. I feel like it was very much written as a cowboy romcom which is great if that’s what you are looking for. Their love for that little baby was a beautiful thing, and I thought it brought out a side of them we probably wouldn’t have seen otherwise. I love the relationship between Bradley and Hoss since friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes.

Fair

It had too much cussing in it. I encourage everyone to listen to the sample clip before purchasing. In my opinion, the wrong narrator was selected. I think that it would've been a more enjoyable book with a different narrator.
