Audiobook Review: Cowboy in the Crosshairs (Turquoise, New Mexico #1) by B.A. Tortuga

Once upon a time, a prince lived in a magical kingdom called Turquoise, New Mexico.

Well, really, TJ is a small-town police chief. Every Friday he holds court in the diner with the local holy roller, the art colonists, and the horsey people. But the Benes, who own the rodeo company, keep to themselves. TJ knows, because he was once hot and heavy with the oldest Bene son.

When Wacey Bene gets trampled by a remuda and comes home to heal, he’s none too happy to run into TJ, or his two little boys and their momma. The story might end there—if it wasn’t for some pesky bastard trying to kill Wacey.

The law steps in, and the townsfolk are cross about somebody messing with one of their own.

But once the bad guy is put away, can TJ and Wacey make their place in this wild and eccentric town a permanent one?

At the risk of a full-on fangirl flail, I just love BA and her New Mexico cowboys! This book was a must-listen for me, and I was not disappointed.

TJ had tried his best to live the life everyone else thought he should. But finally, he came out to his wife who promptly divorced him and they settled into the life of two friends who love each other and co-parent their children, but aren’t in-love with each other. Such a lovely model we can all aspire to!

Wacey was TJ’s first love, and there is still a little bit of something inside TJ that flexed at the news that Wacey was home and hurting.

The love match was inevitable, and all would be well apart from a murderous pain in the ass trying to get Wacey.

The writing is just as you would expect, clever, funny and a little bit sexy. The ending is (eventually) happy and the lovely way everything works out is just exactly what I need from a romance story.

There is a plethora of strong characters in the book, the supporting cast is stellar and Dorian Bane does a wonderful job with the narration. It is exactly as I thought it would be: wonderful!

Highly recommended.

I was given a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
