Blurb: ER doctor Dusty Lowry grew up in a conservative rural Texas family that has never quite forgiven him for staying in New Mexico after his stint in the Army. Paramedic Nate Miller, Dusty’s best friend since their early Army days, has a hippie momma, a tiny apartment, and is in lust with his buddy. When their other Army friend, Kyle, gets married, they start thinking about settling down. In fact, they both know what they want: each other. Too bad they’ve never shared that goofy little fact.
A trip to visit Dusty’s family in Texas changes everything, and Dusty and Nate aren’t sure where to go from there. Good thing they’re smart guys, and between a series of bombings that target first responders, their friend Kyle’s wife getting pregnant, and more than one bowl of guacamole, they begin to figure out how to have a relationship.
But as the bombings get closer to home, Nate and Dusty must navigate love and commitment before they lose their chance.
Review: Nate and Dusty have loved each other since their stint in the military, though both men have kept this a secret. When Kyle their other best friend married, both Dusty and Nate start thinking about their lives and wanting what Kyle has. When bombs start hitting first responders both Dusty and Nate, realize they may lose more than a friend.
Bombs and Guacamole is one of B.A. Tortugas best works yet. The story started out funny from the first page. I laughed so much in this book. I cheered on Nate and Dusty to get together and held my breath every time there was another bombing. This book has it all. A great romance, a bit of mystery and suspense, enough humor to lighten that and lets not forget some hot man-sex.
If you are looking for a book to make you laugh, a feel good romance, some suspense, and just the right amount of loving, I recommend this. I will warn you, once you start you won’t want to put it down.
