A Stella Review : Cowboy Seeks Husband by Leta Blake and Indra Vaughn


RATING 4 out of 5 stars

Walker Reed’s Louisiana cattle ranch is in debt after costly repairs from hurricane damage. To get the money, his family schemes to make Walker the star of a new bachelor reality series: Queer Seeks Spouse.. How hard can it be to fake interest in a dozen handsome men for a few weeks in exchange for enough money to solve all of his problems?

Roan Carmichael never got his Masters degree after his mother was diagnosed with cancer. With medical bills piling up, and a costly experimental treatment available, Roan signs on to be a suitor on Queer Seeks Spouse. While he hates having to leave his sick mother long enough to win the cash for her treatment, he’s willing to do whatever it takes.

Can two men who are just in it for the money fake their way into real and lasting love? Cowboy Seeks Husband, the latest book by Vespertine authors Leta Blake and Indra Vaughn, features a cowboy, a hipster, opposites attract, steamy scenes, and heart tugging moments that will leave you wanting more.

As soon as I saw Leta Blake and Indra Vaughn were going to release a book together, I knew it was going to be awesome and I wasn’t disappointed. They both can write so good and together they were spectacular. Not once I was lost with the reading, I was so deep into the story, I finished Cowboy Seeks Husband too soon. The plot they wrote was interesting and funny, they delivered a well done novel, with its up and down moments.

I adored both Roan and Walker, for different reasons they caught my heart. The way they were devoted to their families, how hard they worked for their needs and then they were so brave to fight for what they want, even if being part of the  Queer Seeks Spouse reality show wasn’t at all what they had in minds. Nonetheless, the attraction and chemistry between them, urged Roan and Walker to know each other better and ignore some of the tv show rules.

There were some great second characters too, starting with the other contenders, and then the main characters’ parents, all of them so caring and sweet. I laugh a lot, I shed a couple of things when the unavoidable happened, and later I was delighted to see how happy the MCs were.

The only reason why I’m not giving the novel an higher rating is that, although I liked the book a lot, I didn’t feel totally satisfied with how much I got of Roan and Walker time together, I needed more, I think I would have preferred to know a little more about them after the HEA.

That said, I truly hope to get more about them or the other characters I met.

The cover art by Dar Albert is awesome, I so love the style, the colors, the font. It’s so cute!
