Which is why he’s devastated when one of his favorite riders gets hurt, and he’s determined to help the young man ride again. Dillon Walsh is the arena entertainer for the bull riding tour, and he wants to help. He also wants Coke, has been admiring the man for a long time. He hasn’t made a move on Coke for fear of messing up their friendship, but when he finds out Coke might feel the same way, Dillon has to try to win Coke over.

Dillon is like a wet dream for Coke, and the two of them have a great time getting to know each other better, at least until the danger of their job threatens to come between them. Will Dillon and Coke be able to help their friend and weather the problems that blow their way?

2.0 out of 5 stars And a Smile Oct. 29 2015
By The Jeep Diva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I mentioned in my review of Blind Ride that I was not going to move further into the Roughstock series. There is a huge curiosity factor here that caught me. It is a huge something that was left hanging at the end of Blind Ride. It’s the how is Jason going to perform as a secretly blind bull rider. I want to know this. That is not in And a Smile. And a Smile is Coke and Dillon’s story. Jase and Bax have small secondary roles where they have a little page time bringing Dillon in on helping them hide the blindness from the cameras and sponsors. So to answer the blind Jason on a bull question, it does not happen in this book.

Who Coke and Dillion truly are as men, how they are written as characters, and how they are seen by their friends are so many different things that their characters become confusing. I read them as the really old crusty guy and the twink for so much of this book. Their friends see them a gramps and the guy who freaks everyone out. They actually are a bull fighter and a rodeo clown who have a few years in age between them and a whole lot of sexual chemistry. They love the work they do with the rodeo. These men are passionate about the careers they have chosen. They take their jobs very seriously.

Going into And a Smile and expecting some conclusion on it or even some momentum in the direction of a conclusion and not receiving anything of that nature is a big disappointment. Getting to know Coke and seeing him get a happily ever after didn’t help to fill that void on what I was expecting. Dillon and Coke reading as so many different things made it difficult to ever get a good grasp on their character. Overall I do not believe that this series is working for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! Oct. 27 2016
By Rina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5* Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.

Coke Pharris couldn’t ride the bulls so he’s instead spent his life protecting and looking after those that do. One man in particular, Dillon Walsh, while not a rider, has him looking more than he ought to but Coke just can’t seem to help himself. Too bad the entertainer deserves someone younger and less scarred than the ‘old man’ at the rodeo. Dillon may look young but he knows what he wants and what he wants is Coke. All that talk about being old is just ridiculous as the two men are only a few year apart in age and when Dillon sees an chance to let Coke know how he feels, he takes it. Their work, while fun, is often times dangerous, however, and when one bull too many gets some hits in on both men, Dillon will have to work to ensure his cowboy understands he isn’t going anywhere.

Oh, this was such a great follow up to the first book in the series! In the previous story we got to know Coke through his helping Jase and Bax after Jase’s accident and he was such a sweet man wanting to do whatever he could for ‘his boys’. Now we really got to see him shine and I just loved every bit of it. :) Coke and Dillon were such a great match and it was just great to see Coke getting taken care of for once since he believes its his purpose in life to take care of everyone else. I will totally admit that I thought Coke was a lot older than he actually is since he’s always calling the other guys ‘son’ and he’s referred to as the ‘old man’ a lot so it was really surprising to find that he isn’t even forty years old! I totally agreed with Dillon’s approach on insisting that Coke isn’t old and that people need to stop treating him as if he is. All the hot sex may have helped to reinforce that message but neither myself or Coke are complaining on that front, I’m sure!

The connection between the men was great and totally believable and I enjoyed every minute I spent reading their story. You do get to catch up with Jase and Bax from the first book, which was nice since I was still left wondering how they were doing with their injuries, and while there was a bit of drama included in the storyline it wasn’t overwhelming at all and added a nice break from the overall easy going plot. I loved this every bit as much as the first book and I’m really looking forward to reading the next one in the series. :) If you enjoy cowboys or books that feature the rodeo, you’re sure to enjoy this series but I would recommend reading them in order to get the most out of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Was given this book for free from Inked Rainbow Reads for an honest review Sept. 27 2016
By Natosha - Published on Amazon.com

I have skipped around a bit in this series instead of reading it in order but nonetheless I went back and read the few books that I had not read yet in the series.

BA Tortuga is such an amazing author to be able to get into the guys mannerisms the way that she has. When reading this book you can definitely feel this whole cowboy vibe by the way these men act and by the way they talk. They have the southern charm to them and that makes the book so much more enjoyable and believable.

I have to say as far as the characters in this book goes I fell in love with Dillion from the get go. Dillion has been in love with Coke for a while but has always kept it to himself out of fear of bringing tension to their team.

Coke is so hard on himself. He thinks he is to old and to broken to be good enough for someone especially someone as special as Dillion.

Dillion does not give up though and is determined to make Coke realize how good they can be together.

BA Tortuga has the ability to draw the readers in and make them feel like part of the book. I love that about an author. This book can be read as part of the series or it can be read as a standalone. Definitely a good read!!

5.0 out of 5 stars SOOO incredible sweet. She said no big May 2 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Okay, I cheated. When I saw that book four was coming up for review I first said (to myself) why are we on book four? How have I missed the first three?! Then I panicked, I didn’t want to miss it, but knew I didn’t have time to read all three. So I asked the author! And BTW, SOOO incredible sweet. She said no big, read book two and then four. They can be read as stand alone. But, you start the relationship in book two.

So here we are, my review of book two. With out reading book one. I have to say, Yes, completely understood what was going on, so yes to the Stand alone question.

Coke is a beaten up but not down rodeo clown. And the ring leader of this motley crew. He’s the oldest but only by a few years, but plays that role to the hilt. And so does everyone else.

Dillon has had a crush on Coke for, forever but refuses to act because he doesn’t want to mess up the dynamics of the crew.

We’ve a lot of players in the book, and even though we concentrate on Coke and Dillon, the ones to the background are very important, Jason and AJ, Nate and the rest.

I loved the slow build between these two. The falling asleep on each other is classic. How Coke finally lets his guard down only to be wrecked by his own ability to quick to judge.

The writing style in this one is very different from the others, B.A. really got into the cowboy, down south, mannerism, lingo and total vibe. Loved it! And the fact that these men pulled out an HEA even after all that nonsense was brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars = I freaking LOVED this book!!! Dec 15 2015
By Angela S Goodrich - Published on Amazon.com

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

While you can probably get away with reading And a Smile as a standalone, I strongly recommend reading Blind Ride first because while this is Coke’s story, there is a lot of carryover from book one as Coke is still strongly involved with Jason’s recovery. It will also give you a much better frame of reference for many of Coke’s strong reactions toward incidents inside the ring and out. If you’ve read Blind Ride you’ll be happy to see that Jason and Andy have prominent roles in this installment in the series and we get to see how the guys are faring.

Having met Coke in book one, I was looking forward to seeing the old cowboy (his characterization, not mine) get his chance at love. As it turns out, Dillon Walsh is perfect for him. The rodeo clown might be small in stature, but he’s big in heart, personality, and want, because he wants Coke something fierce. I loved that everything Coke saw as a negative about himself, like his age and his scars, were things that Dillon loved about him. I also enjoyed that Dillon had no problem pointing out to everyone, Coke included, that there were only a few years’ difference between them despite his youthful appearance. Thankfully Dillon is willing to put himself out there and make Coke aware of his attraction, shooting down all of Coke’s objections, and proving that Coke is not too old for love or seriously hot sex. Ride ‘em cowboy!

There was a lot to love about And a Smile. Watching Coke and Dillon’s relationship grow was obviously the best part because the men complemented one another so well. They just fit. But on top of that, I enjoyed seeing how Dillon worked with Jason and how his personal circle of friends gave him an insight on how to work with Jason that Coke and Andy were missing because they were too close to the situation. It not only gave Coke and Andy some direction, but it also helped bolster Jason’s confidence in what he could accomplish. The misunderstanding that led to Coke thinking that Dillon had gotten tired of the old cowboy broke my heart – for both men. Thankfully, Dillon’s job as a rodeo clown and having to stare down a thousand pounds or more of ticked off bull meant he had no problem tracking down his heartbroken cowboy and making sure he heard the truth. Gotta love a determined man. And a Smile is another great installment of hard working men and steamy cowboy lovin’ in the Roughstock series and I am so glad I won’t have to wait too long to read the next book in the series, File Gumbo.
