A Roughstock Story, #5

Amorzinhos is the fifth book in BA Tortuga's Roughstock series. It's a direct sequel to the fourth book in the series Doce. So if you have not read the fourth book you will be very lost. I also recommend reading the other books in the series as some characters from previous books do appear.

Joa and Balta are back, but this time they are bringing a third into the relationship named Raul. Raul barely speaks any English and is crazy about Joa. I did enjoy the relationship between Joa and Balta in this story, and even the relationship between Joa, Balta, and Raul to an extent. I honestly don't believe Raul is an equal partner in the relationship, and that upsets me a little because what I loved about Doce was the equal partnership in Joa and Balta's relationship.

I did not believe Balta's reasoning for bringing in a third made sense. It just felt forced to me. Another thing I did not like was the fact that there was so much sex, but little character or plot development unlike Doce. I still had to look up Brazilian words which got annoying. I recommend this title for hardcore Roughstock fans as the other titles have to be read first.

Book Blurb for Amorzinhos

Balta loves Joa more than he loves himself, which is saying a lot. He knows that Joaquim loves him, too, but he also knows that sometimes Joa needs someone who can be more of a friend than a lover.

Which is where Raul comes in. Raul is new to the bullriding circuit, and needs their help. But he's also kind, fond of Joa, and smoking hot. Balta decides that Raul is just what he and Joa need to even out the balance of power, but will Joaquim and Raul be as easy to convince that they all belong together? Sequel to the popular Arcana, Doce.
