Publisher's Summary

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 their problems? 

Roan Carmichael never got his master's 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.

Real-Life Reality Show Love Story

Reality show shenanigans and unexpected love are on offer in Indra Vaughn and Leta Blake’s witty take on a ‘The Bachelor’-esque ‘Queer Meets Spouse’ production. I don’t watch much reality TV, but I sure did enjoy this sweet and comedic take on it.

Walker, the ranch-owning bachelor, and Roan, one of the show’s suitors are only doing the show for money. Neither one is looking for love, but it finds them anyway. The spark of attraction is immediate but their story is a slow-burn. In the meantime, the authors deliver some cute rom-com hijinks, show producers manufacturing ‘drama’ and a few tear-inducing sad moments. But it all ends in a long-awaited steamy scene and a happily-ever-after.

John Solo! The voice-acting by John Solo for this book is truly one of the best performances that I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. He gets a well-deserved 5+ stars from me.

This audiobook came to me, by my request, as a free review copy. These are my voluntary opinions on it.

Highly recommended.

Enjoyable fake boyfriends story

I enjoyed this take on the fake boyfriends trope. A reality show where both main characters are initially in it for the money makes for a perfectly reasonable set up for the plot. Watching these two who initially go together like chalk and cheese on top of all the cynical, manipulative things that go on behind the scenes in a reality show was a lot of fun. John Solo is the perfect narrator for this. He was a perfect fit for the snark and humor but also captured the real emotions in a lovely way.

Funny, steamy, lovely!

I loved this book so much. It’s based on an imaginary gay dating reality show, so there’s a lot of moments of doubt if what the characters are doing is genuine or fake. Walker and Rohan’s instant connection, though, is anything but fake, everyone can see and feel that. They click immediately and the way they care for each other is beautiful!
Loved John Solo as usual!

Fun read

The reality TV angle added just the right amount of drama and tension. Loved to hate the production folks and their meddling ways, without it going too over the top (mostly). The romance was sweet and despite all the show shenanigans felt like it developed organically between the two leads. There are a few of the contestents I'd be very interested to see come back for their own seasons of the show. There is on page parental death, which kept this from being entirely a light read, but it was a fun read, with great narration.

Walker and Roan

Walker needs money and has signed up for a Reality TV show where he is to find a husband. But Walker is only in it for the money, same as most contestants. Roan needs the money for his Mum's expensive Cancer treatment, but little did either man know, they would fall in love. Truly wonderful story.

The reality of love

Not a huge fan of those reality shows on TV. I mean, we all know those things are fake with the cameras everywhere and engineered drama. But I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Walker and Roane have instant chemistry. My heart broke for Roane when he got the call about his mom, but I held out hope Walker would do the right thing. Lovely story! John Solo is also quickly becoming a narrator I look for. He has a great voice for listening to.

Nice

The narration is good, clear pronunciation and read with feelings, although sometimes a little to much.

The storyline is good and I liked the characters descriptions, they felt realistic and had different personalities. In the beginning it was a lot of characters to learn about but enjoyed it.

The chemistry between Roan and Walker is good and I feel the love growing.

Nice 4 stars story

Cowboy Seeks Husband

Such a cute premise, one I’m surprised hasn’t be done more. The story was such a cute, sweet story with heartbreak and humanity thrown in. It worked. While the steam was there, and most will probably love it, something about it felt off to me from the characters themselves. I’m sure it’s just the mood I’m in today. The steam was still good, and overall the book was a great experience. John Solo rocked the performance. I’d definitely recommend.

Wonderful spin on reality television

I absolutely loved this story. Walker and Roan were perfect for each other.
Both had struggles to overcome and there were some misunderstandings along the way.
The producers were a major hindrance to the blossoming relationship but thankfully they were able to fight for and obtain their HEA which was so richly deserved.
John Solo is one of my favorite narrators in the genre and has delivered a wonderful narration as usual.

A Cowboy’s romance

Reality show... a cowboy and a good son. Walter is the bachelor at a gay tv show, where Roan is a contestant. They are not looking for love though. Each have their own agenda. What they don’t know is love will find them. There is drama, hot guys, tender moments, annoying producers, a great step-mama and a romance between a cowboy and a city boy. Enjoyed it specially with John Solo’s voice like music to my ears.

Great

Another great story by Leta Blake and Indra Vaughn. Roan and Walker where amazing characters to get to know and the journey with them was pleasurable. John Solo did a super job with the narration. If you like this story also check Vespertine by the same authors.

Loved This

Cowboy Seeks Husband by Leta Blake & Indra Vaughn.

I have listened to Leta Blake's work before and always enjoyed it, but Indra is a new to me author.
This was no exception.

Although I did squirm a little at the title for the reality show (Queer seeks Spouse) I liked seeing the inside workings of how a Reality TV show is made.
Walker is pure southern gentleman which I loved.
Roan is just Roan, a lovely young guy who is struggling to look after his Mama who is ill with cancer.
Roan applied to go on this show to get the money to pay for a new treatment for his Mama, and didn't intend to fall for the batchelor.
But the best laid plans of mice and men!
It's the story of them falling on Love
I was thinking at first Andy (The director) was okay and pretty cool. I had Molly's number straighaway.
But it was a happy ending all round as most stories are and I like that. I don't like to cry ugly tears in any story.

This was read by John Solo and he did a fantastic job with Walker's southern accent. I like listening to John Solo, he has such a mellow voice.

Not Much Reality in Reality TV.

A fantastic heartwarming and at times sad MM love story. Walker Reed was put forward to be the bachelor for a new queer reality series and Roan Carmichael is one of the competitors taking part to vie gor Walkers attention. They both have other reasons than finding a love match to do this. I laughed and cried while listening to this fantastic story brought to life by the one and only John Solo, who yet again nailed the narration.

Awesome

This one was something unlike what I have ever listened to before. The characters had some really strong heat. The steamy scenes are definitely full of heat and The chemistry was entertaining. I loved how different the concept of this story was, and I cant wait to listen to more by this author and the narrator as the narration was also top notch.

A Spectacular TV Courtship

Cowboy Seeks Husband is a delightful standalone romance that was filled with hijinks, shenanigans, tenderness, and above all: love. The plot setup was really interesting: two men desperate for money sign up for a reality dating show not expecting anything but money. Falling in love for real was not part of the script, but the connection between Walker and Roan was too strong to be confined by TV production rules. I found the reality TV portion really fascinating, especially how Walker and Roan had to be creative to escape the constrictions that have been placed on them. There was also some very emotional scenes that really touched my heart. This book has angst and sorrow, but the pain those scenes bring is soothed away by the sweet and tender romance between the two men. Absolutely loved the epilogue and wished it was longer and that there was a second or third epilogue – heck I would LOVE a sequel.

John Solo narrated this audiobook and did a fantastic job as always. John’s voice was perfect for both Walker and Roan, and he made the steamy moments even sexier. I loved the performance and could hardly stop listening. Overall, the audiobook’s narration, storyline, and production was so well done that it was a joy to listen to.
