Jason Scott is having a good time with his life right now, but there is a fly in the ointment.  As of today, Jason is on his way to the finals on the rodeo circuit and his sponsors are being good to him.  However, as good as it is to travel and room with his best friend Bax, it’s also a damn torture.  Being so close to the man Jason lusts after and not being able to do anything is bound to drive him nuts.  Life, however, has other plans for Jason – plans that he might not understand or be able to live with.  As Jason is finishing one his best rides of the season, he ends up getting slammed in the head by the bull’s horns, leaving him in a bad way.

As Jason discovers that his injury has left him blind, he sinks into despair.  However, Bax will have none of that, even if it means putting his career on hold.  As Bax sets out to help Jason cope with his injury, Jason discovers that his interest in his best friend is returned.  But will this be enough to keep Jason from giving up?

Andy Baxter has been on the bull-riding circuit for a long time, long enough to know that he is getting too old for it.  But traveling around with Jason is not something he is ready to give up, especially since it gives him the chance to at least look at Jason, even if he’d rather do more.  When Jason gets injured and it looks like his blindness might be permanent, Bax will do anything to help his friend cope with the changes in his life, while showing him that some things can remain the same.  For Bax’s plan to work, however, he will need to enlist the help of their rodeo friends and convince Jason that his life is not over.

Blind Ride – Season One is a good read that will pull at your heart-strings while it turns you on! BA Tortuga does a wonderful job of creating in Jason and Bax characters that will catch your attention and keep you turning the pages.  It was very entertaining, as well as emotional, to see Jason and Bax circle each other and eventually find their way to loving each other in the midst of the turmoil caused by Jason’s injury.  The passionate moments between the men are lava-hot, while the emotional roller-coaster of Jason living blind and moving on will leave you wishing you could fix things for him.  Be warned that Blind Ride – Season One ends on a cliff hanger that will leave you eagerly awaiting the sequel to this book!  Get yourself Blind Ride – Season One when you are looking for a steamy cowboy romance that will heat you up while snagging your heart!
