A Joyfully Jay review.

4.25 stars


Ammo and Enchiladas is the follow up to another great book in the Border Crossing series, Bombs and Guacamole. When I got the opportunity to review this one, there was no doubt I wanted to read it and B.A. Tortuga has written an awesome second installment. I love the way she breathed life into Brant and Lex. These guys were real. Their grief, their exhaustion, their need to be there for Travis…it’s all so well written. The dialogue is natural and smooth. I’m not

Wow. This one wasn't the easiest to read. Angstier than usual from BA Tortuga, but what a story....I was pulled in right away, feeling the pain and loss, full of empathy and sympathy as I got to know the characters, both main and secondary. This is truly a story of loss and love found through loss, and I loved the slow, smooth pacing, loved Lex and Brant getting to know each other and still dealing with all that transpired. I do like some good old-fashioned insta-love when done right,

I asked for an advanced copy of this book to read and review.


Ammo and Enchiladas is the second in the Border Crossing Series by BA Tortuga. It can be read as a standalone without the benefit of reading the prior books in the series.

The loss of a spouse is bad, but the loss of a life-long friend is a harder loss. Brant and his best friend, Matt did everything together since kindergarten. Matt moved from Texas to New Mexico, and convinced Brant it was the best place to be. When Matt got married, B

After reading the previous one in the series and this one, I've been looking at Mexican restaurants because I really want to try out some of the food that's mentioned. These characters sure do love their food. That's the food out of the way. I loved the love story between these two characters and I love that it's a slightly unusual love story. There's the way they meet, which wasn't in the best circumstances to begin with and then there's the fact that they move in together about half way of the ...more

Ammo and Enchiladas Is book two in the series but it did read ok alone. You may want to read Bombs and guacamole to meet Nate and Dusty and Lex as well.
Lex is a cop and receives a call from his best friend in Albuquerque that his husband has been killed. Travis goes to see how he can help.
Brant was with Matt when he was killed and there was nothing he could do to help. He is taking his friend's death hard. Lex and Brant are immediately attracted and become friends while trying to console Travis

I have previously read the other book in the series, Bombs and Guacamole and I loved it so much.
So when B.A. Tortuga wrote Lex’s story, I was totally on board with it. I waited anxiously and eagerly.
It was a good story, but it lacked something. I haven’t quite figured it out. Dusty and Nate were a solid fun ride with lots of action and humour.

Lex and Brant were a good match. The beginning was so emotional and heartbreaking. I felt for both Brant and Travis. I had tears.
But the story kinda w

Not enough ammo, too many enchiladas...

I think the title of my review sums it up, so I'll keep this short. I was drawn in by the blurb. It was promising but I didn't get what I was hoping for. The writing is good and characters well fleshed out but the author started loosing my interest at 30% of the book. The drawn out meaningless chater about food etc. was boring and unnecessary. I get that MC's were starting to know each other but you don't need to write it down word by word. Shorter version

I knew that I was going to love Lex’s story and I totally did. The food got better in this book after all the tempting in Bombs and Guacamole. I am going to Albuquerque this year and I can’t wait to find some of this yummy food. The food is most definitely a secondary character in this book. I love stories that deal with tragedy and watching the men find a way out to the other side. I also love instant-like/love stories and this one hit that so well. I hope there’ll be another story for Travis a ...more

Sad beginning you hurt for Travis and Brant. Travis was kind of a prick but you have to cut him some slack he did just lose his husband. Lex man I love his easy going way to handle both of them.
Honestly I wish I had that type of connection with someone, that more then a friend, more than a lover, almost a soul mate connection. And the food need to learn to make some of them dishes.

I hate putting this book down at the end of my breaks. Well write and lovable characters.

The beginning of this story broke my heart. I just was feel so emotional for Lex and Brant. These two might be having a tragedy but I love see how they grow from it and together. This is a great insta lust/love and angst story.
