Blurb: After a bar fight gone horribly wrong, Clint is on the run, tired, hungry, and desperate to get out of Texas and across the border as fast as he can. But more than anything, he needs a place to relax and feel safe—at least for a little while. Searching for work, he stumbles into a cantina on the beach and runs into its owner. Jack might be a little older and a little worldlier, but the two men have enough in common to form a fast friendship that soon spills over into the bedroom.
But Clint isn’t the only who’s done things he isn’t proud of, things he’d rather keep hidden. Both of them have to be ready to drop everything and run if the past gets too close, and that’s no foundation for a relationship—especially since the truth always comes out eventually.

Review: Clint has finally found shelter, a place to feel safe after being on the run. He finds himself at a bar in Old Mexico, and it’s here that the bar owner, Jack, is willing to help Clint out. Jack can see that Clint has something haunting him, so he helps the young man out. He offers Clint a job and a place to stay, and they find a much needed companionship.
Jack also finds himself protecting Clint from his nightmares. He understands Clint’s plight because he has his own secret. When the law comes sniffing around, Clint goes on the run again, but Jack’s got only one thing on his mind—find Clint and bring him home.
In her own unique style of writing and storytelling, BA Tortuga gives readers a sweet short story about two men who are just finding each other. I really like the stories this author tells; they may not always have a deeper insight into each character, but there always seems to be a steamy chemistry between them, and a special connection between a younger and older man. The stories may be a little quirky, but there’s always an HEA. Seashores of Old Mexico will take you to the sun and surf, and will leave you with a heartfelt warmth.
