Beau is a two-time champion bullrider who is working on his third title. Sam is his long time lover and traveling partner, who is feeling the sting of having just about the worst season he can remember. The two of them are on the road together twenty-four seven, and it's starting to get to them a little, between the constant injuries Sam faces, and the relentless press that Beau has to put up with. Add in friends on the circuit who need their help and the fact that they have to hide what they mean to each other, and it's no wonder that Sam and Beau's relationship starts to wear a little from the friction. When things blow up in their faces, Sam leaves the bullriding tour for awhile, but the boys find out they're far more miserable apart than they are together. Beau and Sam may agree to disagree in order to make peace and help out their friends Jason and Coke, but in the unpredictable world of extreme sports, nothing goes as it's planned. Can Beau and Sam recover from what just might the last ride of Sam's life?

Wow! Sam and Beau were electric in File Gumbo by B.A. Tortuga. The ease in which the two men wore their skin and interacted was nothing short of a sensual escapade.
Working the rodeo circuit was back-breaking work for the cowboys, riders and clowns. And it’s no different for the long-time partners, Sam and Beau. Hard ache and tragedy befell the men and patience and love from each other and their friends uplifted them~ turning misfortune into riches.
Ms. Tortuga delivered a beautifully written story of love and friendship and the sacrifices made for those that are most important in your life. I loved the down home feeling which radiated through the author’s writing as she transported this reader to the hardships of rodeo life and the agony the men endured.
The cowboy speak at times confused this city girl, but I got the hang of it and fell into the characterization and dialogue.
Tickled that Sam and Beau got their story, File Gumbo was a sure-fire winner.
