Big Bad Cowboy: Once Upon a Time in Texas #1 by Carly Bloom – publication date of October 30th, 2018 by Forever Romance – Contemporary Romance
In the New York Times tradition of Lori Wilde and Carolyn Brown comes the first book in a new western romance series from Forever debut author Carly Bloom about a no-strings cowboy fling with a fairy tale twist.
Who’s afraid of the big, bad cowboy?
After one too many heartbreaks, Travis Blake hung up his cowboy hat and put Big Verde, Texas, behind him. But when he gets the call that his young nephew needs him, he knows he has to return home. His plan is to sell the family ranch and hightail it back to Austin, but there’s a small problem: the one person who stands in his way is the one person he can’t resist.
Maggie is pretty sure she hates Travis Blake. He’s irritating, he’s destroying her business, and . . . and he’s just so frickin’ attractive. But when they’re forced to work together, Maggie discovers that the Most Annoying Man in the World is more than he seems. He’s sweet with his nephew, he helps out in the community, and he makes her heart flutter. Maggie doesn’t want to risk everything on a man who wants to leave, but what if she can convince this wayward cowboy to stay?
About the author: Carly Bloom began her writing career as a family humor columnist and blogger, a pursuit she abandoned when her children grew old enough to literally die from embarrassment. To save their delicate lives, Carly turned to pen steamy, contemporary romance. The kind with bare chests on the covers.
Carly and her husband raise their mortified brood of offspring on a cattle ranch in South Texas. Also? Carly is vegan. The cows love her.
My Review: Big Bad Cowboy is the first book in the Once Upon a Time in Texas series written by Carly Bloom. An intriguing steamy romance with a sexy cowboy makes this a pageturner that you will not want to put down. Bloom has created a group of characters that are well-developed, realistic and relatable. Big Bad Cowboy is not your typical cowboy romance because Bloom gives you an inside look at the true workings of a ranch but with a modern day twist. I read Big Bad Cowboy in one setting. A true all-nighter with a book hangover the next day! I laughed, cried, and devoured the steamy romantic scenes. I highly recommend Big Bad Cowboy to anyone who loves a steamy romantic read with a sexy cowboy that is sure to sweep you off your feet. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
