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?
Smoking hot, charming, and laugh-out-loud funny!
Big Bad Cowboy is an amusing, heartwarming tale that takes us to Big Verde, Texas and into the life of the hardworking, fiery Maggie as she juggles a demanding career, the loss of her beloved grandmother, texting with a mysterious, yet handsome stranger, and sparring with her infuriatingly sexy neighbour, Travis Blake.
The writing is witty and crisp. The characterization is spot on with a cast of characters that are fun-loving, supportive, and endearing. And the plot is an enchanting blend of heart, humour, tender moments, family, friendship, tension, attraction, chemistry, snappy dialogue, shameless flirting, community spirit, and sizzling romance.
Overall, Big Bad Cowboy is a humorous, spicy, highly addictive novel by Bloom that’s a wonderful addition to the Once Upon a Time in Texas series and a true guilty pleasure.
