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?

Big Bad Cowboy by Carly Bloom is a cute love story and after a long day at work, it was everything I needed to unwind! The story is about Travis Blake, who leaves the Army and then suddenly has to take care of his nephew Henry, after Henry's mother had died, his father (Travis brother) had done a bunk! so all that leaves is Travis, who has zero ideas on how to take care of a child! let alone a little boy who has lost most of the people in his life.
But Travis is determined to take care of his nephew, and though he had planned to sell the family ranch and head back to Austin, in the end, that's not what he does! but of course, nothing runs smoothly, especially when it comes to love! but that comes in the firey form of the lovely Maggie! who definitely keeps Travis on his toes, and showers Henry with the love that he surely deserves!
Overall I found the book sweet, but at times there was just a little too much going on! but the ending was perfect! Which is why I give Big Bad Cowboy 4 stars!
