Big Bad Cowboy by Carly Bloom

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?

Travis is just getting back from being in the Army when he's hit with a double whammy. His family estate is in disrepair and his sister-in-law just passed away and now he has to care for his nephew. Travis doesn't really know anything about raising kids. His experience with family is a less than stellar example. Also, his nephew's dad is in prison and to make matters even worse, he needs his incarcerated brother's signature to even think about selling the family farm.

When he starts doing odd jobs around town, he has no idea that he's stepping on toes. But oh, what pretty toes he's stepping on. Maggie is the local landscape architect and when she sees Travis again, she can't help but be attracted to him.

With some miscommunication, some crazy cows, and a community that can't help but interfere, these two will have a crazy ride. While the story was well developed, it was long winded at times. There were a few back stories inside, but there were parts where I just wanted the story to move forward. Overall, this is a sweet story and the characters do figure themselves out. I really do hope that some of the other characters get their own stories, as they were hilarious and a huge part of Travis and Maggie's success.

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 penning 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.
