ARC REVIEW Big Bad Cowboy by Carly Bloom

 

Big Bad Cowboy (Once Upon a Time in Texas, #1)

 

Once Upon a Time in Texas #1, A good Autumn read that takes place just before Halloween and ends with a Christmas epilogue. I adored this book! Maggie and Travis meet at a Halloween costume party, Maggie dressed as slutty Red Riding Hood and Travis as a Wolf. Instant sexual chemistry sparked between them they snuck off together not knowing each others real names and for Maggie not knowing what her Big Bad Wolf actually looked like only to part quickly after but not before Maggie's best friend slipped Maggies's number on to his phone. Travis is fresh out of the military and stuck in his hometown taking care of his nephew, Henry, whose mother just died of cancer and Travis' worthless brother is in jail, again. He's trying to earn money the best way he knows how, especially since the property taxes on his Dad's, now his, ranch are overdue. Maggie is the owner and operator of her own business, Petal Pushers, with her landscaping degree she made a name for herself, now she views Travis as competition, and really annoying, and too sexy for his own good. They wind up getting hired for the same job but for different reasons and the more time Maggie spends with Travis she realises how wrong she was about him. 

Travis recognizes Maggie as Red Riding Hood right away but because he was the one wearing the mask Maggie doesn't recognize him. With her number in his phone he makes contact. Through text messages they flirt and sext and Travis falls in love. Maggie is torn between the her Big Bad Wolf and Travis, and what will she do when she realizes they are one in the same. Between the adorable Henry, the loveable Mrs. Garza (I want one of her) and Maggie's two best friends Claire and JD the secondary cast of characters is just as entertaining as Maggie and Travis. I really did like everything about his book. Overall, it ends up being such a heartwarming story with an endearing cast of characters.

Entertaining Contemporary Romance
Fearless - Carly Phillips

Fearless is a great contemporary romance by Carly Phillips.  This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Ms. Phillips has delivered a well-written book and furnished it with great characters.  Kane is a mechanic with his own garage in Rosewood Bay.  Halley is an almost recluse artist.  Kane and Halley's story is loaded with drama, bits of humor and sizzle.  Halley is a bit angsty, but not so much to ruin the story.  I enjoyed reading Fearless and look forward to reading more from Carly Phillips in the future.  Fearless is book 1 of the Rosewood Bay Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Dream - Carly Phillips

Andrea "Andi" Harmon is Kane's little sister and we finally get to read her story. Now divorced, Andi has been trying to provide a good life for her 8 year old son, Nicky and all she cared about was keeping him away from his abusive father. Why Andi had to fall for the bad boy quarterback in high school, she'll never know. Too bad she didn't realize just how bad he was until it was too late. Because of her ex, Andi lost her best friend, Kyle Davenport....something that she regrets everyday.

Guess who just moved back to Rosewood Bay? Yep, Kyle. He is now Nicky's teacher. When Kyle realizes that Nicky is behind in his reading level, he asks Andi to come up to the school to discuss it. Yep, the old chemistry is still there....too bad Kyle never told Andi how he really felt about her all those years ago....things may have turned out differently.

As Kyle and Andi start to spend more time together, Kyle decides this time he isn't giving up. He will give 100% to get Andi to see him as something more than her old best friend. And boy does he! Andi really had no chance! Of course just when these two have broken down all of their walls from the past, the past comes roaring back in the form of Andi's ex, Billy. This time it will take both Andi and Kyle standing up for themselves so they can finally get their happy ending.

I just loved Andi and Kyle. You can't help but root for two people who are so genuinely nice and good. I also adored their happy ending. It was just perfect!

Dream (Rosewood Bay #4) by Carly Phillips
Dream - Carly Phillips

 

Carly Phillips inspires women with empowering tales, courageous, characters and heart-aching romance. Get ready to begin again with Kyle and Andrea. They were meant to be, but failed to see their chance the first time around. Can years of longing, hard living and an abundance of heartbreak finally point these lonely hearts in the right direction? Dream encourages us to move forward when the past seeks to hold us back. Andrea found strength in fighting a losing battle with her heart, her ex and the mistakes she made along the way. Pride left her with regret, but forgiveness brought her more happiness than she ever dreamed of.

Surprise
Freed - Carly Phillips

This is the 3rd book in the Rosewood Bay series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment & understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Juliette comes to Rosewood Bay to meet the sisters she never knew she had.  She meets Braden right away and they click immediately.  The attraction burns bright on both sides.

 

Braden is tasked to keep tabs on Juliette, and he has no idea how to tell her.  Her father and her past is quickly going to ruin the great start they have.  Braden must convince Juliette that they have a future and its worth it.

 

This was a sexy sweet combo in one book.  A great addition to this series, the story starts with serious heat that just burns all throughout the book.  I loved the banter and the very real subject matters.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
