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?
This book is how you start off a series. I enjoyed all of the characters as well as the storyline. Although, I must admit that the lines that Travis and Maggie used at times were a bit cheesy. Yet, there was humor in the lines but more than anything, it made the temperature rise rapidly. Which, their first sexual encounter was scorching hot.
However, this book is not just about sex. Ok, so about half, if not a little more is about sex or at least talking about sex. The other half of the story is about the characters. They were fun to get to know; especially Travis's nephew. You can't go wrong with cute children in stories. I look forward to checking out the next book in this series. There is a country song that best describes this book "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" by Big and Rich!
