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 is the first in the Once Upon A Time Series by Carly Bloom and my first read by this author and she wow’d me. How did I not know if her before. Hot cowboys and fairy tell retellings, sign me up asap! I jumped in blind to this story but was quickly enticed by Travis and Maggie. She was full of sass and I love that in my heroines. He was all sorts of intriguing. I will definitely be reading more of this author in the future.
