Must Love Cowboys (Once Upon a Time in Texas #3) by Carly Bloom

In this charming, sexy romance, a bookish beauty needs a fake boyfriend and finds a handsome cowboy who is just the man for the job.

Return to Big Verde, where "Bloom has invented a place we want to hang up our hat and kick up our spurs any time she's got a story to tell" (Entertainment Weekly). Beau Montgomery is living his best life . . . until he's left in charge of Rancho CaƱada Verde. With his dyslexia, he'd choose a saddle over spreadsheets any day. His best hope is to ask the town librarian for tutoring. Only he's had a crush on the book-loving beauty since his junior high days—and despite being a smooth talker, he can't help getting tongue-tied every time they meet.

Alice Martin doesn't regret putting her career above personal relationships—but when Beau comes to her for help, Alice decides to see what she's been missing. She'll improve Beau's reading skills if the handsome cowboy teaches her how to flirt and agrees to be her date to an upcoming wedding. But when the town's gossip mill gets going, they're forced into a fake romance to keep their deal a secret. Soon Alice is seeing Beau in a whole new way . . . can she turn their imaginary story into a real-life happy-ever-after?

Includes the bonus novel Big Bad Cowboy!

4 out of 5 stars

I am loving this series from Carly Bloom and Must Love Cowboys was a wonderful addition. It was so fun and sweet and made for an incredibly entertaining read. I enjoyed the playful dialogue and witty banter and couldn’t wait for Beau and Alice to get their HEA.

I really liked Beau and Alice and learning their long history. She was endearingly quirky and caring, very literal, and at times a bit shy. I loved watching her try new things and come out of her shell. Beau was one heck of a sexy cowboy, he was flirty and sweet. I loved him working to better himself and overcoming his reading issues. I love the challenges they were facing and how they helped one another. I liked their chemistry and the growing heat between them and how they pushed each other out of their comfort zones. There were a lot of really great scenes with awesome dialogue between these two that had me smiling.

I love all the characters in the series and was thrilled to see them in this story as well. I loved those different personalities and friendships. I loved the bond that Beau has with his brother Bryce and their twin connection, I almost wished it would have been a bigger part of the story. I really liked Carmen and the hints about her and Bryce, I would love for them to get their own book. I also loved the small-town vibe and all the gossip, that's a charming element.

This was a really great story and I enjoyed it immensely. It was light and fast-paced and I loved the conflict and growing attraction. There were good details but it wasn’t overly in-depth. It was light and fun and moved along at a good pace. I liked the dual POVs and all the engaging interactions. This was super entertaining and sweet with a bit of heat that made for an awesome read.
