ARC Review: Cowboy Come Home – Carly Bloom (Once Upon a Time in Texas #2)

Rating: 4 out of 5.


Some cowboys aren’t cut out to be Prince Charming—and Claire Kowalski knows that better than anyone. She gave her heart to Ford Jarvis two years ago, yet that didn’t keep him from disappearing into the sunset. Now that he’s back in Big Verde, Texas, she’s determined not to make the same mistake twice. But the ruggedly sexy cowboy still knows how to push all her buttons, and avoiding him is nearly impossible when she needs his help.

Ford didn’t plan on returning home—ever—but when he hears that the Kowalski ranch is in trouble, he hightails it back to town. He’s not eager to be reminded of the life he can never have, but his time in Big Verde is only temporary. He’ll stay long enough to get the ranch up and running, then hit the road again. But when Ford finds out the new foreman he’s training is Claire, still as stubborn and beautiful as ever, this cowboy is going to have to decide what matters most—repeating the mistakes of the past or fighting for a future with the only woman he’s ever loved..


Cowboy Come Home is my first Carly Bloom book but certainly not my last!

I don’t often read cowboy romances (definitely going to change that!) but I’ve seen Bloom’s name around romancelandia for a while now so when I had the opportunity to request one of her books, I jumped on it. And thank goodness I did because this book was excellent. I really enjoyed dipping my toes into the cowboy romance genre with this one.

Bloom is a fantastic writer and I was immediately drawn into the story and second chance romance between Ford and Claire. Cowboy Come Home was a fun, sweet, and easy-going read; and even though this was the first book of Bloom’s I’d read, it felt like ‘coming home’ with the way readers were immersed in each of the characters’ lives (including the many side characters). There are several characters who I look forward to revisiting in Bloom’s other books and hope to keep an eye on in Bloom’s future books.

I can’t wait to read more from Bloom in the future and would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys cowboy romances, and/or fun, second chance contemporary romances!
