Editorial Reviews


"...Bad Boy, Big Heart by Andrea Downing is a fun and very entertaining story. I enjoyed Chay and KC's characters; they are incredibly detailed and very well-developed. I enjoyed how the two of them were polar opposites yet they complemented each other really well. ... The pace is perfect for the story, the dialogues are exceptionally well-written and the overall flow of the story is incredible. I was cheering for Chay, I wanted him to woo KC and show her the world. This is a great story, especially for readers who enjoy spunky characters with quirks!" --Readers'; choice Review, 5*
From InD'Tale Magazine:
"Bad Boy, Big Heart" is a fast paced short story with such beautiful descriptions of the Wyoming countryside, readers will feel as if they have been swept into the very pages of the book. One cannot help but instantly fall in love with the characters, feel their connection and share the struggle they face. . . the writing is beautifully vivid and the characters likable, with a plot that any romance lover could easily sink their teeth into, especially if one enjoys a quick, enjoyable read."
Dahlia Gosney
Bad Boy, Big Heart was previously part of Come Love a Cowboy.  Here are a couple of the reviews the book received at that time:
I've read several of Andrea's books in the past and I've never been disappointed. She writes from the heart, not just her own, but straight from the hearts of her characters. I never feel as though she rushes her story or short-changes her readers with cookie-cutter heroes, heroines, and plots.
KC and Chay's story, as it unfolds in Bad Boy, Big Heart, makes me catch my breath on the very first page, as the author introduces me to KC and Chay and to the world where I'll watch them fumble through the complexities of life and love, Wyoming! ....
I never summarize the story in my reviews, but I do like to tell you what I like and I liked a lot. I liked the push and pull between KC and Chay, their diverse backgrounds being a natural catalyst to igniting a spark. I liked the secondary characters that fill the big Wyoming background with color, humor, and authenticity. I love the rich dialog that kept me smack in the middle of every scene. I loved the a sunset ablaze with color that warms the heart as it sinks into tomorrow.
--Lynda Coker, Between the Lines and More, 5*

" exciting, suspenseful, fun, and romantic read that is just pure enjoyment. I loved the interactions between the two characters and how author Andrea Downing so skillfully takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride right along with the characters. The result is a fun, romantic, suspenseful story that you're sure to enjoy."

From the Author

I hope readers will enjoy this first episode about Bad Boy Chay Ridgway and his love for K.C. Daniels.  The story continues in City Boy, Country Heart, part of the A Cowboy to Keep anthology.
