Publisher's Summary

Bull riding is all Gavin’s known for years, but when it’s time to retire, he can’t let go of the reckless lifestyle. He finds a job that brings him to a small-town Texas ranch and face-to-face with the woman who snuck out after their one-night stand.

She can pretend she’s over him, but he’s not letting her go that easily.

Maize Bishop spends her days cooking and baking for her family’s bed and breakfast. The last thing she has time for is a relationship, especially when there are no single men within a hundred-mile radius. When a mysterious newcomer flirts with her over drinks, she gives in to his mesmerizing green eyes and goes home with him.

Now that he works for her family’s ranch, she’ll avoid him at all costs.

There are only so many places to hide, and keeping her distance is easier said than done. After months of giving her space, Gavin’s tired of waiting for Maize to admit what he knows they both want - a second round between the sheets. It may only take eight seconds to win a championship, but he’ll prove to her that he can go all night long.

She’s too young, he’s too arrogant, and together, they’re electric - the perfect recipe for disaster.

Wrangling the Cowboy is a complete stand-alone and can be listened to without listening any of the other audiobooks or series, but if you prefer to listen in order, start with Hitching the Cowboy as the characters and families do interconnect.

Wrangling The Cowboy!

Wrangling the Cowboy is a fun age-gap cowboy romance. Gavin a retired bull rider takes a job at Circle B Ranch training horses not knowing his one night stand Maize is a cook at the local B&B. Maize is shocked to see Gavin again, she avoids him wherever possible and pretends that they never hooked up.

I wasn’t a fan of Maize’s character she seemed quite snippy and immature. I loved it when the tables were turned and she had to chase Gavin but then she was only good to him for four days before having a tantrum that he hadn’t given her what she wanted. I loved Gavin’s character he definitely deserved a medal for hanging in there with maize for so long.

Stephen Dexter’s narration was amazing, he really makes this series.

Outstanding Story & Narration🎧 Loved->Maize💘Gavin❣

I am loving this series and its characters. I’ve been looking forward to Maize and Gavin’s story since meeting them in “Catching the Cowboy”, Adam and Rowan’s story. After their encounter I had a felling their story was going to be an awesome one and Kennedy Fox did not disappoint one bit. Their story drew me in right from the start and captivated my attention the entire time. Maize Bishop, 25 years old and single, she runs the kitchen in the family’s bed and breakfast, feeding guests and the ranch hands. She works hard and her goes is to have her own catering company. She has not had time to date and after a relationship gone bad with one of the ranch hands she refuses to get involved with anyone who works at the family ranch. One night while out partying she meets a gorgeous guy who is passing thru town, she does something out of the ordinary for her, she has an extremely hot one night stand. Having to go to work she leaves before he gets up, no numbers exchanged no expectations. So when it turns out he is the new worker on the ranch she thinks it is best to ignore him and act like they never met. OMG, swoon worthy Gavin, I loved his patience and how he never gave up on Maize. Well for the record, he is a champion bull rider and trains horses, training even the most stubborn fo them so he figured he’d break thru Maize’s walls eventually and have some fun while doing so. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted with plenty of drama, a touch of angst, some great light-hearted humor and family shenanigans, lots of heartfelt and emotional moments and some hot romance. Kennedy Fox, thank you for another fabulous story and emotional rollercoaster ride, I loved every minute of it!

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Lia Langola and Stephen Dexter are talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They are awesome at portraying these characters, humanizing them as they bring them and their story to life. I love how natural they sound as they perform the characters voices, they take each of the roles and make it their own. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen🎧

I’m Not Maize’s Biggest Fan

The first two books in this series were great and I was excited to dive into Gavin and Maize’s story. I’m surprised the ratings aren’t a little lower, to be honest. Gavin is a dream...but Maize...she’s annoying and highly immature. It’s funny because more than once Gavin mentions that even though Maize is so much younger than him, she seems older because of her maturity level...what a joke!! She’s perpetually rude to Gavin. They literally have a one night stand and then she pretends for months on end that she never met him that night. She’s hot and cold and a terrible communicator...completely exacerbating! As you might expect, she finally gets her act together when it’s almost too late. Narration was well-done but the storyline was not as enjoyable as most Kennedy Fox books. It was a lot better toward the end at least! The heroine simply was not worthy of the hero imo! 3 star story. 5 star narration.

The Horse Trainer and The Boss’ Niece

Kennedy Fox knows how to write cowboys and their love interest. Outstanding story with lots of steamy heat. I loved this 2 Nd generation story. You can’t go wrong with a Kennedy Fox book. Her books are the one click buy just on her reputation of previous books written.

Loved this one!

I absolutely loved this story. There was just something about Gavin and how he wasn’t willing to give up on Mazie that kept me hoping for a happy ending. But Mazie has been hurt before and it is going to take a lot for her to trust again and fall in love, but Gavin just might be the man that she’s willing to take a chance on.

Great read!

I really enjoyed this story! It was great getting to know Maize and Gavin better. This is the third book in the series and can be read as a standalone but you get to see some of Gavin and Maize in the previous book in the series so extra enjoyment if you have as you always get to see characters from the previous books as well. I liked that this story went back and we get to see more of Gavin and Maize from their first meeting and all the way up to the little teases we got in the last book. I loved how Gavin refused to give up on Maize and kept pursuing her and looking beyond the surface. He trusted his instincts and what he saw beyond her words. He knew that she was running scared he just couldn't figure out why. I loved their banter back and forth as well. This story moved along at a good pace and I loved getting to see things progress. It covers quite a bit of time and I thought it was done really well as I didn't really feel like I was missing anything from those jumps in time. We got plenty of details with what was important and happening so never felt lost or like information was late to the party lol. Maize and Gavin definitely have to work for their happy ending and I enjoyed seeing them find it. I was pulled in from beginning to end because of the characters and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I am super excited for the next book as well with Elle and Connor.
I listened to the audio book and really enjoyed the narrators. They did a great job with the different voices and personalities and really brought them to life.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Gavin and Maize’s memorable love story!

Wrangling the Cowboy is the 3rd book in the Bishop Circle B ranch series and focuses on Maize and Gavin. There is an age gap between the two, although they are both at the point in their lives where they want to settle down and start a family. After a successful career riding bulls, Gavin wants to slow down and find someone to settle down with. After a hot night with Maize, Gavin is enamored and is only even more excited to see her at the Bishop ranch, where he's now employed. But Maize pretends not to know him because of her own negative past experiences with a cowboy, and the push and pull between the two builds a lot of sexual tension throughout the book.

I love how persistent Gavin is and how he reassures Maize of their relationship. Maybe it's because he's 10 years older, but his patience, and his care and tenacity at pursuing Maize speaks to his confidence at knowing who he wants and his true feelings for Maize. Maize tries to avoid Gavin at the ranch, but in the end, she can't resist him!

I listened to the audio of this with Stephen Dexter and Lia Langola, and they did a great job as always. Stephen Dexter's accent, his confidence in portraying Gavin totally made this a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Small-town romance

3.5 Stars

Gavin and Maize’s small-town romance was frustrating. Maize’s childish games in pushing Gavin way was getting annoying and tiresome. If I were Gavin, I would have moved on a long time ago with all the wishy-washy treatments. However, their sexy time together were definitely passionate and scorching hot. I just want to hit Maize on her head and shout at her to grow up and communicate like adults.

Stephen Dexter did a superb job especially the dirty talks. Lia Langola's Texas drawl was great. The two of them together brought so much entertainment.

The One-Night-Stand Returns

Maize Bishop is having a quarter life crisis when she meets former bull rider Gavin one night at the bar. After a great night drinking and talking she goes home with him thinking he was just passing through town. She never expected to see him again. A few weeks later she's put on the spot when the new horse trainer working with her uncle turns out to be none other than the man who gave her the best sex of her life... before she left him to wake up alone the next morning.

Gavin is really happy to cross paths with Maize again. She left an impression and he totally wants more. But she refuses to acknowledge that they had spent the night together, that they had ever met before at all. He likes a challenge, but will Maize's inconsistent nature and fear of relationships be too much for him to handle?

I love how this story happens over a longer time period. The portions of the evolution of Gavin and Maize's interactions happen with weeks or months in between them. You really root for them as a couple and sometimes want to slap Maize upside the head for resisting sexy as hell Gavin for so long. The heat level practically boils when they get together, but because of the cat and mouse nature of their situation, they don't come together as often as some other books. The tension when these characters are in the same room is a constant simmer.

Narrator Stephen Dexter does an amazing job bringing Gavin's dirty talking growly alpha to life. Lia Langola's Texas drawl for Maize is smooth as butter and the emotions when she has her freak outs and emotional revelations is perfect. The two of them together is a perfect blend for these characters. I will definitely listen to this one again.

Fantastic

I'm rarely if ever disappointed with a Kennedy Fox book. I've now read every book in this Circle B Ranch series and each one has left me with the happiest of happy feelings. I don't know if it's the cowboys, the family setting or the glorious writing but every time a KF book from the Bishop's arrives in my kindle I smile from page 1 'till the epilogue and this is no different. I remember Maize's beginning in her parents story (Chasing Him Bishop Brothers #3) so to see her grown up is a treat. She's stubborn as heck and the push and pull between her and Gavin was everything. I cannot wait to see what happens next in this series and honestly hope I never come to the day I wont visit the Bishops. Add to this the stunning narration from the Queen of KF, Lia Langola and a personal favourite Stephen Dexter and I couldn't possibly rate this less than 5 stars. I volunteered to leave an unbiased review. All opinions herein are my own.

My Thoughts on Wrangling the Cowboy

Gavin oh Gavin oh Gavin. I was a big fan of his in this story. I have definitely come to realize that Kennedy Fox sure knows how to write an amazing leading man. He was almost impossible to not love. Maize on the other hand took a little time for me to warm up to her. Despite knowing that she had her reasons for wanting to keep Gavin at arm’s length, I felt she was a bit too mean at times. I didn’t think he deserved her anger but she kept dishing it out. By the end though she had grown on me a bit and redeemed herself of course and I was happy for them both to get the ending they did. And even with all that being said I really enjoyed this book overall. It was well written and got me invested in the characters both the ones currently holding the main character role and those who I loved in previous books of the series. I’m looking forward to what’s to come in this series and from this author duo.

Both narrators were fantastic. I loved the accents. The emotions, Just all of it. They really enhanced the story for me with their performances.

🔥🔥🔥🔥

Just spent the last few days in my fave place and another epic love story has come from the Bishop tribe, this time between career driven Maize and retired bull ride Gavin. Wrangling the Cowboy is an age gap, small town romance read with all the magic Bishop Ranch feels. I don’t normally do age gap but I gave this one an exception and I really enjoyed it. All the Bishop girls are strong minded and Maize is no exception! Gavin and Maize’s witty banter is entertaining and chemistry is on fire 🔥 do yourself a favour and get a bit of Maize and Gavin in your life! To really add fuel to the Maize and Gavin fire, get them on audiobook 😜 thank me later…

What's not to love about Circle B!

I adore the Circle B Ranch books and Wrangling the Cowboy is no different. Gavin and Maize were a great couple. Gavin an ex pro bull riding champ, at 35 wants to settle down and do what he loves training horses and Maize a chef on her family's ranch seeing all her cousins falling in love at 25 is wondering if it will ever happen for her. I found this book lighter on the angst for Kennedy Fox but it was full of heart and I adore the small town feels to the ranch setting. Stephen Dexter is fast becoming a favourite narrator after listening to this series, he does such a good job of capturing that southern gentleman vibe and that's exactly what Gavin is.

After one heck of a night together months go by before they meet again when Gavin accepts a job at Circle B Ranch but what I didn't expect was for Maize to act as if she doesn't remember him at all. Gavin clicks onto her games and keeps pushing and chasing her until she finally admits she really does remember the night they shared. The chemistry is great and the back and forth was entertaining. I loved that Gavin made her work for it once she finally began to open up to the idea they just might work. Another great addition to the series, add in the extra little interwoven storylines for potential couples to come and I can't wait for more.

cowboys are my weakness

Loved this. Maize and Gavin were great together- loved their chemistry. I'm not a fan of age-gap romances but this one didn't seem to bother me. The story was low angst and filled with laughs. Listened to it in one sitting.

Narration was fabulous - Stephen Dexter as an ex-bull riding cowboy, yes, please. Lia Langola - an amazing narrator - they make a great pair.

Maize and Gavin!

The time has come for Gavin to leave his rodeo career and the lifestyle that goes along with it in the past. He has come to town to pursue an opportunity at the Bishop ranch, but Maize was a surprise he wasn’t expecting.

Maize isn’t looking for love or a relationship especially with a cowboy. When she meets Gavin the sparks fly into a night neither of them will ever forget however she had no intention of ever seeing him again so finding out he is now working on the family ranch was a revelation she could have done without.

Maize was determined that one night was all they had but Gavin was just as determined that one night was not enough. Let the battle begin!

The perseverance that Gavin showed as he tried to prove to Maize that he wasn’t only there for a good time but a long time was inspiring to watch and although she was reluctant fighting the chemistry and feelings between them was a fight she wasn’t going to win. The narrators were a perfect choice for the characters as they brought out the heat and humor of the story.

Gavin and Maize are all kinds of amazing

Lia and Stephen have done it again!
The way they narrate these books is just magical, they manage to transport me to Texas EVERY TIME.
Gavin and Maize's story is one of sweetness, stubbornness and steam.
I absolutely adore this series and am looking forward to the next book.
