Bad Boy, Big Heart is the first book in the Heart of the Boy series by Andrea Downing. Chay Ridgway is the man most women would be glad to spend their summers with. Chay has his responsibilities, but he also wants to have fun this summer. That includes becoming a rodeo star and finding a hot girl to spend time with. His eyes are set on beautiful KC Daniels. She is everything he wants, but he is not what she is looking for. KC is here for lighthearted fun before she embarks on the next step in her educational career. She is looking for some fun in the sun and Chay is not that. But Chay is very tempting and he might be just what she needs to let loose. They are both from two very different places yet when fate brings them together, they realize that they might be perfect for each other.
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. I loved how sassy KC was yet how sweet she became as she got to know Chay. The change in Chay is much more noticeable and I enjoyed every second of it. 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!
