In the Heart of Texas, a heartthrob cowboy may get his second chance at love…
Danny Oldman, the handsome Lone Star sheriff, is still single. He tells himself, and anyone who asks, that he is married to his job―and what matters most is keeping the people of his beloved Texas hometown safe. The truth? Danny still hasn’t gotten over his high school crush. She moved away after graduation and took Danny’s heart with her.
Skylar Long never thought she would have to flee Houston and return home―where it all began for her. But that’s what happened after the man of her dreams turned out to be an actual nightmare. Now, Skylar is desperate to escape her obsessive boyfriend. Nothing shocks her more than seeing Danny again and realizing that their long-ago attraction is more powerful than ever. But can she and Danny find a way to fight against Skylar’s wealthy, powerful ex who is dead set on tearing them apart?

A Cowboy Like You by Donna grant is the 4 the book in her Heart of Texas series but can be thoroughly enjoyed as a stand alone. I completely devoured this wonderful cowboy romance !
“Having you back makes me crave you with a ferocity that should frighten you.“
Sheriff Danny Oldman lives a lonely life even though he’s surrounded by friends who care . Fate lands his old high school crush into his life just when he was reminiscing over her. Skylar is trying to run from her abusive boyfriend and Danny happens to be in the right place at the right time when she needs help the most. Now she has to find away to escape her ex’s clutches for once and for all, which isn’t going to be easy given his family’s wealthy status. Both Danny and Skylar had been harboring secret crushes back in high school and even though the timing isn’t the greatest Skylar isn’t going to let go of the chance to be with Danny. He makes her feel safe and at peace like she’s never had before, hopefully her ex doesn’t destroy their chance of having a future.
“She’d never felt need so strong, a hunger so deep that it clawed up through her soul.”
I was immediately smitten with Danny. He is so kind, caring and in the beginning his sadness just bleeds from the pages and you want to give him a big hug. Skylar is brave and resilient and I’m not sure I would have made it through her ordeal as mentally stable. Together they are simply sweet and just fit. However, even though they know each other from high school, they haven’t seen each other in over 10 years at least which made their romance pace a bit insta lovey.
Overall, I highly enjoyed this cowboy romance. A story filled with love, friends, a little high stakes action, and a touch of the holiday season to round it out. I look forward to reading for Donna Grant books in the future.
