Danny and Skylar’s second chance love story in A Cowboy Like You, book four in the Heart of Texas series by Donna Grant, was an amazing, and enjoyable tale. Trigger Warning: at the heart of this story is a woman unexpectedly being in and attempting to leave an abusive relationship; it can be graphic.
Lone Star sheriff Danny Oldman is still single and tells anyone who asks that it’s because he is married to his job; keeping the people of his beloved Texas hometown safe. The truth is, Danny is still pining for his high school crush who left town after graduation.
Skylar Long never expected to return to her hometown but finds herself heading there as she fled Houston and her possessive boyfriend; the man of her dreams turned out to be a nightmare of abuse.
Seeing Danny again surprises Skylar, realizing that their long-ago attraction is still there and more powerful than ever. Danny’s number one priority is to keep Skylar safe and hidden from her wealthy, powerful ex before this sadistic man finds her and harms her again.
Ms. Grant wrote an intense, emotional and exciting romantic suspense that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, suspense, a dysfunctional family, fear, and endearing characters giving Danny and Skylar a chance at love, happiness, and a future neither expected. I highly recommend A Cowboy Like You to other readers.
