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 resonated deep with me. It talked about a lot of issues such as stalking and relationship abuse. Women being abused by men-especially men with power and money. I liked how the play of small-town loyalty and real respect was shown in this book. Sometimes, the big and powerful players can force a small-town’s hands. In this book, it was not the case. I truly enjoyed reading this novel. Women need to speak up more. To be heard, they cannot remain silent hoping it will go away. Abusers never stop. Until they’re forced by the law. Even then, it can be a battle.
The bubbling romance between the two protagonists was done well. I could feel the tug of pull between them. It was irresistible. They were charming, funny, and real. I enjoyed the rollercoaster of emotions this book dealt.
Overall, it was a great journey. I recommend this tale to fans of Nora Roberts, Carla Neggers, and Brenda Novak. This was a romantic, heartfelt, and deep read. The domestic violence and abuse was real and a real reminder to all women out in the world. Donna Grant has a way of capturing her audience and keeping them coming back for more. I can’t wait to read another book by her!
