Early Review: Cowboy, Cross My Heart by Donna Grant

Aug 11, 2018

New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant takes you deep inside the Texas rodeo scene in the second book in her Heart of Texas series, Cowboy, Cross My Heart, where danger and desire ride side by side. . .
Naomi Pierce isn’t the type to let a cowboy sweep her off feet. It’s not her first rodeo, after all. But when she returns to her Texas hometown, she can’t help but be swept up again in the rough-and-tumble world of hard-riding, bronco-busting good-ol’-boys she loved as a girl. She might be here to photograph her Rodeo Queen best friend. But it’s one fine-looking cowboy who really captures her eye…
Brice Harper is all man, all muscle, and all heart. From the moment he rides into the stadium, he can’t help but notice the beautiful stranger with a camera watching him from the stands. It doesn’t take a zoom lens to see the sparks of instant attraction. But things really heat up when he meets Naomi up-close—and he discovers that someone is stalking her friend. Brice wouldn’t be any kind of cowboy if he didn’t offer to help the ladies out. But can the rough rider keep this spirited shutterbug out of danger—without risking his heart?


If you love cowboys, this book is for you. Grant gives us the details of all the little things we love about cowboys and their way of life. The homes and land, the horses, and of course the cowboys are front and center. Naomi is back in town to help out her best friend, after a terrible tragedy in her teens made her leave. Naomi never expected to come across a man like Brice and feelings begin to awaken. Naomi starts to play with the idea of coming back and starting over. She has forgotten how much she loves Texas. An unsettling secret from the past grips her friends. Naomi will stop at nothing to help save her friend and Brice is right at her side. Grant weaves a great story of friendship, passion, and tragedy. I had a better connection to Brice’s brother and his wife than I did with Naomi. This is a great book with plenty of spiciness and suspense. I would definitely read more in books in the series.
