eARC Book review: Cowboy, Cross My Heart (Heart of Texas #2) by Donna Grant
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
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?
Naomi is back in town to visit her friend and mother and to photograph the rodeo that was a part of her life for years. She moved to D.C. years ago for college and just stayed. While at the rodeo to see her friend they are attacked out of the blue and Brice Harper comes to the rescue. This story heats up quickly and maintains a fast paced throughout. This story really sucked me in. If i could have read it through in one sitting i would have. Naomi's best friend Whitney is a rodeo queen and what should be a fun reunion for the friends turns scary when they are attacked. As the story moves forward more and more is revealed and what's going on with Whitney is much bigger than anyone thought. The only problem i had with the story is how fast it wound up at the end. I expected more of a ending to the bad guys than i got. In spite of that I'm looking forward to more in this series.
