Cowboy, Cross My Heart by Donna Grant

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?

Mary Jo☆☆☆
A cute story that quickly morphs into something dark and twisted.

Naomi is back home to enjoy a rare visit with her mother and her best friend, Whitney. Whitney is the current rodeo queen and Naomi loves watching Whitney in all her pageant glory. It takes a dark twist one evening, when someone tries to grab Whitney from the rodeo grounds and then attacks Naomi. She's rescued by Brice Harper and the two quickly make a connection.

Unfortunately, that's only the tip of the iceberg and as weekend goes along, other tragedies occur. Brice's feelings for Naomi grow as do hers for him, but she can't help but blame herself for dragging him into her mess.

The ending seemed a bit rushed after all the drama leading up to the reveal of the person behind the attacks. I did enjoy the book and can't wait to see where the author takes us next.

I didn't know how this book would compare to the first book, however. I was so happy it lived up to my expectations.

Brice was just a boy in book one and has grown up to be an amazing man in this book. When he was faced with helping a stranger he didn't think twice. What he didn't know, was by helping Naomi Pierce he would be thrust into a world of drama and corruption within the rodeo circuit.

I loved the chemistry between Brice and Naomi. The twists and turns in this book kept me reading on.

Such a great addition to this series.
