Danny Oldman may hide his loneliness behind his even temper and cheerful smiles, but his friends know he seems to spend an awful lot of time either working or staying at home and hasn't had a date in a long time. Danny lives for his job and does it really well, but all these years of being first a police officer and then the sheriff and seeing awful crimes have left him feeling sad and lonely. He knows he has been drinking more and more just to get through the night and it can't be good. On som ...more

This is my first read by Donna Grant and I think the word that I am looking for here is "delightful"!!!!

I really liked the small town romance feel this book had while still incorporating a very real and true to life situation here- Skylar the heroine was being stalked,terrorized and physically abused by her Ex.
Danny the local sheriff was beyond charming.
Loved this Cowboy!!!

This book really ended up having it all, some intense drama with equally wild action and a great suspense plus
Mindy Lou's Book Review
I really liked Danny. He seemed to subconsciously wait for Skylar to come back into his life. He had a crush on her in High School and she moved away as soon as they graduated. He never got serious with anyone else in the time they were apart and I like that it might have been because his heart was already taken.

Skylar also had a crush on Danny in high school. If only these two had the guts to approach each other, but then Danny had a point when he said it just wasn't their time yet. Great coup

“A Cowboy Like You” is a well written and addictive story that draws you into the life of Danny Oldman, a positively handsome Lone Star sheriff. He is married to his job and longs to have the kind of love and relationship that others have, however the one person he loves is an old high school crush that has made a new life in Houston, TX.

It is not until Skylar Long walks back into Danny's life that old memories of her start to resurface. His heart stirs up old feelings and a hope that he can get

Another great book by Ms. Grant, not only can she do dragon kings but also cowboys. Danny is the local sheriff and he once loved Skylar. She left, but now she's back and trouble is following her. Danny is her knight with a shiny star, and lots of hot lovin'. Lots of help from the previous couples, as well as couple of yummy friends who I hope get their own books.

A Cowboy Like You was an enjoyable read with a second chance at love romance and a fantastic group of side characters.

Sheriff Danny Oldman is married to the job, at least that’s what he tells people when they ask why he’s still single. But in reality, Danny never got over his high school crush, Skylar Long, who moved away after graduation. So when Danny runs into Skylar as she’s fleeing an abusive relationship, he jumps at the chance to protect her. Skylar never imagined her perfect boy

A Cowboy Like You (Heart of Texas #4) takes the handsome Lone Star sheriff, Danny Oldman, and spotlights his life and ethics.
He has lived for his job, looking out for those in this town. No real personal life, no love interest...just being wedded to his position.

It could be due to a young crush on Skylar Long. She caught his eye and when she left their hometown, he sort of shut down.

Skylar left for the big city and thought she had foun

Danny is as loyal and as dependable as the day is long. He is also lonely and maybe spending a little too much time alone with a bottle of cheap whiskey at night. While he enjoys a takeout meal at a local lookout point, a car pulls in and with it trouble. Thankfully, he is there to stop a violent altercation and save a young woman…who turns out to be Skylar Long. The girl he had a crush on throughout high school.

Skylar is trying to leave an abusive relationship and Danny sets out to help her. Da

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. A Cowboy Like You is the fourth book in Donna Grant’s Heart of Texas series. It can be read as a stand-alone as I have not read the other books in the series and did not find that I felt I was missing anything. This is a second chance at love story. Sherrif Danny Oldman has never gotten over his high school crush Skylar Long so when a chance meeting allows him to rescue her from her abusive boyfriend he is de ...more

A Cowboy Like You was quite the read! Intense drama, great suspense, one charmingly sweet cowboy, and a stronger-than-she-knows heroine, there was so much happening, I couldn’t turn away! I haven’t read previous books in this series and had no trouble following who’s who. However, my curiosity was definitely engaged about recurring characters and I can’t wait to read this backlist!

Cowboys and love go so well together….

If you haven’t been reading this series than Danny and Skylar will be the start of a happy read-a-thon. This series is home, family and love all wrapped up in cowboys. In other words, reading heaven!

Danny and Skylar are old friends. Years earlier, they wanted different things, in different places. Their reunion was sudden, unexpected and marred by a dangerous situation that Skylar couldn’t get away from. Danny’s protective streak was instantly on high alert

Copy kindly received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I quite enjoyed this one. The characters were all likeable, apart from the ones we're meant to hate (and boy did I hate those ones), and it dealt with some serious real life issues.

We've met our hero Danny, in the other books in the series, and his friends at the East Ranch. As usual they all play a big role in the story, just this time it's Dannys personal story.

Our hero is Skylar and I won't say much about what's h

Sissy's Romance Book Review
A Cowboy Like You by Donna Grant is book 4 in the Heart of Texas Series. This is the story of Skylar Long and Danny Oldman. I have read the previous books but feel you could make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Danny has always had a crush on Skylar when they were younger but she left town and he stayed to become the Sheriff of the the town. Of course his feeling for her hasn't really gone away so when she returns to town this may be his chance to win her back. Skylar had to return ...more

I really felt for Skylar, her ex wasn't just an asshat, he was a nasty piece of humanshite.

Danny and Skylar knew each other in HS, and he fancied her, but nothing ever happened. They meet again as she is running from her ex. Ok so yes not the best time to meet again, and sure I do wish more time had gone by. But then again, if you fall in love you fall in love. And they do try to take it slowly, and not you know jump each other at once.

The ex was a abusive, possessive scumbag. I hated him so muc

Danny is feeling dissatisfaction with his life. Oh sure, he likes his job as a sheriff, has great friends, and his town is wonderful, but he doesn't have anyone at home to share his heart with. Until he rescues someone from his past one night. Skylar was the girl he had always crushed on, but never made a move on back in high school. He always thought she was destined for bigger and better things than him, so when she moved out of their small town and into the city, he knew for sure he w

A wonderful addition to the series (I've read other books in the series before) in general, and a story I just really enjoyed reading from beginning till end.

It wasn't anything overly spectacular and quite predictable, which is why I didn't rate it higher than 3,5 stars. But nonetheless, it was a book I was always excited for to pick up at the end of the day, when I read it on my Kindle in bed.

It was a fast paced read thanks to the enjoyable writing style.

Danny and Skylar were high school friends that meet up by chance when she’s on the run from an abusive boyfriend. Danny, the Easts and Harpers become her knights in shining armor to protect her from her rich, dangerous ex. I felt even though they knew each other many years ago, the romance was extremely fast for someone who literally just days ago ran away from a very abusive man. The ending of the book had some violence, just as a warning for people that have triggers. The plausibility of the e ...more

I love the covers of this series. They make me want to get in them and have a cowboy to call mine.
Danny and Skylar are that typical teenage couple who have crush, but no one is brave enough to make the first move, and when the courage comes, the opportunity has passed. And that made Danny heartbroken.
Years later, Danny's crush returns to town, and now she has serious problems when her ex decides never to stop bothering/stalking her.

If you don't follow this author and her books you should. This particular book is about Danny and Skylar and old friends coming back together through a very difficult time. It has a great cast of characters and some nail biting moments. This is a fantastic book and one to continue to read over and over again.

If you’re a Donna Grant fan you know she has a way of pulling you into the world she created. If you’ve read the other 3 books in this series you know how Danny has always been a friend to the East’s and Harper’s. It was great to see him get his own story even if he had to survive he’ll to get it. This story is real and unfortunately relatable to many. Skylar finds herself in an abusive relationship and goes through hell to survive. I’m looking forward to the next cowboy adventure.

It is not within my being to understand the need to beat on another person. So I normally avoid books that have abuse as the story line. Yes, this is a second chance romance but it doesn't ring true to me that she would even consider jumping back into a relationship while still running from an abuser. From the standpoint of Danny, he has created a world for himself that we can envy. He has his dream job and an amazing circle of friends. Now he has a chance to realize a relationship with his high ...more
This story grabbed me from the first chapter. I did not want to have to put it down. The story flows smoothly, has well developed characters, deals with real-world issues, and puts it all together seamlessly. We meet the two main characters; one is a small county Sheriff and the other was the Sheriff's crush in high school. They meet for the first time since high school graduation; almost ten years later, under very unsavory conditions. Due to the Sheriff's honesty and real caring, he is surroun ...more

This book was received as an ARC from Donna Grant’s ARC Angels, the following opinions and commentary are my own and no way reflect the greater DG Groupie Community. This book is a part of the Heart of Texas series, and is a Contemporary Romance novel. Full disclosure, I am not a fan of Contemporary Romance, but I am a HUGE fan of Donna Grants many paranormal series.

This book was hard for me to read due to the nature of the plight of the heroine. She is trying to escape an abusive relationship,
