ARC Review: That Cowboy of Mine by Donna Grant
Dillon Young is proud that she inherited her aunt’s ranch. The problem: someone is trying to run her off and is willing to do whatever it takes. Strange, dangerous things keep happening. Dillion suspects her no-good neighbor and fellow wealthy rancher Hank Stephens. Never a man to get his hands dirty, he sends others to get the job done. So, when the irresistible Cal Bennett is found passed out drunk on her property, Dillion is on high alert. Until someone takes a shot at her and Cal springs to her rescue. When the hard-bodied, no-nonsense-talking cowboy points out that she may need some help, Dillion is inclined to reluctantly agree.
Or a lover?
Waking up on a stranger’s property with a shotgun in his face is not Cal Bennett’s idea of a good time. Never mind that the woman on the other end of the barrel is one of the most fiercely beautiful women he has ever seen. Things get more interesting when he finds himself shielding her from flying bullets. It’s clear that this smart, savvy woman could use a hand and he is all too happy to lend any part of his body she requires. His proposal: pose as lovers until they find out who is after her ranch. As the danger rises and secrets are revealed, the passion explodes between them. There is no turning back.
I really enjoyed That Cowboy of Mine. It's about Dillon Young & Cal Bennett. I really liked them both. Right away you saw how well they worked together and interacted. Right from the start, the suspense rules the story.
I both enjoyed that and wished that the romance didn't take a back seat to it. I did like the suspense and enjoyed how fast it made the book feel. Once I started it I didn't want to stop.
I was happy for Dillion to inherit her aunt's ranch. Sadly someone else isn't as happy as I was. Someone keeps trying to get her to leave and they don't care who gets hurt while they did it.
Cal is a great hero. He's there for Dillion and does everything he can to protect her. He also lets her be the strong, capable woman that she is.
They both work so well together and I liked how their relationship progressed. If you love romantic suspense you'll love this book but if you want a story with more romance it might not be as strong of that front for you. As a whole, it's a very good story. Have any of you read it?
