The Legend by Donna Grant
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance
A LONE STAR LOVER
They live to protect. They live to fight for honor and justice. They live to love the women who have captured their souls. These are the Sons of Texas, from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.
In The Legend, Callie Reed doesn’t need a man to protect her. An expert sharpshooter and renegade hacker, this Texas-born spitfire’s got the skills and the courage to stand up to any danger―no matter how deadly. But when she becomes the target of a shadowy organization known as the Saints, Callie is forced to team up with the one man she can’t outshoot: the gorgeous, and infuriating, Lone Star legend named Wyatt Loughman…
A Delta Force Colonel with a rock-hard body and stone-cold heart, Wyatt has been teasing and tormenting Callie since they were playmates on his family’s ranch. Of course, he’s wildly attracted to the fiery, strong-willed Callie. But he’s always hidden his feelings behind a wall of Texas tough and military cool, even as he’s burning up with desire. Can Wyatt save Callie’s life―without putting her love in the line of fire?
The Legend is the 3rd book in the Sons of Texas series. I was new to Donna Grant when I picked up this book, and I was super excited to dive into an action-packed romance. This one did not disappoint. It was packed full of adventure, and mystery, and most importantly sexy alpha men. Although I knew this was the 3rd in the series, and I knew I hadn’t read the first two, I went ahead and decided I would read this one anyway. I know, I know I am so bad at reading out of order! The other two books follow different couples, so while I was mostly alright and picked up on the storyline I think I would have been able to follow a little bit easier had I started at the beginning. So that is what I would recommend when picking up the Sons of Texas books, and I will most definitely be re-visiting this after I have a chance to read the first two.
But on to more about the book…
The Legend is, at its heart a second chance romance. The two MC’s Callie and Wyatt had a fling when they were younger that ended in a soul crushing manner, particularly for Callie. But when a dangerous situation brings them face to face again for the first time in at least 10 year, a hell of a lot of sparks fly. The Legend is told in a dual POV way, which means we get to be inside the head of both Callie and Wyatt.
Okay, so let me just state that I LOVED Callie. She was such a strong female character. Despite the family she comes from, she is determined to prove that she is destined for more than just a life of crime. The Loughman family takes her in and trains her to be a hacking genius, as well as how to fight for herself. She is much happier handling her own battles, and doesn’t need a man (especially Wyatt) around to save her. She can shoot and fight just as well as any of the guys, and is never going to sit on the sidelines. I just thought she was such a BADASS. Grant wrote her character so well, and in honesty this is what a strong female should look like.
I also have to say that I seriously loved Wyatt’s character. He is one SEXY alpha male. He loves Callie, even though he struggles not to let it show. But my oh my this guy has such a big heart. He will do anything to protect Callie, not only from his enemies, but also from her family. He is strong and broody and it was so hard not to fall in love with him. Hell, it was hard not to fall in love with the two of them together…because they are absolutely perfect!
Grant has such a great writing style. This book kept me engrossed from the very beginning. There were so many things going on, bad guys to fight and action packed scenes that this book read like I was watching an action movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. I was even a little sad when it was over. I really just overall loved this book. I look forward to reading the first two books of this series and then re-reading this one…you know just in case I missed anything. If you like your romances action packed, seriously pick up this series.
