by Donna Grant
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 book that I have been waiting for!
Wyatt and Callie.
As I have mentioned on my previous post on the second book, I was really waiting for this book to arrive.
From the start of book one, I knew that there was something about Wyatt that made my want to read his book and I was right.
It is not easy to love someone so deeply, that you have to leave because you thought that you are giving this person a chance to grow, more importantly, you are trying your best to save not just the person you love but of your self of the heartache when that person leaves you. Being in Wyatt shoes? He is truly a Legend. But more what I love about him, is that he loves Callie too much.
I really understand where he is coming from, but the fact that he had to literately and physical remove his emotions to the point that he had to make sure his brothers are safe? That is one testament that he loves too deeply. And yet he is afraid to show it.
As the story goes, we are shown the scarifies that Wyatt had done to make sure that Callie is safe. Boy oh boy! If that did not queue you on how he feels, maybe the way his thought ran would. It was borderline heartbreaking, at the same time, I wanna kick him in the nuts for thinking like that.
Well, he is man, so… what else is new?
“Love is always complicated. What you need to ask yourself is if you can live without her. If you can’t, then you’ve gotta do something.”
These words was said by one of the sub characters in the book, And it was one heck of an eye opener.
Callie on the other hand, I love her attitude. Also her wits, and her bravery, but most of all, I love how much she love Wyatt. The pain will always be there, and yet, true love cannot be denied. I cried. Especially on how she faced the Saints. She is one woman, that everyone should be. Well, at least on my world that is.
He wasn’t whole unless he was with her.
This really tears me up. It made me realize why I love reading Ms. Grant’s books.
It’s all about emotions. How she manipulates them. How she brings it so alive in her books. Especially, the emotions on a past love that is so strong, remembering them, would bring you to your knees. Donna Grant’s books makes you want to hold on to the person you love and never let go. Because if you do, you will forever live a life without knowing what true love is.
Friendly, caring, kind, sweet, passionate, all consuming, and forever. That is how Ms. Grant’s books are for me.
As I close this review, I am left wondering…
Is this truly the end? Or will there be another one. Because, they are still hunted, and I would love to see them hunt for those who wrong them.
