Synopsis

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?

So this book is considered an inter-connected standalone. Yes, you could read this book by itself, but I would read the first two books (The Hero and The Protector) first. I was able to follow this story but some things were just a bit confusing for me, because I didn’t know the history with the family. Also, it was a lot of characters swirling around and I think it would have made more sense to me had I experienced the first two books.

Generally, I enjoyed the story. Callie, in particular, was really likable and I enjoyed her fighting spirit. She has never had an easy go of things in life, but she always keeps trying and learning from her experiences. I also enjoyed that we see Callie’s character working on coding and other factors that would require her to be intelligent and able to think on her feet. I personally love seeing a heroine who is able to knock the socks off the guys and Callie is definitely that.

Wyatt’s character is the epitome of broody, alpha male. However, even though he was that, he was also sensitive and his softer side did come through during certain parts of the story. Another facet of Wyatt that I loved is that the reader gets to go back in time with he and Callie. We see their past, and we also see Wyatt learning from the past. Callie is trying to protect her heart, but Wyatt seemed to learn his heart.

One thing I really struggled with in this book was some of the things the characters did just didn’t make much sense to me. One scene that stood out was Wyatt carrying Callie to a location. They had a car and could have driven in, but Wyatt feels that’s too risky, so he decided to carry her. To me, this seemed to make them even more vulnerable. There were other times where this happened in the book. I didn’t necessarily mind the character doing one thing vs another, it was just hard for me to see the character actually doing that.

Overall, I enjoyed this story. The story is full of non-stop action. I could honestly seeing this series being made into a movie, or t.v. series because the action is always going. There are no dull moments and I enjoyed that a lot.
