Goodreads Summary: Robin and her niece Miranda have decided to stay in the tiny but friendly town of Salt Gap, Texas while they figure out what to do with their lives. With only a picture to go by, Robin goes on a scavenger hunt through town trying to discover the link between her late grandfather and coincidence that brought her to the same place.
She’s still afraid of relationships, so when the hot cowboy Tyler starts to get a little too friendly, she’s more than happy to spot all the red flags she can find to help her avoid liking him. Like the waitress Elizabeth and her weirdly close relationship with Tyler. But as Miranda is quick to point out, they’re on a journey guided by fate and that can only mean one thing – if she’s meant to find love in Salt Gap, it will happen with or without her permission.
A Little Like Love is part two of the Robin and Tyler Series. It is a novella at approx. 20,000 words. This is a CLEAN New Adult story.

You need to pick up this and the first novella of this series immediately, especially since this is being released tomorrow. I love reading anything by Cheyanne, and I'd probably read her grocery shopping list. I am now on my way to read everything she's written.
After reading part 1 of this three-novella trilogy, I was instantly in love, and looking for more.
And after reading my review, you'll probably understand why. :)
Robin and her niece Miranda have finally settled in Salt Gap, Texas, where they previously ended up after Robin had a major breakdown which brought her far away from her home in Houston. She ends up renting a house from Tyler, the cowboy that has always liked her more than a little, and things have gotten even more romantic. He wants to go on a date with her, but she refuses, and then when he starts getting friendly with a waitress, Robin realizes that she actually may have feelings for him.
I love Tyler oh so freakin' much. My love for him from the first book until now went like this:
But I've always seen his good side to things. That man is so adorable and so devouring. Reading his catch phrases to Robin just made me feel like a little kid all over again. Adorable and everything I am looking for in a hot fictional hottie. Plus, he's a country boy, which makes everything even better!
The plot in this book has developed to be something great. The whole novella was fast-paced and racing. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen, and how the amazing couple's relationship would grow and become beautiful. I'm very excited to now see how this awesome series is going to end!
My only tiny problem with this book was the character of Robin. I like her, sure, but at times she's too selfish and I didn't seem to like her personality and the way she handles her relationships. She's the type to wait for people to beg her to be with them, lurking for attention. I know people like that in reality, and I don't think I'd like book protagonists to be that way, too. But she was very realistic.
The character of Miranda will always be my favourite. She's kick-ass, utterly hilarious and sarcastic. She's the type that many of us can relate to because of her witty personality and issues.
But really, I love all of the characters in this series, one way or another. Cheyanne always makes them relatable and sarcastic!
In conclusion, this racing sequel to A Little Like Fate was awesome. It's funny and has a beautiful romance! No second-book syndrome here! Third book, come to me!
