Who says a wild heart can’t be tamed?

For years, I lived for the job and let it control me. Violence was all I knew. I protected, killed, and served. My name is Blake Evans, one of the best undercover cops in the country. I thought I was about to live a quiet life on my ranch in Wyoming until an old friend showed up and changed everything. He brought me her, Hadley Rivers, country music sensation and the one woman I couldn't have. I didn't want her but she had me completely roped in.

My job is to protect her, to keep her away from some psycho who wants her for himself. However, there's more to her story than I was led to believe. I promised to keep her safe and I won't back down . . . even if I have to die trying. I can't let him have her.








Blake was a little ways ahead, but stopped and turned around. “You okay back there, princess?”

I waved him on. “Don’t worry about me!” I shouted. Picking up my pace, I reached down and grabbed a handful of snow. Each step he took, I did double to catch up to him. My fingers were numb from the snow, but I was almost there. Just a few more steps . . .

Blake sidestepped and tackled me out of nowhere, making me scream. His feet slipped and we both fell to the ground, laughing as we rolled around in the snow. He ended up pinning me to the ground, his legs straddling my waist and his body flush with mine. I shivered and it wasn’t because of the snow.

“You should know better than to sneak up on someone like me,” he said. His eyes strayed to my lips.

“I didn’t think you’d hear me,” I whispered breathlessly.

“You’d be surprised what I notice, princess.” He trailed a finger down my cheek to my rapidly beating heart. “Like how your heart is racing right now. I didn’t know I had that effect on you.” I blew out a nervous breath and he smiled, his lips getting closer to mine. “Tell me what you want,” he murmured.

“I can’t.”


“Because once I say the words, I can’t take them back.”

He brought his hands to my face, his thumbs tracing my cheeks. “Maybe this will help.” His lips closed over mine and I melted against him, willingly giving in. I’d never been kissed like that and I didn’t want it to stop. I wanted more. He pushed his tongue inside and I moaned as the heat rose between my legs. Holy hell, I wanted him. Rocking my hips up into him, I dug my nails in his back and he growled, pulling away.

“Fuck, Hadley.”

“What’s wrong?” I asked, breathing hard.

He brushed the hair off my face and kissed me again. “You make me want things I can’t have.”

I nodded. He said exactly what I was thinking. “I know how you feel.”

~~Jess's Review~~

I was given a copy of Roped In in exchange for an honest review.
Roped In is about a super star singer Hadley Rivers. With all the fame comes the crazies… And Hadley had fallen into the category with a stage 4 clinger stalker. After a stellar performance Hadley comes home with her “boyfriend” to a home invasion of sorts. Hadley’s stalker was in the house and during the confrontation Hadley’s bodyguard and “boyfriend” was shot. Like any overprotective father Hadley’s dad sent her to protective custody. Which brings us to the handsome rugged cowboy Blake Evans.. Oh I love a cowboy who can make me swoon just by looks alone… Also he was kinda like a sour patch kid… First he is sour then he was sweet. Blake didn’t want to be a babysitter to Hadley because he automatically assumed she was a stuck up rich bitch. But things changed when Blake finally saw the light…..
I was very excited to get a chance to read Roped In. I am a huge fan of all of L.P. Dover’s work. I dove right into this book as soon as I got it and for the first half of the book I just couldn’t put it down. I just had to know what was going to happy to Hadley. I loved the first half of this book but at about 65% is when my feelings for this book lessened…. For me I love a good story line with plot twist but I felt that this book had too many twist and turns. I understand that plot twist are great for the story line but I felt as if they lessened the impact of this story. I loved the idea of Hadley and Blake falling for one another with the aspect of a stalker to catch.
I would not say that this is a terrible book I just think that it wasn’t a book for me. I would give it a 3 ½ raindrops because it did have a good story line with a lot of action and romance. If you are a fan of huge action and suspense I would give this book a try.
