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.

Huston we have a problem.. I'm addicted to Roped In and all things Blake!!

Just what I needed. A breath of fresh air.. I was so eager to delve into this one because it's been a while since I've read a cowboy type book. And now, after ROPED IN? I can see how much I have missed those country boys and their sexiness..

Blake isn't just another country boy though. He moved to the farm lifestyle but grew up in the city, where he was part of the protective services. That combination alone just spells out trouble for the next girl that he is bound to have to keep safe. Add to that his sinful mouth, godly looks and an attitude to outrun any bad boy? Yeah, I was wishing Hadley all the best of luck.

Hadley is a world famous singer who among her many problems, ends up being the victim of a car and mouse with a stalked who ended up killing her dear friend and almost had her long life best friend dead too. But luckily he is alive, barely. Now, trying to steer clear of a death of her own, she is sent to be under Blakes protection..

Oh boy.

He wants nothing to do with another bratty pop star who is bound to make his life a living hell. THAT is until he meets her..

She sees past his arrogance and bad boy attitude and decides to give him a taste of his own medicine..

In the process, Hadley ends up showing Blake how down to earth, sweet, smart and all round bad ass she is. Despite everything that she went through and what could have happened to her that night, Blake can only begin by admiring her strength.

It goes without saying that some of those sexy times and sexy minds will play a role between them. BUT it doesn't pan out how you might think it would. Nope. L.P. Dover sure knows how to mess with our minds, hearts and emotions...












I truly loved every aspect of this story. I was grabbed in interest from the first chapter and I never lost sight in wanting, no NEEDING to know what will happen till the very end. And that surely was an emotional journey.

THANK YOU L.P. Dover for the ARC of this incredible story. It brought tears to my eyes at the same time that I got chills and laughed like an idiot. I definitely think that spells out the best possible way to experience a book!! Not to mention the eye candy. Oh dear lord. All the puns that come to mind when a cowboy is in my uhmm hands? I mean kindle, IN MY KINDLE... What I wouldn't do to be whisked away into the country with the protective hands of Blake.. Huston we have a problem! My mind is not leaving the gutter. At all. I'm done.

Looking forward in one clicking everything that comes with your name!! I adored ROPED IN and cannot wait to read it again and again.. ;)









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.”
