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.”

My Review:

I fell in love with L.P. Dover's writing when I read the Gloves Off Series with her seriously sexy MMA fighters :) And since than, I've been devouring pretty much any book of hers I can get my hands on :) So of course I dived into Roped In the first chance I got. And I was definitely not disappointed. In typical L.P. Dover style, this is an incredibly romantic and tender love story, spiced up with danger and action that will keep you on your toes most of the time. The characters are intriguing and I am pretty sure you will fall for Blake the moment you meet him ;)

Blake is definitely hot with a capital H. With his rough cowboy looks, bad boy vibe and air of danger, he is simply irresistible. But the feature of his character I love the most is that when he falls for a woman, he falls hard and he will do anything in his power to protect her. Hadley is quite stubborn in her own right, so of course there is some bickering between the two characters. But she is also independent and strong and even in the face of danger she doesn't break, no matter how hurt or in despair she feels. At the same time she is extremely talented and feminine. So in a few words, she is Blake's perfect other half and probably the only woman who can tame the wild grey-eyed cowboy.

In addition to the incredible chemistry between Blake and Hadley, the story is spiced up with unexpected twists and turns that will make your head spin. The suspense is on high, and let me tell you, no matter what you think, you are most probably wrong. When I found out who was the bad guy in the end I was completely shocked. I definitely didn't expect it. Although, when I think about it, it actually makes sense :)

So if you are looking for a great romantic suspense story, you should definitely read Roped In. Even though, it is the second book in the Armed & Dangerous series, it is a complete standalone so you don't have to read anything else before you start this one :) And if you haven't read L.P. Dover so far, this is the perfect place to start :)
