Roped In by L.P. Dover-- 5 star review!!


Title: Roped In
Series: Armed and Dangerous (standalone)
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Romantic Suspense




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.”
“Why?”
“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:

5 stars!!! 

Roped in is a stand-alone cowboy romance that will keep you on your toes and make you swoon at the same time. With some witty exchanges, a heart warming story, and some suprises a long the way, L.P. Dover has "roped" her way into my heart (I know I know, it was a silly pun but I couldn't resist)
Hadley is an up-and-coming Country singer who comes from a well off family and she still is incredibly down to earth and good heart-ed. After an incident in her home she is placed in protective custody pending an investigation putting her not only in new territory but also with someone who clearly doesn't want her around. With TONS of inspiration around her she does her best to work while trying to win over her new protector. 
Blake is an independent undercover specialist who recently took over his grandfather's ranch. After been hurt by 
"the only woman I have ever given a shit about"
he has no interest in "babysitting" a spoiled California girl who he is sure cares more about being pampered and designer things than being a good person. Having been paid a great deal to keep Hadley safe he has made it his mission to put her through the ringer and have her doing the oddest and most annoying chores possible to take her off of the pedestal he is so sure she sits on. 
The last thing either one of these two expected was to find they have so much in common, and learn to love each other a great deal. Can love beat all of the obstacles that they have standing in their way?? Read to find out-- I loved every minute of this book, I felt the story line while the "falling in love" stage seemed a tad off, the rest of the action and story line was seamless.
