Book Description

Roped In: A Blacktop Cowboys® Novella

Ambition has always been his biggest downfall...until he meets her.

World champion bulldogger Sutton Grant works hard on the road, but his quiet charm has earned the nickname "The Saint" because he's never been the love 'em and leave 'em type with the ladies. When he’s sidelined by an injury, he needs help keeping his horse in competition shape, but he fears trying to sweet-talk premier horse trainer London Gradsky is a losing proposition--because the woman sorta despises him.

London is humiliated when her boyfriend dumps her for a rodeo queen. What makes the situation worse? She’s forced to see the lovebirds on the rodeo circuit every weekend. In an attempt to save face, London agrees to assist the notoriously mild, but ruggedly handsome Sutton Grant with his horse training problem on one condition: Sutton has to pretend to be her new boyfriend.

But make believe doesn't last long between the sassy cowgirl and the laid-back bulldogger. When the attraction between them ignites, London learns that sexy Sutton is no Saint when that bedroom door closes; he's the red-hot lover she's always dreamed of.

The more time they spend together, the more Sutton realizes he wouldn’t mind being roped and tied to the rough and tumble cowgirl for real…

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Contemporary Western! 10 Oct. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a review for Roped In: A Blacktop Cowboys Novella by Lorelei James, which is also part of the super sexy 1001 Dark Nights novella collection. Thus far the collection has boasted tales from Larissa Ione, Heather Graham, and Cherise Sinclair just to name a few…with a promising Breed novella coming from the lovely Lara Adrian next month. This novella weighs in at an estimated 145 pages, and James uses every page to the advantage of the story. You will find that some novellas leave you wanting more details, more story, more character development, but that is not the case with Roped In at all.

This tale is about a sassy horse trainer on the rebound and a sweetheart of a cowboy who is struggling with a change of life moment. If you are familiar with rodeo personalities, this book will bring back memories, and if you have yet to get a behind the lines peek at rodeo life then you are in for a treat. London and Sutton seem to be at odds before life pushes them together again, but after striking a deal they start to work toward a common goal. As with many love stories, the end goal becomes muddled in living life and the relationship budding between London and Sutton hangs in the balance.

I am not a huge fan of contemporaries, but I thoroughly enjoyed this short and sweet story. It is ideal for a before bedtime read or a short trip, depending on how fast you read (and whether or not you can put it down). Once again the 1001 Dark Nights collection shines, and Lorelei James definitely delivers on her home turf of western romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A smoking hot cowboy, his perfect gal, and tons of passion...a must read! 9 Sept. 2014
By Jillian Read-Love-Blog - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Roped In is story number 6.5 in author Lorelei James’ Blacktop Cowboy Series as well as novella #9 in the 1,001 Dark Nights Series. I was so excited to get my hands on the newest cowboy from Lorelei and oh man, this was one hell of a ride. I loved every minute!

As a world champion bulldogger, Sutton Grant isn’t a stranger to injury. But his last injury was almost the permanent lights out type and since then he’s been on the injured reserve, so to speak. He’s on the mend and feeling pretty good but unfortunately, since he couldn’t exactly do much riding, his horse’s training has been neglected and it was really showing. He needed help and knew exactly the person to call. London Gradsky. Too bad she probably wouldn’t be thrilled to hear from him considering she kinda hates him.

Still bearing the sting of being dumped by her boyfriend, London really needed a distraction. She never would have thought it would have come in a 6 foot 3, hot and sexy, bulldogger package. When Sutton Grant had gotten in touch with her to help him with his horse, her first reaction was to tell him to find someone else but instead her evil genius went to work and she figured he would be the perfect revenge on her ex. All he had to do was pretend to be her new beau and flaunt their new relationship in her ex’s face. Genius! Except that almost right off the bat her feelings were anything but pretend. Would she be able to stick with the ruse until his horse’s training was over and her ex got his healthy spoonful of “see what you’re missing”?

Lemme just take a moment to bask in the memory of Sutton and London *dreamy sigh* Ok, I’m back. This novella absolutely knocked my socks off. From the very first chapter it is packed with emotion, humor, and tons of heat. Sutton is an amazing character. Not only is he built, handsome and sexy as all get out, but also he is sweet and kind. Caring and shy. Sure he knows he’s a good-looking guy but he’s been single for a little while now and is isn’t very confident when it comes to London and is vulnerable. Those are the qualities that had me swooning. London is one of the most fun characters I’ve read in a while. She is such a spitfire and had me laughing out loud more than a few times while reading. I would totally hang out with her. But beyond that she’s strong and not afraid to go after what she wants. Together they are beyond smoking hot! Their personalities compliment one another deliciously and they have a chemistry that is mouthwatering to read. This book played out like a movie in my mind’s eye while I read it and I couldn’t put it down. I’m actually a bit mad at myself for reading it so fast but it was the type of story you lose yourself in. And the ending? The. Freaking. Best.

Thank you, Lorelei, for a smoking hot cowboy, his perfect gal, and tons of passion!

4.0 out of 5 stars Short, sweet, and hella steamy! 9 Sept. 2014
By Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Ms. James consistently brings the power and the passion in her stories. No one can write contemporary erotic western romances like her. Her alpha cowboys always get me riled up and needing a cold shower. The chemistry is ALWAYS there, the steam factor is ALWAYS off the charts, and the emotional pull from each character ALWAYS drags me in and never lets go. Sutton Grant is yet another sexy as sin, delicious cowboy who has been in a rut ever since his injury a while back. London Gradsky is a kick ass cowgirl who has been scorned, and she can't quite let go. Sutton has something London needs and London has something Sutton needs. Sutton needs a trainer for his stubborn horse, and London needs a man by her side to save face. A deal is struck, but no one is thinking of the consequences. When there is no more training to be done, and no more jealousy to be had, where does that leave the two? Do they go their separate ways, or do they cave in to their true feelings for one another?

Roped In is just another example of how Ms. James can capture a reader's heart with just a few chapters. Short, sweet, and hella steamy, Sutton and London's love story will have you blushing and laughing the whole way through.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun and sexy romp and a great addition to Blacktop Cowboys series. 12 Sept. 2014
By Kahea - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sutton Grant was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t not like him when we first met him in Turn and Burn, Fletch and Tanna’s book, but in comparison to Fletch and even Eli ~ sigh, yes I have a burning to desire to know more about Muddy Gap’s resident horse whisperer ~ he just couldn’t hold a candle to either of them, but in Roped In, he definitely gives those two hot men, as well as my ultimate favorite BTC cowboy a run for his money. He’s sweet, sexy and insightful, something that was shown in T & B, and just has that it factor that would make anyone want him as their personal book boyfriend.

London Gradsky is an absolute spitfire of a woman, and I was offended for her with how she was treated not only by her ex-Stitch but his new woman. Tough as nails with no edit button, she’d be someone I’d want on my side in a verbal smackdown. She cracked me up and introduced me to a new term, douche nozzle. So when she and Sutton meet up again there is no question that things will get interesting.

The chemistry between them is explosive and hot. I’ll never think of a gun range in the same way ever again An ornery horse, and a plot to get back at the ex, may have put them in close quarters, but soon they find they compliment each other, despite their differences, and fit in more ways than one.

I wish this was longer, the downside of novellas, but if you’ve never read the Blacktop Cowboys series, you can definitely read this as a standalone and not feel like you were missing pieces, though I believe that you should definitely read all the books because there are a few things alluded to that you won’t catch unless you have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Texas-style snark 9 Sept. 2014
By Bookzilla - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fast, fun and filled with Texas-style snark. Believable characters, dialogue and story line. Easy to follow and fall in love with the people, aside from Paige the Beauty Twit.

I will re-read this story and always look forward to, pre-order when possible, new works by this author.
