Roped In Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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 him 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....

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!
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.
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.
