At Clean Slate Ranch, the men are rugged, the trails are rocky and lassos aren’t only used for roping horses
For Colt Woods, Clean Slate Ranch is home. The dude ranch in Northern California helped him heal from a devastating breakup. So when his ex-Dom, the man who broke his heart, waltzes onto the ranch, Colt doesn’t know how to deal.
A research job at a nearby ghost town brings history PhD Avery Hendrix to Clean Slate. He’s not in town forever, but it doesn’t take long for him to feel the familiar draw to Colt. When they find out they’ll be sharing a cabin on the ranch, it’s all Avery can do to stop himself from bending Colt over a saddle right then and there.
In such close proximity, Colt’s and Avery’s old feelings come galloping back. Soon Colt is doing his master’s bidding again and loving every moment of it. And the pair may be in for the ride of their lives—if the dedicated professor and his rugged cowboy can learn to trust again.

I love Colt and Avery!
The first book in this series, Wild Trail, was good but Roped In is even better; it's a great second chance romance. You can easily read Roped In as a standalone but Wild Trail did set the scene for the series and for the relationship between Colt and Avery so I highly recommend reading it.
Colt and Avery had a relationship several years ago but a few things broke them up. Now Avery has come to Clean Slate Ranch for a temporary job that Colt recommended him for. Once the two of them are near each other again, old feelings come back.
Avery never stopped loving Colt but he still doesn't know if they can be together again. Colt wants and needs Aver; he is determined to prove that he has changed and that the things that broke them up before are no longer an issue.
While some people may think that this story is a bit kinky to me it's very mild. Avery and Colt have a dom/sub relationship but there aren't any clubs or dungeons involved; it's just the two consenting adults doing what they want with each other.
Roped In really got all of my emotions involved – just the way I like it. Once I started reading this I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read the next Clean Slate Ranch book.
A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.
