ARC BOOK REVIEW: Roped Tight by Kim Loraine



Another great MM read for this month! It must be something about March; it’s my birthday month ya know. Roped Tight is a standalone in the Ryker Ranch series about Sam Ryker, ex bull rider, and Tucker Weston, foreman on his family’s ranch.

What I loved:
The second chance romance trope, which is usually hard to please me on, was well done. I loved that it wasn’t a long, drawn-out relationship over the years but instead more of a summer fling, maybe even awakening for Sam that ended badly.

You’re going to gasp. I didn’t mind the flashback! Most likely because it was one flashback, which worked perfectly. The story starts, Sam and Weston see each other for the first time in years, boom flashback. The author then tells their backstory and boom back to the present time and tackles the issues at hand. I got all the info I needed, wasn’t drowned in useless information; it was perfect.

There’s a lot of family dynamic; if you have read the rest of the series, you understand what I am talking about, but again the author doesn’t drown you in everyone else’s drama. The story is about Sam and Weston, and she sticks to their storyline. PS- I loved them. Obviously, if I like the book, I’m going to love the characters, but in case you didn’t get that.

If you read my review of the last book in this series, I wasn’t happy with the schmexy scenes. The author totally makes up for that in this book. Which was a little strange since they felt really absent in the last one, but I don’t hold a grudge and the schmexy scenes here are fire.

What I, maybe, didn’t love so much.

My only real critique of the book would be that Sam and Weston’s hang-ups, more Sams, get dragged out a little longer than I’d have liked. I was like, okay, let us get on with it, but she does, so all is forgiven.

I thoroughly enjoyed Roped Tight. I can’t say no to an MM story, and this author did a great job bringing Sam and Weston to life. If you love cowboys, second chance romance, and a little drama mixed in, this is the book for you!

Roped Tight by Kim Loraine is now live!

You never forget the one that got away.

Second chances don't come around every day, but Tucker Weston is mine.

Ten years ago he cut me loose after I fell hard for him one summer on my family's ranch. I left without looking back. I chased my dreams and became the champion bull rider I was meant to be. But I never forgot the first man I loved.

Now, he's here in front of me, and though I've sworn to hate him for breaking my heart, I want him more than I should.  I promised myself I'd never give into him again, because when I'm around him, I make the wrong decisions. But all it takes is one kiss, and he's got me roped tight.

Roped Tight is a standalone M/M romance  set in the Ryker Ranch world.
Binge the entire Ryker Ranch series!
