Rope Burn by Em Petrova

She wants to turn up the heat. He’s got the skills to whip her into a frenzy.

TV food show host Tabbart Tracy works hard to give viewers her best recipes. But while her fans are legion, her personal life is colder than a meat locker. Most men just want her to serve up some pie—in the nude.

One glance at her assistant’s sexy brother, though, and her body skips straight from low simmer to rolling boil. Especially when she tracks him down at a stud ranch. Where he’s the stud.

When a certain little TV foodie personally requests Stowe’s company for a week, he’s flattered as hell. She needs to give up some control, and as a sex therapist otherwise known as the “Dom from Down Under”, Stowe has the leather, rope, and paddles to do it.

Just as Tabbart melts into a puddle under Stowe’s hands, her worst fear chills her back to reality: someone recognizes her. Worse, her Master frowns on opening her checkbook to make it all go away. But trusting him means hanging onto their connection with both hands—while he takes her for the ride of her life.

Warning: This book contains a TV chef looking for some R&R (as in rough and raunchy) and a whip-wielding Aussie cowboy Dom intent on showing her she can take the heat. As hot as—and anywhere—she wants it.

Another hot little erotic book from the Boot Knockers Ranch. I enjoyed reading about Stowe, an Aussie cowboy in Texas. When Tabbart, a celebrity TV chef, sees Stowe for the first time it is lust at first sight for both of them. She tracks him down at the ranch and pays for him for a week. Imagine the scandal if the public finds out.

Rope Burn is a hot and steamy story. I loved the BDSM elements but I did think they leaned more toward a fantasy version of BDSM rather than reality, but I didn't mind. I also really enjoy the general setting on the ranch. Reading this made me want to go out, sit in the sun and have a picnic. I hope we will be getting more stories from the Boot Knockers ranch.

Hot, hot, hot! I just love this series; each book can be read as a standalone too. Tabbart is a famous food show host. Stowe is the “dom from down under” at the Boot Knockers Ranch. When these two set eyes on each other you can feel the heat. When Tabbart hunts down Stowe you knew it was gonna be on like donkey kong! This was a hot, steamy read and in true Boot Knockers fashion it swept you off your feet and made you wish you were there on the ranch! When Tabbart goes for week number two you knew it was gonna be good and couldn’t wait to see how it all ended.

I've enjoyed all the Boot Knockers books to date, and this one is another fun and feisty book in the series.

There has not been a celebrity at the Ranch before, and it does rather make things complicated – Stowe however is definitely up to the task. Oh and we get to play voyeurs as he introduces her to D/s in a tantalising way, clearly both of them having more feelings than they had expected or perhaps even wanted. There are some lovely touches in a story which is so concentrated in the couple. The meeting with the cook, the sister who works for the TV station. And a perfect BK ending.

I highly recommend this to you – but you might prefer to read it in private in case your cheeks warm up – Tabbart's certainly do!

This was a nice, steamy short read for me. I am a big fan of books with a ranch theme and the TV cooking show star aspect made this one stand out to me.

Tabbart and Stowe definitely live two very different lifestyles. Both have been content with their lives for a while now, but lately everything is feeling stagnant.

Tabbart longs to take her hair down, relax, and be herself out of the public eye for once. She has a tarnished history with men and isn't sure what she wants anymore, but when she lays eyes on her assistant's brother, she gets a huge sexy surprise with how attracted she is to him.

Stowe is feeling stuck in a rut. He decides to visit his sister in the USA and is excited when he lays eyes on her delectable cooking show host of a boss.

They both feel the attraction, but should they take a chance to find out if this is what they've been needing to spice up their lives?

I suggest you read and find out.

Overall, I found it interesting and quick to read. I would recommend it to anyone who likes sexy ranch reads and I may just have to look into the rest of this series.
