Review: Rope ‘Em  (Giddyup #2) by Delphine Dryden

Returning home to help out with his brother’s dude ranch is cool with Ethan. After all, he’s as comfortable in the saddle as he is roping a calf. But what’s really jangling his spurs is a chance to indulge his kink in the ranch’s monthly Giddyup event. Did someone say suspension bondage? Yee-Haw!

When Victoria realizes her family’s number one goal in sending her to college is to get her hitched to a husband, she drops out one semester shy of graduation. But paying her own way turns out to be the hardest lesson of all. Thankfully she’s found her way to the Hilltop Ranch. A place to get away and refocus. And get herself all tied up . . .

Sure, Ethan’s pretty handy with that length of rope. But it turns out the expensive design school wasn’t a total waste for Victoria. Bringing an “academic” approach to their play—and Ethan’s hobby—is opening up new possibilities. Like maybe the chemistry between them is something more than a game . . .

Victoria overhears her father lamenting about the amount of money he spends on her education.  He goes on to say he expected her to be trolling for a husband instead of going after some useless degree in design.  Victoria is upset and vows to break away from her family’s money. She withdraws from college, gets a new affordable living space, and gets herself a new job.  But after an altercation at work, she quits and heads back home asking her sister for help.

Her sister does help by getting her a job at Hilltop Ranch doing everything from mucking stalls to baking cookies.  She finds she needed a place like this, especially when she finds out they do monthly kinky events! When Ethan is assigned to show her the ropes around the ranch, she’s not prepared for how he makes her feel. When she learns about his rope and bondage fetish, she knows she wants to keep on exploring him some more!

Ethan is a vet, but in between work places by choice.  He is building a tiny house with hopes of spanning the country and selling his handmade rope. He makes harnesses for horses and sells his rope to fetish lovers at the monthly kinky weekends.  It’s a hobby but it truly seems to be the thing he enjoys the most. When he’s introduced to Victoria, he believes he’s never met anyone more beautiful than her. He’s asked to show her what to do on the ranch.  She’s a quick learner, but she’s never cleaned a toilet before??? He jumps to an assumption that was very off its mark.

I really enjoyed reading Rope Em’!  Victoria and Ethan’s romance just kind of happened and I loved how it evolved.  They end up having a lot in common which surprised them both.  I also liked that Victoria’s education was very strong and she knew her stuff! I really liked both characters and felt I could be friends easily with them! The tiny house angle fit well! All in all it was a fun, quick book with just the right amount of sizzle!  Grab this one today and get a little kink on!
