I tried not to look at the men so that I could focus on keeping my movements silent. I certainly did not want to be detected. It was impossible, however, to keep my eyes completely off the terrifying drama unfolding before me. I was certain they planned to kill the man, and I had no way of helping him. The best I could do was get to safety and call the police. I had slunk my way to the left of them and was right alongside the river now. I crept along keeping a wary eye on the men. I don't know whether I gasped, screamed, or made a sudden movement, but suddenly both sets of eyes of the evil men turned towards me just as the shot sounded. I ran as fast as I could, ignoring the ripping pain in my side, and jumped off the edge into the rushing water below.

This is a story about Jordan and Lela who are attracted to each other. This books shows us so well how different men and women think. It reminds us to communicate with others so there are no misunderstanding, not only in friendship but with those we love. I found this book to be interesting, A good entertaining audiobook.
"Thrilling mystery romance!"
This thrilling mystery romance had me guessing what was happening at every turn. It opens with Lela waking up confused, in pain, and overhearing a strange conversation about her and how she saved someone on her walk in the woods. As Lela wakes up, two people she didn't know, Daisy and Jordan, explain to her what had happened. Things are said by not only them but by Lela that have you question what the meaning is behind what isn't being said. A few days later Lela is able to return to work only to find out she is being sent to work at Alexander Ranch where she again meets Daisy, Jordan and others. Lela enjoys working there and likes the new friends she makes. But as strange events happen, is Lela really safe there? Will the chemistry she feels around Jordan keep her heart safe as well? This is a fast paced mystery about who might be after Lela, about strange powers Lela and others may possess, and the confusing attraction between Jordan and Lela. The narrator, Jaime Lamchick did a great job drawing me into each scene and her inflections were spot on as well as her voice changes for each character. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in this series and find out what happens next.
"Alexander Ranch book1"
This was a fun story. Lots of action, mystery, a little paranormal (which I loved) and some serious sexual tension. I am looking forward to book 2 to continue the mystery! I love listening to audio it brings these stories to life! I could so see the river scene playing out. And I love the voice of the narrator.
"Love this story!"
Great story of a young women who happens upon a frightening scene in the forest, putting her life in danger. She finds safety with the Alexander's but they may be hiding something from her that puts her in more danger. The narrator does a great job reading the story and the author leaves you wanting more. Can't wait to listen to the next book!
Yes, I would and will. I am sure I miss some things when I first listen to a story as my mind sometimes wanders. However, this is an excellent book by a wonderfully new-to-me author. That in itself will ensure I listen to it again.
The mystery involved in everyone's powers. I want to learn more about them and hope it will be expanded upon in future books!
The scene in the barn when Jordan saved Layla and we first got a sense of the power this group holds.
The beginning of the book when Jordan rescued Kayla. I loved reading how she came to trust him to keep her safe from the bad guys.
I highly recommend this book. The narration is wonderful and the intonations are great. I can't wait to listen to the next book.
"In The Wrong Place At The Right Time"
Probably :) It was a really fun listen and I really like the series so far. There are more books coming out (not soon enough) and I will most likely relisten before the new book when it comes out!
My favorite character was Jordan because he is so conflicted and yet so sure of himself. The contradictions made him a very interesting character. He knows he must protect Lela no matter what and yet her fears he might hurt her. The inner struggle was amazing!
In the cabin when the bad guys show up!
Yes! But I was unable to because it was too long. It kept me riveted though from beginning to end.
This series must be listened to (or read)in order. This is the first book. I can't wait to listen to Into Thin Air!
Lela has a special gift that she keeps secret from everyone (even her big brother who she lives with) ... She can feel other people's emotions and intentions and even sometimes read their inner thoughts. When she is out for some fun in the sun hiking she accidentally stumbles on three men... Two have guns and are threatening another on his knees. When one of them shoots, she gasps and turns to run away. They shoot at her and she jumps into the river allowing the current to take her away. When she emerges she sees a strange man sitting at the river bank. Is she saved? Or is he another of the men she just escaped? Will he help her?
Jordan feels drawn to the woman who so mysteriously appeared before him out of thin air. He only knows he must help her! He takes her back to the cabin and tends to her injuries the best he can. What makes her so important to him? Will he be able to help her? Or will he accidentally harm her? Where did she come from? How was she shot?
A heroine not interested in love and completely out of her depth meets a reluctant hero who doubts his ability not to be a villain in this quirky paranormal series filled with many other strong characters and lots of secrets!
***This series is suitable for adult readers who enjoy paranormal mystery action adventures with lots of intrigue and a bit of reluctant romance :)
"Thrilling book! Great Character Narration!"
I really enjoyed listening to the narration of this thrilling book. The characters really came to life! A lot of great paranormal creativity for those who enjoyed the "Twilight" series.
"I liked this story"
very well done and you could hear the different characters voices
since the audio was good the book is a must to read
"Loved this book! Can't wait for the next one!"
Just finished listening to Alexander Ranch and loved it! After reading some of the reviews, I thought that I might want to wait until all 3 of the books were out because some of the reviewers said it was a cliffhanger. ( I really like to wait and read them all together!) But it really wasn't. Yes, I wanted to see where the relationship went, but the story line ended. The mystery was solved. Now I can't wait to see what happens with Lela and Jordan and the other characters in the book. I especially liked that the characters were "special." Just a touch of the paranormal. This story was fast paced and kept me listening. Also the narrator was really good and very easy to listen to. I look forward to listening to the next 2 books in the series.
"I really enjoyed this book."
Yes because the narrator did such a great job of bringing the characters to life.
When Layla discoved she could resist the power of a drainer with her own abilities. Because this would eventually open the door to a relationship between her and Jordan.
This is the first time to listen to her and I would definately listen to further books she narrates.
No extreme reactions. I just really enjoyed this book from start to finish.
I look forward to book 2.
