Nice ride!

Lexie traveled in Texas’ roads only because her best friend asked to accommodate her to the meeting party with a boyfriend. But as for Lexie, she never liked this-new guy, and her sixth gut sense never let her down. Her frustration multiplied when the rain started, and she was definitely lost in this unfamiliar location. With a water down-pour, she couldn’t see where she was, but when she turned to a different road fork, she found a cow right in front of her vehicle too late to stop. As for her “good luck” streak, the car smashed in to the animal and she couldn’t start it…The problems went on! She lost her cell phone in the mud, when she tried to move the cow…But then she saw a new born baby calf who was sinking in the mud… She tried to pull it out, but only sank herself… She knew she was a goner until two riders came to her rescue. After that a fever took over, and she lost her consciousness, until later she woke up in a hospital with a new name…. MRS. Ross! And yet she was never married before.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Melinda convinces her roommate and friend, Alexandra, to travel and meet her and her online boyfriend, David, for dinner. Alexandra is a smart 24 year old and has a good sense of people and a short fuse. She does not like David and cannot seem to convince Melinda that something is wrong with him. She receives horrible directions, via the creepy David, gets lost, and is missing after a flash flood nearly claims her life. She is rescued by Cutter and take to ICU.

A terrific story of Alexandra trying to still find her place in life. Melinda comes from money, but Alexandra is working her way into a career while still trying to care for her friend in her bad choices. Alexandra and Cutter have great chemistry, but we seem to be missing information about Cutter’s past that makes him so hesitant to Alexandra’s questions. I hope these are answered in the second book. A fast paced read leaving you wanting to know more.

I was given a copy of this book from LibraryThing for an honest review

This story is about two friends Melinda and Alexandra or Lexi to her friends. After graduating from an Ohio college, they set off on a trip to meet a young man who Melinda has been having an online relationship with.
David Decker has convinced Melinda to meet him in Lubbock , Texas. Melinda's parents convince her to take Lexi along on the trip so she won't be alone when she finally meets David .

As they reach Lubbock, David picks up Melinda to take her to his ranch, while Lexi is stuck driving Melinda's car. David is not to be trusted but neither girl realize the trouble that looms ahead for each of them. Lexi is given directions to the ranch , but David has cleverly given her the wrong way to go. Lexi finds herself in a rainstorm where it is hard to see. Before she knows it , she is off in a muddy ditch with clothes so wet they stick to her skin. Who is the man that saves her from drowning ? Will she be able to trust him ?

Melinda soon realizes she has made a very tragic mistake coming to meet David. She comes from a very wealthy family and David's plan was to lure her to his ranch in order to hold her for ransome. When she realizes this she is devastated and wonders why she was so trusting of a man she really didn't know.

Both young women will have many obstacles to overcome. The author does a good job of developing the characters and shows us that even though they face hard decisions they find strength to fight. It is a story that takes each young woman in different directions and introduces them to unexpected twists and turns in their seemingly safe world.

To find out if Melinda is rescued and if Lexi can adapt to her new environment you need to read this page turner to find out. This book reminds me of a romantic suspense novel in the old west days where people work hard , while some try to find an easier way to survive by being deceitful. It's a great read filled with people from different backgrounds who struggle to run a ranch, and opens the women to a culture they have never experienced.
