Norma’s review

Whoa!  Edgy, chilling & engrossing stuff here!

NO EXIT by TAYLOR ADAMS is a highly entertaining, riveting and action-packed thrill ride that was quite the tense psychological thriller.  The storyline and the chilling setting of this tale immediately drew me in and held taut right to the very end. I found that the storyline was so darn nightmarishly exciting that literally had my heart racing and kept me on the edge of my seat making this one totally immersive read.  

TAYLOR ADAMS delivers a rapid-paced, suspenseful, gripping, well-written and perfectly executed read here that was such a vivid portrayal that I thought I was actually watching a thriller movie unfold rather than just reading it.  That is pretty good storytelling to be able to totally immerse me in every little scary vivid detail as I am definitely not a visual reader.

This was pretty much the perfect thriller for me and one that totally blew me away.  Yup landing into my favourite reads shelf!

Brenda’s review

Colorado blizzard, stranded travelers, an isolated rest stop, a kidnapped child, a cat and mouse game between a young woman and a terrifying psychopath

No Exit is one of my favorite type of thriller.  A thrilling fast-past, climatic, heart-pounding game of cat and mouse between two strong and very different characters who try to outwit each other.  I even joined in on this cat and mouse game by yelling at the characters and rooting here for our young brave heroine who gives it her all to outwit a psychopath.

No Exit had me turning those pages as fast as I could.  It’s intensely gripping right up to that climatic and emotional ending.  There are some terrifying twists and turns that did get a bit graphic at times.  We were feeling things were getting pretty intense here with some of those scenes and might not be able to the same way about a certain thing used in this story without thinking about this story.  Taylor Adams sure knows how to play that shock effect well here. We might even be thinking twice about stopping at any rest/visitors centers again. And I am going to stick to my “if it’s snowing I am not going rule.

A look into our discussion

Loved this!!! I was on the edge of my seat for most of it….I actually had to put it down a time or 2 because it was stressing me out!! I loved Darby & her resourcefulness & grit. She was amazing. This was one of the best thrillers I’ve read in a long time! Beth

It was fast-paced, exciting and kept my attention! The twists were unpredictable and Darby was bright and amusing. Loved it! JuJu

What a crazy ride! I am not a fan of rest stops to begin with, so this has further deterred me from stopping at one! Nikki

Wowzers! The anxiety and nail bitting twists up until the very end was entertaining. I couldn’t put this down. I loved the twist and turns Jennifer

Definitely a fast paced read and super creepy. I did not see the reveals coming Great ending! Carolyn
