๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
Stranded at a Colorado rest stop with a would-be child kidnapper...in a hella snow storm.  Turns out this makes for a crazy suspenseful story.  With so many twists and turns, it made for an un-stoppable listen.  Sadly, though...for me...I felt like it just went on and on, and I started to lose interest in the MC's struggle to survive.  So much so that I had to rewind and re-listen to the last part of the story to see how it all played out.  I mean, ultimately, I was still invested in the overall story.  I do, however, believe that this could make for an excellent movie.

NO EXIT BY: TAYLOR ADAMS
NO EXIT a gripping thriller full of heart-stopping twists - William Taylor Adams

A truly chilling page-turner! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time with this gritty thriller. LOVED IT! This book surprised me. I love the way Darby evolved in a deliciously dark knight kind of way. She was undoubtedly a hero, but she also had to become a monster, in a sense, to fight against the real monster. Some twists I saw coming, but it didn't make them any less awesome, and others blindsided me in the best way. Highly recommend this one to fans of thrills and chills.

Chilling Read!
NO EXIT a gripping thriller full of heart-stopping twists - William Taylor Adams

No Exit by Taylor Adams manages to move at breakneck speed, even though its action takes place in an enclosed setting over the course of twelve hours.  It is almost Christmas Eve, and Darby Thorne is reluctantly travelling home from college through the Rocky Mountains after learning that her mother’s death from cancer may be imminent.  A winter storm interrupts her journey and forces her to seek refuge at a remote rest area already encased in snow. There are a few other stranded motorists already waiting out the weather in the visitor’s center, and Darby figures that she will be in for a tedious wait before the plow trucks clear the way.  When she ventures outside to try to get a phone signal, however, she happens upon a disturbing sight that sets off a shocking chain of events. Thrust into the role of heroine, Darby needs to take make vital decisions about who to trust and take some immediate action that will challenge her physically and mentally for the rest of the night.  Adams does an admirable job portraying an average person placed under extreme circumstances.  Can mental agility and strong moral determination triumph over brute force and callously evil intentions?  A combination between a “Locked Door” and a “Ticking Clock” mystery, No Exit relentlessly ratchets up the tension and uses unpredictable plot twists to maintain its momentum. The reader can feel the claustrophobic chill as the evening grows darker and increasingly more sinister. This novel would captivate thriller fans and those who enjoy a story involving a deadly game of cat-and-mouse.

No Exit
NO EXIT a gripping thriller full of heart-stopping twists - William Taylor Adams

Darby Thorne is an art student at CU-Boulder. It's almost Christmas. She's on her way to visit her sick mother but a blizzard has stranded her at a desolate highway rest stop. While outside looking for a signal, Darby happens to notice a little girl locked up in the back of a van. Now she has to go back into the building and try to figure out which one of the strangers could be the kidnapper. And she has to figure out how she's going to save the little girl when there is no cell phone reception, no working telephone and nowhere else to go.

This book was intense. It gripped me from page one and did not let go until the very last page. I could not get enough. There was no shortage of twists and turns. There were characters written to make you either love or hate them and it was all very well done. I loved it!

Thank you to Netgalley and Joffe Books for a copy of this book.

EYESHOT: The most gripping suspense thriller you will ever read - Taylor Adams

Ever wish you hadn't decided to go there/do that? This is probably what Elle and James thought when they find themselves in the Mojave desert with a sniper shooting at them, their vehicle and anything else which might be of use. They should have driven past that "two horse town!" I loved this book. It has plenty of thrills and "how are they going to get out of that" moments. Interesting twists in the plot too which kept me gripped. Wonder what the author will come up with next??
