    "This is a good book that keeps you interested. I enjoyed the plot and how Chessa was rescued from her kidnappers. This is a good adult historical romance, I would not put this in the young adults category. "

    "This is one stunner of a kidnap story! In all honesty, it is really more of a romance. The kidnapping of the physician is a plot device more than a focus point. I sure enjoyed the book though even though it wasn't an intense kidnap thriller like Taken."

    "This book just wasn't for me. Panic has a weird storyline and just couldn't hold my attention. It's about a panic game and how love comes into it. I didn't really enjoy it, I actually fell asleep while reading it."
