- "A fantastic romantic suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat, made me laugh, and tightened my chest. There's a few twists and turns, and one really big one that I completely didn't see coming. I love it when an author can surprise me like that." - Christine Rains, author
- "Chrys Fey's 30 Seconds Before is the prequel to 30 Seconds and is a heart-racing read. It is a thrilling episode that ends with a bang! Blake Herro is a heroic character with a lot of guts. He faces his deadliest enemy with fearless courage, determined to bring him down, no matter what it takes." - Readers' Favorite

From the Author
Secret Number Two: My love for Thirty Seconds to Mars runs deep, so deep that I even used the first name of the front man, Jared Leto, for one of my characters. I won't reveal which character because that's another secret, but look for a variation of the spelling.
Secret Number Three: My heroine, Dani Hart, has a fear of being in a car accident. This fear stemmed from my own fear that was so fierce that I hadn't even owned my driver's license when I wrote this story!
Secret Number Four: I slipped in a reference to my unpublished romantic-suspense featuring Avrianna Heavenborn from Ghost of Death.
Secret Number Five: At one point, Dani is watching General Hospital. The episode she's watching is based on one I saw a few years ago when Dante is racing to save Lulu from Franco's trap.
Secret Number Six: I set 30 Seconds in Cleveland, Ohio after I took a trip to Michigan and had a layover in the Cleveland airport. I didn't get to explore the city, but the bitter cold that cut through me straight to the marrow in my bones made a big impact. It was after I was back in Florida when I thought of the opening scene of 30 Seconds.
