Reviews for the Panther Player Series
"The author is skillful, delightful, and deft in her telling of the 'push me-pull you' tale. I enjoyed the story throughout, despite being exasperated. The alternating POV chapters helped, displaying the frustrations and feelings roiling within each protagonist." - PJ Colando
