Aftershock by Jill Sorenson


It's full of drama,action and scary. The reason its scary is it could happen anywhere anytime. Thier is also romance,heroes and bad guys. Lots of love scenes too.
When I had read the back of the book I wondered how thier could be so much when they were stuck under the freeway after a earthquake. But thier is a big area that is blocked by the 8.5 earthquake interchange in CA.
Lauren Boyer is a emergency paramedic and her partner are on the freeway when the earthquake began parts of the freeway fell. Then a big aftershock came more freeway rose and crashed and her partner was killed.
Thier was alot of death,mangled cars,fires. Lauren hears a voice asking in anyone is alive. Garrett Wright is former Irag veteran. He helps Lauren grab first aid supplies and they look for other survivors.
One of the first they find is Penny a pregnant teenager trapped in the car. Her Aunt did not make it. Penny's baby is due in two weeks.
They find a RV with grandfather Donald Creswell and his grandaughter Cadence. He has some food and water.
Thier is a guy who is in a coma, a women who is badly hurt. They find other supplies in some cars. They find two guys in the back of a pickup drinking beer along with a 3 guy who is hurt.
They stack the dead bodies in a corner covering with a tarp. That night Lauren is asleep when someone attacks her and tries to rape her. Lauren makes enough sound that Garret hears her and is beating the guy up and another guy has a gun and threatens to shoot Lauren if Garret does not let him up.
Garrett feels guilty that Lauren got hurt. He feels he should have told her that they were prisoners that escaped prison van.
That makes two groups and the prisoners have a gun and are not afraid to use it. They can't get out and all the different cell phones they found don't have service.
Thier is a lot tension and short supplies are a big worry. I did not want to put down the book till I was finshed.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest reviews from Netgalley.
