Aftershock by Jill Sorenson

Book Review

Jill Sorenson’s 2013 novel Aftershock is an intense adventure into human nature. What makes some people heroic and others villains? When faced with the destruction and danger of a major earthquake, Garrett and Lauren unite to save a small group of survivors trapped in a collapsed freeway. Fighting dangerous conditions and a gang of convicts, as well as the attraction that pulls them together like a force of nature, Garrett and Lauren are willing to sacrifice even their own safety to rescue those depending on them.
Amid the worst conditions a person’s true character rises to the surface. Honed by danger, commitment and honor, this band of misfits unites for survival, discovering their own strengths and weaknesses along the way.
Discovering the truth about yourself is more frightening than finding out the people you trust aren’t exactly what you expect them to be. Can Lauren and Garrett’s fragile connection withstand the shock of returning to their real lives?
This story is one of the most exciting romances I’ve ever read, the real-life drama and the surreal world beneath the freeway are a great stage for this amazing love story.
