Description

A "fast paced romantic thriller" about two earthquake survivors who team up and fall in love is a "twisty roller-coaster ride [that] keeps pages turning" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
As an emergency paramedic, Lauren Boyer is dedicated and highly capable. Until an earthquake strikes, trapping her beneath the freeway with a group of strangers—including Iraq war veteran Garrett Wright.
Handsome and take-charge Garrett aids Lauren in her rescue efforts, even as the steely look in his eyes seems to hide dark secrets. When a gang of escaped convicts goes on the attack, Garrett's bravery makes him more than a courageous bystander to Lauren. If they can save the others before time runs out, maybe, just maybe, they can explore the fire igniting between them—if the truth about who he really is doesn't pull them apart forever. . . .
"As the survivors fight for their lives, Sorenson describes everything in stunning detail to create a riveting romantic adventure." —Booklist

        Starred review from November 5, 2012
        Sorenson (The Edge of Night) fuels this fast-paced romantic thriller with nonstop adrenaline. Paramedic Lauren Boyer is headed to an emergency call when an 8.5-magnitude earthquake hits San Diego, killing her partner and trapping her and others underneath a collapsed freeway. As Lauren hunts for survivors, she meets up with Iraq war veteran Garrett Wright. The two rescue a pregnant teenager from a burning car before finding an unscathed older man and his young granddaughter. As Lauren desperately tries to save the wounded, she learns that three escaped felons are among those trapped beneath the freeway. The situation quickly becomes dire as the criminals demand the lion's share of food, water, and morphine. In the midst of chaos, Lauren falls hard for Garrett—but he's hiding a huge secret that could not only destroy their happiness but cost them their lives. This twisty roller-coaster ride keeps the pages turning. Agent: Laurie McLean, Larsen/Pomada Literary Agents.

        December 1, 2012
        After EMT Lauren Boyer's partner is killed in their ambulance when a freeway falls during an 8.5 earthquake in San Diego, she, hulky former U.S. Marine Garrett, a pregnant woman, a grandfather, his granddaughter, and two severely injured people set up base in the area around the severed ambulance and the cab of a semi. Through aftershocks, they hunker down in their little caved-in area, fighting off a gang of three prison inmates while trying to come up with an escape or rescue plan. Like a season of Survivor, they must battle problems both large and small: the convicts squander their liquids, then attack to get more, wounding the grandfather; the pregnant girl goes into labor; one of the injured dies, while the other wakes with no memory. As Lauren and Garrett work to keep everyone healthy and calm, even as setbacks develop, they bond. But will what feels like love now last after they are rescued? As the survivors fight for their lives, Sorenson describes everything in stunning detail to create a riveting romantic adventure.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2012, American Library Association.)
