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….

Please Audible, more Jill Sorenson! I read this book in hard copy and was very excited to see it on audible. Worth a credit.
I am a huge Jill Sorenson fan and have read all her other books so was very excited when I found this one as an Audible offering. It wasn't her best, however. The action takes place almost entirely inside a concrete structure created after an earthquake. Maybe due to the lack of external stimulus the story is quite slow and revolves entirely around the survivors trying to find a way to escape, at the same time dealing with the threat posed by some escaped convicts. It reminded me in part of one of the earlier (albeit better) episodes of Lost.
The narrator reads very deliberately and doesn't really ratchet up the tension much, adding to the so-so element of this book.
Not a bad listen but a bit disappointing.
