      Heartwarming sweet read. Loved Dax McCall & Amber and the whole McCall family. This would have been 5 stars read for me if we could have seen the reunion between Amber and her estranged father and/or had an epilogue.*Thanks to Karla for the recommendation, totally enjoyed it. You know me too well my friend!! :)

      Dax McCall is a fire inspector and stops to check out one of his properties. Meanwhile, Amber Riggs is a Real Estate agent checking out the property for a potential client. Both are stranded in the building as an earthquake traps them inside. One year later they meet againOne of those secret baby themes but it is one I don't mind and I quite enjoyed the story. Got a little sugary sweet at times but not too much to ruin the story.

      Just what I needed. This is light and sweet and doesn't try to be what it's not. No wonder I love Jill Shavis so much - she does this right!

    • RLA says:

      The heroine Amber is looking around a property she is trying to sell when an earthquake hits, lucky for her Fire Inspector Dax, the hero, is also in the building. When the building starts to fall down around them he helps keep her safe and calm while they are trapped. Both of them believe there is no chance of them getting out alive, one thing leads to another and they end up making love. They do manage to get out when they are rescued, Dax tries to see Amber again but Amber, embarrassed by her [...]

      I wanted to read something that was light, easy and romantic, so when I came across a Jill Shalvis book I couldn't help myself. This was the perfect escapist read and it ticked all the right boxes for a romance/Harlequin book.The male protagonist, Dax, was irresistible: gorgeous, decent guy with principles, loving dad, and willing to do whatever necessary to conquer our heroine. I mean where else would you find such a guy, but in romance novels. I don't care much for bad guys, and Dax sure isn't [...]

    • Lyndi says:

      Amber Riggs is a horrible, horrible person.I got a good ways through this book and I want to punch myself in the face for putting myself through that. I was hoping she would redeem herself, but 60% of the way through, we hadn't had a single character development aside from pregnancy. And I don't really think that counts.I won't give a rating to a book I DNF because I'm just not into the story. For me to give 1 star to a book I didn't finish, there has to be something that I absolutely hated and [...]

    • Norma says:

      3 1/2 stars. This was a light, fun read. Dax is a dream worthy hero! I love a hero who is passionate about all of his feelings and expresses himself as such. Amber left a little to be desired, but I accepted her faults.Over all, I'd recommend this book. It's my first by Ms. Shalvis, but I don't think it'll be my last.

    • Jay says:

      I've read around 7 books written by Jill Shalvis (mainly from her Lucky Harbour series) and I usually rate them 4 stars. I like her writing style plus her characters improve with each book, but Aftershock is one of her earlier works and, unfortunately, it shows.Two random people got trapped under a house after a 6.5 earthquake and decided to "cling to each other for hope". It was as cheesy as it sounds. Then they got rescued, she practically ran away, a year later they meet again and surprise su [...]

    • Andrea Mudd says:

      Really terrible book. I was excited to see Jill Shalvis had a book come out this past summer that I missed. We'll, it must have been a rerelease of an early book. It was awful. Must worse than those new romance authors that you can read for free. Jill Shalvis, I want my money back! The main character was so one sided that she came across as the horribly selfish and the guy came across as a saint. And their names? Amber and Dax? Horrible names.

    • Carrie says:

      2* means it was okay, and that's what it was: okay. I generally enjoy Jill Shalvis, but this was obviously an early work, short and not well fleshed out. Plus, I hate the whole "secret baby/keep child away from father" thing. Hate it!

    • Jennie says:

      Another great book by Jill Shalvis. Amber and Dax are caught in a empty warehouse when a 6.5 earthquake happens. They think that they are going to die during the aftershocks. A year later, Amber is taking her three month old daughter in for a check-up when she sees Dax again. Dax is there with one of his sisters, and goes to talk to Amber. That is when he discovers the baby is his.

    • Rachel Kingree says:

      Fluff - but not as good of character development as I would have wanted. Underwhelming

    • Marilyn Slusher says:

      A feel good read!!

    • Nakeesha says:

      The beginning of this book sucked me in and the stakes that got raised by the third chapter kept me turning the pages. But then things started to fall apart for me and I've figured out whyThe premise of this book is a charming fire inspector, Dax, and an uptight real estate agent, Amber, get trapped in a dilapidated building during an earthquake. During those few hours of near death experiences they give into temptation and have coitus (I've been watching too much Big Bang Theory!). Afterwards, [...]

    • Laci says:

      What would you do if you were trapped in a building that was collapsing from a earthquake?? I honestly have no idea. I would be scared out of my mind I know that. Well that is exactly what happened to Amber and Dax. You see Dax is a fire inspector for the local fire department and Amber is a realtor. Two people that you never thought would be getting together. But it seems in most of this genre of book that is how it happens. Any way Dax is sent to look at an abandon building far out of town and [...]

    • Michelle says:

      Another great read from Jill Shalvis. This was an older title that had recently been republished and I just loved it! It had a lot of the tropes that I just love in romance reads. There was a close proximity relationship, there was a secret baby, and a firefighter! Can’t really go wrong with any of those. Real estate agent Amber and fire inspector Dax find themselves trapped after a strong earthquake. They share a very special moment before rescue which changes their lives drastically. A year [...]

    • Emily (Mrs B's Books) says:

      The first part of this book that focused on both Dax and Amber before they were rescued from the crumbling building were good. We had a very protective Dax, keeping Amber safe and helping to keep her calm even as aftershocks kept bringing more of the building down over their heads.The second part, well, it needed a bit more character development.Dax was a wonderfully sweet and sensitive man who really wore his heart on his sleeve and had a very tender side. Amber on the other hand was cold and s [...]

    • Margaret says:

      When an earthquake happens, two strangers find themselves huddled beneath a desk and, faced with the uncertainty of surviving, succumb to some life-affirming passion. When fate brings them back together again, along with the product of their passion, Amber and Dax are forced to confront their issues and deal with the aftershocks of their affair.This was a good read. There was lots of tension, a bit of heat, and a sexy firefighter. Dax was a great character and I loved his family. Amber had lots [...]

    • Barb says:

      If it hadn't been for the earthquake, Amber Riggs would never have made love to a perfect stranger. And no doubt about it, fire inspector Dax McCall was perfect. Who else could have taught her the meaning of passion at a time like that? Still, when Amber ran into him a year later she wasn't sure how he'd react. To her…or their three-month-old baby. She hadn't meant to keep the news from Dax, but he'd been out of town, and she'd been sort of relieved. After all, how do you tell the perfect man [...]

    • Judith says:

      Earthquakes are a way of life for those of us who have lived in So. California for years. So I was immediately "at home" with the trauma and upset that such an occurrence could cause. That Dax and Amber found each other in that setting did not surprise me at all. Thus the story was a realistic outgrowth of circumstances that many of us have come to recognize and understand. It was especially interesting to see Amber work through the early "training" she received from her "emotionally unavailable [...]

    • Sarah says:

      Amber and Dax meet during and Earth Quake where they are trapped together under a desk, and have hot 'were probably going to die so lets enjoy this' sex. once they are rescued Amber takes off when Dax is giving his report to the police with every intention of contacting him later. One year and no contact later Amber and Dax run in to each other at the pediatrician where Amber is taking there daughter Taylor to have a check up. Emotions fly as Amber try's to work past her childhood insecurities a [...]

    • babyfishmouth says:

      2.5 starsThis was just okay. I would have enjoyed it more if the heroine Amber hadn't been such a one-dimensional character. Given her complete lack of friends and family, I found it hard to believe she could have a successful real estate career. That career demands social contacts and networking and Amber seemed to have none of that. She was closed off and distant. And taking an entire year off to go live in Mexico and then jumping right back into her job? Ridiculous.I never understood what the [...]

    • SweetSue says:

      Very sweet story. Dax was very sure of himself and very patient with Amber. The scene where he sees the baby for the first time was well done. I usually don't like secret baby stories, but this one made more sense than usual - they did not know each other at all and she had a pretty nasty father role-model to get past. In contrast,I loved how his family was nosy and intrusive in a loving, non-annoying way (Except for the one conversation where his mother gets her feelings hurt. That seemed dumb [...]

    • Elle says:

      This is such a "Harlequin Temptation". They really do have a particular flavour to the stories in this line, and I can't say I'm really enthused about the stories in this line.I read this because I am eagerly awaiting the next addition to Lucky Habor (book #3) and was hoping it would have the same flavour. I really can identify Jill Shalvis in this writing, but that's at war with the Harlequin Temptation flavour. So in the end this felt like it should have been a short story but was stretched ou [...]

    • Teacher1209 says:

      This was a pretty good book, Dax and Amber met in a very unconventional way, the result of which was a quick round of hot sex because they thought they were going to die, they did not. A year later they run into each other at the hospital and he finds out they have a 'souvenir' from their near death experience, a 3 month girl named Taylor. Amber fights Dax about being together because of trust issues her father caused. In the end she realizes she loves Dax just as he loves her. The thing I found [...]

    • Serena says:

      2.5The part where H/h met and had their fling while stuck under the rubbles during the earthquake was 4-stars. The sex scene was really atmospheric and sexy. Up to when they met again and H realized that he's a father was 3-stars. After that the book became 2-stars - the mutual denial while H/h flirted with each other was dragged out way too long. After he told her he loved her and took her to see his family, there was just no single reason she should continue to distrust him while being totally [...]

    • Mem says:

      Caught in a building that crashes during an earthquake, Amber Riggs and Dax McCall survive. In the passion of the moment, they celebrate being alive. Dax tries to find her, but Amber has fled. Her father's opinions of women and their so called bad behavior have marked her life. Dax and Amber accidentally meet at a doctors office. He is there with his pregnant sister and sees Amber with a baby. His 3 month old baby girl, Taylor. Trust is a major issue of Amber, her mother left and her father has [...]

    • Karla Brandenburg says:

      Jill Shalvis has the uncanny ability to dig deep into the emotions of damaged characters and take you along for the ride. Aftershock was an emotional roller coaster, from the beginning where the characters face their mortality to the aftermath, when they realize they've stumbled onto something much bigger than a moment of impulse. As always, Ms. Shalvis delivers a heart-wrenching, soul-baring, emotion-jerking story that leaves you yearning for "the perfect man" who can see past the damaged facad [...]

    • Kristin says:

      I hate to shelve things as DNF but this one I'm putting down for now and pretty much know that I'm not going to pick it back up. It wasn't absolutely terribleI just couldn't get into the characters or story. I should have figured from the book blurb that this was going to be cheesy but I thought I'd be able to get over it. The idea of two strangers meeting while locked in a basement during an earthquake, thinking they're going to die and not be rescued, yet still having sex during the earthquake [...]
