Blurb: Derek Warden is certain his boss sent him to cover the conference in the middle of nowhere, Alaska, to punish him for something. After an unpleasant phone call from his father who tries to stop him from going, Derek is ready for the whole thing to be over before it even begins.

Hayden Shaw has been looking forward to this conference for months. The problem of fracking is very dear to his heart and he couldn’t wait to spend the long weekend with like-minded people.
Neither of them expected the big earthquake, but most importantly – they didn’t expect each other.

Meeting again after over a decade may result in something even more surprising that the ground trembling under their feet.

Review: When a powerful senators son and an environmentalist meet in college sparks flew and not the good kind. Whenever Derek and Haydon were together they argued, then one day things seemed different when Derek agreed to cover a story for the school paper,

Then for some unknown reason to Hayden Derek buried the story and their feelings as well..12 years later the sparks are still there.

This story had a great premise as a second chance story. I was a bit disappointed to find out that their meeting in college wasn’t romantic. Where the story had lots of good points I would have liked more focus on the Earthquake. Also it was mentioned a few times that Derek once was a fireman he had a scar but then nothing was told as to what happened.

It is a good story with a quick pace. I wanted to keep reading to see if Derek and Hayden got together and what their backstory was. The paragraph of their first kiss had me weak in the knees.

If you like stories about Natural disasters, Earthquakes, reporters, environmentalists and a pretty sweet romance with some moderate man-sex this is for you.
