On a day that begins like any other, a violent earthquake strikes Los Angeles, plunging the region into chaos. Two strangers, trapped in a collapsed shopping mall, find each other amid the rubble and join forces to escape. Hampered by injury and darkness, they dig and claw their way through one crumbled store after another, emerging long after most have given up hope for survivors. The ordeal leaves both women shaken, but their shared triumph sets them on a life-changing course together, igniting a connection like neither has ever known. Anna Kaklis--whose perfectly planned life never included falling in love with another woman--is thrown for a loop, but she doesn't doubt her heart. Lily Stewart--abandoned too many times by people she trusted--won't let herself believe that Anna's love will endure. Without Warning is the story of their courageous journey through adversity, and their promise of steadfast love.… (mer)

I broke down and bought the 4 book bundle with the entire series. Still love Anna & Lily!

***finished a reread and it's still one of my absolute favorites. The chemistry and humor are just great. ***

7/17/14 - need an old favorite to listen to while working. I pick this one!

1/25/16 - been reading lots already this year and been jonesing for a few old favorites. This one tops my list for this time around. Started it tonight. Going to try to stop after this one instead of reading the whole series so I can read a few other faves. ( )

Yep, still love this book. Anna and Lily are likely my very favorite lesfic couple of all time. The story is filled with humor, the leads have great chemistry, and, even though there are some typos, it's pretty impossible for me to be anything but completely engrossed in the story. And that really says something after the countless times I've read it.

I love this book. Did I mention that?

**11/2017 reread. Missed Anna & Lily. Love them. Love this book.

**12/10/20 reread. Stopping with the first one. Think I'll do a reread of [b:Just This Once|747254|Just This Once|K.G. MacGregor|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1359157048l/747254._SY75_.jpg|733397] because now I'm in the mood. ( )

An ok read. Rather predictable and formulaic, however I did enjoy the escape from the collapsed building. Those scenes were written smoothly and were easy to follow, the author handled descriptions that would normally be illustrated by sight quite well using descriptions of touch and deductive reasoning.

After the escape from the collapsed building episode, the book switches to one of the usual formulas, i.e: girl meets girl, she's straight don't do it!, she couldn't love me, maybe she feels the same, should I, shouldn't I, confusion, angst, oh, she does love me, I am so stupid for not realising/I do love her, how could I have been so blind all my life?, one family freaks out, other family is cool with it, they finally get together and move in to a brand new house.

I did sometimes get the two protagonists confused, perhaps that's just me. It's not that they were not different in appearance or careers etc, however their style of speaking was very similar and I sometimes had to double check who was speaking. Aside from this, I found the novel relatively well written. A quick and easy read for an afternoon if you've got the time. ( )

I loved (still love, but read much less) Xena Fanfic and yet before reading MacGregor's published books I totally missed out on her online stuff and therefore also seemed to have missed the story that this series was based on.

So, this was all new for me, and boy was it interesting. MacGregor took two women and threw them into the aftermath of an earthquake. Stuck together in the remnants of a mall. Anna, a married vice president of a BMW dealer and Lily, a lesbian, legal aid family lawyer. It only gets more interesting from there.

It's a fairly typical lesbian fiction romance. Well written, not too many surprises, very, very well written sex scenes as well.

It does seem like it's not quite done at the end of the story, even more than usual for a book in a series, but luckily when I finally found this series I didn't have to wait too much as there were already three of the books out. ( )

Anna Rutherford nudged her luxury coupe one lane to the right, determined to get out of this jumbled mess. Freeway traffic was usually snarled in L.A., but today's was even worse than usual. With a GPS subscriber service, she could have checked for construction or accidents, but that option wasn't available in 1999, the last model year for her classic BMW 850. Her next car would have GPS . . . if she could ever bring herself to part with this one.
