Aftershock Review

Aftershock (Afterburn & Aftershock, #2)Aftershock by Sylvia Day

America’s premier author of provocative fiction delivers the dramatic finale to a series set within the inner circle of glamour, sex and privilege.

When it came to playing games, my lover Jax was a master strategist. He pulled strings behind the closed doors of D.C.’s most powerful political players, and somehow still found time to nearly sideline my career. What he didn’t know was that when I didn’t like the rules, I threw them out and made my own. I wasn’t going to let Jax get away with it. I wasn’t going to let him get away at all.

I loved Jax enough that it was impossible to give up. Jax loved me enough that giving up was the only end he’d consider. He didn’t think I could swim with the sharks. It was entirely my pleasure to show him that I’d already dived in…

Claire's Review 4 of 5 Stars

The second instalment of the story of Gia and Jax and I was glad I read part 1 and 2 back to back as otherwise I wouldn't have remembered key facts. I think these would have been better as a full book and not as two singles to be honest, as I felt a lot of important details about their relationship as well as the lives of other characters that felt skimmed over.

I enjoyed this book but not as much as the first part, I would have liked to have seen more detail which couldn't be possible in such a short read and I felt that effected the enjoyment for me. I also felt the ending felt rather rushed again since it was such a short story. I would love to see Gia and Jax again in a full length novel.
