THICKER THAN BLOOD
Anne Marie Citro
Series: Sistas Book 3
Genre:†Contemporary Romance, New Adult Romance
Publication Date: May 5, 2017
Every paramedicís worst nightmare is to arrive at the scene of a horrific accident and find out that the victim is someone they love. Or, in Caden Rossís case, the woman he used to love. It took two years to finally get over Dakota and move on with his life, or so Caden believed, until he has to face the thought of a world without her. Nothing could have prepared the handsome, headstrong off-duty paramedic for the emotional upheaval of keeping the woman he once thought would be his forever alive.
Dakota Martineau appeared to have the world in the palm of her hand. She is beautiful, kind, has an adoring family, including her best friend and identical twin sister. She has a passion for incorporating her love of life, family, and her cultural background into her dream job with special needs kids. Then, in a life-altering crash, she discovers just how fragile life is. Thankful to be surrounded by an incredible group of friends who will help heal, not just her body, but also her soul, she knows she should be happy she is alive and on the mend, but Dakota is still tormented by the loss of her one true love.
How can you feel safe with the one person who hurt you the most? What road will Caden and Dakota take when they discover fate wreaked havoc on everything they thought was true?
Excerpt from Thicker Than Blood

“The door opened, and Dakota’s brother Maurice walked in with a stricken look. Koko was behind him, cradled by Brayden while she cried. Caden heard the girls all gasp, and then they started to cry, too.
He felt the blood drain from his face as the world tilted. He braced for the worst. They were going to tell him she didn’t make it. No, please, I want a second chance. He had to find out what her desperate declaration had meant in the car. He had to know.
He looked to Maurice for answers. “Tell me please.”
Maurice looked at Caden’s face, feeling sorry for him for the first time in over two years, realizing Caden still cared for his baby sister. He never knew why they had broken up. All he knew was she had been devastated, and he resented Caden for that.
“She’s still in surgery, but they believe she had a stroke on the table. Some Thrombotic—”
“A vascular bleed stroke, probably caused by the removal of the metal piece. It must have torn one of the main arteries to her brain,” Caden finished with the proper diagnosis.
“Yes,” Maurice replied. “The doctor said as much but they don’t know how much damage has been done. That was one of the assisting doctors. The surgeon is still working on her, and will come out and talk to us after he’s done.”
Caden’s paramedic training took over as he calmly explained the diagnosis to everyone gathered around. “They can’t determine the damage until she comes out of the anesthetic, when they can assess the location of the stroke. The doctors will look for neurological deficits, abnormalities in her mental status, and lack of movement in her limbs. All we can hope for is that they were able to repair the vein and minimal damage occurred.”
“Oh no, that doesn’t sound good at all,” Jocelyn replied on a cry as her hand flew to cover her heart.
“No, don’t misunderstand me,” Caden replied quickly, realizing he was freaking them out more. “Dakota is a very strong, healthy young woman, and that will all work to her advantage. If there is any damage, she will be able to have physical therapy and reteach her body everything she might have lost.”
“She works in conjunction with the physical therapists all the time. She will know how important her therapy is,” Taya jumped in. “I know her; she will have the determination to get better as soon as possible. Girls, remember when her student Naz had his stroke? She went to the hospital every other day to help him work on his physical therapy. If I remember correctly, she performed reiki, too. I’m sure he was back at school months before the doctors projected.”
“Caden watched as Koko’s face changed from concern to disgust as she listened to Dakota’s friends talk about Dakota’s talent in healing Naz’s little body.
“Are you serious? You can’t honestly believe in that mumbo-jumbo crap. Running your hands over someone’s body and pretending to heal it,” Koko scoffed. “I thought you girls were smarter than that.”
Ryder being Ryder, and not used to censoring his speech, spoke out of turn and nearly got them all kicked out. “Hope the witch didn’t park her broomstick too close to my car.”

I adore all of Citro’s books.
This book keeps you reading. It’s a journey that takes you through overcoming tragedy, overcoming lots and lots of heartbreak from family and lovers, and it teaches you the power of friendship and trusting with your heart.
