Every paramedic's 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 Ross's 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?

THICKER THAN BLOOD is another amazing story by Anne Marie Citro. In this one, we meet Dakota, another one of the Sistas of the United Nations, a group of tight-knit friends known to get together for "Caesar Friday."
As the summary will tell you, Dakota is in a car accident that could have killed her if it wasn't for the fast response of EMT and ex-boyfriend, Caden. From there the ball is instantly rolling taking you on a bit of a Rube Goldberg ride as readers are forced to navigate the emotional ups and downs of everything that happens. Told in a mix of present and flashback, we are given the highlights of the developing relationship between Dakota and Caden and it is both sweet and sexy.
This is a story about second chances that will have you either tearing up or pumping your fist in elation. It's about overcoming horrific circumstances and bouncing back both physically and emotionally. It's about friendship and love that truly is thicker than blood.
And in case you were wondering and didn't look it up, I found this on Wikipedia: "A Caesar is a cocktail created and primarily consumed in Canada. It typically contains vodka, a Caesar mix (a blend of tomato juice and clam broth), hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce, and is served with ice in a large, celery salt-rimmed glass, typically garnished with a stalk of celery and wedge of lime."
