Book Tour ~ #Review ~ Thicker Than Blood Anne Marie Citro

How can you feel safest
with the person who has hurt you the most?
Thicker Than Blood
Anne Marie Citro
Series: Sistas Book 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult Romance
Publication Date: May 5, 2017
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?
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.
- Kristin Campbell, Goodreads Reviewer

Our Review:

Novels in third person, aren't my thing. I normally have a problem with the way they are written, but this one blew me away. This one, is so good. So we'll written. 

I absolutely loved catching up with this group of sista's and their love lives. I loved Frankie and Ryder's story in, Lyrics Heart & Soul, and Dakota and Caden's story wasn't any different. 

Dakota comes from a family of love. With a Native American mother and a French father, her life was full of culture. Which made for an exciting live. Her dream was to always work with kids with disabilities, but also to find new ways to help them. Her beliefs is what helps her career bloom like it does. She has has amazing friends, and a twin sister who is her best friend. Everything in her life is perfect, until the love of her life breaks her hurt in the worst way possible. 

Caden has only ever had one dream, to be a paramedic and help save lives. Even though he could have an amazing career as a professional football player, he gives it up so he can do good. His best friend Koko, doesn't understand that and try to push him to be better. But saving lives and spending his life with his girlfriend is all he needs to be happy. That is until that said girlfriend destroys every amount of trust he had in her. One day while off duty, he comes upon a crash. Without thinking he rushes in to help. Little did he know, the person inside is the girl he never stopped loving. 

How can two people move past each betraying the other? Or did they? 

This story boggled my mind.!! Oh man!! So much more than what I thought I was getting and oh so good.

Thicker Than Blood Teaser
Playlist for Ticker Than Blood

I spent my whole life listening to rock and raunchy pop music. It was unheard in my world to cross the line to country. I was terrified I would have my rock chick status ripped from me. But the characters of this book love country music and I had to discover a whole new genre of music. Can I tell you I fell head over heels in love?
My favorite playlist is now country. I had to ask family, friends and co-workers their favorite songs or artists and then listen to all sorts of songs until I found what I was looking for. I love how in country music every song tells a story. I had to write a song for my last book and let me tell you it is easier to write a novel then a song. It is hard enough to try to fit a whole story in a novel that is four hundred pages, let alone one page.
I love how music can make you feel so many emotions. It can make you laugh, feel good or it can make you cry your eyes out. I have so much respect for song writers. Often, I will I make stories up for songs because I am dying to figure what inspired the writer.
If you have never been a fan of country music give it a try I promise you won’t regret it. But be prepared to feel a so many different emotions. Check out my website for pictures of the destinations they travel to in the book as well as listen to the playlist.
