Anne Marie Citro
Series: Sistas Book 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult
Publication Date: August 1, 2016
Wishing for death while living through hell, Gabriella is rescued off the rocks of a Scottish loch at the lowest moment of her life by the hot, humorous Edward and the sexy, staid Liam. The two men nurse the despondent woman back to health while teaching her how to pick up the pieces of her life. Both are captivated by her and vie for her attention.
Friendships are formed and secrets revealed. One man will become her lover, while the other becomes her best friend. Together, they have a past they cannot change, a present they must live through, and a future yet to be discovered. However, every time things appear to settle down for the trio, fate deals another blow, testing their trust and faith in each other and the love they have created.
Gabriella discovers the beauty of Scotland and life anew as she learns that trust is a two-way street that can either strengthen bonds or destroy relationships. Will she accept all that she learns or continue to believe she is betraying the memories she ran from?
Fantastic read!! Loved it from start to finish. ... The book was romantic, sad and funny. It made me laugh and cry. The story kept me intrigued and I just wanted to keep on reading as there was never a dull moment. I highly recommend reading this book.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I am absolutely floored by how absolutely emotionally beautiful this story is. This story is absolutely incredible from the beginning to the end. It takes a lot in a story to make me tear up but tears were flowing by the end of this story. It’s a very emotionally heavy story but it’s absolutely stunning.  The author did such a great job writing the story.

You’ll laugh, you’ll likely cry, you’ll swoon, and your heart will break. It’s a mixture of absolutely beautifully raw emotions. It’s full of love and laughter. It’s a fun read and a serious read. It’s a story of an absolute tragedy that becomes a beautiful love story. It’s about finding yourself and figuring out what makes you happy. It’s absolute perfection.

I have to admit, this story really took me back to some dark days in my past. It reminded me of a huge loss that I suffered and brought back memories of the attempts and failures at healing. It also reminded me of how important it was to reach deep inside and find yourself and let others be there and let them love you. I think that the author did such a great job writing these scenes. She took great care in describing these scenes and relating to her audience.

Details and descriptions are perfect. They set the scenes for perfect visualization and the ability to disappear into the story. They give you enough detail to visualize what’s going on but leave out just enough detail to allow you to add your own little details. The scenery sounds absolutely beautiful. It makes a girl want to go on a vacation!

I think my absolute favorite part of this book was how strong the bond of family was. It didn’t matter whether they were blood family or not. Family was family and that bond was unbreakable. It was a fierce relationship and a relationship to dream of. I think that message is one of the most important messages that an author can portray to their readers!

If you couldn’t tell, I absolutely adored this book. I adored the writing style, the characters, the descriptions, and details.  There wasn’t anything about this book I didn’t enjoy.  The characters were great and had a fierce bond. The details made me want to go on vacation. The author is an amazing writer that can really reach out to their readers and burrow herself into our hearts.
