I have a review further down for one of her books for you to read more!
Tia Benson is living her best life until one night takes away the only brother she ever knew. Now without a paramedic partner, Tia must learn how to navigate life on and off duty. Life doesn’t get much easier when she is forced to work with medics who only remind her of what she lost.
After losing her husband on the job, Carina Simpson’s life suddenly spirals out of control. The last thing she expected was to become a single mother overnight to three kids. Broken and alone, Carina takes a risk reaching out to the one person who could possibly understand her pain.
A friendship that begins through loss, gradually develops into something beautiful and unexpected, finding love as Endless as the Stars.
A teaser for you!
Carina heard the front door shut and closed her eyes. She heard someone coming downstairs and knew Tia was approaching.
“She’s why you put distance between us? Because she thinks I’m influencing you?” Tia sounded hurt.
Carina didn’t want to end up arguing with Tia too. “What I told you last night was true,” she defended.
“But not all true,” Tia retorted. Carina said nothing and that answer was enough. Tia shook her head. The idea that they were having this compromising conversation was unsettling. Tia felt something with Carina she shouldn’t have, and it needed to end. “You know, I’d never do anything to disrespect you or Bruce. Maybe coming here last night was a mistake. Because if anything, for the first time, I feel like I insulted his memories. They shouldn’t have found us like that.”
“Tia,” Carina called out as Tia turned to leave, headed for the front door. “Please!” They stood close, the front door in view. Carina pinched the bridge of her nose, a migraine from her mild hangover making its first appearance. “Why do you always try to leave when no one’s trying to kick you out? It’s like you’re trying to spare yourself.”
Tia waved her hands out, not knowing where to put them. A complication like this could ruin their friendship and Tia couldn’t imagine life without Carina and her kids. “I don’t ever want to do anything that would dishonor Bruce and the friendship we had.”
“You could never dishonor him, Tia. Neither could I nor my kids.” Carina reached for her hand, but Tia pulled back.
Carina wanted so badly for Tia to stop fearing the connection they had and just be emotionally present. “Tia, I’m not contemplating being with someone else in that kind of way. I’m barely emptying the house of Bruce’s things. I’m not ready for that.” Carina’s eyes teared up, trying to get Tia to see the truth. “I just like being near you.” Her voice softened almost to a whisper, vulnerable enough to share her thoughts. “You make me feel safe. And strong. I like knowing you can lean on me too. I missed you. Neither of us is doing anything wrong. And I’m not asking you to stay because you remind me of Bruce in some twisted way. I’m sorry, but you don’t look or act like him.” Carina smiled. “I like having you around. I tried the not having you around thing, and that didn’t work out for you nor me. We’re friends. That’s all I want and need from you.”
Tia cracked her knuckles, unsure what to think or believe.
Carina stepped forward, linking their fingers together. It amazed Carina how soft Tia’s hands were and how she never wanted to let go. “We need each other.”
Tia nodded. “Okay.”
