My Beloved Past by Anne Marie Citro is the fifth book in the Sista's series and it is quickly becoming my favorite series. This is the story of Zara and Jake, two people who are fighting the past and trying to make their future. I love the fact that author Anne Marie Citro creates some of the strongest and most determined characters. While Zara is rebuilding her life and trying to rise from the ashes, Jake is trying to find a way to live with his past while also staying focused on the future. Zara is a strong woman who is determined to make a good life for herself while Jake is trying to find that one person that made his life bright. He wants to help Zara, but at her pace and only if she is willing. I loved that and I loved their chemistry. This story is just beautiful!
