Liv got a phone call from the hospital. Her sister was dying, yet she has learned she can lean on Shock. He is making calls to assure a quick way to return so Liv can be with her. Tempest offered Liv comfort and she accepted it, even if it was only a hand on her back. Even as young as 8yrs old Liv had taken care of her sister as they grew up and her sister had always looked out for her. Liv decided to not turn Shock away this time used his strength and caring to carry on. There was a new and experimental drug and Shock ensured Liv that her sister would have the best that money could buy. On returning to Shock's house, Liv was surprised at the support from his friends and that they all seemed to care. This was a really good book. I highly recommend it.
