Broken Heart Syndrome

 

Shy, reclusive Frankie and her best friend Lou obsess over Thomas G. Longley, as they reverently refer to him, for their entire first two years of medical school. So when he publically humiliates her at the student bar she is devastated.

 

Ten years later, Frankie has to work in the testosterone driven environment of Cardiology before she can start her palliative care training and, to her dismay, Tom is her boss.

 

Her long-term crush seems not to remember her and has changed from the easy going guy she remembers to an uptight critical bully. She might be too intimidated to tell him to jog on when she's his only target, but when it's her patients he starts trampling she decides to grow a backbone and Tom starts to realise that she might not be the cold, aloof woman he once thought.

Beyond Repair

 

Loveable, scatty, beautiful, bubbly Katie: with her huge sense of fun and innate kindness everybody thinks she’s adorable. Well, everybody it seems but Sam. Sam is anything but bubbly. His surly personality is the complete opposite of Katie’s, and, over the six years she has known him for one thing has become clear to Katie: Sam cannot stand her. 

 

Katie may be bubbly and bright but unfortunately her past is not, and it’s started leaking into her present.  She hides her fear from her friends as they have problems of their own, but when Sam finds out the potential danger she’s in, for some reason he is furious.

 

Sam knows he should stay away from her but he simply can’t stand by if Katie is in danger; he can’t allow her to be hurt. Unfortunately there are other ways to be hurt, and by getting closer to Katie, Sam may inflict more damage than her past ever could.

 

Because Sam is damaged, and some things are beyond repair.

Sticks and Stones

 

For Lou it was always Dylan. She loved him practically from the first moment they met over the dissection table at medical school. But Dylan preferred quiet, sweet women like Lou's best friend Frankie rather than 'a high maintenance, ball-breaking, bitch' as Lou heartbreakingly overhears him describe her. 

 

So she buries her pain and pines for him in private, but she can't give up their friendship. One night, eleven years later, she finally gets what she has been longing for, but the next morning realizes he was too drunk to even remember. She's used to burying painful memories and decides to add it to the list of secret heartaches she hides from the world.

 

But when their friendship is tested and Dylan turns on her, she decides enough is enough, and Dylan learns how empty his life would be without her.
