How can you imagine forever with someone who's leaving everything behind?

Callahan, a former army sniper, wants to make an escape from his past and everything he experienced at war, but most of all, just not feel. Feeling leads to pain and he's suffered enough. When he inherits a house on South Carolina's Kiawah Island, he packs his bags, lured by the peace and seclusion he thinks it will bring. But, Callahan never counted on meeting anyone like Trinity . . .

Trinity has always been the cute, and funny one, who most guys overlook in pursuit of her "hot" friends. She became used to being everyone's pal, until the day the young man she was attracted to, was drawn to her in return. He became her first great love, and first crushing heartbreak when she found him in bed with one of her closest friends.

To move forward, and to carry out her commitment to helping those in need, Trinity enlists in the Peace Corps, but not before returning to Kiawah for one last memorable summer. She just never imagined it would be so unforgettable.

Callahan doesn't want to get close to anyone-let alone Trinity. He finds her perkiness insufferable and her attempts to entice a smile distracting. After all, he's in Kiawah to leave all feelings behind. But when it comes to Trinity, who feels everything, it's hard not to feel something.

Neither expected to fall in love. And no one could have predicted how inseverable they'd become.

You know that saying "it's me, not you"? Those four little words that nobody wants to hear when they are in a relationship? When I was just starting Inseverable, I very nearly muttered that saying as I was on the brink of gently "breaking up" with the book. Prior to reading Inseverable, I had just finished an emotionally gripping romantic suspense book and all I really wanted to read was a fun, flirty contemporary romance that would cheer me up. However, I knew that I needed to start Cecy Robson's newest book. So I started it one night... And immediately hit a brick wall. That's where "it's me, not you" came into play. As a firm believer that there is a perfect time for every book, it just was not the time for this one. I took a moment to ponder what I should do next. I knew I didn't want to give up on it because I've heard so many wonderful things about the author and I've been wanting to pick up one of her books. Rather than breaking up (so to speak), I took a break for a night and decided to start fresh the next day. And I'm really glad I did because, in the end, I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent on the emotional roller coaster this book sent me on. 

Knowing that Inseverable was an emotional romance did not prepare me for the love and heartbreak we experience right along with the characters. I had a bit of a mixed reaction towards the two main characters. I loved Callahan. The journey he embarks on throughout the book was breathtaking. Going from deeply wounded to being able to love sent my heart soaring. I loved him and wanted to hug him from the moment he appears in the prologue. As for Trinity... Well, let's just say that it took me several chapters before I warmed up to her only for her to nearly lose me again at the end. I believe she means well, but I kept wanting to tell her to calm down. At first her outgoing personality was a bit much, but once I realized that Callahan needed her abrasiveness to pull him from the darkness, I started to warm up to her and I finally started liking her near the mid-point of the book. She's a great friend and is more than willing to help those in need. I loved that about her character. I just wish she was more honest with herself and with Callahan. More importantly, both Callahan and Trinity felt real. You're not going to like every aspect of a person's personality, but that's okay. Through thick and thin, I never stopped rooting for them to find happiness together.

Inseverable is a must read for any new Cecy Robson fans. From Cecy's writing style to the characters, everything was well developed and soulful. It was an emotional and sexy romance that I know will haunt me for some time. I can't wait to see what she has in store for Hale, Becca, and the rest of the Carolina Beach clan.
