He came to find peace after seeing so much misery and death and she came for one last hurrah with her friends after college is over. They met on the beach…
Inseverable opens with Trinity and her childhood friends all coming to the beach to work as lifeguards and enjoy their last summer before careers, grad school, jobs, and the peace corps, in her case, pull them apart. Trin comes from money, but she’s a selfless, happy person with a huge heart. She can’t stand to see someone hurting and in need of rescue so she takes the grim, sad-eyed bartender at their favorite hangout as a challenge- and gets a shocker of her own when he helps mend what her cheating ex and ex-bestfriend did to her. But, she’s leaving on a two year stint at the end of the summer so just where can their attraction and budding feelings go?
Inseverable was so many things, but it was above all a delightful surprise and perfect for folks looking for a solid romance for their summer beach read. I knew I’d like it- hey, I love this author’s writing- and I knew I would get the feels mixed in with a few tickles to my funny bone. What I didn’t expect was the feeling that this was a whole new world. Unlike some authors, with Robson, a new series means a new series and a fresh start not just same story that got a white-washing. I think I loved that most of all. I love her other series, but I love that each is unique and special in its own way.
So, the story actually started out a bit rocky for me. I was not impressed with Trin. To be frank, I thought she was a flake and a pushy do-gooder all rolled into one. But, I trust the author, so I hung in there and tolerated the weirdo heroine much like Callaghan until I got to see past the surface into the heart of Trinity. Ah, there’s the smart, attractive, and adorable woman that all her friends glom onto and need at the center of their group. But, even when I was wincing over her antics, I loved that she was trying hard to get the broken and hurting soldier to get some joy from life and give her a try.
Callaghan had a really bad war. He was a sniper and saw and did stuff that won’t let him go. He’s trying to stay numb, but he’s holding on by a thread when Trinity comes along. I liked that she helped him have better day, but the author didn’t make the mistake of pretending that love and a good woman would fix him. It was neat that a surprising late entry to the story found him help and in a way that wouldn’t strip him of his pride.
It’s always the little things that this author gets very right. Oh, and the truly sexy men and fab women she puts in her romances.
The conflict in the book might seem like its just the act of getting this pair together as hard as Callaghan was resisting and as vulnerable as Trinity gets after she develops feelings when she wonders if she can trust him after what happened with her ex. But, no, Trin is holding something important back and readers will figure out that its only a matter of time when it blows up in her face. It wasn’t a cut and dry issue and pain was going to happen. Oh the feels!
In the end, I laughed, shook my head, swooned, squirmed, and felt like I’d had an amazing experience as usual. I can’t wait to see what comes next in the Carolina Beach series. Contemporary Romance fans looking for good times at the beach need to pick this one up.
