    WOW!

    An astonishing story about growing, growing as a human being, to be the person you are meant to be, growing in a relationship, as you hopelessly, helplessly, and utterly are falling in love. Such a beautiful tale, it took my breath away, and left me in awe, needing a moment to regroup myself. The story is told in first person, and from both, Trinity and Callahan's point of view. As often with the 1st POV, the angst, the tension is high. You feel the pain, the hurt, the joy, the fear, and you feel it so much more intensely. And there's lots of the pain, that both Trinity and Callahan carry with themselves, though very different kind. Trinity's self esteem was low, because of her past relationship and the way it ended, with betrayal and lies. Callahan, he is in pieces after his experience in the war, as a sniper. Together, they grow, their wounds heal, the feelings get deeper, and love blooms, so fragile, yet there. But it isn't all smooth riding, without any waves. The story, it doesn't only break the heart, it felt like it shattered the soul, and then brought it back again, anew, better, healed, stronger. There are moments of such deep pain, sorrow, hurt, yet they are balanced with joy, glee, lust, and passion. There's heat, that makes you blush, and moments that got a deep belly laugh out of me. Laugh that just continued on and on, because Trinity, her mother, and really Sean as well, all provide some comic relief at times. I loved the respect the author paid to the servicemen and women, the pain and wounds they carry after their experiences, are deep, and often overlooked. I loved how the necessary care for them, and their needs, were highlighted in the story. The bonding between Callahan and Trinity's father was beautiful, as two men, who has faced the unthinkable, helped each other heal, deal with the past, and be whole again. This is a story, that no two people will read the same tale, one will see it as an incredibly hot and sexy love story, that it is. Other, will see it as the story of a wounded soldier, the healing process that is needed after all the pain and death of a war. There's the fun summer on the beach, lifeguards, the human interactions, the poor boy falling in love with the rich girl in the south, and the consequences of that, the reactions of their families. There's so much in this story, that it truly filled my mind, my heart, did good for my soul. ~ Five Spoons

    Great summer read!

    Inseverable is the first story in Cecy Robson's new adult series Carolina Beach. I've read a couple of her Shattered Past novels and really enjoyed them, and the plot (and cover!) of this new story appealed to me so I was quite happy to pick it up for review. Trinity is spending one more summer on Kiawah Island as a head lifeguard, before heading off in the fall for a two year Peace Corps assignment. She's had her heart broken once but it hasn't stopped her cheerful, indomitable spirit. She's determined to enjoy this one last summer with her friends and co-workers. She's not looking for a relationship, but the quiet newcomer behind the bar at her favourite hang out calls to her. Callahan is recently retired from his stint in the army, and using the summer, and the house he inherited from his uncle on the island to take stock of his life. He suffers from PTSD and isn't interested in making any friends. But Trinity manages to slip past his guard and suddenly the future doesn't look so desolate anymore. But what will happen when he finds out the woman he's losing his heart to doesn't plan to stick around? Oh my goodness, do I love Trinity! She has to be one of my absolute favourite female characters that I've read in a new adult romance. Her cheerful indomitable spirit and unflagging optimism, combined with her friendly and generous actions and attitude made her such a sweetheart! She definitely comes across as the friend you can count on in a pinch and the one you can call when you're in trouble. She loves everyone and everyone loves her - well, except for Callahan. To Callahan, who is absolutely not looking for any kind of friend as he sorts through his life, Trinity is like this annoying butterfly that keeps flitting around him. It was so funny the way he kept trying to ignore her, and she just kept coming back to coax him out of his shell, going so far as to show up really early on his morning run routes and making it her mission to coax a smile out of him. I just loved her genuine concern and care for Callahan and how she could sense that he needed someone to be persistent in their attention to prove to him that he was worth befriending. As Callahan starts to return her attentions, things heat up between them and a red-hot summer affair is the result. While the initial part of the story was full of laughs and good humour as Trinity worked her magic on Callahan, it does turn to a more emotional story as Callahan shares his PTSD issues with Trinity (once he trusts her). Your heart breaks for this young man and what he's gone through in his short life, but at the same time there is the hope that Trinity's efforts will be a balm to his soul. I confess there were some tears on my end at some parts of the story to mingle with the laughs - but that just goes to show how involved I became in their relationship and how much I was rooting for this couple to succeed. But Trinity, when she realizes that she and Callahan are really coming to care for each other, knows that she's made a mistake - her friends know she's leaving at the end of the summer but Callahan doesn't. Now that he's found his heart and home with her, how can she rip that away from him? Aagh! So much tension in that second half as you wait for the news to come out and the fallout. It doesn't seem possible that there could be a happy ending but the author skillfully weaves it all together into a truly wonderful (and sexy!) romance with a happy ending. I loved meeting all of Trinity's friends too (lots of laughs in this group of obviously dedicated long time friends) and I can't wait to read the next story in this series! 5 stars for a perfect summer beach read!
