Inseverable: Callahan and Trinity
(Carolina Beach #1)
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.
Ive been on a Cecy Robson contemporary roll as of late. I’ve just torn through six of them back to back and I was still ready for more; however, I’m now out of books. Le Sigh… So anyway, I think this was one of my favorites! Ok so at first I was not on #TeamTrinity she was a bit to “peppy” for me.. But like she does with Callahan she really grew on me until I found her quite endearing and thinking I could totally be friends with this chick. She’s loyal, caring and will do anything for her friends and she goes after what she wants. And what she wants is Callahan and she sets off to get him. She’s a total sweetheart who doesn’t see her outer beauty. She’s one of those gorgeous girls who doesn’t know they are gorgeous. My only issue with Trin, is she doesn’t tell Callahan something very important, but if she had we wouldn’t have had a grand gesture later so I guess I’ll forgive her for it, because I liked the grand gesture. : )
Callahan, man, I felt so bad for him. He’s got PTSD pretty bad. He knows that he does, so at least there is that. He knows he needs some help but he’s not quite ready for that step. He has no intentions of letting someone as peppy and annoying as Trinity into his life. All of his grumbling is quite humorous but little by little she wears him down with her smile and her running in barely there tight workout wear. LOL She refuses to give up on him and eventually she breaks through. You really start to see Callahan come out of his shell as the pages turn. There are even a few moments between Callahan and Trins father that really connect as they are both ex-special forces.
I ended up loving these two together, they just made each other better. A light shines when these two are together and anyone around is likely affected. We also have a strong supporting cast. All of Trinity’s friends are pretty awesome and as loyal and fierce as she is. They band together when things get bad and close ranks. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I devoured it, and I can’t wait for the next one.
