|A gritty, angsty, friends-to-lovers standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis.
A childhood promise. An unbreakable bond. One tragic event that shatters everything.
It all started with the boys next door…
Devin and Ayden were my best friends. We were practically joined at the hip since age two. When we were kids, we thought we were invincible, inseparable, that nothing or no one could come between us.
But we were wrong.
Everything turned to crap our senior year of high school.
Devin was turning into a clone of his deadbeat lowlife father—fighting, getting wasted, and screwing his way through every girl in town. I’d been hiding a secret crush on him for years. Afraid to tell him how I felt in case I ruined everything. So, I kept quiet and slowly watched him self-destruct with a constant ache in my heart.
Where Devin was all brooding darkness, Ayden was the shining light. Our star quarterback with the bright future whom everyone loved. But something wasn’t right. He was so guarded, and he wouldn’t let me in.
When Devin publicly shamed me, Ayden took my side, and our awesome-threesome bond was severed. The split was devastating. The heartbreak inevitable.
Ayden and I moved on with our lives, but the pain never lessened, and Devin was never far from our thoughts.
Until it all came to a head in college, and one eventful night changed everything.
Now, I’ve lost the two people who matter more to me than life itself. Nothing will ever be the same again.
A standalone new adult contemporary romance with a happy ending. Only suitable for readers aged eighteen and older due to mature content and possible triggers.
|Ahm wow…. Yeah so this is me thinking about Inseparable by Siobhan Davis. It was the first book I ever read by this author and to make one thing clear – it will not be my last if I see one with a blurb that appeals to me.
And the other thing is I was a little scared about the plot of this book because obviously we have one girl and two guys here and no matter how you turn it to every normal thinking person it is obvious that someone will get hurt along the way. How much and how deep – well that is in the hands of the author.
So YES this book will hurt – there is no nice way to say it so I am telling it like it is.
There is no way that I am telling you how or why it hurt – only one thing – I am so angry with one of the leading characters – I am not sure if it is allowed to be angry with him considering the facts of the plot but I am and I am not willing to hide that ….
And my anger is divided in two sections the first is my anger at him for not trusting his friends and the second is for torturing them. There would have been circumstances where I would have understood his actions but the one given to me as a reader was not good enough – sorry but there is no sugarcoating here from my side.
This book touches so many different areas of life that it is hard to express my thoughts in a general way that does not give away spoilers. It is just that the author has an amazing ability to twist and turn the story in a way that you realize really quick that she will not spare the characters. The three leading characters as well as the side characters were all developed amazingly well and had such intense plotlines that I as a reader felt like I was put through a blender while reading.
I think you should not read any reviews containing them because knowing stuff will take away from the plot (trust me I am probably one of the few people that usually needs spoilers to decide to read a book)
It was a shock to see it has “only” 450 pages – yeah I know in the age of 150 page novels this is a lot but reading this book it felt more like it was about 1000 pages because there is so much in there that it sometimes feels like you have been with these characters a lifetime.
So again – yes it hurts – (Usually I would say “enjoy” – but I am not sure I can do that this time…….– but I think you should read this book anyway.
