Inseverable (Carolina Beach #1) by Cecy Robson #BookReview #BookoftheMonth
I rarely fall in love with a New Adult book—and both Trinity's (and her friends') age and life experiences put this story firmly in NA territory—but I couldn't stop reading Inseverable.

Inseverable is a beautiful romance and a story worth dedicating a weekend to.
Inseverable is the June 2016 GraveTells Book of the Month.
