Review: Inseparable by Siobhan Davis

Synopsis/Cover Image from Amazon: 
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.


As soon as I saw the phrase "friends-to-lovers" in the synopsis I knew I had to have Siobhan Davis's Inseparable! Friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes, and I couldn't wait to see it explored here. 

The result? Complex, romantic, and deeply moving, Inseparable is an unforgettable addition to the new adult genre - one I will be thinking about for days to come. 

One of my favorite parts about Inseparable was the characters. They're complex as well as complicated. Sometimes I loved them and sometimes I despised them; however, no matter which extreme I felt I never once stopped rooting for them.

Angelina is the peacemaker of the three. She's someone who just wants everyone to get along and be happy, and I could understand that. Having mutual friends fight is the worst. Additionally, Angelina is very sweet as well as incredibly caring. Sometimes to the point that she was a tad bit naive, which had the tendency to get on my nerves. Over time, however, Angelina lost this naivety and my frustration dwindled. 

Ayden, on the other hand, is the golden boy. He's popular as well as a star on the football team. His personality reflects this. He's kind, mild-mannered, and sweet - the type of boy all parents love. There was something about him, though, that never clicked for me. I didn't not like him, but I also didn't like him at the same time. I could sense that there was something bad brewing under the surface, but I couldn't put my finger on what it was for the majority of the book. 

Devin is the rebel. He's reckless, picks fights where he shouldn't, and hurts the people he loves more than helps them. He's the kind of boy you know you shouldn't like, but you can't not like him. His family situation broke my heart. I also loved his little brother. That kid had no filter! Additionally, I enjoyed seeing Devin on his path of redemption. It had its ups and downs but I kept hoping he would come out on top. 

The story begins with a prologue where Angelina lets on that she's done something wrong - something she'll never be able to let go off - and it all started back her senior year. From that moment forward I was hooked. I wanted to know what Angelina had done and what the fall out had been from her actions. Additionally, Siobhan never strays from the hard topics in this book. While I won't go into what exactly they were, I will say she handled them well. The romance aspect of Inseparable, however, is what made this book unputdownable. It never had a clear cut path, and I constantly was changing my predictions. 

Perfect for fans of Abbi Glines, Linda Kage, and Jennifer Echols, Inseparable is a fast paced, emotionally driven tale of how love can hurt as well as heal. This may be my first book by Siobhan Davis, but it certainly won't be my last.

4 stars!!
