Indivisible by Jessica McQuinn

Description from Goodreads:

Charlie and Gideon Cooper's story begins where most romance stories end: at the happily ever after. Gideon's protective nature makes Charlie feel safe and happy in her new life as the wife of a Navy SEAL—until her happily comes crashing down around her. And though she’s surrounded by loving family and friends, instead of pulling together in the wake of Charlie’s ordeal, their secrets and wrong perceptions threaten to break them all apart. The experience will test the bond they share and determine whether Charlie and Gideon are truly Indivisible.

Jessica McQuinn skillfully pulls readers into the conflicting emotions of an entire family—the traumatized wife, the far-away husband, the inadequate younger brother, the over-nurturing mother. McQuinn lets readers see their strengths and their vulnerabilities—everything that makes them human. And all the while, she deftly weaves in entertaining interactions so readers get to know and adore the characters’ lighter sides, even as the story ventures into dark territory. Indivisible is an unforgettable story of the power of love and the importance of trust.

My Thoughts:

This story is different than most romances in the fact that it is not about a couple meeting and falling in love but rather a married couple struggling to remain together.

Gideon, Navel SEAL, and Charlie Cooper have been happily married for a year. On their one year anniversary Gideon is given the news that he is to leave in just a few short days for a six month deployment. Then their happily ever after seems to crack and fall to pieces.

Charlie tries to busy herself to keep her mind off the fact that her husband is out of reach being shot at for his country. She didn't think that this situation could get any worse until a traumatic event finds its way to her doorstep. And if the traumatic event wasn't enough to throw her into depression, her wonderful brother-in-law misreads the situation and tells Gideon that his wife is having an affair while he is in service.

But through all of these events we are able to see just how strong this couple really is.
