Inseparable by Sloan Johnson Blog Tour

Trevor and Gabe never knew life without the other. As only children, they grew up as close as brothers, but their love grew to something more. Something they couldn't talk about because their parents wouldn't understand.

Gabe is gay and unapologetic about his sexuality. He refuses to live his life in the shadows, but that doesn't mean he isn't harboring secrets.

Trevor is his parents’ miracle child and he doesn’t want to hurt them. Coming out, admitting he's in love with Gabe, could ruin everything.

Heading off to college was supposed to finally free them to be together, but nothing is as easy as it seems. Can they find a way to navigate this new world, living and loving openly?

Sloan Johnson has quickly turned into one of my go-to m/m authors. Her stories are gripping and emotional with just the right mix of sexy. Once I got my hands on Inseparable, I finished it in one sitting. I had to know what was going to happen between Trevor and Gabe!

Trevor and Gabe are best friends. They grew up together and fell in love. Going to the same college and living in the same dorm is going to be the time they need to finally be together without sneaking around. They are both tired of hiding who they are to each other. But all the big dreams they had of what college was going to be like are diminished when they find out it's nothing like they were expecting.

Inseparable is about fighting for that person that makes your heart skip a beat. I loved Gabe and Trevor, it's the perfect story of finding themselves and finding out how to live in their new reality.

And of course, Ms. Johnson pulls no punches with the heartstrings in this one!!

3.5 Stars

Inseparable is the short journey between a pair of best friends who've known each other inside and out since birth. Their families are close, mothers especially, and they've kept their relationship a secret as they ended their high school career.

With the escape of college, Gabe and Trevor are rooming together, finally taking their relationship to the next level. Gabe is an open book to Trevor, a heart-on-the-sleeve type of guy, whereas Trevor is terrified to come out, leaving Gabe to feel as if he's a dirty secret to be kept behind the locked door of a closet.

Sugary sweet, the entire time I was reading, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop into angsty drama territory, because the novel was always on a romance high, from start to finish. The same feel from page one until nearly the end, the only conflict self-created.

For readers looking for an easy, quick read, wanting a book that doesn't stress them out, never fear – other than an irrational miscommunication scene, with Trevor's fear causing him to keep their relationship in neutral, don't worry something major is going to leap out at you from the pages.

Inseparable was a romantic read, between a pair of best friends, navigating a new world.

Another great story by Sloan Johnson. This book just made my heart melt. Trevor and Gabe had one heck of a ride. We saw all the ups and downs that happen in all relationships, and how to get through it all and still come out on the other end. I loved these guys and their story. I would think this would be a good book for young adults to read as well.

This is a sweet and angsty story about two best friends starting their first year of college together. Gabe and Trevor grew up together. Their families are inseparable and somewhere along the way they fell in love with each other.

At its best, this story captures some of the magic of first love and some of the anxieties faced by the two boys as they start adulting and adjusting to life on their own. These two are sweet and at times they struggle to find space to develop as individuals while nurturing their relationship. But this is a slow story and there is far more angst than the situations probably merited.

At times, this story felt like a parent’s slightly wishful take on the college freshman experience. Trevor and Gabe’s sexual boundaries and hang-ups really didn’t make sense to me. They are lifetime BFFs who are constantly anxious about going too far and moving too fast. It didn’t feel terribly realistic. These two are far too chaste and way too involved with their parents. Teenage boys like Trevor and Gabe might exist – but I’ve never met any. As the story progressed, I found their sexual boundaries and hang-ups pretty irritating.

This is a low heat romance that reads more like a young adult book than a new adult book. Gabe and Trevor feel really young and their helicopter parents are always a little bit too involved in their college lives.

3.5 stars of inseparability

This is the perfect read for the end of a long or difficult week. It is soft and loving and brings all the warm feelings that a longtime friendship can, as well as the usual run of ups and downs. The abiding knowledge that they have of everything about each other is reassuring and romantic.

It is so usual in a romance that there is a point where it could all go terribly wrong, that I kept waiting for it to happen – and as the pages counted down, I started to believe that it didn't need a major drama, and was happy that in the end, the title was exactly what they achieved.

Sloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s life. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass.

When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.

Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?

Now, Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.
